We were regulars had not come back since pandemic started. Food and chef were great sadly server was not great. Had to stand multiple times to get basic things and he would not check up if we needed refills. Had to get manager involved to bring part of the children’s order was arrived 20 mins after their meal. Sadly server was lacking good services and taking care of his guests.

Our dinner at Benihana was excellent. Our chef put on a great show for my grandson with the beating heart, shrimp flipped in the hat, and volcano. The food was also very good with generous portions; the fried rice is a favorite. We go to Benihana for special occasions and really enjoy it there.

Came here for V-Day & the service was great. Our chef was amazing & the waitress was very attentive. However, it could have been a little cleaner. The restaurant seems old.

The quantity of the food served has gone down maybe by half of the portion size yet the price is the same... the place looks run down and a bit dirty, this is a concern during these times, our chef was super nice and cooked well but again... portions are different. I ordered the steak and chicken emperor feast and the chicken was 1/4 of a half chicken breast, the steak was small and for the shrimp appetizer we got 3 little shrimps each, if that. Not even the vegetables where plenty. We where 4 people, no alcohol and the check was $180… I can do better elsewhere, don’t think I’ll be back.

It took 30 minutes before a server came to us and another 20 after that before our drinks came. Our reservation was at 8:30 and we didn’t leave until almost 11. The bathrooms were filthy. The chef did a great job and the food was tasty, but we will never return to that Benihana.

My boyfriend and I were celebrating his birthday and we had a terrible experience. Our reservation was for 8:15pm, we waited 30 minutes to get our seats plus 30 minutes to wait the cooker. Also the waiter was not prepared and didn’t know about the food menu and the sakes.

Ordered the Exotic Mojito and White peach sangria and they both tasted like juice. Asked if we could get some alcohol added but the waitress said “the drinks are measured exactly and some people just have a higher tolerance.” And then she suggested if we wanted something strong we could order the Long Island. The Miso soup was cold when it came out too.

Besides the drinks and the soup, the chef and the food were good.

Attendant could have been more courteous in bringing all our 6 course meal (party of 4) but instead tried to hand us the bill without all our desert. Only two deserts was brought out. The chef drinks and food was amazing

Everyone was nice and attentive. Only issue is the air integrity for seafood allergies. The air was too concentrated with smoke and made it very uncomfortable to enjoy the meal. Other than that service was great, attentive
