The food was good as always. My granddaughter didn't get her white rice and the chef did not put egg in the fried rice. My grandson did not get his sushi appetizer until after we had started our meal, The noise level was almost unbearable.

I expected a better show. The other chiefs did more things. Fried rice was over cooked and crunchy.

Came to Benihana to celebrate for a birthday dinner, Had a reservation at 5pm and was seated at 5:30pm. Upon sitting the waiter was very rude didn’t catch his name as he did not give it and when we asked about certain dishes he was short and condescending throughout the whole time while taking our order. We were all very annoyed as we were really looking forward to being there and enjoying a nice dinner for my birthday. About 45 min or so after being seated the cook finally came out and he made our experience so much better! He was so funny and had us laughing the whole time! My kids kept having dance competitions with the cook! Food was exceptional! Overall had a much much better night due to the cook! Will definitely come back because of his service!

Food was fine but it took more than 30 minutes for the chef to come. A good place to come if you have unlimited time.

The food is so fresh and hot, seasoned to perfection, and served to you immediately in a warm and friendly atmosphere. You can either interact or not with the persons at your table, but we've enjoyed them all in many visits here. It is a bit expensive, so this is a special dinner for us, but it is so worth the cost, which is not high when compared to other good restaurants in the area. My favorite restaurant!

The hostess counter had absolutely no clue what was going on and one hostess was flirting with another employee and asking him out for drinks while the whole lobby was packed full of people... we waited almost 30-45 mins past our reservation time and kept being apologized to for skipping over us and they promised we would be seated next...our waitress and chef were AMAZING and the food was great but the hostesses need some help.

All was great except we had a little kids birthday next to us and the dad let his kids beat on the plates the whole time waiting for the cook. This was not the restaurants fault it was the fault of a dad that was too weak and immature to control his kids.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Benihana’s. Chef wasn’t as engaging as previous chefs, but ok. We ordered our usual Splash and Meadow. The chef was a little heavy on the pepper seasoning and left the steak in long strips, making it a challenge to eat as it did not easily cut with a fork.

The experience and quality of food was definitely not worth the price. Could have made an equally flavored hibachi chicken at home with little cooking experience. As I know part of the price is for the entertainment piece, which was very lacking. Chef did none of the traditional “tricks” and jokes as you expect from a hibachi grill. Very disappointed overall. #yikes #overrated

Strawberry lemonade was fantastic, though :)

We’re there to celebrate my birthday.
Food is good. Service was great. The reservation was easy to be made on the opentable website. The thing I don’t like is the aroma of grill was stuck to my hairs , my cloth! I smelled like a steak!

We had so much fun, great way to spend a birthday evening! The wait was perfect, we made reservations online and were seated at exactly the time of the reservation. The chef was amazing, the performance was fun, funny, and unique. I've been to quite a few Benihana-style restaurants before but our chef definitely gave us the most memorable experience. The food was delicious, it seems pricey but for the experience, quality, and quantity it's well worth it. We live just outside of Seattle so it's a bit of a trek, but next time we're in the area we will definitely be returning.

You need better ventilation, our clothes have never smelled that bad in the past, down to our underwear! Everything had to be thoroughly washed. We went to an event following the lunch and people commented on the smell, all of us stunk terribly!
