The food was great and the chef was entertaining. A great experience for a group of 8 or just for 2. The bar area offers a great selection of drinks as well as food items.

Loved the food, and had a great time.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for the KidsI took my wife and two children to Benihana and it was so much fun to watch the wonder in my children's eyes as the chef went through his routine and made them laugh and watch in awe as he twirled eggs and made an onion volcano. Great way to spend some time with the family and have dinner. In addition, the food is great, tasty and hot!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!I have been to 4 different locations of Benihana restaurants and I think this is the best one I have been to.

Their cocktail list is extensive, and their sushi is excellent. The heart of the dining experience is the show that is put on right at the grill. You MUST order the chicken fried rice when dining there. This is a unique dining experience, the food is good & basic, the show is entertaining, and the vibe is fun. A must do experience at least once!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest 1st time experienceBenihanas was great... From the service and entertainment to the great food...

Perfect place to take kids.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana is a great placeBenihana is a great place to take a group of kids for a celebration. The food is good for both adults and kids and it feels like a real celebration. Birthday ceremony with photos is fun too.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best Benihana experience,The best Benihana experience, foodwise, in ten years. Chef Cesar cooked to perfection. A real treat and a pleasant surprise as my expectations for this perineal favorite of mine have been significantly lowered over the past ten years.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana has been the restaurantBenihana has been the restaurant for family occasions beginning in the 70's in southern California, to the present in Japan Town, San Francisco. This particular evening we were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary.
Service was very good, our most talented chef wowed us with his knife skills, cooked our steaks and seafood to perfection, and lastly he made the evening fun for the youngest in our group of 6.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFun for kids and adultsFood was surprisingly good. Not a quiet romantic dinner spot, but fun for a group or a birthday. Great for kids.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHats Off to Chef HugoHugo is one of the best hibachi chefs at this location. He is so full of energy, and actually takes the time to cook with enthusiasm, seasoning, and love.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA little too loud for olderA little too loud for older people, but perfectFor kids and special occasion, not too formal,Lots of options for food, staff accommodating.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for kids & groupsWe took our daughter to celebrate her 4th birthday and she had the best time! Our chef Javier was fantastic not only with his routine of cooking tricks he was also very interactive with the guest at the table. Our waitress was also very attentive and went out of her way to make sure our daughter was enjoying herself. So if you have been to Benihana more than once you know the routine but what can change from each experience is the quality of service you recieve from the staff, this time it was very good and would have been outstanding if the host team had been friendlier.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for what it is - decentGreat for what it is - decent teppanyaki at a chain restaurant. There's always a birthday in the room, a chef is always flipping a shrimp tail into a pocket/hat, and it never matters how you ask your filet to be cooked (it's coming out well done, medium well if you're lucky). It's overpriced, the staff don't speak loudly enough, and the wine selection is pretty grim, but they have amazing fried rice and it's always a fun time.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good experience. OnlyVery good experience. Only glitch in the evening was the bar was out of the ingredients for the first two cocktails we tried to order for my wife.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMJonathan was fantastic!!!Jonathan was fantastic!!!

The food was delicious, the chef was amazing and he interacted with everyone at the table and his tricks were amazing. The staff was great and I love dining there.... Only negative was that we had a 9pm reservation and we were not shown to the table until 9:35pm - that wait time is a bit excessive.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertainment with great goodGreat food and great entertainment. Seafood is delicious and the chefs are always aiming to please. Food is always cooked to perfection.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFun time had by allWas very entertaining. Our chef Armando was friendly and genuinely nice to us all. Talented and friendly. Unfortunately we were sitting in the smoke path and the smoke occasionally would blow to our side of the table. Don't know if the fan wasn't strong enough or if that's just the way it always works. The food was tasty.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMthis was a awsome place tothis was a awsome place to go to i have nothing bad to say at all, i would definetly return here in the future2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my grandchildren 6I took my grandchildren 6 and 9 years old.
