Overall Benihana’s is a place that I eat at during a weekend night, since their food and experiences are consistent. The only feedback I would give is regarding their managing skills. They overbook reservation quite often and when they announce to be behind they won’t guarantee their sitting time, and you wait about an hour before serving.

It was a great experience! Loved our very nice and professional server and our chef was great the food was DELICIOUS!! We had a wonderful time all made possible by everyone we encountered from reservation making to arrival at the restaurant all the way through the evening. We had a perfect time! They helped make my daughter’s birthday dinner a great success!! Not 1 bad thing to say about any of it!! We’ve celebrated every birthday for my daughter at Benihanas for quite a number of years, it’s her traditional birthday wish and her favorite place to go for any celebration, so we know Benihana and this location with this particular Chef is one of our favorites. He is excellent! Our servers are sometimes hit or miss but our server last night was awesome!! Great job to the management for having such exceptional staff!

The food was OK as my steak, ordered as medium well came out medium rare. Before someone says that I should have told the chef I was sitting at the bar working on something (no alcohol) and didn't see the chef at all.

I went in using a $30 off certificate for my birthday so not the end of the world but again just not as good as it should have been for a $45 dinner.

Service was horrible. Two hours for lunch with only four of us at the table. Took 45 minutes to get salad and then another half an hour to get a chef. Then we waited another 20 minutes to get friends birthday ice cream. Most ridiculous Benihana service I’ve ever seen in my life and I frequent all of the others

I havent been to Benihana in year so it was a nice change. It was definitely the smallest one I have ever been too. The alcoholic drinks were a tad bit weak and the iced tea was too heavy on the artificial sweatener. They onion soup taste has changed dramatically over the years...it tasted more like french onion soup broth from a box. Our hibachi was supposed to come with mushrooms and there were zero mushrooms....only onions and zuchini. The wait staff was really nice. The chef was fun too even though it was a little bit of a sloppy presentation.

We came to celebrate the September birthdays in our family. There were 6 of us. Our waitress was either bored or there for the money. Don’t get me wrong. She wasn’t rude, but she had the personality of a paper napkin. Our hibachi chef was sweet, but half the fun of hibachi is the chef’s show. Which fell flat. Thank goodness that the food was yummy! My husband was not happy that they didn’t clear our dinner plates before they served dessert. Like I said, our waitress was not top notch. She also served our soups by putting her whole hand over the bowl instead of holding it from the side of the bowl. Ugh.

We have been many times and have always enjoyed the food. This time, the soup was extremely salty and both dinners were extremely peppery. So much so that we were unable to eat it. Our server, Branden was wonderful. He spoke to his manager and they were willing and able to remake both entrees. We were very appreciative. The second time, the food was delicious once again! We wouldn't let a chef with a very heavy hand keep us from returning in the future.
