  • "My first time here and my second for hibachi and me and my girlfriend brought out kids which was a first for them. After reading the other reviews we were excited for some family fun (especially since the bill was 125 bucks) Nope.... He did the volcano and had no personality. I was so disappointed and felt cheated. It's ashame because the food was really good. Oh well, I'm not going there again and I causion anyone looking for some entertainment. Don't go here."

  • "It is great that Benihana has opportunity for people of all ethnic backgrounds and they do not discriminate. It would be really nice though to see and hear Japanese employees as well. The atmosphere is of the Japanese culture and would be nice to be able to communicate with an actual Japanese person. It's a nice time out for a special occasion because a bit pricey and was not happy with paying full price for sushi during happy hour because we were sitting at table instead of sushi bar. I have eaten at other Japanese style restaurants n this was not the case."

  • "Good was pretty good but service was just okay. Took 20 minutes to get our check. Seating was sparse and there weren't many people in the restaurant."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "THE AMBIENCE WAS OUTSTANDING, THIS WAS MY SECOND TIME TO A JAPANESE HIBACHI GRILL, THE FIRST TIME WAS UP IN THE POCONO'S AND WE REALLY GOT A GOOD SHOW. BUT I WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED WITH BENIHANA IN CHERRY HILL NJ. THE SHOW WAS A LITTLE BORING, THE CHEF WAS A QUIET TALKER AND I COULD HARDLY HEAR HIM TALKING. I DIDN'T FEEL THE WHOLE HIBACHI GRILL EXPERIENCE BECAUSE OUR CHEF WAS NOT JAPANESE, HE WAS MEXICAN. NOTHING AGAINST HIS COOKING SKILLS BECAUSE THE FOOD THAT HE COOKED WAS GREAT TASTING. UP IN THE POCONO'S THE CHEF WAS JAPANESE AND HE WAS FLIPPING SHRIMP INTO EVERYBODY AT THE GRILLS MOUTHS AND GOING AROUND AND SQUIRTING SAKE INTO OUR MOUTHS, IT WAS JUST MORE FUN IN THE POCONOS. "

  • "I have been here two times in the past several months and I have had a good time, each time. The cook was entertaining, and food cooked perfectly. You do occasionally get a chef who is not as entertaining but is a good place to go and I will return. "

  • "Hi Not sure why I made a reservation for 6 pm when I got there they told me we still had 30- 45 minute wait. We didn't start eating until 7:40 and the food was quite pricey as well. Spent close to $200.00 dollars and we only had water to drink for 6 people. "

It was the best experience and it was so much fun. The chef, Ernesto, was the best ! He kept the our table so entertained and made sure we were satisfied with the food! He kept the table happy and a lively feeling atmosphere! I would definitely request Chef Ernesto for my next visit! The service is great, the staff is great, the food is great and I love everything about this place ! "

  • "Chef did nothing special. Did not entertain us at all. Didn't get the whole experience of the flames. He also mixed up our orders gave my friend regular steak when it should have been filet mignon. Came here for something different. Was not impressed! My daughter has only been to this type of restaurant once and at 11 she even said it wasn't as good as when she went before. I advise them to train their staff before they make us pay for full service when we got half a-- service. Servers were great! Cook sucked!"

  • "I'm a teacher and this is the 2nd time taking scholars to Benihana as a reward that they won at schoool. It was something that we were all looking forward to and this time did not disappoint! It's such a fun experience to watch a chef cook the delicious food in front of you with a special flair and personality. The scholars and I alike had our phones out taking pictures. We had a. Wonderful time! This is a great treat for anyone of any age, but I have found it's an experience that can't be duplicated or topped!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food was great but I wasn't very pleased that the chef had given my some of my food to the other party at the table. Also I had ordered a for two and had stated I was going to be sharing some with my date eventually, but the chef still gave him over half of my food not even bother to ask how much I wanted to give him or if I was sharing now or if I had only wanted to share the chicken or the steak or anything whatsoever. But besides that the food was amazing."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I love hibachi style meals. I have been to Benihana a few times and find it mediocre in comparison to some others I have tried. This last visit sealed the deal on going there again. the chef was "going through the motions" not interactive with my kids or any of the other people at our table. The food was over cooked. The preparation station was nearest to my seat and i had concerns about the different types of meats minghling on a plate that looked like it was out on a counter too long. It was my son's birthday so I kept if to myself for the sake of him but I was not happy with our meals and quite surprised when the bill came. Wow did the prices go up? $150 before tip for a family of four? No alcohol was ordered. sad"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "I think our chef was a little inexperienced. I was disappointed with his performance as compared to chefs at other stations. I was also disappointed in my HAIKU COLADA. I think they forgot to add rum/alcohol to the drink. For the price, I expected to be able to TASTE alcohol had been added. It was my husbands birthday celebration and I was truly disappointed with the experience. I heard about the chefs were very entertaining and this chef was far from it. The food was OK....but nothing stood out to make me want to return again."

  • "I took my daughter here for her 17th birthday and she loved it. We went as a family of 8 and we were comfortable and had fun. The food taste great but the only thing is that the portions seemed a bit small for the price."

  • "Our family has been going to this location now for over 30 years and have never had a bad meal. Service is always top notch Food is always excellent and plenty of it"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "My overall experience was good; however, the chef was not very involved and the waitress had to correct the order. Food is a little over priced for quality of food. Need to put additional space in between tables because my husband couldn't even get up to use the bathroom without the other table getting up and interrupting their dinner."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Great place for dinner with a show. Our chef and waitress were charismatic, vibrant and comical. They put on a very enjoyable performance and made the entire evening worth every penny. Congratulations to them and to all of us at the table for a worthwhile experience."

  • "We took a large party for a birthday celebration. We had a reservation but waited at least 45 minutes to be seated. Once seated we waited very long for drinks and even longer for a chef. Chef was unenthusiastic, not like those we had on previous occasions. From start to finish dinner took 3.5 hours. On the bright side, food was good. I have been to this restaurant many times, but I feel it is losing its appeal and I would not recommend it to others."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Good overall, but the chef's need to interact with patrons a little more."

  • "We came here for my sister's Sweet 16. We have been to numerous Benihana's in different states and we're very excited knowing this would be great...it wasn't. The chef sure tried but he must have been knew because he seemed insecure and did little to know "tricks." We sat with the worst two customers which was no fault to Benihana except how they handled them. As he was cooking, they decided they wanted shrimp too. He gave them my sister's, the birthday girl's, and she was stuck waiting an extra 15 minutes for more shrimp to be brought out. We received only zucchini and onions which was not the vegetables we were used to at other locations and everything came out 10-15 minutes apart from each other leaving our food cold. We won't be back."
