Benihana - Maple Grove Ratings and Reviews
Terrible service, we waited over an hour ...
Terrible service, we waited over an hour at our table for the teppenyaki chef to arrive. The waiter was slow and inattentive. Stopped checking in on us after 30-40 minutes of wait time. When we finally asked him to get the manager he offered us some free white rice for the wait. The shift manager came by and was indifferent and snarky. This location has had problems for some time and this will be our last visit.

I have been there five times now, I really enjoy the restaurant and the food. The only problem I had was, the humility was so hi and all the heat from the grills made the floors wet. They were a little slippery but not to bad, when we came in. Then someone was thoroughgoing salt on the floor, that is very small rocks, it got so so slippery. My friend feel. salt is for ice not water.

The service was so slow. It took 15 minutes just for our dinks. The chef did make delicious food but service was just bad. The way the restaurant is set up is also very open so four tables of people are all just sitting together. I would not go back to this location.

We had a 730 reservation, waited forever to get seated. Finally they set us at a table with two other couples and we waited two hours before our chef even showed up. They spaced out our salad and soup in that two hours to keep us occupied. It didn't help. The manager did come and apologize. We didn't even get our meat until 10 PM. I understand if they were shortstaffed or extra busy but they could have set that expectation with us instead of leading us on to keep believing our chef was coming. Terrible experience And ruined a birthday evening! I can't imagine ever going back and waiting like that again!

I love Benihana's food. I go there all the time but only for the food. The service there has been lacking for several months unfortunately. Before our server was always on her phone and never filled drinks and forgot to bring out our soups and salads. This time our server was amazing but we had to wait an hour before our chef came to our table and when he did come out, granted he was new, he was very unprofessional. He was more concerned about listening and commenting on our side conversation than was making the food. Which he made one at a time. This is not going to stop me from going back, I know there are great chefs and servers there. Just disappointed that the last few times we've been there, the staff hasn't been up to par.

Always love the Benihana experience. This chef was one of the best we have had. Did more tricks than the norm (rice bowl throw). Very nice wait staff and great food! Would highly recommend this Benihana for any occasion.

Excellent food, pretty good service. The grill chef, Kai, was the best we have ever had. He was fabulous! Our grandson (age 14) requested this place for his birthday, and he was not disappointed. We had an overall very good experience, and will be back for future birthday celebrations.

Floors were very slippery due to "moisture/humidity" rather than put up signs and take your chances with patrons falling...how about putting down something to dry up the floors? I also am sorry to say your portions are getting visibly smaller, even the zucchini which is pretty inexpensive. This time we were also quite rushed at the finish of our meal even though there were several open tables.

We have been coming for many years now. It has always been excellent and entertaining. Noticed yhid timd went much quicker amd somr of the "show" was gone. Also cook used much less butter, msde me feel about healthly meal :)

The time it takes to dine varies so much. Sometimes we get in at our reservation times-sometimes not like this visit was 12 minutes post reservation time to be seated. Then we were there for 40 minutes post reservation time before there was a chef present. You can't have anything planned afterwards because sometimes it's an hour and sometimes it's 90 minutes. The large booth we were in had pretty bad old cushions and it wasn't comfortable.

We love that we can sit in a group at a round table with family. It makes it so much easier to converse with each other. The food . . . well, just excellent. We were there for my husbands birthday recently, but we go there just for dinner as well. We also appreciate that we can do everything on line. :)

I enjoyed myself. I bought my son there for his 20th birthday. He was in a car accident the week before and I just wanted to spend time with him all by myself. We enjoyed ourselves. The food was great. The server was so nice. We really had a good time.

Dining experience was great. Just the right size crowd for a weekday. The cost of adding chicken to your meal was a bit much! For $8.00 I could feed a small country! not sure if that was really the cost or if the waitress was just being lazy! Nonetheless I declined! As it turns out I didn't need it anyway the meal was ok without it. A lil too much butter tho... I'm told that's what makes it taste soo good! Overall a great experience!
