Steak meets Teppan Grill - Yum! – Large dining room with many large Teppan Grill tables; menu full of steaks, unique & fun! Beers, drinks, great food!
Great Place To Eat – We had a blast at KOBE last weekend. Food was great! It was just a fun, different place to eat. You do come out smelling like the food though, and maybe with shrimp down your shirt!
Poor customer service – The food and service once you are seated was excellent. I was very disappointed that they didn't go by reservations. When I inquired why others where seated before me he said they had a reservation. I told him we had a reservation and pointed to it on the book, and it was two names before the people he seated. All he could say was he was sorry.
DO NOT GO HER TO EAT! VERY BLAND PLAIN FOOD YOU COULD EASILY MAKE AT HOME! – My dining experience at westport for valentine's day weekend was the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. The manager SHOUTED at us TWICE from across the room when our table was ready, but we we're trying to close our bar tab! They sat us down shoulder to shoulder with strangers, handed us our menu, and IMMEDIATELY asked us what we wanted to eat! I said I wasn't ready yet and she stood there waiting! The lights inside were too bright and you couldn't enjoy the view outside from the 12th level. The food seemed like every person's meal was mixed together with everyone else's and with all the same seasoning regardless of what they ordered. I could have cooked plain food like that at home, for less money. The chef cooked our food in about 20 minutes and they brought us our checks as if kicking us out! The chefs we're not very impressive and I don't like how everyone at the table got the same meal basically. I felt very rushed! The girl stood waiting for our money! We had to finish eating in the lounge! The place was very loud, the soup was literally JUST broth. The only thing nice about the whole place was the english speaking bartender who made us extremely strong drinks.
Fantastic and Fun – If you are looking for a fun night and don't mind the chatter of surrounding people, I recommend you try this experience at least once and a while. This was my first time at Kobe Steak House of Japan and I was looking forward to it. Here's my experience:
I met our singles group from Christian Faith Center Church, 2003 Chambers Rd, St Louis, MO 63136, 314-867-6132, for Valentine's Day. There was 13 in our group. The tables we were at where only large enough for 7 people at a time. We were in a nice size room were the 7 people tables faced each other so we were still able to interact with everyone in the group because we ended up in a circle.
We were served at 2 tables so we had 2 waiters/waitress, the only problem incountered was our 1st waitress was slow & the 2nd waiter was a little rude. Management sent a replacement for the 2nd and the night went well after that. The wait for our tables was longer than expected but we did go on Valentine's Day.
The food was great. I ordered their vegetable dish and steamed rice. The food is cooked in front of you and added to your plate as you eat. I had so much food I ended up taken quite a bit home. The chef was interactive and funny. I liked watching them toss a piece of meat for you to catch. It was hilarious because some missed and some didn't. For the price is was well worth it and better than I expected.
After this experience, I am going to go back and take my family with me for special occasions, like my birthday coming up in March, 08.
Very nice sit down dinner! – I was having a going away party becuase I was leaving for the military and I had heard it was a good place to eat. The food was amazing. It was well woth the money to go. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the food. The food was made to order right in fornt of you. You told them when your meat was done. The service was amazing.
GREAT SHOW AND FOOD FOR THE MONEY – WE HAD A PARTY OF EIGHT TO CELEBRATE MY HUSBAND'S 50TH BIRTHDAY. I CALLED AHEAD AND MADE ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE BIRTHDAY BANZAI FOR AN EXTRA $4.95. FOR THE BANZAI THEY SANG A SONG, HE BLEW OUT A CANDLE , TOOK A POLARID, AND BROUGHT OUT A PIECE OF PINEAPPLE. FOR THIS THEY MADE A BIG DEAL OUT OF MAKING PRIOR ARRANGEMENTS. LONG STORY SHORT, DON'T WASTE THE FIVE BUCKS, BUY THE BIRTHDAY PERSON A DRINK INSTEAD. THAT SAID, I MUST TELL YOU THE FOOD WAS SOME OF BEST I'VE EVER EATEN AND THE SHOW WAS GREAT. OUR PARTY CONSISTED OF TWO CHILDREN(10 AND 11), A HIGH SCHOOL FRESHMAN, AND FIVE ADULTS, ALL OF US ENJOYED THE DINNER. THE COST IS WELL WORTH IT. OUR BILL FOR THE EIGHT DINNERS AND DRINKS WAS UNDER TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. WE WILL GO BACK AT THE NEXT BIG CELEBRATION.
Good food. Service was kind of disappointing. – We went here for my birthday on a Saturday night. It was just my boyfriend and I and we had a reservation for 8:15pm. We got there about 10 minutes early. They told us it would be a few minutes so we had a set in the bar. We waited at least 30 minutes!!! We I told them that it was my birthday they said that I had to tell them in advance in order for them to celebrate it and now they wouldn't do anything for it.
Great for a Birthday Celebration!! – I went here on a Friday night with a large group to celebrate a birthday. I highly recommend reservations on the weekend. The portions are large and they offer boxes to take home the leftovers. The atmosphere is fun and service is great!!
A Lot of Food at a Great Price – Last night, May 16, 2006 I went to Kobe with my brother-in-law. We got the Shogun dinner for two and both of us needed to take a nap afterwards because there was so much food to eat. They start you with soup, then salad, then a choice of fried rice or steamed rice. The fried rice is at least two times the serving size of the steamed rice and we were happy that we chose the steamed rice in the end. Then we had steak, lobster, shrimp, and noodles. Our total bill was $74 dollars and I had 4 frozen drinks and he had 3 beers. It was a great value and we left having eaten way too much. I wish we would have boxed some up!
