Our chef was amazing! The food was the best we had ever had there. They are doing their utmost to practice social distancing. The only drawback was that it is chilly inside of the restaurant. Bring a sweater/coat/wrap! Otherwise, almost perfect!!!!!

The hostesses and waitresses were GREAT!!!! The cook was very quiet and didn’t really interact. The food could have been more flavorful. Overall for what we paid it was not worth it. We will not be returning

Food was very good as always. Our server and chef were both friendly and provided great service. One thing I noticed and had actually noticed on a previous visit also but had not written a review until now is that as you walk in to their front entrance/desk area there is a smell of sewage or something not very pleasant. Not sure what’s going on there but once you’re back where the tables are the smell is no longer present. I hate to point that out but I think it’s necessary to improve that small area for the clients dining experience. Otherwise thanks and we will definitely be back!

The manager there seemed to have a attitude about everything and was giving my girlfriend attitude and a stank face when she only asked how long our wait would be. At first she was about to turn us away just because we “ didn’t “ have reservations even tho the restaurant wasn’t crowded in the slightest and was half capacity , the food was good but the service ruined the experience and that’s the second time I’ve been there with the same experience from her. I do not recommend this location

It is tradition I celebrate my October birthday with a couple of long time friends at Benihana. The server Melissa was extremely nice and pleasant as well as our chef, I believe his name was something like Masumana.

Love Benihana. We come here to celebrate bdays. The only thing is that we had to wait for like 15 minutes when we arrived eventhough we made reservation a week earlier. I thought that when you make reservations, you will be seated right away when you arrive.

We had reservations for 12:15 and we ended up waiting 30 minutes before we decided to leave and go elsewhere. I hate leaving a bad review during a pandemic but that was just unacceptable.

We celebrated 2 birthdays and it was awesome as always. We had a great time. The entertainment while waiting to eat was as fun as always. And we had a better dessert this time than last time. The ice cream was fresher. We can't wait to go back!

It was good but not great. Benihana is usually great but this time not so good. The soup didnt taste fresh and the cocktail thats usually pretty strong was watered down. Service was good. Chicken fried rice okay. Salmon with noodles okay.

Everything worked out really well, I made a mistake by reserving for 2 when we actually had a party of six but I put that in the notes. I called beforehand to confirm our reservation and the person I spoke with was very helpful reassuring me that they will be able to seat us even though he thought our reservation was for 2. It was my son’s 9th birthday and he enjoyed the show the chef did for us, his face lit up like the sun and at the end they sang Happy Birthday in English and Japanese. It was a great experience.

It was ok. We have went to Benihana’s before and loved it. This time we went for my daughters birthday (10) and brought my son (3) for the first time. Our reservation was at 11. He didn’t come out to cook until 11:50 and we could barely hear him. With the mask on we couldn’t hear a word.
The kids didn’t even realize he was talking to them. We drove an hour since our closest Benihana was closed and just didn’t have the experience we hoped for.
After we got our food the table behind us cook came out and he was so loud and outgoing my son ended up watching him the whole time.
Wish we would of had him instead.
Most likely will not go to this location again.

I love this place. Never been to this location before because it’s kind of far, but it is the only one currently open during COVID. Everyone was really friendly, besides once we were done, we were pretty much kicked out while I was still finishing my ice cream, the bus boys were cleaning up beside me, basically hinting to hurry up and leave, that’s the only reason, I’d give a 4 and not a 5. Other than that, the food tasted great and the chef put on a good show as expected at any Benihana.

Good food, the chef was nice and the room was spacious with only four people to a table. Only the portions where smaller then they use to be and the waitress forgot salad dressing and sauces on my togo order. Overall a good experience

The cook was in a hurry and wanted to take a break. Fried rice were missing chicken. And only did one trick and just cooked and not even converse with us. Usually the cook does a lot of tricks. I guess he just a cook at the back and doesn’t know how to converse with customers. I hope they train people that they just get from the back to fill in.

We always go to Benihana every birthday and this is the worst
