Loved the flavor, high quality, experience of a hibachi chef, and delicious, completing satisfying lunch. Dislike having to sit so close to someone I don't know (when you have a small party) and have such a small amount of space for my things to not be in other peoples way.

Very accommodating with the kids. Fun atmosphere and great staff. Make sure to make reservations we made right away in morning and still were only able to get in at either 5 or 9 pm. Probably because we are a family of 5. We waited at bar while they waited to pair us with another family at table. Bar staff... More

The manager made me and my family leave the restaurant because my two year old was excited about the show the cook was putting on. No where does it state children aren't allowed after certain hours! The manager claimed that other guest were complaining about my child. I am a paying customer as well should have been some accommodations. The... More

What can I say? I love Benihana. Love it. I've been to several around the country, including the other one here in the Twin Cities, and I prefer the Maple Grove location. Staff is always friendly, and the food . . . the FOOD! SO good. I always have the same thing--the Benihana Delight with fried rice. I just can't... More

We decided to go for a Fathers Day weekend treat. The food was fantastic. We ordered Fillet Mignon with a lobster tail. It was really, really excellent. The Fillet was cooked to perfection and so tender, you hardly had to chew! Along with all the rest that is offered as part of your meal - soup, salad, appetizer shrimp, cooked... More

I've been here 3-4 times during my travels to Minnesota. Place is always packed even during weekdays and the wait is normally over one hour without a reservation. It's a very popular birthday place as they give a $30 off coupon for your birthday. They must have sung happy birthday to someone every 10 minutes while we were there. Sushi... More

I love the food here and the shrimp sauce - wow!! I really like that I can get food to go also however that is also my one complaint. There are times I call to get just some fried rice to go and I am told it will be 1- 1 1/2 hours to get it. Really?? Fried rice? so... More

Went to Benihana with a party of 9 and was sat in the back corner where all the dirty trays come back, kind of gross. Then took forever for the cook to come over. Food was overpriced and not very well prepared as other private chain Japanese steakhouse's. My son got a sushi mean and he was not pleased with... More
