Had a reservation for 9:45 but did not end up sitting until 10:30 which I did not appreciate. Even though I was seated at 10:30, the cooking didn't begin until 10:45 or later. We did not end up leaving the restaurant until around midnight which is actually an hour past the time that they closed.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our dinner was to celebrate my Mom’s birthday and she has a shellfish allergy. They cooked the shellfish last. She enjoyed her birthday dinner.

Manny was our Chef and he seasoned the food extra for us at our request. Food and dessert we're delicious. Prices just seem a bit higher than similar hibachi style eateries. Overall, the experience was pleasant.

Was there for a birthday party, felt safe and the place was clean and only waited 5 minutes after our reservation time. Wonderful service and cook!
Had to use iPhone to scan for menu, it's the sign of the times. Would recommend it to anyone for a safe and goodtime with friends.

The chef didn't do much of a "show" during the meal. I think he skipped a bit. The chicken was very dry. The "background" music was way too loud and server said they had no way to adjust it.

This was unfortunately one of the worst Benihana locations I have been to. I had a reservation for 12 guests for 6:45 pm. We weren't seated until after 7:45 pm. Then when they sat us they wanted us to squeeze 12 people in a the designed for 7-8. We had 4 people of our party standing. I brought my complaint up to the hosting staff and they looked at me like I was crazy. A manager came up and stated she would resolve the situation and sit us elsewhere, but we had to wait, AGAIN! I explained to her I made my reservation 3 days in advance, and clearly reservations in this restaurant are a joke. I explained how upset I was and the manager just said i am going to give you a free appetizer. Like I waited almost 2 hours when I had a reservation and this is your resolution? This restaurant management requires training on proper customer service and organization. Benihana is a great restaurant but this location is a disappointment to their name. I hope this review actually achieves a purpose and that this l restaurant fixes their wrong doings.
