We had reservations and arrived a few minutes early to find a very crowded restaurant. There were at least 6 other parties that exchanged words with the hostess about the unacceptably long wait and then left. After an hour and a half we left. Benihana - get over the idea of increasing bar revenue by making me wait 2 hours... More

Pretty expensive and be prepared to wait a bit.... But food is yummy. Show is fun for kids, but if you go more than once as an adult, it's....same old thing.

Rocked up on a weeknight without reservations, and we were seated after a quick wait at the bar. The meats and seafood were fresh and well (also entertainingly) prepared by our server/cook, and their garlic chicken rice wasn't too bad either. The sashimi and sushi were alright. Great place to wind down with colleagues after a day of work.

This is a favorite lunch spot for meeting friends. I enjoy their chicken dishes and it always is fresh.

I give this place a 4 start only because of the hostess. We came to celebrate my husband's birthday. We made reservations a week in advance. When we got there, the hostess was very rude. She seem soooooo unhappy. She was not welcoming at all and she looked so unhappy. However, our server was very sweet. Her name is Sheeva... More

I have been going to Benihana's for years! It's a must to try the Hibachi style at least one time, even though it's expensive! Sign up online and receive your $30 coupon for your birthday!

I have to agree with another reviewer. This Benihana's food quality has gone down. We stopped in for lunch and were seated quickly. It took a bit for our Server to come over too us, even though there were Severs standing around. When she arrived she was pleasant and quickly took our drink and meal order. I had a chicken... More

We enjoyed a tasty meal here to celebrate my wife's birthday. I had the salmon with avocado tartare sauce and my wife had the seafood combo; both were very, very good and we enjoyed them. Everything was cooked just about right, which is tough to accomplish with an audience as well as the high heat and diced food. And the... More

Benihana is a great family restaurant where the kids (and everyone) can watch the chefs cook your food right before your eyes. What fantastic showmanship these folks display. We have never had a bad meal here, plus they have a birthday club where they will send you a birthday coupon via email.
