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.

The food was excellent. Cooker perfectly. Sushi came out quick - before soup & salad. Our waitress was less than attentive. Not sure how many times we had to ask for drink refills and carry out containers. She said she was super busy but there were only two other tables (not full) and another waiter. She must’ve had a rough day.

Everything was great until I asked for the sauces. The waitress acted like she didn’t know what I was talking about and then said oh ya we have ginger and soy. We didnt see her again until she was bringing us boxes. I asked about the yum yum sauce again and she said oh ya that stuff is gold around here. You have to ask for it. Remind you when we first got our food I did ask and she acted like she didn’t know what I was talking about. I then asked for some to go. She came back to the table twice without it and I had to ask for it again. Very disappointed because this was my boyfriends first time there. I feel he missed out on something that adds a lot to the meal!

It was okay but my only concern is the chef cooking our food with his nose exposed. As well as the waitress. Management needs to ensure ALL employees are doing their part during this pandemic.

The entire experience was great. My mother enjoyed her dinner & so did everyone else. The food was cooked to perfection & the chef made us laugh & smile. Would definitely go again - but make sure to make a reservation. They also had us spaced apart nicely due to COVID 19, so we felt safe & comfortable.

So I've been coming here for years and the place have went down although the food is always good or at least tasty the building is getting dirtier. The waitresses have long dirty nails. I have came there five times this week and one waitress always messes up and provides poor service with a smile

Please kill those flies landing on food!

waitress was good but didnt offer any dessert that comes with our food and paid for. it was my Birthday and no singing or dessert for me. was just trying to move us to get that next table. brought out containers right after the cook got done, couldn't even eat some of my food before bringing out the to go containers. would have tipped 50% of my bill but because of these things I only tipped 20%.

Was not happy the cook made our rice last all our other food was cold by time we ate. Also he had already chopped our onions and zucchini and mixed and cooked them together was not happy . Last time we were there a month ago things were as the usually been in the past. Everything was horrible probably chose a different Benihana next time like Farmington hills

Server was great...chef was wonderful.....everything was very good but....I think a lot more cleaning could have been done during the COVID-19 closure....I didn’t get that total sanitized feeling while in the restaurant...probably won’t be back for awhile
