Benihana - Minneapolis
bdaywe 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 AMGood food, horrible serviceWe have been to this Benihana many time and never had any trouble. This time our waiter would disappear for an extended period of time and then not come back with what he was going to get.5/10/2013 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 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 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 AMBenihana is a great placeBenihana is a great place for a small group of peope.

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 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.

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 dining experience.Great dining experience. Once we were seated and placed our order, the real show began!! We had two children with our party who were mesmerized by the chef's skill in preparing the meal. Be aware that this is not a fast dining experience. It took two-hours from waiting to be seated until we were finished with dessert.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!!

It was a little hard to hear people on the opposite side of the table. I thought it was fairly expensive and would only go there for special occasions.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEven with a reservation myEven with a reservation my family and I had to wait 30+ minutes to be seated. This is not the first time this has happened. Also we were sat in a very cold part of the restaraunt with a fan blowing. Listening to the hostess and hosts complain about their fellow employees however was quit entertaining. Our server was exceptional. Our chef was mediocre at best as we have had him before.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome birthday deal if youAwesome birthday deal if you sign up for the email club.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great way for theIt was a great way for the 4 of us to gt together to celebrate 2 birthdays.

We did not get the chicken dish we ordered as we were the only ones to order a spicy chicken dish and we both got the same dish. We did NOT bring it to the attention of the server, but would have if we had been asked if we had everything as ordered. The food was good just not exactly what we ordered.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time atThis was my second time at Benehana's and it was delicious and entertaining.
