It’s been a few years since the last time I was At Benihana. The place doesn’t look too clean. The bar counter was sticky. I asked The bartender to clean it and he did. But didn’t clean the edges and was still sticky. I had To ask for a wet napkins to clean ir. The table was the same. So sticky. They told me the tables need refinishing.
By other tables ( empty tables) were some napkins on the floor. Overall wasn’t as clean as I remember. It’s in need of a manager to keep on top of it.
The food was good. The service was ok.
Not what I experienced The last time I visited

Our chef was super friendly and had a great personality. We enjoyed talking with him while he created our meal. The only suggestion I would have is to make sure there are no egg shells in the rice. The bowl had an eggshell stuck to the bottom where he mixed eggs.

The Chef did a pretty good job but seemed to think that 10 lbs of garlic butter makes everything better. My lobster was terribly over cooked. I didn't think they could harvest lobster tails that small. I probably should have had him re cook a lobster tail but felt like that would put a downer on the entire table. I was about to tell him my filet mignon was done but fortunately he began to take it off.

I had a reservation for 10pm and did not get seated until 12pm and also witnessed a whole staff Argue with a couple that were seated a while before I was approached to be sat. Also the table that were seated beside me were very loud and I couldn’t even enjoy my meal with this being my first time I will not be back.

The service is bad and getting worse. This time we had a reservation set for 10 and ended up being offered a table at 10:49. How crazy is that. Got tired of waiting and ate at the bar. No ambiance etc. We are judged on open table as clients but what about the businesses. They need accountability as well.

We got seated with three young boys were obviously stoned out of their minds. They were making jokes, and watching videos, and being generally disruptive at the table. We are to mid 40s parents, who just wanted to go out for a date night. We found ourselves sitting at the table with three very disturbing young men. On top of that they distracted the cook a lot, and the waitress kept coming over to lecture them. We also found the food to be way too salty. It was not a good experience.

We were seated at 5:05, the cook didn’t come until 6:30. We left the restaurant at 8pm. It was really long wait, we were starving. Two tables that were seated after us were already eating! Can’t believe it… Also, the server wasn’t really nice to us and she didn’t care too much we were waiting that long. We didn’t get any discount either. Not gonna come back to this location for sure.

We were shown to a table about 15 minutes after our reservation time, which wasn’t so bad, but then we were forgotten. After sitting there for 15 minutes with not even a glance from any of the servers circulating throughout the dining area, my husband went to alert the hostess of our situation. We saw the hostess speak with a server and point in our table’s direction, so we thought that had done the trick. Not! We gave it 5 more minutes, but still no acknowledgement from any of the waitstaff. So, we bailed and headed across the street to P.F. Chang’s. Much better service there!

We had a 7:15 reservation. They took us to our table at 8 and at 8:15 we were still waiting for our server. The table was sticky, the grill looked dirty, and the chefs cooking at the other tables were slow and doing none of the fun hibachi “tricks.” Best decision we made all night was when we got up and left to go eat somewhere else!
