Loved this location and our cook. Our cooks skills with his knife were the best I have seen. Food was excellent and pricing very good for the quality. They should consider Vancouver WA for a location .

Too cold; despite seated all the way in the back, the din of roaring ventilators made conversation difficult.

The only negative I will say about our experience is that we arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and checked in. The guy at the host booth told us he has us checked in and it will be about 15 minutes until we are seated. 30 minutes go by and I go back and ask whats going on since people who arrived after us have been seated. this time, I speak to a different person while the guy who supposedly checked us in was standing off to the side. She tells me I was never checked in and was then hurriedly seated. The guy who I spoke to at first, during our first interaction seemed very smug, and had the air of thinking he is better then everybody else there.

The food was amazing, Malik, our chef was funny, welcoming and very skillful in his show. He paid extra special attention to the 2 young children who were there with their family. High praise to Malik and everything he did!

It is a little spendy, but the food was great and we enjoyed the chef show. Only downside, we had a 630 reservation and didn't get seated until 7. And this place is LOUD and sort of frantic, it was fine for us, but may be an issue for other diners looking for a more relaxing experience.

We have come to Benihana every year on our birthdays and appreciate the gift certificate we use. I’m not sure what happened this year.. we were seated right away with another family. The mom in that party was celebrating her bday as was my husband. The chef was great, food delicious! We had to ask for water and refill of ice tea. The server didn’t come back more than once to check.. they asked if we were done and wanted boxes while we were still eating! Felt very rushed... I’ve cream can’t with candle.. that was good. We never saw anyone come for a photograph.. and the group we were with might not even have known they could have had a picture! It was not a very good experience.. I’m sorry to say. Perhaps that night was short staffed? Newer employees? Whatever it was did not feel like the same Benihana we knew....

Made a reservation 2 months in advance and still had to wait 25 minutes past my reserved time to be seated. Hostess was extremely evasive and non informative. On the other hand, our order-taker and chef were excellent. Friendly, courteous, thorough, seeing to all our needs. The food was good, but nothing extraordinary.

The lunch served was wonderful and at such a reasonable price that we opted to order cocktails! It's a bit noisy but ok so don't change it as it's better than a restaraunt that's too quiet. Dijon our host has such funny wit that he made our birthday celebration memorable.
Thanks Dijon!!

the only reason service was a lower star is it took an hour to get our dinner started, but the people themselves were awesome!!! all of them. of course it is expensive, but it does come with a show! just the time to get the table after our reservations and then get the cook out was so long, we almost left...

Celebrated my birthday a few days ago - a great time was had by all. The staff were friendly, funny, and had their jobs down pat. The "entertainment" by the cook was good, and the food was at least 4-star, judging on a pretty harsh scale. I mean, terrific fresh ingredients cooked perfectly right in front of you - no exotic recipes, no trendy concoctions - but beautifully prepared delicious food, first quality. That's what I call 4-star. I've been to Benihana's on and off for decades - and we'll be sure to return for the fun and quality dining experience. I'll also point out that because of the fixed courses of appetizers - it is actually a pretty good value as restaurants go. Enjoy!

Food was great, very accommodating with our food allergies. Chef skills were good and somewhat entertaining but definitely not the best. My wife and I each ordered a 6 course meal, one of which we had to ask for and one we never got. Restaurant wasn't super busy but probably in between shifts.

Our chef was horrible. Burnt, salty, dry food. Splashed a kid in the eye with hot grease. At the end our table looked as if a two yea old sat there and ate. Foot everywhere. We won’t be ever eating there again.

I would only recommend this place because it is fun to have the food prepped in front of you but it was really over priced and I still had to order a plate of sushi to fill up. The chef and staff were excellent, just a bit underwhelmed by prices and portions for my colossal shrimp I ordered.

I love their food ! It’s hot and delicious and you can eat it as soon as it’s cooked right in front of you. However, the chefs in recent years have been less focused on the “entertainment “ or “show” of the food preparation than my experiences in the past. I miss the emphasis on the showy displays, fun tricks, and banter with the customers. Why else would you come here when you can go to any other Japanese restaurant?

This is our fourth year coming to Benihana’s as a tradition for my sons birthday. The first year was awesome, delicious, fun and great. The last 3 years have progressively gotten worse each time. This last time I think the chef was high. You could tell he just didn’t care. The food was being slopped around. Rice was going everywhere. He was cutting up the food so badly it wasn’t cut in straight lines. He was doing a hack job on it all. If Benihana’s doesn’t fully vet their chefs then that’s really crappy of them. They should make the chefs cook in front of the senior ones. This guy couldn’t catch a shrimp in his hat, he wasn’t interacting with the kids. The food tasted terrible. Really disappointed and probably won’t go back.
