    HORRIBLE experience! Service was awful!!! Staff was crabby. Our Chef was good - but that was probably the only good thing about the whole evening! I understand restaurants are struggling and timing can be an issue - but this was beyond acceptable!!!

    Service was slow. The food and cook were good. The reason not 5 stars, they automatically charge 30% service charge!! I want to be able to leave my tip based on the service I received.

    The waiter was extremely slow also based on the fact that he walked in the door behind us and was told he was already late. By other staff it took a half an hour to get our bill in 15 minutes to get my card back. The cook did what he could did not perform like the other ones have in the past.

    The service charge was not disclosed until after the meal. The up charge for fried rice was astronomical for what few things that get added.

    Good show and Chef were amazing, Unfortunately we barely saw our server, sat without drinks for 80% of the show, and she was not in a good mood, took away from the experience. I hope she feels better soon!

    Food was great but service they were unapologetically short staffed. I don’t blame those working as they looked like their moral was in the cellar. Manager was difficult to identify. Of course they wanted everyone to pay full price. As stated the food was good and the chef was fun.

    Absolutely horrible experience. Took over an hour to be seated after our reservation. Service was slow and food was ok at best. Manager on duty had no idea what she was doing. Sushi was spoiled. Had a terrible fishy smell. Will never return. Look for a different location. This one was beyond horrible!

    Waited aver an hour and a half for a chef to come to the table. Got drinks, soup and salad and then just sat for an hour and a half. Food was good and the chef was great but seating people knowing they are that far behind and not telling us that prior to ordering and getting drinks is not good customer service.

    This was the first time I had a bad experience at a Benihana. First our table (that we had a reservation for) wasn’t ready when we arrived. We waited over 15 minutes. After our soups/salads we waited 45 minutes until we saw a chef. We told a manager we had been waiting and she said they will be out soon. (Did not apologize) Our chef did an amazing job and noticed we were all out of beverages. He yelled out asking to find our server. He had to leave the grill 3 times to find someone to get us refills. By this point we were almost done with our food and didn’t have a drinks for the majority of the meal. When a server did come he told us that our server left for the night! It was 6pm…. Immediately after our chef left they were fast to come give us the bill but weren’t able to get us refills. The server mixed up our bill so I told him who ordered what and how to split the bill. He got it mixed up again. A manager finally comes over and I have to repeat again what each of us had and how to split it. She gets it wrong for a 3rd time. Finally on the 4th try she gives us the right tabs. She never once apologizes. After we leave I received a call from Benihana they lost the cash we used to pay for the dinner!!!! We will not be going back to this restaurant. Terrible service and management. The only good thing was the chef.

    Everything was fantastic....except for our waiter.......he was slow, seemed confused and forgot our drinks and never came back to clear plates or ask us if we wanted another drink. Our WONDERFUL chef had to call someone over to get our waiter so we could get our drinks. We had ordered them about 20 minutes prior and were already into 2 courses of our meal before we FINALLY got our drinks. He brought all our desert orders out EXCEPT for 1 which he didn't bring until an ENTIRE 1/2 hour later!!!!! Why wouldn't you bring all the deserts at the same time??? We were all sitting around waiting for 1 person to get there desert!

    8:15 reservation. Seated at 8:20. Got up at 8:40 to order a beer at the bar… Server showed up after I got back to table.. Service continued to be lackluster for the next 2 hours. Our teenage kids love it, or we would have left.

    Service in the bar was horrible. Waiting for a drink at the hibachi was long. $12 for a drink is ridiculous! Plus then you tax on top of that and tax everything else. I should not be forced to tip 20% unless service is awesome. I got charged $26 at the bar for 1 drink and a beer! I will not go back, you are way over priced for bland steak and bland fried rice. Huge disappointment and your 20% required tip and tax after tax is a scam!

    Really going down hill. They add a 20% service charge now. They say it's not gratuity but part of if is. Took 20 mins standing at the bar to get 2 captain cokes. That cost $32 and couldn't taste the captain. Then took 25 mins to pay the bill. Very frustrating experience but food tasted good

    My reservation was at 7:15pm. We didn’t get seated until 8pm. The price for the meal was a lot higher than the last time we ate there. The server was really nice. When we got the bill there was a n/a beverage tax for juice and a service charge. We was going to leave a tip until we looked at the bill and saw there was a service charge. We wasn’t aware that they figure out how much you should give for a tip. I thought it was totally wrong it was more than the cost of a kid’s meal. I will not be eating there anymore.

    Chef must be new because he didn’t cook fried rice all the way, and every steak was put on the plate rare when ordered medium or medium rare and we had to ask them to re-cook it. We had a 6:45 PM reservation and didn’t leave until 945 because it took forever to get us a chef and it was not busy. Usually we love it there, but this time was not good.

    The chef was funny and quite entertaining. We all really enjoyed the show he put on while preparing our meal which was outstanding. Was a little disappointed that the lunch menu wasn't available on the weekend and that there isn't an alternative for the shrimp as not everyone likes it or can eat it. Service was a little slow as well. Overall I would recommend it and definitely will be going back.

    We were there for over an hour before someone came to the table to cook and that's after we asked when they would be coming. We had two little kids with us who were hungary. The waiter was very good and got us the soup and salad right away and then we sat. The cooker at the table was a newbie as well. Took him forever to cook the food. He dropped knives like 2-3 times. I always go there for my birthday meal but not sure that I will next year. I know getting staff is tight but then they should cut down on how many tables they have running. Sorry I usually like Benihana's a lot. Hope they get better.

    Usually our experience at Benihana is supper good but I think for this experience we had a server who had to have been super new. He never came back to the table while the chef was cooking to see if we needed any refills on beverages, didn’t know if you could swap out items on the menu (we confirmed that we have been able to do it in the past), seemed very flighty and when he finally came back to the table since delivering the initial sodas, he asked what ice creams we wanted, wrote them down and still messed one of them up.

    Please work on the speeding up the start of your service. We had a 5:45 pm reservation. We arrived on time, but still had to wait to be seated at our table. We were seated at 6 pm. After we were seated, we still had to wait for staff to get our orders. Staff took our drink orders at 6:30 pm. Meal service probably started around 7 pm. Too much time just waiting around while thirsty and hungry.

    Always good food and a good time. I came in with a friend to use my $30 Birthday Coupon. I was shocked to find out that Benhihana is now adding a service charge to their bills, especially to a party of 2. I totally except a service charge with a party of 8 or more. I understand, but VERY surprised.

    Experience 10/10. Food 10/10. This here establishment harbored a variety of virtuous consumables. Exquisite, bourgeois provisions, handled with upmost expertise. Me, my associates, and much more formulated a stratagem to “break bread” at another banquet once more in the near future. Perhaps the aforementioned establishment, in Maple Grove. Absolutely outstanding performance.
