Did not get to eat my food nor get to get my food due to a “bomb threat”, really ruined dinner for my wife & I’s anniversary. I love Benihana but sucked that we couldn’t enjoy anything but water.

Made a reservation and wasnt seated for another 30 minutes. Staff was unorganized and had attitude. Party of two tables next to us that was rowdy. Cooks were backed up and messed up orders.

After being seated it took over an hour for a chef to come and start cooking. We were there for lunch with a reservation.

Good food. A little pricy, which Is why we go there 1 maybe 2 times a year max. I’m not a huge fan of being “sardined” between people I don’t know. It is, what it is. Overall not a bad experience, see y’all next year.

I arrived 10 minutes before my reservation and they still didn't seat me until 15 minutes after my reservation and then they didn't start taking my order until they filled the table which was another 20 minutes. Which imposed on my lunch hour that was why I made a reservation.

Reservations was made for 7:45 we didn’t get a cook to our table until an hour later while the cook made the food great. Our waitress didn’t care to let us know what was happening the why it was a wait time and also didn’t care to refill our drinks his service spoke for himself which was very poorly.

Our server Becky (not our chef) was fantastic! She was super friendly and great with my grandchildren! Our chef wasn't too friendly and his cooking 'show' was rather bland and not very entertaining. I would have scored 5 stars if it weren't for the chef (I believe his name was Henderson). Again the young woman that took our order, brought our drinks, rice, soup, salad and was so personable to the grandloves was SUPER!!!!

For starters, my party of 7 and I were seated at our table, were not given menus, but found several coasters with bar codes, which we had to scan on our cell phones, to pull up the menu. We only found a partial menu, and had to ask for real menus, since we had already viewed the full menu at home on their website, and knew what we were going to order. I loved our waitress, she was very attentive and knowledgeable, but she never brought us our hot green tea, which we somehow overlooked. The food was excellent, especially the Chili Ponzu Yellowtail appetizer I had.
The restaurant building inside appeared to be in need of refurbishing, but the outside was very scenic. A type of authenticity was missing in some areas.
I would definitely come back to eat here again, but next time at one of their other locations. And finally, it's time for the Benihana management to get rid of the face mask policy!!!

Overall great food and service. For some reason the soup tasted charred which is unusual. I’ve been visiting Benihana for over 30 years and have never tasted charred soup. Server brought a new bowl which was also charred.

Chef was rude when we had table of deaf people and was screaming on top of his lungs to get customer attention but no amount of yelling or raising your voice was going get their attention.

We felt rushed. Waitress was rude, cocktail drinks were small and expensive, overall the restaurant is in need of a dramatic overhaul. We (5 of us) went for my daughters 13th bday. We won't be back. Good news, we made reservations and were seated within 10 minutes. We tried but, we will be sticking with our local hibachi for better service, drinks & food. Disappointed that Benihana isn't what it use to be.

The waiting time was too long even with a reservation, and then it took too long to get a chef. I understand it gets busy but I don’t see the point of making a reservation if you still have to wait.
