This place is a great value when yo ucome here for your free birthday meal. My only complaint is the chef was just going through the motions and i don't think he even smiled once.

We had a hell of a time getting thru on the phone to make reservations for 3 days then once we got thru the only time available for a party of 2 on Saturday night was 9:30pm. We said ok. Went to an early movie and risked it, showed up at Benihana early (8:30), never mentioned we had reservations and... More

My wife and our 5 year old have been going here for a couple of years. First the service treat our little guy like a king with blended fruit drinks and snacks as we wait for our food. Enrique is not only a king of what he makes, but will ask you what you want and how you want your... More

Next time Iwill try the sushi. It looked fabulous. My hibachi dinner was perfect, but then I'm a fan of the shrimp sauce. I even put it on the rice. Oh, the white rice was way above average. I love the average white rice served in most asian restaurants, but Benihana's is a cut above.

I guess you could say that Benihana is a staple Japanese Steakhouse. This was the first time I'd actually been to a Benihana specificallly and I definitely enjoyed it. If you're in a small party, expect to be seated with some strangers which can be a lot of fun. The server was very attentive and prompt. The meal, cooked right... More

I have eaten at different Benihana restaurants and this one is much like any other. We enjoyed our meal. I rate it very good mostly because of the price. Atmosphere and menu offerings are good.

I went here with my family for my dad's birthday and we had an overall great experience. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The food tasted very good and you get a lot though it is rather expensive. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and we will go back in the future.

Reservations is the best route to go otherwise expect at least a 45 minute wait during dinner hours but its well worth the wait! The cook is always entertaining and the food is very good. The shrimp sauce (does not contain any shrimp) is good on EVERYTHING. The prices are high but worth it seeing its only about $5-10 higher... More
