This restaurant DOES NOT follow social distancing regulations and refused to place my party small party of 2 at least 6 feet away from others
We were there celebrating our good friend’s birthday. We have two five year olds and it is perfect for kids- they love the food and the show!
My family and I were lucky enough to enjoy a table all to ourselves, and we really enjoyed our server and our Chef. Definitely will come back again!
We have been eating here for the past 25 years. Food and service superb. Go for it. You will go back again.
Our table was great!
A nearby table was very loud. Not the restaurant’s fault at all.
Love going to Benihana!!
We will be back again and again!
All waitstaff was incredible! It was a great evening out
I prefer this location to the others in Minnesota. I love Bennies for any occasion
Great dinner with family!!
I have been to this locations many times and this was the worst service.
the food was great I didn't like the fact that I had to share my table being that it's covid those things are not disclosed when you reserve your table.
I’m a normal at this restaurant and they have changed staff and all and it shows. I celebrated a birthday yesterday waiter didn’t say happy birthday, didn’t wanna give me ice cream, didn’t care only saw her once the whole time.
Food was not as great as it once was. It use to be much better back in the day.
Food was excellent. Filet mignon was absolutely perfect. It was so tender , like eating marshmallows. The Haiku Colado was sooooo good too !
First time going and the food was great! Would have liked a more private table but with the style we were at with 3 other people. No big deal though
Dinner and service was great! Drinks were great as well. Everyone was wearing a mask and social distancing. We felt safe! Thanks
We were expecting to be at our own table but were seated with another party so we were on two feet apart. Restaurant floors were very dirty. Not the usual experience.
Great to get out to dinner, we were seated at the first table which was cold from the front door.
The staff was so nice and helpful! Bridget our server was AWESOME! Loved her! And the chef was very kind and cut my mom’s (age 84) meat into small bites without being asked.
The staff was a little short with the customers including us.
We were allowed to be in a room by ourselves (6 of us) and the waitress was super attentive. The chef also made the meal entertaining especially for our 2 year old. We felt very safe and they followed all safety precautions.
Too expensive for what it is. Lots of items on menu weren’t available. Chef forgot about our table. Manager came to tell us that. Had reservation and still didn’t get food till about hour later
Great food and drinks always a great time/place to eat
It was my birthday dinner.. oil fell from the grill the cook was already cooking so had to move he didn’t get new food so some of the food was over cooked.. and they never offered to take anything off the bill. My boyfriend had to leave before he got the ice cream because of this delay
Awesome dinner for my family
Everything from food to service was good! They forgot our rice but made up for it with a little birthday song and a picture to take home. I really liked that place!
Lots of fun for my grandson’s 11th BD dinner out. Seated with two others for a table of six. Felt comfortable with covid pandemic still prevalent. Thx for a great evening!
Unfortunately our chef wasn’t very social this time. Also forgot to make my daughters rice correctly so she had to wait till the end to receive it.
I ordered double rice the chef only had one written down so I dismissed that error... it took a long time for my sushi to come as well as the portions were all the way off. I paid for my meal but was given a smaller portion because the guest next to me got my food on mistake.
Overall Golden Valley location has been hands down a wonderful experience. Maple Grove location has been the complete opposite.
It was my daughters 22nd birthday! We’ve been celebrating our birthdays other special occasions at Benihana‘s for 20 years! We love watching the chef shows while cooking and the delicious food!
The manager was rude .
This was the worst experience I have ever had. Waiting 20 minutes for a drink, 45 minutes for the chef to come to the table, eggshells in the fried rice, half of the steak was fat, and the manager was the worst! I will never go to this location again!
It’s was extremely amazing
Came here during covid (Jan 2021) and there were four in our group. We had a slight wait even though we made a reservation, but everything seems to take a bit longer these days. The service was great and very attentive. The food was good, not spectacular.
As always, everything was perfect! The food and the service were wonderful - our thanks to everyone
We Love Benihana just in Moderation. Not too much.
Food was average, not bad. but not mind-blowing either.
Service was poor!
One person from our group forgot his mask and they didn't have any to offer. The restaurant that charges $30 for entrees doesn't have a $0.30 mask for its patrons.
Receptionists couldn't be any more indifferent even if they tried.
Just one lager beer on tap
Menu cards were unavailable and we had to scan a 3-d barcode and refer to our phone to see the menu. Is it too much effort to sanitize menu cards?
Still we paid 20% tip because of the pandemic and didn't want the restaurant to stiff the servers.
Very pleased with service and our chef who followed through as requested.
Quality of salad and soup was poor. Service, was poor. Chef, very messy/dirty and throws food on your plate and drops food before reaching your plate. Seemed like he didn’t want to be there and by the time he was done we just started to eat and than came out the time go boxes I had like 2-3 bites of my meals very rude!
This is a very safe place during the pandemic. You sit social distancing across from the other guests and their powerful hood fans keep the oar circulating.
