Floors were very slippery due to "moisture/humidity" rather than put up signs and take your chances with patrons falling...how about putting down something to dry up the floors? I also am sorry to say your portions are getting visibly smaller, even the zucchini which is pretty inexpensive. This time we were also quite rushed at the finish of our meal even though there were several open tables.

We were once again very disappointed with the reservation process. This is our second time within 2-3 months that we had to wait almost a half hour after our reservation to be seated. VERY frustrating.

The time it takes to dine varies so much. Sometimes we get in at our reservation times-sometimes not like this visit was 12 minutes post reservation time to be seated. Then we were there for 40 minutes post reservation time before there was a chef present. You can't have anything planned afterwards because sometimes it's an hour and sometimes it's 90 minutes. The large booth we were in had pretty bad old cushions and it wasn't comfortable.

The service and food were wonderful at this Benihana. Our server and chef were both very entertaining and professional. They were accommodating re: food allergies, also.

We love that we can sit in a group at a round table with family. It makes it so much easier to converse with each other. The food . . . well, just excellent. We were there for my husbands birthday recently, but we go there just for dinner as well. We also appreciate that we can do everything on line. :)

I enjoyed myself. I bought my son there for his 20th birthday. He was in a car accident the week before and I just wanted to spend time with him all by myself. We enjoyed ourselves. The food was great. The server was so nice. We really had a good time.

Excellent food! Spendy though. Service was slow, needed to ask for things to be cleared. Waitress forgot to take our picture, very disappointing.

Dining experience was great. Just the right size crowd for a weekday. The cost of adding chicken to your meal was a bit much! For $8.00 I could feed a small country! not sure if that was really the cost or if the waitress was just being lazy! Nonetheless I declined! As it turns out I didn't need it anyway the meal was ok without it. A lil too much butter tho... I'm told that's what makes it taste soo good! Overall a great experience!

We love Benihana. We decided to take my niece who's visiting from Canada as she's never had an experience like this yet. She loved it! Two of us have gluten sensitivities which was NOT an issue. We were able to order off the menu and they prepared our meals in the back so there wasn't any cross contamination! Our dinner night was a huge success!
A great place for a birthday celebration
We have been to this restaurant twice now, both for birthday celebrations. It is a unique dining experience with great food. It is a little on the expensive side, which is why we choose it only for special occasions, rather than an everyday meal out choice.

Little more kids than I anticipated. But overall great time and great table
A Birthday Hot Spot
Great service and prompt!!! Loved our chef and our waiter. The food was delicious. My birthday was great.
Chicken dry, shrimp rubbery and rice cold. Felt very rushed by the waiter. Not an enjoyable experience. Won't be going back.
Slow service, poor service, dry food
Party of 5. Had a reservation at 6:30 and was seated at 7. Waited at our table for an hour before a chef was available to cook our food. He didn't do much entertaining, which is what we were paying for, as he was in a rush to get to the next group. The meat was overcooked. Nothing like $30 a plate for dry chicken. This is our second visit. Better entertainment the first visit, have yet to be impressed by the food. At this price range there are many other restaurants with consistently great food. If you choose to go to this restaurant Fri - Sun, I would suggest you visit before 6 p.m. or after 8 p.m.
Went here 2 times in last year. 1st time set at table with family with small kids having a birthday. Bad idea to put 4 adults at kid party. Went for dinner this past week. Service terrible. Bar out of regular beer, ordered other drinks and took forever, ordered appetizers and they came after meal being served. Not planning on going back.

The food and service has been excellent every time we come here. The chef always puts on a great show!
By far the worst chef we have had at Benihana
We had a bad experience at Benihana time. Our chef gave hardly any show and did not speak. Talking the manager was a joke.
Best visit we have had in the last two years. It has gotten too expensive to visit Benihana. We miss the specials!
The tasty food is the main reason for dining at this restaurant.
Great food, great chef, great service.
Matt our chef, although new was amazing a great conversationist. The food he made was also amazing
Good food and service
We went to Benihana to celebrate a birthday. We do this a few times every year. This time was by far the best experience we have had in a long time. The chef changed up the show and did some things we had never seen before. The food was great and we really appreciate the wait/bussing staff as well. The whole experience was wonderful.
Benihana NEVER disappoints!
I've been going to Benihana since BEFORE it was Benihana! Samurai was great and Benihana is equally as fabulous! The Maple Grove location is bright and convenient! Will DEFINITELY be back SOON!!

Came for my daughters 15th bday but wasn't happy with the service. Spent over 300.00 on 6 of us.

My Lady fRIENDs Meet Once a Month and May was My Month. There was 8 of us and The Chef was so wonderful. Can't remember his Name. But He deserves a Raise. All My Friends were just amazed .
Was a good experience, only thing I didn't like was being seated right next to the host stand. Constantly heard the employees conversations.
As a person on a fixed income - ---SS
I will NOT come there again if I have to sit at a table with 2 kids SCREAMING while I'm trying to eat. I brought my 90 year old mother and a 80 year old friend. Kids will be kids but they were NOT out kids and I would never let my kids act like that. Next time I will demand a KIDLESS table and if you can't accommodate me I will not come again.

The waitress was good but she had to many tables to wait on that night and was not as attentive to our table needs like I have seen waitresses there in the past.
Fun for a very special occasion, but overall, it's very expensive to eat there. Especially for a family.
Made a 4:30 reservation, but no one else was there so we waited half an hour to be seated. We went during happy hour. None of the servers knew about the specials. Finally one said it was for the lounge grab a drink and come back to the table. We went to the lounge/bar but were you had to be sitting there for the specials. Half our table upgraded to the chicken fried rice. After our meal was completed we realized we didn't have our white rice. So basically we had rice for desert. Wish we would have chosen a different place to celebrate.
It was fine
They didn't take our picture...I'm kind of anniyed about that. I dont know if they just dont do it anymore or if the waiter just didn't do it .
Great food, fun atmosphere. Only problem is that I made reservations two weeks prior and they called me on my cell phone 10 minutes before the reservation to see if I was still coming but did not say why. We arrived on time but they would not seat us until the other members in our party showed up. While waiting, they asked us two times when they were coming. They were 5 minutes late getting there. I was annoyed by the not seating us without an explanation and having to wait but everything went great after that.
