Entry area was a little dirty (carpet), our hibachi chef was excellent cook but the showmanship was perfunctory - hard to have a lot of charisma since he has to wear a mask though. Food was delicious

The first time we’ve been out in months to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday and graduation. Our reservation was on Saturday 5/23/2020 at 7:45pm. Aside from staff wearing masks, I was disgusted with their supposed safety measures. We no sooner order our appetizers when two kids from another table start messing around with chairs from an empty table next to ours, bumping into the back of my daughter, nothing is said. These kids are running around like animals. The parents are saying nothing!! The mom takes the third kid out of his high chair and now three of them are literally running around. They are now in the corner of the restaurant where the extra chairs and high chairs are stacked and are playing on ALL of them. They had to have put their nasty hands all over 20-40 chairs and high chairs. I mean they were climbing on them and moving them! The flippant parents again say nothing. This is now an issue of safety for the restaurant if one of them falls off the stacks and now for the public because of the exposure to how many people from touching everything. We aren’t done...we are now trying to enjoy our dinner when the three are back again at the empty table beside us. The one kid proceeds to climb up onto the top of the table, then sits down and slides on his butt from one end of the table to the other knocking over every clean dish, napkin and set of chopsticks on the floor!! Moving the chairs again to the middle of the aisle and now the parents are walking out, walk passed the disaster their monsters made and say and do nothing. MY daughter got up from her celebration dinner and put the chairs back and cleaned up the floor because she felt bad. WHERE WAS THE STAFF AND BETTER YET THE MANAGER DURING ALL OF THIS? And the surfaces that were crawled on and touched by ALL of those kids were NEVER sanitized. The restaurant was not that busy and I would expect management to be on their game to want to make the guests they do have happy. Special occasion ruined

Service was great, our waiter and waiter in training came by frequently to serve our party. Our chef was very nice and definitely catered our show to my daughter for her birthday.

Felt very rushed, soup and salad delivered at the same time and then they started the dinner and just after he finished we were asked if we needed boxes. We barely had time to start out dinner and received the checked, never asked about dessert. We spent less than an hour and really didn’t even enjoy ourselves. We used to go there about once a month and now I think it will be awhile before we will go back.

Alan was a very attentive server and made the evening fun for all of us. Cholula, if we have his name correct, astounded all of the party with his hibachi skills and was certain to ensure we enjoyed our food and the show.

We ventured out for our first dinner in a long while, and we were glad we picked Benihana (only for the familiarity). The tables were spaced appropriately for social distancing, the chefs were wearing masks (both unnecessary, imho). The food was fresh and well prepared and as expected. Let's go out to eat and socialize!

It was very loud and the server was not. Several times I could not hear him speak, right away I told him I could not hear what he was saying and no attempt was made for improvement.

The chef did not ask about food allergies and served me with food that had dairy on it. I am severely lactose intolerant and shortly after leaving I had a bad reaction, leaving me unsure why I paid more than $140.00 for a less than stellar experience.

Not very happy.

I waited about 30 minutes for my food, I ordered an appetizer and it did not come out until my actual entree was done. When they brought it l out, it wasn't warm, nor was it hot as in fresh. I waited all that time and wasn't satisfied with my meal.

We love dining at Benihana’s, but we’re very disappointed with our chef. This was my family’s first time and the chef was boring and quiet, we were entertained watching other tables. Our waiter Nick was very friendly. We were celebrating my sons birthday, was such a disappointment!

The server was an absolute mess. He did not explain to me about the birthday value until he rang my check to tell me it can't be used. I would like a full refund!!!
