Customer Service was terrible. We had a reservation for 2 people at 6:30 but we didn't get a chef until 8:00 there was another family siting at our table as well so it was a total of 5 people. I looked around and noticed that people who sat down after us received service before we did. We had to wait for our drinks because they didn't have any clean glasses. How does a restaurant like this that require a reservation run out of clean glasses? Our waiter which was a new guy was terrible. After he brought our drinks and salad we never saw him again. The manager brought our ticket to pay and started rushing us after we waited almost 2 hours to eat I guess because they still had people waiting to be seated it was 9:00 at this point. Never again.

The cook took 40 minutes to come and start cooking. I couldn’t believe it. This has never happened before. I was so upset. I won’t be back for a while

I was surprised how the host/possible manager allowed 2 ladies a seat ahead of us after he asked for if they had reservations they said no he said he had to seat his 6 o’clock reservations first but for some reason decided to seat them and when he returned to find I had a reservation I had to sit and wait to be seated. I’ve always been told to wait until reservations sat first. He seems new because I’ve not seen him there before. Other than a longer wait than normal, everything else was ok

My zucchini and onions were burnt. It was disappointing. And the cook didn’t put on a show. No interaction at all. I won’t be back for a while.

Benihanas never fails to please. The food is always fantastic, the chef was awesome and entertaining. I had a birthday coupon for my meal and selected the Hibachi beef filet as did my partner. We were served the soup, salad, entrée and shrimp while watching the chef prepare it. The hostess-Karen- was so awesome, she was pleasant, friendly and helpful. She seated us and took my Sushi order. I ordered the Las Vegas roll which was delicious and was served quickly. Karen also was serving the other guest and making everyone laugh. She went out of her way refilling my water and checking on us while also waiting on the other tables. It had been an extremely busy night but Karen remained calm and very pleasant. We had selected the Hibachi service and knew it usually takes time for each chef to prepare the meals at each table, so when you go, be patient, as there usually is a wait for your chef. I would still rank this Benihanas a 10+ even with the wait.

I always love going to Benihana’s. Especially now, since my wife has a gluten allergy. They were so accommodating and caring due to her allergy. They didn’t make us feel like an inconvenience at all and wanted to make sure we had a great experience. To top it off, the food was tremendous. Large portions, great seasoning.

Took my grandchildren and it was a great experience for them and for me. Entertaining and fun. The food is delicious. They sang to the birthday boy and gave him ice cream with a candle. They are very safety conscious and followed all the restrictions and guidelines which made the experience even better.

When you book a reservation for 6:30 pm 2 weeks in advance I don’t think that you are seated 25 minutes later when the place isn’t even busy. Then on top of that the service was horrible waited another 20 minutes after seated to place our order. Couldn’t even get refills. Will not be going back.

Hibachi chef Sasan tends to overcook the hibachi rice and doesn’t cook or distribute the correct portions according to your order. I ordered the Benihana trio and received 3 shrimp total. I have only been disappointed when he has cooked table side. Other than that..it was ok.
