Every step of our experience at Benihana was excellent- from booking reservations, to increasing our guest count by 50%, to splitting our check 5 ways, everything was executed flawlessly and with a smile. Thanks for making our night a special one!

It was a really nice dinner for an anniversary party. Our cook was funny and entertaining. It does seem like the building could be updated a little bit.

We celebrated our fortieth anniversary here and had a most enjoyable time! The food was delightful, the cook entertaining, and family we shared the table with were nice. We hope to bring our 88 year old mother back for a lunch as we know she will enjoy the atmosphere and the grilled onions!

Such a wonderful dining experience. In fact, we were actually late to our reservation by 15 min due to traffic and the staff was STILL so kind to seat us immediately upon our arrival. Our chef was entertaining and engaging. The cherry on top was leaving full and satisfied. Dinner was fresh and delicious we will DEFINITELY be returning!

Very little rice served. I also prefer a wide range of veggies. No rib-eye steak on menu. Pricey.

I was very impressed with how the staff handled my dairy allergy and worked my needs into the rest of the diners at our hibachi table. The food and service was stellar, as always, but they really helped me celebrate my birthday in style - without any allergy problems.

We come a lot. Our only issue this time was my daughter ordered the dinner portion while another (not in our party) ordered lunch and I watched the chef give the larger portion to the one who ordered lunch. I could tell the chef realized what he did because he kept looking at the ticket and the portion before he finally decided to give it my daughter. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to embarrass the other person. It wasn’t his fault. It would have been nice to have the chef acknowledged he did that and maybe offered her dessert. She had enough to eat, so it really wasn’t a huge deal and I get it happens in this style of dinning, however it would have been nice if didn’t just play it off like we didn’t know.

All in all it was fun and food is always excellent. Seems like the experience is not quite as "special" as it once was. Maybe that's due to having been there a number of times before.

This is my daughter's go to birthday place. She is a picky eater but she cleaned her plate and had a very good time. The cook paid attention to her which made her extremely happy. When we left she said BEST PLACE in town.

I always go to Benihana's for my birthday and it's always great, just so pricey. Otherwise I would probably go more often.

Dorian, our chef, was amazing! That needs to be said.

Service was another story: We were rushed to give our order as soon as our menus were handed to us. There was no time to make a perusal of the offerings, let alone have a conversation. Additionally, drinks came out very slowly and it took 15 minutes to be told they were out of Sam Addams. Took additional 10 minutes for a soft drink. The sushi appetizer was given to us well after the chef started his presentation. We were crowded in the back corner with screaming children (not ours) while there was unused hibachis toward front. Definitely not worth the price. Very dated which is not the norm in our other experiences with hibachi-style cooking.

Like Benihana very much. The food is good, the show is excellent, especially for newcomers and children. Chefs are excellent, and pay special attention for everyone to have a good time! Prices in the high end, but still good for the amount, quality, and experience.

My family and I visit here about 5 or 6 times a years. This visit was probably the worse we have had. Our server Danielle did not get my son’s order correct, and he was missing some items. She also forgot to give us forks and my wife was waiting about 5 mins before she was able to eat her salads! I ordered water and it was some type of clear soda! Or cook Elvis didn’t cook the food well! And you can taste the difference! I order the same thing every time and feel that it was hard to mess up this dish. And some how he did. Also our means come with a scoop of ice cream but only the birthday people got it. Was waiting for our turn and then not wanting her to do anything to it I didn’t even bother to ask for mine. My sone was upset that he didn’t get his. I ended up taking him to DQ for desert for the evening. Not a very good experience this time around. Hopefully this was a one off situation! I really hope you see this and address this.

My steak was pretty close to tasteless. Certainly the worst I've had at Benihana in the many years we've been coming here. And fried rice was not good at all, no matter how much soy sauce I added I couldn't get a good taste from it. Soup and salad were great as always. Overall I was disappointed with the taste of my meal.
