I was here with a friend earlier this year, and the experience was one to remember. He had been before but I hadn't; I wasn't prepared for such a show! The food was incredible and more than enough for everyone. Everything was so fresh, I...More

Groupon's offer of $33 for a 5 course Japanese tapas dinner in the Izakaya Lounge (main floor) enticed us back to Kobe's. The repast was very comforting, the only issue is that there could have been more..........but what do you expect for $33?

Been here a couple times, and it never disappoints... If you're hungry, order the Ultimate. Comes with everything (but it's expensive). Great for families with kids. Super entertaining.

I think 9-12. I am sure they could seat more but you should check with them by phone. They are very helpful.
