Good for special night with kids

Benihana is not a weekly or even monthly restaurant destination for most people. However, it is great for a special occasion; especially with kids (grandkids in our case) We were seated right away when we arrived for our reservation. The food and service were very good. Yes, it might be pricey but... read more

We have been regular customers at this restaurant since it opened when the service and food were excellent. Unfortunately this is no longer the case. The service is sketchy at best, the yummy yummy sauce appears to have been watered down leaving it tasteless and we had to ask for the green tea which used to come automatically. The cleanliness...

We had a great time, the food was amazing, the ambience was great. Took my 8 year old and the chef was so attentive to her and made her laugh and she loved it. Would definitely go back.

Note to self, if you want to eat here on a weekend, get a reservation! We did not. Plan B is eating in the restaurant with no chef experience. We had to go with Plan B. The waiter was polite and attentive. The food was excellent. Would highly recommend.

I stay in the area several times per month. I usually include one visit here each week I'm in town because the food is great, even if you order their hibachi menu in the bar. And their sushi is always fresh. Service is good too. I've never had a bad experience here.

We had a team dinner in this Japanese restaurant. And we enjoyed not only the food but also performance of preparing our dishes just in front of us! Great place for team events, but very loud...

Decided on a whim to eat here for dinner. The food and service was amazing. Both kids liked their kids meals. Honestly one of the best dinners I have had in a while. It is on the expensive side but still a quality meal.

So there are at least 2 other hibachi a within 5 miles of this place and this is the first time that I've ever left a hibachi hungry. Very small portions and let's face it. You come for the show! Absolutely no fire or show. No very excited about coming back. Quality of food was good but SMALL portions. Bummer.

You know exactly what you are going to get at Benihana. The food is fine with tons of salt and butter. They try to sell you alcohol at every turn. The chefs are adequate but not really much fun since they did away with fire tricks years ago. The check in staff was rude and disappointing - not "welcome to... More
