    The chef didn’t do any of the standard show you go to Benihana for. It was like just watching a line cook prepare a meal. We drove over an hour to enjoy the experience, was very disappointing.

    I mentioned in our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday but there was no candle or show. I figure when you pay about $30-$40 a plate, you’re paying for the showmanship of the chef as well. Our filet mignon was served rare but we ordered a higher temp. I’m just surprised at this particular dinner. My kids look forward to their birthdays here but there wasn’t anything special about this dinner. It was like any other Wednesday.

    The cook didn’t talk much, not much of a show, just get the food cooked and get out of there. I could be wrong but didn’t you used to have two sauces, cook just asked if we wanted some kinda sauce or yum yum sauce

    Steak was definitely past medium, and a bit tough compared to times I've been there in the past. Price has gone up, as have most restaurants. But the increase here puts it past what I want to pay, even for a special occasion meal. $150 for a family of 4 is a bit steep! And that's not even with any sushi or alcohol...

    Server took too long to get drinks and get salads, soup. Then the cook comes out and cooks chicken and rice that was dry and unseasoned. Waited what seemed like 30 minutes after asking for a refill. After returning home, me and my wife were sick. Definitely would not recommend when there are plenty of good hibachi restaurants in the area.

    We ordered specialty entrees, bill came and to go boxes. But no ice cream or sherbert was given, or even offered, and the menu says it came with the meal. For as much as charged, it's not right and it said included. Also, Reservation was for birthday, no special birthday song done. But 4 other tables had it done to them.

    Steak was to b well done not burnt, strawberry lemonade was syrup to sweet rice was little salty and grilled onions was hard. All meats was cooked with same spatula and I can’t eat shrimp. There was shrimp chicken and steak on grill. He didn’t wipe after using on each meat. We spent a lot of money it was 6 of us.

    Chef messed up and added spicy sauce to 3 peoples rice who did not ask for it, and then overcooked the steak and chicken to where it was not as pleasant as it usually is. Overall very tasty still, and a good dinner with friends. Just small areas we all can improve in. We will return soon. Thanks.
