Service at the bar was not very friendly got the impression that maybe it was a trainee or newbie..
Our waitress and cook were outstanding!!
As far as the food my lettuce on my salad was wilted and warm. The shrimp appetizer was undercooked with no flavor. And my scallops were tough and again not the best flavor
We got there about 1 hour early and had to wait until 20 mon past the reservation time, when we get to the tale that they said they didn't have because i request NO KIDS it was already a couple seated at the table and had been there long enough to order cocktails! My first time at this location and will be LAST!
Great food, service and staff. Very accommodating and friendly.
Everyone was really friendly
Everithing was great nice people very nice place
It was nice to finally go out to dinner! We celebrated Mother's Day and it was wonderful. We had our own family table. Great food and service!
NEVER FAILS TO DISAPPOINT ME. THE FOOD IS AMAZING, AND CHEF WAS ACTIVE GREAT EXPERIENCE ONCE AGAIN :)
If you like great food, drinks and seeing your food prepared and cooked in front of you. You can never go wrong celebrating at Benihana.
There’re are no words to express how Wonderful our Server Alex and Chef Dustin were! We dine here often; since 1992. Never have we had a meal that was seasoned; prepared; cooked and tasted perfect! Not one piece of burned anything!Dustin is a Perfectionist.
As Alex; we barely drank our drinks and he was back filling them. His smile was infectious and Nice; You can only imagine!! Those are the 2 best hires since Happy; way back when!
Can’t wait to go again and pray we get Alex and Dustin!
They deserve Recognition!!!
It is a great place for families first dates and celebrating any occasion
Had a 6pm reservation. Was told to wait outside. Others had reservations yet were allowed to stand inside. Didn’t get seated until 630. Cook was not entertaining. Very quiet just cooked and left didn’t even ask if we had enough sauces or anything before he left. Place wasn’t even that busy. I have eaten here many times when all tables were full and had better service.
We celebrated my son birthday on Tuesday 5/4. Every time we visit Benihana we always get the birthday song ... but for some reason, our waiter did not sing to my son. I was a bit disappointed with DIana . I was hoping she was going to sing to him but she did not. I was not happy with that ! I was disappointed !
We met some friends from our of state for dinner and had an amazing time! Our server Diana was awesome and so attentive!! Our cook Kevin made our food so good and had us laughing and enjoying ourselves so much! Thanks for a wonderful meal and service!!
Check was great !!! Food was tasty!
My reservation was at 115. I arrived on time to be told I was going to wait another 10 min be seated. Didn’t get seated till about 135. Once I got seated didn’t get to eat till about an hour after that because of lack of personnel.
I love the waitress she was so nice and chief was amazing
Was seated 30 minutes after our reservation. During dining it took a while to get our appetizer and even longer to receive an order of white rice.
They lack of chefs due to COVID. Some chefs left understandably due to slow business in 2020. This resulted in lacking of chefs. Aside from appetizers of soup and salad, I have to wait almost an hour to get the chef come to our table and serve. Disappointed with the waiting period. Not to mention that this is happening from 1-2pm where lunch time is way overdue
The sushi had been sitting so long and it was ordered as a appetizer. We did not receive it until the food was served and finished.
We always come here to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our favorite place to go.
Food is always great and the drinks too!
Thank you for a fun dining experience... my 9 year old granddaughter wants to go back soon!
The server (an older Asian lady) took my Mother’s order wrong, more than one mistake, and had to be sought out a few times, and wasn’t around much. She didn’t bring my granddaughter’s and my rice till the end of the meal (we had to ask). The ice cream for my birthday wasn’t special, like it usually is. She didn’t sing happy birthday to me, no pictures of us, which is the most important part to me, of this yearly visit. The chef was wonderful, we really enjoyed his efforts. The manager was also helpful. I didn’t discuss my unhappiness with him, because my elderly Mother was tired and needed to leave. Even the girls at the front desk disappointed, on 2 counts: when we got there, ahead of our reservation time, they made us wait outside in the heat, because the lounge was full, but we sat out there for an hour, there must have been room in there during that time. And it wasn’t easy for my elderly Mother to sit out there all that time. And, as we were leaving, I told them we hadn’t had out picture, and asked them to please do it there, they heard my Mother say she couldn’t walk all the way back to our table, and they insisted they wouldn’t do it. Would it have been so difficult?
Anyway, I usually totally enjoy my visits to Benihana, but this birthday celebration was a disappointment.
Excellent restaurant to celebrate any celebration We the whole family very nice service
The service and food were excellent!! I can't wait to go back.
It was great!! Nice birthday dinner with my girlfriend for my birthday. Braxton was a great cook had some killer techniques and handles with the rice bowels. Our server was kind and sweet and checked up on us. Overall 10 out of 10! Also, edamame was bomb I recommend.
It is a fun family activity especially for kids and for adults
We tried to support our local and our family went here in April 25 for my daughter's 16th birthday. My mother-in-law had never been here before and she was so amused. We all had a GREAT time. Thank you Benihana and all the staffs for your services during this pandemic time.
Service was amazing and our cook was fantastic always a good time and always delicious food
Bug on our grill...
FOr some reason, the show was lacking a lot this trip. We love Benihana for the food, atmosphere and for the "show" that the different cooks put on. On this trip, the only "show" thing that our cook did was create a heart with the rice and show it beating and the volcano. There was no tossing of the egg shells or shrimp tails into his hat, or showmanship with his knife or spatula. The food was great, don't get me wrong, but we had taken two people from out of town and we had hyped up the show and to only see a beating heart and an onion with flames was really disappointing. Maybe the cooks do not care about the shows in the early afternoon, but we did not order off of the lunch menu. We all had the Rocky's Choice - our favorite for years. I just wish this trip lived up to the memory of trips pre-pandemic. Quite disappointed.
Extremely rude manager that judges women’s clothing.
Excellent food & service - spacing was ideal and atmosphere was very appealing
Great fun and delicious food at Benihana as always! So glad to interact with the chef and the service staff was impeccable.
The food portion was very very small and the chef wasn’t good at all.
Our chef was a lot of fun. Benihana is affordable when you use the birthday coupon.
Great server and cook. Been going for year's but this time was a little over the top.
Our chef just flopped the food on top of each other on our plate.
Our first time there was exactly how we imagined. We Will definitely be going back soon
Dustin, our chef was awesome and very entertaining. The food was delicious. I took my son, my 2 daughters and my sister for my sons birthday and it was a great time. Definitely revisit this place again
