My steak was mostly grissle. We went for my husbands birbday to discover that we couldn’t use his birthday coupon because it was a Sunday. The food portions were very small for dinner prices and it was NOT worth the cost to eat there.

Waitress was a bit short and snarky. Cook was not as outgoing or “fun” as usual. Scallops were over cooked. Very noisy... waitress had trouble hearing our orders. I guess I just expect more when I drop $200+ for dinner. Benihana seems to be more focused on mass production and fitting in as many people as possible. We felt rushed to leave.

Food was excellent as usual. There is always plenty of food and I take home my leftovers. The chef who cooks at the table is always fun. I felt that dinner was very rushed this time as some were just getting their food and the waitress came to clear plates and bring the ice cream. I would prefer that you skip the ice cream and give us a little more time to eat the main course. Another customer spilled his food on the way out; it took at least 20 minutes for someone to clean it up.

They didn’t take the picture after, on the holiday menu it’s says you are able to request the full menu, when I asked I was denied. The chef didn’t talk to the guests one time. Not work for 50 dollars a plate. Food still great tho.

Showed up on Valentine's day with the Mrs at 1145am for lunch which should generally take 45 minutes from the time you sit down. We were told they were serving dinner and service would take 1.5 hours.  Who ever heard of dinner being served at 1145AM?? And how do they expect folks to make that work on a lunch break anyways? We left to find somewhere reasonable to eat lunch.

We loved our meal and our chef, Chris. He was a true showman, and cooked us an excellent meal! It was our anniversary and Benihana made it special. I recommend it highly for a special event or just a fun evening out!
Two things:
1. I wish the venting was better. It was good - but our clothing smelled strongly when we left. I had to wash everything.
2. While the show that Chris put on was excellent and fun, you may consider having a few (or even one) non-show tables where there's just cooking. I'd like to come back again soon for the hibachi food - but don't need the show each time.

Fantastci service, great food, and the manager was wonderful in handling our special requests in advance so that when we arrived the notes were on our reservation in case he was already gone for the day. All of that on a holiday weekend! Great!

Disappointing, I have never been to Behinana in Oregon and I thought it would be a great place to celebrate my daughters 10th birthday. We were seated, ordered drinks and dinner then our chef came out. During his opening silverware spinning he threw a spatula in my direction knocking my beer into my lap. I was given a towel and another beer, I am not one to complain and didn’t want to throw the chef off his game so I minimized the event. At the conclusion of dinner I received the bill and was billed for 2 beers, with only one comped! So one I drank, and one ended in my lap! So really, I got no special services or reimbursement for my humiliation,
wet sweater and pants. Not on my radar for a future meal at this time, disappointing!

Very disappointed with the smaller portions and higher prices...one zucchini sliced into 7 slices for 7 people @ $150 price tag meal...no fried rice included without an extra $3.50 extra charge per person on a $28 plate? We won't be able to recommend this experience to anyone asking our opinion. Celebrating our daughter 21st birthday was an expensive disappointment.

Horrible hostess service - not friendly at all. Our whole party arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation for a birthday dinner and stood jam packed in the tiny waiting area staring at 4 empty tables. Once we were seated at one of the same empty tables, our waitress was slow to get our orders & the food, although good, was way over salted. When it came time to leave, we provided gift cards we'd received at XMas & were told their gift card machine was down so they wouldn't accept our $180 in Benihana gift cards! We were told we would just have to pay the entire bill & use our gift cards another time! We had to speak to 2 managers before it was decided they'd run our card for the full amount & then credit us back the $180 on Monday. Come Monday, the manager did not contact us & we had to follow-up to get our $180.00 credited back. Poor customer service for such a high price!

I feel like this place doesn’t respect gay people. I went with my fiancé to have dinner and all night the cook Jesus flirted with her. I felt discriminated. Don’t think I’ll be going there after going every month!

This was my first time and it did not disappoint. The food and the chef were wonderful and entertaining. The bar has a nice setting and the drinks (punch) had a great flavor. I will note that it was freezing in there, I know they keep it fans on due to the open fire but we were so cold- as was everyone. I saw that other tables had great service but not ours so much. Even with that though- still great experience and we will certainly return. I have already referred several people.

We go often and I go every year for my birthday. This visit was pretty disappointing. It wasn’t as entertaining as the last time we went. The food was ok we definitely have had better, the cook didn’t do many tricks, wasnt very into the crowed, wasn’t funny and it was just an awkward experience even my 11 year old said it wasn’t that good. Next time we go we are gonna ask for Alan he was definitely one to remember and made a good impression on us. This visit didn’t scare us we will be back and hopefully it will be better!
