    It was my daughter’s birthday. We told the hostess when we arrived that it was her birthday. They did nothing….not even sing happy birthday…which they did for several other tables. The tepanyaki (sp?) chef barely spoke to anyone and did not do any of the normal things that kids love….onion volcano, train , tossing shrimp etc. the food was average at best but that can usually be overlooked because of the entertainment of the chef. The last few times we have been to this location it has been terrible. We will not voluntarily go back.

    Unfortunately, the restaurant was understaffed. We had to continuously remind the wait staff to bring us our drinks and they forgot to bring out our steamed rice which we didn’t get until well after all of the meat had been served.

    Worst experience ever. Our family of 4 was seated with a couple, which was fine but One of the couple apparently had a shrimp allergy, which the server did not tell us meant that my sons’ order of shrimp and my order of scallops couldn’t be cooked until after all the other food was cooked and the grill was cleaned. My husband was done eating his steak and everything before our food was ever cooked. On top of that, the chef didn’t flip my son’s shrimp, resulting in half cooked/half raw shrimp that he was unable to eat.

    I’ve been a customer of Benihana for 39 years and eaten at locations at 6 states, and this was one of the most bland tasting food! Fury, it was served totally out of sequence. Vegetables that are usually cooked together (zucchini and onions) where cooked and served at beginning then end of meal. No garlic butter, lemon or soy sauce used, and when asked to include some it was a small dribble. Tuna was supposed to be served medium rare as requested and suggested in menu, but was over cooked. Worst chef ever!

    I ordered a lemonade. Glass was stained on the inside with food. I sent the lemonade back and got water. My water had something floating at the bottom. Looked like a small/tiny piece of mint leaf. Got new water it was fine. When we were seated I noticed that grill had food in the corners of it. Looked like the last cook did a bad job cleaning it. After our cook was done she cleaned the grill but it was still food in the corners, wasn’t cleaned well. Food was not good. My Hibachi chicken was dry no seasoning or flavor. I tried my sons steak same thing, under seasoned. I told them I wanted fried rice no egg. The cook wasn’t aware. She made fried rice with egg for our whole table. I also explained to the waiter that my son was allergic to seafood and you need to cook with separate utensils. Basically I had my fried rice prepared in the back and brought out, the same with my sons fried rice. I won’t go back to Benihana.
