Benihana - Mall of America Ratings and Reviews
I eat often at Benihana MOA (2-3 times a month) This particular dinner was awful. The individuals we were paired with at the table were a complete distraction. Complaining and making rude comments. Instead of the waitress and management handling the situation they ignored them which further escalated the situation. No show was put on for the dinner which in turn ruimed my families dinner. Complete waste of $120. Very disappointed in this experience.
Had one of my best birthday dinners ever! I would give it 5 stars but we did have to wait an hour for the chef to arrive, but we had the delicious onion soup and salad while we waited and the waitress apologized several times. I also used a $30 coupon they sent me for my birthday. When the chef did arrive he was excellent! He was funny and skilled and engaged us all. Overall a wonderful time. I’m going back next year!
I had a reservation at five and was very pleased to have been seated right away when I arrived. Our waitress was amazing, always made sure we were okay and she was very nice. Went for our anniversary dinner and it didn't really feel that special to me since we sit with others and a little noisy but very understandable. Overall the food was great and I enjoyed my experience there. Would be back again
Went for my birthday. I printed off my $30 off coupon and they did not accept it because my printer had a low toner so the quality on the bar code wasn’t great but you could read everything. They told me it was not accepted just before the check was handed out which I think was unfair going the entire dinner thinking I had $30 off. The service was not good and our server in particular had an attitude and never explained to me why she wouldn’t accept my $30 off birthday coupon. I will not be back again and had a negative experience. Hope this does not happen to anyone else.
We celebrate a birthday at Benihana every year. We love the fun atmosphere and the food is always great. This time the only thing lacking was our service. Our server was impossible to find and I asked for water several times (and I never did get any water). She was short a salad and that person was still waiting even as the chef was plating their food. When it came time for the check (which was split between two people) it was a MESS! Items addes that we not ordered, drinks mixed up with another group that was seated along side of us. Our server just seemed generally confused. It made the dining experience a little less than pleasurable.
We had a later reservation and obvious they were in a rush. Waiter was very organized and gave my guest a spoon for soup that was cracked and he cut his lip. He apologized but no compensation. Also gave out wrong bills to our table and had to correct 3 Times. Food was very good.
Would love to leave a rave review but I can not. Long story short your hostess are the worst. Rude. 730pm reservations mean nothing to you. My server saved the day with quick polite service. Dinner was good. Seated 30 min. Late so not the full experience. Not a fan.
Me and my girlfriend, Abby. Have been here many, many times. So much most of the servers know us when they see us. This time we brought a couple more Benihana virgins if you will and they loved every second of it. We also brought our daughter with this time for the first time. Our server who I can not for the life of me remember his name but very tall, happy guy. Always smiling. Says he's the best. We don't doubt that one bit. We like him a lot. He mentioned Red Wing boots during our time there and we plan on hooking him up with a pair. The cook, I believe his name Timeteo. Tim for short was excellent. He often focussed on making our 1 year old daughter entertained and I can say, he did a good job, and were thankful for she can be quite the handful sometimes. Overall a 10/10 again.
Sat at the hibachi, which is always fun. Love the soup and salad. Chicken fried rice was amazing, especially with some yum yum sauce. I ordered filet and lobster tail. My filet was amazing, perfectly seasoned, and incredibly tender but the lobster tail was not good at all. It didn't even taste like lobster, it tasted like an old piece of fish. I ate only a few bites. I would definitely eat there again, I just wouldn't order the lobster tail.
The ambiance was nice and check-in went great! Service was bad, food portions were incorrect and chef had a nasty attitude about how customers wanted their food. Very disappointing for the amount spent and we wasn't able to enjoy it. They didn't take a picture for the birthday people at our table.. One of the worst dining experiences at Benihana.
My boyfriend got food posioning, a meal was taken incorrectly, extremely slow from being seated ( with reservations) to getting drinks to even taking an order. Other party at shared table had out of control obnoxious children.
She had our card for 20 mins before she rang us out. We all stood around our table with jackets on waiting and manager never came over to help or apologize.
Very frustrating for a Sunday night, unbelievably slow and agonizing experience.
Everything was great! Except when a young black man "bus boy" came around with his pants hanging down exposing his underwear during my daughters 13th Birthday Party:( Needless to say we weren't impressed! We informed a waitress and she told him to pull his pants back up.
Not sure what your company's policy/dress code are? But the kid should have known better!
Our service was great, and our food was delicious . The only complaint we had was that we never received our dinner salad, but we didn't realize it until after we left. We were plenty full without it, but it's definitely one of our favorite parts so it was disappointing once we realized! Otherwise, fantastic! Our server was energetic and fun!
Overall the experience was not bad bad the last few times I have visited the service was lacking. This most recent visit our server rushed us through our meal, didn't ask a few people in our party about dessert and got the checks messed up. Our chef was fun and accommodating. I would recommend this location to others but I would tell them not to have too high expectations
