Overall another great experience at Benihana. My husband did have to send back his seaweed salad as it was froze and he could eat it. My friends salmon was a little over cooked. But overall a great experience.
I feel the food is too pricey for what I’m receiving , $32 for just chicken and it’s only one breast 😒 $7 for rice that should come with the meal .. great experience just never again . Would not recommend
Food was well prepared service was excellent. Not too busy at 4:30.
The food as well as the service were wonderful.
First the floor was very nasty my shoes was sticking to the floor, waiter was rude and short with the chef, but the Chef did really well!
Service was not great at all. Went inside restaurant and their was no one at front to check us in. Had to wait about 10 min until someone showed up. No drink orders were offered in lunge. Waited about 20 min and had to go to bar to ask for drinks. Not impressed at all. Couple next to us never got their sushi they ordered until they were already checking out. Manager came out and didn’t even apologize for the delay or offer to redeem the cost. Did not receive refill on drinks until we were headed out the door. The food was delish.
A wonderful experience that is highly recommended.
It was my son’s birthday we had a reservation at 7:45 we didn’t eat till 845 and it was just all wrong
I love Benihana! It's an amazing show thats performed while doing the food. And the food is super yummy
Not good. While I try to just say not good this website would not allow me to submit that so let me just say it was not a good experience last night
The chef wasn’t that interactive the way that I thought. He was very quiet and I asked for my filet mignon to be medium well, he gave it to me well. I didn’t say anything as I was trying to enjoy the experience. There were no bells and whistles. He showed up , he cooked , and it was well done and charred in places. So the experience didn’t live up to the hype. That was 120 dollars for someone to cook for us basically. I don’t see myself going back anytime soon. I don’t think the service was worth 135.
Had a great time with the chief and the entertainment while cooking the food. Server was very attentive restaurant was clean
Always love Benihanas. Went every week when it was downtown years ago and me and girlfriend try to go at least once a month. The pandemic did not allow us to come for over a year! But we truly enjoy the food and the ambience we receive. Great place!!
It was for my father’s birthday dinner
The service and food was delicious. I will be back soon.
over charged on my bill. food took 2 hours to be prepared. waiter kept leaving and couldn't be found. food was under cooked. it was my birthday celebration had my coupon but did not get to use it because waiter forgot and I was told it was to late to do a refund and was given 40$ cash. just a terrible experience.
I love the food and drinks !!!
Always go to Benihana for my birthday. My kids have fun here and are entertained. The food is always good, and the service is very friendly and quick. Will always be one of our favorite places.
Food was delicious. Service was good. Time wait for serving of food was a long time.
Waiter was very good. Chef serving of food was good.
I made a reservation that had to be modified at the last minute. They were still able to accommodate me at the same time. The food was good. I loved it.
Wonderful food. Entertaining hibachi chef. $41 for 2 at lunchtime. Portions were huge.
Chef was good, food was delicious and plentiful. Server was a bit out of sync but very nice.... maybe had too many tables to deal with.
Downside... women's restrooms were filthy as usual. Floors always sticky and stalls unattended. In dire need of updating and scheduled cleanup during business hours.
The prices have been raised and you get charged for extra things like fried rice when your dinner is already over $40. It should be included. We also felt very rushed. Like we were taking up someone else’s table. We had 4 adults and one child and our bill was still over $210 even though we had two $30 birthday certificates to use. If we come back it will only be for lunch.
The wait for the chef was a bit longer than expected, but the chef was very personable and professional. The food was really good.
Food was not timed correctly. Entrance and women’s bathroom smelled like sewage
The wait was pretty long to get a cook to come to the table but the server made sure we were okay the whole time. When the cook did get there he made it really interesting to watch him and the food was amazing.
This place is going down hill. Walked into a fight with customers and a manger over someone skipping out on a bill. After that was over, the manager ignored us as he was visible upset. Finally after feeling awkward for about 5 minutes, another greeter welcomed us. There was also a really bad odor this evening like a bathroom had backed up and overflowed.
Once we got to our table things got better. Our server was outstanding and our cook was a real hoot. Food was good as usual.
This is the first time I have had a not great experience. Many of us ordered the 6 course meal. First, three of us wanted the white rice which our waitress did not bring out until the very end when the cook was done. This should have been done in the beginning of the meal or at least when the cook was cooking up the chicken fried rice. Also, there was no offer of ice cream or sherbert or hot tea. In the past, these were always brought out. Our waitress obviously had other things to do. I was unimpressed with this visit, there were 6 of us in our party and the first time for a couple of them. I am not sure I'll go back as there was aNother restaurant in Milford that was recommended.
Nice to visit something different. They followed Covid 19 procedures
My meal was overpriced and I didn’t even end up getting my food it was given away to the whole table. Had to ask where my shrimp was . Chef was hard to hear.
Food not fresh, seafood had old funny taste. The entertainment with Chef Eugino excellent. My cousin did enjoy her birthday.
Always love Benihana. They’ve got some temporary AC units in there right now, which aren’t attractive, but neither is sweating through your clothes, so that was a-okay with us.
We had a reservation at 8:15 and did not finish dinner until 10:30pm! Our cook was extremely kind and pleasant but very slow and cooked one item at a time so you couldn’t enjoy the meal as a whole. The server was not friendly (probably due to understaffing issues), but wasn’t pleasant. On top of everything, the restaurant had NO heat and it had been out for weeks, it was absolutely FREEZING! The restrooms were filthy as well. So disappointed because we enjoy visiting Benihana’s but will not be returning to that location for sure.
It was really nice the reservation was on time and the service was good in the cook was very very much the life of the party and food was very good but it was just too cold and too loud because of the ventilation or air system that they had going so we had to basically yell while we were freezing and try to eat
Customer Service was Great and Entertaining!
There are room air conditioners next to where you sit, the food is very expensive. I’m sure there are much better options, I’m just used to this place so it brings back memories.
This restaurant is the only one where you can get your food prepared in front of you. Great food and great service.
Restaurant seems to need a makeover, appears dated and dirty.
Had a reservation and still had to wait 20+ minutes for lunch and there was hardly anyone there.
Very poor 1st impression. Dark and gloomy and a police officer as a guard. Was not busy as only 1 other grill was being used still took 45 minutes to get our soup. Entire table never got our salad. Waiter never offered a substitute or other option just walked away from table. Spending $130 for 3 people to eat you would think customer service would be better. Our first time there and was not impressed
