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.

Tonight's experience was off. We had a 6:00 reservation and it was 7:00 before our chef arrived to begin preparing our food. In the 50+ minutes of waiting, we got our drinks and soup, but nothing else. I had to approach the manager to get an explanation.
When our waiter arrived he was good but kept making what i consider to be culturally insensitive jokes. As he was cooking the chicken breast, he remarked that he was making "Japanese chicken" and started meowing. He made that comment several times throughout the night.
Overall, it was my worst experience at Benihana's!

The service was not to par.
We all assumed that they were short staffed, since it is typically decent.
Dishes were not cleared from our table before more food was delivered. Straw wrappers and other misc garbage were never picked up. We had to go and find forks for the table, we could not find the server and she did not leave any. Drink refills were never offered. The list goes on.....
Like always - the bathrooms were not clean.

Our only problem was with the chef. My husband asked for his steak medium rare with no salt. He was served a well done steak with added salt. He could not eat it.
We were given a few coupons.
This was clearly a mistake by the chef.

We ended a special celebration day for my daughter's 12th birthday by taking six twelve year old girls, two adults, and my teenage son to this Benihana for dinner. The chef could have been outstanding if he only tried to cater to the group of tweeny girls, but he didn't exert any effort to do so. When he inadvertently put the wrong food on my wife's plate (which she had already eaten from), he proceeded to scrape it onto the other girls' plates! Other than that, the food was good. However, both of the kitchen's rice cookers were having trouble. That meant we didn't get our rice until the very end of the meal. The restaurant did comp our rice because of this, but that did little to rectify the overall feeling of being "let down". Overall, I'd say they really need to step up their efforts to provide an outstanding experience in order to earn one's patronage.

I was impressed with a young lady at the check in desk. I was late getting to the restaurant and missed my reservation. She was able to still get us in during the rush with no problem. I think she went out of her way to accommodate me even though it was my fault I was late.
