Whether you are eating at a kabuki table or in the lounge, the food is always stellar, the sake is delectable and the staff helpful.

We typically go here because our daughters love the show the cooks put on. This year Nov. 2014 the service was very bad. We always feel like sardine #9 in a 10 count can. There is no personalization anymore. You show up and get placed with strangers, period. No chance they will light the grill unless you have someone you've... More

We went with friends and enjoyed the experience. The prices are a little high for families with children. Mainly for adults. The chefs are very skilled and have a good sense of humor. Hours are different, they are closed for part of the day. Very convenient location. Close to all the major shopping and major freeways.

I want to start by saying, that we have several friends and family who are members of "The Chef's Table," and therefore our family eats at Benihana often, and when the kids are too crabby, we often order take out, as well... The one constant in our experiences, is the YUMMY food!! I wish I could say the same about... More

This place is really always amazing. The food prepared before your eyes never fails to delight. The chef seems to always have a great sense of humour and a real knack for entertainment. I would have given a higher rating but we ended up waiting for a long time to be seated. There were about 15 of us and we... More

This is my go to restaurant. Filet Mignon(my steak of choice) is always cooked the way I liked, the chicken fried rice is a hit and miss, honestly depends on the cook. Servers are polite and courteous 90% of the time, but they could work on it a bit. But I still visit here 2-3 times a month, and will... More

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
