We had a reservation for 7pm and were seated at 7.05. By the time we ordered and the soup was bought out, it was 8.15pm. That duration was too much with a 4 year old. Food - quality/quantity was very good! By the time we finished and got out it was past 9.20pm! My wife loved her tuna platter!! Son loved the chicken and steak kids meal!!

I am not sure if they were short staff but the service was horrible. Our server was running around like crazy and management was walking around and not helping. We go here quite a bit but truthfully I don’t want to spend 2 1/2 hours there having dinner. Will be quite some time before we go back

Omg, dirties restaurant I have ever seen !
This place is so old, worn out, greasy, filthy,
No cleaning can help, it has to be gut rehabbed !
Food by its self was ok, only shrimp sauce is total misunderstanding, 0% of old taste and texture,
Only good thing about this place is service,
Staff is friendly, professional, our Chef was outstanding.
But as long they won’t remodel this please and start preparing again old good shrimp sauce please don’t even think about going there !

The food was amazing. Our initial waitress took about 15 mins to get to our table and had an attitude but our waitress was changed and our second waiter was great. Very friendly and the chef put on a great show. My fillet mignon was to DIE for....melt in your mouth. And the shrimp and fried rice are what dreams are made of.

The waitress was rude and pushy. She didn’t seem interested that we were visiting from out of town. She interrupted my children and cut them off when they were trying to place their orders. The cook was not friendly he didn’t introduce himself and basically went through the motions. This was extremely dissatisfying for my families first experience.

Went here at our college son's request to celebrate graduation. Had a good meal, marred by the behavior of the family seated with us (drunk grandmother, unruly kids). Out of control of the restaurant staff, and something that comes with the territory since tables are set up to seat 8.

Wait time to be seated was much less than we've experienced at other Benihanas. Food was good, and obviously freshly prepared.

The service was horrible. Our waitress took forever to bring us drinks and half the time forgot them altogether. Was barely at our table to check on us amd didnt bring our sushi app until the chef had our apps already cooking. The food was amazing as usual. The chef was good. He managed to bare with us on or requests of garlic butter or regular butter as we had a couple people in our group that didnt prefer garlic butter. Hosts were friendly and welcoming as usual but all in all i eat there ALOT and this time it was not a favorable visit.

This was our first time at Benihana. It was very good! My husband had steak, lobster and shrimp. I had sushi, lobster rolls and I ordered a side of their famous chicken fried rice. We
also shared an order of tempura vegetables and shrimp. My husband's dinner came with 5 courses including soup, salad, dinner, sides and sherbet for dessert. I'm not able to eat anything spicy but my husband loves spicy foods, so it was nice that we were both able to get what we wanted. We are planning on a return visit in August for our soon to be daughter in law's birthday!

It was our first time in Benihana, so we were noobs when we were ordering our food. When the chef cooked the bood, he mistakenly put exchanged the food of other people to ours. Then just removed it like nothing happens, then put it in the other corner. It was embarasing and humiliating.

I didn't expect this service from a $180 food for 3.

Well we've eaten here before and thought this time the portions were smaller. I felt like the cost was to much for what we actually got. $140 including tip for 2 meals and 1 drink...very pricey! And our cook was not as talkative and funny as others we've gotten before. He was mostly quiet.

The food was great, but the sitting with other people other than family or friends just sinks the mode and is very awkward and that kinda ruined it for us, but other than that it was amazing.

I called about ten minutes before 8 pm and was told that it would be an hour wait for two people.

Opentable saved the day. I found 8pm for two people, without a problem.
