Celebrated a birthday and Benihana's did not disappoint. The food was tasty as usual however, the chef was below average. The difference in the chefs skill levels are obvious and that is the only negative about this place.

This was an important day, my birthday , the cook was quite and seemed as if he was ready to go home it was pretty late and I understand he might of had a long day but I had my mom and best friend that had never been before and I just wish they could have experienced a better service a chef that was energetic and happy to do the job.. also food was nit that good I ended up not eating half of it .. I would say this was the worst experience

The wait time to be seated was long, even with our reservation. The server was new and inexperienced; she indicated that we was her second table since she started and she didn't have anyone assisting her. She was extremely slow, she didn't understand or learn the menu well, and she was inattentive to our table; she slow on assisting us to place our appetizer orders, and slow on refilling our drinks. And the chef took an enormously long time to come and cook for our table. And the food was immeasurably salty. The Chef's entertainment portion was not up-to-par in which we were use-to seeing at a Benihana. This particular visit & experience was overall disappointing and unimpressive.

I our experience was excellent. Taylor our head chef did an amazing job . Food was prepared perfectly. The rest of the wait staff was excellent also. We were fortunate this time to be at a table with all adults. I have nothing against children but sometimes it nice to be with just adults.

We had an reservation or two and they wanted to seat us with 7 other people around his tiny table. There would e no elbow room o even eat. Very disappointing. We asked o be seated elsewhere could guarantee less people at the table. They need to rethink their seating arrangement.

One of the nicest Bennihanna's I've been to and I've been to at least 15 different ones. Very upscale and modern look for a Benni's I loved it. Excellent customer service friendly staff. If I lived in Arizona I would go again and again.

We have been going to Benihana's for over 45 years it is our special occasion place and when we just want a great meal. My son grew up on Benihana's for his birthdays he has loved the place since he was 4 and now he is 29. The food this time was a little over cooked but maybe the chef was off tonight. The main reason we go to Benihana is the food no matter where we are it has been consistent and you always meet nice people at the table.

Despite notifying and reminding the waiter, chef and manager on multiple occasions, my daughter’s birthday was ignored while another child, who was at our table, birthday was the focus of the entire meal. The other family even pointed out that there were two kids with birthdays at the table. That was a bummer – so much for going to Benihana for special occasions. Also, the carpet is very dirty which makes you feel that other things may be neglected. That being said when you are sitting at the cooktop and the chef is doing a good job obeying all the food-handling regulations you worry less. I ordered Seafood Diablo and several of the ingredients listed on the menu were missing. I asked for this spicy dish extra-spicy. My dish was cooked last (no big deal) but then when it was served and others were finishing, our waiter started working another table and I couldn’t get a drink to save my life. Also, I know the chefs have to learn but our chef was noticeably less skilled compared to the other chefs on shift this evening. That’s just bad luck of the draw, but seemed to be the way this night was going. All in all, it was a very bad experience.

This is the third year in a row that my friend and I have celebrated my birthday there. It has become something of an anticipated tradition. Everyone is always friendly and eager to do whatever is necessary to ensure an enjoyable visit. I foresee our spending many more happy birthdays at this establishment.

I am a big Benihana fan but I am not sure who is running this location. Its gotten dirty and the food just isn't as good other locations. I even first hand witnessed a chef leave the restroom without washing his hands. what a shame.

Although I had a reservation we had to wait ~25min beyond our reservation time to be seated. No explanation was given, which was frustrating. Once we were seated everything went well, server was very attentive and fun, chef was great and food was delicious.

Had a great time as always at Benihana! First time I ordered the teriyaki beef, beef was a little tough served medium rare but the flavor was great. Probably wouldn't order that again , but wanted to try something new. My daughter ordered the Filet Mignon and Colossal shrimp. It was delicious and tender. Our chef had a dry, funny personality and was very entertaining. Will be back!

This chain location has been visited for all of our family BD celebrations family for as long as I can remember. While they have had issues in the past (like refusing to serve my 90-yr-old mother a birthday martini because she did not have her driver's license i.d. with her), they seem to have gotten it back together. Wish the chefs had comparable skills, but sometimes the "beating heart" is fun no matter how many times you've seen it. We will be back!

This was for my sons birthday and although we requested the birthday club for him (multiple times) no meal coupon ever came. The food was just OK and we thought it was a bit overpriced. Staff acted like they had much better things to do than serve the customers.

I've been here multiple times with my family and friends. Food is always great, and service is usually too. There were four of us in my party, service started off great until hot soup was spilled over myself by the server, who immediately cleaned the soup off of the table and gave me napkins to clean myself. She apologized for her mistake, I would've thought that the manager on duty would've come over to apologize as well, but that never happened . Service continued as usual, and I went home with a stained white E-40 t-shirt, and khakis. Needless to say, I couldn't enjoy my meal or the show, because that incident put me in a sour mood.
