Benihana - Atlanta - Buckhead Ratings and Reviews
I've been to this location several times ...
I've been to this location several times and this has to have been one of my worst restaurant experiences ever. The waitress was absolutely terrible. She made several mistakes on the order and the Chef had to correct it. The Chef, while cooking, had to clear the salad and soup bowls because she disappeared. She would disappear for long periods of time, so many times that the Chef had to inquire with the manager of her whereabouts. The Chef appeared to be overwhelmed by her lack of service to the point that he got the orders mixed up and served guests the wrong food. To top the visit off, the waitress used my card to pay for another guest's meal. Management offered no real apology, just reassurance the my card wouldn't be charged for the other guest's meal.

Service was not good. We waited 20+ minutes before a server came over to take our drink orders. We did not receive our soup/salad until the chef came out. At the end of the meal, I gave the server my credit card and she did not come back to the table until I flagged her down. She told me that she didn't have my credit card. She & the manager spent about 10-15 minutes looking for the credit card that I gave her. We were not given a discount for the distress that they caused. The manager gave me his card and told me to call him if unauthorized charges appeared on my card. I was not satisfied with this answer and I will not be dining at this location again.

This was the worse dining experience I have had in a long time. It was my parents' 75th birthday celebration (mom and dad). we had a party of 11. it took an hour to be seated despite having reservations. It took another 30 minutes just to get water. The service was horrible. The only saving grace was the chef. Chef Angel was awesome and entertaining.

Benihana chefs used to be quite entertaining with their knife work and originality, no more. Quite boring actually.
The food was disappointing too. Overpriced and a bit too salty.
Servers were great, but it's not the Benihana of old.

Benihana is one big room and not very intimate. The waiter and chef were very nice, but we waited an hour for the chef to even start on the grill which was way too long. Then, when the chef did come they had forgotten to turn on the grill so we had to wait another 15 minutes. The manager brought free sushi, but didn't seem to know what was going on and was not very apologetic. I would not recommend it to others, really it is overpriced and i would rather go to a different hibachi place.

I visited for my birthday. We were seated promptly which I was surprised because there typically is a few hours wait, however, we had to wait for 15-20 minutes before anyone came to the table to take drink orders! The service was horrible, he not only messed orders of people sitting at our table, he messed up the orders of the people sitting at the table next to us. The cook had to smooth over the situation and calm nerves. The evening would have been a bust were it not for the cook. He did a great job of keep spirits up! I've come to this location a few times and the service seems to just keep getting worse.

Normally our experience is great. Our recent visit wasn't the best. Fast seating with reservations, slow waitress who stopped taking orders to give a waiting table their checks, our courses overlapped and we had to ask for the soup course and dessert. The chef was great as usual.

I love Benihana food however this restaurant was filthy from the bathroom without any toilet paper to the ceiling tiles that were soaked with water and were replaced while we ate. It had been getting bad over the years but it has reached an all time low. It will take a long time for me to go back again. It was just terrible.

It took as an hour and a half for lunch. We received our soup and salad right away but it took another 30 minutes for the rest of the table to get theirs. After an hour and a half, I had received my steak which was doused in garlic butter but not my shrimp. Finally after complaining we were told there was a food allergy at the table and that was why our shrimp and scallops came last. No one told us this plus it still shouldn't have taken that long.

I normally go to the downtown location but decided to give this one a try for my grandson's birthday. We had wonderful time. Our reservation was at noon on Saturday and we arrived around 1145. We were immediately seated and fortunate enough to not have to share our table with anyone else. Our server was very pleasant and very attentive to our needs. The star of the show was our chef Nelson. He was very personable and we laughed the entire time. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was great. I will definitely return. Oh, and of course we liked the free parking.

This restaurant has really gone down hill over the years. The customer service is subpar. We arrived at 6:30 for our reservation and were not greeted by our waiter until 7:05, only after I went to the maitre'd stand and complained. The manager was rude. We did not receive drinks until 7:20. Save your money and go to another restaurant.

The ONLY problem that we had was the hibachi where we were seated literally blew smoke in our faces - the 4 of us at that end of the hibachi were coughing and having some difficulty breathing - the family at the other end work at this Benihana and knew of this problem when the A/C is on - It was bad enough that IF we return, we will request another hibachi with better
ventilation - it could not be healthy !!!! Evidently, your management knows of this problem as the husband at the end of the table that was NOT effected said that it is a well-known fact!
Be warned it is very difficult to change ...
Be warned it is very difficult to change a reservation and if you are even one minute late they will cancel your reservation and you will wait and wait sometimes for well over an hour. Apparently it is ok for you to wait 15-30 minutes for a chef to appear!

The person who paid for the meal put $3.00 on the tip line to be deducted from her credit card. However, a 1 was added and it appeared to be a $13 tip. This was not correct and her credit card company alerted her of the issue. Additionally, we did not receive our soup and had to ask for it at the end after the meal was completely over and the table had actually been cleared.

We went to Benihana for a lunch before heading to the High Museum. This is not the place you go if you are in a hurry. The service is a little slow but the food and 'entertainment' more than makes up for this! My kids and I really enjoyed our experience here. I have a VERY picky eater and he really enjoyed his meal and was making plans to return!

Staff wasn't the best we sat for 25 minutes and no one came by to take our drink orders at least, it wasn't busy at all for us to get serviced poorly, the chef cooking our meal was the best part, he had a lot of personality and was great!

I LOVE the food. That is the only reason I visit either of the Atlanta Benihana locations. Unfortunately dining here is no longer a pleasurable experience. Benihana needs to reclaim their brand and clean up some of these underperforming locations. A reservation here is of little value. No need to be on Open Table. You are just as well to just show up.

We waited an Entire HOUR, from the time we sat at the table before we got our SOUP and SALAD/before the cook came. The Cook "PEDRO" his cooking skills are excellent. We was very pleasant and entertaining to the children. Any special cooking request we had like adding certain sauces to food while cooking, etc... he did it with no resistance or hesitation.

This was my annual birthday celebration trip. I always enjoy dining at Benihana. The food is always delicious. The ambiance is always wonderful. This trip was really enhanced by our Chef Frederick. Frederick was the most entertaining chef that I have had since I started patronizing Benihana. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We can't wait until our next visit!

i brought my wife there for her birthday. The food was great as always .
Sorry we miss Frederick who we normally sit with but got a chance to speak with him going out the door.
Can't wait till our next visit!!!!
Being n our 60-70 we like to come early so we can get back home and out of traffic. The manager was so accommodating.....
Thanks for making my wife day special!!!!!

Food was delicious as it always is at Benihana. The people at our table were not so nice. The chef was good but he didn't really go the extra mile to entertain. It might have been thanks to the surly women sitting next to our party but it was a little disappointing.
