Too noisy wait staff was distracted and talking to each other too much, napkins were dirty.

The schtick doesn't get old at this mother of all Japanese-American grills, especially if you're with kids or a group. And here's the inside scoop: The food is actually delicious.

Upon arrival, the hostess was friendly and kind. They already had the seating arranged for us, so the wait was not very long. The waitress was very nice and efficient. The chef was very entertaining and very knowledgeable. We really had fun.

food quality good.
the chef at the table pretended to be japanese but is not. probably from other india/pakistan/sri lanka origin.
very bad smell your clothes at the end of the dinner. should work on the air vents on top.
not the same benihana as was in the past at the other location. shame.
but food was good.

Worst waiter I’ve ever had. I was rude and gave me dirty looks for getting up to ask hi for our water and salad which we had been waiting for for 25 minutes

Apparently having a reservation here means nothing. Turned up to a 9pm reservation and was told we wouldn’t be seated until 1045pm at the earliest. I requested to speak to a manager and waited for 25 minutes while no one came to speak with me. All staff had attitude and a superiority complex.

Service was awful. I even had to wait 30 minutes to complain to a manager.

I had made reservations for my boyfriends birthday and wasn’t seated until a hour and fifthteen minutes after the reservation time! They asked what kind of rice did we want, my boyfriend said white and I said fried. The cook started cooking and was very confused about everyone’s order. He kept placing the wrong items on people’s plate. My boyfriend didn’t get his white rice until the cook was finished cooking, he didn’t even notice! The cook also fried the rice and gave everyone there’s except for me, I told him I was supposed to have fried rice and the waiter then came over to debate with me about what kind of rice I ordered! No one tried to accommodate me so I didn’t eat the meal. The birthday singing celebration that you all do for birthdays didn’t happen and his birthday dinner was ruined!!!!! This was our first time coming to Benihana and it was horrible! I do not plan on returning or referring anyone.
