The place looks like it needs to be updated, the food was ok, The fried rice was a little salty and the steak was over cooked. I wanted medium, I got medium well to well done. The chef cooking in front of you is great, I guess that is what you pay for.

The mojito was delicious! Highly recommend it. I would be willing to give this place another try.

Food is always good. Service is always slow. We sat for 15 minutes before drink orders were taken.

I have always enjoyed Benihana. Our chef was very engaging and entertaining. Flavor was good. Steak done medium but was chewy. A Lobster order came out before cooking was lobster meat pieces put in a lobster tail shell. Sea food over cooked. Sushi was very good!

Celebrating a birthday. Gave the waitress the $30.00 off coupon and when the bill came she had neglected to remove the $30.00. When brought to her attention she corrected the bill.
Gave the birthday ice cream but did not take the birthday picture. Being going there for many years and have seen a drastic price increase for their entire menu.
Not pleased with them at all.

I had a great time at the restaurant! The food was great and delicious and my non-alcoholic beverage was excellent for the price and glass! I love to eat at seafood every chance I get! It is a wonderful experience and place to be at thru-out the year! Thanks for my excellent food and will be back with guests. I went on Thursday 26th at 3:30 p.m. I had a lot of fun with the chef preparing my food and the guest at the table.

The scallops were fishy. Never happened before. Disappointed.

Three of us had a good meal. We’ve been here many times and the food is consistently good. Going to Benihana with 8 friends probably makes it more enjoyable so that you’re not dining with random folks. Service was improved since our last visit.

We attended Benihana on Monday with my parents and boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. It was a very cozy restaurant and very clean. We enjoyed our food and the cook's entertainment a lot! There were two couples with us at the table (everyone kind of kept to themselves which was nice), but one of the couples was really rude to the cook and asked for a ton of extra stuff without leaving a tip. It would have been better if they were not there! I did not think Benihana was a couples date place. It seems better for groups.
But overall the experience was very pleasant. Like I said, our food was delicious and perfectly cooked! Service was off a little bit. The waiter who was collecting dishes took our order at the beginning and he wrote down my mother's fried rice but then made a face at her when she asked for it after being served plain steamed rice. They also never asked us if we wanted our green tea that comes as a part of our meal. We asked for it at the end of the meal, so I guess they had to wait longer for us to be finished with our meal because they hadn't offered it earlier like they were supposed to.
