I had a hibachi lunch special, $15 for steak and scallop combo, comes with soup or salad. It's pretty good for the price and it tastes good too. Our chef that cook in front of us did a pretty good job. Overall I would recommend this place.

Went on a Wednesday night, not busy at all which was good. I have gone to plenty of other Teppanyaki places before and they are all the same. I guess I expected Benihana to be on a different level but it wasn't. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine place but it's really just a name. Tips: Don't get the... More

We've been here at least half a dozen times because the grand kids like the hibachi show. But troublesome negatives never get fixed. The first is wait time. Despite making a reservation don't be surprised if you have to wait. And there are usually a fair amount of other people waiting -- in tight and uncomfortable conditions. Second is ventilation....

This is my 2nd visit to Benihana and both times despite booking we have been made to wait at least 30-40 minutes past booking time for our table - so I don't think this is a mistake - they deliberately OVER-BOOK. Although we enjoy the hibachi cooking, its a lot of fun, and the food is pretty good, the service... More

Wow. I have been going to this restaurant since it opened. I love the hibachi experience and these guys used to be awesome at it. So many things went wrong with our meal. Everything was completely over cooked . Our lobsters were cooked to the point they tasted like rubber. Our steak likewise. The salad had way too much dressing.... More

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.

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
