Benihana's is always a fun night out. Our chef was Andrew who was excellent! The food was wonderful and quick. In fact we went back a second night.

Food was delicious and the portions were huge. We had take out containers for lunch the next day! The lemonade punch was so good and refills are free so the server kept them coming!

We were going to eat at the Steakhouse next door, but found out it was closed on Sunday. After a 50 minute wait and a misunderstanding about where we wanted to sit, the food was absolutely delicious! However, the wait staff just seemed confused and unenthused about working there. Apathetic about taking our order, listening to us when we asked... More

I ordered the Samurai Treat - a filet mignon with colossal shrimp and received the same 'New York strip steak' that my friend ordered. I ordered medium rare and the steak was inedible. The shrimp was overcooked and rubbery. Yuck! The rice was great, though! To round things off, my bill came and I saw that the TAX on my... More

I get it. It's an established business and everyone has a favorite. At the request of some colleagues, I joined them with my spouse for dinner at Benihana. The only good thing I can say is that I did enjoy the salad and the chef was personable and fun to watch. The not-so-good things are that the friend rice was... More

We went here to celebrate my wife's birthday and had a great time! The chef was very entertaining and the food was great. The manager brought us a sushi sampler plate and it was great. I had the habachi tenderloin with scallops and it was amazing! Everyone else said their food was fantastic as well. Parking can get tight but... More

I've eaten here several times over the past 15 years and was always 5* service. This time it was just a bit off. Chef did a fine job of meal prep. There was just no entertainment as in the past. It was still a very good meal. Just hope next time the entertainment is back.

It is somewhat of a family custom for my family to go to Benihana for my middle child's birthday. She loves the place! However, it did not live up to our expectations this night. While we normally have great food and an entertaining chef, this was not the case tonight. Instead of the usual oriental chefs we get, we got... More
