The only reason why we came was for my wifes birthday. She order Yakisoba noodle with her dinner and never got them. We also ordered steamed rice witch the server forgot to bring us. Service is always a hit or miss, sometimes its good but this time it was a miss. I know no one probably reads this but thought I would give it a shot.

The stove was never turned on so it took forever to start cooking. We ended up having to move tables and there were no comps for the inconvinience. We had starving little kids and I expected some small quick appetizers for the kids since it took 2 hours to cook our food. The cook and waiter meld screaming at each talking across the room which was distracting to an already starving group of people. We usually have a great time but not this time.

Only acceptable after 7. Go earlier and it is fine. Later, it is only okay.

Great food and show, but the ventilation in parts of the restaurant was lacking. With the way they cook, the garlic and onions make it hard see and breath at times. They are busy every night so its always an issue.

We came to celebrate Father's Day with our Godparents. The meal was wonderfully prepared by Malik. We requested him from a prior visit and he did not disappoint. We always enjoy coming back and he made it all the more eventful.

We usually get great service and exceptional food at Benihana's. This time was a disaster. The chef was messy, clumsy and dangerous. He tried juggling his knives and cooking utensils and kept dropping them. When cooking the fried rice he lost one egg off the stove and shattered a rice bowl while throwing it in the air. At that point he had to clean up the broken china and start over from the beginning. The second attempt at cooking the fried rice wasn't much better. When he was passing out the food he lost his balance and nearly fell onto the stove! There was no show and his inexperience really showed. For the most part the food was o.k. but some of our group refused to eat the chicken because it wasn't cooked all the way through.

Everything was wonderfull untill the bill the waitress told us to tip according to the whole amount. I know that. How rude.

Benihana is my husband's favorite restaurant so his pick for Father's Day. In spite of reservation did have to wait about 15 minutes past our table time but not bad. The chef was nice but definitely not the best that we have had at previous visits. The waitress forgot everyone's salad but apologized profusely at the end of the meal and comped us a few ice creams. Manager did come by and apologize as well so all good. The meal itself was good but not the best I have had at Benihana. I upgraded my usual of Rocky's Choice to filet mignon and it was a bit tough; not as tender as I have had elsewhere. Still love Benihana and will give them another try in the future.

The cook at our table was wonderful... B-RAD. He was funny, entertaining, and skillful. The attendants for our table were prompt with the water re-fills. The group picture was a nice touch. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

The thing I was disappointed with was were there to celebrate a birthday we were told we get aa birthday song a picture and a free desert spent almost $90 for two of US and we did not get any of those things and I told 3 different people we were celebrating my husband birthday so that was a disappointment.

Had a reservation for 12:15. Weren't brought to our table until 12:45! What's the point of a reservation if they aren't going to seat you for half an hour. This NEVER fails at Benihana!

Wonderful meal, as usual! We went on a Monday at 6:00pm and I was amazed how busy it was. Waited about 15 minutes past our reservation, the only thing slightly negative. I had steak, chicken and shrimp combo. Fabulous! Fried rice is a must!!

We were disappointed. We were there for a special occasion, but our chef appeared to be very inexperienced. She was dropping utentials, and seemed clumsy. The combo I ordered had steak and chicken and when I ate the chicken it was rubbery and I wondered if it was not completely cooked. For the price, I expected a far better experience. I doubt we will return anytime soon as we generally don't spend this much money for a meal without an expectation of great food and service.

I do not go here often. But, I really should. Everyone is friendly, good with younger kids and great at explaining for how it works to first time customers!

This place is always fun for a special occasion or birthday celebration with friends. The cooking show is always fun, although this last visit was slightly disappointing as our chef was clearly not as skilled as the other chefs. The food and service was still very good. I highly enjoyed their birthday song, dessert, and photo gift. YOU MUST MAKE RESERVATIONS IN ADVANCE, unless you don't mind waiting a ridiculously long period of time.

Took a friend here to for her first time to celebrate her birthday. Our table was full with other parties. We had talked Benihana up so much to our friend and she was so excited. The only thing the chef did for a "show" was spin the egg on the spatula.... He did nothing else except say outloud every thing he was adding. While the grill across from us had a flame volcano going and had was being interacted with... Very disappointed this visit....

Lean, delicious food. Just wish that the service including being seated at the table were more efficient, quicker.
Lots of fun
I love Benihana! You get to witness some excellent knife skills and other talents while the food is being prepared in front of you. Went for a birthday and they give you a free small dessert and picture of your special time.

In the day, Benihana was a relatively sedate setting with chefs whose teppanyaki knife skills were unsurpassed. Eight to ten people surrounded the grill, while the star of the show (excluding the food) was the teppanyaki chef. He (and it was always a Japanese male chef who often spoke little English) would put on quite a show: juggling knives, cooking food to perfection, and serving food, often by throwing it, yet never missing a plate. Grills had vents over them to take away the steam and drifting odors and food particles. The current Benihana is quite different. No vent, no Japanese chefs, no perfect performances, and definitely not sedate. It was noisy, the chef was adequate, but not spectacular, and the food, though very good, wasn't quite the same. So, why did I rate the experience so highly? It was the fun of celebrating a special event with good friends, while still getting dinner and a show. Had a great time, and, for a special occasion, would probably go back again (even if my clothes smelled of my dinner afterwards).
long wait time/slow service
Even with a reservation we had to wait over a half hour for a table. The waiting area is very small and crowded. Greeting staff was not friendly. Once seated service was very slow. Our chef was good, and the taste of the food was very good, but part of our meal was forgotten and served at the very end. Don't know if I can recommend to others.
Once a year Treat!
I love Benihana! I go there once a year in my Birthday month, since I live 39 minutes away. They have a Chefs Table coupon, where you get $30 free! I did not spend a dime on my own meal! You just bring a friend and make them buy an entree and then you're golden! Love this generous coupon!

We didn't sit at a cook station table. We sate in the sushi bar. The food was not the same and a little dissapointing. I will always choose to sit at a grill station in the future! Also our waitress was not very attentive. Usually we LOVE this place. Not our normal review.

Our cook had some great tricks. We enjoyed it very much. Everything was cooked to our specifications . We will definately tell others about this experience.
Long wait with resevations
The cook got lost on his was to work or so he said. No I am sorry, nothing just a very long wait . I ordered the new york steak medium and it was bleeding when he put it on my plate

Food was good. Atmosphere was stressful. A customer threw his food at his chef complaining food was over cooked so chef was removed. Our clothes smelled so bad we had to wash everything the next day. Poor ventilation!

Benihana's is a great place to eat at. You get dinner, and a show. The chefs are very accommodating, and friendly. My kids were very entertained and loved the food....even my picky eater ate well! We love Benihana's!

Benihana is an EXPERIENCE everyone should have at least once!
Always a fun time
I've only been to Benihana a few times and it's always a good night out. The food is delish and pretty healthy. It's fun watching them cook on the grill and do tricks with the utensils. Highly entertaining time. This location is easy to get to, very clean, and the staff has been great every time I've been here. I am positive I'll be back.

Our waiter Troy was amazing! Best expierence at Benihana!
Good food, fair service
The food was great and our server was awesome. Made a reservation for 6:30pm and was told that the entire party needed to be there in order for us to be seated. Once the entire party was there still had to wait 15-20 minutes before we got a table. What is the point of making a reservation if you can't be seated at the time you requested?
