Be careful when you get your check at the end of the night. Look for items ordered that prices are higher than what menu shows, look for items added to bill that you never ordered or got, and look for items ordered that you actually never got. If your server is not willing or able to correct the bill, speak... More

We really wanted to go at this restaurant, and we had a terrible moment. First of all, the hostess wasn't that sweet and smiley, she was rushing us. When we were finally sitting at the table, we've waited for about an hour and a half for our meal. The cook finally arrived, zero smile, not even a hello from him...... More

I've been here twice in the same month with a group of friends. The first time it was excellent from start to finish. Our chef was highly entertaining and all the dishes he cooked were perfect so we came back for more! On our second visit, our chef was good however the dishes weren't as tasty this time. Although they... More

Dinner was well performed by a Japanese trained chef. The dinner started with soup and salad then a shrimp appetizer. The wine and drinks were good. We ordered Colossal Shrimp with a side of Scallops with extra garlic, butter and lemon. I had steamed brown rice. The vegetables were good and well seasoned and cooked well. The view of the... More

I had some service issues this time around which is not the norm. I was really disappointed because it was my birthday. Normally the food is really good and overall I enjoy coming here. The cooks are very entertaining. Management acknowledged our service concerns and compensated us to our satisfaction. I have been to restaurants before where its a fight... More

Enjoyed lunch at this Benihanas with some friends. I learned the secret of Benihanas....don't go at dinner, but instead go at lunchtime where they all tend to be much less crowded. At dinner, they cram you in like sardines and people can get rather pushy and rude. At lunch, you may even have a table to yourself, but may need... More

Great for groups or families celebrating an event. Food is average but the experience was fun. Each chef brings his or her own brand of entertainment to the table.

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. And don’t forget our delicious sushi appetizers, including fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all made with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
