We took my wife for her birthday. We always love the food and atmosphere, with the chefs and their tricks. It was just as we expected, fun with good food and great scenery.

I had made a reservation through Open Table for 7 (special occasion) but there was a mix up at the front door so they put us down for only 6 which obviously wasn't enough so the manager became very short & snippy with us because he didn't have a table for us which is odd since I had made the reservation ... it took over a 1/2 hour to finally be seated. We go to Benihana's quite a bit and have never been treated so rudely! Very disappointed in how we were treated by someone that is supposed to represent the restaurant !

The food was awesome, we pigged out! For the price, I would say it is a really good value, you get to eat and be entertained! The only thing I was a little disappointed with was, our chef didn't do as many tricks and cool things as at other Benihana locations I have been to. That was alittle bit of a let down. :( Other than that though, it was a fun night, and everyone had a great time!

Food was not good the 5 courses include grilled onions and tasteless rice with dry shrimp as an appetizer. Its been years since Id been to Benihana and now I remember why. Our dinner for 3 was $126 and the food was like eating at a Shari's or Dennny's. We will not be back.

Lunch here is a special birthday tradition for a friend. Reservations were easily made through Open Table and we were seated promptly. Then we waited...over 40 minutes until someone from our table (another party) went and asked for service. We got our drinks and the dining experience was ok from there. At the end of the meal the man who complained received an apology and some sort of comp card-our party did not get any acknowledgement at all. One of our party is celiac and her food was not separated and the same utinsils were used while cooking. We also asked for less sodium / sauces to be used and were laughed at. I understand people can be overly picky but that should have been an easy request to fulfill.

Service was very slow (45 minutes until our chef appeared from the time we sat down).
Sashimi was cut messily. However, a fun show and good value.

This was our third time going to Benihana. The food was excellent, as always. However, our chef (Roger) seemed nervous and not as entertaining as others. Maybe he was new. He did a great job cooking, but did not engage the customers, and appeared to get some items out of order on the service. Overall the food was great, but the entertainment value (part of why we go here) was lacking.

Great food as always. Service was a bit off this time but the waitress stated she was new. Filet cooked perfectly. Always enjoyable and fun for groups to sit around the hibachi and watch the chefs cook. After being so many times though the shows get a bit repetitive but still impressive.

We took the whole family to Benihana's for our daughters birthday. The service was ON POINT!! The entertainment was great! The food was amazing!! It was a lovely evening! We were surprised were able to get reservations. If all restaurants had that great of service, they would all be book solid every night of the week!!

My issue with Benihana is that I can make a reservation but it still will be 30 minutes before any food is brought out. I’ve been coming here for years and it seems as if in the last 4-5 years things have shifted to where we used to be able to be in and out at lunch in an hour has turned into an hour and a half or two hour process. The lunch meals are a good value but it’s unfortunate that because lunch breaks aren’t usually over 2 hours, I never know if I have time to dine or not in that time. Due to that, my visits are few and far between.

It was ok. It was fun to watch them cook at the table but I guess I expected more interaction. The food was overpriced for what you got and it was average. You’re basically paying for the “experience”. The ventilation really needs to be better. The smell of oil, old grease and garlic permeates your clothes and hair. My purse and coat still smell like Benihana. Service was good for as busy as it was. It had been years since I had been to Benihana - we were celebrating a special occasion. It just wasn’t as great as I remembered it. We really could have spent that money on a better meal in a quieter place. We had a group of 7 so it’s a good place to seat a large group. It’s a unique experience, but not a place I’ll regularly go.

It was not the best experience we have had here. The waitress took the first drink orders brought the soup and never came back. Salads never showed up and water was never brought nor were refills on anything offered. With all the choices out there I am not sure we will return.

Have been to Benihana’s many times and usually enjoy the ‘show’! Service was prompt, but our chef was not personable and did not do much in the way of entertainment like usual. We got a little juggling and that was about it! He didn’t slice the appetizer shrimp at all and served the appetizer AFTER a majority of the people at the table already had their entrees!!

This was not the experience that I am accustomed to at your restaurant and left very disappointed!!

I took my mom here for her birthday. The staff all kept wishing her a happy birthday and were very nice. The chef was really great with our small kids using kid movie references while doing his show. Made them laugh and they LOVED the tricks. A couple of small service hiccups but overall we had a great time.

I will say, it is fairly noisy in there. We didn't mind but I could see how others may not like it if they are trying to visit with one another.
