Celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. No bathrooms, they became out of order. They asked if we wanted to eat somewhere else because of it and of course that would ruin our entire celebration so we stayed. Food service felt rushed. Not told about upcharge on rice, just asked which we wanted. Cook kept looking over his shoulder and was unprepared with food and unpersonable. Acted like he had to do the tricks and rushed through the ones he forgot at the end. We spent over $100 and for the price, not worth it. Looked at my plate at one point and it just looked like slop. Barely any veggies and just not worth the $30 a plate. Being it was our first anniversary, we just ate and left and just wanted to try to spend our time together and ignore the fact dinner was less than mediocre. Will not recommend.

The food was spectacular. Our Chef was accommodating friendly and funny. Upon reaching the restaurant, we were seated quickly. Everything moved quickly from there. Drinks were flowing freely until our chef left our table. Then drinks stopped. Our wait staff seem to rush out the door. She even tried to give us food containers within minutes of receiving our final aspect of our meal.

Overall the food was great service was very good however it is a bit pricey for an average dinner out for four people. If you're bringing your kids this will be an expensive meal.

Honestly we have been to this Benihana's many times the last two times have been disappointing our waiter cooked our food ok but not entertaining at all forgot the onion volcano until the very last and I think that's because he heard us say he didn't do that the shrimp tails didn't make it in his hat just very disappointing if it had been our first visit to a Benihana's it would definitely be our last but we know it is usually better than this

i Think they need have small tables for smaller groups, for example if we want to enjoy a dinner with my wife and kid, we need to split always with more peoples and we never can have a family dinner, or maybe have the option even if we need to pay a fee to have the table just for your group maybe starting from 4 or 5

Food was not all that good. I waitied for a cook and they sent out a Haitian guy no offense but a Asian restaurant should have someone again cooking right?

It was a wonderful meal- our cook and waiter were fantastic. I was disappointed in the wait, however, and it has been a problem on several visits. If I make reservations several weeks in advance, I don't feel a 25-30 minute wait is appropriate. I think the restaurant needs to work on their scheduling issues.

The experience was cool the only issue that I will address is,if you have reservations A table should be available when you come . If your a walk in then the walk in would have to wait for the next available table

Seating was delayed for about 15 min despite reservations. Service was a bit chaotic, particularly coordination between waitress and chef. Food was generally good, except for the sauces, which I found to be bland. Noise level was disturbingly loud, particularly the birthday singing. The high point was the free valet parking, which was rapid and courteous. I had not been to a Behihana restaurant for over 20 years. The food and ambience has declined significantly from a high end dining experience to an adequate but pedestrian meal.

First the good. The hibachi cook was great.

Overall the food was bland. They charge an extra $3.95 per person for fried rice.

Service was ok at best. No comparison to Fuji Grill, which remains our favorite.

This was 2nd time to Benihana and we chose not to return.

Restaurant was kept very cold. We felt like we were dining with penguins. I’m sure they were trying to accommodate chefs that were cooking on hibachi grills.

We had a reservation for 630 and they didn't seat us until 7:10. They had no remorse. Didn't care that we were waiting. The food was great but our kids were cranky. They could have offered drinks or apps or something for us having to wait for 40 min past our reservations. We gave them s verbal options to make things better but they didn't care.

We had Chef Le. He was excellent. I have not been pleased with Chefs we’ve had in the past. They were not entertaining, lacked skill set for the job, and not authentic. Le was excellent, personable, knowledgeable, and overall wonderful to have as a server.

Was was less than impressed by our chef he seemed either be tired and ir new or not comfortable speaking English but was comfortable speaking Spanish to the other group at the table and ignoring us. not much of a show but got to watch all the fun at the other tables. Had a 3:30 reservation and got Sat at 4:10. I ordered white rice which came out 20 minutes before it was time to eat so it was Stone Cold

Went here, granted spring break, with a reservation for 7:45pm. Upon check in they said they were running 15-20 minutes behind and gave me a pager. Finally seated at 8:50pm! This is inexcusable!!! Many of the families also waiting had small children as I did and cannot stay up late, I made the reservation at that time because of having a small child. Food all over the floor, poor service, food just ok. Loved Bennihana's when I was a child, always went on my birthday. This was my first time back to one since there are none around my area. So sadly disappointed, glad I have a Sakura near me, they are as I remembered Bennihana's. Poorly run,, my advise, don't go.
