We took our 7 and 8 year old and had a great time out as a family! The only complaint was the chef didn’t do the big fire display they normally do. The kids were a little disappointed, because they were really looking forward to that!

Our party enjoyed a wide variety of food, steak, shrimp, scallops and chicken, all prepared by a chef at the hibachi table. (For the first time at a Japanese restaurant, we had a female chef.) The food and service were quite good.

We went in for a Mother’s Day dinner and had an amazing experience. Our waitress was super friendly and was always making sure the whole table had drinks at all times. Omar was our chef and we was super friendly and really fun to be around. The food was absolutely amazing as always, and me and my family had an incredible time here. The manager also surprised us with a frozen song at the end and that was probably the best part of the dinner, everyone enjoyed the performance. Thank you again Benihana family.

Great experience for celebrating birthdays. Special dining with entertainment was fun for the whole family and group of friends. Our chef, Cirino, was terrific. Every day dining in special occasions are always wonderful Benihana, our favorite restaurant.

Been 30 years since I've gone to Benihana. It was a tradition that me and my father would do every year for my Birthday, so decided to do it again this year.

Was a pretty great experience. Took a little time to be seated as they were running behind, but it was only about a 15 minute delay. Once we got to our table, the experience was just as I remembered it. The cook was fantastic and fun. The food was yummy, and the dessert was even better.

Glad to see my memories of the place held up after all these years and can't wait to do it again next year.

Sad! What happened Benihana? Obviously you are not ready for primetime just yet! Truly disappointed occasion for a family set of birthdays!

You need to work on customer service, food quality, chef's and most of all loyalty to longtime guest!

We wish you the best! Truly horrible experience and outlandish pricing to boot for poor service/quality and no staff.

The worst night ever. We waited 10 min before being seated. When we were seated it took 45 min before anyone even brought us water we had to hunt down a person several times. Finally ordered. Our cook was not entertaining and she only connected with a couple at end of table talking and giving them extra good.
Never going again

We did not enjoy the chef. Our food was very bland it had no flavour and the chef was very boring he did not Excite the kids and I think we have had better cooks in the past I don't think we will be returning to this location for mediocre food. Chef was Julian. Wasn't impressed.

If you’ve ever been to Ah-So it’s similar in that aspect. My biggest complaint was the rice. If you don’t order fried rice you basically just get a bowl of white rice delivered to the table. We got our rice about 20 minutes before the end of them cooking our meal. No soy sauce, no butter, nothing. I ended up asking the hibachi guy for some butter and soy sauce because it was just cold white rice at that point. For $30 a person, I’d expect at least warm rice. But we made due since it was our first experience and maybe that’s normal. The show and other foods were good.

I used to only be able to eat half my meal & take the leftovers for an additional meal. It just doesn't seem like they give you as much now. Food tastes great, service was excellent!

Everything was fine except for the chef. I’ve been here before so I know what to expect as far as the presentation delivered at your dinner table. The fancy show that they normally put on was subpar at best. What a shame too because we celebrated my birthday and introduced my GF 6 year old kid too. I was hoping for more.

Great service and food.
They did great catering to our party of 11.
The drinks were pretty good as well. Only thing was it took a little long for our chef to start our 6 course meals. But overall pretty good experience.
Thank you
