This was a birthday celebration for my granddaughter. She and her two siblings enjoyed the antics of the "chef". Lots of attention and entertainment. The food was okay but definitely not world class. All in all, worth a try.

We have visited this Benihana a few times before and never had any real issues. The chef prepares the meal in front of you on the flat top and usually puts on a small show. Our chef this time seemed to only want to do the bare minimum (Make little jokes about butter being ice cream, flip shrimp tails into... More

Food was not that great and the entertainment was mediocre at best. Don't waste your time. You are rushed to your table with other people and rushed out after you eat!

I usually love Benihanas, though on this lunch visit, found the food entirely too salty (and I am one that overloafs french fries with salt). I suspect (and hope) that this was chef dependent, though caution those that need to keep their salt levels in check tk provide feedback to the chef. My mistake was not telling the chef to... More

It was my first time but I wasn't too impressed right off the bat. The inside decor was outdated and didn't seem really clean at all. The food is overpriced but I suppose you pay for the experience.

If you want to try a fun place this is it. They seat 10 at a table. If you go with 2 expect to share a table. While that may scare some, remember the table is around the grill. Not a traditional table. They take your order then one of their chefs come out and make your meal in front... More

We went for lunch mid week in October, but the wait for a at-table chef was 45 minutes and we decided to skip the wait and eat in the regular dining room. We all had lunch special combination plates and the shrimp, chicken and steak were done well (the steak was medium-rare when we ordered rare), fried rice was delicious... More

Alway love Hitachi. So cool to watch them cook it in front of you. Great chef and service. I had the spicy Hitachi chicken, so good. Wife had the sushi plater and she said it was great. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

After going to this location for over 30 years, I have become so sad that the true, original Japanese culture has been lost! The waiters and management goof around, have no honor, and seem to care less about quality and customer service. The take-out is especially poor, and don't expect to get the same amounts of food when you get... More
