Ate at the sushi bar 1st night. It was awesome. The bar made up some custom rolls for us and named them after our hometown. We came in the following night, he remembered us and already had us hooked up by the time we were...More

This was previously a loosely affiliated member of the Benihana chain. They have ended that affiliation and changed the name to Hamanasu. It is in the same site. I have submitted a review under that name.

This restaurant has been taken over by a new company but the food remains the same, great. We enjoyed our evening and the show at the Hibachi table and Tony, our chef , did a fantastic job. This is a Japanese type menu and includes...More

We went to Benihana for my wife's birthday. It was nice that they had noted it was for her birthday from my reservation request as they knew right away, and they took our picture before dinner which was printed and given to us right away....More

Great restaurant for kids and good menu they can eat off. Adult menu is okay but you typically go here for the experience more than anything.

I've been here many times and I love the atmosphere here. It's always great fun (predictable but fun). The food is great. I've recommended the place to several friends. I'll definitely be going back again.

We brought our entire staff here for dinner and the food was delicious. Very little has changed regarding the tableside cooking show in the two decades since I last visited, but the food was as tasty as I remember. When I mentioned my shellfish allergy,...More

I have not eaten at Benihana for probably 35-40 years. My wife has never been, and we were around the corner today in Seattle, so I thought I would give it a try. Long story short...not the least bit impressed. Bland, unexciting overpriced food. I...More
