The wait time to be seated after we already had a reservation was good but we waited about an hour before our cook came out to prepare our food. But, the food was very good,very well cooked. All staff was very nice and friendly.

Upon arrival I was 1 minute after my arrival time. They cancelled my reservation and told me I had to wait 45-1 hour because I missed my time. As I sat and waited, i noticed how everybody else that walked in was being seated. So a member of my party went to check about the wait time and they stated they didn’t have us on the list. So as the hostess/host stood around laughing and side eyeing us I listed to the conversation. They had a FULL conversation about me and how I should be on time for my damn appointment. Then they finally prepare a table for us. The only reason I didn’t stayed was because my daughter wanted to go there for her 7th birthday and I came from Mississippi on spring break.

With reservations @ 6:15, we were not seated until 7ish. That made us late for a concert we had tickets for. The chef was very good and personable, the food was tasty. The server-in-training and the trainer were very nice as well.

When first got there was told that I didn’t have no reservation had to show my email to show I had one the host was very nasty talking. So we was seated about 7:45pm and it took the cook a whole hour and ten minutes to come out. And the people who was seated after us cook came out before ours. And asked to speak to the manger about the situation they kept giving me the run around. I eat at this restaurant on a regular but this visit makes me not want to return.

Chef Hoa was amazing! Very attentive to detail and Friendly. I have been going to Benihana every year for my birthday for as long as I can remember. When it’s packed you can feel kind of rushed, but I booked one of the first appointments in the afternoon on Sunday and the Restaurant was almost empty, so we could enjoy and get to know the Chef. Every experience is better than the next. But Chef Hoa’s experience Will be hard to beat.

My family and I celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday here. We arrived 10min early and were seated at our reservation time. We received our drinks fairly quickly. The restaurant was really busy and the noise level was moderate to high depending on who you ask. We waited about an hour to eat. Our Chef was Chris he was really awesome! His energy and vibe blended very well with our group. Overall we spent about 2.5 to 3hrs here. Chris really made the wait worthwhile we laughed and had a wonderful experience we will definitely be returning soon.

Our chef was pretty good. He did a few tricks and informed us that they can no longer do the tricks that involved big flames. Food was pretty tasty and we had an ample amount. I was very full and still had some to take home.

The bathroom was filthy. I have to say this establishment is a little run down now.

Our waitress was very nice and accommodating but to get everything from drinks, to our check was soooo slow.

Our Chef Black Ninja was pretty funny and the drinks were on point. Our waitress was so beautiful and the red coat manager was super upbeat. Food was good but you have to be careful not to add extra teriyaki to your rice, only meats because it’s super RICH and can cause stomach pains. I had a great time! Thanks y’all

Birthday Celebration for four people. We had a total of 12 people in our party that was able to be seated at one table together. Everyone had an awesome experience together. In fact, the individual who is the 2019 Employee of the Year was our cook. The service that he provided was top notch and beyond anything we've experience before at this location.

Rude staff over the phone that told me no reservations were accepted less than 2 hours out and even if I had called 2 hrs before, they were booked. So that’s how I ended up on opentable. The food was ok I had to wait until the end to eat because I ordered shrimp and one guest had seafood allergies. The chef thought he was the best but the fried rice had no taste despite his “God given” cooking talents.

I came to visit ATL and enjoy my birthday dinner with fiancé and sister from North Carolina. First thing that was poor was the time frame of me waiting almost an hour to be seated. My reservation was at 4:45p and we had to wait another 45 minutes or so to be seated. When we were seated the drink order was taken and it took 20 minutes to just get our drinks. I wanted iced sweet tea and they don’t carry it...what??? When we ordered the food and the waitress said no ranch dressing, just ginger (which was not good), the soup was too salty and came out warm, not hot! Everyone talks how great this place is, my experience was the worst!! I have definitely had better. This location needs more staff and not to take on reservations that can’t even handle. The staff was all over the place and looking confused, not too friendly at all. I would not come back to this location. Please take this review in consideration and make your customers experience much better!!

We where seated promptly. Which is the only positive thing that happened all night. the restaurant was extremely cold. We sat directly in front of the thermostat and watched multiple people adjust it all night. We even met the manager when he came to adjust it and provide an explanation. We waited over an hour before receiving any service. Our server apologized prior to coming back 15 minutes later that she had to cash out her other table. When we finally where severed our beverages our waitress advised she was going to look for our cook at which point we found the manger on our own. He apologized for the lack of service and proceeded to tell us he was in the process or training 20 new chefs and the process takes 8 weeks. No one in my party understood how that related to the lack of service on all levels we received that night. Note the manager never came back to check on us. Fast forward to the chef preparing dinner. No one at our table ordered steamed rice so the chef left us to go and get more rice for fried rice. He also forgot to bring any of our steaks to the table (3) so he left again. The food was good the performance lack luster. Our waitress advised us out of the blue not to tip the chef and hold any tips for the end of the night. We where a party of 7 to celebrate my daughter’s 18th birthday . Our waitress proceeded to tell us that nobody liked her at the restaurant and that she was unable to get anyone to sing Happy Birthday with her that everyone was to busy. However we watched while waiting for food all the other guest received a traditional birthday song tambourine and all. So we just said forget it and sang ourselves. She also never served us an ice cream or asked if we anted any. She hardly checked on us to see if we needed or wanted anything else during the course of dinner. She came back once to ask if we where ready to cut the cake while we where eating once the chef left the table. She did our drink refills then. A terrible experience!
