We forgot to get our Benihana picture!!! And the server did not ask. I am thinking you are no longer doing photos??
Benihana never disappoints! As always the food was amazing as was the service. We are chefs table members and were able to use a birthday coupon for my husbands birthday and Benihana generously extended the expiration date. The fried rice is the best and is always amazing. The chefs are always entertaining and the wait staff was also amazing. Even dining in Covid times was an amazing experience. In fact we enjoyed it more as we were a party of 3 and had the table to ourselves where they normally seat 8. Everyone wore gloves and masks to keep their guests protected. Could not have been a better experience. Thank you to all the staff that are working in these times!
The service and food was excellent. My husband and I had a great time.
Our service and food was excellent.
Our server was very attentive and the chef did a great job. Thank you Benihana for making out dinner enjoyable!
The staff was extremely polite and attentive. We had our own table due to current indoor dining restrictions and it was pretty nice.
Food was delicious as always, our chef was fun to watch and the service was great!
Great show and wonderful service! Benihana has always been a fun place to celebrate any occasion
We celebrate our son’ birthday on Saturday. The chef was so nice and try to make a lot of different icons to please us! Will come back again!
The food was amazing. Always have the best experience when going to Benihana. If you come here to San Diego, ask for chef Conner. He is awesome and very friendly. All the staff was nice and pleasant from walking in the door and checking in to the end. Definitely going back now that it’s open again.
All was really great except for the fact that the restaurant was under going renovations and they were hammering, drilling and sawing on the other side of a wall that had an open doorway blocked by an oriental room divider. Our table was directly next to the wall. It was loud. I wouldn't expect to pay $300 for a meal for 5 and have to listen to all the banging and construction next to us. Such a bummer. We had a 1:45pm Saturday reservation.
Food and service was 5 stars. Call ahead and make sure the construction won't be happening at your dinner.
Our chef, Edwin, was OUTSTANDING! He was friendly, funny, personable and all food was delicious!
Good loved it
It was my our first time in this restaurant and it was not what I was expecting, customer service is poor , she did really help us on the menu
They charged us an extra $15.?? Had to get that removed or dude’s wasn’t getting a tip. We had reservations at 1:15, got in at 1:25, not too bad. However, the chef guy did not come to the teppan table until 2:10. Not fun entertaining kids in a restaurant while we sat and waited.
With social distancing we were out of there in an hour, usually we're looking at a 2 hour dinner. We were the only people at the table. Still got a good show, yes the same show you normally get there. We got plenty of extra fried rice.
Kyle was our Chef and he was great! Not only was he entertaining, but our food tasted great as well. I will be requesting Kyle to be our chef in the future.
Social distancing was perfect everyone at table has been vaccinated
Benihana has definitely considered COVID safety for indoor dining.
The entire restaurant was so dirty. The quality of food was also poor.
Very good service
The food, service and environment was amazing! The Chef was very personable and for a first time visitor, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. Benihana’s made our Anniversary dinner a big hit!
Cook seemed new and inexperienced. Our fried rice was burned.
Service was great. Our server came frequently. Cook was funny and unique and seasoned our food well. Social distancing was perfect and I like that they keep their capacity low near the hibachi for Safety. Great location
Always a great experience. The service is amazing. The hosts are welcoming and the waiters are friendly. The food, delicious! Our family enjoys celebrating their birthdays at Benihana.
We missed Benihana! So happy indoor dining is back open. My family and I had a great time at dinner. Happy adults and happier kids!
We made our reservations at Open Table, checked in 15 minutes early and sat in the bar for dinner. There were no napkins or utensils even after we were served the hordervous. The food was wonderful, it was quieter in the bar area. We thanked them and left. We received 3 phone calls from Benihana's saying we were late for our reservations. Then Open Table proceeded to write us that we should've called if we were a no show. What a bunch of crap, first night out to eat inside and we get harrassed...
Fantastic service and the best food at great prices!
We go every year for birthdays.... never a disappointment! Service was great! Cordell provided phenomenal service!
First time and I loved it!!! No waiting to be seated, everyone was spaced good. Our server was very attentive and our cook was awesome. Cracked jokes and made us feel welcomed. Definitely going back again.
As usual a great dining experience. It was sooooooooooo good to be able to finally eat at our favorite restaurant after being shut out more than a year for the corona virus. For me it was an especially wonderful dinner as I had been hospitalized for eight weeks with the virus.
We're going back next week, as I've got to make up for lost time.
I love the food, and their trick. I like the way they assist customer service is good everything is great❤️I had a wonderful dining experience here it’s because of my birthday memorable one❤️
Mine and my wife's experience was and is always great. On this trip the chef made a new picture with the rice which was pretty cool. We eat here about 1 every 2 months so it was nice to see something different. Also we learned about the spicy chicken fried rice. It was delicious. Very good date night.
Our server was outstanding, and did all the amazing tricks and demos that you are known for. Our grandchildren loved every minute -- so did we.
From our server to the Chef, everything was amazing! Our son enjoyed himself very much, as we were celebrating him. And Benihana happens to be his favorite place to go to. The only complaint is that we did make a reservation during lunch hours, and we did not get seated until the lunch menu was no longer available.
Second Chef Frausto’s food was amazing!
Fun service and entertaining dinner! Always way too much food, go light on ordering! The hibachi shrimp is my favorite!
Love the food as always but service was slow this time, don’t know if it was because of the reopening or because they have to be more careful related to covid19 but in the end everything was delicious
