I have to say this might have been the meal I've had at benihana's. Ask for Jarvis or JB for your cook. It's like he cooks it the way you would cook it at home. A1

Myself and a couple other diners said the same thing- that Benihana has changed drastically. I always have received melted butter for lobster or scallops melted on the heated cooktop table while the meals are being cooked. I was told that the cook is no longer allowed to put anything on the cooktop. So- I asked for it from the kitchen. Well, that wasn't really supposed to be done, either, as the lobster is cooked with butter. I had to ask numerous times to the melted butter and I finally asked to take home the raw lobster so I could cook it myself, but the cook indicated he had already beeb cooked. By the time I finally received melted butter from the kitchen the lobster was ice cold and it was awful. As the checks were being handed out I asked if the hot tea and ice cream dessert was no longer part of the meal. I did receive the dessert and tea long after I had received my check. I would not have received them had I not specifically asked for it. It was the worst experience I've ever had at Benihana's in the 40+ years that I've been dining at Benihana's. I think that was my last visit there. I'll find another similar restaurant that knows how to treat their customers as though they are respected and valuable.

We enjoyed our meal, all the servers, and our chef. The hibachi itself was good but I liked the sushi more.

This experience was absolutely horrible! Never visiting again. Had a reservation a 1 and didn't leave until 3. The manager was very unapologetic stating that beginning to cook the food at 1:45 for a 1pm appointment was normal. No one turned the grill on so the food took extra long to cook because it wasn't hot. This was a lunch date which made me late getting back to work.

The staff was very pushy about my whole party not there on time. It was only a few people in the restaurant and I’m not sure why we weren’t just able to sit in the sitting area and wait. However, my brother eventually showed up, and we enjoyed ourselves. The chef was amazing and friendly. The food was fabulous.

I visit this location wuite often. Everytime is a different experience both good and bad. I would highly recommend booking a reservation. This was the first time that I did and it went much smoother than any time prior. They have insane wait times if you just walk in with no reservation!

I go to this Benihana quite often and have never had a bad experience. We opted for a regular table tonight because we had a lot of catching up to do. Our wait person was Brittany and she was great, very attentive, and friendly.
