Huge fan, but the food was just so so. If you go in a group, dont expect conversation, as it is way too loud. The prices are ridiculously high in my opionion.

My kids love that the food is cooked on the table right in front of them along with a "show" and a bit of comedy. We had some dietary limitations that required special attention, and we were very pleased that we only had to ask once, and the chef very carefully kept the special orders separate from the others.

I've always been intrigued by this restaurant and have heard stories and seen pictures and thought it would be neat to try. Finally, Me Boy decided that he'd like to eat there to celebrate it 22nd birthday so we gathered the clan and off we went. We made reservations on Open Table (I love this app) arrived 15 minutes early,... More

Maybe it is just not for me. Way to loud to even talk with your group about the chef's show. Way to smokey to breathe. The food is average at best. They should consider marinating the meat to give it some flavor, but that might give more smoke. Yea the chef's are kind of fun to watch but they all... More

I am a fan of Benihana but not this one. It was just terrible across the board. Check in was handled badly. They herded up three separate groups. it was like watching the person herd cats. We were ready. Another party was ready. but we were left at the mercy of the last party of three. God forbid, She brought... More

Benihana is always great. Some may say it's pricey but I say it's well worth the money for the amount of food you get, the quality and taste of the food, and the entertainment you receive. They usually have a Chef's Special with 2 entrees for $45 which is a great deal. It's a great date restaurant and also great... More

The show was good, the kids enjoyed it, but the tables weren't big enough for entire family to sit together. The filet mignon stir fry tasted ok and the fried rice was really good, but the sushi boat was eh! Don't think I would return unless the fam REALLY wanted to go.

My husband & I took the kids on a family date night to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The service in the bar was good. The specialty drinks have very little alcohol. The sushi was good. Once we sat for hibachi, we were very disappointed. Our chef was "not very entertaining" and sped thru the whole dinner. The portions were okay,... More

We took our daughter there for her birthday lunch and we were not let down. Great food. Takes just over an hour to get seated and served.
