    Management was really kind with keeping us informed about our wait time for the table. The server was really patient and accommodating taking all orders. I didn’t care for the plate and utensils that I had. Our server replaced my setting with no problem. The chef was funny and very personable! I felt like I was having a meal with extended family and friends with great food

    This place is so dirty inside I was nervous to eat the food so I left. I literally sat down and had to wipe food off the chair and then kick trash away from me off the floor with my foot. Customer service wasn’t great either. For the price, I’d expect better. I’d never go back. It almost looks like they neglected the business and it’s about to close soon.

    My husband and I wanted to have a nice celebration dinner and scheduled a reservation for 8p.m. We waited over an hour after being seated for the chef to began cooking. They gave us plastic eating utensils. The restaurant itself was dirty. The floors in the dining area were disgusting as well as the women's bathroom. The food was average and not worth the $133 (tip included) we paid. I felt like we were ripped off and will never return to this restaurant again!

    Reservation was at 6 and wasn’t seated until 6:20. Cook was nice but not entertaining. Didn’t flip food in hat or really engage. Rice was made last and didn’t fill the bowls, food wasn’t distributed evenly, our sauce cups were not refilled, and shrimp wasn’t cut and my child choked on a piece. It was my birthday and it was not the experience I usually have when there. I got ice cream in a bowl with a plain single scoop. Very disappointed as I spent $250 and was not satisfied at all.

    We have been going to Benihana in Cherry Hill for years and our last 3 visits have fallen considerable short of their past high standard. The food was average, the wait was excessive and the restrooms were filthy and in need of repair. The waitstaff was very pleasant and the chef was nice but without the expect flair & showmanship that usually comes with a hibachi dinner. We are usually there about 10 times a year but will be looking for other similar restaurants. Its like they are just going through the motions and no long care about the fun & creativity & fantastic food they use to be known for.

    I love this place! Good food and good staff! I just want them to clean up the inside a bit. The floors, window seals, especially the bathroom and most likely the kitchen too. It just needs a good scrub down! When you cook out in the open like that, things get crusty. Other than that, perfect!

    The food was wonderful as always. We had a 6:00 reservation and we’re not seated until after 7 - every time we asked we were told “15 minutes”. The people we were seated with had a 6:30 reservation. Our chef was great. Very funny and engaging.

    Horrible, the place is filthy, all along the window edges look like they have never been cleaned. The outside is broken down looking with cracked cement. The hostess station looked like a cast off from an old restaurant and legit has old lettering in it. The grill at the hibachi table was visibly dirty and we had to request it be cleaned. The chef handled raw chicken and the vegetables with the same spatula. He continually wiped his dirty utensils and the grill with the same rag. They had no ingredients for my 1st and 2nd choice of alcoholic drinks. I could go on and on. I should have left but we stayed because it was a family member's birthday. Never been there before and will never will go again.

    Our chef was Reggie. He was fantastic, so funny and had a fresh routine. The food was delicious. I have a hard time getting my husband to go to Benihana anymore, because it’s not always consistent. But, his biggest complaint is how dirty it is. That is true. It definitely needs to be cleaned up and remodeled.

    The manager was very on point. I had a reservation and they were behind 50 minutes. I wanted to leave because I already waited long enough. The manager came out and was very apologetic. The person who cooked our food did an amazing job. I’ve been eating here for years and last night my food was worth the wait. People were there being rude to the front desk employees, they handled the situation perfectly. I think everyone was annoyed with the wait. The person who made/served our food name was Ky’ree. Impressive young man.

    Horrible front desk. Ended making us wait then act like we couldn’t sit in hibachi because there was only two of us. Sat us in the bar area in a small tree top table by itself no other tables around. it looked like it was just randomly put there. Then no one came over to us for our order with numerous employees just hanging around. We having been going there for over ten years but this by far was the worst experience. This location has been lacking for some time but this was beyond horrible.

    Very disappointing. We arrived around 4:45 - early in the evening - and the place was very dirty. The women’s restrooms smelled like a gas station men’s room. The table and grill still had food on them from the party before us. The waitress and chef were very friendly and the service was good. Food was okay, extra heavy on the garlic. Half the chairs at our table were broken and rickety. Three of our party of six got sick that night and the next morning. The whole place needs a major over hall - oh and on our way in there were two employees out back smoking marijuana, expectations were already lowered before we even parked.

    It has been over 3 years since I've been to this restaurant until yesterday and it has changed for the worse. If you are looking for the original Benihana experience of hibachi, please don't waste your time. Our cook not chef started with our meats first instead of rice and vegetables. Our meats was cold by the time the rice was done and we didn't get our vegetables until after the rice was done. The cook couldn't do any tricks including lighting the onions for the train trick. This was a special occasion for my daughter's 30th birthday, and was a epic fail. Benihana please bring back your original chefs that knew what they was doing! Will not recommend

    Our reservation was at 1:30pm. When we got there they said we had to wait until 1:45pm then we sat at 1:55pm. At 3:00pm our chef was not even out yet, 3:30our chef came out and we didnt finish eatting until 4:45ish. Everyone was in a bad mood, short staffed, did not even get a manager to come in speak with us. It was truly horrible, i spent $420 and didnt even offer some kind of compensation. I will never come to this location again.

    Not sure if we had an off-night for them. They are really understaffed. They sat less than half the tables that night. We had reservations, but still waited. We were there for over 3 hours. The restaurant was not as clean as it should be, griddles not as clean, tables sticky, drab decor. Portions were slightly smaller than expected. I've been to many different hibachi/teppenyaki restaurants and unfortunately this was the worst I've had. I expected more from the name.

    "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
