    When you think of the location being Short Hills New Jersey, one would presume that the service would be top notch. This location is anything but. The hostess at the front Dess had a poor attitude and a non-welcoming demeanor. The hostess that seats the customers was rather abrasive and loud. The waitress through no fault of her own worked and therefore inattentive. The restaurant did not seem clean as the normal franchise locations are. The lighting was dim and gloomy and I think a total rehaul of the location which includes a more cordial staff is in order. The cook at our table was the best thing of the night.

    Walked in, there was some kind of bug crawling on the floor. Had to ask for menu as none was given to the entire table. Waited for over 20 minutes for a chef because our original one had a, 'family emergency." Then my date was served the wrong dish even after the cook confirmed it with her prior to starting to cook. Not worth the $127 I spent and NOT coming back...

    I took my son here for his birthday, unfortunately we had a poor experience. Our chef was inexperienced, incredibly messy, forgetful and I’m pretty sure he was also high. He couldn’t remember any of the orders. Didn’t bring the correct portions. Forgot to cook parts of people’s meal. Everyone’s order was incorrect at the table. He focused all of his attention on one guest who he flirted with. Didn’t get her order right either. It also took incredibly long. In the end most of the table took the food to go. Our son didn’t get the happy birthday song as requested but we did receive a 0 balance due bill.

    Understaffed, reservations not followed. cooking surface not clean. New chef did nothing remotely "entertaining". portions divided without thought, so last person got close to no fried rice, no noodles, no onions...no ice cream available to celebrate my kids birthday. Table NEVER cleared. Birthday request ignored, - when I asked about it, 2 servers came and sang. Manager blamed everything on our server, he was rude and not understanding. Don't go here!

    I drove 45 minutes to get here to a crowded and noisy waiting room. The customer service agents are beyond rude and disorganized and arguing with each other. After 30 minutes we were escorted to a table which was assigned to another family. was told to go back to the waiting area until they argued again with each other. what confused me is there were more than 6 tables free but they couldn't figure out how to seat people.At this point we gave up nnd went to longhorn instead. I would never set foot ar this location

    This restaurant has gone down hill. It used to be a favorite of ours, but the waitstaff stood around talking rather than coming to tables. I had to request a server 3 times just to get water. The table chef was messy and burnt the food. More than once burnt crumbs flew into the food. She was trying hard, but clearly wasn’t trained properly. The parking lot was disgusting with liter every where. The bathrooms were filthy.

    The food quality has diminished quite a bit and the restaurant in general could use a revamp and a hard scrub - quite frankly it’s not very clean. The bathroom is consistently dirty and smells like a sewer. Service was okay, but like in most restaurants they are under staffed.

    The food was excellent, I was just disappointed in the service. The waitress repeatedly forgot things we ordered and never asked if I needed more water. We were their for my husbands 30 birthday which she knew ahead of time and she was not going to bring him dessert. We had to ask in which she seemed annoyed. We also had to ask for tea which is included with the meal and she seemed to be whispering to other staff and was generally rude.

    I must say that I was quite impressed by the improvements. First, the cooks are very good all the time. We got Victor as our cook and Kenya as our server. Victor was excellent. Kenya tried really hard to manage several tables; she was funny and polite. Contrary to past disappointments, the restaurant was kept at the right temperature; no more people wearing their winter coats and hats inside. I noticed a new manager but couldn't talk to him. The bathrooms were cleaned and neat. The restaurant was quite clean as well as the cooking areas. The hostesses still need to work on their social skills; they are distant and dismissive, and there is no "Welcome to Benihana, how can I help you?" Regardless, the overall improvements can be noticed! I do hope the improvements continue and I do plan to return for other events.

    It takes a lot for me to leave a review on a place but boy was this the worst hibachi ever! first off no point in reservation.... didnt start cooking till 10 on a 815 reservation... so many things were just awful. Definitely short staffed which sucks but DONT OVER BOOK IF YOU ARE SHORT STAFF! Also seemed like the chef was new and barely knew what she was doing -.- First time here & most definitely never going back or recommending this place.

    We made a 7:45pm Birthday reservation and got there on time. We were not seated until 8:55pm. When I spoke to the manager about it he said he was having a problem hiring cooks. When I asked if they adjusted the amount of people they could seat at once he said no and raised his voice to tell me if I didn't want to wait I didn't have too!! Everyone around me had the same issue. They were waiting well over an hour. The hostess was kind enough to tell me on the side that they are told to give walk in's the tables that should be held for the people with reservations. The food was not worth the wait, it was average at best. We ordered food to go as soon as we sat down and the waitress forgot it because she was too busy flirting w/the guys seated behind us. TERRIBLE experience and I will NEVER EVER EVER go there again. Such a shame how this place we used to LOVE going to has gone down the drain.

    After being moved between 2 tables and having our server changed 3 times, we didn't get served drinks (not even water) for 40 minutes after being seated. The service was poor and the place seemed very uncoordinated and mismanaged. The main chef was excellent though! He put on a nice show while cooking and made great meals for us.
