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.

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 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.

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.

Our server was Sophie and our chef was Dustin. He was the best chef we have ever had at Benihana. Great sense of humor and made us all laugh at the table. Sophie did an amazing job with taking care of us as well. Our drinks never got empty. The whole experience was fantastic. One of most enjoyable experiences at Benihana.

It took over an hour just from sitting down to the chef coming out to prepare the food... they also sat us a awfully close to another group. It did not seem Covid safe. And this location doesn’t have yum yum sauce either which was very disappointing

Had a birthday and celebrated late after 9pm, servers were switching constantly, they missed our birthday note, waited near 1.5 hours for a chef. Did not do the whole experience and was rushed due to closing time. Waited long periods for drinks and appetizers from the back kitchen as well

Our booking was at 6:30pm. We were seated at 7pm. The chef was at our table at 8pm. The other tables were served first before us even tho we were there earlier than them. Food wise is on the salty side but good. They said they didn’t have enough chef to accommodate their guests.

The experience is what you go for for sure, the food was honestly pretty disappointing. We added scallops to our meal and got extremely small over cooked scallops. Also the chicken said spicy and definitely wasn't. Our server was very nice, however was pretty absent. For the price I'd probably go elsewhere.
