Food was great if not on the pricey side. The shrimp wasn't very flavorful, but scallops were great. Enjoyed our cook who was friendly and entertaining. The Mojito was perfect. Would come again, but try a different meal.

This was my first time dining at Benihana, and it will not be my last. Benny, our teppanyaki chef (Yes, Benny at Benihana) was very entertaining, the food was excellent, and dinner was a great value. The fried rice was quite literally the best any of us has ever tasted. We were still talking about it two days later. I... More

My friend brought me here for my birthday after dining here herself with her work crowd. She wanted me to experience the fun. It really is a unique dining experience and I was able to try a lot things I'd never tasted before and might not have otherwise ever chosen. It was a fun afternoon and would eat here again.

Started Lunch with a cocktail. Gin and Tonic for me, a Manhattan for the wife. The waitress took the drink order immediately after we got seated. I got the Gin and Tonic within 5 to 10 min...but the Manhattan was delayed. Waitress said the "bartender" was new and didn't know how to make it...had to check to see what was... More

We had 6:30 pm dinner reservations on a Saturday night. There were 7 in our party. Ambience is lively, noisy and fun. We had an 8 year old who loved the chef antics... Flipping shrimp tails into his hat, creating a flaming volcano with an onion. We go here once or twice a year. Next time we will reserve one... More

I think the prices and service is good - waitress could be more attentive. Chefs were talented cooking tool acrobats and cooks. Food is just ok but it seems they cater to tourists with less regard for food ingrdient quality and more concern on pricing.

All seafood lovers should eat at Benihana's often. Not only that the food you order is cooked right there infront of your eyes, you'll enjoy watching the sushi chef skillful knife throwing in the air.

I've been to other teppanyaki restaurants and I must say I've had better experiences. The food and show aspect was pretty standard, fried rice heart, onion tower, etc. the menu has more choices than other places I've been which is nice. I had the Rocky's special which was chicken and steak which was pretty tasty. My experience at Benihana was... More

Benihana ... either nationwide or possibly just at the Anaheim location ... stopped accepting reservations in mid-January 2016. When we showed up on a Thursday evening, we were informed the estimated wait time was 60 to 75 minutes. After waiting approximately an hour, we were seated, though it took another 30 minutes or so for the chef to appear. The... More

Went there twice on this trip - food fantastic as always. Great show too. You can't reserve a table now so be warned! Can't wait to go back next year.
