Made a reservation for 7p and didn’t get seated until almost 8p. After checking with the hostess for the 3rd time and telling them I was going somewhere else seats miraculously appeared. Furthermore a couple seated at the same table head us discussing the reservation and interjected they had just walked in and been seated.

The woman at check in gave us issues she canceled a reservation we confirmed we were going to ! Also I had proof we had a reservation! I hadn’t gone asleep in almost 24 hours because I work overnights and we live hours and hours away to just go eat here ! Couldn’t even enjoy it !

Felt very rushed. The chef did not take enough time to properly cook everything. Our appetizer came out minutes before our main course was done cooking, and it was not because the appetizer took too long. Felt like we were being pushed out the door. Very disappointed.

Benihana’s never disappoints, but after all these years and for the prices they charge, they should really update their decor. We were celebrating a birthday, and all of the photos turned us yellow and there was a fire alarm switch on an otherwise bare wall behind the birthday boy. Not the “pop of color” you would want in a portrait!

Excellent service, though. Great food

We usually come for family birthday dinners. Our server was good, although she misunderstood part of my dinner order...no onions extra zucchini. Got no onions and the normal zucchini which was disappointing. Our chef wasn't the best...we got a few tricks at first but no rice heart, no egg tricks, no flipping shrimp tails...we did get the flaming volcano though. He was also very light handed on the butter and garlic butter. Our food didn't taste as good as in the past and was kinda dry. We did get a good birthday song and picture. If we hadn't had our coupon I would have been very disappointed in the cost vs what we received.

On the day of my dining experience it was my 5th year anniversary. The host for our table was very gracious and attentive but the cook seemed rushed and routined. Even though your reservations ask if it is a special occasion and we informed them once we were seated that What’s the special occasion was they still announced it as a birthday. Our bill totaled a little over $120 for a party of two also with the lowest percentage of gratuity being around $23. Considering my wife’s meal consisted of two lobster tails and another couple sitting on the opposite side of the table ordered a similar meal all four lobsters were cooked and chopped up and divided. With the price of the meal it was very understandable that it is impossible to tell if the chopped lobster was divided evenly for the cost. During his rushed performance and considering I have visited this establishment before they were steps that were missed and not lasting long enough for me to even video for memories. After the cook finished his performances and served out the food the couple at the other end of the table seemed to be regulars and began a lengthy conversation with the cook because they were familiar with each other.

Shrimp were overcooked, but the chicken and steak were very good. The chicken fried rice is still a favorite of all in the family. Very expensive for what you get which is why we only go once or twice a year.

The only issue was that the waiter was taking our orders before our reservation time. It was a little ridiculous - so my friend who arrives 3 minutes before our reservation time had to hurry up and order without even being able to sit down for a minute.

Started to feel a little uncomfortable as dining area was filling up and spacing was rather close. I love this place however and if there were no virus I would be there once a week as I had done since restaurant opened.
