“Great Experience”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Service was very good, appetizers in the bar were awesome and dinner around the grill was worth the price. I would go again for a special occasion, bit spendy for just a dinner out.

“Love this place”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The food is fresh. Can't say it is always cooked delisiously, because it greatly depends who is cooking for you. But the added benefit of a life cooking show substitutes for any flow :)

“Chef Jeff is great!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We make an annual trek to Benihana for my son's birthday and our recent experience with Chef Jeff was fantastic. It was one the most flavorful meals we've had there.

“Good Service, mediocre shushi”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The service in this restaurant was very good. Everyone was attentive and very nice. Having said this, the sushi was overall not very fresh and some rolls were actually pre-made. The seafood soup did not have too much flavor and some of the vegetables in there were under cooked.

“Most reliable good food and good times of any restaurant!!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Regardless of where my husband and I eat Benihana's it never disappoints! The only thing that could make it anything other than awesome are the people you share the table with, so just be sure to bring your own cool party of eight!! We love the food , the portions, service and experience! The Anchorage crew is great, many Kudos to them. I love the emails each month with the chef's specials, and the birthday meals for free!! Will continue to go back each month!
