Benihana - Atlanta - Buckhead Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
My visit to Benihana's last night was my worse experience ever at this Buckhead location. From being seated at the table, to the wait staff, to the food served was the worse. I could go into great detail about my horrible experience but it would be a waste of my time and energy. I'll just leave you with, do not visit this location if you want good service and good food. A total waste of time and money. HORRIBLE!!!!
I love Benihana. I would never turn down the opportunity to eat there. That being said, this visit was very unusual and not like the norm. We had a reservation for 6:00 and we were seated around 6:10. Ordered our drinks around 6:20 and didn't receive these drinks until 7:00! We were told that the bartender was backed up. We couldn't see how because there weren't that many people that ordered drinks and the bar area was empty!!!! The chef was great and the food was terrific. The waitress hadn't offered us sauces and when our rice was done, we had to request it. We also had two birthdays at the table. When we were done with our food, the waitress came over with three bowls of vanilla ice cream covered with chocolate sauce, handed one to each of the birthday people and then asked who else wanted ice cream and handed the extra one out. Everyone at the table was supposed to get ice cream or sherbet based upon their orders and we had to ask for it. Not to mention that the birthday people didn't even want chocolate syrup on their ice cream. Overall, our waitress was horrible. She was slow, forgetful and didn't explain anything during our meal. Luckily, I told my chef I was allergic to shellfish because she sure didn't ask if there were any allergies at the table.
The restaurant was very dirty. The grill was dirty the bathroom was dirty. Ask for some sauce they said they did not have any clean dishes. There was no show when the cook was cooking. The server put about $90.00 to much on our bill took awhile to get it straighten out. Will not be back. Very disappointed!!!
Wwaited 3 hours to be seated and another 45 minutes after we were seated for the cook to come to the table got there at 8:30pm when the cook finished had to get everything to go because it was sp late. didnt leave till 1:30. pretty dissapointed in my visit.
