The restaurant itself was nice and the location was great but the food was lacking unfortunately... To start the soup had a good flavor but was barely luke warm at best. The salad had nearly no dressing on it which turned out to be a good thing because I think the dressing was spoiled somehow as the flavor was awful.... More

Thank you for writing. We are located on the Atlantic where every seat has an ocean view. Our salad dressing is made fresh daily and the beauty of having your chef cook at your table is to ensure that everything is seasoned to your liking. I think our Hibachi Chicken Fried Rice is the best in the world which I... More

Food was so-so, we have had much better at other Benihana's, this location was a disappointment. We had a Open Table reservation, but they were not ready for us. We had a trainee chef, so the experience was just so-so.

All Benihana restaurants cook to the same high standard using the same quality product. Our teppan chefs all go through the same extensive training program prior to cooking for guests at our tables/grills. Some chefs are more entertaining than others but they are all professional and strive to achieve total guest satisfaction. We hope to serve you again soon. Sincerely,... More

A great evening of dining....The sushi was delicious and the hibachi service was very good. The food was prepared very well and the fried rice was terrific...Drinks were very good. Our chef was very personable and cooked the food at a very nice pace....The "jumbo shrimps" were not so jumbo but all in all, the meal was very nice....

We had another fantastic dinner last Saturday: the food is always amazing, the "show" put on by the chefs are fun and the consistency is something we count on.

We arrived at 8 pm. The restaurant was not very busy. Had steak hibachi that was bland. The timing was off on veggies. Onion wasn't served until after everyone was done dinner. Salad was not very good.

The beauty of having your chef cook in front of you is that you can request extra seasoning as needed. Our chefs are always willing to add garlic butter to your steak and your server will always bring extra ginger based dressing for your salad. Hope to serve you again and please don't hesitate to ask.

We've eaten at a few Benihanas around the world so we know what we are getting. The experience really depends on the chef and ours was pretty good - he made it a fun evening.

Benihana is a favorite restaurant of my son so it was his pick for dinner. The food was as expected, traditional BH cuisine. Our chef was wonderful, very engaging and infused the conversation with humor. We would go back!
