Food was excellent as always. Service did it's best but they were short staffed. Very disappointed in Covid protocol. Lots of people not wearing masks and no enforcement. Will not return until there's a vaccine.

They forgot to turn the grill on so we had to wait extra long for our food. Then our meal was rushed.

Always a great experience at Benihana Dearborn. Social distancing effectively observed. This particular visit my husband and I experienced a newer cook/chef. He was ok. We usually luck up with Eli as our cook who is our absolute favorite. Eli is a 5 star experience. The Benihana staff is professional.

The service at this location has gotten worse and worse every time I go. The service is horrible and didn’t see a manager in sight to see how things where going at all.

Food was good and fresh. It was clean and the spacing was great. Sever was nice and made sure we had everything we needed, without us having to ask. A great spot to lunch.

The last time I was at Benihana was March 8 due to the virus I did not know what to expect but overall it was a great experience The people I was seated with were very friendly And I liked the fact that Benihana had a plan in place in regards to the safety and well being of others.Will be returning very soon.

We love the food and the sauces, that you cannot get anywhere else. It is kind of pricey, so we cannot go more than once or twice a year. We have to save up for a couple of weeks to go. My husband is on SS, so there isn't any 'extra' money for things like this.

Food was excellent, chef was good (didn’t do many of the usual show items Im used to seeing) but the service was excellent. What concerned me was why there was a need for armed security outside the restaurant.

We had a reservation for 6pm and were sat promptly. Waitress was nice but slightly scattered. our chef didn't get to the table for over an hour - we were told only 3 chefs were on and the manager was telling them to rush - which showed. Our chef forgot to put the chicken in the rice, the dirty rag he uses to clean the grill was left right next to him and was touching the food - the filet and shrimp and chicken were cut into BIG chunks - no finesse used at all - no fire show. The other party had someone with a birthday - no one came to sing to him. Considering we go there about every 6 weeks this was extremely disappointing especially when you are dropping $140 for 2 people NO alcohol.

Went for a birthday dinner- Covid had the Resturant half filled. Manager had only 1 server working 5 tables. Poor girl was on a double shift and overwhelmed. Service at this location is always sub par but the server here can’t be faulted. Chef was slow and decided to use 3lbs of garlic butter on our meal. They should ask patrons if they want so much butter/grease on thier food.
