Whilst the chefs do put on a decent show cooking the food, it is not much better than other Japanese restaurants. I guess you do pay more for the cost but his location drops the ball. The service and quality of the chef's performances cooking have declined over the last couple of years. Specifically with the managerial changes, I've noticed... More

We got there about 20 minutes before our reservations and were welcomed by the entire staff. That was very nice. The front staff asked about our reservation and told... More

I'd been to this Benihana location before, about 25 years ago. Recently, my girlfriend, sister, niece, and I ate lunch here to celebrate my sister's birthday. We arrived before the lunch crowd hit, so the place was fairly empty. I understood that for lunch we'd get smaller portions, and not everything you'd get during dinner would be included, but there...

If you like your food prepared at your table, this is the place. The soup arrives first, and then dishes are served as they are cooked, yes, at your table. If you are just a couple, expect to sit with strangers, but the experience, and the food, are worth it. Do sign up for their emails and add your birth... More

This is right behind the Double Tree and an easy walk. Inside it was styled the same as the double tree, 1979 looks to be the them. We got there at 9:55 and were not told they close at 10pm. Once seated they rushed us through the meal so they could clean up and get out. Food was average. I... More

I would definitely recommend. I sat at the bar and ordered sushi and hibachi. The food was good, order came out quick, and staff was very friendly. Great stop on a business trip and would return.
