Our waitress wasn’t the best we never received refills she was barely around but we did enjoy our meal and the company at our table but service was way off but the waiter at the table next to us was great from what we could see also our guest that sat with us had to get up and go find her the costumer service on her half was horrible but I would come back just would not suggest her as a waitress

My husband and I had a great time at Benihana for our date night! We arrived early for our reservation and were able to sit at the bar in the meantime. The service there was ok. The hostess let us know when we could come to our table and we had a lovely meal. The food was great (more than enough to eat!!) and we enjoyed the people we sat with as well.

Excellent! I've never has a hibachi experience, and our chef and server were great. The food was delicious and well worth the price for a 5-course meal. We also had sushi for an appetizer and the banana tempura for dessert. Everything was excellent. Will come back for another special occasion.

We had a great time at this restaurant! It was the first time we were there and we will definitely be back. We wanted a place to take her three grandchildren-a kid friendly restaurant and this one fits the bill. Not only did my grandchildren love the food but also the entertainment that goes along with the preparation and serving of the food at the table. They did a great job!

Went with the kids for my wife's birthday. We had a very attentive server and the chef was great - personable, funny, entertaining. My only issue was the cost of the kids beverages. $3.50 for club soda is a little insulting, so is $4.00 for lemonade. Also the pricing on the receipt did not match the menu pricing - only off by a little but still annoying that it was incorrect. No problem getting it corrected but still we shouldn't have to watch receipts that closely. Otherwise it was a fun night and we'll be back - but the kids can have water this time - hopefully there is no charge for that!

Very disappointed with the food, getting our order correct the first time, table chef was off his game - missing multiple food tosses. I had 7 guests and didn't like having 4 guests (2 children, 2 adults) added to the table. There was no room for the plates so they had to stay near the hot surface so most of the meal spilled trying to get it from the plate to be eaten.

Everything tasted the same. Less options than other teppanyaki places in the area. Very costly; $80 for two people who ordered chicken and no alcohol. Was too loud to hear my husband or the waitress. Would not return.

The food was good but the service and atmosphere was poor. They forgot to give us our rice and only brought it at the end of our meal when we asked about it. Ice Cream came with our meal but they didn't bring it until we asked for it. The vent over the hibachi cooking table was obviously not working and smoke flowed over us the whole time the cook was cooking making me sneeze constantly. It was FREEZING in the whole restaurant and my husband went out to the car to get blankets for both of us. Ugh! The cook was ok. The food was ok. The rest of the evening was miserable for a special occasion. We are usually Benihana fans but not at this location which needs a renovation.

Went to celebrate a co-workers birthday. Service was terrible! Over $300 bill & definitely not worth it based on service we received. Had it not been such a special occasion, we would’ve walked out prior to receiving our drinks.

Benihana is always one of our favorite places to eat even though it is about 45 minutes away from home. The food and service during this trip was probably the best we've had and it was the first time we had a table to ourselves. The food was, as always, fantastic.

The worst experience ever at Benihana.
Food was good , wait was horrible. Beer glasses were dirty waitress did not speak loud enough, and ended up yelling. We were given a free hourdourv and it was cold. I'm sorry but I will not recommend your place ever...
And to let you know , we love Benihanas ...
I guess I will continue to visit Benihana in Orange county .

I would have given this 5 stars but we were celebrating my daughter's birthday and although they did come out and sing, they brought her a small bowl of WHIP CREAM! This was not an inexpensive meal and for them not to give her a scoop of ice cream or piece of cake, I was disappointed as was she. : (

The best part about Benihana is the food! It is delicious. It's always fun to have it cooked in front of you, but the taste is amazing. Never disappoints! Appetizers and Sushi are wonderful, too. I would like the service and seating to be quicker, but it's still acceptable. I always enjoy eating at Benihana!

Little over cooked than ordered, on my steak and my son's steak( med. rare), no scallops the night we went, the restaurant walls and rugs needs to be cleaned due to the cooking at the tables, you feel the grease on the surfaces. Staff friendly, foods was good my family enjoy ourselves. Chef and server were funny..
