We arrived at 9:15pm on a Sunday night to find no space available. We waited 45 minutes and they seated us at 10pm. Food was delicious and service was good. Our server was friendly and entertaining.

This is the second time our friends have taken us to this location when we've visited from out of town. It did not disappoint! We sat at the sushi bar as we did previously. The sushi chefs are amazing, especially Chao (spelling?)... he took requests and served us the most delicious creations (rolls, nigiri, cones)! Such a humble man, very... More

This place 'used to be' a great place for dinner. Now it's a cold generic attitude, reservations ignored to suit the front desk staff 'kids'. Food was just ok, but if you drown it with their (4) sauces you'll be ok. They only positive was the Bar Staff! Those guys were the evenings heroes! Awesome drinks and warm cheerful personalities.

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.
