I tried to book for a Thursday evening at 6:30, and nothin was available until the following Monday 8:00. That is rather a late dinner hour for us, but I booked anyway. We were seated on time, but what was off putting was that they were doing their end of day cleaning. Chairs were being stacked and fire tables cleaned, etc. this made for terrible ambiance pretty much putting a damper on the entire dinner. If the proprietors want to clean up before the need of the day, do t book reservations that late. The food was mediocre and not what one expects for an e pensive meal. Very disappointing.

Came to dine a few times recently for special occasions. Food is always great but when the chefs are lively and put on their show it is a much more enjoyable experience than when they're more reserved. They are all part of the whole experience.

Love the service. Food quality could be improved, more seasoning or special dishes. We ordered 3 entrées and some appetizers, the appetizers were pretty good but the entrée tasted so similar to each other...

The lady who waited on us was a bit rushy in ordering. I figured that us because of Covid-19 and they want to serve as many people as possible. Our chef Rob was very good. He was entertaining and very nice. Food was fantastic as usual 😋

Booked at 1915, arrive restaurant at 1900, got seating 2005. What's the meaning of reservation? Server take order 2030. First food serving 2055. OMG, it's not a french restaurant.
Food quality was bad, slow, cannot blame servers and chef, it's the management problem.
Totally will not go again.

I always looked forward to go to Benihana but lately, they are loosing their luster and unique fun atmosphere. The service is very slow, it took one hour and half to get our chef. They rushed us to order the food without letting us review the menu but then you you one hour and and half to get the chef. Also they raised the price and reduced the quantity of the food. The chef was vey nice the servant was rude and an attentive. Maybe because of COVID things are not normal but they need to work harder to make people come back and eat in restaurants. I know I am hard in my review but I need to be honest so they can improve. The food is excellent but they raised prices and reduced the quantity....

This was a wonderful treat. It was our first dining out since Covid. If your party was 3 or more you had the whole tabl- we were four so score! Every other table was used & staggered. The staff all wore masks & did a great job speaking loud enough so you could hear. Our chef was great - told some new corny jokes but was not too crazy which was perfect. Food was good & expensive as it is at Benihana. Because there were less people it was way less noisy and practically a private dining experience. We felt as safe as you can during these times and it was so good to get out of the house, eat a good dinner & not have to do dishes. It was like it used to be, even a little better with less people & noise. At the end I was almost teary eyed & ready to give Brady a hug. Thank you!

We love Benihana! We go every year for multiple birthdays. This year with COVID was harder. We were unable to get a table for 8 (to include my youngest 2 children) which was sad. But overall everything was wonderful as usual.

I absolutely loved it! The experience from the very beginning made it worth it. We had our own table away from others so I felt comfortable. They even gave me a keepsake photo and a dessert just to celebrate my special day! Will definitely be coming back.

By no fault of their’s, they have to wear a mask when cooking for us and serving us. But, with down draft, other talking and the masks...it was VERY HARD to hear what the chef and server were saying ☹️

We had a great “show” from the chef and the food was good. The waitstaff was horribly slow, inefficient, and at the end nonexistent. Overall it was not worth the price they charge.

20 + minutes before we were greeted at the table. Food is always great.

We checked in at 6:35 for a 6:45 reservation. Reminding we had 2 birthday celebrations. We were told to wait outside due to Covid but was done a very rude manner. We waited and waited. All the while numerous people going in and never coming back out. I went in to check back in at 6:45 and all those people were standing in the waiting area. I had to wait to be helped as a large party was there on the wrong date and insisted on being seated. It was at 6:53 I finally made it back to hostess (same one) and again was asked to wait while she checked me in. Saying I was late! So freaking rude! We again waited while others being seated. At 7:05 I asked again and we were seated at a dirty table. Not dirty dishes but clearly not wiped down! Before we were done eating we were asked about ice cream which came before we finished dinner. I asked about birthday celebrations and the waitress had no idea! She brought 2 little shot glass type containers of whip cream and candles. Wow. I have NEVER been treated so poorly here in the 20ys of multiple per year visits!! Unbelievable!!

We had lunch here on a Saturday. Just the two of us, but we said we were OK with sitting with other people. We were placed at one end of the table and the other couple was at the other end of the table, probably 10' away, so it was really a private seating. We had Chris as our chef, who had been with Benihana for 5 years. I haven't eaten here for 20 years or so. The show of the chef was great! Very personable and very good. We had the 6 course menu with the hibatchi steak and the shrimp. Very good! Benihana did a good job of cleaning everything and keeping guests 6' apart. We felt safe and would definitely go there again during Covid, or after.

Had to wait 15 min past reserved time to be seated with another group who never showed up. The grill wasn't working so they asked us to move to another table, saying they would comp part of our meal for the hassle; never got comped. Generally weird ambience like nobody wanted to be there. Food was fine, but the "show" was the weakest I've ever seen (been here LOTS of times), which was unfortunate because I brought a friend for his first visit on his birthday.
