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.

Appetizers were cold and came out after the soup and salads. Entrees were very salty but we are it because we were hungry and were waiting for this reservation for weeks.

Had a reservation at 8. Waited 40 minutes to get seated . Once seated waited an hour and 15 minutes for the chef to even come out( which he never did) . Had to walk out with my entire family for our birthday dinner because they did not have a cook to grill food. If your going to accept reservations and over book, make sure to have a full staff to not ruin someone’s family dinner specially in the evening when most restaurants are closed.
