Always a Dining Experience
This is a great place for group birthday or graduation celebrations. Entertainment for the children and adults, many choices on the menu to suit whatever your "flavor". Sometimes hard to get in, if last minute. I would definitely recommend making a reservation as it is a popular spot.

the best around
Benihana is the best place to eat. We have been going there for over 15 years and never once did we get a bad meal or experience. We love Harley and always request him to cook for us. My husband enjoys Harley and his sense of humor he is really a very good chef. The room is filled with excitement all the time and they really let the world know that it is your birthday or special occasional with their songs and clapping. We really recommend this establishment to all people we come in contact with. We always say have you ever ate at benihana if not you are missing the best food around. The waitress really have a hard job when the place is kickin and we do not have to wait long at all. Thanks for a great place to go to.

Food, service, atmosphere were delightful! Our experience proved to be a great escape from the average restaurant. Thanks, Benihanas, for making my birthday a great, memorable one!

Food as always was very good and the chef entertaining. Our waitress though mistake -free, seemed spread thin. The restaurant was packed for a Tuesday and it seemed liked the staff was too few to take care of all the tables. There were times we would not see our waitress for more than just several minutes. The folks at our table unbeknowst to us were always waiting for their drinks to be filled and they finally asked another waitress to fill their drinks.Other than a large investment in time it was an enjoyable experience. Will definitely go back.

Good Food & Fun
The food was delicious & the fun of watching them make it right in front of you is a show our kids even enjoyed.

For an enjoyable night out I would strongly suggest Benihana. We had a great time as it was very entertaining to see the skilled cook fix the food right at your table. The food was excellent and healthy. All ages will enjoy this restaurant If you are celebrating a special occasion, let them know. Enjoy the food and leave with a smile! Try it and you will like it. We will return.

Great food every time
I normally only go there for birthday parties but I took a date there this time and had a really grey time and so did she. The chef was awesome and made everyone at the table laugh.

cruz on over
I was looking for a nice place to take my fiancé to dinner, she had never been to benihanas so I thought it would be a nice place.. when we walked through the door were taken to our seats where others were already seated. we introduced ourselves and right away made new friends. Our chef had come and he was great. We had a great time good food and great company.

Very Fun Dinner!
I chose this restaurant for my 31st birthday with my husband, parents and in-Iaws, it was great from start to finish. The service is superior and the food is delicious with simple ingredients.

More Fun Than You Pay For
Always a fantastic choice. My mom and I got seated with a birthday party. We immediately made a connection and were even asked to be in the birthday photo. I come here whenever I can. I suggest you do to!
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is fresh, crisp and delicious. The Teppan chefs are outstanding and entertaining. If you have kids, they love watching the chefs cook, so fun. I would recommend this restaurant to young and old alike. Outstanding restaurant.

7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been twice since my first time and I LOVE it! Too bad its so pricey or we'd go more often! Its a cool experience. Its even better if you get a more entertaining chef!

Cooking Show or Sports Event
It's like being a participant at a cooking show or sports event.

I have wanted to dine here for a long time, and when my birthday arrived this year, I knew where exactly I wanted to go. I want you to know it was great. We all had a wonderful time and the food was such fun to eat. The whole restaurant was filled with Birthday people the crowd made for a rousing time. I can't wait to go again
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
we had the lunchboat for the first time it was very filling and good

Specials deals for 2
We love Benihana! However, mis-leading on specials for a discounted price when you add an additional 3 dollars each for fried rice. $46 now becomes $52 which amounts to $26 per person. Not a real good deal, especially when majority like fried rice and its part show. But more disappointing when you find out right when they are asking for your choice on the menu. It might be in the fine print which is not apparent when customer sees a deal special, only to find out there is an extra charge for fried rice. So it is mis-leading there for a little disappointing. Otherwise my experience has with Benihana has always is spectacular.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our whole family agrees that this place is delish.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great show...great time...great food...what else is there to say?
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was excited to go to Benihana for the first time but this was not the restaurant for a first time visit. Our waitress was fairly rude and our at table chef had such a thick accent we could barely understand him. He put on a great show though. I will definitely visit a different Benihana later.

my friend's first time to benihana
i made 6pm reservations-we were early and got in at 5pm, no problem. the cook "Harley" was great with lots of tricks and a smile. my friend loved the food, loved the tricks, loved the restaurant...and that was all that mattered!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience! Benihana is a fun place for the whole family.

My Special night
My wife and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary at Benihana's. It was a great time, great food, fun experience and we enjoyed ourselves very much.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
My family & I are extreme regulars of Benihanas, it's fun, the food is fabulous...the entire dining experience is simply superb. Our favorite Master Chef is Martinez, he has been preparing our gourmet meal for at least 5 years now & I wouldn't have it any other way. All the chefs are good, with varying tricks & personalities, but if you want your filet mignon, lobster, salmon, fried rice, and all the other items prepared to perfection...ask for Martinez.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
GOOD FOOD, GOOD FUN, GREAT
GOOD FOOD, GOOD FUN, GREAT PLACE FOR A GROUP TO ENJOY THE ENTERTAINING CHEF'S AND ATMOSPHERE. WOULD RECOMEND TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHEN IN SACRAMENTO ENJOY AN EVENING OUT.. PRICES ARE FAIR AND FOOD WAS GREAT,

I absolutely loved this restaurant and i cant stop talking about it!! Love it! Great food, nice people you sit with super cool and fun :)
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had reservations for four and had to wait a little before we were seated but the place was very busy. It was a Friday evening and we were out celebrating my birthday and it was an overall great experience. The whole reason to go to Benihana is for the experience and it is unlike any other. I gave four stars throughout for a great experience, great food, and great drinks which are slightly overpriced.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still the best Teppanyaki
Benihana is one of those places that never changes but manages to be different every time you go there. The food is always cooked to perfection and the skill and showmanship of the chefs is unequaled anywhere. From melt in your mouth filet mignon to tender chicken to perfectly done shrimp, this is one of the best dinners you can have prepared for you. Seriously, just go... you know you want to!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT Chef, good menu
Took our grandson for his 13th birthday. Really took care of him and his 7 year old sister. Food great, but restaurant needs to be sproused up a little ... Very clean ...
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were sat immediately
We barely walked through the door, 10 minutes before our reservation, and the hostess called us to our table, before we even checked in! Great timing and so glad to have booked reservations through Open Table. We tried to go without reservations a week ago and there was an hour and a half wait! We will always use Open Table from now on! Thanks so much!

wonderful as usual
We always enjoy going to Benihanas and this experience was no different.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tons of fun!
We had a great time! My son (11) really enjoyed himself and was inspired by the chef's and their cooking style. Great bar and customer service as well. No matter how many how many people were there (it was VERY crowded) the customer service never let up!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place for a date. Dinner and entertainment all in one.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a good show
We chose Benihana for a birthday celebration. Our chef did not disappoint - he was fun and attentive. The food was delicious, although a ton of butter is used during cooking so it is not healthy. Our waiter was a huge disappointment. My father is allergic to onions, so we told the waiter when we first ordered our drinks. He brought a gin martini for him without olives (he said that he told the bartender my dad couldn't eat olives??). Then the waiter served onion soup - including my father. He took it away and brought back miso soup - with onions floating in it. He returned with miso soup without onions. He then brought salad with onions in the dressing, then returned with a salad, oil and vinegar. Service was so bad it was comical.

This is a unique experience
This is a unique experience and fun for children but not priced to make it worth going frequently.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place was very entertaining!!! I went with my 2 daughters ages 13 & 11- they had a blast, one even wants to be a chef!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time except room temperature was uncomfortably very cold inside which cooled off my food yo quickly AND I don't like to eat with my coat on. When I mentioned it to an employee she just said "I know the heater is on because it's warm in back", but she didn't do anything about my concern nor did I see her mention to anyone else, like maybe a supervisor !
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great as always
Dinner here was great as always. We went for a birthday celebration (though did not let them know that since we don't like the attention). We really enjoy the slower pace to eat and having it prepared right in front of you. The Land and Sea platter is my favorite and my husbands is the Seafood Diablo. Ever since he found this dish, it has become his absolute favorite.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was my moms 68th bday & first time here. She had a wonderful time. Our chef, Tracy was awesome very friendly & energetic. I would ask for him again. He made our experience great! The food was delicious & the lemon drop martinis were fab!!
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always go for dinner for family birthdays everyone always chooses to go to Benihana's we love it!
