Our chef didn't do any of the normal show stuff and forgot to take the photo with the birthday certificate so we didn't get that. It was her first time going and for her birthday it just wasn't as special as we hoped

This particular experience was underwhelming. The food was good however our hibachi chef was unenthusiastic and our dinner ended abruptly. We had a vegan at our table and he didn’t seem to get the concept of not getting eggs and chicken on the tofu. Our waiter was very inattentive. I’ve had better experiences at this particular Benihana’s however this visit was disappointing.

We went to celebrate my wife's 40th with the kids. Our waiter barley came around after takimg our order to check if we needed anything. The chef seemed like he was lost. The food was lacking the flavor it should have had and my wife's Filet mignon was cooked improper. The chef kept on pressing on it over cooking it and drying it out. My wife had to get up and complain to get the rest of our items from the kitchen. Then the server messed up our dessert order. Which really shouldnt be that hard it Ice cream chocolate or vanilla. He brought out the wrong order.

I have been to this Benihana on many occasions. This happened to be a Tuesday evening so the restaurant was not crowded at all which is a plus. We had an excellent chef and a most delicious meal.

We were lucky to go at a less popular time. If it’s packed the table seats about 10-12 people I think. Chefs are always good and put on a show while making really good food.

I am a vegan and I love coming to Benihana! They have multiple ways to eat vegan at their location but my favorite is the Vegetable Yakisoba! I can't wait to get back there.

Reservations are essentially placeholders. Made a reservation and was 10 mins early. Was not called to be seated until 45 mins after the reservation time. The place was packed, so I’m sure they don’t need my business. Will never go again based upon this experience.

We frequent this establishment quite often and never had a terrible meal like we did recently. This is the first time we had this chef and he was terrible. I wish we had gotten Jesus because he’s the best chef they’ve got.

Service was much better than usual because the restaurant was particularly empty on Tuesday night.

Food at Benihana is always good, and the chef provides excellent entertainment while cooking!
Rest of wait staff can use a little coaching on courtesy and explaining more about meal. They offer fried rice, and never mention there is an extra fee. We had to request the tea that came with our meal (and only one cup was served). A pot of tea (for groups to share) that can be replenished would be lovely!

This was my first visiting a Benihana location and I loved it. The food was delicious and the servers were all very nice and attentive. This will definitely NOT be my last visit to a Benihana. Next time I want an onion volcano as part of the presentation.

It's Benihana. We go for the entertaining hibachi show even though we know the food isn't as good as less "chainy" restaurants. On my most recent trip to Benihana, we checked in about 10 minutes before our 7 o'clock reservation. We were told that they had given away our seat to another person and that we would have to wait for the next available table. I was pretty upset considering I had work the next day, the other person in my party had work the next day, we had made a reservation in advance, and the servers just gave our spot away. It was fairly quiet, which made sense because it was a Thursday evening, and there were several available grills in the restaurant. We were seated at a grill next to another full table where there was no room in between hibachi tables for 2 chefs. We had to wait for one table to finish their dinner show before another chef could come cook for us. This problem could have easily been avoided by seating us elsewhere. Nevertheless, we were there because we had a birthday coupon that we did not want to waste. The food was delicious, nobody does steak quite like Benihana! Of course I'll be back next time we have a coupon or a group location. This experience will not turn me off of Benihana, however it would have nice to have my reservation be acknowledged and respected

Food was great and the chef was awesome, but the service was HORRIBLE. Took almost 20 minutes from the time we sat down to get water, plus my friend ordered a sushi roll as an appetizer but never even received it. Other than that, I'd recommend.

Food is consistently good. However the last two times i visited this location the waitress service was poor. Piles of dirty dishes left on the table and request took a long time to fulfill. Only time i saw her frequently is when she gave me the check and was waiting for payment.
