Benihana is a pretty standard hibachi grill. Nothing too special. Food is good but the restaurant isn't very clean and the bar is seriously lacking and really not very dirty. Not a good place to hang out before your table is ready.

The servers were over worked..not enough to go around thus very slow service. The food was acceptable, nothing to write home about.

Stopped in without reservations on a Wednesday night and got seated quickly. The service was friendly and welcoming. The soup and salad were well prepared and tasty. The cooking was entertaining and the food was delicious.

I couldn't disagree more with the negative reviews that I see here. We just came for the first time and had a great experience. Most hibachi places are all the same... same food, same routine, same atmosphere. The food was well prepared, and it felt like we were getting a real recipe... not just a bunch of food thrown on...

We decided on dinner at Benihana. Roy was our cook... I have been to several Hibachi grills and several Benihana locations. .but this was the best. Roy was fun and the food was amazing. Whenever I visit this location, I'll definitely ask for Roy.

Had reservations for party of 12. Waited about 15 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, but we mingled in the bar area and had a drink. The staff was amazing, very attentive and made sure beverages were filled. The chef was somewhat amusing, but mostly seemed overwhelmed while cooking. My only complaint is that the food had no...

Had a nice lunch last Saturday for my son's birthday. The food was excellent. Our chef made a delicious chicken fried rice and cooked all food to perfection. He was funny and took care of making sure we all got the food cooked to our liking. The wait service was great as well. Even after so many years of visiting... More
