Unfortunately this time it was super disappointing. Even worse because we went for my son’s 12th birthday thinking it was going to be a special celebration there and it turned out to be a disaster. We waited close to 20min to get the chef started; then the chef’s “show” was not as it normally is (he didn’t include my son or the other kids, it was cut short and not fun; the steam rice made it to the table when the chef was done and gone and my sushi plate never came. I did mentioned that to the chef a couple times but obviously that did nothing and the waitress well never showed up while he chef was cooking so I couldn’t say anything. I had to go and see the lady at the front and tell her about the rice and sushi.
They did try to make it up by giving a discount at the end but the reality is that we wanted a nice fun and special experto celebrate my son’s birthday and a discount didn’t make a difference there.

Service slow for each course- drinks, soup, salad, dessert. Chef was fun, humorous and extra special to 5 kids.

We come here regularly. We had 2 meals and no drinks and fried rice and it was $90. Ridiculous for what you get. My biggest issue is that white rice comes with all entrees. But if you choose to have it fried (a little egg veggies and chicken added) you pay $4.30. That is the full price of a fried rice. So why isn't there an uncharge for fried rice if we order an entree? Why do we pay full price? The entrees are already $34!

The food was great and our server was very accommodating. Looks like they just had some paint done because there is still blue painters tape on fire alarms, lights. Some lights in the dining area need replacing.

The food was absolutely amazing, cooked to perfection. There didn’t appear to be enough chefs however, as we waited quite a bit for our food to be cooked. That part is on the management, who by the way, no acknowledgment of our wait, instead, they just walked around with their arms crossed.

Side note, the portions have definitely changed, twice the chef had to go back for more food, as if it’s not expensive enough.

Our server was not attentive. At one point, we had 9 water/soda glasses sitting on the table . She forgot that we were there for a birthday and did not sing.
Our chef forgot ALL of the sauces.
The seafood was over cooked.
The "show" was not what I remembered it to be back in the day.

Overall, we were disappointed. This was my kids first time and we had hoped it would be a memorable experience. Unfortunately, it was, but not for the reason we hoped.

We went with friend for my birthday dinner. The chef forgot my boyfriends steamed rice but gave him a portion of the fried rice after he prepared it. We didn't bother asking for the steamed rise as we had a ton food! Our chef was very enthusiastic. It was our friends first time and we throughly enjoyed ourselves!

Great service! Kids loved it. The hats and family picture at the end were a big hit with them. The staff went out of their way to make it special. We haven’t been out to eat very much in the last few months and our experience at Benihana was totally worth it and felt safe!

Went as a group for birthday. Had several kids in our party. Chef gave them the show they wanted and we had a wonderful time. Our server was friendly and attentive, although the restaurant got really busy she made our table pleasant. Tons of food and several courses that everyone enjoyed. Great atmosphere by the chef.

Our chef Anna was great. Everything was cooked wonderfully. The fan in the hood above us seemed to have a loose belt or something and had a very obnoxious clunking sound like the windows open on a highway. Our server told us that’s just how it is but even the chef commented that something seemed wrong with it and it was so hard to hear. They were also out of the Benitini stuff but I couldn’t understand what else the server was recommending because of the fan.

Our chef, in a joking manner, kept telling us it was his first day. After the multiple mistakes it appeared it really was his first day. There were so many items that didn't come out with the original tray of food. He kept having to ask someone to get more of this and more of that. At one point, we had to actually tell him what was missing. The overall experience was just ok which was sad because we were celebrating my 90 year old mothers birthday and that was her first time there.

Our chef was great! We were the only ones at the table, so not so much of a show, but good conversation. The food was as great as ever. They haven't missed a beat. I was annoyed to be asked to stand outside while the table was being prepped, only to find out 20 minutes later they had forgotten about us.
