We had a reservation at 8:15 which isn't prime dinner time, but still we had a wait for our table. When we were finally seated, we had another wait. The chef came and cooked the food, and unfortunately it wasn't that great. The salad with...More

We love, love Benihana’s. But this one, not so much. While they were awesome on getting us a seat, the waiter completely forgot us for 20 minutes. He was clearly having an off night. The chef was funny and engaging, the food was good, but...More

Went with an old buddy of mine based on his recommendation. This was his favorite and quickly became mine too. Great food, great service and a good night overall.

Plenty of free parking. Busy but quick and courteous service. Tappan style cooking was excellent entertainment. Food was good but everything is not plated at same time. Therefore, rice is prepared and sits while other food items are cooked.

This restaurant is good for a small groups celebrating birthdays or special events. One can enjoy a show and chefs' mastery. However, for anti-social individuals, it could be very uncomfortable to share space and have a small talk. Otherwise, simple food and entertainment.

I am reading relatively recent reviews of this restaurant and am trying to figure out if I went to a different Benihana in Cupertino? I will not dispute the customer service experience someone claims to have had. I WILL say we had a great time...More

The restaurant has an upscale looking interior consistent with hibachi-style Japanese steakhouse. The food quality was consistent with what one would expect from hibachi style cooking. The filet mignon was relatively tender and the chicken was relatively on the dry side. But what's upsetting is...More

I must confess, I would never have picked this one, but I was part of a group that had chosen to go here for our dinner together. Benihana is a national chain that has been around for years, and I kind of regard it as...More
