From the time we enter the restaurant until the very end.
Well done.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but....I love going here to eat but our server was not on his game that night. We ordered shrimp and he did not add them to our order as well as an extra fried rice bowl. The other group at our table was also missing two items and they had a hard time selecting a proper wine because the server was not that knowledgable.
The food was delicious like it always is and our chef was funny and on a great show.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWouldn't celebrate anywhere else!!!We have been eating at Benihana since the ealy '70's. We ate at the original one on Taylor Street in San Francisco, until it moved to Post Street in The City. We still ate there until it was more convenient to eat at the Burlingame location when that was built. Each restaurant made you feel like a very special guest and the food has always been the very best of quality.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationThis is the restaurant my four kids always pick for their birhtday dinners....me too.
The food is always super yummy, the younger kids are completely entertained, and remain in their seats. The chefs are interactive.
We love the celebration photo they give you as well. It's a little pricey.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Celebration Fun!Benihana always delivers an exciting dining experience!

She was quite amazed and entertained with the Chef.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSIMPLY THE BESTFor many years this restuarant has served as a standard for me. Especially, for out of town guests. The atmosphere is lively and welcoming. The greeters, waiters, and waitresses have always been friendly. The chefs as well, were entertaining and of course, good cooks. My guests from out of the country were impressed. Keep up the good work BENIHANA. I will be back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihanas did a great jobBenihanas did a great job serving a group of 9 people.

The staff, service, and overall manner of everybody there was great. The food was delicious and very well portioned, the chef was masterful at his art and kept everybody entertained. The wait was around 15-20 minutes after our reservation time, but for a restaurant of this magnitude that should be expected. I would recommend Benihana to anybody looking for a great night out.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHave not been there in years.Have not been there in years.

He did a very job.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot and always a funGreat spot and always a fun time for everyone. The chicken fried rice is always tummy! The seafood and steak are always cooked to perfection. Our chef had a great personality and the kids were entertained.The only suggestion I would have is to try and do something about the small gnats on the window. We were fortunate to have a great view and realize that the location is right by the water. However seeing all of these little gnats flying around the window while we were eating was unappetizing. Otherwise the service and experience was nice.
And I haven't been there for lunch in a while but they now do not offer both the soup and salad but only one or the other for lunch.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgood show,great chef,goodgood show,great chef,good food,great service wil be back4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihanaAs always Benihanas is a great place to dine.

We ordered Teppanyaki dinner entrees and it was great! Although with the gift food discount and all, we still have to pay $70 out of pocket so it's quite pricey! Hopefully, they'll come out with more reasonable priced entrees.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving a reservation doesn'tHaving a reservation doesn't really matter at this location. they still make you wait.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was greatAs always the food was great and so fun to watch the chef cook it right in front of you.

The service was superb just as we had expected. On this visit, we were celebrating my birthday and my two sons were with me. We ordered two of Rocky's Choice, which was a steak and chicken combo and a Spicy Hibachi Chicken. We've ordered these items before and was really impressed in the past so we ordered them again on this visit.
Although the food was very tasty, as had been in the past, the portion size seemed noticeably smaller this time. We had also ordered an extra side order of the chicken fried rice. We were quite disappointed when we noticed that our fried rice bowls was somewhat less full than the other diners at our table.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana is one of our absoluteBenihana is one of our absolute favorite places to go. The kids love it and eat well. Portions are so big you have to take home more than 1/2 of it.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMarch 17, 2013We were at the Burlingame, CA location.
