Great food, service a bit slow.

The food here was excellent, but the service was a bit slow. We were served one of our appetizers after the main course as it seemed to be forgotten about. Good food and left overfull.

We had a fun time with our chef "Sam"... He made the dinner hysterical...even the teenage son was laughing. But not all chefs are created equal, I saw at another table a chef that was struggling to entertain his group. Come hungry there's alot of food but it's definitely a special occasion place.

We love this location and were fortunate to have the head table chef Sam this time, The food is excellent and the show he put on was great. All 6 of us loved it. For a little extra we got the chicken fried rice - was a highlight to my meal

The food quality was great and the service was excellent. The place got VERY crowded (I ate at the bar) so you might want to make a reservation.

We come for everyone in my family's birthday with the Chef's table coupon and it's amazing. I always get the splash and meadow and I'm never disappointed. Also the Haiku colada is great try it.

We have three family birthdays in June and used our $30 birthday coupons (with another adult meal for each) for six meals. Benihana was fun as always with great food!. Chef did a new trick with an egg yolk along with the old favorites such as the onion volcano. Kids always love it, but the adults do too!

My son and I eat here all the time and we just love the Maple Grove location because we can walk over to Dave & Busters afterwards to finish the night off with some games! Benihana is so entertaining for the entire family. We love their fried rice and sauces... wonderful! I also love the birthday club for parents and... More

My parents brought my brother and I and our significant others as a birthday present for all of us. Not only was it our first time, but we were so excited because we heard so much about the place! Well needless to say, we are now addicted! Our server was very attentive and our chef was hilarious! We thoroughly enjoyed... More

We both had the hibachi filet mignon dinner. It was cooked perfectly. The appetizer of grilled shrimp absolutely POPPED in my mouth....I wanted more shrimp! It is worth the $3 upgrade to go with the fried rice option vs the steamed white rice. The fried rice "show" is worth it alone! Try the plum dessert wine. It has a cherry... More
