Plenty of free tables, people waiting and three not interested receptionists trying to figure out what the seating is, or should be or maybe they are just taking about the weather....depressing and pathetic. Plenty of better choices in the area.

We were very pleased. We had reservations and only had a modest wait! Once we sat down the food just kept coming! The flavors were fantastic! Service & entertainment was great! We heard this was the best Kobe's, better than others in the area! We thought it was the best! Highly recommended!

There was [6] adults and [1] 8 month old; plus one couple from out of town with a 10 month old; we were sort of jammed in at the Hibachi grill; but we made a party out of it and had a great time. The staff is very entertaining and the Food is wonderful....don't go there if you are not... More

Enjoyed our late lunch. Ordered Ahi Tuna and it came out cooked perfectly. Panda was our chef and food was fantastic. He was funny and fast. Keep the table entertained. Look forward to returning on our next visit.

My boyfriend and I come here all the time and we absolutely love everything about it! The food is amazing, portions are giant! The employees are great despite one hostess that we had issues with before. We love yabu and twee! They are both so sweet to us!

Three of us visited while on holiday in Orlando and pre booked a table. We shared our dining and cooking table with three Local couples. The locals helped us understand the format of the menu and once understood we went for steak and lobster. The mains and accompaniments are cooked in front of you on a hot plate. Our chef... More

The service was good here- very attentive and timely. The food was delicious and well prepared. The decor is a bit outdated and dark. For the price and the good food quality, it would be expected that the tables and chairs and overall area was nicer. The tables are very close together as well- we felt like we were sitting... More
