They did a great job with our volleyball team. The cooks were not as energetic as we are accustomed to but it was a good time.

I think that your reservation per table should say how many people it can really fit. We had reserved for 12 people. We had 11 show up and they put us all at one table when we could have sat around the two more comfortable. Needed to know that one table would only fit like 6 or 8 comfortable. Also need to take into consideration people who are over weight may need more room.

First time here. The server(not sure of name) sat us and instantly asked for drink/appetizer orders, wanted to rush everything, appetizers were delivered to wrong people at the table and not corrected until end of meal and still not correct.
The chef guy Rogelio was very friendly and very entertaining the food he prepared was awesome.

Standard issue turn and burn orchestration of food service. Server was personable// charming , one table mate outgoing and sociable, the other four mainly catatonic and out of their element (outside the house)..
The Chateaubriand was the hit as well as a good well-chilled pour of NZ Sav Blanc.

My wife and I go here around valentine's day each year. It may not be a typical romantic restaurant but it is our tradition.

We both love the food and the variety or combinations or options. This last time she had the filet mignon and shrimp and absolutely loved it. The meat was very tender and cooked perfectly and the shrimp was huge.

Sometimes it can be a little hard to hear the server but it is overall a really fun, energetic, dining experience.

We love Benihana’s! Love the atmosphere, and the chicken fried rice. Definitely on the pricier side but worth it perfect for special occasions date nights.

We chose this restaurant because it was my grandson's 17th birthday and that's where he wanted to go. We had a great time, the food was delicious, the service was great, the chef was entertaining and it wasn't a million dollars. We will be going again.

Very good food, friendly service. A little noisy but it’s a small space with many people. I wonder if the sushi downstairs area could be converted into more seating? I don’t see too many people there, it’s on the first floor and with the higher ceilings i think the noise level would be less. Just a thought

It seems like ownership is treating Benihana as a cash-cow. What used to be a unique dining concept (with "all you can eat" cocktail shrimp at the salad bar) is now a run-of-the-mill hibachi-style restaurant. Interior needs updating.... the grills need a good cleaning. Not impressed.

Eating at Benihana's in Salt Lake City, UT is an anticipated trip for any occasion! We travel from Logan, UT an hour and a half and it is always well worth the drive! We appreciated the consistent quality service and food.

When to Benihana for for dinner before a school dance. I was an awesome experience. Loved watching our food being cooked right in front of me and being served immediately. Overall, had a great time.

The overall experience went well. However, the chef was not very good. He cooked the food well, and to our specifications but for the price of everything, I'd expect the chef to be a little bit more "on his game". Seemed like he could care less about working that day.
