While the food was good, the service was unacceptable. It took almost an hour before the cook arrived at our hibachi table. Had we known that the restaurant was short on cooking staff and were still seating more tables than they could properly staff, we never would have made reservations as we were pressed for time. We had to ask three different times before the cook arrived at the table to prepare the food.

Our service was sub par, we waited for chopsticks for my niece and she wouldn't eat without them, then she didn't bring the birthday person a ice cream like she did for others at the table and we did not get a picture. We come here often and I think the service and atmosphere is going downhill, while their prices have gone up! We would rather check out a different hibachi next time.

We are frequent visitors of this Benihana location. We have always received great service and food. During this visit we were seated in an area where the ceilings were covered in dust and dirt. It looked like the ceilings had not been cleaned for months. We brought it to our servers attention. She was very polite and went to get a manager. A chef came over and explained something in the “manner of we are aware of the situation but it keeps happening”. At this point we stated that we were just bringing it to their attention and that was that. Then another gentleman, wearing a red dress shirt and tie, I’m assuming he was the manager since he did not introduce himself, confronted us and stated “ you asked to speak to me?” I feel as he seemed bothered with the situation and that he was quite rude with me and my colleague. Other than this experience, our server was excellent as well as our chef at the table.

We have been here many times and it's always enjoyable. Our food is usually delicious but we had a few issues this time.

1. The scallops tasted "gritty", like there was sand in them. I have had the scallops many time and this is the first time I had this problem.

2. Most of the chefs combine the zucchini and onions. Our chef, Will, served them separately from one another and at different times. It was kind of odd to have the onions served alone.

This hibachi-style Japanese restaurant is pricey, but delicious. We celebrated my son's graduation last night and the staff sang a fun, rhythmic song complete with Japanese drums and a special ice cream treat! Best chicken fried rice in the country...hands down! The garlic butter is addictive, so be sure to ask for an extra side of it.

Wonderful dinner with my son before driving him back to college. We ate in the sushi bar, but enjoyed all the regular items that sitting around the big cook top would have provided. We got to have nice one on one talk time and a delicious meal. Service was exceptional, too!

Made a reservation, was seated within 5 minutes and a fun time was had by all in our party. It was nice that they let us split meals as we had two picky eaters. Been to other places where that was not allowed.

It took over an hour for the chef to come to our table. Why have people make a reservation for a certain time then make them wait an hour? I arrived at 7:30PM and left at 10:30PM. 3 hours is a long time at a restaurant.

I go to Benihana’s usually once every 2 months, but this was by far the worst experience I’ve had. Another guest at our table had a food allergy. You could tell she had been there several times and has never had issues with this accommodation, but our chef got visibly annoyed with it. He had some of her food cooked in the back, and cooked every bit of her food first on the grill so she was eating her meal while the rest of us still had our salads. This seemed to upset him. The “show” was unenthusiastic, he was rushing and the food portions were considerably off. My second bowl of rice was not filled completely, and when I got my chicken, it was only half of a chicken breast as the waitress had messed up my order, not removing mushrooms so when he added mushrooms before I even had a chance to tell him, it was too late. You could visibly see the size difference in my food compared to another guest who had ordered the same thing as me because of this mistake. The cook did try to pick out some of the mushrooms, but he honestly should have just cooked a new piece at that point. I don’t like mushrooms, but what if I had an allergy? After he realized he couldn’t separate the two meals, he gave up, and I was left with half a meal, which I was visibly upset about. In addition, the waitress was basically not present. It took 20 mins for me and someone else at the table to receive a Diet Pepsi, while everyone had water, and was even refilled on their water. As often as I come to this location, I was extremely disappointed in both the waitress and cooks service. I am starting to think twice about spending this amount of money on dinner.

we had a very bad experience with a birthday coupon in May 2017 and after several phone calls we were graciously provided with a voucher for a couple of complimentary dinners. I have told several people about my experience and that Benihana made it up to us. We are delighted to be customers again! Thank you!

Went here for my son’s 14th birthday. The service was good, enjoyed the chef doing the tricks on the grill. It’s a bit pricey for dinner but the portions are good and we enjoyed our meals. I had the hibachi shrimp as did both my sons and my husband had the hibachi steak. We left stuffed and satisfied with our meals. We even got a complimentary photo to commemorate the occasion.

We had a birthday dinner reservation for 8:30pm on a Tuesday night. We were seated pretty fast it took about 5 minutes. The individuals at our table were super cool and talkative. The problem is we all had to wait over two hours for dinner. Yes, the manager was super apologetic... According to the waitress one of the chiefs had an allergic reaction. They offered free appetizers but being in a restaurant from 8:30-11:15 seemed like a long time for dinner not to mention we were too exhausted to eat the main course because of the long wait.
