My only complaint is that
My only complaint is that the noise level gets too high and it is hard to talk/hear the person next to you, (there isn't an option that suits this).

We loved our time at Benihana! We always do. Mario was our chef and he was excellent and Nichole was our server and she was wonderful, too! Thank you for a great night celebrating my husband's birthday!

Great food, good time
The food was excellent, and the entertainment was good. The chef made a couple minor mistakes on the acrobatics, but the chef made the food to perfection.

Not your typical restaurant!
Benihana is practically "dinner and a show"! My guests were transfixed watching the chef prepare our meal right at the table. I love to bring people who have never been there to Benihana for the first time...I always get a kick out of their reaction. My 13 year old asked if they allow people to just go watch!

Great Neighborhood restaurant
I've been coming to Benihana for many many years. It is always reliable and fun. I enjoy watching them cook my meal. The chef was very fun and personable.

Always a Great Experience
We've been to this restaurant a few times, and I cannot get enough of the experience. The food is absolutely fantastic. It may be a little pricier than some places, but it is definitely worth it. Great for dinner-for-two or for the whole family.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
always great food
We look forward to eating there every time. Always has been great, never had a bad experience there.
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's Benihana, watch a commercial and you know what you're getting. It's always fun to have your food prepared right in front of you.

Great Food/Not so great service
We love Benihana! That said, we had a wonderful and very proficient chef! He was among the best we've ever had. However, our server disappeared, literally! It was crazy and has never happened to us before! We will go back, for sure! It just made us sad that 2 other diners at our table had this server as a first impression! The food was fabulous as always!
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I go here for lunch all the time for business and with friends. Prices are just a few dollars more than going anyplace else for lunch. Highly recommended!

Dinner was very nice and its
Dinner was very nice and its always fun to watch the cooks flip utensils and give a rhythm and beat to the service. I couldn't understand the cook though and there is a little bit of a language barrier. It was more fun the first time I went because I could actually understand the cook and he did a lot more with the food we were being served. Still, I think in the future I will go back just to see what excitement the night has in store.

Girls night out
Great place for a group of girls to meet up when the husbands are away. Bring the kiddos in for an entertaining meal!
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great customer service and food
Our waitress and cook were excellent and really friendly/helpful. Food was great as always!

Worth the drive !
Eight years ago, we used to go to our local neighborhood Benihana's. Since then,the nearest is a 5 1/2 hour drive. We love the food ,atmosphere and service so much that we make it a weekend overnighter trip every couple of months. We have literally tried every menu item at some point. Our absolute favorite go to is Rocky's Choice with a Spicy Tuna roll and Alaska roll sushi appetizer.

Good Food and Fun
Was very enjoyable and the food was great. I had the Teriyaki chicken which was suggested on a review I read and I was not disappointed. We had a chef that I could tell was rather new and seamed to be reserved when it came to showing off his Hibachi skills; However the other chefs that where at the nearby tables were very entertaining to watch as well. From eggs being tossed around on spatulas, to flying shrimp made for an entertaining dining experience.
The couple next to us had two toddler aged kids with them and it was just as entertaining to watch their excitement and interaction with their chef. Defiantly will be bringing our kids on our next visit. Prices ranged anywhere from $15 - $30 per plate depending what you ordered.

We came for the Stampin' Up! convention and this was a great place to get together and have a great meal and have a chance to talk. The alcoholic drinks were great.

Benihana is one of our favorites
Loved our chef, Luis. He was a really great cook. Plus he was entertaining and friendly. The food was excellent.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Food but hard to find!
We had a wonderful time and the food was beyond filling and delicious! We drove around for almost 30 minutes within a 1-2 block area trying to find the restaurant - there really needs to be better signage especially around the construction area. Felt bad we were late for our reservation but the hostess seated us right away. Thank you and looking forward to dining again at Benihana!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was such a fun experience as 3 of us were seated with 5 others. Total of 3 birthdays at our table. Fun getting acquainted w/ new friends. The food was WONDERFULLY prepared.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
good for birthdays
We celebrated my son's birthday. It was fun and the food was fantastic!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Isnt exactly the most healthiest food in the city, but its great tasting and a fun atmosphere.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only down side to our experience was the time it took for us to get our check we had finished eating and we still were waiting for 40 minutes to get our check pay and get the receipt.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place to eat
We came in on Sunday night. Our chef was fantastic and there was great interaction with the 2 kids we brought in. The waiters and waitresses were great about keeping our drinks full and making sure we had everything we needed. We had a great time and will go back again on our next trip to Salt Lake City, UT.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoyed taking my parents there to eat. We all loved it.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. The provided $30 off her order and treated us like VIP guests. We had our own table and they took a picture of us and gave it to us in a cute little Benihana frame. The chef was fun and outgoing which made the dining service spectacular. Will go again.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
So, I took my new friend here on our second date. We had a very good time, the food was excellent, the chef was entertaining and we really enjoyed the evening.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time at Benihana. I was very pleased. Loved to see the food prepared at the table - not only entertainment, but also to see what ingredients were put into the food. Good experience - will definitely go back. If it weren't for the birthday certificate, I never would have tried it. THANKS!

Chicken Fried Rice
Make sure you upgrade your rice to the Chicken Fried Rice.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love Benihana and they have never let me down when it comes to food. The food alone saved this experience. Salt Lake City is a beautiful city and having a Benihana close by was very nice. I went to celebrate my birthday and had a good time. The location is awkward in the city. You have to go searching for it and it looks like the theater next door will be blocking it completely now. The elevator ride was a joke and, I'm sure, unsafe. I wish they would do something about their location.

Great choice for birthday dinner! An energetic, happy place for any age. The food was fresh and the service was great.

Dine O Round
Came in for the Dine O Round (Lunch) and it wads GREAT!
Food was amazing, our chef was funny and polite. I would totally reccomend this to a friend.
I always have a good time when I dine at Benihana's

Great food and show
My family of 11 went to Benihana the other night. Everything was outstanding. Service, food, showmanship of the chef, and fun.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed dining here. It was excellent food and service.

Fun birthday celebration
I took my sweetheart here for his birthday, along with his college-age son. They also brought another party to our table, for their own birthday celebration. It was Dine-a-round, a special limited time program that Salt Lake City puts on where many restaurants offer a set price multi course meal. Benihana was participating so I and my sweetheart elected to get the special. i had the spicy tuna roll and he had the Boston roll, then we both had the filet mignon and they offered dessert as well, of the three choices available we chose tempura bananas. All of the food was incredible! The filet mignon was moist and melt in your mouth flavorful. A problem: they charged other party for our food and it took a long time to resolve. Otherwise great!

Benihanas - Great Food, Fun Night
We were celebrating my husband's birthday and chose Benihana because we love their food. The time period we went was that busy, so we had a table all to ourselves. Our chef she great and did all the tricks and gave us all the bells and whistles. The food was delicious! We always have a great time when we go there!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great chef, new staff
Having eaten at this particular Benihana's every few months, I have noticed a difference between the chefs. The new chefs tend to overcook the food, while the skilled chefs are brilliant at making sure the food is perfect. On this particular outing, we got an experienced chef, but a new server who was in the weeds. It took us over 2 hours, from start to finish, and we ended up having to pay extra for parking because the validation didn't cover the extra time in the restaurant. I still enjoy going to Benihana's, but I will try to stay away from the last weekday of the month when all the birthday certificates are being used.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went there for my husbands
We went there for my husbands birthday, the food was exquisite! and they gave us free ice cream to celebrate with! It was fabulous! Thanks Benihana!

We love to go to Benihana's.
We love to go to Benihana's. The food was great and service was also fantastic.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This resteraunt was unique in the approach but lacked a solid commitment to really tasty food. The server was theatrical without being interesting. Great for parties on 6-8 people to enjoy an evening.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place
We love it for our family - it is a great place for my wife and I to go some where nice and bring the kids.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place was exceptionally good! My steak, fried rice, and shrimp were cooked to perfection. Benihana is definitely a place I would return to. However, I would recommend this place for larger dinner parties due to the seating style (if you don't like to sit with others, that is).
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always great fun
We had a great time, our chef was excellent! We had a gluten free request, and they cooked everything on the grill for us gluten free. It was nice that they accommodated our request. I couldn't eat the soup or the dressing on the salad. It would have been nice if they had a gluten free option besides oil and vinegar for those. All around we had a nice meal.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect for the Conference
A group of 8 had 90 minutes for lunch. I went on-line made a res for 8 and it was perfect. Got our minds off of work and entertaining. The only negative is that's it is little hard to converse afterward.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Still good after all these years
It has been years since I was downtown, so I wasn't sure how well Benihana would be. Turns out, no worries--it was as good as I remember it to be. Great food, great service, and fun atmosphere.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
I moved from California . I have been to many Benihana 's love every one of them. Some of the locations I have been to Beverly Hills, Encino, Newport Beach, Tucson , Las Vegas just to name a few. Love love it. I am glad there is one here in salt lake.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a great experience overall. Two menu items were out, however, and I missed out on both the Japanese soda (original flavor) and dessert (no lactose free options.) Had no trouble getting in, even with one of our party in a wheelchair.
