Benihana - Mall of America Ratings and Reviews

We came in on time but didn't tell the host that we were there so she told me to wait 1/2 hour because there was other party after us...I honestly didn't know if we aren't check in w/ the host, We are losing the reservation and have to wait at least 1/2 hour.
She was very rude and told me to wait...I told her that We are not gonna wait. The restaurant wasn't busy at all that day. She then ignored me.
The other host heard and graciously took us to our table and I thank her for that.
The chef, Sapporo was very nice (although he doesn't say much when We asked questions). Overall, We are happy w/ the service and the foods was very good and tasty! Our server was nice, too!
This is my third times coming to Benihana. I thought I am never coming back after two times w/bad experience in the past...glad I did and it was good!

I couldn't wait to have date night here with my boyfriend as I've been here once and this was going to be his first time. I told him that afterwards we wouldn't need dessert because I couldn't even finish all the food on my plate. He didn't believe me until he couldn't finish his dinner either. He loved it there so much he said next date night we have to go back!

Very wonderful experience need more fried rice. Portion sizes keep shrinking,.. If you give rice. It would not really increase your cost significantly but would really please your customers and make your customers feel like they really received a wonderful value.

The Benihana is my daughters favorite and we love it the staff is nice and helpful on our last visit the hostess tried to seat us and the family that was seated before us was very rude and said we could sit on each side because they wanted to sit in the middle even tho that isn't how it works and the staff handled it very nicely and seated us at a different table they discounted out bill for the rudeness of the other people at the other table they was so nice to us about it and very nice to the rude people they handled everything so nice I can't even tell people how kind the staff was

I have been to Benihana in Maple Grove and had a amazing time and lots of interaction with the chef. This time the chef did not hardly talk and did not put on a show like I am used to. Part of why I go the Benihana is the food is great and the interaction is amazing. I had a friend come with me for her Birthday and with spending over 75 dollars and her 1st time there was not a good one. I had talk about this being an amazing place and this time it was a dud.. My friend asked me when we left . I thank you for taking me out for my birthday but what was so amazing with this place. I felt I had let my friend down and did not get the bang for what I spent.

Honestly it was a bad experience. I will never go back to that location bad service from our waitress couldn't be found ever THAN a child received more chicken than both of our party members whom paid $28 for an entree for 6 pieces of chicken. Fat wasnt cut off steak cut into inch or larger pieces and it wasnt even that busy. Overall just a bad experience unfortunately.

We had the rudest waitress ever. Had a nasty smart mouth comment to say about everything we asked her. When we told the waitress that we didnt like how she was acting in front of my children she became even ruder and when we asked for the manager she failed to go get her so we went and sought out the manager. Then the manager didnt do anything to make us feel like a valued customer, didnt even offer to give us a credit on our bill. The manager her self was rude and disrespectful. I have been going to benihanas for years on a regular occasion and was so insulted at this location that I will NEVER return. Furthermore it was my birthday, my daughters birthday and my niece's birthday and we were all there to celebrate our birthdays and it was totally ruined and my daughter and niece were crying at the table. SUCH A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!

We love Benihana but after going to the Golden Valley location multiple times, this one the host staff is not as friendly and accommodating and the chef that made the food over seasoned many of the dishes and made a couple dishes a bit differently. This is still a favorite spot for family birthday but we will likely stick to going to the other one.

I went to Benihana for my birthday dinner and the food was absolutely fantastic. I ordered the Benihana trio and the beef was so tender it practically melted in my mouth. Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I love this place. This was my 3rd visit and I will continue to dine here. I am never disappointed. The waitress and chef were very polite and professional. You get large portions and I had enough left over for lunch next day. 5 stars !!

My son has been waiting all year to have his birthday dinner here. The hibachi chef seemed like he didn't even want to be there. He hardly said a word and made it not enjoyable for my son. With how much money we spent that day I would think he could have made it more interactive and maybe have a little bit of a personality. The waitress was excellent with refilling drinks and taking orders but we will never come back here again. We will go to Osaka's where they make it a fun hibachi experience.

Classic Benihana. Food was good but not great. Service is as if trained by drill sargeants. Food is served in increments as it is cooked. Kids food was the last item cooked which made for unhappy kids. But the tricks are fun. Overall - classic Benihana.

Our server was ok, but the chef must have been depressed. He didn't put on a show at all and didn't interact. Food prep was rushed and sloppy, not accurate and when he realized he made a mistake his fix was kind of trashy. It's usually a good experience, but this visit was a flop.
