A word from Benihana - Troy
Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.

Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

    Chef vanessa is very competent, polite and worked harder than normal. The patrons did not even tip her for all the hard work she did. I tipped her for her excellent service she provided to them. Our waiter too was fabulous !!

    It was very crowded but of course it would be on a sweetest day Saturday, even though it was crowded and my group was 15 minutes late with reservations and had to wait for a table for what seemed to be over 30 minutes, it was still worth it. Your chief and waitress were awesome. The food was great and so were the drinks.

    The food was great that night, but didn't taste the same when I had to reheat it the next day, we got seated fast because of the reservation, the chef and his assistant were really nice.. I think my biggest problems were... my boyfriend is tall so he didn't have leg room, it was very loud so we had to lean in to hear each other talk, and it was kind of crowded so we didn't have much room.... but overall it was nice, I'll give it a 4 out of 5

    Ordered a trio, chicken, filet and shrimp for 37.50 just to eat it cold, accompanied by the smell of cleaning solution and leave the restaurant still hungry. It was embarrassing in front of our guests and it crossed this place off of our dining options for the future.

    The service was incredibly poor. We had to almost scream at the waitress so she could hear us. We asked for a great chef, it was a birthday celebration. We got a lame chef who barely addressed us, did 3 lame tricks and kept dropping the utensils. (kind of scary those knives are sharp) The women next to us (with another group) was on her cell the whole time. The girl at the table beside us was jamming' on her headphones. We used to love Benihana. The class has been taken out and it is no longer worth the money. I could go on for days but I won't. It was just bad. We won't be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    Fantastic food as always. My husband and I brought our 2 year old with us for our anniversary dinner. Everything was great, except that they were very busy and added our sons high chair to a full table, so he ate behind us instead of being sat at the table. It made it hard for all of us to eat because we had to turn around to give him food and picking up things that fell on the floor because there was no table in front of him. Again, everything else was great and we will still be back.

    It was my first time in Benihana`s Teppanjaki,I think it is a good experience to try at least once. The Chef was great and knew what he was doing. The wine prize was ok, we had a white zinfandel from California . The cocktails list is short but really good. I didn`t like that to see the sushi menu you need to ask for it, they have a separate menu only with sushi.

  • An Expensive Novelty for the Kids
    Wally
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Our 7-year-old daughter is the primary reason we dine here as often as we do. She enjoys the novelty of it all. As an adult, the novelty wore off long ago. Menu items are overpriced, and the routine performed by the cooks is cheesy and mundane (it has been the same routine ever since I can remember). I would almost liken it to an animatronic ride at Disney that repeats itself over and over all day long. Food is mediocre, and I always feel like I need to shower and wash my clothes when I get home to remove what can only be described as "Benihana stench". Lastly, if you're a small group, the additional guests assigned to your table could either make or break the night. We've sat with groups so loud we couldn't even hear ourselves chew.

    We have eaten st this restaurant for many years now and have always enjoyed it. It has been a while since we last ate there, however, and we were surprised at how much the prices had increased with no visible change in the portions. In fact, we were given less vegetables than have been given in the past. The food is always good and enough for two meals. The atmosphere is great but i will think twice about going again as the prices exceed the value.

    Decided to enjoy my milestone birthday at Benihana with the family. When I made our reservations online, it was suggested that I enroll on the chef's list to receive a $30 birthday discount, good for the month of my birthday. After registering, I tried to print out the coupon and was told it would take 24 hours for the coupon to register. So, no coupon for us. When my husband mentioned this to our server, he smiled and gave us a "them's the breaks" shrug. It was disappointing that while our family of 4 spent over $200 for the evening, they wouldn't honor any kind of discount on my birthday. It shouldn't take 24 hours to download a coupon! And even after mentioning it to the manager on the way out - nothing! Very disappointing.

    Great first impression foyer/waiting area with a lovely sushi lounge segueing to bar and comfortable dining areas. Entertaining chefs skilled with knives and cutlery...ours creatively shaped a large "heart pounding" heart from rice, a steaming "volcano" from well-stacked onion rings, and flipped several shrimp tails skillfully into his shirt pocket and tall chef's hat, eliciting more oooos and aaahs! The sweet plum wine was delectable, chicken broth soup was good, salad fresh with a tasty light dressing, and salmon and veggie sushi appetizers yummy. The fresh-cooked steak and sauce and the shrimp were amazing (my son said it was the best shrimp he ever had!)! Complimentary birthday ice cream and fast checkout topped off a great experience!

    We had to wait for 45 minutes to get seated. Plus the food is mediocre for the money we spent. The chef who cooked our food couldn't speak a word of English and was not good. We were excepting a great show from the chef but he didn't do nothing. I could have entertained better than him. I will never go back to again.

    I used to love Benihana. Don't get me wrong. Food is always great, but you're paying for the "experience." I could care less. As I get older, I would rather eat at home. We went into Benihana with a birthday coupon, and after tip spent $75. Great food, but not worth the hype for the price. Great for special occasions, but not for a regular dinner.
