The wait is horrible! Even with Reservations! I had waited even 2hrs with reservations made! it seems like there is a lot of disorganization going on! I used to go there all the time and now I'm just very disappointed how it is now!

My family and I were there for my daughters 17th birthday. A few members were late and they held our resevation for us! Service and food was great! Alittle pricey, but for a group it wasnt bad! The place was also bubbling with excitement, all the other guests seem to be enjoying thmselves also! My daughter said she loved the place!

Food was great, server was friendly and attentive. The chef unfortunately seemed unenthused. As a chef/performer we expect more of our experience. The food was great, he did all of the "tricks", but seemed tired and not really interested. We even tried talking with him a couple times and he did not want to talk with us either. We enjoy Benihana, but this was not our best experience.

It was my daughter's 14th birthday dinner. We were seated at our specified reservation time and the restaurant was fun, loud and energetic. The food was good and our server was quick to refill drinks and take away dirty plates. We will definitely come back.

I come here all the time. The past few visits have nkt gone well. Maybe the wait staff is thinned out but the timing of the food has been awful. The waiter disappears and the next table seated at same time is onto salads and we still dont have soup. Then the chef was cooking and serving us foid and the salads had never come. We had to send someone up front to ask. For the money you pay (100 bux for 2 dinners) you would think that it would be MUCH better than this.

I was mad that you send out coupons for birthdays but do not honor them!!!We sat down and the manager came out and said Thay could not honor it so we got up and left I will never recommend Benihana's to any of my family or friends I would rather take them to Hibachi & sushi we had a great time there he got his meal free with no coupon

It was great! Especially, our chef: Jason was the best chef ever. He could make whole my family comfortable and give us nice conversation with many jokes and great performance. We would like to request Jason next time again.

First time in years we were at this restaurant on a Saturday evening. Noise level was high because of numerous birthday parties and children 6 - 16.
We have been here on week nights with friends and conversation was never a problem.
We especially enjoy sushi along with dinning at cooking table.

Food was great, although chef did not prepare enough rice for all at table and requested that kitchen bring out 2 more bowls. Strangely I got billed for those separately too. Waiter also took my plate while I was still eating. Was weird, but other than that, I enjoyed the food.

Got an email with a birthday coupon. Immediately think to take my husband for his birthday that night. We get there and the email has NO barcode to use the coupon. they wouldn't do anything about it. A joke to get us in there or???

I had forgotten how enjoyable Benihana's could be. We commented on how fun and entertaining the chefs were when making the food in front of us. It felt like were on a cruise ship or a Mexican resort with a themed restaurant. The food was tasty, but one must be patient, so if you are starving and want to eat immediately this is not the place, as you need time to enjoy the experience and food prep. We were celebrating my adult son's B-day and loved it!
The food and alcoholic drinks are expensive but it was worth it if you go with the flow and interact with the chef at your table and participate.

Food was delicious. Fun atmosphere - lively and noisy. Very crowded though - need to make reservations! Fun to see chef right in front of you preparing your food! Unique and yummy! Lots of food for sure - average entree price is $25.00 - not cheap, but worth it! Have to experience it at least once!

It was the first time I had been in about 10 years as well as my boyfriend. I surprised him for his 56 th Birthday and that was three days ago and he is still talking about what a great time he had!
The chef , Jesus, was superb and friendly. We had a wonderful time!

Our food was delicious and the chef was awesome. I was disappointed that my sons birthday was forgotten even though it was mentioned to our server and in the reservation itself. We went there to celebrate him turning 13 and he was forgotten...

They use too much seasoning (especially salt) in their cooking. next time will ask them not to use salt and pepper. They also need additional ventilation to remove the smell of the oil cooking on the grills. Food was delicious, but too seasoned. All-in-all a good place for a special family occasion.

We had a reservation at 7:45pm and weren't seated until an hour later. Our chef was less than enthusiastic, missed more shrimp tails than he got into his hat, and we sat a table with lots of kids....we like kids, but not necessarily on a Saturday night date night. It was loud, stinky, noisy and not as fun and memorable as in years past. Had to wash all our clothes the next day (left them in the garage because they smelled so greasy and bad. We probably will never go back to Benihana's, what happened to it?

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The food and the service was very good! The only issue I had with Benihana was the entertainment aspect of the dinner wasn't there. In the past I have gone to restaurants similar to Benihana and the chef would put on an entertaining show while cooking the food. Other than that we really enjoyed our time there.
