Our food was fantastic! Chef Tito is incredible at his job. Our toddler had a scary experience at another hibachi restaurant but the "show" at Benihana keeps the flash and fire at a much less threatening level while still being captivating.

If you have never been to Benihana, it's worth noting that the restaurant will strive to seat guests at full tables of 8 as much as possible. There are a limited number of chefs and seating parties adjacent to each other around one hibachi grill ensures the quickest service. This was a source of special joy this visit as we met some fine people and had great conversation. Cross-table conversation becomes difficult once the grill starts to sizzle.

Perhaps open carry of a weapon is legal but I definitely felt uncomfortable with another person at our table carrying a gun in a restaurant with children and families trying to enjoy dinner. He was aggressive and promoting conservative websites, attempted to sell us sleeping pills and talked non-stop for an hour and 15 minutes. It was late and I didn't want to agitate the guest further by moving but Benihana may want to consider a gun policy for people who are not police officers - the guy was a construction worker not private security or an officer of the law.

Food was amazing. My only complaint was that we were celebrating a birthday and the server did nothing special. I told her 3 times it was a Birthday (and we had presents on the table) and not even a candle in the icecream we ordered for her.

I feel that Benihana is more pricey than other hibachi restaurants that I have been to. Also when we leave we need to go home and change our cloths because we smell like smoke. I have been to other hibachi places and don't leave smelling like grill and smoke. That should be addressed in this restaurant.

while I enjoy the restaurant and return here every year for my birthday dinner, this year the wait time was just way too long. we were seated quickly, then had all of our sushi/starters came to the table efficiently as well. it then took an HOUR before our chef was at the table to cook. there was grumbling from all at the table and the chef did his best to apologize and cook as quickly as he could but it wasn't his fault or responsibility to make up for someone else's lack of scheduling or planning. I made a reservation to ensure that I wouldn't be sitting and waiting an undue amount of time for a table or my dinner and somehow, that still happened.

We go for dinner on special occasions and we love it . Even though you're seated with people that are strangers the conversation flows. The chefs are fun and the food is quite good. My special drink is plum sake sangria and I always have at least one before dinner. Twin lobster tail is my favorite menu item and I often buy a pint of their shrimp sauce and salad dressing yuuum.

We went for my husbands birthday. Very entertaining. Hubby has a seafood allergy so his food was cooked first before any shell fish touched the grill. Kudos to the chef for accommodating us and our food was fresh, hot, and seasoned well.

Waitress was kind of pushy at times. She Seemed frustrated when you asked her to repeat herself. All the food in the trio was really bland lacking any real flavor. The up charge for the fried rice was rediculous. The overall bill was way to high!!! I will not recommend this place to anyone and will not be back.
