My husband and I were invited to dine with our son and his family. Our daughter-in-law and grandson were celebrating their birthdays. Our grandson has been in the army for just over a year and he was home on leave as well. Daughter & grandson had coupons to use towards their meal but grandson forgot his at home. The server... More

I like to go to a lot of Japanese steak houses. I went here one evening to see what the hype was for. Restaurant was very clean and I had a reservation so I did not wait. Food is overpriced by a few dollars. There is a $3.50 upcharge price to get fried rice instead of steamed white rice. The... More

The menu was a lot better than what I remembered. Of course we were entertained by the chef who prepared the food... More

When I was a kid, teppan restaurants were really "in," and it was possible to get a great meal and an amazing cooking show (juggling knives, tossing food up in the air, etc) for a relatively moderate price. Benihana is all hype and no follow-through. For starters, our cook was Hispanic rather than Japanese. That in and of itself is... More

We've visited here more than once so I can honestly give a fair opinion. Expect one thing; pricey food. The food is good and we've not had any problems with our chefs. You will, however, have somewhat of a wait to get your food so don't arrive super hungry, give yourself time to become hungry. The issues are more cosmetic;... More

The hibachi here was good considering there aren't many around....east coast has way better. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was generous in portions and the sushi was good. We had the blue ocean sky bowl...was good but lacked in the alcoholic fun that most people look for. A bit pricey but the dinner show was fun and... More

Our waiter was amazing with the food preparation, but he also had us laughing all the way through our meal. Great Fun!
