The only variable is your chef and the people joining you at your table. Our chef, Jorge, did a great job of cooking and entertaining us!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe filet mignon steak wasThe filet mignon steak was amazing. Def recommend over the hibachi steak. Scallops and shrimp also fantastic. The entertainment is a little cheesy if you've been there before, but we haven't been there in a while, so it was fun :o)4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it and can't wait to return!My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here. My husband had never had Hibachi and always wanted to experience it so I surprised him with a dinner at Benihana. We arrived promptly at 6pm for our reservation and were seated immediately. What a wonderful experience that ensued. The ambiance was fun and lively. Our Hibachi chef, Selvin, was terrific! Very entertaining and the food was delicious. The servers were very attentive and very friendly. Our evening finished with a complimentary dessert with a candle while the staff sang an anniversary song to us. Such a great experience and we had such a great time. We're going back with the kids next month as this is something we want to share with them too. Highly recommend!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait was way too longWe made our reservation on-line the day before. Didn't get seated until an hour after the reservation time. There were a few other annoyed customers that had to wait an hour also. Other than that it was OK. I don't think I will go back though. It seemed like the restaurant was trying to accommodate too many customers at once. I got the impression that they were double booking the reservations.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for familiesThis is a favorite of our children.

The server was quick with appetizers and with keeping our drinks filled. The chef was interactive with the kids in our group and showed alot of energy with the kids. He had a great sense of humor and throughly explained the sauces and the foods that they would go best with. I can't wait for the next opportunity to return to Benihana's.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur friends and we enjoyedOur friends and we enjoyed our dinning experience.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lot of fun! FoodWe had a lot of fun! Food was good. Worth the money!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI have always loved goingI have always loved going to Benihanas, I have been to multiple locations. However, this location I will not return to again. I made a reservation but was not seated until 50 mins AFTER the reservation time even though I was there on time. The chef was less than friendly and the whole staff seemed discombobulated and relatively unfriendly. The food wasn't as good as it is at the other locations I have been to, although the chicken was fabulous (I had teriyaki chicken), but the fried rice was not seasoned as well as usual. Overall, I would not recommend this location to anyone. Even the other party at our table was commenting about how the other Benihanas they had been to were better.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIt had been awhile sine IIt had been awhile sine I visited a Benihana's restaurant. I was not disappointed. It was just as great this time as it was the last time I was there.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertaining and EducationalThere is a certain comfort in watching your food be prepared in front of you, knowing that it is being done right.
To watch the chef is not only entertaining, it is also educational in how the food is prepared.
Veggies over here, meat in this area. How everything is organized in the cooking and kept clean between courses.
I'm always amazed at how easy fried rice and seafood can be cooked -- when you know how!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional Food!This was our first time going to dinner at Benihana's. It was wonderful food but I didn't leave full. I should have ordered more food or a combo plate. We would go back. The presentation on the grill was refreshing and the cook smiled the whole time. He looked like he was having a good time.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
