    The smoke from the grill was blowing in our face. My five year old son had to switch seats to keep from coughing. The chef we had was nice but she burned the rice and shrimp. We have never had this experience with chef David lee

    My only bad experience ever at Benihana. A very particular customer rattled the chef with his demands on how his food was prepared. This caused the food for the rest of the people at the table to be affected. Food was over cooked and had very little flavor. Very disappointing.

    The cook we had tonight was not personable and rushed. He had rice flying all over grill and table. Rice and veggies were lightly seasoned bland. I did not enjoy this visit at all.

    The service is not what it used to be. I asked for a fork 4 different times. Salad-no fork! Not sure why I wasn’t given a fork initially at the beginning of the restaurant visit. The food was tasty. This won’t be my Anniversary choice going forward.

    We ordered the steak and shrimp dinner which was to include Japanese green tea and sherbet. No one at our table was offered either of these. My husband asked for the tea and they did bring it to him. I asked for water with my meal, assuming the tea would be offered later. As soon as the chef finished, a waitress brought to-go boxes. I felt very rushed - like they wanted us out so they could rush in 8 more people. It was our first visit and I suppose we didn’t know what to expect. The food was excellent, but I would have appreciated more time to savor it and then enjoy tea and dessert. As it happened, most of my meal was boxed up to bring home. I would like to try it again, but not sure I would recommend it until I know if it was jus an “off” night.

    We waiting almost 30 minutes for a table and we had a reservation! Waitress was fairly quick to take our orders, but we never received our sushi we had to ask for it and she said she forgot and that we would have to take it to go as they was getting ready to close and when we opened it later it was definitely not what we ordered or payed for! The Hibachi was good but nothing spectacular, very similar to other hibachi restaurants!

    Sat at "table 5" where the exhaust fan didn't work. It was MISERABLE smoke, and it was a birthday celebration. We were coughing and fanning. It was a bit disappointing since we had made reservations and they could have sat us at a different table to begin with. Our chef and waiter were amazing and the food was great, but that smoke nearly killed us. My daughter had to go out to the car to retrieve her inhaler it was so bad. I would recommend to a friend, as long as it wasn't at that table. Would highly recommend chef David and waiter Q.
