The food was delicious. The service was ok, nothing special. Every dirty plate remained on the table until dessert was served and even after we paid. Yuck. The chef was nice but didn't add any excitement to our meal. We were hoping to see the tricks and fun that usually accompany dinner, especially since it was our 3 and 12 year old's first visit, but our chef was very subdued. Maybe we'll have better luck next time...

Our family took us out to Benihana’s for dinner before we left town, and the service was awful. It took the server 30 minutes to bring us our drinks , which were melted by the time we got them, we ordered 3 appetizers and only received 1 out of the 3 appetizers . We made our reservation for 9:15 , they didn’t start cooking until 10:30 and was rushing so they didn’t perform the tricks they normally do . We spoke to a manager who said she would take care of the drinks and appetizers for us , then recanted her statement and would only take care of the appetizers. Once we got our food , we took two bites and the server was already trying to give us boxes . Our family was a loyal customer , and due to this experience we will never go back to this restaurant. Drive the extra miles to go to another Benihana’s !!

Once we had walked in the hostess didn’t have our reservation on file until we showed them it on my phone they were very nice and persistent on trying to find our reservation. The food was amazing this was my first time ever to Benihana. The server in the beginning was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed from start to finish even while our chef was cooking for us our server was still coming around asking if we needed anything else meanwhile our food was being prepared. Overall would definitely go again

If doing Dinner 5:00 pm is the perfect time. You will be in and out in about 1 hour. After 5:30 the place is a zoo.

Our reservation was for 11 AM and we did not eat until 1145. We were told the chef was taking his time and the waitress will try to get him to hurry. Benny the chef was rude and I will never go back.

The chef was entertaining. Ordered the New York strip medium rare. The steak was tough and had no flavor. I won’t be trying Benihana’s again, unfortunately. I’ll stick with Hibachi in Anaheim.

We’ve been here a few times. It’s one of our favorites. This occasion we had come for lunch. Danial was our chef. He did an excellent job. Angelica was our server. She was amazing. She went above and beyond. This was probably one of my best experiences at this Benihana’s. If it would been my first time i defiantly come back just because of both of them.

Our particular chef overall was good, not great. His skills and showmanship were on the low side. He salted things too heavily and I’ve never had that previously. My lobster was a bit overdone. He tried to give me my filet mignon while it was still rare, but I caught him before he did. Then it was a perfect med-rare. The server was very good. While I do recommend, the only time I go is in my birthday month when I have the $30 off certificate.
