Great service and a very tasty dinner

We'll skip the oops (a piece of plastic wrap in my salad) and go with the great service and tasty food.

Probably the most famous of the Japanese teppan-style dining chains. Benihana has been around for a long time with locations all over. Good place for a fun date, company function, family outing, etc. have fun watching the chef prepare your meal, but realize that there are better places for a delicious meal.

Very pricey, but food is good and makes a nice 'celebration' destination - dinner and a show! Good for all but the smallest children, reservations a must for big parties or weekend nights. Full bar while you wait.

We had Lunch on a Saturday at the table Grill. The food was great. The show was not as spectacular as previous dinner experiences were, but the cost was very reasonable. I highly recommend this place for LUNCH.

My husband took me here for our anniversary dinner. The soup, was the best sort of light, "oniony" "mushroomy" and delicate flavored soup I had ever eaten. That alone made the dinner special. The food was delicious and the atmosphere awesome. I did notice that some tables (you sit with others around the table) had chefs that were more skilled... More
