Not what it used to be. Portion size is much smaller and prices continue to increase. We had a very green chef, not a all entertaining and food was either undercooked, veggies or overcooked, chicken and shrimp. Used to enjoy a night at Benihana's but not sure I'd go back.

We actually received good service but the food was not flavorful enough and it took too long to get each item that was ordered you were either done with the first one or it was cold before the next item came other than that issue with the food the restaurant was clean and like I said but before we had really good service

Great food as always! If you have a food allergy as I do remember to not only tell your server but the person preparing the food as well. Sometimes get miscommunicated.

What a fun experience. Our server did a great job but the fun part is the Chef. Fancy handwork with the cooking utensils, jokes, pleasant conversation all while preparing our meal. Sadly it was so loud in the restaurant that we missed some of what the chef said.

It was good until when I pay with my credit card. I gave my credit card to waitresses and she lost my credit card between our table to cashier. They never said anything until I asked it. Manager came to tell me that she lost my credit card. I never experienced the restaurant would lost the customer credit card. How sloppy job! They charged us half price of the food but still it was too much to process to lost card prices with bank and other things. I was very very disappointed about it.

The service was slow, after you place your order, you wait for your chef to arrive.
The food was too salty and too much butter (told the chef to go easy as we had two 8 year-olds), you smell horrible after the meal and the food was WAY too overpriced.

We were lucky to have Christopher as our chef who put on a great show for our 6 year old grandson’s first trip to Benihana. Food was good, server was good, very noisy but that’s Benihana.

Went to Benihana for lunch. The food was good, as always and the "standard" chef performance and food games were, as always, fun to watch and enjoy. The food was done to order and tasty. The only challenge is of course to avoid cooking meat and seafood at the same time on the grill, which means if someone orders seafood any steak/meat dishes are prepared last. Nonetheless, an enjoyable experience.

We were at a table where the grill kept turning off. So it was kinda frustrating. Amy was a trooper she kept putting it back on every 5 minutes.we should have been moved to a working grill cause the problem didn’t give us time to enjoy Amy And our picture was taken and of course they couldn’t print it wasn’t a good experience all around .

Overall it’s a great and fun experience, thank you! The only downside was, it was cold with the vents on, many around table started putting coats on and the floor had so much fallen food. I understand it’s that kind of cooking - throwing food around - and would have been ok with a few shrimp tails or grains or rice on the floor, but it was more like someone dropped the whole meal on the floor and chefs spread it around with their carts rolling over, not pleasant.

This Time was not as good. The steak and mushrooms were under cooked and under seasoned. Roger, the chef seemed to big in a big hurry to get finished. Not very entertaining this time.

The food was delicious, our chef excellent and entertaining, our server was very good but the wait was NOT good. Our reservation was for 6:45 pm and we arrived on time and were seated at 7 pm. Besides getting drinks about 20 minutes later and salad and soup a little before 8, our chef finally arrived at our table around 8 pm - an hour and 15 minutes from time of reservation. We left the restaurant at 9:20. We had hoped to be eating by 7:30 at the latest. The table next to us was seated at 8 pm and their chef came immediately and they left before we did! If this time period is a very busy time, the management should allow more time between seatings and reservations. From leaving our house at 6:30 pm (we live 10 minutes away) and arriving home at 9:33 pm took 3 hours. 🙁

I had heard good things about this place but we were all very disappointed. The food did not really have any flavor and our chef had no personality whatsoever and screwed up 3 out of 7 plates. I will not be returning nor would I recommend it, especially given the amount of money, just not worth it!

Long wait, especially if you don’t have reservations. We had reservations and still had to wait, but they comped us with California rolls, which they didn’t have to do but did alleviate the irritation. Some of the best steak I’ve had, especially with the butter in top-yum! They are very pleasant, friendly, and everyone has a good time. The chefs are open to talking and questions. Manager is super nice. Overall one of the BEST places to eat!

We had Amy as a cook and she was great. We have been going to Benihana for almost 20 years. The last couple of times we were there we were thinking of not coming back. The cooks were not entertaining. One time the fan grease was dripping on our table. But Amy has changed our minds. She was funny and asked if we wanted more/less salt etc. would recommend her.

We love to visit this restaurant for special occasions. It is such a happy place and if you get placed with another group that is celebrating, it can be amazing. The food is always stellar and we have recently started to try a few of their appetizer dishes. That being said, even if you have a reservation you will likely have to wait at least 15-30 minutes to get seated. Since even weeknights can be very full, you may have to wait another while to get your drinks.

We had Angel got our chef. The server was terrible and forgot everything. She was so slow, we ran out of drinks, needed water but she was no where to be found. The heat in there was so miserable and overly hot. Our salads came with very little salad dressing on them. It seems that they are trying to cut corners but it is not a good choice. We came with the experience would be great but everywhere you look the chefs seem so unhappy like they are constantly being watched. It almost feels like the chefs can not give a good show fir the fear of getting in trouble.

Always a great experience. The chef (Christopher) was fun, entertaining and also a great cook. My family did comment when I got home that I smelled like a restaurant. The price you pay for a good meal with friends. Most certainly will go back.
