The food and overall experience was good. Our chef was great. However the service is extremely slow. We had reservations for 7:00 (arrived early) and didn't get seated until 7:30. After we were seated it took a very long time for our server to come to our table. He took our drink order and was gone forever until he came back with our drinks. It ended up being almost a two and a half hour experience. They need to fix the slow service in order for the experience to be worth the high prices.

We’ve been to Benihana on numerous occasions and had a very good experience, but this was not one of those times. We had a reservation (an early 5:30 one at that so the restaurant was not yet busy), yet waited 1/2 hour to be seated. Once seated, it was 45 more minutes before our chef joined the table. The chef didn’t do all the parts of the “cooking show” that you typically see at Benihana, and seemed more intent on just getting the food cooked and getting out than the showmanship aspect of it. Additionally, he heavily doused the chicken fried rice in soy sauce, yet put no soy sauce on the vegetables. They forgot the white rice for my two children, and when I requested it, they brought out one single bowl for them to share. I’ve never had a bad experience at Benihana before, but if this had been my first time, I wouldn’t go back.

Benihana is my favorite treat, the MoA & St Louis Park locations are great but time and time again I am disappointed with the Maple Grove location. Slow service, slow everything. I've talked to other Benihana fans and they have the same review

It was a great experience, we love the food however the wait time was very long, I have 2 kids and we were there for an hour before we got our food. Felt a little rush once we go our food...

Our chef Matt was great and the food was maybe the best I have had here in a while. It was a great lunch.

First of all, We love Benihana’s. Unfortunately our past visit on February 16, 2018 was extremely unpleasant. Our server was nice and tried to make the situation better but he couldn’t. We were made to sit under an open vent even when the air outside was -3 degrees. Our chef was mediocre at best - very messy and our food was flying everywhere. The cold air caused our feed to be cold before we could eat it and we had to spend our entire dinner with coats on. Very disappointed. I won’t be back.

Had fun. The cool didn't do a lot though. Couple of kids at our table not ours loved the fire, but that's all he did. Could've done more with the eggs etc...

When we arrived at about 7:58 for our 8:00 reservation, we still had wait for other parties to arrive which could take a while. Our hibachi table was right by the door which was uncomfortably freezing. We did end up switching to another table inside the restaurant which was better but we still felt a cold draft. Food was good. I ordered the filet mignon with chicken and my gf had the spicy NY strip. Food arrived at 930PM. Overall experience was good, the food was good however the coldness inside the restaurant lowered the overall value.

Worst experience that I have ever had at this spot. Been here tons of time. 2 hours long. Another table the old chef was throwing and dropping food everywhere on floor. Girlfriend sat on end and food from old chef was hitting her. Didnt understand beer at bar 3.25 beer in restaraunt 5.50 then at 8pm beer in bar $7.90 for a Bud Light. Not impressed. 3 different prices for beer. Food was alright. Our chef was great. It lasted 2 hours never before has it taken that long. Must not if had too many reservations. I dont know. Everytime we have gone here it has been getting worst!!! Might be our last time going. Not a fan anymore. VERY DISAPPONTED!!! We loved this place!!!!
