    STAY AWAY!! 30 mins after our reservation to get seated. 45 mins to get water at our table. Longer to get drinks. Food was very mediocre. Rocky Aoki would be ashamed. Lack of experienced management. Don’t even think of eating here.

    Made 12:30 reservations, did not get a chef to our table until 145. Unacceptable. However the chef Malachi made our wait a little better because he cooked our food to perfection. But other than that having to wait an hour after your reservation for a chef is not good at all. Reservations should be made according to chef availability/wait time etc.

    Horrible. Waited an 45 mins to be seated for a 4:15pm reservation. Then another hour before our chef got to the table. Our waitress was very nice but the food was all burned. The worst Benihana location we have ever been to.

    Haven’t been to Benihana in forever. This visit was Ok and I’ll probably add them back into my restaurant rotation 😀. The Chef (John) was great. Pleasant and seasoned food well. Service was “Ok”. Went during non-peak time (2:45) and server could have been a little more attentive. Was surprised that you have to ask for a basic like soy sauce. Why is it not a b the table?? 🤦🏾‍♀️. All in all it was a decent visit.

    Our reservation was for 8:00 we didn’t sit down until 9:45-10:00. Then we felt rushed. Food was cooked very fast and waiter came with 1 round of drink never came back. I had to send someone to find her for another drink.

    Hadn't been in a while and figured it was best to go earlier than wait until the middle of lunch hour. Got there for an 11:45 reservation and although we were seated, didn't get our drinks until 12:30. Have to admit that although there were all kinds of food restrictions at our table, the chef was able to quickly cook the food to satisfaction. Since I only have an hour for lunch, I knew it would be longer but was not expecting it to go so long since the restaurant surprisingly only had two tables. The costs of everything has gone up. Most people are going to get the chicken fried rice and not get regular sticky white rice. Price has really gone up. With the increases, birthday coupons really don't have the value they once did since you have to spend an additional $30 in food. Two people can't get out of there now without spending close to $100 even with the coupon. Although the food is excellent, my visits will probably be very limited going forward.

    Our family celebrated our daughters 13th birthday at the Midtown/Buckhead location where I for the first time ever, had the worst experience in my hibachi dining history (and we eat hibachi a lot) After waiting 45 minutes to be seated after while having a reservation, it took 2 full hours before we actually had a chef come to our station. After being so famished, we ask that he just simply cook with no show which our whole table agreed (guest who were not apart of my party but also celebrating a birthday). Though we loved “The Champs” show from completely across the restaurant, he was entirely to loud and began cooking an hour before our chef and our chef still beat him in completion. Love the enthusiasm, however the entire restaurant seemed annoyed in their private conversations and parties. I saw at least 5 different families leave due to excessive wait times but that was all just an experience they left me behooved. Hoping this gets better as a household food chain to many families across the nation.

    Awful awful experience. Got a 7:15 reservation for my sons birthday. Showed up at 7:05, was sat at 7:15. We sat at the table for FORTY FIVE MINUTES before water was even brought. It took another thirty minutes before our drinks (bottled beer) made it. Finally at about the 2 hour mark we told them to cancel our order and paid for our drinks before leaving. The family seated with us was also celebrating a birthday and tried leaving too, but somehow the server convinced them to stay. I should have read the reviews before coming and wasting the entire evening of my sons birthday. Never again.

    We arrived and was seated quickly. To our good fortune we was served by what I feel the best Chef Benihana have. “The Champ is here” he made our dining experience memorable. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and he couldn’t stop talking about how he loved the evening. We will definitely return

    Waited 30-45 minutes to get seated even though we had reservations and it took an hour afterwards just for the chef to come out and cook, would not recommend unless you’re ok with waiting 2 hours to eat because that’s how long it took to eat after arriving.

    Our party arrived on time for our reservation which was made for 4:30pm......the front desk host stated that there would be a 35 minute wait and we would be seated according (no apology.) Well, 35 minutes turned into an hour. Not happy. Our name is called (yelled out in the waiting area) and then the hostess attempts to squeeze 6 'grown' people at a table that already had 5 people. The look on my face was enough for her to know we were not going to do that.....I mean, really? We have just waited over an hour and now you want to crowd us at a table? I think not. So the front desk host seats us at an empty table. It took almost 4 hours from arrival to our meal completion. The only saving grace was that our server and chef were great and the food was delicious!!! Why give your guests the opportunity to make a reservation when the time is not honored? That needs to be addressed....and please purchase portable restaurant pagers (Houston's) and/or utilize a text message system (ex. Yard House) for you guests to be notified as opposed to your host/hostess yelling through out the waiting area...really? For the amount of money your establishment charges some improvements are necessary to keep guests coming back.

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to a Benihana. This one was clearly in a significant decline. They were 1.5 hours behind reservation schedules at 5:00 pm. They clearly were in disarray. Apparently had little idea how to handle the situation. I will never go back to this Benihana. It’s unfortunate. It used to be a great experience. Now, not so much.
