    Not a good experience. We had to wait over an hour for our reservation. Then got sat and had to wait another hour for a chef. No service because they were too busy. They even forgot my chicken. We won’t go back.

    The restaurant is really short staffed so they were running very behind. I get it, it happens. Just tell people what is going on. We had a 545 reservation and we’re not even seated until 645. Then had to wait at the table for quite a long time for a chef etc. wish I would not have chosen sat night to go.

    Made a reservation for 5:30. Arrived before / on time and was not seated at the table until 7:10, Hibachi chef arrived at the table at about 7:35. Food was good, not a great value but good. Chef was great but every other aspect of service was lacking.

    We had a 5pm reservation but were not seated until 6pm. Once seated, it took another hour before a chef was available for our table. We were offered no compensation for our wait time. During the meal, our chef was wonderful, and the best part. We were given the wrong drink and dessert, and never received the tea that came with our meal. When speaking the the manager she was unapologetic regarding our wait. Considering the price of this restaurant I would expect the service to match and it did not. While the food was good and our chef excellent, it was a disappointing evening and we will not be back.

    Our chef was great, but our server was awful. Never brought out the chicken tenders my 6 year old had ordered, despite telling us they were cooking and would be out in 4 minutes. Also never brought our our steamed rice. I’m a type 1 diabetic and I gave myself my insulin based on the carbs I would eat in the rice (a lot!) and yet ended up with no carbs and my blood sugar dropping. We finally had to get a manager. She did take my son’s meal off the ticket and we did get the rest of our food - a good 20-25 minutes after the chef finished. It was very disappointing. They should have done more to compensate us in my opinion. Our server never did apologize. It was very disappointing.

    The hibachi chef was pretty new, only 6 months of experience. Only did the onion volcano trick and food in his hat. Typically the chefs are more interactive and do more fun tricks, especially because we had 2 kids with us. I have been to several hibachi meals in the past but this one was one of the least favorite experiences. Next time, I will request a more experienced chef.

    We waited an hour and 15 minutes before we started getting our cook to start cooking there is so much delay time while waiting for someone to come cook the food and the guy was being extremely cheap on the portions he was left with several amounts of food and he would put it in a bowl and probably throw it away versus sharing it with the table as they normally do for crying out loud we're paying $20-25 plus 4 the food just go ahead and share it with the table

    This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. The staff was horrifically rude, and despite the fact that we had a reservation, we were forced to wait 30 minutes for a table and another hour for food. The hostess could possibly have been one of the most rude people I have ever encountered, and nothing was done to mitigate the situation. I will never come back here again. The food was decent, but it was exorbitantly expensive and the experience was terrible.

    We reserved Benihanas to celebrate a special day. We had a large party and were seated within 20 mins of arriving. We waited and waited for the hibachi chef to come. We ended up waiting over an hour and a half, only to get a chef who barely knew what he was doing. He kept dropping his utensils, he didnt know how to season the food properly, and his showmanship was lackluster at best. He didn't even have the right amount of food and then he just threw out the mushrooms he had been cooking. We all wanted the mushrooms! It was quite disappointing to come to celebrate something really special to us and to pay as much as we did for this type of experience. All the tables around us had good hibachi chefs who were putting on awesome shows for their tables, but despite the fact that Benihanas knew it was an extra special occasion for our group and despite the fact that we were dropping the kind of money we were, they gave us the dud chef and bummer of an experience! It was so disappointing!

    Horrible experience, would not recommend to anyone. After arriving on time for our reservation we were told there would be a 30 minute wait! It was extremely loud with tons of screaming kids, you would literally have thought you were at Chuck E Cheese instead of a nice Japanese Steakhouse. I’ve been to Benihana in London and other parts of the world and I have never experienced one as rundown and poorly managed as the one in Denver, CO.

    We had a 5:30 reservation for Father's day. We checked in at 5:15pm and were told to take a seat in the waiting area and we would be seated shortly. We waited until 5:50pm to go to the host stand and ask how much longer the wait would be. I was told we were next so about 5 min. We waited an additional 25 mins to be sat. We have two young children so waiting extended periods is hard, and I would've appreciated a more accurate estimate to have the ability to take them outside or to the car for some of the waiting. Once sat it was again a long wait for anyone to come take our drink order. More of a wait for them to take our food order. Then a longer wait for our cook to arrive to the table. We had a new cook, that was still learning (I understand it must be a process for habachi tricks and preparation) which was disappointing. After such a long wait with two small, hungry, tired children....I would've hoped for at least a fun energetic show and good food. My chicken was over cooked. I was also extremely disappointed in the management, that nobody came by to even acknowledge the extremely long wait times, say happy father's day to the dad's at the table, or maybe offer to rush our salads or something to help make the wait for food a little easier. All in all we were there for 3 hours and 45 minutes! It was insane. Very disappointing for a holiday experience that should have been fun and enjoyable.

    Our family celebrated Father’s Day at Benihana. It was extremely loud- lots of kids but it was Father’s Day. We got seated half hour past our reservation. It seemed like they were very short staffed; especially in the kitchen. We had to wait a long time for drinks and the soup and salad. Our server, Evan was awesome. Once the chef arrived, everything was great. Jolene is amazing! It was her second week and the food was perfect! She was so much fun and interacted with the guests at the table. Overall, it was a wonderful meal and Father’s Day!

    Had a reservation at 4:15 and did not get seated until 5:30. Waited 40 minutes for drinks and another 30 for the chef to start cooking. We ended up leaving close to 7 which was ridiculous. The manager came to the table to check and when told about experience did nothing. Would not go again especially since I brought someone who had never been and they had an awful time. Matt the cook was the only good point of the night.

    Service was slow - they were busy but really didn't have the help they needed. WE waited an extra 30 minutes past our reservation time, then another 30 minutes before they started with our table. The chef didn't have the right ingredients on his cart, which he noticed after all the food was cooked, so we had to eat in shifts a bit. I expected better from them, especially since the bill was $210 for 5 of us! (No alcohol) Pricy place these days!
