It was extremely hot because the A/C wasn’t working. Service was slow and I had a reservation at 8pm and didn’t get seated until 845pm. Took forever to have the Chef come out to cook. I won’t be coming back and I’m very disappointed.

Average Benihana experience, we’ve been to a lunch with more flare than what we had. The chef was nice and courteous just not as interactive, he seemed distracted. Still a good guy. Servers were good, attentive.

This is the third year in a row that we have spent our anniversary dinner with Benihana and I look forward to doing it again next year. Their fried rice is really good.

One of the few benefits of Covid social distancing is getting to have our Hibachi table just to the two of us! We go every year for the awesome birthday special, and it was awesome, most perfectly seasoned food we’ve ever had there, too!

The Chef and the food were great. It was rather noisy. We had reservations for 7:45
but didn't get seated until 8:20. It seemed that they were understaffed and by the
time our food was prepared at the table we were closing in on 9:00. Overall busy,
good food, but don't be in a hurry..

The experience started out somewhat lackluster, but in the end was very good. It's clear everyone is still adjusting to new health and safety protocol. Food and service were very good. The biggest issue we faced was the electronic menu. Cell service at this location was spotty for us and it made using a mobile device to view the menu cumbersome. We eventually figured out the restaurant had guest WiFi. Proactively telling customers that would have been helpful. The online menu was somewhat difficult to view and follow.

Well the food was fabulous other than the cook giving me such a hard time about being gluten free, that was annoying and rude. I didn’t ask for a sensitivity to gluten.... Also having to constantly ask for refills on our drinks was a bit taxing.

We were rushed out, and without any alcohol, paid $100 for three of us. The man doing the cooking was great, but our server was very slow. Had to wait for utensils, refills, rice, etc. Not impressed.

We visited for Father’s Day during COVID restrictions and understand the constraints within the restaurant must operate- they did a sufficient job and managed these limitations.

My less than 5 stars is more focused on food portions, recipes used and food taste. The salad dressing recipe tasted unpleasant and there was too much on my small salad. Additionally, the sauces available for fried rice were not as good as other hibachi restaurants serve. Overall, we spent more for food that was not as good (or abundant) as competitors. Bummer! Benihana used to be so good!

The experience was great. It was nice to get out of the house and sit down to a wonderful teppanyaki dinner. The server, Andrew, was affable and attentive, the chef was terrific. The food was magnificent. I had a filet mignon, my date had a New York cut, both perfectly prepared and tender. I will be going back to Benihana Scottsdale again very soon.
