We went there with a group of friends, even though we had reservation we had to wait about 45 minutes to be seated. The wait time till the chef came to our table was too long but totally worth it. The food was super yummy and whatever we had we liked it. probably will go there again.

It's fun to sit around the chef and see how he does the cooking... Order the combo so you get to taste both land and sea, and eat with Saporo beer! Great for friends or family gathering!

This place is about the spectacle, not the food. So while entertaining, the food quality is pretty good, the drinks are fancy, and the venue is the opposite of intimate. And for a good time (great for birthday celebrations and family dining), where else can you see your dinner thrown in the air and caught deftly on your plate? The... More

We celebrated two birthdays and one anniversary here and the staff made us feel so welcome. The chef does different tricks throughout the meal and each one is better than the last. He makes all type of neat things so it keeps the kids very interested. The food is very reasonable and we took home more leftovers than we ate.... More

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
