I can't tell you how much to avoid this place. We were practically ignored at the bar the whole time we were there. We ordered some sushi and rolls and it took forever to get made. Once we did get them they weren't tasty at...More

We recently had lunch here under time restraints (20 minutes). Luckily we were the first customers that day and our sushi and rice bowl arrived in about 10 minutes. The salad was dismissible iceberg lettuce drenched in 1000 Islands, but the miso soup was good....More

Kobe is located in Shockoe Slip district of Richmond. It is a nice restaurant with reasonable pricing. We ordered some sushi which was fresh and of good quality. It is a place I definitely would come back to.

We ate at Kobe on our trip to Richmond. The chef was wonderful and it was great experience but I think that's what you're really paying for. Our meal (my husband and myself) came to $70. I had the ribeye (about 6 oz.) fried rice,...More

The chef was very entertaining and the actual meal was really good. The soup was colored water, no taste at all. The salad was a bowl of dressing with pieces of lettuce in it

Please do not patronize this restaurant as management has a clear DISREGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE. I went to this restaurant for a friends birthday dinner with reservations at 8. Although our whole party was present we weren't served until 10pm. Upon eating the salad I...More
