Attended a family Bday dinner here. It was a nice evening. Friendly service, good food. The gardens outside Kobe are beautiful, same with the bar/lounge area.

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.
