I’ve been going to Benihana’s since I was about 7 years old, I’m 55 years now. My mom use to bring me and my sister to the restaurant in New York City. So, although it’s not exactly the same as it used to be, I think I’m biased, and I love the food. Great food and drink, great place and even better when you get a great chef.

The server couldn't do any of the tricks he was trying and was very quiet. Not like the other servers getting the customers to laugh and be a part of it

I have been to Benihana many times and I feel that I know what to expect. It is great for a birthday or anniversary as they know what is expected from that clientele. I was happy as always to get excellent service and that "you are special" vibe from the workers. I will be back to celebrate my life's milestones! Thanks for your commitment to excellent service!

Meal was good. Table companions were not a very fun group so it made Chef Jeffrey's job a bit tougher. Service was ok. Hopefully next time we will be seated with a livelier group with better service.

Benihana is usually a good time, but our most recent visit fell short. After being seating almost 30 minutes after our reservation time, we waited another 45 minutes for the chef. The food was great, but our waiter seemed to be struggling. He forgot several things on the chef’s cart (which annoyed the chef), failed to bring the complimentary dessert (ice cream) to everyone at our table, and seemed frantic and rushed the entire meal. When it came time to check out, he returned our booklet without returning the credit card used for payment. We got up to look for the waiter and found the credit card on the ground, under another table across the restaurant. Overall, our Sunday night out turned into a frustrating, three-hour endeavor. Disappointing visit at this location.

Chef was brilliant. Food was fantastic. Waitress never brought the rice that is supposed to come with the meal, and the tea and water were very slow to get refilled. The place was not busy at the time, so not sure what happened.

Our family went with a large group of 9 people to celebrate 2 of our children’s birthdays. We had reservations but still ended up waiting almost an hour to be seated. It then took over an hour for the chef to come out and begin cooking the food on the grill. The food was just ok, the meat was over cooked, and the cooking experience lacked a lot of the flair it used to have. They no longer have diners catch shrimp and the fire on the grill is limited. Our chef clearly was not into the performance. Overall it was a disappointing show. To top it off we had registered our kids in the Birthday club and had two certificates for birthday dinners. The barcode on the certificate had not printed and the manager refused to honor them. We had 7 adults who had all purchased full dinners, drinks and appetizers which amounted to several hundred dollars, and they would not take off the two children’s dinners because of a barcode! By this point we were all frustrated and exhausted after being at the restaurant for hours. We left very unhappy and the manager did not seem to care at all. We used to love going to Benihana’s but I doubt we will ever be returning.

Overall food was ok, but chicken was a little dry. The price for what you get is high. It feels like you are paying more for the cooking performance than the food itself. Servers were friendly and overall service was good.

Brought family here for my daughter's birthday. We enjoyed our Chef and his cooking. The food was excellent. There was a point where no one checked on us to refill drinks. But all in all we were very pleased with the experience. My daughter had a wonderful birthday and bottom line, the food was fabulous and that's what really matters.

The service has increasingly gone down. The seafood is cooked until it is rubber! Lack of skill and when you request the food be served they leave it on still.. over cooked. Onion looked frozen I ask the question the cook told me they where a little see through/clear. I will not return despite additional discounts provided due to poor services.

Easter dinner. Sat my family of 5 w/2 couples at a smaller table 30mins+ after our RSVP time (and we checked in early). We had to wait longer for a proper table. This was our 1st bad experience as we make annual visits to this Benihana.
