KOBE Website FAQ
What are reservations?
Reservations are recommended, however, seating is also available for walk-ins. Due to our unique seating arrangement, please expect a short wait time with your reservation upon checking in with a complete party.
Can I have a private table?
Yes, request this with a representative or online. There is a $300 spending minimum for each table reserved. Each table seats up to 10 guests. Other fees apply for private rooms. Please contact your preferred Kobe location for more information on private dining rooms.
I understand that you don’t seat the party until the entire party is present. What if we want to sit before some of our guests arrive?
Due to our unique seating arrangements, we do not seat parties until the party is complete. We understand that under certain circumstances, one or two guests must come later. We can seat the party if someone could put in the order for the late guests. If it is a surprise party, let your hostess know and he/she will make arrangements.
Can I request a Chef/Server?
Yes, you can make your request with a representative or on your online reservation arrangement. However, we cannot guarantee that the requested staff member will be available. We will try our best to fulfill your request. When you check in, your hostess will let you know on the status.
What if I have an allergy?
Let your server and chef know of your allergy. They can both make accommodations at the table and cook your food separately or we can prepare your entree in our back kitchen for maximum precaution. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee the absolute elimination of the allergen.
Do you offer gluten free?
We offer a Gluten-Friendly Chicken Fried Rice. All ingredients in our gluten-friendly option are gluten-free, but we cannot guarantee 100% elimination of gluten since we cook with many ingredients containing gluten on our teppanyaki grills and in our kitchen.
Do you offer banquet services for special occasions?
Yes we do! Please contact your preferred Kobe location to inquire.
Do you have a Children’s Menu?
Yes. We offer teppanyaki children’s menu that offers the full teppanyaki meal in smaller portions. Choose from sirloin, chicken, tofu, vegetable delight or shrimp.
Do you have a corkage fee?
Feel free to bring in your own bottle of wine that is not on our wine menu for a corkage fee of $10 per bottle.
Can we bring our own cake?
Yes! Let your hostess know and we can store your cake in the appropriate area. Let us know if it’s an ice cream cake! If you would like for your server to serve the cake, there is a $5 plating fee. However if you would like to serve it yourself, there is no charge.
