The food was great!! But we pay for the experience which was terrible. We made reservations and still waited 20 minutes to get seated.Due to this we were told sushi was unavailable because the sushi chef left.Most of the staff had left because we were there late. My son didn't even want them to sing happy birthday because only the manager and server was left. When asking to speak to the manager he said it was just a bad night.

We had a reservation at 6:45. Didn’t get seated until 7:15. The food is amazing but the price of the food combined with the long wait times for anything including drinks was not worth it. We came for a birthday and heard 17 other birthday celebrations except ours. Never coming back

Our first time to Benihana in this location and I love the consistency of their food. It tasted amazing and everyone their were so nice. Social distancing was in place and it was very clean. I loved seeing their manager coming in for the afternoon and greeting all his staff. Nice environment and we will be returning! Woohooo

Benihana needs to raiseits prices...if nothing other than to discourage uncouth and sketchy groups from turning the place into a feedbag.

Had a reservation at 9 pm and didn’t get seated until 9:20 and then didn’t even get a chef to cook our food until 10:20... we got our food at 10:40. Almost 2 hours until we finally got our food.

Menu is extensive and I have never had any dinner I didn't enjoy. Servings are very large but we still try appetizers as they are always enjoyable.
They have adapted to COVID standards so we miss the pleasure of other people at the table but the atmosphere is still festive because of the volume of people at other tables. Do not fear, we are adequately separated.

I went for my 23 birthday and EVERYONE WAS AMAZING! Bartender Amanda killed it. The cook Julian was energetic and had us laughing the whole time. Our server Taylor was patience and answered all our questions and got us everything we needed through out the night! I wanna go back already! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The chef we had used the same utensil for everyone’s dinner. Touching raw meat and then the cooked meats. Never changing his utensil. I’ll never dine at this establishment again. That’s unsafe.

My wife and I came her for our first year anniversary of being married. I made a reservation for 7:00 p.m. we didn't get a table till 7:30. After we had our table the chef didn't come to cook our food until after 8:45. It was ridiculous. My wife and I are very disappointed

Overall, I had a horrible time. This was my first time at the Scottsdale location. I had hair in my soup, my waiter asked me if I wanted another one, like I was going to eat the one with the hair in it! My cook was not entertaining at all. The bad part is, this was my boyfriend’s birthday and first time at Benihana. I will not recommend this location to anyone.
