    We felt very rushed during dinner. My sister in law did not even finish her soup because they took it away from without asking. (They did bring her more) my nephew ordered chicken and they forgot to cook his portion and everyone else got the chicken they ordered. They cooked him more but everyone was already eating. And while we were still eating dinner, they handed us to go containers and we weren’t sure if we were going to have leftovers. I’ve been there multiple times, but not sure I will be back in the future

    Kobe’s made my parents anniversary memorable. The cook was really interactive and they even got a dessert plate saying Happy Anniversary for my parents. They sang a song and made them laugh.
