Waiter and cook were very nice. Unfortunately the cook took too long cooking, overcooked the chicken and steak. The chicken was dry and had no flavor, he missed some of the seasonings. Steak was hard and too much teriyaki sauce.
Honestly I was not satisfied with the food at all. :-( I've been there in difference occasions and had a better experience.

You can get one of the cozy booths by the bar for a more secluded meal or sit around the hibachi in a group for an interactive dining experience. You can tailor it to meet your mood. We enjoyed the seafood dishes more than the others. It was freshly made and delicious. The wait staff attending us accommodated our requests without hesitation and made the evening enjoyable.

No hot tea ever offered. Food prep took too long and the first served food cooled quickly. Meats were chopped into micro pieces losing all their essence. Had to ask for spoons for the children to use. Birthday celebration was mediocre when only two staff attended to sing happy birthday, as contrasted to a nearby table having six or more loudly singing staff. This was obvious to our child sharing her birthday, who asked me why we did not have all those staff singers at our table! Also, the birthday ice cream desert was hardly sufficient for nine people!

The food was great our cook Carlos was very professional and attentive to all our needs. The waitress was a delight. My fruit punch bowl was very fruity and filling. I could not eat all my food so I took it for lunch the next day. It was my birthday lunch/dinner so after we ate they gave me vanilla ice cream. I give it a 5 star restaurant!

Excellent experience. I have been to make similar venues but this was the best. The food quality was awesome and the cook used very little butter. Usually they slab on tons of butter but not here. I had the filet and chicken and the quality was very good. Definitely worth a visit

The food was good but we had to wait 15 min for our table because the server hadn't arrived and was late for work. Although we were a large party and asked to be seated to at least order sushi, they were unable to accommodate us.

I guess we got a new chef. He didn't speak English or was able to prepare the meal by gluten free standards and the waiter was helping him cook. No show either- No shrimp in the hat. No volcano. No egg roll. No beating heart.

The food is very good, the steak was tender and tasty. The chef was entertaining and efficient.
It's noisy and there is no privacy for small groups. There were kids running around which was unsafe and the parents were loud. If you have a group of five or six it's a fun place. Not for couples.

Benihana always delivers, albeit they didn't have any of the wine selections we asked for in stock. Wish the experience was more authentic but the service was good, particularly the friendly staff like Alex at the reservations area. Friendly & professional service makes all the difference!

We went to Benihana for my wife birthday. The four was great and not too expensive. The waiter was great, the chief was was good. We enjoyed the trip to benihana very much. I would recommend people to visit you, they will find a warm and romantic evening.

We had reservations and still waited over an hour before we started our soup for the meal. While I was video taping my son as they sang Happy Birthday to my child, the manager put her arm in front of my camera three times to clear the table (which was not done before); so, I could only see an arm instead of my child and the reaction of my child while they were singing.

The service was horrible. We sat down at a table 1st one on the right. We were the first to arive the server strolls over and asks what would we like to drink and order. No hello, no how are you, no smile, no nothing. After that it just went down hill. She hardly came over, I had to ask the cook for a new drink. And when she did she was so unpleasant that it just made things worse. There were three business men in front of us I guess they said a joke and she obviously wasn't in any joking mood so she was livid the rest of the time we were there. Like why do we have to pay for his poor judgement. I spoke with the manager and she had already alerted him of the situation to which my question was if she felt that uncomfortable where she can't even be polite to the rest of the table then why didn't you change the server. At one point she even came over and yelled at the guy the whole table was stunned. She was completely unprofessional and just made my experience horrible. I've been in the industry for over 10 years and I understand we all have bad days; but this was just horrible! Probably won't be back at this location.
