    We put our name in with the hostess who said it would be a few minutes and she would text us. After 45 min we checked back and her comment was oops I forgot to text you but your table is ready. The waiter was very slow and unorganized., the other table who was seated at the same time had their drinks and soup before he even took our order. The chef Marie was awesome, she cooked some of the best food we have had at a Benihana’s. Overall a decent experience but Marie (the chef) and her cooking was the only positive thing of the evening.

    Tha food was delicious as always. Both the chef and the server was really nice. However, it took an hour and ten minutes after the server bought us our soups and salads before the chef came to our table and start preparing the food. We were the first people there once the restaurant was open. My only disappointment was the wait. We never had to wait that long. Especially, if we were the first ones there. Also, two large family came in while we were waiting. They had different tables, and everyone was having a conversation across the room. The atmosphere was really loud.

    Got there at open, so nobody was there. We sat with another couple and had a good time. The waitress was outstanding. Refills were constantly filled, I drink alot of pop. Junior, the cook, did an outstanding job as well. Both couples had a birthday to celebrate and had a great time.

    The food was great but we had to wait almost an hour to be seated despite our reservation. After being seated, we still and to wait 30 minutes before we got food or a chef. For an 8 pm reservation, we didn’t get out of there until 11 pm and most of that time was waiting for service.

    The waitress complained from the minute we were seated. It was 9:15 pm and she stayed “please hurry and order…we are tired and want to go home”. In addition, we are out of chicken, Salmon and french fries. Very disappointing experience. Will not return.

    Had 7pm reservations, was seated a few minutes after 7, Server took our drink orders and food orders, that was the good part of our visit! Drinks and soup and salad were served. Now waiting for cook to arrive to prepare meal, never showed up, it’s now 8pm, our table decided we were not going to wait any longer, no info from anyone as to when our cook would arrive, we all left and went home . Will never return again, someone should have kept us upto date as to why we had to wait so long!!!!!!

    We came for a birthday and they knew that and ignored the 2YO. No song, nothing. The 40YO lady sharing the table got a song and Ice Cream. Chef was ok and couldn’t get a drink refill from the waiter without flagging him down.

    Grace was a wonderful person that helped get us in earlier than our 9:15 reservation Waiting for our table I heard someone call my name as I approached she told these customers waiting ‘we’ll I guess they don’t want their table’! I overheard her and told her ‘yes I do’! She was very embarrassed that I overheard her. As far as the rest of our service our waitress was awesome, the chef was awesome and the food has never disappointed.

    We had a 5:30 reservation and had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. The reception desk was not friendly and kept saying give us a couple more minutes when I started asking how long. Upon being seated at the table we gave the information to a manager who allowed our two friends to come in With us when another couple refused the table due to our service dog. The waiter and chef made up for the front issues with spectacular service and food. Great show by the chef for dinner as well.

    Awful, weird, bizarre. The server came to take our drink order and immediately took our food order. Fine. However, he creeped us out so much: the other mom even commented that the guy was lookin at their teenage daughter “way too much.” Then 15 minutes later, no drinks and another server came and took our orders again. Super weird . 10 minutes later- drinks appear from the first weirdo guy. Um ok. Dinner “show” we came for was not a show at all. Even when other tables got a nice show with fire and so on. Bo.ring! Drinks and sauces stayed empty entire dinner time. To celebrate my kids birthday they didn’t really acknowledge it at all except taking a horrible picture. Didn’t complain because it was free but really? Only One person was looking. Talked to the manager and he said he’d take care of dinner for us: came back and only took off $20 off of a large check. The whole experience was so unprofessional, weird and bizarre. Guess we’re never coming back. Sad for them since we’re locals.

    We went for our son’s birthday. That’s our favorite place for our birthdays. The food was great, as always, but I thought the amount of food is less then it used to be. Second problem - poor service. After we seated, it took ONE HOUR to start service. Also I think the chef that came to our table was a bit impatient. I don’t know if they are short staffed and was at night so he might be tired.
