We had a wonderful time. Renny was our tableside chef, He was as entertaining as he was great. He entertained our entire table, and didn't leave anyone out. The food was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd recommend Benihana's to anyone.

It was wayyyyyyy too much smoke. Chef used waaaaaayyyyy too much oil and it burned off in my face. Burned my nose and chest. Let the table several times. Had to forgo the final course because I couldn't breathe. Manager said they'd make it right and credited me 50% and then sat around chatting about how the vena don't always work right. I think he thought I was just agree a credit. NO. I was trying to tell him that my son (my date) and I both have asthma and because of this issue I'm afraid to come back. His flippant explanation only solidified my resolve. I'm giving my gift card to a friend.

We eat here a few times per year. Like the food and presentation. The chef's routine is the same as it has been for years. Still fun. Our chef this night did an exceptional job with both his routine and cooking the food. Everything was spot on. Even the sushi was better than usual. Looking forward to next visit.

The place is always nice but this visit the service was very slow and instead of warm and welcoming, as usual, seemed to be more that we were an after thought of group.
All in all the restaurant is usually good and the service is typically great. This just appeared to be an off night for them.

Went for Christmas Lunch today with a friend and had a wonderful time!! We both had steak and lobster and it was cooked perfectly! Our chef, Thang, was amazing and so entertaining! Diego made sure we had everything we needed in the most fluid and engaging way possible. Could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you everyone for making our day so great!

It was all good until the wait staff started to wash the table etc while I was still there waiting for my final bill. It really was bad, they could have waited a few more minutes, other tables we empty .... that left a really bad taste in my mouth.

This was one of the worst experiences I have had in a restaurant, lately. We were greeted by rude staff (the shift manager) who really didn't care about whether we dined there or not. The wait staff were impolite and service in general was lacking. We were celebrating a birthday and had the birthday girl not wanted to dine there, we would have walked out.
The food was disappointing! The food quality has degraded significantly. The shrimp used on the hibachi table was not even deveined.
This was my last time dining at this Benihana or any other Benihana.

Food was good although the chicken was not cooked long enough. It was almost raw. Too many kids plus the banging and clanging of chef utinsels made it very noisy. The entertainment was good and our waitress was really great. My main problem was the price. Much too high for what is provided. The dining area had the look and feel of a plain concrete basement. But we had fun anyway.
Wonderful dining experience. My wife and ...
Wonderful dining experience. My wife and I wanted to try something new as we were celebrating our 2 month wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in until we left top notch service. We went during dinner time so of course there was a wait in which we did not have to wait long. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we definitely will be back!!

0 for 2 at this location. Terrible service, inexperienced cooks on the grill, way too many people crammed in, and they do their best to rush you through your meal and out the door. We won't be back to this location. I suggest looking elsewhere in Shops of Legacy or visiting the Dallas location which is far better in all regards.

Anyone that knows Benihana, knows they can put on a show. In the evenings the try harder for the show, but they will do a good job any time. lots of choices, so if fish is not your thing, they have chicken and steak as well.
Always lots of fun and you can take nearly any group and have a good time.

I was happy with the chef and the people we were seated amongst. Most of the staff were friendly and the one who was not we made the managers aware. There were no problems afterwards. The food was great, but our reservation was for 8pm and when we arrived we were told there were no tables. After about 30 minutes we were seated.

I love Benihana's, but Monday night was subpar. Our waitress was slow and did not get in a hurry for anything until it was time for the checks. The one positive for her was that my tea glass was never empty. However others that had other types of drinks did have empty glasses for a while before they were asked if they would like another. Our chef was not really into providing the "show". I am not sure if Benihana was under staffed Monday nigh or what. But I do know that our chef had just came off another table straight to ours. I have never seen this before.

Service staff was very friendly and professional. Chef seemed new as it took quite awhile for the food to be cooked. Food was disappointing this time - steaks were not cooked to proper temperature and was quite chewy, not fresh tasting.
