    This was terrible!!!!! We came for our sons bday and waited 1 hour after ordering drinks to get them. Waited 1 1/2 hours for our chef. Our chef didn't entertain he only cooked for us. We complained to the hostess about the wait as other tables that sat after us got their orders and chef way before us. The hostess did nothing and our waiter told us that he spoke to the manager and the manager wouldn't comp or do anything for us.

    ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!! Had 5pm reservations. Did not seat until 5:45, then did not even see the cook until 7:15pm! I could have boarded a plane, flown to Vegas and eaten at the Benihana at the Hilton in that time! Decided not to stay another minute to wait for cooking.. got up and left. And the service beginning, middle, and end during our wait was Horrible! Please, please take it from me, go elsewhere you’ll be thankful you did!

    Our reservation was for 4:00pm. We sat down around 4:25 and didn't leave until about 7:30. Took forever to get drinks. Only had two or three chefs working when the place was packed. The next morning my wife and I were violently ill. For some reason she decided to eat some leftovers the next day and got more ill. We drove three hours to celebrate a special occasion, only to spend over 200 dollars for the privilege of lengthy and bad service and food that probably made us sick. Never again.

    Staffing was very bad. Not many on staff and some who were, were not doing a very good job. Food was great and out chef was great too. But we had to wait 20 min past our reservation and many parties had to wait an hour plaud just to have the chef show up.

    He had reservations and we were not seated at our time We then had to wait an hour to be seated , When we got seated they had no clean glasses to serve us water, They also had no spoons for our soup. We didn’t get served 1 beer for a half hour later also we asked for a glass of wine and they had no win glasses We didn’t get served water until we constantly asked for it. We don’t get to eat dinner till 9:30 pm Then my husband went to the restroom And he wasn’t finished eating and the waitress threw away his food .

    We were there 3 hours. Now, in all fairness, I know this type of experience is probably going to result in a dining time of 90 to 120 minutes but this was excessive. When I questioned management why two other tables were eating before us, I was asked if the table had ordered things from the bar because the bar was slammed. There were 3 separate families at the table and two of the families did in fact order drinks. We did not but we had to wait anyway. I feel an easy workaround for this would be for management to go help the bar, OR you can get people water until the drinks are ready, OR you can tell people they will have to wait an additional 90 minutes if they choose to order drinks. Sadly, I was a server for over 20 years so I know HOW things work and this was the excuse we were given for the fact the wheels were off here. I have been to Benihana before and never experienced this so perhaps this is a one off. I still will not go there again for the fact that management simply did not care what was going on. BUT, I would not say others should not go. Give it a shot. However, if you don't have your drinks and your food order taken within 20 minutes, that is a sign that you are about to have a really long night. If you are cool with that, go for it.

    The food was great but they should do a better job cleaning their restaurant. The entry door is filthy, the floors and carpet were nasty and needed to be changed out or at least vacuumed. The menus were super sticky but over all the food and our cook were great!

    We showed up for our reservation 30 minutes before just to avoid the long wait time. We still ended up waiting 30 minutes past our reservation to be seated. Just a heads up for anyone thinking about booking a reservation. It doesn’t really matter show up late, don’t worry about being on time. From the sounds of everyone else’s comments on here this is the number one issue… Good luck!

    First off we were sat almost 45 minutes after our 1 o’clock reservation. After that we weren’t even spoken to for another 20 minutes. Our chef was so great and funny but he kept calling our server over because appetizer dishes and soup/salad dishes were just stacking up. You could tell he was annoyed with her and it made things a little awkward (even though we were equally annoyed honestly). We’ve been back several times since covid and it’s gotten progressively worse. My daughter wanted to go for her birthday but unfortunately I don’t think we’ll be back for a long time. I don’t mind a $180 lunch that’s awesome but for the service and irritation I’m not sure it’s worth it again. Hope they get back to where they used to be.

    We had such a good time but waiting 30 min. for a 11 am reservation that was made in advance for other people to show up was annoying to my guest. Maybe giving us the menu while we were waiting might have helped. Are chef was awsome, very talented.
