This specific Benihana location continues on a downward spiral for service, quality our chef didn't arrive until 6:35 which was totally ridiculous (made worse by our waitress telling us at 6:15 (after the table complained) that the chef was on his way SOON)). To make things worst, my wife and I were seated at two wrap around end seats which ended up with us receiving large amounts of grill smoke DIRECTLY into our faces and clothing for the last 15 minutes of our meal. Fellow diners at our table were in disbelief. When complaining to our chef and, afterwards, to the manager (with red eyes and while coughing); NEITHER tried to address the issue or even apologized. My wife does not EVER want to set foot in this particular Benihana EVER AGAIN and I agree...

Even though there’s a pandemic,w and my guest were smushed at a small table 6 other people, and we had to wait over an hour for our chef to come and make our food. I suggest just going anywhere else because it’s not worth it.

The food was dropped more on the floor rather than our plates! The food was under seasoned and the cook had an attitude when we tried to ask for anything!

My experience at this place completely turned me against ever eating at this restaurant. My server was very nice and understanding, my chef was great! And food was fine. But management at this location don't give a crap about their customers... They act as if its a run down hole in the wall thats going out of business. They have a black female manager here that needs to be fired. And they don't follow rules of social distancing.. They sit their customers at back to back tables that are less then six feet away while having plenty of open tables to spread guest out safely. Most of the workers here don't wear mask. Its a very unsafe, rude, unprofessional place to eat at. Would not recommend this location!!!

We celebrated my sons 2020 Grad dinner at Benihana. All while social distancing. The hostess Zhane was very accommodating as I had more plp to join my rsvp last minute. There was another young lady named Meka. She went over & beyond to make our day extra special. Even though we waited 1 hour to be seated, Meka was very attentive and offered kind words while we waited! She is a great addition to your company!!!

Came for my 49th birthday had reservations at 9:30 got seated around 9:25. Drinks were good and so was my food. Only thing was the table was full which sort of made me uncomfortable sitting so close to others. I think the company should continue to adhere to social distancing at habachi tables. Other than that, everything was GREAT!!

We had a reservation for 11 am and waited 15-20 mins. We dine here frequently but this day the cook was super blah, he cooked so fast our chicken wasn't cooked through and had to be put back on. Also burned the eggs and the grill was so smokey we literally smelt like a fire when we left, I've never seen a cloud of smoke coming from the grill like this.

The server was little off and slow. The chef made it an awesome experience, he was very engaged and the food was delicious. I give him a 100. Best chef I’ve had at this Benihana location.

Employees were unprofessional, service was sub par, and the atmosphere wasn’t the best. Employees were just eating their meals out in the open, they were gathering and hanging out with one another around the restaurant and we didn’t get our drinks until after the chef came!

This was my first time at Benihana's. It was an experience I guess, but the food was definitely subpar. Lacked seasoning and flavor. I enjoyed the soup more than everything else. Our server was efficient but not warm at all. She made everything seem rushed and skipped some of our courses. If the kids didn't mention the ice cream, I think she would've skipped that too. I will not be returning.

Reservations on line but called for questions. Person on the phone was very helpful. Courteous Police officer was in parking lot. Greeters and all staff were courteous and provided assistance as required. Social Distancing practices were upheld. Chef did a great job handling each order. Will return.
