This place is the cheapest Benihana I’ve ever been to. I spent $4 on a bowl of fried rice, and when they cooked it, it was one third empty! Father food that they do give tastes good, but the quantity is very poor, especially compared to other locations I’ve been to(California, Nevada and Utah )

Our cook Luis was the greatest!!! We’re a lesbian couple and he did not discriminate against us he was sooo loving and such an example of a man to the point I tipped him 20$ everything time I go there it gets better and better
Thank you Luis

Food was delicious. Interior seemed a bit dated but it wasn’t bothersome at all. The hibachi chef did a great job (especially considering it was valentines night and I’m sure he’d done a lot of tables before us). Service was over all good. The speciality margarita I ordered tasted only like tequila- so I was a bit disappointed with that. Overall great experience though.

Had a great time with great food. Had already decided to make Benihana's our "go-to" restaurant for all important occasions (birthday, anniversary, etc.) our last visit. But the manager this evening (12 Feb 18, tall, thin, German-accent) sealed the deal. We had a coupon for my birthday, but it had no bar code (I didn't know it was supposed to have one). The server called him and he accepted the coupon. That was definitely "above and beyond" as, in this day and age, it would be easy to make up a coupon. Thank you for a wonderful meal and a wonderful evening. We will most definitely return!

It's always fun to meet my family at Benihana's! We enjoy watching our cooks preparing the food while, at times, he juggles some. The waitresses and the manager were very friendly and helpful, together with the support staff.

We arrived about 15 min early and we don’t think they had our reservation. We were seated with in minutes. It was my husband s Birthday and I told the girl that seated us and I told the person that set the table. After a great dinner we had to tell them again! Just wanted you to know we showed up. We drove over 100 miles so this was an important dinner.

This Benihana has not had hot water in their women's bathroom for over a month I keep telling the manager and all they offer is a percentage off the bill, I prefer hot sanitary water int he bathroom for people to wash their hands over a discount. Hope they get this fixed ASAP!

Food was great. Cooked perfectly this visit. Ventilation was horrible. Not just at our table in the back but as you walked they the restaurant towards the front desk, you couldn’t breathe well and the smoke/steam was very thick. These problems were never present during past visits. Personally have always felt the prices to be on the high side which is why we rarely visit. The wait time at our table was EXTREMELY long this visit. Noticed all the tables around us had their chef long before us, although our table was full before theirs. We felt starved before getting our soup then salad. When we finally had a chef arrive, he was great in all areas. Everything was cooked to perfection. The waitress was awesome too. Our negatives would be the extreme noice level, wait time at table before any food, and air quality.

It is absurd to make a reservation and wait 30-40 minutes for your table. No policy on lingering and laud customers. This is suppose to be a family experience.
