“Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This restaurant is a fun place to have dinner, with chefs cooking in front of you, flipping food on your plate, and having a good time. I recommend going for happy hour in the bar, which has discounted appetizers and specials on drinks and sake.

This place is amazing. I was having chills through the whole meal, watching it be prepared in front of me. I saw a little girl touch the skillet, though :l gosh lol

“A Fun Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We go to two different Benihanas, One is in Cupertino and the other is in the Portland Oregon area. The service is is always entertaining and each chef usually does something that we have not seen on previous visits. The soup and fried rice are wonderful and the entrees are always delicious. We go to celebrate birthdays. It is the most fun when you have a large enough group to occupy an entire table.

“What's not to LOVE about this place?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great place to go in general but this occasion happened to be a first date. I say this because it allows for those quiet moments. You can watch them cook and not have to worry about talking or you can converse with your date while they cook. It also will relax your date by being a part if the experience.

The monthly specials are worth looking at if you want to save a buck.

“Still a Good Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Still offers the Japanese knife twirling show but the food is great and the prices are reasonable. Fun place for birthdays and it always seems to be full.
