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

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

We were recently treated to a real meal preparation extravaganza at Maple Grove's Benehana's Restaurant. There were 6 in our party and we were almost hypnotized by the constant knife and spatula work of our food chef. From shrimp to steak to calamari... everything turned out great. Highly recommended for a special night out.

Called to check their hours and was advised to make a reservation - for a 3:30 late lunch. Upon arrival there were 2 other patrons also waiting for food. Service was prompt, food prepared with skill. Large portions were served. The general taste was bland and the yumyum sauce was mayonnaise like. Overpriced for a tasteless experience.

My daughter always wants to go here for special occasions with the family. The chefs put on a great show. The fried rice is outstanding.
