Benihana was "off its game" during our visit.
I am not always comfortable with sitting with people we don't know. This time was more so as one person had an allergy. Benihana cooks allergy free meals in the kitchen. The served lost the order so the person ended up with a to go bag after watching all of us eat.
The ventilation was apparently not working as the fried smell was overwhelming.
Food was ok. We did not receive our salad or a choice to not have soup.
Something's definitely wrong.

We were here for my daughters birthday cause Benihana is her favorite. The chef and the food was amazing, but the service was absolutely horrible. We waited 20 minutes before our server came, then another 40 minutes for our drinks. We had food from our cook on our plates and still no drinks. We were into the main course of the meal before we could find our server to ask for forks. Our soup and salad came out after our appetizers were cooked. We cleared our own dishes so we could make room at the table. It was supposed to be a great night for my daughter, but it was very disappointing.

Dinner service timing seemed to be off. Chef was running behind but apologized. Had to run back to kitchen for something he forgot too. Long waits between service. Appetizer came after soup and salad. Our white rice came way after the the shrimp and veggies were served. The food was excellent but others dining at the table also noted the service seemed to take longer than usual.

The food was delicious and the chef was very talented and engaged. My biggest complaint is that the service was slow. Although I had reservations, it was still an hour and a half wait before the chef started preparing our meal - and it was on a weekday, not a weekend.

Had to increase my reservation number of guests and couldn't do it through open table so called the store. Manager was incredibly rude for no reason. Once at the restaurant it took 40 minutes for our table to receive any form of food. Servers didn't provide chefs with rice, soup was cold and server stated wait time was typical. I've been here many times, that is definitely not typical. Saw manager sternly talking to employees right in the open, once again extremely unprofessional manager. I don't normally complain and wouldn't had it not been for unprofessilnalism on two occasions exhibited by the manager. I can only only guess all the employees are walking on eggshells around him. I no longer will recommend or dine at this location.

We were celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. It was a vey fun evening and the food was delicious. It was fun watching the chef and he was very nice, friendly and funny! We took our adult children and their spouses....no children. I wouldn't recommend bringing children younger than 7 or 8 years old. We had a nice evening!

Seated 20 minutes after our reservation time, took about 30 minutes to get our
beverage from bar, people who ordered pop and water received their drinks about
10 minutes later. Our table was tight since they set it for 9 people (our reservation was
for 3). The whole dining experience was almost 3 hours which was totally unacceptable.

Nope. We had a reservation at 8:00pm and didn't get a cheat till 9:20 after two tables that were sat after us (a good thirty minutes after a us) revived their food and service first. No explianation from management what was going on and we were pretty much the last table on that side to leave when seated before other tables, ordered right away. Sad because it was a special night out for my husband and I and he works early we didn't expect such SLOW unfair service.

The chef, Jorge, had almost no interaction with us. Didn't even introduce himself or do the usual fun things that entertain, other than tossing the utensils around a bit in the beginning. It seemed like he would rather be anywhere but with us. I just had to think he was just having a bad day. The food was good but we are paying for the entertainment too.

Our chef was not interactive. Although he performed much of the usual tricks, he hardly spoke to the table. After the food was served, he cleaned the grill and left without his final performance. Food was fantastic as usual but disappointed that we were not entertained, as expected.

The food and chef were great, the waiting and bus service was good, but we were disappointed when my wife was in the bathroom when they brought her candle and sang Happy Birthday. It was just the waitress and bus person so I'm not sure why they couldn't just have waited until she was at the table, silly to sing to an empty chair and that was a disappointment because birthdays are the main reason we go to Benihanas. The only other minor issue was having 9 people at the table we felt crowded. I can see 8 fitting well, but with 9 I had to keep my arms in so I wasn't bumping elbows with the couple sitting next to us.

We were seated close to our reservation time, but after 3 requests we still didn't have our drinks 50 minutes into it. Two and a half hours later we finally just left without our ice cream and my husband still had to stay behind for the bill. I could go on forever, but it was such a swing and a miss. The 50% off the bill was the right thing to do, but still didn't take away from what a horrible evening it was to celebrate an 8 year old b-day.

We had a reservation for a group of 10, were seated mostly right away. Took 15+ mins before a server took the drink order, another 15-20 for drinks to come. An hour and 15 later, still no chef but 2 tables that came after us had one. Made an inquiry, was told a manager would come to the table. 15 mins later, no manager, made another inquiry. Almost 2 hours after we had gotten there, we finally had a chef. The food was good. Service was awful.
In addition: there were 4 dirty plates on our table, grease dripped from the exhaust on to one of our plates just before the food was served, the chef had to ask 3x to have it replaced.

The food was very good and the staff was attentive they seemed to be short of entree cooks so there was a long delay between the courses. This delay was hardest on our three year old grandson. Our server was good and made sure our drinks with refilled during the delay between courses but there was no explanation of the delay and it was very noticeable .

Very dissapointing. We were seated way in a back corner. It felt very very dingy and grimy.
Someone forgot to turn the burner on and we had to wait and extra long time before they were able to start preparing our food.
We waited quite a long time to get ice water .
When I stated I wanted to purchase salad dressing (as we were eating our salad) the server stated she would find out if I could, I never got a answer an answer until we were leaving.
The family we shared the table with got their check right away while we waited another 15 minutes to get ours.
My steak had an odd taste but my husband are it anyways.
We have dined at Benihanas for years and loved it.
This time it was way beyond disappointing.

We have enjoyed Benihana in Maple Grove in the past, but the restaurant has deteriorated. Service was extremely slow with dinner taking 2 hours. Food portions have also gotten smaller and even though we were celebrating my son's birthday, no picture was offered or taken. Overall, disappointing.

dirty plates were left on table and when you have 7 people that becomes very crowded. Didn't offer picture had to ask and then she forgot she gave it to us. steak was overcooked for everyone. the rest of food was good. Took a long time to get checks and then to for them to come back and get our payments.
Took 30 minutes to get our drinks. Then ...
Took 30 minutes to get our drinks. Then took another 30 minutes for chef to come and he cooked fast ate for 20 minutes. Lastly waited 15minutes for check. Seemed like slow service. Server messed up orders The cook was great and made things smooth.
