The food off the grill was outstanding: my wife and I each had the surf and turf. The seafood was especially garlicky and buttery. I envied her fried rice once I saw it prepared. The stagecraft of the chef was very entertaining as well.

Love this place so much. Food is fantastic and the entertainment from the chef's is second to none. Only let down was that the waitress service was slow and our Rice was forgotten until we reminded them. I hope this was a one off as I would hate to stop coming to this fabulous restaurant..

Went on a Monday night as it was 1/2 price food was nice but lacked the atmosphere of other Benihana. If I had gone on an other day I would have found the price too much for what we had. Down side service was calculated on the full price not the actual price and 1/2 price is October only
