  • "We arrived to a pack restaurant, but because we had made our reservation through OpenTable. We were seated immediately. The food was delicious as always!!! Looking forward to my next visit tp Benihana and making my reservation through OpenTable."

  • "The service we received was less than what I'm accustomed to dining here. I've been a customer for over 15 years and this is the first time that I had to wait more than 30 minutes before I was acknowledged. I don't know if this will be a place I would frequent and at this point right now I would not recommend it to any of my associates."

  • "It's been a year since I've been to this location and the year hasn't been good to them. The floors were dirty the paint was chipped and the service was sub par! I wouldn't be surprised if this location wasn't here next year!!"

  • "This restaurant really needs to work on being better prepared for customers. After making a reservation for 8pm (for my friend’s birthday), we weren't seated until 9pm and we didn't eat until almost 945. Upon arrival the manager said he was understaffed. There were multiple groups with the same issue which is why I assumed all of the tables were overcrowded. Our server really tried her best, but our cook was very lackluster. The food was only okay. Overrall, I've been to a Benihana with better food and service, and I have been to better Japanese steakhouse in general. Don't waste your time."

  • "We went before prom and other than hearing a manger and waiter argue about what the job the waiter was supposed to be doing and the waiter's name (the manager was calling him by a different name), it was great"

  • "The service was terrible. The hosts were SO rude. Honestly, me and my friends had a horrible time. We got terrible attitude from the workers and waited way too long for our reservation. You need to work on your politeness."

  • "Had a reservation at 7pm. Did not get seated until 740. First drink came at 8:10 pm. Did not get food finished until 930. Similar experience happened a previous time and I decided to give it one more chance. Very disappointed. Food overall was good as was chef. Waiters are over worked so it takes a long time to get a request to them. Customer experience should be taken more seriously, especially when you spend over $75 on a meal for 2."

  • "Save time and just pick another Beninhana location to go to. Expect to be seated at your table and not Have the food cooked in front of you until 45+ mins. Have passed (not not wait for a table...but sitting at the actually table)! Just save your time and go to a location where they are better prepared and trained to handle guests."

  • "It was not what people make it out to be. I honestly didn't enjoy it. It's nothing like a simple hibachi place. Wasn't worth the price. Soup and salad wasn't even good."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "The chef Bernard was excellent. However the waitress wasn't. She struggled a little bit but service was overall good. The hostess were kind of rude but we had a great time and the good is always superb."

  • "This was ok for a first time visit. It was extremely noisy with a group of ppl. Ppl were standing on tables, banging on tables, screaming very loud. I thought it was more of a romantic setting, but it'll be ok with the right crowd."

  • "I frequently visit this location. The food is always good as well as the service. My most recent visit was this weekend March 15, 2014. I'm glad I followed my instincts and booked a reservation because they were packed. I was impressed because they're always busy, but I've never seen them have to turn customers away because they were completely booked until close. The quality of food and service were still exceptional. I'd recommend this location to anyone in need of a cute show and great food."

  • "7:00 Reservations for a Prom Party of 7. Seated at 7:45 and stated cooking at 8:30. Do not order the steak, not fit to eat and over cooked. Arrive at restaruant at 6:45 and left at 9:15 hungry and late for Prom. Thanks, will NEVER BE BACK!"

  • "There was an hour and 30 minute wait with the reservation. The hostess was not energetic. There were only four hibachis that were working. I was not allowed to place an order at the bar. I left after waiting over an hour and 45 minutes. I will never go back to that location. They didn't have enough servers to cook. I left before I was seated I couldn't wait any longer."

  • "Benihana's was such a BIG name in the community when I first moved here, but the level of class has gone waaaaayyyy down. The atmosphere was horrible. We had made reservations at Nakato for my son's birthday, but changed then when he received a giftcard to Benihana's. Since I had not been there in a while and he had never been, I thought we should take advantage of getting a break on the cost. I have always enjoyed this restaurant and I did not expect it to be any different on this night. We were a 5 minutes late for our reservation but we were still seated quickly. The atmosphere was the worst ever.....LOUD....place looks old and run down and feels unclean (not that it was). Last visit for us."

  • "There was a long wait--well over 30 minutes, despite the fact that we had a lunch reservation on that Saturday afternoon. The tables in the bar area were dirty--not having been wiped off after the previous guests. The staff generally seemed overworked. Our chef is the only one that really smiled or interacted with us enthusiastically. We asked if brown rice was available and 3 of the 4 of us ordered it. As it still hadn't come once we had been served and started eating our meal, when the waiter finally came back we reminded him about it. He returned 8 minutes later and told us the brown rice would take 10 or 15 more minutes to be ready. We agreed to white rice, but by this point we'd eaten 97% of the meal, so we didn't even want it"

  • "Benihana's is a unique place to enjoy yourself with others. The mood was just right for my husbands birthday. The atmosphere was a joy. Our chef was friendly and creative. Our waiter was on point with everything..I love my visit and will surely return again. Thanks Benihana for our wonderful experience."

  • "My party got to the restaurant, waited for about 45 minutes to be seated even with a reservation, then the person waiting on our table took forever to bring our salads. The waiter brought my soup after I'd started eating my main course. There were children running and playing which was a disturbance."

  • "We had a reservation for a party of 10 for 7:30 needless to say we didn't get seated until 9:00 pm. Ordered drinks 15 mins after we sat down and drinks didn't arrive at our table until 25 mins later. Food portion was not right. They had fries rice less two people and they had to go to the back and make it and bring it. We didn't leave the restaurant until 11:00pm. Wouldn't have been a problem but kids were starving by 9:00. Would not go there again."

  • "Had a family and friends celebration for a promotion. Food was great, the chef was fantastic, the waitstaff did an okay job. The issue was the wait time. Be prepared to have to wait even if you have a reservation on occasion."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Two people at our table stated to the waiter that it was their birthday but nothing was ever done for them... which wasn't a big deal but would have been nice... a small dish of ice cream or something. But compounded with a few other annoying things made the experience that much worse. My wife ordered the lunch boat, which had shrimp and vegetable tempura, which must have been sitting out for twenty minutes before it arrived at our table. The previously overcooked steak and tempura were cold and they forgot the edamame. When complained, they took it and brought it back obviously microwaved. Yum! Microwaved tempura and overcooked steak. They also spent time moving boxes about and restocking supplies such as take home bags.. during lunch."

  • "I will NEVER dine here again!!! 1. I made reservations for 5:00 pm and didn't get seated until 5:40!! Strike 1 2. Our waiter did his job poorly because we were waiting for another 15 mins for the chef to come to our table. I look around and guests who arrived after us were being serviced before us. Strike 2 3. The food portions were beyond small and to top it off our waiter forgot to bring our soup & salad!! He brought it out after our entrée AND didn't give us spoons for the soup! Strike 3 4. The manager tried to dodge our issue but in the end our meal was free. Too bad I couldn't get my time back. * On a good note the Haiku Colada is BOMB!!! (2 thumbs up)"

  • "I made reservations for the four us on a Saturday night at 6:00pm, but when we arrived at 6:00pm, we were told it would be a 30 minute wait. It was 35 minutes before we were seated and it was another 10 before the waiter came by to take our drink order. After 45 minutes, my daughter was starving! Once the waiter brought our drinks, he was very nice and the service was good for the rest of our meal. The cook was friendly and all of our food was cooked to order. There were several empty tables and so I'm not sure why we had to wait so long. Maybe they need to hire more wait staff. Even though the overall dinner was good, we probably won't be returning to this restaurant."

  • "The loved the food but the service was deplorable. They were short staffed the day we went and even with a reservation we had to wait 40 minutes to be seated. The waiter got our orders wrong twice and only smiled when he brought our bill. Not a good experience at all."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Our reservation for 6:30 could not be fulfilled until 7:15 pm - not a great setup with kids who were growing increasingly impatient and tired! Apparently, management is short-staffing their scheduling - we visited on a Saturday night, and could clearly see tables that were ready but with insufficient staff to seat everyone. Seems like a disastrous business strategy for busy Saturday nights - and I won't be back at this restaurant anytime soon because of it. That said, our server and hibachi chef apologized for the wait and did everything they could to ensure that we were served promptly and with great flair after we were seated. The hibachi "show" held my 8 and 6-yr old daughter's attention completely - Eric was great."

  • "Even though I made the reservation 3 days prior, and arrived 10 minutes befor e my reservation time, I had to wait 40 minutes to be seated. It was my first time there so I expected more from Benihana. My cook never spoke or brought any excitement. It was too loud and was as clean as most Japanese steak houses."

  • "Went there for Valentine's Day. Food was excellent. Service was great. However, we had to wait for so long to get a table, although we made a reservation. I guess that's because it was an unusual day. IDK..."

  • "I loved the food, the portions were adequeate and flavorful. However, i think we went on kiddie night, as there were kids EVERYWHERE! Our host seated us at a table with 3 other couples, however we were sat spmck dab in the middle of RomperRoom1 i get it, they have toseat people according to time and availability.. no quams there... but woww, you sit us at the date night table in the middle of the playground. If they could work with that aspect, I would love to recommend this spot. I do think a remodeling needs to be in order as soon as possible. I may try another Bennihans but this one... not so much."

  • "We dined as a group for my twins 7th Birthday so Tepanyaki style dining was the best option. Although we arrived 15 minutes late for our reservation, they worked us in with less than an hour wait. The standard wait was 2.5 to 3 hours as the restaurant was extremely crowded. This was a Saturday night in the Buckhead area, crowds were expected. The food/service was good. The chef didn't put on as great of a show as I was seeing at surrounding tables which was a slight disappointment as I wanted my twins to get the most out of this evening but this isn't a complaint just an observation. I would certainly return and recommenced to others dining with large groups. Just make sure you arrive prior to your reservation so there isn't a wait."

I drank 2 cocktails To fill me up because I was so hungry. The food wasn't even That great. And they forgot to bring me exra foods that were To come with my dish. I will NEVER come back!

We sat at the table for 30 mins. before anyone took our drink and food orders, so never go on a special day like this because you will be disappointed."

  • "I've been to Japanese steakhouses before but never to Benihana. The food and service was as expected, good and enjoyable but not spectacular. These restaurants you mostly go for the experience anyway. I really enjoyed our chef, Mario. He was lively and had a permanent smile on his face. The only small complaint I would have is with the Valet service. They were very busy which I understood but after we handed our ticket it was obvious they forgot about us because everyone that came after us continually got their cars. We probably waited for about 15-20 minutes before I finally had to remind them and they frantically searched for my car."

  • "Benihana Buckhead is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta, however, I had a reservation for 3:00 and was finally seated at 3:45. The hostess informed me that they were short on servers which was the cause of the delay. Next time I will verify that they are fully staffed, if not I will drive a little further to the Alpharetta location. Overall, the food was delicious and it definitely made up for the delay"
