Used to be a terrific place for Japanese food, but now just average. I think it is the quality of the ingredients, but not the atmosphere, and table top chiefs. Our last three dinners here were just not up to par for the prices they charge! Entertainment was still great by the chiefs at your table.

Friends invited us to the Benihana restaurant. We will never forget this visit, the pleasure we had watching the cook preparing the food in front of us and was it ever good. Now I will search for one in Switzerland......

We waited for about 15 minutes past our reservation time because it was so busy, but from there the timing of the service/meal was prompt and attentive. We have been to numerous hibachi restaurants for the kids' birthday celebrations and I... More

I have been to this restaurant for 20 years if you can believe it. My family and I love coming here because we always have a good time and some good laughs...but the quality has gradually declined over the past 10-15 years ago and then considerably in the past year. The last time we went this month, they had really... More

The ambiance and atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. The service was average. However, our Chef was very entertaining which made the whole experience very enjoyable. Food was delicious and cooked to our liking. Great for any occasion.

My husband and I love going to Benihana for dinner...and happy hour too! Always a fun night out, and the birthday club makes it especially worth it with the $30 coupon for the bday person!

The food was great. The servers were busy and forgot about us at first but the wait was worth it. After a long day at work I truly appreciated the cozy environment.

Behihana isn't for traditionalist. However if you are looking for entertainment by skilled professionals who prepare your food this is the place. They have been in business in our area for several years, they are doing something right.
