Although we live nearby, this was the first time we had tried this Benihana. It always seems to be packed, and the night we dined was no exception. Although we had reservations, we waited a full 30 minutes before we were taken to a table, and another 10 minutes before a waitress came to take our drink orders. The restaurant... More

Have been to several Benihana restaurants before. This one was awful. The restaurant staff were clueless. The chef didn't know what he was doing. The food was poor - some of it inedible. A shame, as this place used to be great. Terrible experience

My kids love Benihana. I was a little disappointed with the experience. The front desk was quite unfriendly, Natalia, our server, was great but she was so busy (seemed restaurant was under-staffed), we hardly saw her. Food was fine.
