I love this place. Everything about it is great! The food is mostly good, sometimes bland depending on the chef. The show at the table is decent. My only complaint is they are really expensive.

We have become big fans of hibachi since our daughter fell in love with it. So we go quite often. Kids love the show. The salad and soup were ok. Nothing to write home about. The edamame was over cooked and dry. They do a very limited show compared to others. Chef had limited (read: no) personality. Besides the "volcano"... More

It has been a while since we have dined in a Benihana restaurant, that it was a pleasant feeling to be sitting in front of the grill. The servers have been pretty attentive to us upon seating until the end. The chef was pretty much spot on, asking each one of us for individual preference and inclinations. Though I noticed... More

We come every year for our birthday celebration and have never been disappointed.... until today. We were sat at a table with Scruffy McBeardson and his gf. They took our order promptly and the chef came out with his Magical Cart of Wonders. The chef proceeded to cook as if he was at home in his kitchen. Now to be... More

My wife and I and another couple recently had dinner at Benihana and we were very please with the service, quality and quantity of food. Our waiter was very attentive. And of course we enjoyed our chef preparing our goof. He was very good. Only one drawback was the background noise which was pretty loud when we first sat down.... More

Went there last night 6-13-15 for dinner. This restaurant was one of our friends wishes for his bucket list. He never ate there before and wanted to try it. We went, table not ready yet and had a drink at the bar. A vodka tonic and two sangria's. Very small glasses, mostly ice. They were not bad until I paid... More

I thought the whole deal about going to Benihana was the 'show' the chefs put on while preparing your food. I was pretty disappointed in realizing the 'show' is only at the very beginning for a few seconds and then a few seconds more when he did the 'volcano'; that was it. Which makes the price a bit high if... More

Six of us had dinner. The service was good. The sushi and our dinner was very good. Cocktails were kind of expensive. Overall the place is very expensive for what you get. It cost us approximately $100 per person with cocktails appetizer and dinner.
