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!

We made reservations for 7pm. We got there at 645pm. Went to check in and “your reservation has passed, you WILL have to wait til 8:15” exclaimed the attendant in a rather inconsiderate tone. It is 645pm ma’m , I said. Oh ok, well you Will have to wait for a bit. At 7:15pm, we had still not been seated so I returned to the concierge desk and the same waiter told me that we Will have to wait as there were reservations ahead of us that hadn’t been seated. How this is my problem, I have no clue. Instead of “Can yoy please bear with us?”, the “You will have to “ was very disturbing..... We eventually got seated around 730 after my repeated visits to the desk. This attendant has no customer service skills and if it was my establishment, she will be reprimanded.
After we got seated, everything went well as expected.
Thank you.

Hello,

My sister and I absolutely love this Benihana location. However this time the service and the chef was great but our stomachs began to hurt immediately upon leaving. We both had shrimp hibachi and we aren’t too sure what the issue was but we both experienced stomach aches. I’m not sure if it was a way the food was stored or what may have happened. Nonetheless, we will return. 😄

I absolutely love Benihana, but I would never recommend this particular location to anyone unless they want mediocre food and poor customer service. This location has a rude manager that is uneducated and has no customer service skills. Cynthia refused to take accountability for staffs mishaps and thought it was ok to ruin a customer's experience. I Will NEVER return to this location EVER!!!!

Had a second wonderful experience at Benihana. Hint- if you've never tried their mustard sauce, ask for it. It's not regularly served, but is divine! Great chef again- Steve this time. There are a few I wat hed that dont have the skills but he and "Blackie Chan" (his choice of name, not mine) are excellent! Food prepared safe, and cooked to perfection. Steak and chicken guaranteed food for the next day. Shrimp appetizers are great as well.

7pm RESERVATIONS AND WE ARRIVED 15min EARLY. OF COURSE WE HAD TO WAIT A FEW MOMENTS AND THAT WAS EXPECTED, BUT WE WERE PROMPTLY SEATED AT 7pm. OUR WAITRESS WAS PHENOMENAL (she was high energy but not over the top) GREAT PERSONALITY, VERY ATTENTIVE & GVAE GREAT RECOMMENDATIONS. OUR CHEF WAS GREAT AND THOUGH THEIR WAS ONE KID AT THE HIBACHI TABLE, THE CHEF DIDNT MAKE THE EXPERIENCE CHILDISH. MY ONLY ISSUE IS MY HUSBAND ORDERED THE MOST EXPENSIVE DISH AT THE TABLE (im very attentive to my surroundings and i have “mom ears” so i hear everything) BUT RECEIVED THE SMALLEST AMOUNT OF FOOD. AND NO I DIDNT MEAN THE MOST EXPENSIVE ON THE MENU BUT THE MOST EXPENSIVE AT THE TABLE. IT WAS HIS FIRST TIME HERE BUT NOT MINE SO I KNOW WHAT AMOUNT OF FOOD IS USUALLY SERVED FOR THAT PARTICULAR DISH (Benihana Trio) HE RECEIVED 3 COLOSSAL SHRIMP, A FIST FULL OF FILET MIGNON AND A FIST FULL OF CHICKEN. I WAS UPSET BUT I REFUSED TO RUIN MY HUSBANDS BIRTHDAY DINNER. I JUST TOLD HIM THAT THE NEXT TIME WE COME BACK WE WILL SIT AT OUR OWN PRIVATE TABLE AND HAVE THE ACTUAL DISH BROUGHT TO US. ALL IN ALL THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS BUT THE AMOUNT WAS INCORRECT.

The food took 3.5 hours after being seated. The waitress didn't get the orders correct. The chefs foods wasn't prep, so he cook. The hibachi grill was not turn when the chef came out to cook, he couldn't find the waitress.THE CHEF had to run to kitchen at least 5 times, and also go wonder around for bowls to serve rice. The waitress never refilled no ones glasses & never received my appetizers. I had to walk to the bar to get my own refill and paper napkins. Then at the everyone's check was wrong. Horrible...Go to the Alpharetta location only
