My husband and I have 3 kids ages 1, 7 and our first baby whom turned 10 today 😳 MY daughter requested A Hibichi for her birthday dinner. We reside in Brevard and took the trip to Kissimmee/Orlando to celebrate her big day. When we...came to Kobe, we were told that we would be on a 20 minute wait. Within 5 minutes we were sat. Our server was Mike whom was absolutely 💯 amazing. We got our drinks within 2 minutes. He was super sweet, acknowledged everyone that was in his presence and drinks was always refilled. I have been in the hospitality industry for 18 years and i am still. My husband and I dont ever get to go out and to have this type of service is soooo worth it. Our Chef was Chef Kazuki. He was amazing , hilarious, acknowledged both of my children and the fact it was my daughters birthday. To top it off... the FOOD... OMG... the first taste of the soup, salad, fried rice and etc was absolutely phenomenal 👌 the best tasting food I have had in forever. The manager Tony Lo was soo attentive. Came by to ask of everything was good and said Happy Birthday to my little girl. He also came back and was there to sing Happy Birthday to her. She was soo happy. It felt soo good to be catered for when for the past almost 2 decades I have catered for others. My family and I will be back soon. This restaurant is top of the line and highly recommendedMore

Update on a favorite Japanese Steakhouse. Reservations asking for hold credit card. Seating was swift. Apps and drinks immediately. Waiter and chef courteous. Scallop dinner priced at 38$ was served with more scallops and bigger portion. Filet mignon is similar at 28$, scallops 39$. 18%...upcharge included, be careful not to over tip. No additional tip registers as no tip and should say additional tip if you want to add more. Kids chicken kicked at 11 bucks. You can’t beat this restaurant best in the area for Japanese steak. We went to the Lake Buena Vista restaurant.More

Orlando is our favorite place to visit. Traveling there so frequently, we have our usual spots that we have come to love over the years. We are adding the Kobe Japanese Steakhouse to that list! This was definitely different from our norm, but we enjoyed...it so much. The food was excellent and the teppanyaki was wonderful. I felt he truly wanted to make sure we were satisfied. We will definitely visit again!More

Great atmosphere from the lighting and fish ponds in lobby to the great table side habachi. Our granddaughter had never been and was thoroughly impressed with everything. We ate our fill and took food home. The service was top notch. Nice start to our mini...vacay in Orlando. Florida is open.More

Hidden Gem off Palm Parkway. This Japanese Steakhouse is an excellent place to have a nice dinner and celebrate a special occasion. The atmosphere is fun and entertaining. The food is fresh, cooked to order and very flavorful. The service was 5 stars plus. I...highly recommend the sirloin steak and shrimp or hibachi chicken with shrimp. The portions are large and not skimpy in any way Prices are reasonable for what you get with your meal.More

This was soooo good. Always great service. Yuki and Natalie were wonderful. The floor manager kept things running smoothly but we never felt rushed. Filet and shrimp and chicken was perfect

Just a fun place to eat. Chef Kazuki was entertaining and served up some very tasty chicken and fillet. Our server was also just wonderful and we never wanted for anything. We were seated with a very nice family from Georgia that was also celebrating...a birthday. Everyone was properly masked; restaurant and bathrooms were clean. Would not hesitate to go back here. Don't forget to sign up online for your free birthday meal.More

Depends. If you are looking for Hibachi style, they sat 3 of us next to a couple, at an angle with plexiglass separating us. It was fine.
