Absolutely love coming here!!! Birthdays or just because is always a good time had at Benihanas!
Love this place!!!
Yolanda is an amazing and fun chef. No chef at Benihana has ever cooked my medium rare filet mignon so perfectly. I will request her from now on.
This Benihana used to be very good but has steadily gone down hill for the last couple years. On this occasion food was average but the real issue was the service at our table. Server showed up about after 15 minutes of waiting and things just got worse from there, slow, slower and We just want to leave! We were there celebrating a birthday and he didn't even want to sing happy birthday so another young man got up from another table and got it started. I have been going to this Benihana for over 20 years and I have other teppanyaki choices close by that I will now use.
We had a reservation @1pm and arrived 10 mins early but still waited 40 mins to get in. What’s the point to have reservation?
We celebrated my daughters 9th birthday with family everyone loved the whole experience thank you all
Food was amazing 🤗.
Went there for my birthday and it was well spent at the place. The chef was Heli and he did a great job cooking and serving at my table. The only thing Heli should improve is be more comedic and show us more unexpected tricks as he's cooking our food. Another thing the restaurant should improve is having a better camera. The server used an older model digital camera which had the picture to be blurry on the right side. Should order an up to date camera with high quality to make a great souvenir. Other than that it was a great 25th birthday for me.
Seated late and then had to wait additional 30-45 minutes for service. Server seemed like he was running around like a chicken with his head cut off. Our chef was lackluster in his performance.
Sorry, just totally disappointed this visit.
FOOD WAS GOOD AND THE CHEF WAS ENTERTAINING. SERVER WAS EXCELLENT AND WOULD RECOMEND TO OTHER PEOPLE.
We come here at least 10-15 times a year. One of our fav spots.
If it wasn’t for my kids loving this place, I wouldn’t return.
We had 5pm reservations, the hostess spent more time on her phone then looking up at me when I asked her “if we’ll be taken to our table soon”.
Finally has someone take us to our table at at 5:30, service was ok. Cook was lame...normally our cook does trick and the kids love the entertainment, this was not the case.
Rigo our chef was fantastic. This was the second he cooked for us. He has a great sense of humor and is an outstanding chef. The whole family was so HAPPY and PLEASED.
Thank you for making our Mother’s Day and Birthday celebration extra special.
I had not been to Benihana since the 1980's! I really enjoyed the experience! Fantastic food and great value for the price. We were stuffed!
Chef and waitress were great! We still had to wait 45 min more after our reservation time without any apologies or explanations from hostesses.
Came here for Mother’s Day weekend. It was my parents first time here and glad to see they enjoyed every bit of it.
We took our 8yr old for his birthday and he loved the show; we had a great chef at the table and the food was excellent.
It was full of mesmerizing experiences and the chef was very ecstatic and had a very good sense of humor. :)
It were awesome I really love this restaurant Benihana is the best Japanese restaurant I try ever every family birthday or anniversary we go there
Fun and great food!
Food is always good and fresh. It’s fun to see the chefs cook in front of you. But, our chef on this day and time seemed a bit rushed. He pored teriyaki sauce by mistake on our beef and insisted that’s how it came. Sure.
I love Benihana, however the last two times we visited the location in Cupertino, I think they had a new cooking crew. The guys completed the dinner at different rates. And it just wasn't what I was expecting. This last time the server was very hard for us to hear, and apparently was getting things mixed up, although I've seen him in there before. Overall, still love Beni's, and hope to go back next week, but a bit disappointed.
My server and chef were outstanding I hope if I go back those are the 2 I would like again
Over all good service was slow but food-was great.
While as usual the food is outstanding, we had to wait a long time for our cook and so the dinner overall took a lot more time than usual outing at BeniHana.
Great kid friendly place. Actually benihanas was the request from the bday girl🙈🙈🙈🎂🎂🎂🍡🍡🍡🍢🍢🍢
I never got my drink my husband had to go to the bar to get my drink and no one at our table for any refills on drinks.
Worst service ever!! Even the manager was unhelpful
Still one of the best dinners ever I love this place for the price. Food. Fun and good peoples. So great.
Great food, as always. Our cook was very pleasant. We enjoyed our friend's 82nd birthday luncheon very much.
Our Waiter and then Chef David were fabulous!
My experience was ok! I was there to celebrate my mother’s birthday. I felt the food was good, the prices where a bit high for what was served and it was slightly after lunch. I felt our server was very good, but the chef that made our food was ok, no extra he seemed to do just do his job and was done, nothing exciting.
Online Reservation was very easy and convenient. There was even a reminder email before the reserved date.
On 5.1.18 - Our server was AWESOME, her name was Rosemarie. Our Chef was FUNNY, his name was Heli.
Please let them both know that they were AMAZING.
The food was good, especially the shrimp with soy sauce. Chicken fried rice was the bomb!! Thanks, Heli!! Please improve the noodles - Yobasaka was the name (sorry if it's wrong).
Cocktails (non-alcohol) were too sweet, but tasted refreshing (Strawberry Passion and Mango smoothie)
My daughter's dragon roll sushi came with a clear plastic, like a saran wrap in between the sushis, so Rosemarie had to replace them (picture attached below) It took forever to get the new sushis, so my daughter had to ask for it to-go since we were all finished eating already.
Overall, our birthday celebrant was HAPPY and that's what counted that day.
We plan to go back to Benihana.
It’s a good deal when you come here to celebrate your birthday. In the past, it’s always been crowded but this time the table was crowded even though the place wasn’t. We were the last 2 added to the table but they had already placed the first 2 on the far end, 3 in the middle and 1 on the near end. They added us to the near end. So there 3 of us shoved into one end. If the table was that crowded, why did they add us on? Other tables were under utilised and we could have been placed there. So that’s why I give them a POOR on the ambiance.
We and another party had to continually ask for tea several times before we received them. There 2 birthdays but we were never acknowledged and pictures were never offered although the adjoining tables had their celebrations. I give that a POOR for service. The chef was great but the support staff was poor.
Very great food! Loved watching the food be made. Sat with very nice people. Waiter and cheff were very nice and welcoming. Would go again. Smelt great inside. Took us early. Would reccomend
I come here a lot and have been very happy, but my last visit wasn't so good. The fried rice was very hard, dry and not so tasteful. I was with a table with 5 strangers, which is great, but a few of them didn't want garlic in the food and so some of the food was not so tasty. I spend a lot of money here and would like great food, not okay food. The chef wasn't that entertaining. I was the last to be served and my fried rice portion wasn't even a full bowl. The first person served had two bowls of fried rice and her bowls was spilling over with rice, while mine wasn't even a full bowl.
Estuvo Regular solo que tardaron mucho en Sentarme y el Cheff no interactúava con las personas
Food and service were awesome as usual
Our reservation was for 1:30 pm. We did not get seated and order until after 2:30 pm. Very disappointing.
