This is one of my go-to Japanese restaurants. Love their onion soup and salad dressing for starters. The shrimp and scallops are phenomenal! Kids love going here.

Strangeky enough I had never been here before, but went with a group and had a good time. The preparation of the food is most of the attraction, highly suggest making a reservation and showing up 1/2 hour early and get yourself a drink before you sit down to eat. Make sure you order the chicken fried rice option with... More

Always an enjoyable experience watching the chefs make the food right at you table. Large portions, I order the Surfside, Shrimp, Calamari and Sea Scallops If you like fried rice there's is great with lots of garlic. My favorite. Hubby orders his chicken extra spicy. Great place for special occasions.

The food was good - the chef cooking was entertaining. However. I honestly don't get all the hype plus you have. To sit with other people you don't know - I hated that. If that is your thing you will enjoy it, but when I go to a restaurant and I am paying a decent amount of money I don't... More

This is a great place to go with a group. Went for our daughters birthday. The chefs do amazing things with the food and their utensils. Food is yummy. I will say it is a little pricey but well worth it for a special occasion. Bother even take your picture and give it to you in a little holder at... More

What a disaster this place is turning into... My girlfriend and I love to celebrate her birthday every year at Benihana to enjoy the show and the great fried rice. This year I think the tradition died. Our first bad experience was calling to try to get a reservation for the Japantown location a few days ago, only to have... More

This Benihana is not as good as the one closest to me (Torrance, CA), but it was good. The atmosphere was mediocre and our chef was not so enthusiatic. The hostess was excellent. My scallops were undercooked, but everyone else in group was happy and all the food was eaten.
