The manager here had very poor customer service skills. Wouldn't tell me his name but I know it was a Hispanic male probably in late 30s and weighing about 400 pounds. His demeanor was very unprofessional and looked like someone that should be working at mcdonalds. We had reservations and still had to wait 30 minutes after arriving. And then... More

Showed up on a weeknight with a large group, including a very famous celebrity. The hostess gave us dirty looks because we were a "rocker" crowd, and told my celebrity friend that he would have to button up his shirt or she wouldn't let us inside (his shirt was unbuttoned a little bit low and was not offensive to anyone)....

Awesome sushi, great restaurant easy parking, warm and inviting a little pricey but not for the entertainment factor as well as the fresh food! Anyone is welcome families, singles, large groups, business and couples.

This is a nice treat. Maybe 3-4 times a year it's in rotation and am always happy I came. Except for how your clothes smell. But good food and plenty of value. $24 for an entree is good in itself, then add soup, salad, fried rice and zucchini and mushrooms and its even more a treat. Food and presentation are... More

The customer service was below what I expected. Good sushi and great to take back to hotel. Store on corner for a bottle of wine.

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

This place was amazing! Went with some friends for dinner (make a reservation). We were seated immediately. It was a family restaurant, there were kids, so its not really your "date" environment but nice. The food was excellent! Prepared right before your eyes by a chef made to perfection! 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 !!!
