If there was a negative rating I would give it! My kids were with their cousins 19 yr old and they did not seat them for over and hour! You should not assume that just because they are kids not to serve them on Christmas is very unjust! I would never recommend this place or go there again!

I recall hearing a comedian one time joke about going to a Japanese Steakhouse and having a fat white guy named Bubba doing the cooking. Not quite that extreme, but a Hispanic male that didn't speak very good English. Food was ok, certainly have had better in town...

We were one of several groups celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Our 6 year old granddaughter was celebrating her birthday and our chef William doted on her a bit which she loved. Our steaks were prepared as we ordered and the rest of the food was good too. Attentive server and ample food. Good experience!

Hostess was nice, server was nice and on top of it, but our chef was very boring and not entertaining like other teppanyaki grills I have been to before. No interaction with customers at all. Wont repeat.

We have never been here when it wasn't first class service and food. My whole family loves this place. Can't say enough about how great the food is. A little pricey for a family so we don't go as often as we would like, but is a great place to have dinner.

I've been to Benihanas' before but not this one. The host was able to get us in right away despite not having reservations. The food was delicious as always and the Benihana Punch was spot on.

It can get noisy but a fun place to celebrate festivities. Always nice to watch the chef do his thing with the creativity .

We had a pleasant lunch at Benihana before our plane trips leaving Texas. Our waitress was very accommodating and entertaining as well. Our chef was kind of a dud. You had to wonder a little about him. He was a little slow getting set up. He did not put on much of a show, but the food was excellent! Our... More

The food was great, and the chef was entertaining while cooking everything in front of us. Some say this is an expensive place, but with soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, and rice with your meal, it really is a deal. My wife loved it and wants to return.
