We had a newer chef, and he was very passive aggressive with his jokes. We would have been able to look past that if the food was well made. Both of our steaks, seafood, and even veggi's were not cooked, nor seasoned like they usually are. We are frequent customers, and really aren't picky, BUT had to write a review since his entire demeanor, and the experience was poopy. Hopefully we'll have better luck next time!

Let’s get the bad out of the way. Not sure if they had a sushi chief in training that night but the shushi rolled we ordered was blah “I’ve had better from the local grocery stores” tasteless and falling apart. On a good note they didn’t charge us for it so that was nice. Everything else we had was amazing. The fillet mignon was off the charts silky smooth and melted in your mouth mmmmm. We had two types of steak both great and a few different types of shrimp. I don’t like sea food and theses were awesome. A bit pricey and a bit of a wait but totally worth it.

Food was great! Kayzee was a wonderful cook and did some things that I hadn’t seen in my many years of frequenting a Benihana. The waiter got overwhelmed which ended with empty glasses on our table. It’s bad when the cook has to summon a waiter to fill drinks at his table.

Great food and chef. Wait staff was a little nonexistent during most of the dinner.

Never disappointed when I go there. The food was great and my group spent our time chuckling over the jokes and comments. Service was great as well.

This is not my first time here, but this go around the food was really bland, and our server (not the chef) forgot our appetizer, kids drinks, rice, desert, and to-go boxes. Seemed a bit rediculus to pay the prices we did for such lack in service.

Servers shouldn't have to run the credit cards...waited at the front desk for almost ten minutes while my server finally got to it...meanwhile front desk staff of four stood around bs-ing in front of me...I hope the servers are paid well with taking orders..setting up tables...bussing tables serving AND running back to take payments....and front desk (over) staff just standing around.
