We love Benihana but the rugs look dingy and steam tables dirty when we sat down.
Our favorite rice was overcooked from the backend prior to frying it with veggies at the table.

I had 6:30pm reservations for myself and my son and was first seated at 6:45pm. After seated at the table, we waited a minimum of 20 minutes before the waitress came over with water. We then waited over another 20 minutes before she took our dinner orders. We had to wait another 20 minutes for the hibachi cook to come to our table. He put on a nice show once he got started. However, the service was horrible.....we didn't leave the restaurant until 9:00pm. I have been going to this restaurant for years, and this was the worst experience I have ever had. I may not return.

Normally have enjoyed dining at BeniHana’s but this latest dinner was very disappointing. Service was poor and I had to ask several times for water and utensils. Our chef seemed distracted, hurried and over-cooked the chicken and the shrimp. Hope this was just a bad day and not a trend.

We werent greeted by the hostess. Then after asked how many people mentiones it being my brotheres birthday. Santos your Chef was AMAZING. The waiter seemed to be new possibly.!? We ordered 3 - 6 course meals. Only received 4 out of the 6 courses. We mentioned it and were brought the check. No one came over to sing happy birthday or acknowledge it. If it weren't for Santos making it worth while we probably wouldn't return. He is a GEM.

Too loud. Chef was messy. Tried to tell him to wipe the spatula. Couldn’t hear me or understand? So I had someone else’s burnt teriyaki sauce on my
Overcooked meat.

Hibachi factory at this point- chef was not engaging and did maybe one trick. Many higher quality hibachi experiences available at this point

The food was delicious! You get a lot for what you pay for. They have great cocktails. The table doesn’t make it easier to talk in a big group, and it is quite loud but the experience beats all that!

Had a 715 reservation, was seated right away, but they didn't start cooking or asking if we wanted anything until 820. When you're sitting there conversing you don't realize the time but once the chef came to the table it was 820 that's Way too long when you have a reservation to wait to have food. But one good thing the food was delicious my drink I ordered from the bar was horrible so I sent it back and I ended up having a Pepsi. This was my second time there , My first time was absolutely perfect I don't know what the difference was maybe management or staff but this experience was horrible and I will never go back there again. And I was there celebrating my 31st wedding anniversary so I was in good spirits in a great mood but all that wait, it just wasn't really worth it at the end I wish I would've gone somewhere else for my anniversary.

Shouldn't take 2 1/2 hrs for dinner at Benihana. Service was terrible, clearly understaffed. Waited 20 minutes for drinks then was told they were out. Waitress left without even asking what else we wanted. The list goes on. They even charged us for the drinks they didn't have! Very disappointing. Had to ask for everything. Worst part is the waitress told me 2 times that they shared tips and insinuated I left only 18%. I was tempted to give less and appalled. After 30 years, I won't be back.

We made reservations and were taken over 1/2 hour afterwards only after complaining. Reservations were made at 6:00pm & we didn’t leave till 9:00pm. Very slow service. Everything took long to get. They seemed overcrowded & understaffed. Food was good though.

Horrible experience! Requested two highchairs when I made the reservation. Called twice to make sure this request could be honored & was assured both times that this would not be a problem. I arrived 15 minutes early & was told the highchairs were there. When my children/grandchildren arrived, we were told there was only highchair that wasn’t being used. The hostess finally found a highchair in the kitchen area, but it had no seat belt/buckles. No one came to try to rectify the situation!!!
