Been going to Kobe Steakhouse for 20 years in Rancho Mirage. Always good food, always as expected. Megan was our server the last time we visited and it was outstanding service as usual.

This steak and sushi restaurant is a meat lovers paradise. Meals are cooked to order with the typical Japanese chef flourish. Portions are generous, sides are excellent, and the wine and beer list are adequate. Saki is also available; Plenty of parking available.
