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.

We were grouped with a great crowd . The Cook was a great guy and an excellent one. The food was delicious and it was too much for both of us, so we had to take it home for our dinner next day. It was our second time this year to visit the place.

Besides the fact of having bad service and I was sat at a table with 3 different parties everything was fine till the end of the night when I was being charged for things that I never asked for. When I expressed my concerns with the manager she pretty was trying to say I was lying about what had happened and she couldn’t do anything about. She continued to try and argue with me instead of fixing the problem that her staff created and our whole table even the parties of people that I did not know told the manager that this had happened. I usually never have a problem and come to this restaurant all the time but never again the managers name is Sui and she is to rude that I would never go back.

The Chef was wonderful and his service presentation and humor was delightful as well as the food. The server was not attentive, extremely slow, even though it was not crowded. One quest ordered a glass of wine and he did not bring the wine until the end of the meal. We waited so long for the ice cream, we started to leave. He also charged one guest for a meal that was paid for by another guest. Not sure if he was new, but he needs some serious help and improvement on his skills.

We had a somewhat impromptu family gathering to celebrate two birthdays. Although I made reservations I had a few last minute people added to my guest list. The staff was able to adjust my reservation and accommodate my party. Most of the guests had never been to Benihana and it was a great, exciting, and entertaining way to enjoy a dinner with family and friends. The service was wonderful. I had a party of 12 and everyone enjoyed the dinner and complimented our Chefs.

This is a fun experience the first few times you go however, the prices have gone up and the quality/amount of food has gone down. Found not one but 2 different hairs in my meal. Manager comped my dinner. Husband upgraded to filet, pretty sure that's not what he got. Would have told the manager about that as well but the other family at our table were occupying the manager with their bad experience. Glad we had gift cards and this didnt come right out of our wallet !

This Benihana is always slow. It took an hour after being seated for the cook to come to the grill to start our meals. Do not go to this location. Other locations are must faster. Unless you don’t mind spending 3+ hours there. Most of the time waiting to be seated or waiting hungry at the table.

We dined here in July and everything was great; the food was delicious and served in a timely manner. This time; not so much. The soup was missing the fried onion and we were told they ran out; that's the goodness of the soup. The chef wasn't cooking in a timely manner; our vegetables were not hot by the time the chicken and shrimp was done.

It's been a very long time since my family and I dined at Benihana, only because it is expensive to eat there on a regular basis. However, it was my daughter's birthday and therefore, a special occasion. Our chef was very friendly, entertaining and fun to talk with. The food was VERY good as were the portions. The hostess was also very friendly and welcoming.

Our waitress was very friendly, sweet, welcoming and helpful with the menu. However, our only complaint, {if you will and I use that word loosely}, is that we had to flag her down for drinks. Once asked, our drinks came quickly, but we prefer that the waitress/waiter stays more on top of that no matter what we are drinking {ie: checks on drinks, are they low & need to be refilled, etc}.

That being said, we did eat at a Benihana in Florida several years ago and it was the same situation. Everything was great, except for the shortage of drinks and having to wait and/or always ask for another drink. It is interesting that we would have a similar experience at separate times, years apart and states apart. Please be advised that it wasn't so bad that it would keep us away. We will definitely return! The food was great!
