This was my first time here and I was comparing to kobe steak house. We had a friendly waiter and chef was okay, not a lot of personality. Just so happens the Denver broncos were in town and Ben Garland was seated next to me. I informed them it was my bday and they dang and brought ice cream, but... More

We had filet minion with colossal shrimp, scallops. The dinner came... More

First return visit to a Benihana in 20 years. Still OK for a family outing. Not the gourmet spot from years ago.

Service from the moment we walked in was sub par. No more the beautiful Japnese music to create ambiance, and the hostesses made us feel like we should be thankful for their attention in this empty restaurant. Because we were awaiting 2 members of our party we waited in the front (lounge area?). The bar tender couldn't be bothered with... More

My wife and I come here often enough that they know what we order and that's AWESOME !!! The food & service here is always impeccable. We split the Rocky's Choice but upgrade to the filet mignon. A couple of sushi rolls as an appetizer and top it all of with chocolate ice cream, yum !!!

We were part of a large group that went in for dinner. We did not have to wait to be seated. Great food and entertainment. A little pricey, but we had a good time so didn't mind the extra cost.

We decided to go here because it was close to our hotel. A bit disappointed. We opted for the fried rice which was good. My husband had the Ocean Treasure, which consisted of colossal shrimp (3), small scallops (6), and a lobster tail. He was served first. The chef then started my chicken. Once my chicken had cooked he then... More

Sat with some friends at the bar area, but ordered off the grill as I was hungry. The onion soup was tasty, but the salad was watery and very heavy on the ginger and I left about half of it behind. My main was the steak and chicken combo, and I was handed a messy plate that had rice falling... More

Since we were staying in a hotel close by, my husband and stopped by there spontaneously for lunch and loved it. We used to live on Hawaii and loved Tanaka of Tokyo. So the mainland alternative benihanas is just delicious. Fresh food and good service.
