Would have rated excellent across the board. However, the woman who took our order was very rude and abrupt. The cook, Tot was a good showman and very plesant.

Service was outstanding! Very attentive wait staff. Chef Dave did an OUTSTANDING job with the food. Cooked perfectly!! Was nice, fun to talk to and did a great, great job!!! The facility itself is a tad old, but they have done a good job keeping it clean and nice. Area in from of the bathroom could use a washing and clean-up.

The service was so bad that, even after asking twice when my drink didn't come - it still didn't come. We were on salads before I got a glass of wine. The chef's there are so great and the service is typically incredibly, unacceptably slow.

First of all was seated 25 minutes late the place had dirt and dust on the walls and the lights my eight year old granddaughter it was her birthday I told them twice and nothing was done no dessert no singing no ice cream. My four-year-old granddaughters dinner of chicken tempura did not even make it to the table so I had to feed her half of my dinner. When we were done eating the waitress brought over the tempura and one piece already had a bite taken out of it. They were severely understaffed. It was the worst experience I ever had at a restaurant.

Waitress had a attitude, waited until the end of my meal before my appetizer was brought out after asking for it twice and it was sopped in oil, had eggshells all in my food, was almost hit with a flying spatula twice , and the ice cream at the end was barely anything to taste, It looked like a sample. Totally dissatisfied with the experience as a whole.

I never been to this location i won’t be back service was terrible from the time we walked to their door. We didn’t even have plates when the chef cooked the food we had to stop her from about to put the food on our plates we didn’t have. She had to find our server. Social distancing not enforced. My boyfriend wanted to change his drink the waitress said he couldn’t. We still tipped her pretty good even though this was the worst service i received in a while and it was my birthday. Will not be returning will stick to the Pittsburgh location.

Waitress was very slow. Chef took a long time to come to the table and begin preparing the food. When he arrived he only cooked one item at a time and did not have all of the items needed when he arrived at the table. Over all the food was delicious. Just took much longer than usual. We frequent Benihana Cleveland about once per month.

We did not even dine here. The lobby was a chaotic mess with take out customers fighting with the only host making it impossible for us to be seated. After being seated after ten minutes of standing in a non social distanced lobby side by side with others waiting we were not greeted for another ten minutes. At that point I knew I did not want to spend all that money when the service was already so poor. Ruined my whole Valentine’s Day, needless to say will not return.

Had reservations at 12:30 pm didn’t get seated until 1:00 pm come out to find table had been ready, after waiting for 30 minutes didn’t get served for another 45 minutes. The cook in front of us was amazing but the others didn’t pay attention to our needs, had to ask for refills, nearly gave up and left the restaurant but after traveling to go to this restaurant we end up sticking it out. By the way the restaurant was empty so we were very confused on why we didn’t get much great service.

I’ve never written a review for a restaurant before in my life but this one deserves it. Say there for an hour without any service and the staff was just so unfriendly and unkind. Ended up leaving without even eating. save yourself the time and money.
