We have requested a chef the last 3x we have been there and have not been accommodated.
The chef was there and with the slow service and the time we waited for a chef, there was more than enough time for this request to be honored.
Glasses and plates were not cleared in a timely fashion or even if at all.
Just not the upscale experience we have had in the past.

I'd recommend Benihana - Maple Grove to a friend only if they were planning on going to a Benihana; not over other restaurants in the area. This particular Benihana has really gone down hill. The food is still good, but relative to other experiences at this Benihana, the value is really starting to go down. The chef (as amazing as they are) forgot a lighter to pull off a trick, left the table to find one, in the meantime food was burning. When he came back, he served the burnt offering to all at the table. Tuna was more rare than medium rare. Completely butchered the cut.

Please know, that Benihana's is as much about the experience and the food. I know a lot of the concerns are petty. But $200 for an experience and I've come to expect a certain standard from Benihana's and this time it was below par. I'll likely return, but it will be a while.

We weren't seated until all parties arrived even though we had reservations at 645 had to wait for the other parties guests to all arrive - we were not the same party so waiting for strangers before being seated seemed silly. It was a lot closer to 7, if not shortly after that we were seated for my reservations.

MEH. The "Chef" only did three tricks...looked like he was bored and hated his job. The food was basic and flavorless. He messed up our daughter's order and forgot another women's steak.--part of her lunch duet. I will say we got seated right away and the host was on top of refilling our lemonades and water. So, since we go out to eat often and there are many choices--this lunch and a "show" was not worth it.

This was our best Benihana experience EVER! We always have a good experience, but our chef Steven was just so fun. He played off my 8 year old son's jokes and laughter, going back and forth. Our entire table was cracking up. It really was a great night. It was extra special because my dad was in town for a bladder cancer appointment. It was wonderful to take his mind off his cancer and enjoy time with our family. Thank You!

My first trip to Benihana was good but not great. Had reservations for 5 pm and our chef didn't arrive until 6:15. Therefore, didn't get out until 7:30. Presentation was good as our chef did a few tricks with spinning knives and other kitchen items. However, didn't engage us like the next table I noticed. That chef made a lot of his table laugh and did tricks with the food. Shooting it into the mouths of some of his guests. Had a coconut mojito which was very good. Food was decent but not great. Have had better food at a comparable restaurant like Osaka. Overall a nice experience but wouldn't make it a top choice when looking to dine out on a Saturday evening

We got sat in the way back, even though we had a reservation and there were plenty of open tables. We were sat by their prep area, lots of mess and dirty carts. It was NOT a good experience. The server didn’t come back for refills or to check on us until the end. The chef was fine but wasn’t very engaging like we’ve had before. It was disappointing.
