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.

A recent meal at the local Benihana was not the most relaxing that I have come to expect. We eat in the bar area, not at the grill. First off, the table was sticky. Despite the assurance from the server that the tables were all clean and the stickiness I insisted the table be wiped down again. The server said... More

Great food and you can watch your food being prepared at the table. My kids love the sushi too. I encourage you to join their Chef's Table online. You'll receive a $30 gift certificate for use during your birthday month. Great time to go out and Benihana will give you a free photo of your group.

We went for lunch on Valentines Day. It was packed, but the food was excellent. The kids enjoyed the chef. He was very entertaining. Would definitely recommend it.

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!!!!

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~
