Very rushed waitress. Kept asking my friend to pass her dirty dishes while she was eating. Food quality has gone downhill. Chicken was rubbery. I think they’ve tried to be more health conscience, but the food lacked flavor. Not their fault, but very loud. Sat us next to a table of 8 screeching little girls, so that didn’t help. Hadn’t been in years, so was very disappointed. Used to be so good.

Not sure what has changed or perhaps something was not cleaned or proper temperature, but I was extremely ill within 1.5 hours after leaving. Not only had stomach illness, but also horrible headache afterwards. Will never come back.

Our server was not only not well versed in the menu. She smelled as though she had never heard of deodorant. She man handled out soup and salad and put her finger in every single bowl. I’m not sure if this type of work is for her but, she needs retraining to say the least. For $97 for two which included a tip it’s not a value and you can find better teppanyaki elsewhere!

I feel that Beni Hana is on an upturn--they were struggling for a bit and now it seems that they got some good help and it is working for them! We had Tommy as our chef and Andrew as our server and together they made a great team! Would highly recommend.

Front desk was very friendly. Got sat quickly. Waitress was not around too much. Food was good, but way too much butter than the average Hibachi. Our clothes smelled like butter when we got home. Good, but not great. Casual dining place.

The restaurant was unbearably hot - I went to the manager on several occasions when I started feeling ill from the heat with no resolve. Finally on the way out was told they had issues with a compressor but out dinner was ruined nobody could even finish Because of the circumstance
Very upset 250 dinner ruined for my sons birthday with family visiting from out of town.

Brought my grandson and his brother for his 18th birthday. It was his choice, the drive was a little distance but anything for grandkids. Felt a little rushed with everything but all in all was ok.

Everything was very organized. The food portions we're large, but deliscious! The waiter was great, but the chef was amazing & showed some skilled "tricks" with the spatulas & cooking utensils. There was plenty to take home also. It was well worth the time & experience.

We hadn't been to Benihaha in quite a while. We decided to revisit for a family birthday. We found the portions to be much smaller than in the past and the prices higher. And, for some of us the combination Hibachi platters that we wanted were only available with a dessert option added on. Since we had birthday cake at home, we didn't want the ice cream. The biggest disappointment was the "birthday celebration"....which was literally a single birthday candle handed to the birthday person. Why bother?! We probably will not return.

Great food with a chef who kept the table mesmerized by his skills. He was very engaging and kept all of the guests engaged as well. The food was outstanding, and the portions as always are very big, we took home a carry-out and ate and enjoyed day 2 as well!

Unfortunately the food made us both sick. The steak was undercooked and I watched the Chef use the apatchula on the mushrooms he was cooking with the meat I was served. The manager brought me a new meal, but it was too late. I'd already taken a bite of the undercooked meat. I want be returning unfortunately. I normally love benihana but this one not so much.

We have been to better Benihana locations. Food was fair. Chef was not a showman at all. waitress needs more training. overall nothing horrible but he have had better Benihana experiences in Florida.

Very disappointed- the guys who cooked did no performance- the waitress was terrible- the steak was so small mostly fat - poor quality- the noodles were terrible- the only good was the soup. The salad had brown lettuce- sushi was good.
Will not be back here ever

Food was at best OK ! Very little seasoning and way over cooked veggies.

Chief was so tattooed, looked as if he just got out of a long stay in jail.

Not the Benihana I once loved !
