Benihana is our go to for birthdays and anniversaries for many years. Pat has been our waitress on many of these occasions and we couldn't ask for any one better. We request her on every visit. Our chef was ok, very focused on cooking our food. Everyone ordered their steaks medium and most everything was overcooked. I'm sorry I don't know his name, he gave it so fast and with the mask it was hard to understand. After our food and dessert was done, George, our favorite chef, came over to visit with us. We can't wait for the Covid situation to ease up so he can cook for us once more. We will be there again next month for my birthday and we will be go glad to see Pat and George again.

Food was delicious once we were served. However, we had reservations for 12:15, didn't get seated until 12:30, and chef didn't start cooking until 1:00. So the flow of order didn't flow orderly. Just hoping that it was just this one instance and now a continuous error because the food was really delicious.

Had reservations for 5:45, didn’t get seated until 6:20. Then we were told they were short on chefs and it would be a while. Chef arrived to cook for us at 7:15. Food was bland, didn’t have orders correct and the server never returned to fill our drinks.

Had our reservation for 5:30. Didn't get seated until 6:15. Sat for another 45 minutes til our cook came with food. No interaction from the chef. Just cooked and nothing else. No tricks, or jokes.. Was a horrible visit.

We had reservations, upon arriving we were informed it would be 30-45 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. Once we were seated the waiter informed us the chefs were running behind it would be an additional 30 minutes. Finally 1:15 after our reservation time the dinner experience started. The food was good, but it would be nice if the chef was more lively and personable. They could have offered appetizers when we were seated since we had to wait so long.

Had a reservation and still waited along time, made us move tables. Asked us to repeat drink and food orders over 5 times. Messed up our food orders. Chef didn’t even talk and seem irritated. And the food was sooooo bland no flavor whatesoever!

We had birthday reservation for 7 pm and did not get seated until 7:20. The service was super slow and we did not finished eating until 9:30 and that was a rushing at the end. This was our first experience at Benihana and we'll not be going again.

The overall experience was good. I like how they had food to feed the fish and duck in the Koi pond. They were very accommodating when our reservation had extra than what was booked for and had to wait longer. We were told another 15-30 mns but it ended up 1 hour+ later when finally got seated. If we were not celebrating a birthday, might have left. but worth it in the end. We had very two entertaining chefs and the waitress was very friendly and funny. Service was slow at first due to all the birthdays being celebrated but once most left, service was on point!

Had to wait 15min past our reservation. Restaurant was old and had ceiling tiles broken/looking like they would fall. We’re seated with drunk teenagers that felt the need to swear every 5th word.

They typically run behind on seating you regardless of reservation. Our chef did not appear to be a “stage cook” but pulled in. We had grease dripping on our table (had to move plate and wine glass) from the vent hood. Love the food but not the best experience on this round. They’ve also stopped filling up fried rice bowls completely which is ridiculous since you pay extra for it. The steamed rice is generous serving.

The food and service were great as always but the establishment was dirty. Our table and chairs were sticky and the rug underneath was dirty. The outside needs to be pressure cleaned and the inside needs to be extremely cleaned out. The bathrooms were dirty, the whole place had a cover of "old" dust.
