Very good food and most entertaining! The chicken fried rice is excellent.
Mother’s Day dinner. Food was amazing and our cook was fun!
This place is very hard to find especially at night. We drove around the block 3-4 times before we saw a little sign on the sidewalk. It is behind a bunch of other buildings and there is no lighted street sign to help. The food and everything else was very good.
I made reservations for my husband's birthday dinner at this location. We were in town visiting from another state and were happy to find a Benihana there. We don't have one in the area we live in. I used a birthday certificate for this dinner and it was great. Everything was great, food, service and the birthday ice cream. It's a popular place so it was a bit noisy but we still enjoyed our dinner date there.
AMAAAAZING!!! Delicious!!!! FUN!!! cooked perfectly!!! MY FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH!!!!!!!
It took 45 min for the chef to come to the table!
Dinner at Benihana was very entertaining and also delicious. This is one of my favorite places to go out for fun on a first date.
Food was delicious! We had a wonderful time. Our chef was very entertaining! Always enjoy this place.
Our waitress was lovely. Our chef was fun. The front desk customer service was rude. We came in to celebrate our sons birthday and weren’t able to use the kids birthday program (even though we had signed up) because we hadn’t receive confirmation yet. We didn’t know it could take up to 2 weeks. We thought the restaurant would be accommodating but they were not. In fact they were dismissive and rude. It wasn’t a busy night. It’s not like they didn’t have the ability to make a little effort but they had a very ‘could care less’ attitude. It could have put a huge damper on the night because our son was excited to get some special attention and a birthday mug, but fortunately our waitress was nice and our cook was entertaining and our son is super easy going. Over-all had a fun time but probably won’t be back to celebrate special occasions any time soon.
Food was good but it was not Covid conscious and sat multiple parties at the same cooktop.
Was fantastic as usual!
Great night. Food is a little pricy but it’s worth it for once in a while.
Service was terrible. Never did get rice. (Pretty basic part of our meal) Never had our water (our only drink) refilled in the 90 minutes we were at the table. Didn’t see our waitress for at least 30 minutes, then when we asked for check, after 15 minutes, we had to ask the manager for it. Filets were fatty. Cook was fun and enjoyable, but that was it. We’ve gone to this restaurant 10-15 times and this was by far the worst experience even giving everyone a break for issues with covid in the world. Sad.
Had a great birthday dinner for our daughter!
Server seemed new. Could have been better
First and last time for me. Everything took longer than normal, they comped everyone a free appetizer which was nice but it didn’t make up for waiting 1.5 hours for the main course. Everything else was so/so, nothing too exciting or different from our local, non-high end hibachi restaurant.
Excellent place to celebrate with my family! So good!
Everything was great as usual. We had a great time celebrating a birthday.
Honestly, disappointing visit this time. We go to this location about 2 or 3 times a year but this time around we must have had a new chef. She struggled through the preparation of the food. I felt bad for her so we didn’t say anything but for $150+ meal, I didn’t walk away as happy as I normally do. Steak and shrimp was as good as always, but the noodles and rice were way off and didn’t taste the same. I’ll go again. This was the first time we have gone that were left a little unimpressed. Everyone has an off day, guess we were there to witness it this time.
Wonderful experience. Great food.
My family and I have eaten at Benihana before and it was great. The food, service, everything. This resent visit didn't meet the expectations from our previous visit. The steak wasn't season well, it lacked flavor. I don't know if he used the garlic butter or regular butter. We also got a few plates with food residue. It was busy that day, full house. I would recommend Benihana on the weekday if its not as busy as the weekends.
One of our favorites place to dine in at always good with everything! And Chef O’brien Is our favorite!!!
We sat and waited on our 9:30 reservation time for about 30 minutes. We started noticing people coming in for their 10 pm time. When we asked about how long the wait might be we were told we “were already seated” lol. The girl seemed very confused and told us to go ask someone else what we should do. She was the hostess and had a headset to talk to managers. The rest of the experience was “ok”.
The food was very good, the ambiance fun and the price felt just right for what we received.
We were seated in a timely manner and ordered quickly. Refills were super fast. Our chef, I think his name was Orian, was friendly and funny and everything was cooked perfectly.
We celebrated my birthday here and had an absolute wonderful time. They were able to get us in sooner than our original reservation and had great service, an awesome show of talent from our chef, and amazingly delicious food. Highly recommend this place!
I used to love this place. It’s really went downhill this past year.
Fun dining with gluten free options for those with celiac disease. The chef “show” adds to the celebratory vibe.
Everything was great ,the young lady who served us was amazing
Great atmosphere and service. A little pricey but worth a special occasion such as a birthday.
Great food! had a wonderful birthday dinner with my boyfriend and his family!
Celebrated a birthday and it was delicious!
Didn’t live up to most Benihana location experienced. Chef was great, but service was subpar unfortunately. Probably won’t go back to this one.
Jose our chef was awesome and kept our table entertained the entire time!
It had been a few decades since the last visit to Benihana. It was a great experience this time, the food was excellent. The only down side was the time it took for our meals. It was an unusually busy night according to the chef. All in all, a great time was had by all. We intend to return soon...
The waitress, chef and food were awesome! The only bad thing was that we sat at the table for an hour before the chef came.
Amazing as always! The food, the entertainment, the service, always top notch!
I had never been to Benihana and was very excited to go for the first time. Not exactly what I was expecting, as it was more crowded than I expected and super noisy. But it was fantastic. The food was delicious and Ramon, our Chefertainer for the evening was amazing!
Ordered the Emperor something or other, it was DELICIOUS. And the sherbet for dessert was honestly the best. Loved our cook, he was super funny and made the whole thing an incredible experience!
If you are a table of 2 plan on waiting over an hour to be helped. Our chef was inexperienced and things flew across the grill on numerous occasions. The orders were incorrect and then our food burned when he left the table 4+ times to correct things. Do not recommend!
