The food was really good and the tableside chef was entertaining. The only downside of the evening was that the ventahood was not drawing the smoke well enough to keep it off everyone at the table, and then there was the check. It was a bit pricey for what we got.

Just not what I thought it would be. We made a reservation hoping it would compare to a competitor that was booked for the same evening and it was just a very long dinner for not even the best of food. Service to atmosphere, not my place to go again.

The food was good and the chef was very entertaining. However, It took a little too long (20-25 mins) for the chef to get to the grill and get the food prepared. I was with co-workers on lunch and ending up being out for 2 hours; it was surprising since we did have a reservation and was taken right to our table. Also, we didn't get everything (soup, salad) and it was a wait to get our bills processed.

A very enjoyable dining experience. We were seated promptly and the service was good. Our chef Jose, kept us entertained while cooking our meal and made sure to include our young grandchild. So from ages 3 to 80+, our party laughed and enjoyed our meal.

The place was dirty. Food all over on floor. Watched the waiters, cooks, wipe down tables and stove tops with wet towels, putting food particles on floor. And this took place on a Thursday, can’t imagine on weekends when it’s really busy. Not going back, thank you.

Floors were dirty. Shrimp was not cleaned properly. Low skilled cooks (ssemed that way, but give them credit for trying). No attention to details. Maybe this place needs a total renovation including the menus. Never saw the manager looking at how stuff was being done. The entrance was smelly and dirty. By the time my protein was cooked, everything else was cold. Had to ask more than twice to have an empty beer bottle removed from table.

Service was very slow.
I asked for a check, a to-go box. took so long to receive it.
servers do not pay attention to us at all.
We did not receive desert, but they offer other people for desert, but us.
I was little surprise for Benihana to provide such a service.
I won't visit this location anymore

Reservations at 730p. Party was seated at 745p, but chef didn’t arrive to table until about 830p. Normally the chef is at the table cooking sooner, which caused us to not be done until 930-940. I feel that the time from seating to exit should have been quicker.

Service was very poor. The chef didn’t seem to excited that evening. Our server forgot our drinks and my steamed rice. We weren’t offered dessert at the end of our meal, they just brought us our check out. I thought they forgot about my girlfriends birthday because they brought us our bill and didn’t bring out ice cream or sing happy birthday until we were about to leave, they asked what ice cream she would like. Our server never came and took out dirty plates through the night, I actually got up and removed them from our table and put them on an empty table across from us. Don’t think I’ll return to this location, kind of ruined my experience with Benihana.

Although we go to Benihana Japanese Restaurant maybe twice per year, it is always a fun experience to have a show while our dinner is being prepared. We enjoy eating our meal in courses as the main course is being prepared. Soup, then Salad, followed by Rice, then the vegetables and finally the main dish. It gives a group time to visit and enjoy each other during the course of the meal instead of everything landing in front of you all at once.

This was for my Birthday and the worst experience ever. There were 4 of us and we had reservations weeks in advance but still had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated. They were still waiting on others to join our table, so they did not get started for over 1 hour. The chef was mediocre as well as the food and certainly not worth $160.00. I did not feel special at all and to top it off we became violently ill and this could have been due to how unclean the entire restaurant was from outside to inside. We will not be going back ever!

Fun as always, but I was a little disappointed with the food. It was "good" but not "great". Veggies were under-seasoned and not as plentiful as I remember. Also they changed the mustard sauce to some sort of mayonnaise-based sauce and that was a big mistake. The other one was so much better. Location seems to be getting a little run-down too.

Chef wasn't entertaining at all. Hardly any rice. Chef cooked with tons of salt making it unbearable to eat.
I've been to several hibachi restaurants before and even a Benihana but this one was definitely the worst experience ever. Plus the waitress was horrible. Absolutely terrible experience for my family.

I like the ambiance, but this specific day it was packed and we were seated with a family celebrating a birthday. Kind of awkward. I stated my toddler had a seafood allergy and the chef mixed shrimp with his fried rice and chicken.

I wanted to tk my boyfriend to a nice cozy place with great food and that had an upscale atmosphere. Your location was nothing like the website. My boyfriend was pleased w my choice until we arrived. We has reservations at 8:30 & was not seated til almost an hr later. We almost left for several reasons which I will list, but we were too tired. 1) floors were very dirty w trash and food, 2) the long wait since I had made reservations over 2 wks in advance, 3) the grill wasn't cleaned before seating us, 4) The chef was nice but not the normal one you would expect because he was a bit clumsy so we were a big nervous when he was juggling the large knives, 5) the hibachi steak was SUPER tough, the chicken was VERY gristly, there were things on my plate that I said I didn't want and several others at the table had to have theirs changed. I just picked out the things I did not want which was time consuming and a Hassel. The only good thing was the ice cream. One ladys fork was so dirty it looked like it came from somebody else's plate so she had to send it back and her leftovers came back with added ingredients. I was so disappointed with this location and felt like I wasted $106.55 and that my boyfriend's bay was ruined! I even gave the 22% tip because despite the issues, the chef and server were nice.
