This was my first time to a Benihana. I went with friends that have been there before and we started with the happy hour drinks and small plates - Bar staff was friendly and made the environment fun and light. After 90 minutes of drinks we moved over to Hibachi , the staff took care of our every need and... More

It been a while since I dined at Benihana (5 years) and my husband and I were in the area for business. We decided to eat here last night, despite some of the negative reviews I have been reading here. Upon arrival, we were immediate hosted and seated. Our waiter, Shawn, immediate assisted us with menu questions and advice and... More

After the salad & soup, the main courses were prepared in the appropriate Japanese style...ALL in ALL, I was not motivated, BUT here is the MAIN concern: The floors through-out are sloppy and unkept..and especially the mens...

Went there for lunch yesterday and realized that you're not getting the same menu board. The entrées are higher pricing at lunchtime believe it or not with less portions. Also, I was told by the manager, Chris, the reason why the food was not piping hot was because after they cut the meat that they have to let it sit.... More

Our family enjoyed a birthday celebration here and the grandkids loved the showmanship displayed by the chef at the table especially the cutting of shrimp tails and having them caught in his shirt pocket. This is a grand place for families to celebrate something special. Gene P Coplay PA

The food here is good but nothing that really knocked my socks off. I suggest having the lunch boat special or doing hibachi. Although you can find much better hibachi presentations else where the hibachi food is good. I wish this place had a more open lay out and maybe even outdoor seating. Decent chain would come back but not... More

My two daughters and I had dinner here one night. The food was good and the chef was entertaining, even for two teenagers. The kids raved about the sushi and my yakisoba was good and was a generous portion. Everything was pretty on par with what you'd expect at a place like this - showmanship, typical Japanese steakhouse fare, and... More

Decent presentation yet not much of an effort from the chef. Floors were dirty and sticky. Soup was lousy, salad dressing was atrocious. First time eating at a Benihana and was not impressed...

We went there last night for my wife's birthday celebration dinner. Our server, Cierra, was never around when we needed her.

I came here for lunch for the singular reason of adding this restaurant to my photo collection, I liked the fact that they have several lunch specials option and that the prices were around just 10 bucks, so I ordered the 10.00 chicken express lunch which came with fried rice and sautéed vegetables, and their onion soup broth....the fried rice...

Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
