Chef was okay, nothing extravagant and didn’t seem like he enjoyed his job too much. Waitresses were good!

The food was good but there seemed to be a mix up with communication between multiple waitresses serving the table we were at. One waitress took orders for ice cream and green tea after the meal some time had passed and it didn’t come until one of the other guests asked about it. Ice cream came but no green tea. Then the other guest asked a waiter passing by for the green tea. The only other thing I wish the chief that prepared the food would have asked ahead of time if there were any food allergies or dislikes on how the food was prepared. One son dislikes onions and the other son has an allergy to shellfish. Not the service I am use to as I have wrote reviews for this place before. I would have to reconsider coming back.

When we arrived we had a wait so we sat at the bar. We were there about 5 minutes before the bartender even acknowledged us. At the end of our dinner we did not receive our ice cream. I realize that was closing time but that doesn’t mean that we should be treated any differently. By the time we received our appetizers we were already eating our main course. In the future, I will go to Hamada Japan for my Japanese wants. The portions are larger and I’ve NEVER had the inkling of an unpleasant experience there!!!

We sat in the Sushi Lounge. The food was good, the service was good. I wish they'd give you a whole cup of soup instead of half a cup. $3.50 for half a cup of soup. Irks me.

I was not happy, we waited over an hour for chef to show up, scallops should be cooked on both sides and mushrooms should not have that much dirt on them. It was disappointing.

The server was extremely slow. We sat and waited almost an hour before the chef came out to cook. When we paid it took her 30min to return with our cards. The cook was excellent he apologized and moved as quickly as possible. I hope the tip went towards him.

We used to live nearby but moved to Michigan and we were visiting and had a craving for Benihana. This visit did not disappoint. Was a little pricey for 2 meals and one cocktail (over $125) but for a once in a while thing it was worth it.

Had reservations @6:30 and was seated 1/2 hour later. Drinks came late, appetizer came after meal was being served. Taste is not the same as it was 10 years ago. Price is higher with a lot less portions of shrimp appetizer and maim entree....

I was not happy the second time, our waitress was fussing with a black couple saying extra for this and that. It was quite embressing, that kept saying that, it was OK. I didn't like it. We know how much it cost to be at your restaurant. The chef was really not into it. It just wasn't fun. I couldn't wait to get out. I don't like when people humiliate people. Low class.

I took my employees to this location to celebrate a birthday for one of them. We shared that he was vegetarian initially but some how shrimp was still put on his plate. The manager and staff treated us as if we did something wrong and did not seem to understand that fixing another plate for him was not appropriate because this spoiled his appetite. There was NOTHING done to fix the issue. A poor overall experience. Avoid going there.

I've been to this Benihana many times. We go several times a year. I've noticed that the price has gone up and the portions shrunk and also the performance is getting weaker. Our chef didn't really engage much, I mean I guess he talked to the kids on the table a little bit. But for the price, I'm starting to expect more. I mean they even started skimping on the soup, bowls just filled past half-way. The fried rice would be heaping out the bowl, now doesn't even reach the rim. Disappointing. And this is inexpensive food. I'm not expecting bigger steaks. However, the servers were fantastic, as always.

Very disappointed, had a 700 pm reservation, came early 640 pm. Was told to sit in the bar area and wait. Thought someone would come and ask us for a drink order. After sitting there for 10 minutes realized there is no waitress . Read on the TV monitor that happy hour ends at 700 pm, the maître d never mentioned happy hour to us. We went up to the bar , waited for the bartender, who kept getting interrupted by the waitresses and dropped a glass behind the bar, Finally took our drink order and I asked will this be happy hour price. He said if it is before 7 pm, if after 7 no it won't. By the time he made the drinks then put the charge in the cash register it was 7:04 pm and wqe were charged regular price. How rude !!

Our group of four was seated with another foursome also celebrating a birthday which made it extra fun. The server was great and the chef kept us laughing while he prepared (& did tricks) with our food....excellent scallops, calamari, and shrimp as well as veggies. The soup & salad that come with the 5-course meal were delicious. Also enjoyed the Fuji apple flavored saki. All in all it was a very special evening and yummy meal.
