More expensive than your typical mom and pop hibachi restaurants with sub par food. It was okay but not really anything to write home about.

We had a reservation at 6:45 pm to celebrate my birthday. We arrived a little before 6:40, and the young lady at the desk checked us in and said it would be a few minutes. To us, a few minutes is five to ten minutes. A half hour later, we were still standing, with about forty other people. More kept coming in, but none were seated. One family left. My husband asked me if I wanted to leave. I said we had already waited a half hour, and it was a birthday celebration, so we waited a bit more. Then, another family went to the desk to complain. At that point, after waiting 45 minutes, with a reservation, and with low blood sugar, we decided to leave and go to another restaurant. At no time did anyone explain or apologize for the wait. We will never go back. There are enough good (and respectful) restaurants in the area that we do not need to waste our time at this poorly managed restaurant.

THEE. WORST. BENIHANA. EVERRR!!! I don't even know where to begin!!! This place is DIRTY! My server didn't know the menu/wine list, nor did she ask for ID. It took FOREVER for our food to come! Our server was tatted up (not from "Japan"). Floors looked like they haven't been cleaned in over a month!!!! This place needs to be shut down!!!!!!!

Worst experience of my life! Manager Jeremy completely unable to handle situations and offered up no resolution I had already paid the bill! There was hair in my plate upon arrival and we froze the entire time due to the vent being open. I spent $145 and have never been so disappointed. Take your money and time a go somewhere else! Not worth it all!

I tried this restaurant because I received a gift card. The waiter disappeared at the end of the night and someone else brought the bill. We were never asked if we wanted desert or tea. When I went to pay the bill I was informed that my $50 gift card had a zero balance. We asked to see the manager and had to wait 10 minutes. He did not offer any type of discount for the waiters lack of service or having to pay an additional $50 since the gift card did not work. Very poor customer service on his part and his waiter. There actions ruined our dining experience and our night. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!
I did send the corporate office an email today and they told me the gift card was defective.
They told me they are sending a replacement gift card for $100. I guess I will give them another try. I hope it’s a better experience - we will see

1. I was using my birthday coupon. The birthday coupon gave specific blackout dates of when the coupon could/could not be used. I presented my coupon and was told that I would not be able to use it. What is the point of printing the exclusions out on the coupon if you are still not going to honor the coupon.

2. After waiting almost an hour for a table. We waited another 10-15 minutes for drinks and then another 30 minutes or so for food. It was terrible. Two people (not in our party left). If you are going to be open on or around the holidays please staff properly. Poor example of customer service.

3. They ran out of food. They ran out of a specific cut of beef that I ordered. 20 minutes later they came back and offered me an inferior selection of beef, but at the same price of what I ordered.

Made the reservation months prior. When we arrive we were greeted and told it would be a few minutes and to wait. I begin to overhear from other patrons that they are out of steak. Word gets around and another family asks. The manager says yes, they are out-never received delivery. When he was asked if there was any compensation, discount, substitutions, the manager simply replied, "find something else on the menu without steak."

So, I go up to the manager, just to confirm and he gives me the same story. I ask why I wasn't told this when we checked in or why isn't there a notice, etc on the front door-we could have tried another restaurant. No compensation, not even a free drink or appetizer. It took over an hour just to get our drinks, appetizer, and soup/salad. The only thing that saved this evening was our chef, Luis. Great and funny guy.

We had to wait for half an hour even with a reservation. As we were seated, we were told that they sold out of steak, which was an ingredient to 2/3 of the menu. So we ordered the seafood plate and the shrimp, scallops, and lobster tail were all over cooked. It was an insult to the food. The experience definitely put a damp in the holiday spirit. There are better places to enjoy a good hibachi/teppanyaki. Benihana charges a premium for a bad experience. We will definitely not return nor recommend this place to anyone.

We came for Christmas for a late lunch since our original plans fell through and thought it could be a fun alternative. It was overwhelmingly meh.

For the price I expected better food or a better show with the food being cooked. Not sure if it was because we were there during lunch but it was nothing special. For 100 bucks for three people, I expected more.

Staff were polite so I guess that is good.

Worst hibachi I’ve been to. The food was bland and I was not impressed with the quality. Fried onions and a few zucchini is not an appealing or healthy vegetable mix. The food looked lost on the plate due to small portion and their ginger dressing was chunky. Not worth the money. Service was great- Waitess tried her best to please but she wasn’t apart of the kitchen staff unfortunately.

Overall terrible experience first the service was terrible then waitress messed up charged us for our meal and someone else’s. She then said the charge was taken off two week later I looked at my statement and it hadn’t been taken off .so I had to take time out of my day to visit this lovely establishment again to speak manager to get the charge rectified when it should have been taken care of the first time.

Benihana is a great restaurant! Food is always fresh and great. Chef Andrew is the BEST! He is very entertaining and will give you a great service! Unfortunately we had a Not so good server Destiny ! She wasn't checking on our table, we ate super late1 because it took her loooong time to bring out soup , which she basically through on our plates, spilling the soup! So our meal took longer because soup and salad came out late! Other than that Chef Andrew was great and food was delicious!
