Benihana is a nice venue for large parties and special occasions they over 15 grill tables plan to wait once you arrive they will generally only seat when everyone has arrived. We were a party of 2 and had to wait until a party of 5 came before we were seated. Like most Japanese Steak house they atmosphere is fun and festive once your cook arrives, prior to your cook arriving you will ha e the soup and salad which is excellent precursor to the main meal. The have an extensive selection of sushi and sashimi as appetizers. The cook will entertain you with tricks and knive skills the food overall is decent not great it lack more depth in flavoring but this is somewhat to be expect with quick grill food. The fish and steaks were fresh but you will not get great flavor with the quick cook method but it is entertaining and great for those special occasions were you are looking for more than just a meal

We had a reservation and were seated quickly. Atmosphere was good, not too busy. Drink orders were taken, alcoholic drinks took longer than expected to arrive. Dinner orders were taken and the chef was out in a reasonable amount of time. The "show" the chef put on was nothing too impressive. The Hibachi steak was not as good as other Hibachi grills. The seasoning on the other vegetables was not as good either. I would look around at another place if you really want a good Hibachi grill experience.

I had a birthday coupon so we went for an early dinner. They sat us with a family of six at a cooking table for eight. The service was very slow but congenial throughout the meal. The chef went through the typical hibachi schtick like he was half asleep--barely looked up and seemed disinterested. The food was as expected--fine but nothing special. We had been there once before and the portions seem to have gotten smaller. The server put our check on the other family's bill and it took a while to get it straightened out. I was very happy I had a coupon; the service and food is not worth the high prices.

My daughter and her friends went to Benihana for a special dinner before homecoming and won't make that mistake again. They had a reservation for 7:30 pm and didn't have a cook come to them until 9 pm. Reservations mean nothing apparently. When we picked the group up and asked the manager why it all took so long he blamed the kids for getting seated on time and for talking to others in the restaurant. Tell the truth. These kids didn't know anyone there. Basically, the manager was making excuses for poor service. Good thing the food was good.

This place is a substandard Japanese steakhouse. The chef was not entertaining and obviously didn't know how to cook most of the food. They up charge for items you get standard at other restaurants. Additionally it was very expensive. Worst tasting and high priced! 2 double negatives!!!! Will never go back!
