    The food was hot fresh and fabulous. Always a fun time at Benihana. This is our first time we were at this location. Very enjoyable evening.

    Absolutely awful! Our server was exceptionally rude and careless. I wanted to leave, but it was my friend’s first time at a teppanyaki / hibachi grill. We should have left Benihana and gone elsewhere. I asked my server three times for water and was ignored the first time. The second time they snapped at me barking that I ordered tea. The third time they said they would bring it, but didn’t (again.) I asked another server (fourth time) and finally got some water. My napkin was dirty, so I asked for another. The replacement was dirty, so I asked for another replacement. The third napkin was dirty, so I asked for another replacement. The fourth napkin was also dirty, but only on one side and I lost confidence in the cleanliness and sanitary standards at Benihana. The chef did the bare minimum. Highly disappointing especially for my friend’s first time at a teppanyaki / hibachi grill. We would have appreciated some effort and more theatrics. The food was typical Benihana. I felt rushed to leave by my server who pestered us to pay. When we paid, not only was a lobster tail added to my friend’s bill (he didn’t order it and is allergic to it), Benihana also added a 10% service charge! I feel scammed and would never recommend Benihana. I guess I will start scouring menus for hidden fees. Overall, Benihana was a disaster, terrible experience and value. Find another teppanyaki / hibachi grill.

    Awful. Benihana has added a 20% service charge to all checks that do not go to the server, so what we would have tipped they now get. We didn't get a cook until we had been there over an hour. The prices had increased significantly so our bill was outrageous. Obviously they don't care about their staff or customers. Never again, it used to be a fun place for birthdays, but I just felt ripped off for a very mediocre experience.

    Despite having made a reservation several weeks in advance, we were seated over 30 minutes after our scheduled time. We ordered drinks right away and they also took nearly 30 minutes to arrive. It's not clear if they were watered down or all the ice had just melted but they were not great. Some people didn't get their soup until halfway through the entree, even though others got it at the start of cooking. We also repeatedly asked for a white rice that didn't come until we were ready for the check. Overall, things were good but the service really took it all down a notch. The waiter was clearly stretched far too thing and was struggling to keep up.

    Our order was read to us 3 times. 1x by the training waitress 1x by the trainer 1x by the cook Corrected them all 3 times and still got our order wrong. The chef was sloppy, cooked things out of order and didn’t under English well enough to understand what we want. The tables took forever to be cleaned off. We would get our next course with the course before plates still there. Was not impressed for having to pay a $200 bill.

    Had reservations for 6:30 pm. Got our drinks after 7pm. Food started around 7:30 pm. Chef was great but beverages, I guess, were a one-time thing. I got my white rice and refill of diet Pepsi at the end of the meal. ???? Took forever to get anything and it wasn't too busy. A shame since it was my grandson's 8th birthday and his first time there. I'll be back someday but probable not for a long time. Maybe.

    I thought the food and experience was great. There was not enough staff to get the table cleared after each course so there were a lot of dishes on the table, which made for a cramped experience.
