Benihana - Scottsdale Ratings and Reviews

I called ahead of time to let the restaurant know that two car seat slings were needed in addition to the number of guests had reserved seats for, and as soon as we got there, alerted the host of a last minute addition. We were still crammed for space. The cook, Caleb, was disorganized and did not season the vegetables whatsoever. He did not start cooking the steak until after all chicken was served, and I had to ask for the onions and mushrooms to be served as part of the appetizer and he forgot that mushrooms were also supposed to be served with the chicken. I also found the cook to be friendly in general, but when he spoke in a mock Japanese accent, it was a little culturally insensitive (he is from South Carolina). Finally, while a few employees offered to sing Happy Birthday to me, nobody offered to take pictures or told the guests about The Chef's Table. In all, I don't think I'll be going to this location again in the future and will stick with the Chandler location.

It was great to celebrate my Birthday with my daughter BUT I didn't get my birthday SONG or my Birthday PICTURE with my daughter!! Nor did I get a desert. WOW!! Not a very good experience when I've had better, years before at the Chandler location!

Never have I had a bad experience at benihana , but I guess there is a first for everything . Really bad service to the point that the manager gave us the meal for free but never said sorry or helped make our dinner more enjoyable . Sorry to say that benihana is a no go in my book now 😯

the service was not what it should of been. our reservations were for 7pm we had to wait to be seated, then when we were at the table had to wait another 15 min. I had the pork & yuzu very very disappointed (will not order it again). I asked the busser to have it cooked med. was cooked very done and pork was dry. my friend had seafood diablo and that was good.

We have been dining at Benihana for well over forty years, it is my wife's favorite restaurant. Their Scottsdale location has a hit or miss reputation for us, but recently they have really improved. The service on this visit wasn't perfect, but close. the food was great

My friends and I had a reservation for 8:30. It took 20 minutes to be greeted at our table. We didn't start eating until around 10. The chef that cooked at our table was terrible and kept dropping things. The waitress stopped by every 30 minutes or so. I expect much better service for the amount of money we spent!!!

Benihana is always a fun time! Huge amounts of food for the money. The Teppanyaki is always a fun experience - with a big group - or with kids. This time we were disappointed in our Teppanyaki chef - not as fun and entertaining as we have had in the past - especially with kids at the table - it was a real let down. But, we have had great experiences in the past, so we will be back. Food was great!

Place was pretty great. We made reservations ahead of time, and our table was ready right when they said it would be. Bar staff were friendly and helpful. Dinner was amazing, the cook was decent with flair but the food he made was absolutely perfect. I went big and had the Hibachi Supreme, and it was definitely worth it. Wait staff were friendly and frequently came back to check on everything or give us refills. Overall, very good experience. Thanks!

It was a fun birthday dinner. The hostess sat two other birthday patrons at our table and they were very nice. The chef was very entertaining and fun to watch. The chicken fried rice was excellent and happy that our server recommended it! I had the salmon and it was alright, nothing great, but not bad either. Just be prepared to spend around 90 minutes for dinner.

Food and service were good. Had a problem with the Hood Fan over the grill, it was blowing the smoke in my face all during the meal. I was told there was nothing that could be done. I questioned whether the fan was set on High and was told it was working.

Overall a very good experience deserving of four stars. Only complaint is the decor, design is a little below what you would normally see. Service was really, really good. Five stars for that, and the food was excellent. Will be back.

We went to Benihana's for my birthday. Our group consisted of our friends (married couple), my husband, and myself. We sat at a table with another married couple and their 6-year old child. I had a marvelous time. The chef was a wonderful showman and cook, the service was outstanding, the atmosphere was relaxing, and I was treated royally! The meal was incredible! SO GOOD! I informed the chef about my allergy to shellfish, so he prepared the shellfish last. I got an ice cream sundae for dessert, and to my surprise, the servers sang happy birthday in both English and Japanese! It was awesome!!! Then, our server took a photo of our group, printed two copies and gave one to us and one to our friends! I couldn't have had a better experience! It was my first time at Benihana's and it will certainly NOT be my last!!!

Love that some places and traditions stay true over the years. All time favorite restaurant when I was a kid, we celebrated my daughters 7th birthday and I'm excited to make Benihana a family tradition of our own.

Husband and I went to celebrate an anniversary. The service was great and the chef preparing food at the table was great. The seafood we each had (scallops and collasal shrimp) were tasty. The steak (filet mignon and new york strip) not so much. Although cooked correctly, they were both bland and the strip was chewy. There was no salt and pepper at the table nor soy sauce. I felt bad that I had to keep asking the chef to borrow his bottle of sauce. Overall for the entertainment value, it was okay. Quite a distance for us so we won't be going back anytime soon.
