My daughter's favorite birthday dinner spot and the food was great and good time for our whole family. Still wish they had better ventilation but better than in the past. Fun to sit at grill and have chef flame and chop and flip the food for everyone. Always too much food but it was all tasty and nice ice cream treat for my daughter. Our waiter even took a group photo and had a copy for us before we left. Nice touch.

Overly smoky grill blew smoke at 2 out of 5 of our guests like we were at a bonfire. Chef did 2 standards, the onion volcano which fell apart within seconds and the shrimp tail flip into his pocket which couldn’t seem to actually land in his pocket but all over the grill instead. Ordered same drink twice and the second one turned out completely different than the first. The first one was delicious, the second was not. Negligible alcohol, not detectable at all. Not worth the price. Two of our party had upset stomachs the following day. Overall, not going back.

The food was good , it was very noisy and hard to hear the wait staff or chef.. Sadly our rice, which should have been with our meal wasn't brought out until we were all done. The waitress/hostess was late on bringing our drinks

We took our 6 year old son to Benihana to try something fun and different and he really enjoyed it. It's fun to watch the food being made and the food was very good. It's very heavy on the oil and butter, but for a special occasion or once in a while, it's worth it for a different experience.

In 2017 we visited this location 4 times. Very rude staff. They won't get water when requested. When reported to Manager she was even worst. Manager is not even willing to talk with the customers on their mistakes. She said "let me get back" and disappears. And appears back to offer a $7 dessert on my $250 bill. LOL. I would not recommend nor go to this location for at least next few years. Thanks.

The entertainment side of the meal was very captive. The food was the FRESHEST iv'e had. The selection was quite good. The only things I would say about the prices was that of course, you are paying a higher price on the food to cover the entertainment you are getting. If you wear glasses, bring some wet-naps with you since you are sitting right next to the grill as they are cooking the food!

way too cramped, my plate was in front of the person to my right. those tables should only be used for 8 IF they are all the same group. service was way too slow and never got the sushi appetizer that we ordered. the service and quality at this location has gone way down hill and is never consistent.
