This Benehana is extremely busy and they really seem to just shuttle you through the routine. They almost seemed irritated that they were so busy. People expect a nice show with the dinner...I find it akward to sit with people I don't know and eat and the chef's seem bored with the routine...

.. so if you wanna go there (and you´re car will be valet parked), make a reservation.

The food is typical Benihana, i would say slighty smaller portions than other Benihanas, but that can be wrong. The place itself is very packed, try to get one of the more private tables, otherwise it just enough room to breath, but comfortable is something else...

So, nice food at affordable prices, but nothing to head to...

The food is really good, healthy and the chefs, although they are probably not all Japanese, try hard to make the meal a show! It sort of makes is more fun! We tried to teach them some Japanese! we went to dinner before a trip in June and again on the way to another trip in Sept. Great, both times.

The only reason why I give the a 4 rating is because of Santos our teppan chef. He is a rock star and kid friendly. My food was consistently what you expect from Benihana. I have been a frequent patron to this franchise for over 3 decades coast to coast and Oahu. The staff were attentive and friendly. We had a 6 PM reservation and when we arrived the place was hoping. If you like watching airliners on approach and like to be on the waterfront this is a GREAT location. Get there before 6 for happy hour. Half price drinks. What surprised me was the condition of the carpet throughout the restaurant. CHANGE It!!!! It cost you a rating star. Clone Santos!
