Our chef Chow was terrible. He was rude, ignored us, wasnt fun at all. He sucked the life from the table. All around us people were having fun and laughing, unfortunately our chef gave off the vibe that we were at a funeral. Man i hated that guy. It was my gf’s birthday and this dude ruined the dinner. “Chow” if you ever read this you’re terrible

They sent my daughter a 30 gift card for her birthday and then they would not honor it. Because she was 9 years old. I was very disappointed and will never go back to that location.

This is the first time I had a bento box with no rice. Kinda weird to have steak and no rice. Waitress told me that they give you rice if you ask.........Fruit salad turned out to be a piece of pineapple and a piece of orange. Only one gyoza, that was cold. Bunch of kids running the check in desk. They could do better.

The service for our hibachi table was attentive and our chef was engaging and kind. The food was consistent, nothing is better than fresh cooked food served immediately.

The service was barely existent and bowls piled up as the chef started cooking. No one cleared dirty dishes. Drinks came long after we started eating. Bathrooms were gross. The cleanliness of this place was always questionable but they’ve definitely taken it to new lows.

Be aware they are filling up the tables at full capacity if you're not comfortable with that then just ask to be moved otherwise everything is back to normal.

Been going to Benihana for years and I must say it seemed a bit understaffed. But I guess that’s one of the consequences from COVID. Regardless to that the experience was still great.

Getting seated took over 20 mins even though we had a reservation. The hostess was no where to be found, and when she did finally return she looked overwhelmed. The dinning room was not even busy there were several empty tables.

In my reservation, I requested to sit in front of the chef and initially was placed on the side (we were first to arrive on our table too so I don’t understand why that wasn’t accommodated from the start). I had to ask for those seats again. My son’s bento box didn’t come out, even after all the hibachi food was complete. I had to ask for it. And when it did arrive, all the hot food in the bento box was cold. Very unfortunate considering I bought my son there for a special end of school treat. Also, the cooking show at lunch was not as elaborate as dinner. I asked about this over the phone but was told lunch & dinner were the same. Overall, quite a disappointing meal. Aside from those unfortunate events, our waitress and chef were both very nice and a pleasure to interact with. With that said, sadly, I don’t think I’ll be return.

Told them about special occasion. It was my wife’s birthday. They didn’t do anything to recognize it they also gave her a $30 certificate but it’s only good for dinner and not lunch. Disappointing.

Food was good and decently priced. Prep Show wasn’t the best. Waiter was nowhere to be found to get drink refills or to order extra rice for my kids to split. They also didn’t make enough rice for everyone on the initial round on the grill and got mine from the back. It wasn’t as appealing as the freshly grilled.

Overall not bad but not outstanding. I would come again though.

The food was extremely bland and poorly cooked. Even when we asked our Chef if he could add extra garlic butter, he did not. Some of our shrimp didn’t seem to be cooked all the way and they were whole, when usually they’re cut. Our waitress was very rude, not very accommodating and we always had to look for her. I frequent Benihana quite often, it’s one of my favorite restaurants but I will not be returning to this location. During my past three visits I’ve noticed the morale of this Benihana is quickly dying.
