“The best restaurant out there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

I have eaten at Benihana about four or five times and I absolutely love it! I never thought I liked shrimp but I loved it here! I think it's better to go in a group of eight since that is what the table seats!

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2010

Always entertaining and always a good time. Benihana's almost always gets our vote for dinner on special occasions. Don't forget the shrimp sauce that's the best part!
I always order the "triple", dump the shrimp sauce on it. The "Triple" is just enough food to eat there and still have some left over to bring home for lunch the next day.

We always have a great time there!!

“Terrible start for new restaurant in town”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2009

The chef dropped the spatula on the floor and proceeded to use it. He couldn't stick the landing on some tricks. Jose - you need a lot of practice before you are allowed out on the floor again. Manager was called and she acknowledged that he should not have been on the floor cooking as they had the same complaint from other patrons. She was busy doing paperwork and did not know he was allowed to cook. She did try to repair by cutting the check in half but knowingly leaving someone who is not prepared on the floor would have gotten her and Jose fired on the spot. Bad way to start.
