Dustin was amazing! Today was a sad, fearful day as the news was increasingly scary, and Dustin was fun, got the table engaged in conversation, and made the food perfectly. I considered cancelling our reservation due to virus concerns, but I am so glad we went!

The manager and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I'd recommend my family and friends, if/when Covid-19 stops spreading and all the restaurants become back to life again.

Everything was good except for the cook. The cook didn’t perform a good performance, seemed nervous and making a mess with the food.

Honestly the staff just didn’t seem that they were in a great mood, they all seemed annoyed and mad... our cook was great but our waitress was very slow and forgot a lot of stuff. To be honest the vibe at the Newport Beach location is so much better and the Anaheim location should really take notes because it was a let down

We dine at BH often about 12 times a year. This was the most fun we have had in a long time. We got lucky and had a great table, our groups didn't know one other but had an amazing night.

We had a very nice time. The food was great. A little problem with the bill. An alcoholic drink was included in our bill that we had not ordered.

Not very clean nor did we get what we ordered. Waiters hair was a mess and hanging in his face. Grabbing the glasses from the top when serving. Not cool.

My fiance and I chose to dine at Benihana on 3/10/2020 for our 10 year anniversary. We had chief Shivo whom was a great cook but we were seated with a former employee and his family. The whole dinner employees kept coming up to the table to to greet them very obnoxiously. The rest of the dinner Shivo and the employee kept discussing “the old days” of when they worked together. All of the women they would hit on, and women that they wanted to sleep with including the server. She was great, very polite and efficient. Shivo did not perform the traditional tricks that we so love to see when dinning at Benihana which was very disappointing. All left over food or upcharges would all go to the former employee and his family. For the most part, we all ordered the same thing from the menu yet we all received very different portions. Shivo was interacting with the former employee and his family instead of concentrating on his tricks and cooking. We felt left out the entire meal! We were looking forward to our meal at Benihana and were very disappointed with the way our evening turned out. Never could we have ever imagined such a nightmare of an anniversary dinner.

I will NEVER go back to that noise again. The portion sizes were very small, and I left hungry and broke. I had to ask for rice, I had to ask for water, I had to ask for tea. The cook tried to talk to us, but no one could hear him. What ever happen to Brussel spouts' that you used to serve? The place was dirty, and I walked out with a head-ack. Never again will I go there.

LATER the ONLY review this site allows are good ones. If you were honest (which you are not) you would also list words of discomfort - not only to ones YOU WANT to hear.

This place has been slowly going down hill and it was at all time high Saturday night. We have been going to this location for years and we will not be going back anytime soon. Pretty horrible. Rude people at the front desk and the food was not good. Very dissapointed.
