As a birthday dinner, one of our friends made a reservation for fourteen at Kobe. We were told that we would be split into two parties, possibly in two rooms. When we arrived, we had a short wait, and were then escorted to one room, where we all were together. There were two grills and two chefs. Our chef, Vincent, was very friendly, interacting with our group while preparing our food.
With a free online coupon, everyone was able to add six shrimp to any entree. I had the Hibachi steak, a very well-prepared steak, cut into chunks. It came with a small salad and a clear soup....very tasty. It also came with fried vegetables, steamed rice, and some delicious noodles. Hubby had the Ahi tuna, which was prepared perfectly. Everyone in our group was pleased with our meal, and the entertaining show presented by the chef.
With a lovely view of the surrounding area from the twelvth floor, the atmosphere is charming, and it is child-friendly, especially when the chef starts tossing shrimp into people's mouths. I highly recommend taking a trip to Westport for this restaurant!

This place at the top of the Westport tower. Great views around the town. Start off with a few drinks, enjoy the view ... nice hot sake. Just the best of everything and you don't pay over the odds for the privilege.

The kids love the place as do I. Steak and Lobster is always the best. The chefs make the whole thing a fun meal.

Staff bend over backwards to make you feel at home. This is a "Must Visit"

Awesome!

Brought the kids and they absolutely loved it. It does come with a lot of food,so we had some of the kids share a meal. Our chef was entertaining and the kids enjoyed his jokes. They all wanted to come back. If you have picky eaters, though, you may not get your money's worth - kids didn't really like the ginger soup and most wouldn't touch the shrimp that came with it (but hey - that just meant more for Dad).
You likely won't get a table by yourself unless you are a big party - we enjoyed getting to know our table mates, but not everyone likes to do that.

I had never been to Kobe before attending for a friend's birthday, so I did a little research online first to know what to expect. What a great time we had! The food seems a little pricey at first, but here you don't just get food; you get A LOT of food all while being entertained by your chef. I highly recommend this to anyone who has not experienced such a meal. I would like to come back.
