    Food was delicious! Service not good for amount of money paid. Front desk girl had no personality and was not happy/friendly. Our chef was just ok, he walked away briefly 3 times! Not much fun.

    Very disappointed. Our waitress greeted us, and said she'd be back in a second. 25 minutes later she reemerged to take the drink orders. Waited another 20 minutes for our water. She took out order finally. I ordered the Benhana Trio as I always do. My steak was grissly and tasted gamey. My chicken had very chewy, tough parts and tasted like wet dog. The shrimp was good as usual. When dinner was over, I ordered green tea ice cream, and for the second time in a row (1 month apart), when the waitress returned to our table, I was told there was no more green tea ice cream. I now live in Hemet, and this restaurant is not close to home and I drive a considerable distance to eat at my favorite restaurant only to be very disappointed.

    The food and service was great. The only problem was that I was charged 3 times for my dinner. They had technical difficulties with their system. Asked for a return on my money and said they would return it by the end of the day. A day later and still haven’t received it. Called to speak to a manager and he has yet to call to fix this problem. I didn’t even get the chance to speak to him/her directly.

    Was disappointed having to wait 35 minutes to be seated even with a reservation. However, since we were given our chef of request by the server, it made up for the mistake of the host’s accidentally skipping over us and seating others. Chef Christian is by far the best chef we’ve had there thus far! He was friendly, entertaining, and made our dinner experience excellent!

    I've been to Benihana a few times over the years and I'm sorry to say I won't be going back. Besides the food, the experience is a big draw. However, in both cases, they aren't what they used to be. Some of the food was rather bland (while some of it was very good) and the "show" quality of the chef was lacking. That by itself isn't a deal breaker but for the amount they charge, its a no-go. Over priced, minimal presentation and interaction, and bland food. I'm sorry to say, it was the last time they get my business.

    My son’s graduation started off with our reservation being an hour and a half late to be seated. the food was mediocre because the chef seemed to be rushed, the servers were good, the restaurant was dirty, and the bathroom had no toilet paper. I will never return to this Benihana‘s The chef cross contaminated shrimp and scallops so they had to redo my guest’s order. My guess was allergic to shellfish.

    Was first seated by windows. Very hot. Shade was broken and did not come down. Waiter was gone for very long periods of time without checking on table. Had empty drinks all around at the table and other couple had to ask for rice rice and Appetizer. Had to ask multiple times for same things. Was told out of mushrooms, camera not working for bday picture and was told there were only small to go boxes. When pointed out the other table has large ones he went to the other table and gave to us.

    I got the WORST vodka Collins in the bar. The bartender obviously had no idea what it was. Should have asked for another drink, instead just left it after one sip. The food was wonderful, and well prepared. Our chef, Christian was very outgoing and entertaining. My only suggestion for him is to cut the filet a bit smaller. Just a single bite. With no knife, it was tricky to eat.

    Our cook was terrible, he burned food and on top of that the colossal shrimp was a bit undercooked. to see the show we had to watch the table next to us to get the experience, our cook dropped his spatula and knocked over the rice bowls and the show stopped after that.. he just focused on burning my rice😭to add to the bs they mixed up checks and I had to wait for 3 different checks to get the charges right.. I didn't complain but was very very disappointed.. this was a mother's day gift for my wife from me and the kids and it turned out terrible..
