Overall the service was okay the only problem that I had was the reservation they made us wait 25 minutes to get seated you say at a 8:15 p.m. reservation you shouldn't have to wait 25 minutes after the fact to be seated

Our experience was 2.5 hours. The cook took 20 minutes to cook and we only ate for about 10 minutes. We waited so long for the table despite the reservation and then we waited forever for a cook. I timed it. We were there for 2.5 hours but we only watched the cook and ate for 30 min. We waited for 2 hours. Horrible experience I'm not going back. The waitress took 15 min to get our check and even longer to bring it back to us. I also had dirty silverware. Don't go. You'll do yourself a favor.

The waiter was horrible and the wait was horrible. Made reservations and still waited as if we didn’t. My dad ordered a drink and the tables who were sat after us received his before we decided to finally say something after it being 2 hours that he didn’t want the drink anymore. 5 minutes later she came back with an excuse and the rest of the guest at the table begin to become upset as well. Two Luther guest went to get their own to go bags and left. They paid cash because it took forever for her to come back with the receipts and didn’t want to wait any longer. The chief was amazing and he understood our frustration and stated he was sorry and the waitress was wrong. Manager never came to speak with us about the issue. I was highly disappointed.

I ordered a drink .. never got it.
Soup was COLD, salad was served with 3 chuncky pieces of lettuce and was soggy. The cook only used salt and pepper for EVERYTHING nothing else. The table didn’t receive the usual yum yum and ginger sauce. It was an absolute horribly experience. I am from Los Angeles and have never experienced such a distasteful experience at Benihana’s. I am extremely upset that there were no accommodations offered. This location was a mess and lacked the true brand and taste of the Benihana chain.

Food was excellent, I cannot complain about that. However the service was lacking. The servers themselves were nice and provided a show but you can tell it was short staffed and crowded. I arrived early at 7:26 pm for a 8 pm reservation and did not get seated until 9 pm. Our meal show got started around 9:30 pm and we finally got our bill after 10:15 pm and payment processed by 10:37 pm. I live near Fayetteville and this was a drive for me during a weekday. I managed to make it home less than an hour later due to decreased traffic but getting up for work was hard the next day. Next time, we will try the other location on a weekend even though it is further away. I thought we would get better service and less people on a Monday nut I guess I was wrong.

First we placed to go orders with our server and was not told we needed to order these at the to go stand. Our meal ended about 10. At this point we were told to pick up our orders at to go. I was rudely interrupted by another server who threw her hand up and said the kitchen was closed and too bad. Without even listening to my questions or giving me an explanation as to why our orders weren’t placed. Over all Leonardo our chef was perfect !! He made our dinner enjoyable. I think the servers need to explain the to go order process at the beginning of service instead of taking our to go orders and nothin was placed.

Staff was friendly but the quality of the food was not good at all. My rice was crispy???? And I’m not sure if that’s because it was undercooked or over. It didn’t have much flavor or any of the standard things in the rice that most Japanese establishments serve 😂😂😂even the frozen food Benihana rice has peas carrots onions and zucchini’s! So I was highly confused.
But the chef was somewhat entertaining.
Idk, Benihana just isn’t what it used to be!

Made my reservation and in doing so saw that I was expected there on time or early as they assure seating within 15 minutes of reservation. They even called me that morning to confirm. Was seated over 30 minutes after reservation and chef did not start cooking until an hour after reservation time. This location never has enough servers and/or chefs - and that has been true even before Covid hit! Sadly I have been coming for over 17 years and this restaurant has gone downhill so fast it isn’t funny.

I’m not sure why reservations are made. We still waited a half hour to be seated and another hour for the chef to start. Plus people without reservations were seated first because they “knew” an employee. Won’t be back to this one.

Waitress would leave table for long periods of times and would forget to refill drinks in appropriate amount of time. Didn’t even receive any soup at first until the manager came by later on or hot tea at end. Our reservation was at 630 and we ended up being at restaurant for 3 hours. Never had an experience like this ever at Benihana’s. Chef Chris was amazing!!! He literally made up for all the madness and slack we experienced/received the first half of our meal.

had to wait 20 mins to get seated then 15 mins on a server and another 15 minutes to get a watered down drink not to mention a 20 min wait to get a chef. I ordered an appetizer was cold when I got it..my wife and I had to get up and move our food numerous times due to the water dripping from the AC vent, the manager had a contraption used to wipe the water off.. but the the chef finally arrived and did a great job, the food was very good.
