Where do I start... I attempted calling in a ToGo order for 30 minutes prior to arriving. No one would answer. I arrive at 6:15 and placed my order, as well as paid for my order. At 6:50 I asked if my order was ready. The host that went to check disappeared. At 7:10, I advised the other hostess that... More

We have been to this Benihana several times in the past. This was the first time since they remodeled. The food is still excellent and we loved watching it being prepared.

My wife and I go there every year for one or the others birthday. It's always fun and one has the choice of either seeing the show at the main tables complete with chef and food tricks, OR one can eat at the sushi bar if you don't want to sit with a crowd. Either way is a winner.

I always enjoy dining at Benihana's with my family. The food is great and cooked to order in front of you on a grill/table, there's also a full bar. The chef makes it entertaining by doing fun tricks while cooking your food table side. If you come with a small group then you might be seated with strangers but it's... More

I have my birthday in Benihana on 4/16/2016 along with brother's.(all in April/2016). My family, brother's family and my mother were there. Service is great. We do have nice pictures for the whole family on birthday's celebration. Family, kids and I did enjoy it. Thanks, Benihana.

We've been coming here for over 20 years to enjoy the sushi with our favorite sushi chefs who have been there for most of those years. Even though over time, the quality and range of offerings has diminished as a result of corporate mandates, our chefs always take care of us and make sure they feed us only the freshest... More

I had a $30 off coupon for my birthday so I went whole hog. We were a table of 8 and Juan was our cook. I think I had the most expensive thing on the menu but it was worth it. The beef melted in your mouth. I passed pieces of both lobster and beef around the table and all... More

The lunch specials are such a great value...you get the same amazing quality as the dinner but at a fraction of the price. Expect to spend a little extra time here though and to smell like Hibachi for the rest of the day. But other than that, so worth the wait.
