The food was good and the service was friendly but we keep having to remind them what we supposed to get. They almost forgot my kids noodles and totally forgot about my serving of rice and they almost forgot our ice cream after our meals.

I was disappointed in the wait time for a chef. It was 40 minutes after our complete table was seated. We had arrived another 10 minutes earlier with reservations.

Our family has been going to Benihana Denver for 10 years about twice a year. We were so disappointed tonight about the service and food quality. Feels like since they change ownership the restaurant and food are going down. Our chef was nice but was ok, we always been happy with the energy and service until tonight. The soup was gross, tasted like water down with beef bouillon and the salad one of my favorites was tasteless, the dressing didn’t taste like ginger , felt water down dressing. Feels like they new ownership trying to cut expenses and jeopardizing the quality of their food.
We will be looking for a different restaurant

We were celebrating two college graduations and a wedding anniversary and we had such a great time! Although our waitress was a little slow out of the gate (she just disappeared for a while, leaving us wondering what happened to her), our chef was so much fun and entertaining he more than made up for it! There were 8 adults in our party and he engaged with each one of us. We hadn't been there for lunch before, and the lunch prices were very reasonable (of course, the full menu is also available). It's been our "go to" restaurant for special family celebrations, and it didn't disappoint!

Our waitress was great and our chef was very entertaining but could use a bit more time on cooking skills. The meal was good but we have had better there. Not a big fan of the booth in the back. Prefer the chairs. We have been coming to Benihana for over 30 years now and will continue to come.

We have always had a good experience at Benihana, but not this time; it was fantastic. Jorge was an exceptionally good chef. Not only did he put on a good show in the creation of the food with the usual humor, he added his own personal flair, cut the food differently, and seasoned it slightly different than usual. I don’t think we could have asked for a better chef.

Great experience ! They seated us 15 minutes earlier then our reservation. The server was personable and detail oriented. The chef was fun, engaging, and talented. The food was fantastic! The manager came to our table to see if everything was good with our visit. The evening was fabulous! It seems lately that customer care is lacking in the restaurant business. Thank you Benihana for going above and beyond! We will be back very soon.

Benihana has become our favorite restaurant for special occasions. We have introduced our best friends to this fun place and they have all loved it! The food is exceptional, the chefs are great which make the "show" always fun, and the management is second to none. The young manager makes sure that everything is just right. You can't go wrong dining here! A little noisy but that is the result of all the fun at all the tables.

Waited one hour for table despite making reservations 2 weeks in advance. Wait service over stretched/had to wait a long time to be greeted/served drinks even after seated. Orders were not right/very chaotic. We will probably not go back after having attended at least 3 times a year every year for each of our kids’ birthdays. Manager was nice and did work with us on bill.

Loud environment made conversation difficult. Even with reservations, 30 minute wait before chef came out. Poor service ; she misheard my drink order--Coke with a lemon became Diet Pepsi with a lime. Server also took too long to refill drinks during meal and then rushed us out by clearing plates before we were done and bringing to-go containers immediately after we were served main course. Then, she made us wait on her for an extended time to pay bill and did nothing for our reservation despite it being a birthday. Manager thankfully intervened.

The restaurant seemed understaffed on this particular Tuesday evening. Sure it's not your typical "eat-out" night, but they were packed and probably could have done more business had it not been for the crowded entryway. Service was not as quick as hoped for, but the staff was still pleasant and nice when you did see them. Overall, the business did not impact the food, which lived up to Benihana standards.

While the experience didn't start out very good, over all we were satisfied. Our reservation was at 6:00pm on a Sunday, for my daughters birthday celebration. It was almost an HOUR before we were sat. By this time we were starving! The manager was very apologetic. He explained there were two tables that had been there for over 3-hours which put them VERY far behind. Once we were sat, the meal was great. Our cook was awesome, very funny. And in the end, the Manager gave us a great discount on the meal for the inconvenience. It was very much appreciated.

Sitting with individuals we did not know and were clearly uncomfortable and upset with sitting with us made the experience not very enjoyable. The food was good and the cooking was fun, but it would be nice if families can sit on their own (hence why we made a reservation) and not with unkind strangers.

The overall experience was really wonderful. They accommodated my request for a table without children, and I was seated before my reservation time. Service was a little slower than we’d hoped, especially when getting the check and trying to leave. But everyone was overall accommodating at a level you’d expect from this type of establishment.

I was celebrating my birthday out having dinner with my son who is a vegetarian. I was concerned that they're menu wouldn't be accommodating. I don't remember our server's name but she was very assisting in selecting food off the menu. Chief Arturo was excellent, comical, entertaining and very good food was a result. I used a $30 birthday certificate which felt like a gift. I had a great an memorable evening.
Thank you all

Always great food and our teppanyaki chef was phenomenal. The only issue we had was late seating - we arrived on time for our reservation and still had to wait more than 20 minutes for a table. If we hadn't had to wait it would have been a 5-star across the board.

I was disappointed the light on our table was burnt out, so we really couldn't see the food. Because their were 4 young males and us as a couple , he really didn't go out of his way to entertain us. Also, she never offered the ice-cream at the end , we had to ask. Just was not very attentive. I made the reservations with a special occasion comment and it just seemed like they were too busy to be attentive to the customers. The young man had his b.day and they sang to everyone else except him. Just disappointed.
