For more than 35 years, Kobe Steak House's skilled master chefs have fired seafood, meat, and vegetarian fare on tableside griddles—or teppans—right in front of captivated patrons. Pulling from a pantry stocked with tender aged beef, Nova Scotia scallops, cold water lobsters, and garden-fresh vegetables, these teppanyaki artists dazzlingly toss their ingredients and cookery tools into the air as they sear dishes such as teriyaki chicken or Emperor steak. Diners can also dig their chopsticks into sushi selections, including fresh cuts of daily-caught Hawaiian maguro sashimi.
When they're not watching the chefs helm a thrilling knife show, guests can cast their gaze upon the antique décor of a 300-year-old fisherman kimono, emperor dolls, fine porcelain hibachis, and steak-sauce bottles from the Edo period.
Headed by the much-lauded Chef Philippe Padovani, an originator of the Hawaiian regional cuisine movement, Padovani Grill features sautéed steaks and seafood worthy of mentions in the New York Times and Honolulu magazine. With its leather chairs and recessed ceiling lighting, the posh dining room seats diners in unintimidating luxury, ideal for savoring the decadent menu that's packed with French-style grill fare adapted with signature Hawaiian fruits and flavors. Forks dig into a pan-sautéed weke ($38) sizzled with snow peas and bacon and topped with a rich cilantro-curry sauce. Like the finest meat in the land and Popsicles, the moi fillet ($35) was historically served to royalty, but now the white fish democratically fills any belly with sautéed meat and a summery sauce of sun-dried tomatoes. Gourmet Black Angus steaks and milk-fed veal come enlivened with freshly prepared sauces, such as the green-peppercorn-and-sweet-corn sauce. Local ingredients star in appetizers such as the hearty manila clam chowder ($12), simmering with kahuku sweet corn and Hawaiian seaweed. A decadent dessert menu reveals the chef's gourmet-chocolatier experience.
