Went on a date night with the wife and was seated after a short wait, everything after that went down hill. We ordered our beverages ( Unsweetened Ice Tea ). It took us 25 min. to receive as our drinks as other table mates where on re-fills. It also took 20 minutes for a Chef to come to our table after much confusion with the staff and what chef was supposed to cook for what table, 2 different Chef's came to our table then left because they were at the wrong table before ours finally appeared. My wife and I ordered the 6 Course meal in which I received 5 and she received 4 and the Chef cooked everything at separate lengthy time intervals that we were eating 1 portion of the meal at different times instead of having a complete meal together, Rice came waited for Shrimp ( Couldn't tell the difference between the Complimentary Shrimp and the COLLOSAL Shrimp that was part of my 6 Course meal ) then Chicken came by then 40 minutes had passed Rice and Shrimp was done already, therefore ate the Chicken and Steak as if it were a separate meal. One Couple just took there order to go due to the length of time it took to get a complete meal, even settled the bill before food was finished cooking. We will not be going back to this Restaurant UNHAPPY CUSTOMERS.

The chef completely forgot my meal. I had to wait an additional 15 mins on top of the hour I already waited for him to cook my meal after everyone else was done. Did not give any type of discount or anything. Good was over salted and had way too much pepper on it.

The entire dining experience was EXCELLENT!

The hostess, Vanna, was GREAT; the sever, Tay, was EXCEPTIONAL and the cook, José was FANTASTIC!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Hibachi Shrimp dinner entrees (especially the chicken fried rice).

The Buckhead Benihana should send ALL of their staff and management to the Alpharetta Benihana to LEARN how to "Do it RIGHT!"

KUDOS to the Alpharetta Benihana!!

I went to benihana's for a quiet meal alone in hopes to have a lively table but not too much. The individuals at my table had way too many changes to everything that was cooked. The chef really could not grasp the entire order of the table which only consisted of three individuals because he seemed to cater to the one person who needed all of the changes and extras with her meal. It took away from the experience and made my visit questionable as I will not visit this location as often. I was very disappointed,

It was bad all the way around and did not seem like a serious legitimate business or one that will remain viable or in business long.

Seated and waited 45 minutes for a chef to show up at table and decided to leave after 45 minutes and go to another restaurant. And credit card machine didn’t work to process appetizer as we departed. Only saving grace was cashier apologized and said to go and don’t worry about it.

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

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.
