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...

Its a bit pricey, and during dinner the staff with rush you in and out, so they can prepare for the next show. If you can, come to Beihanas for LUNCH. Yes, Lunch! The menu is cheaper (my steak and...

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.

We went to this restaurant for lunch on a weekend and got their lunch special. Everything was great; good waitress, atmosphere and we were seated right away without having to wait to be seated. Definitely we will come back again.

Got the sashimi plate and the fish was not fresh. The tuna definitely tasted like its been sitting outside for awhile.

We went there for my daughters 10th birthday and had a fun time. I had the filet with scallops--delish, my son had the steak which was a bit chewy. Cocktails were made perfectly.
