    The hostess table was kind and accommodating. We brought in a cake they gave us a tag and placed it in the fridge. The service by Ally and chief Rex was exemplary. We had early Sunday evening dinner reservations so the noise level was a little elevated, but it quieted down after that. We had a celebration and they were very good at helping to create the right vibe. Delicious dinner. Memorable night.

    AWFUL experience. AVOID this location. We had a 6 pm reservation. I got a text that our table was ready. We arrived on time. The hostess was rude and told me they had no idea when we would be seated!!! We waited 10 minutes and then left. Try YAMATO in Encino Commons for a more peaceful experience.

    Dinner was great! Food was perfect! Our waiter was very friendly and attentive to us. The chief put on a good show. We had a child with us and she loved it.

    We had an amazing time. Our chef and waiter were amazing. There were 2 people at our table that complained about everything and ended up dining and dashing which was sad to see. I love Benihana and will continue to come.

    Only 3 stars. On one issue, they failed miserably. One member of our party is prone to migraines. Flashing lights can trigger one. We told them when we were seated, asked that they refrain from flashing the lights above the grill. We were told they understood and would not flash the lights. They kept doing it anyway. We've been to Benihana before. In the past, they listened and didn't flicker the lights. This time, they did it every chance they got.

    Very loud and they crowded. Seemed like they wanted to rush us out. Chef didn’t seem very skilled.
