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.

For our party of 5 we had 7:00 reservations. We were served our soup at 8:00, which was cold. At 8:30 we were served our salad. By 9:00 we had lost our patience. The chef came to our table at 9:00 and was smart enough to see that we had lost our interest in a 'show'. But there was little... More

I attended with 5 co-workers. We were thoroughly entertained and had the best server! One of our group had never been to Benihana or a Japanese steakhouse. He was also from Sweeden. He had the best time ever! Dinner and a show! A fantastic time was had by all!

We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. The place was freezing cold. Others were complaining about the cold. The Food was average and overpriced. The bill was $90 for two including one drink each and tip. Probably will not go back.

Thank Armando O

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.
