So this was by far thee best experience I have had at any Benihana location. Our chef was fantastic and made the dining experience that much more enjoyable. Not sure if you can but I would request to sit as his ‘table’ whenever I return! Our food was delicious and all the wait staff were very friendly as well!

Although you have reservations you will probably be waiting 45 minutes before you sit down. I feel as if they can call to confirm they should call to let you know you won’t be seated during your reservation time

We got seated an hour after our reservation which is totally unacceptable and they didn’t offer kind recourse. Customer Service has totally went down the drain. I love Benihana food but it had went down tremendously. The chef JoJo was the best part of the experience.

reservation was for 9:30 pm got seated around 10:10pm server came 15mis later took the tables order brought out alcohol drinks, cool. Next cook came out and didn't have enough on tray to complete everyones order at table had to keep sending to the back for more sauce more meat more rice etc.... Next we all ad food but no eating utensils has to request twice tip finally the cook went to go get them and then the server appeared finally with napkins and silverware by then we were ready to order another drink but bar was closed I glanced at clock it was 12am. we asked for a manger he listened to our concerns and did not speak an opinion so the lady next to me was like are we getting a discount and his reply was oh you must knew i was gone give y'all one. Not the answer we was looking for. So by then the server has checks and it had $8 off meal , which could have made since if we still would have gotten all the items from our dinner , I ordered the yokisada which i paid $5 extra for fried rice , never got my salad soup was not hot, nor did we get the green tea that came with meal nor the ice cream. And the fact it was my birthday..... doesn't make it any better. Should have just chose a different restaurant with better service.

We came for a friends birthday. We had a 9:45 reservation. We weren’t seated until 10:20. The hostess sat us and appeared extremely annoyed. He did take our drink orders. After about 20 mins our waitress finally arrived. Brittany was polite and sweet. However she was overwhelmed. Drink orders were wrong. Salads came out with wrong dressing, but that’s was ok. She took our orders and we waited for our cook. A plate was dirty, so asked for another plate. Never received it. By this time it is now well after 11. People that came in after us were seated, and eating. Our cook came to our table at 11:30. He had to go back several times for more meat. He was constantly looking at other tables, not focused on preparing meal. We didn’t get our food until almost 12:30am, the cook did notice someone was without a plate and got one for us but… by this time everyone simply asked for to go boxes because of ridiculous time. We finally received our checks after asking waiter several times. For the price of the food, the experience was not worth the money. We left at 12:50am…unsatisfied.

After waiting a few extra minutes, we were seated with 5 others at the table. The server, Ace, was extremely friendly and made our evening enjoyable.
Our chef Jojo prepared the hibachi perfectly, making sure none of us had any allergies, and carefully serving us only what we had requested. Between the fun company at our table, the service, and the tasty food, it was a great dinner.

Where to begin. I understand that ever plae is short staffed, but there were three hostesses who seemed to be doing nothing and yet it took 45 minutes to order cocktails and another 30 minutes to serve them. We spent over three hours there total and didn't see any food until the 1:45 mark. The dining room could use a bit of updating. All of the staff were pleasant but they seemed to not really be familiar with the menu. Honestly, one of the wierdest restaurant experiences that I have had in a while.

Not in any hurry to go back.
