I took my friend there for her birthday with a group of people and Ryan G was our chef. He was the absolute best and made it such a fun time. It was the most fun I've ever had at a restaurant and the service was great. All of the employees we met there were so nice and funny.

I made reservations for my birthday, I was very disappointed in the service!
1. We were seated LATE
2. It took over 30mins for our drinks
3. We were rushed to order
4.Our Chef took a long time to come
5. The table needed to be cleaned there was a BUG, the waiter was not listening to us to clean the table.
6. We received our food, and felt rushed to eat, we were offered containers to go, because it was near closing time, which we had no idea of.
7. We had to ask the waitress to snap our photo, she snapped it twice in urgency and both photos were blurry.
It has been a long time since we dined in the restaurant, we had a party of 14 people and with ALL the MONEY we paid the service was poor, the waitress had an agitated look on her face. We felt unwelcome at the door, I had even made a phone call to ask if we could have 2 table close together I was told no until management was requested to get on the line.
We have never had such a horrible experience in this establishment.

We had a great time. The food was great and our servers were fantastic. There were a few little blips, the kitchen didn't get the meat out to our server on time and I think he was embarrassed, but we had plenty to eat while we waited and didn't care at all. They also forgot white rice for two people in our party, but again, we didn't really care because we had plenty to eat. Good experience overall.

Each time we eat at Benihana, the service seems to get a little bit worse. It took nearly 20 minutes just to get water to the table. Drinks were forgotten, and we had to flag down the waitress to get her to even come to our table. Portions were noticeably smaller, especially the onions and zucchini. This is the first time our food has not been as good. It was over-seasoned and over-sauced. Overall, we're just super disappointed that there seems to be no effort in improving or acknowledging poor service.

I have been to this restaurant many times and it is by far my favorite restaurant. For how expensive it is, I only make it there one or two times a year, this last weekend being one of those. This last visit there was by far the worst experience I have ever had there and might be one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in general. The food was not cooked up to the standards it usually is, we had to ask for our one refills that we received all evening and we never even got out salads... Based on this one visit I would never have recommended this to anyone. It was the couple next to me, first time coming there and they said by far that they would never come back. I hope you guys can figure this out because you are a great restaurant.

This was the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. I had a reservation, and also had 2 family members make reservations as well. There were 3 separate birthdays we were celebrating, so we needed 3 SEPERATE TABLES. When we arrived at the location we were told we would not be able to sit all together, which was fine. Once the other parties arrived guy at the front said that he had 2 tables that her could get us in right next to each, which we took. Well being that we had a total of 24 people (8 people per table) that just did not work, so we asked 3 different people if we could get our 3rd table which we reserved. After talking to a manager, we got our 3rd table and proceeded to order our food. After ordering, one of my families table waited 2 hours for a cook, long story short, the cook that was supposed to come to that table was at another table and the party got up to leave. It sucks because at this time it was 1030 at night and there was nowhere else open to eat. I will never attend another benihana. Ever.

Considering we had reservations for 6:30 but didn't get seated until 7, we were told they were running behind but there was an open table the whole time we waited, not sure what the real issue was. Then there happened to be a family of 4 that the 4 year old kept running around and the Mother kept YELLING at her to sit down (this was NOT a special needs child in anyway, just a mother that didn't know how to control her child, thank God the other kids was in a high chair, too bad the Dad was a "rock" on a chair & didn't do anything to help out) anyway, this was NOT our best experience at Benihana. Yes, we will go back as it's our special place to go for birthdays but hopefully next time is better!

We had amazing service...we had a problem with our gift certificate and management still honored it. That was exceptional service and we will be back and will definitely be recommending it to others! Also, our server and chef were both awesome! It was a really good birthday and homecoming celebration. Thank you so much :)

We waited one and a half hours for the cook to show up at our table. Our server did the best he could to keep us updated but the manager never came over and in the end would only give us a 25% discount. This was a birthday dinner celebration and basically took the entire evening that we had slated to do dinner and other things. In the end, we were at this restaurant for over 2-1/2 hours, with a reservation.

Victoria as our server was very nice and gracious. She had everything set up and ready for chef Mariano who was very good in his own right. He did the onion volcano, and flipped shrimp tails into his shirt pocket. Wasn't real talkative but wasn't unfriendly. Overall the good was excellent. The only negative was we had reservations at 4pm and our chef didn't arrive until close to 5pm. And though the floors are a bit slippery overall our part of 4 had a great experience and we would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and acquaintances who enjoy oriental food. Thank you Benihana staff and again kudos to Victoria and to Mariano.

All though I love Benihana's, I was disappointed in the food. I will go back to the Benihana's in Golden Valley and the Mega mall. The shrimp sauce tasted funny. We had to wait for the rest of our table to be served their meals. And then the chef cooked our steaks. By then, the rest of our food was cold. I wanted to leave at that time, but I had hoped things would get better. It didn't. Big disappointment.

Just like all 5 or 6 times I have had a reservation here, we weren't seated until 15 to 20 minutes after my reserved time. The chefs are very friendly and professional. The wait staff is equally friendly but seem to struggle with space and volume of people. Enjoyed the performance and still was able to have conversations with my wife and friends. Sushi is well made and fresh. Seafood is delicious, highly recommend. Drinks are average and seem expensive. Prepare to spend $100 for 2 dinners with drinks. Very crowded, just about elbow to elbow most tables. Feels over-booked. My kid loves the show. Will definitely go again.

Our chef did not follow the regular routine we've seen many times. Therefore our food was cooked improperly and we weren't happy about it. Also our waiter was terrible and never checked in on us. Our birthday photo was also forgotten which was a disappointment.

We left, there was a toddler screaming the whole time in waiting area and while we were seated. I was there to celebrate with my brother however we couldn't talk as the toddler was so loud. We walked out and went somewhere else.
