This is now one of my favorite places to eat. The food is delicious and you sit around the grill while your dinner is prepared in front of you
Great birthday celebration location!
Terrible service. No help at all. Waiters new damn well it was our first time and did not offer to help. Never again will we go to this restaurant.
Somehow not as good as pre-COVID.
The prices have increased more than my salary percentage wise.
The birthday coupon hasn’t changed in years and this is less of an incentive to drive 30 min to get there.
Bday celebration! Have always enjoyed our dinner there. Food is delicious! Service is great!
Michael the manager & Micheal the chef did an outstanding job! Will be back again!
Always great! Servers and chef were awesome, super friendly. Great to be back at Benihana after Covid.
A great experience. My wife and i both loved our meals, and the chef was fun and entertaining. They were really well set up for the wait to be seated (short as it was) and the table was no over-crowded. I would suggest to them that they keep this seating arrangment where they only seat 6 to a table instead of 8. It made the evening more fun, and it was safe. A great birthday dinner experience.
Cook was awesome. Our waiter seemed to be slow, unfocused and and disappeared most of the time. This resulted in the cook going to the back to bring some missing items, such as dishes to take out fried rice. 2 people waited until after the food was cooked to get steamed rice. Looks like the did not know how to multi task. He didn’t even offer bags or ice cream until we asked.
Always a great meal! Our go to place for celebrations!
It is. A nice place to do social event with families and friends .
Everything was great! We had an awesoms friendly chef which is always a plus! Loved it.
Our server was very bad. He rushed our orders, didn’t offer us any desert menu. When we had questions he did not answer them well. Both our server and chef seemed like they would rather be at home while other chefs at different tables were very interactive and made it fun. Probably won’t come back.
We made reservations through Open Table and still had to wait for about 10-15 minutes to get our table. It was nice to sit at a table with our group only. Benihana is a good experience for the show they do when cooking.
Was glad the quality was still the same after more than a year of the pandemic! Everything was delicious!
The food and service was exceptional. Thank you very much
The service was so bad and slow last night..... they forgot about our table and didn’t give us water for at least 45 mins after we were seated.
Everything was Amazing! Our Chef Luis & server Luis Fernando we’re so attentive and polite. They went above and beyond. Best service we’ve ever had.
Our waiter was very helpful to everyone at our table and our chef was wonderfully funny. We have been here many times but he did things we had never seen before. Felt very safe and really enjoyed our evening. THANK YOU!
Men’s Bathroom was not clean on several occasions. No idea what I stepped in. Other customers said stuff to staff. Nothing was done while I was at the restaurant
You go there for the show... watching an expert cook right in front of you. The food is good and it's on the expensive side, but for a special occasion, you can't beat it.
Cook was amazing but the service sucked
I’ve been coming to this restaurant for years, first time post covid. Always had wonderful service and attentive staff while dining however this time was horrible. Worst service I have ever received. Our chef tried his best to make our experience great but even he couldn’t get a hold of our server. He literally left the table to try and locate him. The server got our order incorrect and claimed he miss understood us. We had to request for more water and spicy sauce. Sad to say this restaurant has lost it uniqueness and prestige. I had to walk up to the hostess station and ask them for the check and Togo boxes, while the manager was standing right there.
Service is awful, they not think that people come first time and may not know the place and specific. Also, we came a couple and was seated with other party without any question! The romantic lunch became a terrible experience.
Celebrating my daughters graduation and everything was perfect. They sat us down right away after checking in, with reservation. Waitress was very attentive. Cook was amazing! Michael takes his time and makes sure food is just right! Always ask if there’s anything else we need. Will definitely be back soon.
Our chef was a bit fast on his work, and the meat marination was not good as other times. It was bland. Overall, it as an OK meal. I had a lot better at other times in the past.
We went for my birthday and loved it the hosts were very accommodating’!! Since my mom is elderly she really didn’t want to sit with random people and they helped us out and the food was great
Mike our chef was amazing, entertaining. Only downfall was being seated so late . Our reservation was fir 715p and we didn’t get to sit down til 750pm
celebrating boyfriends birthday we’ve been there before excellent food.
Would like to suggest new tricks / styles performed by the Hibachi chef. Once they know that customers have been to Benihana before then the same old tricks can get boring.
But that doesn't really stop us from visiting Benihana in the least.
Enjoyed the Chef Rory very much - he was very entertaining and friendly.
The waiter was new and seemed very shy which was a bit disappointing. the food was delicious. Really fun night out with the family.
won't be back again because of food, service e is ok, everything else is ok
We had a great meal. It was really nice to do normal and go out and enjoy ourselves.
Great evening. Alex our chef was great! We celebrated my daughters college graduation!
Our Chef was excellent. Food was perfectly prepared. We could not hear him very well thru his mask but that is completely ok.
Once the masks come off, I am sure he will be happy to converse with the table guests.
daughter’s college graduation
I love the place and its location, very good food and their chefs are amazing
You can never go wrong with Benihana’s. But if you don’t want to be rushed, I wouldn’t recommend eating here. We sat for ~40 minutes before the chef came. Then after making all of the food, about 5 minutes later a lady came up, brought to go boxes and said I’ll give you a few minutes but you need to finish so we can serve ice cream. We hardly had any time to eat, our plates were still full of food. Not even 5 minutes later she told us to box everything up, and took ice cream orders. She also tried to give us our checks before the ice cream had even arrived. As soon as the ice cream was dropped she brought dropped the checks. She was overly pushy to get us out. No one told us that there was any time limit.
Everything was great just my steak was a bid undercooked not how I had requested.
Excellent chef, Rony! Great showmanship, humor and cook.
