    The service was excellent, our waitress was very attentive. The chef was entertaining and cooked well. We have not been to this location for years, and we were pleasantly surprised how good it was. They even printed out our picture and put it in a Benihana paper frame, which our usual location does not do anymore. Lots of yummy leftovers to be enjoyed the next day!

    I reserved a table on OpenTable for 2pm and was messaged at 1:20p that my table was ready. When i arrived at 2pm, there was a sign on the counter that said there was an automatic mandatory 20% surcharge added to the ticket and that gratuity was not necessary. When i asked the host about this she said she didn't have any interest in it so she didn't know about it but to ask the server when we sat at our table. There were a total of 10 people in the restaurant when we sat down. We were told that no one else was coming to our table unless there was a walk in. I asked the server about the 20% gratuity and she just said it was added on the bill automatically. When the chef arrived, it was business as usual, the chef did a good job of cooking except when my daughter asked for teriyaki on her steak and chicken. He poured a bunch on the grill, added the steak and dumped it all on her plate. Her food was swimming in teriyaki sauce. The same happened with the chicken. The price for lunch for 2 people with water to drink was $70!!! I choose not to visit Benihana again in the future until i hear that the service and mandatory 20% is lifted. No wonder no one was there, it's way overpriced!!!

    Not what it used to be! Fried rice tasted like cooking oil. Vegetables had little flavor. Vegetables and fried rice used to have sesame seeds but we had to remind the chef and he didn’t have them on the cart. My wife’s calamari and scallops were both undercooked. For the money, I would did elsewhere.

    Our table chef was precise, but very slow. Our rice and veggies were stone cold by the time the meat came off the grill, and most everything didn't have that lovely grilled taste--nothing crispy brown, but more watery cream in color. Service was slow--we waited for drink refills for several minutes. I believe the server had too many tables, and had a difficult time keeping up. The tables were greasy, and the floor was slippery under our feet. We will carefully consider another visit, especially with a 20% service charge automatically added to the bill.

    LOVE BENI BUT ever since the beginning adding the “service fee” the staff especially the wait staff don’t give as good customer service as they did before. Our waitress on this visit NEVER came by to see how we were doing or refill our drinks. She was nowhere to be seen. Only showed up at the end of our meal to offer us boxes. I LOVE the food (this time it lacked the full flavor but was okay) so I’ll continue to dine there. Hope the service gets better.

    From the minute we walked in, it was like a circus was going on. Not a business was being run. Servers were up at the host stand complaining about some corporate nonsense paperwork out to fill out, I don't even understand why you make being a server such a big deal on the job. They're servers, let them be servers, let them do their job. Let them make their tips and go home. It doesn't have to be a big corporate thing. You're lucky you have anybody to work for you at all. It took an hour to get seated. Then another half hour to get greeted at the table. I had to get the manager involved who offered us some kind of a comp on the bill. But we never got anything at the end. When the server and the chef did arrive, they were both very good. It wasn't their fault and the food was decent, but the overall experience was terrible. And 1 person in the bar to handle all the tables and the bar again, you need to make it a good fun place to work or you're not going to have anybody to work there. Most smaller non corporate run restaurants are much better in quality. Ambience and experience. It's time you big box corporate type business people need to get back to what you're really doing here. One positive is I felt like the ventilation had been somehow updated because I didn't smell like benihana when I left.

    We love Benihana and normally it is a good time. Our cook didn’t do much of a show at all. He did the onion train with the train whistle and said coca-cola for soy sauce and ice cream for butter but other than that no show was done. We also didn’t get our picture taken which is always something we enjoy. Lastly our waiter never came for at least 30 minutes. We wanted to order drinks but we’re not able to do so. Overall it was poor service for the price of our meal.

    Food good but the quality of what you get now seems to have went down over the years but the price has increased. You used to get a better experience and great food for the price they charge per person… now it’s mediocre ( 2 stars for 5 star price)…. The cook and waitress was very nice. This restaurant is 10 times better than the one located in the MOA. But as I was looking around the decor was SUPER dusty/dirty… money obviously isn’t going into maintaining the restaurant ambience.

    Worst Benihana or any hibachi restaurant I've been to. Food quality was subpar, and if you are sitting on the wrong end of the table you will consistently be shorted food because the cook apparently didn't know how much food to make for a table of five people.

    Honestly this is the third time I have gone back to try and give them a chance. We used to go every year for our birthdays. I feel like since the 20% service fee got added to the bill the service has been horrible. We used to go and bring our kids and they would put on a show and the kids would love it. We never minded the price of the food because you are getting a show and entertainment. It was horrible last night we had 3 kids at our table and there was no entertainment except for lighting the fire. We were never offered refills on any of our drinks. The bowls for the soup and salad sat until dinner was over. Our fried rice had little to no taste at all. I believe this will be our last time trying this place.

    Food and service was good, however, we arrived for our lunch reservation and found tacky signs hanging on the doors that they weren't serving the lunch menu that day. Nothing stating such on the website, reservation app, or phone-in. Bad business practices.

    Terrible experience. Very long wait time. Service so slow. Chef was not trained well and kept dropping things. Food was good, but too expensive. Overall - bad experience, won't come back

    Overall, it was okay. They were very busy and seemed unprepared. The service was slow and it took a long time for the chef to make it to our table. He was fantastic and made the experience 10 times better.

    Service was poor. Staff was not knowledgeable about menu. Very hot, very loud, hard to have conversation. Chef just went through the motions, not engaging or interactive with us. Sat for over a hour before getting drinks or meal started.

    Cook was amazing but our server kept forgetting about us and some of the food we ordered. To where the cook had to keep reminding her after all the plates were to pied up to eat. Other than that maybe next we get the actual we ordered 😋. But still love coming to that location for dinner.

    Had a group of 8 with varied dietary needs. Got the restaurant and signs were posted that it was only the Holiday menu— which had many limited choices and prices were significantly more. I would have never booked as I had 2 people that couldn’t get the vegetarian dishes advertised on the on line menu. Guests were gracious in basically having nothing they could eat. Be sure to check the menu options if you book ahead!

    The food here is average. We come here for the environment. The service was good, especially since we came with a child who had some food sensitivities so they were good at providing a backup.
