We were put into a back room which was extremely cold. The air conditioning was so strong that we were shivering during out entire meal. It kind of ruined the evening. The seater said she would try to adjust the air but we didn't notice it. Also, they forgot to bring a filet that we ordered and we had to remind them (not the cook's fault but the seater).

Had a reservation and still had to wait 30 min to be seated. Once seated was notified by the host that there was only one cook so our wait time for food would be longer than normal. Despite these two mishaps we decided to stick around until we got a server who was extremely rude. We ended up leaving before we could even receive water. This was our first time to Benihana’s and our last.

I communicated with customer service since July 25th regarding my birthday certificate. I was told that my email unfollowed Benihana and I had to reaccept email notifications. I did so and did not receive certificate. I resigned up for bday club and tried to communicate with customer service and received no reply and no certificate. We had a reservation on August 15 and I never received the certificate. It would have been nice to have it since our bill was 400.00!! And over 200.00 for our two additional guests who paid separately.

The chef prepared our seafood slightly rare and it was actually the most delicious we've ever had having ordered the same seafood at this location. We really appreciate the birthday coupons, THANK YOU!

Our reservation was at 11am and were seated until 11:45, On top of that chef took another +15 mn to get to our table. Don’t understand the point of making reservations if is not respected.

Overall it was great. Good service, great food, good company. Only problem was I ordered the Benihana excellence, which was supposed have teriyaki beef; instead, it was prepared with shoyu. Still very tasty but not teriyaki as stated in menu.

Lately benihana has steered toward the modern look, plain white plates, simple cups...
I know it's to save costs and have a modern atmosphere, but my whole family misses the rustic plates and bamboo silverware.
It will always be a bit on the spendy side, especially when the prices go up every year.

I reccomend a soup+salad+fried rice small lunch, something 10$ or under, often we buy the salad dressing to take home but would totally order it in restraunt if it wasn't 5$ for some iceburg and 1oz of dressing.

Brian, our chef was positively entertaining. Our server Alexis was friendly, patient and helpful. It was my daughter's 19th birthday and a kind of family reunion with myself and my kids. Thank you for making this a very special, memorable event. Definitely, will recommend to others and come back for a return visit.

Benihana’s is about sharing your space with others at the table for 8 people- unless you’re party is 8 people! We have been going here for over 25 years and often it depends on how entertaining the chefs are. This last visit with company from Germany was excellent! Great food great fun for everyone!

Was not happy as we had to sit in far back room, it is always freezing in there and there is no carpet and everything echos. I am an avid supporter of this restaurant but this room ruins it. told manager he did not offer any comps or apologies etc. Not happy!!!

Took my son for his birthday, he had fun watching the chef cook at our table and I enjoyed the corny jokes! The filet mignon was juicy and tender! The 5 courses of soup, salad, fried or steamed rice and vegetables and main course were all delish!:) 🍣 Was fresh tasting!

Had reservations for 6:15, but seated at 6:30. Seated in a back room away from everyone else. The person doing the cooking was pleasant and funny, but the other wait person was mostly non existent. We had all of our food, but no rice -- had to ask for it. Refills on drinks were problematic. Everyone was still hungry when the meal was over. Overall a disappointment.

We are old Benihana customers and frequently visit the restaurant. It goes without saying that we have been quite satisfied with the food and service provided by Benihana. Our last visit of a few days ago might have been an exception when we felt the quality of the food and cook’s attentiveness to his work was not on a scale we had come to expect. We have had this cook previously and know that he is quite capable of doing a good job. We felt that his lack of focus on his work was due to a rather excessive interaction with some customers at the table. We ended up with some overdone meat and uncooked zucchini. Although we requested no butter on our food, this request was at time forgotten by cook’s distraction.

We used to go to Benihana a lot-it has definitely gone down in terms of service and value in the last few years. Our reservation was at 6:15pm-on a Thursday- , but we didn't even order drinks until almost 7:15 and didn't leave until 9pm! The server was ok, the chef (Jacob) was excellent and very apologetic. We were there dining on gift cards and coupons given to us at the last visit for the same issues. We love the food, but going there is far more of a hassle than it used to be... I feel like they are taking too many reservations and are not equipped for the business, unfortunately.

Our chef David was FANTASTIC! I’ve been coming here a few times a year for a decade and I can’t remember having a better and more interesting chef.
I’m a little bored with the whole “show” overall. I really like the food, but it always takes so long. He made it fun and engaging again. It was a great night!
