We have been coming to Benihana for years and have began to see it decline. This last experience may just our last. To start off they over packed the table. My 2 yrs old was in a seat (we put in for 4 people) but to accommodate another group my son lost his spot and sat on my lap of... More

The staff was very nice! It is always good to be able to see the cool prepare your food in a fun way. Other than that it was good. Price is a bit higher but you can share within a couple or group. Nothing disappointing But nothing thrilling.

My son wanted to come here for dinner. I would suggest making a reservation. Our chef was alittle lackluster compared to the table next to us, but he was still entertaining. Food is pretty good, I was FULL (and I can eat lol) I saw a lot of younger kids, they seemed entertained to.

This was my first time at a Benihana. We chose the teppanyaki table which is upstairs. This is a crowded floor. Tables are pretty close together. They weren't all on but it got really smokey. I half joked that if we had to evacuate really quickly, there would be an issue...cue nervous laughter. Anyway, nice variety on the menu. Prices... More

As with most Hitachi style restaurants your experience is greatly influenced by the skill of the chef. "Jo" is not only fabulously skilled in the art of the Hitachi Style cooking, he was also hysterically entertaining. With that being said, the food is good. I would not say the best, certainly not authentic LOL. There are good flavor combinations and... More

I love this restaurant! The food is amazing, and they have the BEST chicken fried rice. The waiters and chiefs are also great. We went as a group to celebrate a birthday on my most recent visit and they took a photo for us on their digital camera, and printed it to give to us before we left. Going for... More

Stopped in for the Christmas special - they were able to seat us early despite being about an hour ahead of our reservation. Our Chef was Tommy. Funny and personable. I'm always a little reserved about hitting up Benihana for the price point but when entertaining a group the floor show always makes up for pricier ticket. Overall it was... More
