Always like going here. The food is always excellent and the service is great. I would recommend the fried rice.

Beni Hana in Scottsdale is the typical Hibachi experience. The chefs are friendly and put on a good show.

Fun place to go for special occasions. Expensive, but you get a lot of food. Loved the special
photo as a memento of my hubby's birthday.

Great Birthday Dinner
Best place to enjoy a meal with an entertaining show from the chef.

dinner and a show
Party of 3 adults, one child. We had a wonderful chef, not too loud and really engaged the children. The other party of 3, 2 adults one child. We were there for dinner and a show and we were not disappointed. As we used Opentable we were seated within a minute. I LOVE using Opentable. I believe they treat you even better than when you call for resies. Fast seating and the best tables. We were pleasantly greeted when we arrived, noting we arrived on a Saturday night at 6:30. Listen, it's Benihana's. It's not a quiet, intimate environment. But we were there for fun and good food, check and check. While it's not something we do once a week or even once a month, we will go back when we are looking for the "out of box" dining experience.

My daughter and I took my
My daughter and I took my wife there for her first time and it was wonderful. We will be back in August for my wife's birthday. It had been such a long time since I have went and I think we might go here more often. The chef (John) was amazing with his skills and very playful with the grand children. I will ask for him again when we go there to eat.

Warm & welcoming! Excellent food!
We went there for our son's 21st birthday. The service was excellent as well as the food! The staff were very warm and welcoming! My son felt very special and appreciated the attention on his birthday! Looking forward to going back!
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food. great service. we used the birthday coupon. excellent price.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
1st impressions are everything and Benihana employees definitely made us feel welcomed and provided excellent service..
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Benihana never disappoints. My daughter loved seeing the chef do his thing! This is a fun place. You won’t leave hungry.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was my first time visiting Benihana. Being that, I live further West away from the city. I had always heard about this place through Artists and word of mouth so, it's nice to finally experience it for myself. It was my Birthday and I drove 50 miles just to celebrate here & I must say I was impressed. The whole experience was worthy, amazing, and delightful.
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great chef, great food, great time
My wife & I, as well as all the others at our table, thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience; & I especially did since we were celebrating my birthday.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great tradition!
We (my husband, son and I) go to Benihana every year for my birthday. It is always good but this year was exceptional. Our chef was fantastic! Last year our chef wa a little tentative and that really impacted our experience. This year he was great! The food, as always, was fabulous. The servie was good. This year I made the reservation online and found it easier than doing it on the phone.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always z great choice for holiday , birthday or any celebration. Dinner AND a show!
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The only distraction was a table with a group of eight that were extremely loud and rude, with one woman that had a cackle that echoed throughout the restautant. Very disturbing.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Benihana is very good, fresh and seasoned well. If you get an energetic chef, he makes the dining experience fun as well as preparing and serving your dinner. Our experience this time was pleasant, but the chef did not separate the appetizers From the main course leaving everyone dining at a different time. We had a party of three, with another party of three at our table. Those who had shrimp got their meal first, then he prepared the steak and chicken which takes longer and last the fresh fish. We had shrimp and fish so one of our party ate last, leaving the rest of us either waiting for that person, or eating and being done and just sitting there. It was our first time at this venue.

WOW! AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE!
What a "Magnificent Restaurant!" My family and I enjoyed a very tasteful and delicious meal on July 4, 2013. It was an amazing dining experience! The menu is diversified and the food was absolutely DELICIOUS! Excellent service and friendly staff. Our chef, "TIM" was quite incredible with his food tricks and kept our table laughing while effortlessly preparing our ordered food selection. Tim, who we later found out was head chef was quite amazing. Our table decor was quite nice and the plates, and bowls were beautiful and unique! It was also wonderful to receive a complimentary photo at the end our most exciting evening! Benihana-Scottsdale is such a "GREAT" way to celebrate a birthday or any special event! KUDOS for the birthday coupon!
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cant beat Benihanas with their great food and great service. I would recommend the chicken fried rice. It is also a great place to go with a bunch of people.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend and I both celebrated our birthdays (a week apart) at Benihana's. The staff (other than the hostess) was fabulous and attentive. The hostess acted like we were interrupting her conversation with another hostess/staff. We arrived early and had a couple happy hour drinks at the bar. Yum! Then were seated at a table with 6 other diners (all men!) and the meal began. All of the food was wonderful, except the scallops were a bit overdone and on the verge of being rubbery. My companion loved her lobster and the garlic butter that came with it. The staff was very attentive through the entire meal. After the meal, we were presented with bowls of ice cream and had our picture taken. It was a very enjoyable evening.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always have a great experience at Benihanas. Great food and a great time. Hideo was a great cook.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time sitting about the grill. Thanks!

Everything about our experience
Everything about our experience was perfect from the moment we walked in te door. We came a few minutes early but were seated immediately. The service the top-shelf from the hostess, to the wait staff to the chef. Everyone was attentive and accommodating. The chef made sure all dishes were to our liking. We've come to expect the best in service and food at Benihana's and have never been disappointed.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
AWESOME AS USUAL!!!
It was my birthday and as usual the service and food was Awesome.....I had a party of 9 and we were seated perfectly at one table. I would recommend them to any and everyone.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We waited a very long time
We waited a very long time once we were seated at our teppanyaki table to get service, so we started on a bit of a negative. Luckily we were entertained by the chefs around us charming the guests and working their magic with the food. Four of us at the table had the $30 birthday coupon. Do not let it fool you into thinking that your tab will be low because it won't! Dinner for my 11 year old son and myself was right at $100 with the auto gratuity. Once we finally saw our server (literally 20 minutes after we were seated), the service improved. Our chef was amazing, both funny and talented, and the food was absolutely wonderful. I had the filet and lobster tail, and my son had the trio, which has filet, shrimp, and chicken.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had not been to Benihana in many years. I remember it as a more adult environment and was really disappointed to see so many kids and babies on a Saturday night. I think there is a time and place for kids and it is not at that time- Saturday night 9-10 pm?? Really?.
Also, people in Phoenix/Scottsdale dress pathetically like something you would find in a diner. I observed a different crowd and will not go there again. I was looking for a romantic adult dinner and found people dressed in undershirts and cutoffs and way too many kids.
The Chef was terrific, the food was terrific and we enjoyed the management's attention and service as well. Just the very wrong crowd.

Boyfriends 21st Birthday
Our waiter and our cook was awesome! This was both mine and my boyfriends second time dining here. I dined at the Chandler location years ago. The food was to die for and the drinks was exceptional.
Thank you for treating us so well. We will sure be back!!!

Always enjoy Benihana's. Our chef could of been a little more exciting and was kind of lax on the seasoning, but all in all it was good.

It was mine and my wife's anniversary so I had a special request. They had no problem fulfilling that request and everything turned out perfect.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chose Benihana's to celebrate my birthday - we sat at a table with three other couples -two of which were also celebrating birthdays. It was a fun evening, the food and service were great!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service
We were set up with an open table and shared with a young couple who had with them a couple of children. There were absolutely no problems. We were lucky in the fact that these parents knew how to raise their kids, The children were well behaved and pleasant. The whole evening was magic. The chef was excellent and friendly, the food he prepared was incredible. I would recommend Benihana's to any one!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved the menu choices. The place had a nice ambiance. It was not noisy at all. The chef, Rose, was engaging, fun to watch, and very accommodating to little extras. There were 6 of us at the table, each ordering a different item on the menu. Everyone liked what they ordered. The flavors all went together very nicely. We were celebrating 2 birthdays, and the service could not have been better. Everyone that waited on us was so ready to please everyone. The service was quick, professional and friendly. We will definitely go back for a special occasion as we live 2 hours away. It was worth the trip. There was more than enough food, we were all very full. The price was comparable to any fine dining menu. Loved our experience.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went here with my aunt and mother of course. We have all been here before and never are we disappointed. Rose was our chef, she put on a great performance and the food was delicious. Everything was phenom!!!! Will be back soon
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had lunch at Benihana - Scottsdale. We were very pleased with the food and staff. We decided to order off the dinner menu
so we could get the combination of filet and lobster. We also ordered a side of shrimp. The food was not as highly flavored as we usually like it, but was still very tasty. We enjoyed our experience very much.

Beninhana Never disapoints
took my wife to Benihana for her 30th bday. Its never a disappointment. Kids babysitter bailed so I was hesitant since I never took my kids there before. the staff was awesome to them. The cook really interacted with them. They sat us with another family. Food was good. Drinks were refreshing. I would recommend the White Peach Sangria. It was a great time.

Great first time
I was looking for a new restaurant to celebrate my graduation. I saw the tv ad for benihana and decided to give it a try. I went there on a Sunday night w/ family and friends (party of 6). I was a little surprised that we had to share our table at first, but given the limited number of chefs (1 chef per table) it made sense. The young couple we shared our table with were pretty nice.
The chef performance was very entertaining from writing I love u w/ the rice to make a train and vocalno with the onions. We had hibachi chicken, steak, shrimps and sushi. All tasting tasting great.
The ambience was festive and family friendly. Most people were celebrating birthdays. We must have heard 'happy birthday' in Japanese 3xs. Awesome dinner!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Birthday's are fun at Benihanas'
We went for a birthday celebration. Scott was our chef for the evening. He had a great sense of humor and kept the table laughing. He certainly made our dinner more memorable. We also love that they take a birthday dinner picture as a keepsake. Thank you Benihanas' for a wonderful dinner with great food!

Have nothing but good things to say about a wonderful evening
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chefs are good- but they need to have some different tricks -every chef did the same routine on the hibachi grill.... I used to go to Benihana in Philly and each chef would do a completely different routine. Food was as expected. Fun for a group or with kids .
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing: Scott especially
We were in Scottsdale on vacation from Chicago. We have been to this Benihana a few times in the past and have always ranked it at the top of all Japanese steak houses we have visited. So last week we went and it was even better, everything was great. The service, the happy hour sushi bar and drink bar values, but most of all the the chef Scott. His skills were vastly superior. Cut the chicken on the bias which made it more tender and tasty. His attitude, friendliness and cooking skills and showmanship were amazing. We even went again two nights later...and cancelled a reservation at a very high-end restaurant to return to Scott and Scottsdale's Benihana!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was amazing, the service was amazing and the chef was Amazing!!!!! My birthday dinner was simply amazing....

Once Upon A Time
Just to premise this, i love Bennihana's. The food has always been a hit each of the many times i have gone. The service, on point. I went this past weekend and it was the first time i didn't have a great experience. My food was a bit undercooked (if it weren't chicken i wouldnt be writing this). My biggest complaint would be to have fewer seats at the Teppan tables. With 8 seats on a small table there is ZERO elbow room. I am 115lb woman, i sat on the corner and was kicking and bumping my neighbor the whole dinner time. Bennihana's used to be a good place to go with a group and have a wonderful time. Anymore i feel it's less about the experience, and more about turning tables. :(
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of a Kind Dining Experience
The food was delish and the company divine! Do yourself a favor and check out Benihana's for a one of a kind dining experience of showmanship by a chef. Enjoy!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great idea for Birthday
Kids get to enjoy. Saw families with smaller children enjoying themselves. Place was very busy and service and Chef Scott was awesome.
Also we got a commemorative photo for our table (daughter's birthday). Nice touch.
