This used to be such a fun experience with authentic shogun style chefs. Lately, it is exactly the same routine (what are we supposed to return for'?) This last visit we had a hispanic woman .... hardly an authentic experience. The food is expensive and completely average. I quit.

I am a fan of the Benihana experience-quality meat, seafood, poultry and vegetables cooked by a trained chef at your grill table. And what a table: depending on the size of your party, you will be joined by other diners who will share the evening with you. Sometimes I am not a fan of the Benihama experience, I just want...

My boyfriend loves Benihana, and I can't blame him. It's consistently good, and a great place to dine with a large party, or to meet new people at the table during dinner! Although the little tricks that the chefs do have been seen many times before, and I always wonder if there's ever an open position for someone to come... More

For my birthday on Saturday, my family took me to Benihana and what a fun, delicious meal. We have 3 children ages 2 to 11 and they all enjoyed the food and the "Show". We had our own table for 7 and the chef that came out was a lot of fun. Meals there can be pricey, but you are... More

I hadn't been to a Benihana in more than 20 years. Our visit was just as much fun as ever. The knife guy was fun, his show was innovative, we all got plenty to eat. I don't know why we forgot to take our kids there when they were small. It's a good show for children. It's a little hard... More

We enjoyed excellent and personal service and a good selection of food. The meats and seafood were delicious. It was noisier than we remembered from the last time. There were lots of families with children there on this Sunday evening. But it was fun. You are getting dinner and entertainment.
