The food wasn't as fresh as other hibachi experiences I've had. The cost was very high and the service wasn't deserving. The chef was decent but made a lot of 'jokes' about not being good at his job or not wanting to work. The sauces were terrible.

Everything was good food was delicious, only problem was the waitress made an issue about my CDL saying it's not a valid form of ID when I wanted to purchase a beer. I showed her 2 other forms of ID and seemed like she had an attitude and did not want to serve me.

For a Monday night, the restaurant was very crowded. We had 7:30 reservations. We didn't get seated until 7:50. We sat at our table for 20 minutes before we were even acknowledged and given water. The service was painfully slow and our waitress seemed to be MIA most of the evening. Benihana is one of our favorite spots for special occasions. We were celebrating my daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday and our 2 attempts at a group picture were not successful. Despite the poor service and minor hiccups, our cook was very nice and our food was delicious.

We thought it would be something fun to do on a date. The food was good and the server finally warmed up to our table. I was expecting more engagement from all staff. A warm welcome, some interactions during the preparation. Maybe next time? Maybe not?

You go to Benihana for the hibachi experience, not the service. I ordered an extra rice, it was forgotten, i ordered spicy rice it was made plain. We got one cup of tea for our entire dinner, refills weren't provided for the kids unless someone asked for them.

It was my kid's birthday and he had a great time so that's all that matters.

Server rushed us as soon as we were sat down. There was a family already seated so she wanted our order as soon as she took theirs. When she took our order she didnt ask us what we wanted to drink so we had to wait about 15 min. for our drinks. She was very short and not very friendly. Our Chef was great. He was funny and entertaining. Food was delicious.

We hadn’t been to Benihana’s in 30 years, we used to go to the one in Lincolnshire 30 years ago, when they tore it down we never went back until this visit. We enjoyed it very much.

My family of 4 went to celebrate 2 birthdays. Our chef was great, he was funny, and accommodating to whatever we asked for. I wish we could request the same chef every time we go. He was one of the best we’ve had. Great food cooked right before your eyes, with some jokes added. The hot Free green tea is also tasty in my opinion. A bit pricy but we all enjoyed ourselves.

Long waits between courses. Very warm in restaurant. Several orders served incorrectly. Tasty but weak Beni- Tini cocktail. Asked for substitution for shrimp appetizer (part of the 5 course option)—would only offer extra vegetables which were just grilled zucchini and onions. Overall, below average experience and not worth the price.

Out of the other hibachi this one has got to be at the bottom of my list. I felt I didn't get my value of food for the price. The drinks were watered down. Not pleased at all.

The food was fresh and delicious and the chef was very entertaining. It was a great value as well. We got the steak and lobster meal and hot sake and it was less than 100$ per person plus 22% tip. I will definitely return very soon. It was a little loud and crowded but it was Mothers day weekend so it is understandable.
