We came for a Saturday night dinner - the kids love Benihana in the city and this was our first time out to this particular location. Tracy made our night! He was funny, a great cook and just incredibly entertaining. He brought the table together (you have to share a table if your party is less than 8) and had... More

We went there as a party of 7 as we had another family come with us & I can honestly say everyone had a great time! We had 3 pre teen with us & they spent a great deal of time amazed at the fast hands, chopping, throwing, spearing, & thoroughly entertaining us. The food was amazing.....bursting with flavor &...

We go to Benihana several times a year and enjoy it every time. This time we purchased gift cards because of the discount inherent in the pricing ($110 for $100) and in anticipation of using them in Waikiki in March. From the promotional material it was clear that the $10 "bonus" card would be restricted to Continental US locations but... More

Got lunch today for New Year. We ordered Lunch Boat Beef Julienne and Salmon. We sat together with 3 couples in the table. The salad came and my salad looks like they don't have enough vegetables to put on,..slightly thin , not much veggies..sad looking,...hahaha. The dressing is not that tasty...too watery...first we thought Thousands Island from the orange color... More

The restaurant is the classic Japanese Teppanyaki Style Cuisine (Hibachi Steak, Chicken and Shrimp, as well as sushi and sashimi.) I had a free meal there for my 70th Birthday and it was an excellent experience. The chef prepares your food to your desired taste before you and your fellow guests with a flair of both fun & expertise. My... More

In town for son's 24th birthday and to meet up with family. Food was outstanding and if you go to Benihana it is best to have reservation. Another thing very important is go with a group of people especially people that are fun. We had the best chef and he kept us very entertained. Lot's of food and we were... More

I am very glad my first (and most likely, only) time eating at this restaurant was with a $30 birthday coupon. Please note, I sat at the bar counter since I was by myself and wanted to watch game 7 of the NBA finals. Its possible the food is served hot as it should be if it is prepared at... More

It took to long to be seated and have our order taken even with a reservation (30 minutes). I counted 8 employees standing around watching at one point. I was concerned when our chef came up and told us his name was Jose but surprised me with a decent show. The food was very bland. The soup was the best... More
