    Horrible! Even with reservations I had to wait 45 mins to be seated. Then by the time you order and the chef prepares the items to cook and then cooks, you’re looking at another 1 hour. Our reservations were for 9:30pm seated by 10:15pm ate dinner after 11pm. When I asked the hostess why do I have to wait 45 mins when I have reservations, response was the reservations is just to secure you a seat, not that you will be seated at this time. Never again. My time is valuable!

    To he food was way too salty. The waitress was so slow the family next to us left. If you go there ask for reduced salt and complain if the server is too slow. The waitress came out after the family left and asked us if she was too slow. People go to a restruant to eat, not to wait. It was the husbands birthday and their first time so they lost a family due to horrible service. The chef who prepared our food was outstanding. The chicken was perfect, the lobster was wonderful and the steak was tender and cooked how I asked. It is extremely rare to find a place that cooks your steak how you like and is tender. The reason I would recommend Benihana is you get your food cooked properly, how you would like it all done in front of you. We paid $222 for 4 adults, an outstanding price in today's economy. We did not have any alcholic drinks. 8-14-22

    After 47 minutes all we had received was our soup and salad , were told we would have a chef after an additional 10 minutes , so we walked. Miraculously our chef was available as we were getting up but we still left.

    Phil was the best chef I have had ever at benihana and one of the top anywhere I have been. He was good, the food was good, and the service was excellent. Low marks for value for charging extra for fired rice, and insane alcohol prices.

    Waited forty minutes for our water and Pepsi then waited another twenty minutes before we got soup/salad then another 30 minutes before the chef came out to begin cooking. Never had this experience take so long. No apology from server or management even though wait time was obvious to all.

    It took an hour for a chef to come table side. Service was good and he was great but not sure what the hold up was. Food was ok. I was expecting this to be a lot more fancier than what it was. Dining room needs to be cleaned. Bathrooms were a mess. We were there for our anniversary and it wasn’t very special.

    Came for family dinner to celebrate 15yo birthday. Waited 45 minutes tine seated, 20 minutes for drinks, 20 more for apps and then another 25 for dinner. Hibachi chef was beyond boring and offered 0 entertainment, but was polite. Our waiter was a ghost, never brought our desserts, took 15 minutes to bring our check and failed to have happy birthday sang for our daughter. I strongly suggest you avoid this location if you have kids or plan on eating on time. Very poor respect for their customers. 6:45 reservation with 3 kids and we didn’t leave till 9:20.

    Everything was great, especially the chef, he was very entertaining. Parking is minimal so when it’s busy you’ll be searching for parking space for a bit. The only negative for this visit was our takeout order for my Daughter, they didn’t give her the chicken hibachi fried rice she loves so much and we didn’t notice until she opened the bag at our hotel 😡

    My the whole experience was great until I found hair in my food. The one thing I hate about food establishments in other states is they don't require anyone to wear hats or hair nets. So you risk the food being compromised

    When seated, I asked for a new plate as it was dirty The plate I received was still the same plate. After that I was bought a fork to use for my salad that Fork still had rice in it. After that my drink finally came which was delicious but I was never offered a glass of water even though the entire rest of the table was during their meal service finally our server came back and that’s when I was able to ask for a glass of water overall my shift was amazing but the service was very subpar and I was extremely disappointed as I was celebrating my birthday.
