Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant does a great job at managing groups. We had 7 in our party and everything was pretty much seamless. The food and service was great. We will definitely return for future group lunches and celebrations."

  • "I was not thrilled about this visit at all. Our server was excellent but our chef was poor. He totally messed up the food and the family next to us got our food."

  • "This restaurant did the best they could, I guess. I had a large party of 10 people and the restaurant fumbles around trying to seat up together even though we had reservations."

  • "I am a frequent Benihana visitor. This was my first time at this location for lunch and it was not the Benihana that I'm used to. The orders were all messed up. My sushi was incorrect. Although they made me another sushi, I was still disgusted. The rice was tasteless due to special requests at the table. For example, some people didn't want egg in the rice or veggies! So the rice was totally off. If someone has a food allergy or special requests, they should make that food in the back and cook the food according to the correct recipe for the table. Totally through the chef off track. I will NOT be returning to this location! Sorry"

  • "I have never been to Benihana before and my husband decided it was time to try out a new restaurant. We had reservations set for 8 and while we waited, we sat at the bar and had some amazing sushi and good drinks. While our reservation was not honored right at 8 pm, the staff was very friendly and accommodated us well. We ordered the food with ease and our chef was entertaining but not so much so that he took over conversations at the table. The food was good and fresh and I will definitely go back soon!"

  • "We went on Valentine's Day 2014. Atmosphere, food & entertainment compared to other hibachi grill restaurants just wasn't there. We ordered the Benihana Trio dinner each which consisted of the prawns, filet, and chicken - it was all shared with other dinners at our grill at our expense. Not a big deal but my husband didn't get that much food as half of his was shared with the man & woman beside us that had only ordered grilled chicken...He was not and still is not happy about that situation! Had to wait even with reservations. Would not recommend going during busy times or holidays! "

  • "I am normally a fan of Benihana however this was the worst experience I have had. First the waiter spilled everything. When the chef arrived he was completely unprepared and had forgotten one of the couples meal. He left and placed more items on his cart. He returned and begin to cook the food. After preparing the rice he realized he was short left the food on the grill and returned 5 minutes later with more chicken. A few people at the table had to stop him several times for putting items on their plate they didn't request. I had to stop him because I ordered no mushrooms and he was adding them to my meal. I also order chicken and he placed steak on my plate ( I don't eat beef) I was so disappointed. "

  • "Was not impressed with the taste of a well known franchise like this one, have had better at smaller chains in smaller cities."

  • "Always seems rushed only to wait on others to show up and fill a table before you can start to enjoy the food prep and eating.but overall its 1 of our favorite places for dining out."

  • "The food was good and the lunch specials were really reasonable. The service was a bit slow but in all I would definitely go back."

  • "We celebrated my daughter birthday there. Our waiter was dull and slow.. We didn't receive our soup nor did we receive napkins the entire visit. Our chef Marco was OK at best...he was nice but not energetic ....he did make my daughter a heart with the rice...our chicken was over cooked...I just threw mines away since no one wanted it at our table including myself..our vegetables were burnt...no throwing shrimp in someone's mouth...our waiter said that my daughter would receive ice cream and that the other waiters would sing happy birthday to her...our waiter came back with half a scoop of ice cream and he was the only one singing the happy birthday song to my daughter...our waiter said the other waiters were busy"

  • "I took some clients to lunch and our cook was not friendly and didnt want to answer questions. We ordered appetizers that came at the end of our meal"

  • "There was nothing particularly special about our visit here on New Year's Eve. The food was as expected. The fried rice costs extra here which was weird. The drinks were good though! It was not crowded at all for NYE which was great for service, but I'm glad we had a reservation just in case."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Expensive, but very good. I highly recommend going for lunch when the prices are more comparable to other Japanese steakhouses (since the taste is really no different). If you do choose to go for dinner, make sure your going with a $30 off birthday coupon. :)"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "This was my first visit to a Benihana. It will not be my last because of the good quality and quantity of food and the unique opportunity to dine with complete strangers from all walks of life. The showmanship of the table chef was skillful and entertaining, save for a couple of moments of embarrassing gimmickry; notably the shining of colored laser pens on the food that he was preparing! Great touch for bringing my kids - not so much for bringing my business partners."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Initially the visit was going well until one of the servers opened the back door, which we were seated directly in front of. When asked if she could please close the door because there was a draft and it was getting quite cold she replied in passing, "NO! The smoke might get to the other patrons at another table", and she walked off. I am sorry but, is that not why you all have the giant overhead ventilations systems at EVERY table? The waitress’s attitude was horrible, the excuse for freezing us was horrible, and this in turn made the experience not a very pleasant one. I will be back but i will request to never be seated anywhere near that side of the restaurant again if that is the treatment that i will receive."

  • "I tried this Benihana about a year ago and was very disappointed. The food wasn't very good and the service was terrible. I finally decided to give it another try last week, and I'm done. Never again. The service was so bad - one of the girls in our group did not even get any food until everyone else at the table was done and the hibachi chef had already turned off and cleaned the grill (she had ordered steamed rice and edemame)!? At one point after the hibachi chef started cooking, everyone at the table had empty glasses and we had not seen our waitress in a looong time. The chef actually stopped cooking so he could go find us a waitress. By far the worst service I have ever had....anywhere."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Heard bad things about service but we had nine if the issues of the reviews we read! Drove 3 hours for a weekend in Atlanta and this was one of our must hits and want disappointed! Best food ever and I'm a new fan!"

  • "This was my husband and I first time visiting this particular location. The directions were not accurate. I had made reservations for 8:00pm. I called the restaurant twice and was rudely given directions as well as rushed off the phone. When my party of 10 finally did find the location we were told that we had to wait another hour because we were late. The waitress barely came to see if we needed anything and added tips equaling up to 50$ on the credit cards . She also mixed the tickets up and charged the wrong food orders on the wrong cards"

  • "The food was awesome as always we were a little late getting there being I'm not from Atlanta ga the manager on duty was rude when I arrived and ask for my table but the waitress on duty chose to still accommodate us wish I knew her name"

  • "The reservation was 15 mins behind,the server had no knowledge of what he was saying, he did no suggestive selling.When a minor is present they normally do not carry identification you guys should honor coupons when they are with parents! The chef was not friendly at all he failed to do any entertainment it was boring at the table at first, and he was slow, and made mistakes; the chicken was dry and over cooked. Overall i have been there before if i visit again i would recommend Javier. Excellent Chef!!!!"
