I remember a time when Benihana was the gold standard for Japanese Hitachi restaurants, not anymore. We went as a family for a birthday, and didn't think it was anything special. The service was very slow, we sat at out table for probably ten minutes before we were even approached for our drink order. The entire meal took over an hour and a half, and not because we ordered multiple courses. There was just a ton of downtime between each time we were waited on or served. Believe me, I understand spreading out a meal, and we weren't in a hurry, it was just really slow... and the restaurant was only about ten percent full.
The food was good, the steak was a nice cut, my daughter liked her white noodles, everything else, chicken, rice, shrimp, was typical. Our "chef" was very shy and didn't put on much of a show.
Our meal was $100.00 for four people without a tip, and none of us were drinking.
We'll find someplace else next time. Sorry Benihana
