Benihana - Cherry Hill Ratings and Reviews
It was my first time dining at Benihana. ...
It was my first time dining at Benihana. It was my birthday and I wanted to try something new. I ordered the frozen non-alcoholic Strawberry Passion Fruit for my beverage. There were so many choices of food to choose from; it was hard. I decided to go with the Teriyaki Chicken and Hibachi fried rice. I was in awe while watching the chef cook in front of us and doing little tricks. It was really a nice experience. Our waitress was very funny and nice as well. I will definitely be back soon!

THEY WERE OUT OF CERTAIN ITEMS ON THE MENU( TOFU) . DIDN'T HAVE SUFFICIENT DISHES FOR SOME OF THE FOOD ITEMS. NOT ENOUGH RICE BOWLS. IT WAS A SATURDAY NOT OVERLY PACKED. WE INDICATED A B-DAY NEVER ACKNOWLEDGED. DID NOT OFFER PHOTOS. SEEMED ILL PREPARED FOR THE EVENING. SECOND DRINK REQUESTS TOOK A LONG TIME

There was a drastic difference between my trip in February, 2015 and my trip in July, 2016. The server was fine but the cook didn't give us a show. He showed his annoyance with the other 2 people at our table. The food was nowhere near the quality that it was in 2015. It was almost like the place was on the verge of bankruptcy. I had no words when the GM came around to ask how everything was. I'm sorry to say that I will not be returning.

Our local Japanese restaurant closed and we have tried several attempting to find one that measured up to Sakura. The food at Benihana was very good and their service was great. The only thing was that the bill was twice what we paid at our local restaurant.
We will go again for our next special occasion

Always a treat to take the family or a nice date night. However, the experience depends on who you get as the table chef. The ol' volcano & choo- choo with onions is way old. They Ned some fresh tricks. Place is very noisy.
AWESOME, AS ALWAYS!
Always great food and a fun time. It's not all about the 'show'. The Sushi is yummy. On the Hibachi grill, try the steak, scallops and lobster, along with a premium sake. It's all cooked to perfection in front of your eyes with a flair. This time we brought an 8-month old baby girl, who laughed and stared wide-eyed as our chef built a flaming onion volcano. Ask for Paul or Peter if you can get them. They're the most experienced chefs, but all of them are good!
Pricy: service, taste overall ambience was great!
First time at Benihana and we have been at other hibachis. We loved and enjoyed our meals! Paid $241 for 7 people but totally worth it! Definitely going back. The taste of the food was unparallel. I cannot describe it. You could taste every flavor from the garlic to the subtletly of the buttle on our lobster. The steak were on point: not dry or overly cooked. And even our autistic son was delighted to try new things. Thank you Eliseo and both Jennies! Recommend this restaurant 100%
Not the right attitude
We have always enjoyed the Benihana experience. We recently enjoyed the Orlando Benihanna but this one did not have nearly the "customer service" attitude that Orlando had. The initial hostess at the table was cordial, polite and professional and took our drink order in a timely fashion. The real problem was with the Chef. He had a "grumpy old man" attitude. We had two young children and came from a dance recital because the kids enjoyed the Orlando experience greatly. This Chef just went thru the motions - no flare or attention to the kids....just a real boring event for everyone around the table. At the table behind us, the Chef was doing the Volcano with the Onions and more...ours did not of that. It just seemed like he was having a bad day and we should all suffer. For the amount of money we spent, we should have gotten a "smile" and more customer focused service.
Just an okay experience
We went to celebrate my son's 10th birthday with our whole family for lunch. The wait staff was lacking in refilling the drinks and generally looked uninterested. They ran out of one of thier signature tea drinks. The "chef" didn't give us a show or say much of anything to us. He just cooked the food in front of us. We have been to other restaurants like this and they have put on an exciting show while cooking the food. Very disappointed. We will not be returning

Went out for my aunt's birthday. Went a little early to take part in happy hour before having dinner. Happy hour was great although our server seemed a little frustrated with some of our requests. Once seated with two other guests, we ordered drinks, appetizers and then our meals. Dinner was great, as well as, the overall service. Will definitely go back again.
Cherry Hill Nj location
I have had great times in the past at this location. However, my last visit was disappointing. I had a resveration for 7pm. We were seated at 730. We were handed our menus and drink orders we taken. Once our drinks came, we place our orders. Then waited 45 minutes for the chef to appear. He was not prepared , running out of both sauces and had to leave to get more. They chef lacked personality. When we placed out order we were told there was no up charge for the chicken fried rice. That was wrong.
We spoke to the manager and the up charge was removed. We also complained about the long wait. Nothing was done about it. Very disappointed. Next time I will go the PA location.
Our family loves this restaurant. We have all of our family birthday dinners here.
We have been coming to this restaurant for over thirty years.
I did not see management as much and the crew appeared understaffed no matter what day that you dine. On my last two visits our soup was luke warm. I kindly brought it to the attention of our waitress and she took back all of our soups and it was returned fresh but just as cold.
This time we dined with 3 other couples and we all noticed luke warm soup again. Some of them did not even eat their soup.
On my way out I did find management and talked about my last two visits but was told it was the new way they are keeping their soup.
I hope that this temporary as we really enjoy eating there
Enjoy your dining
Poor service very good food
I arrived at 6:45 for my weekday reservation.Was told they were running 5 minutes late.I was seated in 15 but that wasn't do bad/The waitress came over timely and took our drink order.Although she made a few mistakes they were easily correctable.We then wait from 7pm and al most 8:30 for a chef to come over.The waitress kept coming over to ask if we wanted a more drinks.Which we didn"t.When i asked her where was the chef she just shrugged her shoulders.When he finally arrived the food was very good he prepared it well but wan"t very entertaining and he made one mistake cooking something we didn't order but he gave it to us with no charge so that wasn't a problem for us.This was my first(and last)visit to this restaurant.I was drawn in by a birthday promotion coupon which promised to take 30.00 off the check.When the check came they forgot to take off the coupon which they asked for when i was seated.They did fix this without much problem.The staff is friendly enough and they tried their best but they were overwhelmed by being understaffed for the restaurants clientele.Let me point out that the restaurant was far from full as mnore then 1/2 the tables were empty.In summation very good food very nice staff but not worth sitting for 1 1/2 hours to eat.
Long Time Customer
I have been coming to Benihana for at least 36 years in all different locations , west coast . Florida, NJ, even in the UK and the service was usually very good and food was great. Last Monday the service was poor and an allergy was disregarded. The waitress disappeared and we had to get a manager to fix the soup for the entire table (2 different parties) it was served cold. We then had to get another waitress to bring white rice to the table. When the chef started to cook I said I was allergic to fish expecting him to use a separate spatula for the Salmon he was cooking but he took no notice and used the same utensil for all the cooking. As a result I took entire dinner (anything cooked after the fish went on grill) home for someone else to eat and as it was a birthday celebration (MINE) disappointment doesn't quite cover it. I don't like to have to make a scene and cause a fuss but will not spend ant more money at the Cherry Hill location.
A time to remember
We had an amazing time. We arrived in town, ahead of our reservations, and staff graciously rescheduled us for an earlier time. The accommodations were well suited for the occasion. Jose, our chef, was cordially skillful and made guests feel comfortable. The food and ambiance were great! Will definitely be back for our next celebration!
