We had set lunches consisting of shrimp, steak, and chicken. Fried rice is excellent, as well as vegetables and the tepanyaki experience. The Chef was well experienced and fun.

We stopped in around 12:30pm for lunch and found the restaurant somewhat empty but they put us at a Hibachi Table even though we were just two people. The Chef was great entertaining us and cooking our shrimp and steak. Wonderful lunch, we even had a glass of wine. Service was also good and we tipped accordingly. Highly recommend you... More

I've visited Benihana at this location several times. However, during my recent dining experience the chef just completely skipped over the tricks. I did dine during the lunch hour, so maybe that played into forgoing the tricks. There were kids at our table, and I almost intervened on their behalf with a request for tricks. Any who, with that said,... More

We hadn't been to a Benihana in many years, but were so glad we picked this place. We love hibachi-style food and this was good. The menu has a ton of choices and it beats me how the chef kept everything straight. The chicken, shrimp, beef and scallops all went to the correct customers. I would say that the steak... More

I was introduced to Benihanas by my best friend from high school, as I had never been to one before. To say that it was a life changing event is a complete understatement, as when I lived in the Chicago area, I would be at this location literally every month (and sometimes even twice a month!!) Sadly, with my move... More

Typical Japanese restaurant, I wanted to go to one of the original ones because I though there would be something special, I was wrong. Actually thought about rating lower but the food was halfway decent. Just nothing special about it, Not seasoned well. The chef seemed like he was preoccupied and in a hurry and not very interactive with the... More

We went as a group of 6 to celebrate a birthday at lunch. All of the food was excellent and the chef who took care of us was very friendly and entertaining.

I really was looking forward to hibachi steak at a Japanese restaurant which is why we decided to try Benihana. What a horrible dinner. The quality of the food was so poor. The soup was a salty broth. The lettuce was primarily iceberg with a sad substitute for a ginger dressing. But the worst part of the meal was still... More
