We had chef Aaron who not only cooked us a fabulous meal but entertained us as well. The food was fabulous. The las Vegas roll is great. Not only do they have good food it's a great experience.

Visiting Minneapolis this summer, we were invited out to try out a different dining experience. This was our first time at Benihana, but the next time we are in Minneapolis, we would like to go back. Friendly staff and very good food but a little pricey. We did have fun though, the antics of our personal waiter/chef Jorge made our... More

Several family members gathered at Benihana to celebrate a special birthday on a Sunday evening. With reservations we were seated immediately. It was great entertainment and great food too. Service is excellent as well. We all had a good time.

The wait staff was all extremely friendly and commented that they love working there. The food was ok but super expensive @ about $200 for family of 4. Quality was good. Would like to see them give the tables, booths and walls a good scrubbing. We sat at the back of the restaurant where they stage the cooking trolleys and... More

We celebrated a couple birthdays at Benihana and had a great time. The chef was very witty and he kept us laughing as we watched him perform his magic on our dinner. The food was good the atmospere was nice and it was something different from an every day dinner out. It wasn't dinner it was an experience! Thanks,

Was expensive, yet right across the street. The food was delicious, but small portion. We took it Togo though, so that was probably our fault

Benihana is truly a dining experience, Watching the Chefs prepare the food with such ease and style is worth going there just for that. The atmosphere is excellent as is the quality and portions of the food served. Wait staff is very in tune with the needs of the patrons. Quite a neat place for a relaxing evening out,

Thank Al M
