Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

We thought this would be fun for the kids and it was. Our chef was very entertaining and the food was excellent. It was very expensive and next time I think we need to get one of those birthday coupons. Not a place we would frequent but a fun experience.

I managed to get a cook that was not fully groomed for the job. He messed up our order, when we offered to pay for the extra fried rice he refused to give it to us. Two of my guest did not want mushrooms so he refused to allow the table to have the additional serving. Though I hesitated, I... More

(if you sign up for "chef's table" online they give you $30 off and ice cream) It was amazing, I had their scallops and filet minion hibachi and it was phenomenal!!!! I am picky about places like this and this was... More

Service was fabulous. Children dressed up and enjoyed wearing the paper chef hats. The length of time spent in the restaurant was perfect from beginning to end, w/o the children getting bored! We will defiantly do it again~

Step into this time machine of a restaurant and you'll be transported to 1977! Friendly '70's staff and atmosphere. Teriyaki chicken and Hibachi chicken dinners were average in quality as was the fried rice ($3.00 surcharge). Soup was very good. Salad was not edible. The house dressing was beyond bitter. I have no idea how anyone could have eaten it... More

Very friendly atmosphere. Had a minimal wait when we arrived. Table was clean and set prior to us sitting. Cook was very accommodating and asked twice how we wanted meat prepared. This was a well oiled machine.

Went there with 5 other people! Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere! This kind of place is always pricey but was full wen left. Had reservation but waited longer than should! Hostess staff could be friendlier. Pet peeve of mine,hate to see a manager just walking around doing nothing when restaurant is busy!
