    Disappointed. We were expecting somewhat of a performance by the chef which did not happen. They asked if anyone was celebrating an occasion and a young man at our table was celebrating his birthday. There was no acknowledgment of his birthday. They rushed the checks and while we were paying asked our grandsons “did you want your ice cream?” It was obvious they wanted us out of there. No one was offered the dessert/ice cream that comes with the meal. The server seemed annoyed when we asked for water with our meal. Overall the experience was very disappointing especially for the cost. Recommend Saga which is a much better experience. We will not be back to Benihana.

    Food was good except for the big onions in my fried rice. Which I think is way over priced. 6 dollars for a side of fried rice after I already got a 40 dollar meal. Insane. It should be included or leas than 3 bucks. And they changed the scallops on the land and sea and u get little bay scallops now which aren't the same. Staff nice and service good but company trying to make horrible cuts tf a on product.

    Best meal we have had (Minus the chef being all business but for us it was not an issue). Jeff is the best server we have had at our numerous trips to Benihana; Very personable, kept checking on us, and made us feel welcomed.

    There was no “experience” At all…The only thing the chef did was the onion volcano, literally nothing else to make it a hibachi experience. The food was decent but mediocre at best (while also upcharging to get fried rice instead of white rice) very expensive for a pretty ordinary meal and time.

    The restaurant was experiencing a high number of reservations and was understaffed for the number of customers. The chef wouldn’t give us saki because there was a kid at our table, even though the kid wasn’t part of our group. There wasn’t much “show” to the dinner. We waited about 20 minutes before receiving our soup and salad after waiting about 30 minutes for a table. It just wasn’t a good night for the Benihana.

    The food was good and getting out with the family was good but the service was not good. Our chef was fine but our waitress was apparently not in a good mood. I realize that she could have been busy but she was definitely irritated. We did not get everything we asked for and even when we did get what we needed, it was not in a timely fashion. I do not like to leave bad reviews but this was one of our worst visits to Benihana's in a while. We were celebrating a birthday and there was no acknowledgement other that the waitress taking the birthday certificate at the beginning. I don't think our table would have gotten the ice cream at the end if we would not have asked. That being said, our son went again a few days later and had a MUCH better experience.

    First. We were celebrating our anniversary and asked to be placed with others so we could have a lively celebration. We were placed with a couple with their 4 children whose ages were 6-12 years old. Mind you we left our children at home!! Our server was excellent. The food was delicious. Our chef Fernando was a dead fish!! I don’t know if he spoke English other than the script that goes with the meal. Very very dissatisfied with our experience. No joking around no anything just boring. $175.00 for a good meal. Could have gone to Morton’s for dinner and had a good meal and No entertainment. Very disappointed.

    Upon entering the restaurant the renovations look nice. I was excited for my birthday dinner with my best friend, which I noted on my reservation. We got sat at one of the newer stations close to the kitchen doors. The waitress took our order, brought the salads out first, which we thought was odd and out of order. I'm a person who has food allergies to egg and shellfish, so they made my meal in the back. They haven't done that in the past but I appreciated the sentiment. However, I didn't get to enjoy watching the chef make my food, which is part of what you pay the premium for. In fact, it was 10 minutes after everyone else at the table was eating their completed dinners before mine came. The steak was overcooked, the zucchini was undercooked and lacked seasoning, and I got no onions. I got about 5 scallops with my Land and Sea dinner, with fried rice without the egg, for a total of almost $50! The manager took 25% off for the wait. No one acknowledged my birthday, offered to take our picture, and we didn't get any green tea offered. The server was pleasant but running from table to table, very busy. The place was packed for a Thursday in December. I didn't say anything further at the restaurant as I was starving and didn't want to risk upsetting the chef in the kitchen. Everyone was looking at me still eating, the server rushed our ice cream, and was really slow at filling our drinks and pre-bussing our table. To say the least I am disappointed, and I usually look forward to having a nice dinner for my birthday. Let's just say next year I might make another dining decision. This was NOT worth the money paid for the food and service offered.

    There were 4 birthdays at our table. Usually they ask if you want a picture taken, they didn’t. Usually they ask if anyone wants tea (which is included in the price of the meal). They didn’t. Usually they put on a show but the habachi chef seemed so bored with his job & did it so many times (you could tell he had the skill) that he we unenthusiastic & did the bare minimum. I think for the price you pay, I was expecting a little more. Sure I got $30 off but there was 3 of us & with drinks still paid well over $100.

    No fountain drinks. Out of preferred juices that were listed to us. Folks that made a quiet, passive aggressive scene about having to share a table with us because we had kids. Service took ages to begin.

    Sat 45 min before server even came to get drink order. 2 tables next to us who were seated after we were had all of their food before we even got our soup and salad. Had to ask another waitress for more water as our waitress was no where to be found most of the evening. After almost 3 hours we finished eating.

    We eat here a lot! Apparently they were so busy that they ran out of some items and had to purchase their shrimp from a back-up vendor. The shrimp was not good. They also had an issue with their soda machine….no soda, no iced tea….only served water and alcohol. Very disappointed. They should have told us in advance about the shrimp (when we ordered) and we would have ordered something else. “Note to self” in future. Also, the price is starting to spiral out of control. Will think twice before returning.

    Delicious food! We went during the big Christmas Freeze and they still were able to provide fast and efficient service while honoring our reservation. The soda lines had froze, so no soda and the bathrooms were cold. Everything else was spot on. I'd definitely go back.

    Went here on Christmas and unfortunately will not be back. People were right when they say the carpet is need of a deep clean. While i knew the fried rice was an upcharge, what they don't tell you is that it is chicken fried rice and it adds $5.70 to each person's meal. That still wasn't the biggest deal, but my daughter got the kids chicken fried rice and they still added and upcharge for chicken fried rice on our bill for her. The kids upcharge was the same as the adults which is also odd. We didn't need chicken added to our rice, we could barely eat our entree with all of that extra. Our chef did not put on a show, which was disappointing. The most he did was make a huge fire at the beginning. The chef at a table across from ours started well before our chef did and he was still cooking a bit after our chef left, and both tables were full. Our waiter was good and stayed on top of filling our drinks despite a packed restaurant so kudos to him. We will not go back. There's other better hibachi restaurants out there.

    Our waitress was horrible. We have done Benihana for Christmas the last 2 years and the service at those times was outstanding. This time was horrible. I swear our waitress was the most miserable person on the planet. Never checked on us the poor chef had to clear our plates, get napkins, etc. Also, the restaurant could use a freshening up. Was not the cleanest. Don’t know if we’d go back again. Even though the food was still really good.
