Food was fine. This particular Benihana seems to struggle more than the one we frequent more often. They were out of two different beers we ordered; including basic Colts Light and then a Japanese beer. We had eight people in our group and the server charged us for 9 fried rice sides. Also one of members of our group who ordered chicken could not eat it as the chicken was unusually and oddly chewy. Rest of group enjoyed their meals.

Had steak filet and scallops. Steak was too well done asked fir rate by the time they cut and stored it was medium

Latira was our server and she was outstanding. She went way above and beyond to make sure everyone was taken care of. Sammy was our chef and it was awesome to see a different show at Benihana. Thanks for a great evening!

We had reservations but it still took about 20 minutes to seat us. They seemed a bit back up so appetizers came out as he was cooking dinner and bar drinks came slowly. Food was good and service was friendly enough

We celebrated my 8 & 10 year old's birthdays here with some fiends. Everyone had a great time and loved their food! 4 of the 6 kids there said Benihana was more fun than Nickeloden Universe. Great price on kids meals - $10 for 5 courses?!! Can't be beat!

Food is overpriced. The cook was a bit messy; one thing is to purposefully throw the food around in a controlled, calculated way, and another to carelessly and accidentally spread food all over the grill. Also, don't throw shrimp tails at guests - at some point the cook started throwing shrimp tails to people at the table; he did it in a humorous, good natured way, but it was borderline annoying.

Reservations made easily, waiter confused the cook as to who ordered what. Food was average and over priced. Looking up from the table there are square holed sound reducing panels hanging around the oven, completely dusty and gross. Everything needed dusting. I will go back to the Golden Valley location in the future. Noisy as windows were open to the MOA.
Like other reviewers, even though we had ...
Like other reviewers, even though we had a reservation, they still gave us a pager, and had to wait an additional 15 minutes. They wouldn't give the pager until the whole group had arrived.
Drinks took quite awhile to be refilled
We had a 730 reservation, they started cooking at the table at 830, so we had a very late dinner.
Not worth the money in my opinion.

We went here to celebrate my moms 60th birthday and had a great time. The food was phenomenal and our servers (Al and Martin) were top notch. Al had a sense of humor while Martin prepared our absolutely delicious food. The filet mignon is to die for along with every other food I tried from our group. The fried rice is beyond the best I've ever had. I can't wait to go back sometime!!! Make sure to do the hibachi table experience!

I wish I could rate the service of our chef different than the service of the host staff. The host staff was incredibly rude, offered little help with our reservation, and sat us 22 minutes after our 4:00pm reservation. I have heard that this is a common problem with this location and wish that they would address this. Rather frustrating. Service staff and Chef however were incredible!

We didn't even get to eat. Our reservation was for 8pm, arrived at7:55 only to be told it will be a 15-20 min wait. Okay, no big deal. 8:25 we still weren't seated so my husband asked why and the little hostess was super rude and then told us it will be another 25 min so we went somewhere else. Thanks

We made reservations for our 23rd Wedding Anniversary but still had to wait 20 mn after arrival, would have liked to have a steak chicken lobster option not on the menu as such, chef was friendly and entertaining, gal serving us was outstanding but did not ask us why we were dining with you, just asked about birthday. Kind of disappointing, probably would not come back:(

The food and the service were excellent the only problem was the noise level coming
from the table next to ours. There were approximately 11 very loud folks who had
no consideration for other customers in the restaurant trying to have a peaceful
dinner. I believe when groups that big come in they should be setup off by themselves.

Eight of us sat around the griddle and the Seating was way too tight!! The chef was not too friendly but other servers were very nice. They let us bring in a birthday cake which was nice. We reserved because of a birthday celebration coupon and then found out we couldn't use it as only good Monday-Thursday.
