Benihana - Maple Grove
The food was awesome! OurThe food was awesome! Our chef Sam was VERY good. Our servers were very attentive! Overall a wonderful experience!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a disappointmentI took my mom/family out for Mother's Day Dinner and they loved it. Our Chef was very funny and enthusiastic..very talented although he said that it was his "first" day (haha). I usually do hibachi on special occasions like Mother's Day or Anniversaries but sometimes I'll just go to the sushi bar for two. And still, that's never a disappointment. Benihana's is always satisfying. Great service and great atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat timeWent to Benihana for our anniversary, had a great time. The food was absolutely delicious, more than enough food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!We always look forward to our dinner here.

All in all a great place!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, Good ServiceFood tasted great althought he shrimp was slightly overdone and my wifes steak was a bit more medium well than medium.
The chef performs tricks at the table and he was a little too reserved and didnt engage with us much
This is really just the luck of the chef you get though, around us I saw plenty of very dynamic chefs and plenty of laughter.
It was my 5 year olds first time and we had hoped for a more memorable experience but she still enjoyed it and asked if we could return for her birthday.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceService was outstanding and very friendly staff. Everything was great, please keep it up :)5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday night outWe have gone to this restaurant many times. It is a lot of fun and if you have not gone before, you need to go for dinner after that i would go for lunch. It is cheaper and it is almost the same food. We signed up for their email club and we get 30.00 for dinner. This used to be alpt but i feel like they have raised thier prices and this will get you a dinner(barely).
Oberall this is a fun place that is great for a special occasion but I would not go here otherwise.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the food preparationEnjoyed the food preparation and cooking .

Our waitress need a lil work , she was not that good.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceWe were there celebrating 3 birthdays and it was an amazing time. One of our group had never been to Benihana so the entire visit was great to see through her eyes. Our server, Jake, was excellent! Whatever question we had, he answered, he assisted us with our birthday certificates, he went above and beyond the call of duty. The three of us had never had such excellent service. Thank you Jake for a wonderful time and for making us feel very special!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMChef needed personality!Although we enjoyed our dining experience, we felt that our chef, Carlos, was difficult to communicate with, and a little less than enthusiastic. He focused on only one member of the group, and didn't seem interested in the rest. We have been to several restaurants like Benihana, and he was the least skilled. We did, however, enjoy the food, and would go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a wonderful time atwe had a wonderful time at Benihana! excellent food and a lot of fun4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was excellent.Our server was excellent. Very personable and attentive. Made good suggestions when asked. Our chef seemed a little inexperienced and was hard to understand. Didn't interact very well. The food however was very good. Overall a nice and fun dinig experience. We will return. Probably with friends.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had reservations at 7:30We had reservations at 7:30 on a Thursday night & it was quite busy. It took about 15 minutes later to be sat which was the only downfall. Other than that, the waiter was attentive, the chef was fun & seemed to enjoy his
Job, & the manager checked on our table to see how everything was. We were celebrating my birthday and my son's; everyone made us feel special. The food was awesome, service was great, it remains one of our favorite restaurants. We will definitely keep coming back.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe teriyaki steak and friedThe teriyaki steak and fried rice was awesome! I had to get an extra order of fried rice to go...4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday MealSuper job, very accommodating with April Snowstorm and our traffic delays. Glad we had a reservation. Super Birthday Deal with $30 off our bill!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy experience at BenihanaMy experience at Benihana with my lunch reservation was lovely no long wait time to be seated, staff was friendly. I will always put Benihana at the Top of my dining out list. Giving out Birthday coupon is a wonderful thing and I appreciate the gift each and every year. Wish you had a wedding anniversary coupon. I Love Benihana!!!!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty and entertaining!As always Benihana is a wonderful place to eat. Because they cook I front of you and the cooks are so talented its almost like dinner and a show! The chefs have many jokes and tricks up thier sleeves that make sure every meal is not only tasty but fun.
I highly recommend taking a group with. The cooking tables seat eight each and seeing first timers faces is so fun. The prices for lunch run about $15 so making this a monthly eating out experiance is possible. I tend to save this place for twice a year just so that I can appreciate the skill of the cooks every time!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time at Benihana.We had a great time at Benihana. This was a perfect place to celebrate my son's birthday.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Customer ServiceOur chef was starting to prepare the fried rice and shrimp appetizers when he realized the cooking surface (would you call it a grill??) was not hot enough. He called a manager over and they promptly moved us to another table, carrying all of our drinks and other items for us and included a round of drinks on the house. Everyone kept apologizing profusely, but really they did the right thing. They moved us, gave us a free drink, and we went on with our dinner. Thank you for great customer service and lovely meal as well!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI celebrated with my girlfriendsI celebrated with my girlfriends on my birthday! What a great night! Food was amazing and our Chef...Roberto was entertaining and very talented!!!!! Thanks!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my relitives firstThis was my relitives first time. They thought it was amazing.

Looking forward to going again.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite place!! :)I loved it here! I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and it as my first time there. The chef wa beyond amazing! I think his name was Maurice. He was friendly andvery funny. I loved the fact that he interacted with EVERYONE. There was a toddler at our tabl and he even madea choochoo train out of our food for him. I loved that he was nice and his jokes were ver appropriate. I would recommend this place to anyone. The servers were very nice as well. They checked on us contantly. That is a major fator fr having a great restaurant! I've been to other places in which the sever comes only once. Everyone there was friendly. The bartender, I think his name was RD was also sweet. Great place and AMAZING food.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a birthday in our partyWe had a birthday in our party of 8. We got there about 10 minutes prior to our reservation and our table was ready right on time. Dining here is as much show as it is great fresh food and quality cuts of meat. It's a festive atmosphere although hard to have a conversation with the person across from you as the grill is the "table", but with all the chef antics going on, you don't really talk. And once you get your hands on the shrimp sauce your mouth is full anyway, stuffing yourself with food cooked in butter. What's to discuss? This place is awesome fun, a special treat kind of place for us and not cheap. But very, very fun, relaxed upscale dining.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff really went outThe staff really went out of their way to make certain everything was perfect. They were very friendly and attentive. The chef did a great job with his "Benihana tricks".

Our food was great and the show that Raymond gave us was perfect. The birthday song didn't include the drums like everyone else got, but it was still a wonderful dinner.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely worth eating at!The service was outstanding. Fun atmosphere. Enjoyed the experience. Food was very good but must confess, we expected the lemon chicken to be a bit stronger in flavor but it was still very good. The waiters went out of their way to please, please, please. Might try the Teriyaki next time. Prices are reasonable. The fried rice was fabulous. Gave 4 stars due to lemon chicken disappointment/expectations.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable time. Food,Very enjoyable time.

The soup and salad were delicious. Love the fried onions and zucchini. My friend and went to
celebrate our birthdays and had a great time! I had steak and my friend had seafood diablo. Nice experience.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can always depend on BenihanaYou can always depend on Benihana for an entertaining presentation, good service and good food.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, not enough seating.The dining experience that my friend and I had was excellent. There are several unique sushi rolls exclusive to Benihana and are very good. My friend enjoys everything but sushi, and there are plenty of exquisite mouthwatering choices for those who are not sushi enthusiasts. If you prefer anything other than Teppanyaki, the only option you have for seating is 'the lounge', which is a small circular area in the middle of the restaurant, including a sushi bar, three tall tables with bar stools, and a cresent 'booth' with four or five small tables between the booth and another chair. Be prepared to wait for a while if you want sushi, tempura, udon dishes, ribs, etc. The only reservations they take are for Teppanyaki, which is a bummer.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chef put on a great show.The chef put on a great show. This was the third time at this location and it is always good.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHad reservations, were seatedHad reservations, were seated shortly after our entire party arrived. Very busy place, but seating is such that other tables are not a distraction. Service was most excellent from beginning to end, as was the food. The Las Vegas rolls/Tuna rolls were fabulous, several shared "Dinner for Two" - filet/chicken, and it was delicious. Were celebrating birthdays - it was a great way to do it & would highly recommend this dining experience!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. A little noisyGreat food.
