I come to Benihana often especially this location and this was the first time i ever had a bad experience. My waitress was excellent (really wish I remembered her name) but the cook, Adama, was TERRIBLE!!!! He had the worse attitude, complained about everything, and if we asked for anything he would tell us no. He didnt bring out enough rice to fulfill all then orders so instead of asking the waitress to bring more out he gave everybody half bowls. He also didnt bring enough chicken for the people who ordered chicken so they received small orders. When i asked for more garlic butter for my rice he rolled his eyes and fussed at me saying why didnt i ask for this earlier. Mind you i asked for it while he was cooking the rice. He didnt even pass any out yet. The whole table complained about him. His service made me not want to come back to Benihana.

Family night out! My kids love this place. been bring them here for about 7yrs. This was our first day back with the Covid situation. I wanted to give them a special dinner.

We all was very disappointed with Chef Andy. How he cooked and prepare our meal. I believe last night was our last night there. Price of the food and quality of it didn’t match up. I let the waitress know I wasn’t satisfied with the meal. She offer to get the manager. I stated no it’s fine. My mind was set. I will never be coming back.

My son has this thing about people ignoring that he needs a refill because everywhere he goes they completely disregard him…and we go out to eat almost weekly. So the waitress was very attentive to his cup running low and it’s the small things like this they made him so excited which in turn made me happy to endure as well. The chef was great, there was people at our table with special restrictions…he was able to keep us entertained, abide by their restrictions and make our food in decent time and it tastes great. Awesome job guys!

We got off to a rocky start with our waitress so it kinda set the tone for an overall uncomfortable experience..I’ve literally took my son to Benihana’s for his birthday from the time he was 6 until this current 22nd birthday.. He loves this place so much that even when we were shutdown during the pandemic, we ordered take out for his day.. At one point after one of our guest asked her where the drink was that she ordered, instead of the waitress simply saying she forgot, she stated that she didn’t bring it because she hadn’t seen her id..The problem with that was that my guest had already shown her the is when she was ordering the drink. After the guest complained she said that she didn’t want to continue to serve us. I have been a waitress for the past 20yrs at high end places and I know that larger crowds can be a little intimidating so I asked if I could speak with her and the manager privately so she wouldn’t feel like I was trying to embarrass her. I assured her that several of us seated at the table were current or previous servers and that we although we were a bigger crowd, we weren’t there to give her a hard time.. After our conversation another server came over and proceeded to help her out a bit but they still lacked with satisfying our party..As time passed it got a little better but it was wasn’t the type of experience that I’m use to.It made me feel that because gratuity was already included in the bill, she didn’t have to provide us with the best possible service.. I normally don’t stress about leaving follow up reviews but because my son wasn’t satisfied, I felt the need to share my unpleasant experience..

Reservations were at 6:15 and we weren’t seated until almost 7:00. No one gave us a reason why until I went up and asked. Server dropped off drinks and disappeared. The hibachi chef made everything better because he was awesome! Better service up to that point is needed. If the food wasn’t so good I wouldn’t return.

Chef Will was on point as usual. Was seated 20 minutes after reservation time. Service was slow but then felt rushed to leave. Usually love their sumo roll and onion soup, but this time around they were not very appetizing. Needless to say, we have had better experiences in the past. Hopefully, next time it will be a better one.

I wish we knew the name of our chef - he'd been working there for 14 years as a chef and it definitely showed. The best show (and tasting food) we had in all of the years we've been going (all of the way back to the Kyoto Steakhouse days). Everyone was very nice - Zhen, the supervisor, was also fantastic and so friendly.

I had a reservation as I was pressed for time with another appointment following. The reservation was for 12:45 and they did not even get us to the table until 1:15. At the table, we were given a beverage and then waited until almost 2:00 (our reservation for the table said we would be done by 2:15 leaving me 45 minutes to get to my appointment) before our soup and salad came. We then waited until around 2:20 when the food was cooked for us. The food was good, but not as good as the restaurant we usually frequent. The chef was really nice, fun, and did a good job which improved our experience some. We did not get out of the restaurant until 5 till 3 leaving me 5 minutes to speed to my appointment - thankfully, the roads were good at that time, traffic was minimal, and there were no police officers or I would have been more than the 5 minutes late to my appointment.
