dynamicWonderful just wonderful is all that needs to be said6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFather's Day OutingThank you for the enjoyable dinner. We had a great time with the kids - food was great and staff wonderful!!!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMwe love itWe go about 5 times a year for Birthday's and special occasions, we absolutely love it. we have even purchased a "Be the Chef" certificate for my Dad and he just loved that and wants to build a grill at home. we enjoy ourselves each and every time and the staff is AWESOME each and every one...
GREAT PLACE FOR ALL6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChef was boring...I've been going to this location for 5 years now. 5 years ago, the chefs were energetic and happy and did many tricks with just about everything they cooked on the grill. The excitement has dwindled drastically and it's gotten quite boring. He did 4 tricks the whole time...shrimp tails in his hat, onion train that was weak at best, an egg yolk trick that failed on all 3 tries, and he did absolutely nothing with the rice aside from shaping it into a heart. I was extremely disappointed. The food is amazing, but it would have been just as enjoyable if they served it to our private table. Your chefs should get some training from the Ichiban trainers. They put on a show and cook great food at the same time.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time!We were seated right away and the whole experience was great and the food was very yummy!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMybcinnibly good food, servedybcinnibly good food, served in a most entertaining manner!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favBenihana is by far one of my favorite restaurants.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerWe had a great dining experience! It was my daughter's birthday and the chef made a point of interacting with her and including her in his routine. It made for a special evening.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and entertainment!Benihana is my favorite place to eat! The dinner is a bit on the pricey side, but lunch is more affordable if you're on a budget. The food is always amazing and have never been disappointed anything on the menu. Carlos was our chef at the MN Golden Valley location, and he was fantastic! He was very entertaining and interactive with our group. I've been to Benihana a handful of times and he was by far the best chef I've had (entertainment wise). My family very much enjoyed our experience! Carlos should get a raise! He's fabulous! :)6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI was planning on coming thereI was planning on coming there again and have asked a few times where my birthday coupon is ? I've been there 2 times in the last week and asked for it last year and again this year and you told me the mail them monday for Junes ??? We spend a lot there and I expect my coupon this year since I've never had it and when I try to sign up you say I have ???6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMQuick, the world needs you!Benihana was one of the more memerable birthday dinners I've had in quite some time. I was there with my wife and our two children (ages 2 and 6), my parents and my brother and his girlfriend. Our chef "Kenny" was an increadible showman catering to both the adults and the kids. The food was remarkable. Steaks were cooked to order, chicken perfectly grilled and shrimp that was the flashiest cooked shrimp I have ever seen. The fried rice was made up right in front of us and tasted better than any I have ever eaten. It is on the higher side for cost, but with the show that comes with the wonderful food, I would say it's worth every dollar.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my first time hereIt was my first time here and i'd have to say it was great, I will most definitely come again. My wife and daughter come all the time.
And rant and rave about the shrimp sauce. We will be back soon.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe loungeWe ate in the lounge for a more intimate setting. The bar service was slow, but overall we had a great experience. The food was tasty as always.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGrad PartyA friend and I had both of our families in town for graduation. We asked to sit together, and got a small room with two tables; ample room for the 15 of us who were there. Love going here for a special events. 100% recommend.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBday benihanasWe went for my sister and myself birthday with a group of friends. Great time. Fantastic

Best time i have had at Benihana's in awhile! (sLP)5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMprom!Over all everything was good. Although it was INCREDIBLY loud. The smoothie I had tasted fake. But the lemon chicken was fine.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my mom to this restaurantI took my mom to this restaurant for Mother's Day and it was fantastic! Our chef was awesome and the food was great. I would definitely go there again.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMbdaywe came in for my birthday.The chef was great!!Our waitress was a little slow we were almost done when she finally brought our rice!The chef even asked her twice and then finally went to go get it himself.This was the first time this has happened to us so it was not the norm
we will be back next month!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana-Good and LoudEating at Benihana was enjoyable. The food is good, the cooks are fun, and there are many families, which tend to make it louder than I like. Overall, a good place to eat dinner.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Special Occasion DinnerWe went to Benihana for the first time for my son's 17th birthday. We were a party of 5 with kids ages 17, 14, and 9. We all LOVED it. My son even commented that he ate mushrooms and onions and normally he wouldn't do that. Our chef was funny and entertaining and our server was very prompt. We spent more money than we normally would on dinner but we left absolutely stuffed and had leftovers to bring home, too. Highly recommended.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest EverI love love love Benihana's I am so happy with the food, service and fun!! I highly recommend!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than average!It was a nice dinig experience and our chef made us laugh often and put on a decent show. The food was quite good and prepared per our requests. Only improvement needed was more waitress time for drink refills!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We enjoyed a fun evening and chose Benihana as the destination to celebrate a 'milestone' birthday! The food was fabulous and as always, fun to watch the preparation. Thanks so much!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!!Went for the first time for my birthday with a few friends and had no clue what to expect. First of all, 30 dollars ain't too shabby. And minus the guy sitting next to us who had been there who like an 8 year old kept saying what all the tricks were before they were done, the service was excellent and fun! Alejandro is my boy. On top of the great service, the food was incredible. I will definitely be returning!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGoodOur chef did a great job and food was good. The crunchy roll was blah at best. Had to ask for kids chopsticks but not bad. I was looking forward to having a crowd sing for mom as it was her bday didn't get that either.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFun eveningVery reasonably priced for the large quantity and everything was very good. My two girls 7 & 8 loved it and want to go back again soon. It is rather loud so difficult to talk.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionsIt's always a great place to celebrate since the staff does so much without even asking (yet in a very tasteful way). The only concern is that it's always a bit loud- hard to hold a good conversation but with the nature of the restaurant it is what it is.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat timeI really had a great time visiting with my parents and brother. I had not been since I was a little kid in kindergarten but we went to celebrate my college graduation. We visited during lunch and ordered off the lunch menu. While the portions were not as large as I would have liked the taste was fantastic and the show entertaining which compensated for the price. Even though we made reservations they don't seat you until your whole party is present which was a little disappointing since one of us was about 10 minutes late and we ended up having to wait another half an hour to be seated. But overall it was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed my experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat services. chef was awesomegreat services. chef was awesome cook. great waitress5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana Rocks!Every time I visit Benihana with my friends or family I have a blast. They have absolutely fantastic food, wonderful hibachi chef's and a great menu. They feed you well for the price of the food, and you will not be disappointed you went!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy experience on this dayMy experience on this day was very good. However, the waitress did seem to be rushing us to leave, which I thought was odd. Also, the chef was surprisingly good at cooking food even though I thought wow, he used a lot of salt.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana is a great placeBenihana is a great place for a small group of peope.

Our table's chef - Hector - was fantastic!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved our Chef Carlos -We loved our Chef Carlos - our 5 year old granchild was with us and he was so engaging that she watched him constantly. He had several "tricks" up his sleeve (and hat)- quite a show.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoy Benihana and theWe enjoy Benihana and the entire experience from the ambiance to the chef cooking st the table.

Not too expensive and the food is definitley amazing!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur chef was awesome and theOur chef was awesome and the food was fantastic, as usual. Our sever was marginal and we were unfortunate to sit next to a very loud table with inappropriate language and we had children at our table. Not the restaurants fault at all but that is something to remember about the atmosphere there. You hear your neighbors more than the average restaurant and the atmosphere is just louder in general so if you like a quiet environment this isn't the place, unless you reserve on of their private rooms.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI realy enjoyed the atemosphereI realy enjoyed the atemosphere and enjoyed the fact of sitting with other people and conversating.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waitress was fairly busyThe waitress was fairly busy so it took multiple requests for a beer mug, glass of water, 2nd drink, etc. other than that, the chef did a very good and the quality of the food was as good as expected.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, great experienceWonderful food, great experience for anyone new to Benihana, as our table mates were.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our very favorites...theOne of our very favorites...the food and service is always great for special occasions or just everyday superb food!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMalways love coming here, thealways love coming here, the shrimp and fried rice are so yummy4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good and theThe food was good and the chef was very skilled. The food came out rather slow however, would've liked to have gotten the sushi before the chef started cooking. Overall, a good time and amazing food.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AM#1 DINNER & ENTERTAINMENT!We had a FABULOUS time celebrating our son's 17th birthday!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the staff for making an enjoyable evening. Special thanks to Carlos, our chef!! He was absolutely the highlight of our Benihana experience.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding ServiceThe food was excellent we were seated right awayn and I had requested a speacial Chef and he was not working so the manager gave us the head Chef Kenny!!!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad we changed our minds....Almost didn't go, but glad we did. My last memory of Benihana in Golden Valley was a dark, tired restaurant that had seen better days. We wanted to take our Finnish exchange student to a Japanese steakhouse for his 18th birthday and was about to choose another location when a friend said that Benihana GV had been recently remodeled. I was very pleasantly surprised...bright and new the restaurant exceeded my expectations. My family had a great time and my exchange student really enjoyed the experience. Great job Benihana!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a birthday celebrationI hadn't been to Benihana's for years - this trip was for my sister's birthday. We had a group of 8 adults, so we just fit at a hibachi table. While it was quite noisy, so you could only talk to people on your end of the table, we had a great time. The chef was very entertaining and the food was plentiful and delicious. It is pricey, but I didn't mind because I left quite full with leftovers for the next day. I will definitely be back.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCame there for my girlfriendsCame there for my girlfriends birthday. It was her first time and he absolutely enjoyed the whole experience! She wants to go back!!
