Had reservations still had to wait when we finally got seated we were the last ones to be seated at the table still trying to figure that out sat at a table with 5 other people who ordered and shared 2 meals but the chef divided everything at the table equally I was not happy and it was my son's birthday

Everything was great. The only thing that irritated me was having to wait for the other half of our table to show up. My kids were very hungry, and we had to wait an extra 25-30 minutes, while the couple was waiting for their parents to find the restaurant.

My wife and I brought our seven year old twins here for ther Birthday and we were very disappointed. The boys favorite restraint is Osaka and I thought we would try Benihana this time instead actually thinking that it was a little more upscale. When we sat down to eat we were greated with dirt plates, a dirty grill with large chunks of food on the grill and sticky menus with food and who knows what was spilled in them. My wife and I both had to ask for new menus and go to the bathroom and wash our hands again prior to eating. The service and the food were decent.

Did not care for the booth type table that we had!! Really difficult to get in and out of, disturbing others as well .
The seat cushions were really uncomfortable....everyone at table remarked about that. The bench was quite dirty besides....

This place is overrated! I personally had a terrible experience at this location. We were 20 minutes late for our appointment and understandable we knew we would have to wait about maybe 30 minutes to be seater; however it took over 1:30 minutes and we never got called to be seated. In addition we were waiting while people who walked in and made reservations on the spot were seated before us. I wouldn't even recommend my dog for a treat to this location.

The hibachi-style cooking and serving is a treat. We had toddlers and they delighted in the chef's onion volcano trick as well as his juggling of utensils. We had to watch the toddlers to make sure they stayed clear of the hot cooking surface, but that was doable. It was fun and the food was very good. We had plenty of leftovers.

Despite having a reservation they could not seat us til another hour or so and so we ate at t he express lunch. They brought out the food which was cold BEFORE they brought out the salad. Told the manager. They brought out the sauces and the salads. Then they brought out the food a second time. This time it was overly salted and the rice was terriblemuch better taste and service at Golden Valley. Was very disappointed.

My girlfriend and I love this restaurant but t this visit is one of the worst visits we have ever had. I chicken had a funny texture, I don't think it was cooked long enough. We had to ask the waitress to fill out water glasses two different times. The chef didn't really put on a show for us, he didn't get us involved much at all. We had egg shells in the rice. This won't stop us from coming back but this was not a good experience for my bday celebration.

I am vegetarian and I believe you guys had a miso soup (vegetable broth) but when I ordered my meal this last time, they said they only had soup with beef stock. So I felt like I didn't get to eat everything that was included with the entree. And its not cheap! You should get both because more and more people are not eating animal products. It would be nice! Just saying.

we had a 4:30 reservation and we didn't leave until 7:00. Our sushi we wanted before the meal took an hour to get and we got at dinner. Drinks took 20 minutes to get. Our service was HORRIBLE!!!! There were several things missing from our when the food cart was brought out, so that took longer! We wont come back!!!

Surprisingly we had a poor experience at Benihana, as well as the rest of the people at our table, the chef was quiet the entire time, no show like normal and our food wasn't cooked as well, no happy birthday song, no picture taken, prices on menu differed from actual prices, beer listed on menu wasn't available, and we asked for two items to take home and they forgot them, overall weird experience.

Our "chef" could hardly crack eggs. He hardly made any effort to entertain our group at all. Extremely disappointing as this was a birthday outing. Speaking of that-front desk hosts-incredibly rude about having the 6 members of our group seated so when I arrived with my boyfriend/birthday-guest of honor to surprise him they were reluctantly seated. It was a Sunday. I'm sad about our chef-did you give us a training chef because we were teenagers? Our bill was still expensive! We are still viable customers who would like to return. You weaken my argument against my friends who prefer Osaka.

The restaurant was very cold. Initially, they sat us by a side door with cold air blowing in. We asked to move. Moving did not prove to be much better. The entire restaurant was just freezing! I ate with a coat on and one on my legs. Every one at the table had their coats on throughout dinner and we were still cold. Not the ideal fine dinning experience...
