We ate at the sushi bar in the middle of the afternoon off the happy hour menu. They were attentive though they were getting ready for the evening rush. The salmon, as expected, was amazing. We got great service and it was priced reasonably.

This is the worst benihana! 45 minutes after being seated we didn't even have soup or salad. And it was not worth waiting for. Everything we had was tasteless and my chicken was tough.More

Very convenient to the Clarion Downtown. Service was very good and food was good and served hot. They have a separate area where most people go for family style cooking in front of you service, not our choice.

I want to start out by stating that the chef was excellent. The real issue I had was with the quality/quantity of the food. It started with the soup and salad, which I love. When we received it, we shortly received our appetizer we ordered....More

The sushi menu is small, and all made by frozen fish. Go there if you want to eat teppanyaki. The teppanyaki show looks good and exciting. The pricing is midrange.
