Good for as always but so busy that our food came out sooo late. It took over 45 for our appetizer . We got seated at 815 and our cook didn’t come out till past 9
I took my parents here for their first time to celebrate my brother’s birthday. I have to say, the front of the house is very curious and accommodating but our waiter was really late on picking up dishes and progressing the meal and being available. Our Bill was merged with the other party at our table and of course he was no where to be found for a while. My parents were coming from out of town and needed to get back on the road so I went up to the front to ask for help- all the while forgetting to use our birthday certificate which was the point of the whole thing. Very frustrating. Anyway, it seemed chaiotic, waiters running around everywhere but ours was missing in action. Dirty plates everywhere, no picture. Food 5 stars, service was a great disappointment for my family’s first time.
Kids love this restaurant and it is great for family gatherings. Chef's cooking in front of you is always nice and funny. However, we had to wait 30min for a table, even that we made the order a few weeks earlier. When we finally got a table, we saw the floor was not clean. Overall, once you get the table the service was great and pleasant, but the wait time almost made us leave. The recommendation is ambivalent.
Food was delicious!! Service was excellent. Our cook Michael I believe was his name was awesome. Cooked food exactly how we wanted it. Made sure we had everything we needed. Server was fast and attentive.
Love the Food.. Will be happy to be back. Til Next time
It was great all around
Really good service, clean and fallow the health procedures
Food as always was delicious. It is like you have your own private chef. You have fun get a show and eat amazing food.
It was a fun celebration for my mom's 87th birthday and she considered the lunch and the 'show' quite a treat. The food was very tasty and so were the sauces. Our chef was quite skilled and we got plenty of food - we needed to go boxes. The waiters even sang happy birthday to my mom and served her her choice of ice cream and candle. It was a fun celebration.
The only problem we had was finding the place since there's a lot of construction around their parking lot and my nav routed me to an entirely different place!
The server talked too fast couldn’t understand him and would get annoyed when we would ask him to repeat his question. Cook was really nice but didn’t t talk to us during his cooking meals. Wasn’t exciting as my other visits
Made reservations had to wait an extra 30 minutes.
Great place for kid entertainment and great food!
Made a reservation waited for 20 plus minutes, and still wasn’t seated. The parties that arrived after us with no reservation got seated before me and they were even calling parties that weren’t there no more. Were told very rudely to wait outside while they allowed another party to wait inside. There is a dress policy and signs at the door but they allowed a group of kids in that were in shorts and sandals in. It was my first time going to this location and i will never be back.
Brought my family here after our son’s wedding. It was his wife’s first time. The chef put on a great show and kept us entertained and happy. Meat was cooked to perfection. Everyone left happy and satisfied.
The hostess was very kind and accommodating. The server was the best one we’ve had to date. The manager made rounds and checked in with us. We were spaced out well. 4 people total per table on each end so we surely kept the 6ft distance. I would absolutely come back again.
Absolutely wonderful, it was worth every penny. Food was delicious and cook was very fun to have.
Good food, I requested birthday dinner but server came ask for ice cream but no celebration.
Great service from both chef and waitresses. The food tasted amazing and the show was great.
Very glad to be able to dine in at Benihana's again. The service was great. Our waiter Luis and chef Roni were excellent. And the food was just as good as it was before the pandemic.
Es el restaurante preferido de mi hijo. La comida siempre es deliciosa.
So great to enjoy a birthday celebration back at Benihana’s! Food, service, and well everything was absolutely wonderful!
I’ve been coming here for many, many years. This time, it was pretty disappointing. Maybe things will get better when everything goes back to normal.
It was amazing
Wonderful time. Food was excellent.
Very good place to bring family and friends to eat and enjoy
Loved the outdoor patio dining. Service was great.
They chef didn’t really display a show how we wanted for our friends first time going.
Great experience. We had a group of 5 and had a table to ourself.
As always the ambience was superb! Always fantastic food and showmanship! My favorite place for birthday celebrations and date nights !
Fun and exciting experience. Food was great and the show was fun.
Our reservation was at 12:30 but we got there around 12:40 after speaking with Myles that we would be late, he said that’s fine. When we got there, we waited an additional 30min. To be seated while we waited for the 1 o’clock reservation to show up so we can share a table? Very frustrating. I ordered the filet mignon with chicken but the filet mignon was not as great for the price. Our service was attentive & our chef was amazing, overall was a decent experience once we were seated.
We had such a nice time and the food was delicious!
Our granddaughters loved the show and the food was delicious.
It was my daughters 5th birthday, we wanted to take her somewhere kid friendly. The server was okay but the chef himself was terrible. He didn’t even entertain us at all. Didn’t do any tricks or got our attention. Food was okay, overly price. Probably won’t come back anytime soon.
The food was great and so was our server Lay! But it took almost 1.5 hours from the time we seated until the time our chef came! Other people who came after us were served before us and we were just trying to get our food. Maybe it was a bad night for them which is understandable. Will try again but hopefully we get a better experience next time
The service was beyond superb, the host and cook was was professional and funny. I would take my family here again
This has been my worst teppanyaki & Benihana experience.
I wanted to splurge and show my parents a good dinner & this didn’t live up to my expectations at all!
We got a chef that looked like he hated his job & didn’t do any tricks or attempt any conversation. It was really boring... disappointing.
The food was to salt and I never got my completed 6 serving was missing my green tea also I had to ask for my steam rice when it was already with the meal.
It took forever to have the food started. Waited was very attentive
