I had a similar opinion to other guests. The dining is a little pricey yes, however it is to be expected for the performance the Chef puts on. So, likewise I did enjoy my dinner, but at the same time it could be found at another restaurant for less $$. The only item wasn't very tasty was the salad; the... More

We went for my spouses birthday and the cook dropped his utensils on my husband during the prep show. There was no apology by anyone. Thankfully he was not injured. Then to top it all off they added at 20% tip to our party of two, so insult was added. We will not be returning as they do not seem... More

Went to Benihana in Concord for my granddaughter's 16th birthday with the whole family. We had a complete two cooking stations together to seat everyone. The food was great, the show was great and everyone had a great time. It was a real showstopper!

We spend special times and birthdays at Benihana. My grandson absolutely loves the food being prepared on the grill. Wonderful food and family entertainment. What more could you ask ?

I hate the wait, but it's worth it. That's the biggest negative. Even when you have reservations, you have to wait. It's the nature of the tables. You can get the same food in the restaurant portion without the "show" but that's half the fun. The food is excellent. I had the shrimp and steak. It's great that they've added... More

Fresh and tasty plated fast food. Fast Food? Yes. You and your party are on a clock. What do you do when the chef takes away your dirty plates and starts cleaning the grill? You leave.Don't even think of ordering another round of drinks and socializing for a while.

I heard a lot about the great food and the environment. It was my first visit, service was terrible, the place was filthy, which really surprised me because we went on a week day one hour after they opened. The food was ok, but was expensive. I will not return. They should be ashamed to open the doors when the... More

Very entertaining for families with children...keeps the kids entertained while your food is being cooked in front of you. This place is always busy for dinner so be sure to make reservations ahead of time. The food is very consistent. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. This has been a to go place for the last... More
