    We made a 4pm reservation so we would be in and out before the crowds, due to having an 85 year old who was uncomfortable with the possibility of getting covid. At 5:00 the chef first approached the table, as the restaurant continued to fill around us. One of our party had to leave at 5:30, before his dinner was even started. The rest of us couldn't leave until after 6:15 because of late cooking and poor waitress service. The restaurant was too crowded at that point to get timely service. All in all a poor experience. Never did get a birthday photo!

    The chef did a great job, food was excellent; the server knocked the rating down a touch (ordered a beer, drank it and was never offered another, water not refilled and asked for soy sauce but never got).

    Delicious food and a fun experience. They did seem understaffed, as everyone else is. Took us quite a while to get our check and get out after the show was over and clearly everyone was done with their food.

    Disappointing lunch. Place was packed & we sat for over an hour before the chef arrived. Got my husbands order wrong -food was all prepared & we were all eating & my husband was still waiting. When it did arrive - the hot portions were cold, but he was so hungry he didn’t say anything! There were kids screaming - really not the usual fun environment. Lunch prices were good - one positive plus!

    Lin our teppanyaki chef was great. Only complaint is the rush rush service! We couldn’t enjoy our sushi and cocktails prior to the entrees. We felt like Benihana’s wanted us to eat and get the heck out of the place. We were a party of 7 so we took up the whole teppanyaki flattop and there should have been no reason to rush us out. Not a very enjoyable experience.

    Smoke of griddle from table next to us overtook our table. Our server was fabulous, the best part of the dining experience. Quality of cooking experience definitely not impressive. Chef was not suited for this style of food preparation. Seafood treasure was over cooked.

    Food was ok but entries prepared incorrect not what was ordered, cook ok, waiter messed up orders, absent most of the time, we had to go to bar to order drinks. Not recommend to people that are specific to what they want to eat. 50/50 on eight orders at table 4 was incorrect.

    We are frequent visitors at Benihana’s. This was the first time I experienced the food being very salty, From the salad dressing to the zucchini. Way, way too much salt was put on the food. Not sure why the salad dressing was salty? The staff seem like they could really care less about being there. Not my typical Benihana experience at all. So unfortunate. The chicken fried rice was OK, that one was not salty but rather plain. The steak was Delicious. Overall, not sure if I would go back to that Benihana’s again. I’d rather spend a little bit more money and go to Mastros or Oceans 44. 😞

    Our reservation was at 7:15. We showed up at 7:10 and were not seated until 7:35. We had soups and salad delivered in a reasonable amount of time but then waited until 8:25 for our chef to arrive. It was way too long of a wait in between salads and cooking. The food was also very bland. Not the normal experience we have had here. We were celebrating our daughters birthday and were very disappointed. Our two servers were nice

    We had a 1 o’clock reservation and wasn’t sat down until near 2. Waited forever for food when it finally was cooked half of our order was forgot and not cooked. Then one order of food had a hair. Requested the manager who came over and after we told him all this he stood and laughed in our face. Stuart was the worst manager/ person I’ve ever met. I’ve never met such a nasty person with a bad attitude. The restaurant was so poorly run. Hands down worst experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant.

    the first time I've ever been disappointed in BH. The service was horrible. The waitress forgot several items, the bill was wrong, service was slow. Our chef forgot to do a couple of the gimmicks like the onion volcano, etc... I'll go back but this was by far our worst experience there

    Our chef was fairly new and had trouble cracking the eggs, getting shells in the eggs and having to take time to get them out. Our food was also over cooked rice and shrimp), as a result He also missed part of my order, the calamari. The higher stars was because the waiter was very apologetic and ensured we were given a discount on my meal and we could see other cooks doing a much better job at nearby tables.

    Had a 7:30 reservation for my wife’s birthday. They did not seat us until 8:10. Once we sat down we waited until 9:15 for our chef to come out and cook our food for us. Over AN HOUR. Once the chef started cooking he realized the hood ventilation system was not working properly so smoke was just blasted us in the face for parts of the meal. Our server was very nice and apologetic and I realize it was outside of his control however the manager not once stepped in and apologized. They offered to comp an ice cream for our wait which is a little insulting considering how much you pay to eat there and the fact that it’s my wife’s birthday so they’d be giving out ice cream anyways. I realize it’s hard to find good help in the restaurant industry at this time however the customer service aspect of the night could have been handled a lot better by the manager.
