Server seemed agitated and was rude to the guests at our table. Seemed rushed when we ordered. Cook was awesome, saved dinner. Food was good but felt ill afterwards.

They seemed a little short staffed, and we had to wait past our reservation time. The restaurant manager bought a round of drinks for the table to make up for it. The chef was a bit slow to get there, but the soup and salad was timely enough to make it a good experience. Tuesday (the waitress) was great!

We went on Mother’s Day and it was a great experience. The food as always was yummy. I would give 5 stars but they really, really need to have better ventilation. It was so Smokey and cloudy. Other Japanese Steakhouses have better ventilation but Benihana has “cleaner” tasting food and have tremendous health department records...unlike all of the other ones around.

The chef barely spoke the whole time he was cooking. Some of my chicken was not cooked all the way. The chef did divide out the fried rice portions. There were two families at our table. Our family's rice bowls were not even full but the other family's bowls were over flowing. Chef did not really do anything special or perform any tricks. I was celebrating my birthday and it was a let down as far as chef quality.

We are frequent guests at this restaurant. For the first time in all these years the shrimp that we ordered WAS NOT CLEANED!! This was brought to the attention of the manager on duty that night. We expected to at least get something off of our bill and was disappointed that nothing was.

My husband is a vegan and they catered to him by cooking his food in the kitchen so that it was not on the cooktop where fish and meat where prepared. My fish was great. Our grandson is a vegetarian and the chef cleaned off the cooktop before he prepared his plain noodles.
Great time. Thanks.

Prices are a bit higher compared to other hibachi; esp a $4 up charge for fried rice. We really enjoyed Ian who was our cook/entertainer; it’s evident he’s extremely experienced and very friendly. Overall it was a great experience.

Food was dry as if it had been sitting awhile.. waiter forgot our soups and forgot our ice cream desserts which we paid for.. ended up leaving without them.. waiter was nowhere to be found most of the evening.. tables near us were saying the same thing as everyone was upset over not getting something, refills, dipping sauce , etc.. we’ve eaten here before and it was great.. over all horrible experience this time.. $94 bill should come with much better service than that.. will not be recommending

Benihana is a rare treat and our last visit did not disappoint. We have been celebrating special occasions at this restaurant since long before it became a member of the Benihana chain. While the quality isn't quite what it used to be when it was simply known as "The Samurai", it's still very good. Our chef was excellent, our food was tasty, and we all enjoyed ourselves. You will, too. Celebrate your next special event here.
