We went for Valentine's day because its also our anniversary. The cook seemed drunk or out of it. His cooking was messy. Never seen something like this at any benihana. Best thing was the picture

Had a reservation, but had to wait. After being seated, had to wait again. Waitress apologized, but said she'd been busy with other tables. Forgot some of the drinks. Forgot the lemons. Said she'd bring the white rice back when the chef came and forgot that. We had to get the chef to get her for the rice and refills. Brought wrong drink to one group. Had order wrong for chef for another couple. She apparently didn't have time to wait on our table.

It was a special Valentines dinner early for my husband and me and they seated us at a table with five black women and we are white. We tried to make conversation with them and they were snobbish and very careful about not letting the cook put any of their food on our plate. They were very unfriendly and I would never come back to Benihana As full of blacks as it was that night.

Wasn't my best doing experience at Benihana, the cook was quiet, and the food could have used more seasoning. We found out later that he was new.

Service could have been a little bit better. To start we had dirty plates and glasses, grill was dirty had residue from last meal, my teriyaki steak was not prepared with others. But it was my sister and fiancé birthday, and they was happy.
