I've been blessed not to sit at a Chef's Table with rude people, I do not like a crowded table but everytime I will be shoulder-to-shoulder, my daughter have health issues and she asked not to have a crowded table,I was cold first table by the door, Everything was fine my 4yr old granddaughter was waiting for her Happy Birthday song they will sing it at others table and she will sing it with them and say it's my birthday to so everyone at our table was waiting but had to leave,my daughter Charmayne and granddaughter Lyric Lee in September.

I went to Benihana's for first time for a special occasion. The menu suggestion given by the waitress was just right. The food was plenteous and tasty. (had to take a some home). The Chef was made the experience of cooking the food a the table fun.
I was pleased with the service. The only thing, my guest was charged double for her order, which was corrected when made inquiry. Yes, I would refer this restaurant to someone else.

The chef was great. Manager was terrible. I already left you a review with no feedback??? Went there for a birthday. The coupon for the birthday "$30 off" did not have a bar code because of filling it out that day. The whole process of filling it out did not say anything about it untill printed in which we did not catch until at the rest. Told mgr about it and all she said was "sorry" and walked away. The whole table was surprized she did that. We almost walked out but it was my daughters b day and i did not want to disappoint her. Trully disappointed that they did not do somthing for us after driving and hour to get there and her birthday was that night. Guess the resteraunt did not care and only wanted the money. Its not like we were trying to get a free meal but just what the coupon offered. Regards Jim

This location has a reputation as being a bit rowdy BUT hardly such this visit or any visit I've experienced. The food is always on point & the value makes Benihana even better. My waitress was very attentive & attractive, no offense. I had a great experience.

Visited for my birthday using my coupon. Sat with 7 other people including my wife. I ordered shrimp and steak cooked medium. It was served medium however it became well done while waiting for the mushrooms and onions. Very dissapointed.
Our server Ashley and Chef Armondo were excellent. We will be back. Someone's got to clean the windows at the front entrance!!!

My food was amazing but service ridiculously slow. As a waitress I’m very understanding but it was not busy this day. It took 35 min for a waitress to take our drink order and 20 min to bring the drinks and a hour and 10 min for a chief. The cheif bad waitress were very pleasant but service was just to slow

I went to your restaurant for my 50th birthday. I dont get out much because I take care of my mother with dementia at home . I love you restaurant and your food. So when my daughter took me out I was so happy. The people there were so friendly. The cook was excellent. I had a good time. Until I got home my daughter realized that we where over charged. A 65.00 dollar bill. They charged us 187.00. I called and spoke with the manager at that that I was informed that there was a mistake when was made on bill and the waitress informed the manager on that day and it was suppose to be corrected. No one came to us and told us about the problem until I called. Spoke to Harvey the manager very friendly and he express his concerned. And told me to call Monday to speak with general manager. Called Monday and spoke with general manager and she said she would call me back. It is one week later no response. The next day after my birthday me and my daughter were suppose to continue my celebrate my birthday unable to because of the problem with withdrawal of money we we're unable to because of the withdrawal of 187.00. Service was awesome but do to mistake I was not a pleasing situation. This day was very important to me but with this it made it not pleasing.

This use to be a very nice spot. It appears it's going through a reconstruction period.

The greeters were professional and friendly. They greeted with a smile.
Hiwever, The wait staff worked the table as if we were at a burger joint. I felt rushed the entire evening. I wasn't done with my soup, when she began collecting bowls and the same with the salad plates. Many at the table had to ask for refills. No friendly menu suggestions or pairing thoughts, ready to order! Piercings,' tattoo and cleavage aren't the most attractive site when at a decent restaurant. Again burger joint ish.

Then there was a problem with the birthday coupon, they wouldn't honor it because it wasn't printed. The year of electronic and I need a hard copy, didn't see that one coming.

But to end on a high note; the food did not disappoint. It is always consistently good. The chef was entertaining and connecting with the table. Enjoyed him.

Not sure if I would return to this location.

Was not happy that we had to sit and wait for 20 minutes to be seated when tables were open and then we were seated with strangers with kids. We had an 830 reservation but didn't get seated until almost 9. Server paid more attention to the other group yet unexpected an 18% tip
