Our chef was absolutely amazing! He had new jokes and made it a very interactive experiences. The portions were smaller than I was used to at similar habachi restaurants but the variation on the show and the level of inter-activeness surely made up for it. Would definitely return however if you are starving you may want to order an appetizer.

Its been over 20 years since our last visit and we waited to long. The inside is new and so are the grounds. The fun is the same inside. Plenty of food and good service. We had a great time with the chef cutting and serving the food she cooked. Go early and its not to crowded, as we finished up dinner the place filled up. We missed go to the bar area and it must have been packed as most people went down there as we waited for our table. Next visit we will try.

Everything was good-we’ve been coming to this location off and on for 30 years- but during the holidays, they squeeze 1-2 more chairs at each table. Our visit was like that. Their tables seat 8; our table had 9 and on last visits we’ve had 10. This makes for a very uncomfortable dinner, since you don’t have enough room to eat. For the price, you should expect to be seated at a table for the number of people it was designed to seat, which is 8.

I just have a couple of things I would like to mention. I booked this place for a bridal party to EAT before the big day, I even put it under special note for the restaurant to see, and nothing that I asked for was met. They said they were going to take our picture and give it to us with a frame, and it didn't happen but the couple next door to us did. The matcha green tea that comes with your meal is never given to unless asked for even though your paying for it, and it's disgusting.

Never fails. Their service is great at first but the second a higher spending table arrives they abandon you. You have to ask for the Bday photo and forget hoping for refills. Glad I got the one refill on my mango lemonade. Probably would have ordered dessert if I finished my food bit hard to finish a big meal when you dont have a drink.

Service was not the greatest. As soon as you walked in the 3 host at the door did not even greet us for about 5 minutes. They did not even seem friendly. Our waiter was very slow we thought he was new but was not. The cook was fun but the food could have been cooked a bit longer. Waiter even forgot appetizers for a guest at our table and became upset when she no longer wanted it since he put the prefer in late. This is the worst service I have ever had in any of your Benihana restaurants and I have been to quiet a few.

When you book a reservation for a set time and they make you wait until they can fill up the table completely, ridiculous. That's what we made reservations, late for a movie! The girls as hostesses were horrible seating others prior to us, even had to demand to be seated as I knew we would be late!

As always a very nice experience. Went with my "work spouse" who has a shellfish allergy. Her dinner was made in front of her before any other cooking was done so that there was no chance of any shellfish residue near her food. I thought that was very considerate. Always enjoy watching the antics of the chefs. Food was tasty as usual.
