    They seated us at a Hibachi table when all we wanted was Sushi and did not tell us that they were going to add a mandatory 20% tip.

    The greeter at the door was less than friendly. This was our first visit and he gave us no information about waiting in the lobby. Just told us sit here while he laughed and talked with a coworker. After 15 minutes we had to ask what the process was.

    The chef focused on entertaining and messed up the food. He used so much pepper that my mom was coughing while eating (it was her birthday). The rice was undercooked and I didn’t get my scallops with my ocean treasure. I am not impressed at all and felt money was wasted

    The food is delicious. Very accommodating to special requests. Service is great. Faster than other Hibachi, they were considerate of knowing that our table was going to the Bucks game. They provided extra attention to our daughters birthday and made her feel special.

    Table for 11. Quick to get to table but long wait for menus, then long wait to order drinks and then even longer to receive them. Then even longer to get any food. It seemed like our waitress was the only one there running 5 large tables. The whole process took about 3 hours until we left. 2 alcoholic beverages, 1 sushi, 2 Beni Hana trios and one added lobster tail with the 20% added gratuity = $280

    It's always fun to go to Benihana. The service is great, the food is delicious, and the show can't be beat. I ordered the filet mignon medium rare and the chef got it just right. We will be back.

    A full tray of drinks hit the floor a table away. While just an accident, there was no apology or follow up. Quite a few of us got wet. Needless to say, that was about the extent of our drink service. Had to get up twice to scout for another round. Also had to hunt for soy sauce and a dish for my sushi. The food was so-so, and we stunk the next day still. Ventilation was sub-par compared with other hibachi experiences. Unimpressive in a word - and that is before factoring the exuberant prices with automatic 20% gratuity imposed. That automatically lowers the bar. The cook was quite pleasant. Find another place to spend the evening. Save a shower and save a hundred bucks (at least).

    We had not been to a Benihana for years but always enjoyed it. We were worried when we got to the restaurant as it seemed deserted. But then we went upstairs where the dining was. Food was great.

    Lackluster hibachi chef, waitress messed up order and then messed up correcting order, food lacked seasoning; overall terrible experience. And to top it off, undeserved 20% gratuity added to all checks. Will definitely never return.

    Food is usually great, just needed a little more flavor (a little bland). We seem to get the newer server who needs more training to be a better server (though nice enough). Portions definitely keep getting smaller and smaller where it’s almost unaffordable.

    Food wasn’t as great as usual. Prices have increased making it less value for your money. We like Benihana experience and food used to be the best. We were a little disappointed with this past visit.

    Made a reservation thru Open Table. Got to the restaurant only to find out the city closed it down and the restaurant never reached out to those with reservations to let them know. Ended up driving around looking for another place to eat that wasn’t packed as we were under a time limit to get to a concert later that evening.

    The Japanese cook gave mostly all the food that we paid for to his cousin and cousin ladyfriend. I felt that if I'm paying a $300 bill for a family of 3then I need all my food I paid for. Very unprofessional and I felt I was cheated out of my food portions even the cook stated he's my cousin that's why he gets more! Not cool

    We had a very weird experience at the restaurant. We have been to hibachi restaurants numerous times and thought this would be fun for the kids to enjoy as they usually love them! Our chef could not speak English so he never engaged at all with us! Didn’t have fun with the cooking like they usually do…no egg in the hat…no I love you in rice…etc. The only thing he did was make a heart beat with the rice…and had we not been to another hibachi before like the other couple we sat with we would have not had a clue what he was doing…and after the whole meal was done and cleaned up did the onion train for 5 seconds. I ordered noodles instead of rice…didn’t get them after asking three times, until we told another worker and she came over and told him. He threw them on the grill for no joke 30 seconds with some soy sauce and plopped them on my plate. Still cold. And this is after the rest of the food was already done. Rice came out and was also plopped on our plate at least 30 mins before the meats…so cold…chicken done first…then some beef done…then the barely cooked zucchini and onions…then more beef on some plates…nothing but the meats were warm. Just very odd! My husband never got his spicy sauce added but we were charged for it…and there was an automatic gratuity for four people added also. We did have these things adjusted but wow just weird.

    Chef only knew two words and kept repeating them- (yum, yum). All of the steaks were over cooked in spite of the orders being repeated multiple times. They used two average sized boneless chicken breasts to make ten orders of chicken fried rice, needless to say there wasn't much chicken especially for $6/order. The waitress spoke too fast and was very hard to understand, and she didn't listen to the customers anyway. Most annoying was they added a 20% gratuity to our bill for a party of four and without telling us!! If I had an option, I would've given a 10% gratuity and even that was too generous. Won't be back and recommend others stay away too.

    Our server was always in a hurry. She didn't clear dishes at end of meal as well. Perhaps she was at the end of her shift. We were there celebrating birthday, and made us purchase beverages. Apparently this is new to the birthday club certificates. The chef who cooked our food was amazing and the food was amazing as well.
