I got to the restaurant with my family and I was told that it was a 4 hour wait and my name was not on the reservation list. I am very disappointed it was my Son birthday.

After waiting an hour...Arturo was worth it!! He was personable funny and cooked my meal perfectly. The manager on duty also made up for the hour wait as well thus overall 5 stars. Great bday celebration- I will go again even knowing WITH reservations I may have to wait an hour😊

Our chef, Kohlton, was really engaging, fun, talkative and helped make dining at Benihana a great experience. Our whole family of 8 had a great dinner, made extremely well be Kohlton, and he made it fun along the way. Thanks!

This is my favorite place to go. The only thing is you have to call a month in advance for a table. I love the food. I have never had a bad experience with the food.

The service was very slow. Waited 40 minutes for someone to take our food order and after the meal had to wait 15 minutes for ice cream finally had to get up and track down a server.

The food was great chef seemed tired and didn’t do any tricks. Not worth the $300 I spent with my party. Chef ruined the experience for my Godson it was his first time going

Love your restaurant and the gift card rebates. Today was lunch with one of my sons—he always buys two lunches so he has leftovers. Last Friday I took a friend for her birthday and she lives your place!

I will be back!

Please if someone orders brown rice, let them know that it comes plain!!! Otherwise they could have stir fried it as they were doing with the other guest's white rice!!

The cook was horrible. He had NO personality. I usually dine at the Benihana in Downey but they were booked. The service at the Downey location is WONDERFUL. No I would not recommend the Torrance location to anybody. The waiter over charged my bill with a meal that no one at the table ordered. It was my Anniversary and it was a horrible experience. The hostess disregarded my disability when I requested a certain seat that was available. It wasn’t a full table. It was really bad.

Started off great and ended horrible. Took forever to get soup and salad. Never received the sushi that we ordered. Never got refills asked a few times. My daughter never got the white rice she ordered. Chef was ok food was good. Asked for the sauce to go never got it. Waited 20 minutes for melted ice cream and another 20 for the bill and pictures. Other couple was angry as well that we were seated with. As we were leaving 3 chiefs were arguing with what looked like management. This place has gone down hill in service.

I come here every year for my birthday with the help of the birthday certificate (sign up for the Chef's table to get a $30 certificate). We sat with a great group of people and had a very entertaining Chef (Cesar was awesome). I will continue to come here and would definitely recommend it to all my friends.

Server needs more training. Our server broke a spoon on the cooking grill and did not do a very good job cleaning it up. I felt uncomfortable eating the fried rice fearing there were more small ceramic pieces in it. She forgot that we were celebrating a birthday and we did not get our birthday singing stuff. The scallops, filet mignon, and shrimp were very good.

The wait and service were incredibly slow, several of our food items were never received and some delivered when the meal was almost over.
