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

Although we had reservations at 7:45 we were not sat until 8:30. Server was busy with a lot of tables and we had to keep asking for water. Chef and food were excellent

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

I was expecting more of an experience but our chef was very disconnected. While our sever was great and very attentive, Benihana is about the experience, which we did not get.

Excellent food! Good service. Since we had to share the table, the restaurant could accommodate less people in one table to keep the distance in between parties.

I did not appreciate the fact that they sat another couple in our table not even six feet apart. Literally just a seat apart from us. That was not ok. Aside from that everything else was good.

Arrived at the restaurant for a 8:15 reservation didn’t leave until 11:pm on a Sunday and it wasn’t because we were having drinks and a good time or they were over crowded.. Literally an hour from the time we received our soup until the Chef actually started the grill. To add to insult my filet was tough as hell, why I don’t know that’s the only cut of steak I eat and never experienced this with a filet. I’ve eaten here several times never any of these issues.

Everything was smooth till the end. Al my party’s was showered by one of the chef’s ginger sauce. They offered the check for the house. But all our clothes and shoes was damaged. Spend more money loosing our clothes. Accident happens, but, was a nightmare.

We are in the middle of a pandemic and there was minimal social distancing. The restaurant was packed and the table next to me had 12 teenage girls packed into their table taking and spreading germs. The waiter had to be flagged down three times to provide the items we needed. There were many waiters so I am not sure why the service was so bad. The chef was good and the food good. It just took a longer time than usual to complete the cooking. The food value was ok.

Our waitress was excellent and very attentive to our needs. She made sure that we never ran out of our drink. Can’t remember her name but she is a short Cuban lady.
I will return and ask for her again to be our server and will recommend to all family and friends.
