Try the sushi!

After a weekend of big eating, we were in the mood for something light. The sushi was truly delicious! We ordered the chicken dish for the kids and scarfed up their leftovers too. The hibachi vegetables and sauces are especially delicious.

I have been to this restaurant on several occasions to a Birthday with a few friends to a graduation celebration and then just a dinner date. I love the Shrimp and the way everything is prepared on the Hibachi grills. I like how the Chefs entertain and I love the way the restaurant is set up.

I like going to Benihana's and this experience was no different. They give you large quantities of tasty food, and the chef entertains you as he prepares it in front of you. The person who took our order was a cute little Asian lady, extroverted and a little goofy, which added to the entertainment factor.

We visit hibachi grills frequently. This one has the best grilled veggies bar none. They are cooked just right and have perfect seasoning. The scallops are yummy. The staff is welcoming and most helpful. The table chefs are so creative and really make sure the meal is cooked to perfection. We visit here on most trips to the City.

We always celebrate our family birthdays at Benihana. The food is always great! They give you a free desert and take your picture. It's a lot of fun.

First off, you NEED to make a reservation. Even if it is made the same day you go, make a reservation. It will save you the hour wait time that you would have to wait WITHOUT making a reservation.

This is the best restaurant I have visited so far. If you like Japanese food with a flair this is the place you nee to try. The service, show of cooking the food, and the food itself were outstanding. We had the filet and it was tender enough to pull apart with your fingers. Thank you Nancy and Doc for... More

This place would be getting -10 stars if I could rate them that. We had to wait 60+ minutes for a table and service. I left my credit card and didn't realize it until the next afternoon. When I called to see if they had it I was told no. My friend called and they told her yes they did... More
