Not a good experience. We were seated at a table in the back and as we're walking to out table there were a couple portable air conditioners...not a good sign. It was hot and once the cooking started it got much warmer. It took almost an hour for out cook to show up. His prep cart was missing alot stuff and he kept need to return to the kitchen to get them. He was great and did the best he could with the terrible steak he had to work with. In this covid world we did share a table with another couple they were 2 chairs between but not close to being 6ft apart. At one point the husband took a pice of meat off his fork and put it back on the grill where all the food was cooking. A real jerk move and I hope he does not have covid. That was a 2nd time we should have walked out. But it was my wife's birthday so I just kept it too my self. I noted on the reservation that it was her birthday and told the waitress when we arrived. But after dinner taking 2 hours they must have forgotten, not one person told her happy birthday. Overall a very disappointing experience.

They didn’t have Yum Yum sauce. Instead some nasty mustard sauce. We were disappointed, but the food was good.

A different experience this year. While they were alternating tables & seating fewer to a table, the noise level was still high. Food was good as usual. I love Hibachi but the little show they put on seems like it is more geared to first-timers or kids. I do enjoy watching them cook the food though & definitely like the Hibachi style. Overall, it was still good, food is consistently good & service is good too.

Service was extremely slow. Food was good but cook was very heavy handed on the pepper. Cook wasn't into it which made the entire table pretty dull.

My family and I typically love to come to Benihana’s. However this experience was not enjoyable. There were six people sitting at my table and I expressed concern which went unaddressed. The six feet distance requirement needs to be strictly enforced. We are entrusting you with our health.

In addition, my order was messed up several times which was other source of frustration. Really bad experience and this was my first time going out to eat since early March 2020.

Food was good would like to see better portions sizes you get larger portions for less prices at some area competitors with good food as well but overall was satisfied with the quality of service and taste of food .

We had originally had a 9pm reservation but arrived WAY earlier and they were able to accommodate us! That was very nice of them as they were busy we understood if we had to wait. Our waitress once we sat down was very attentive and friendly! The chef was equally friendly and so energetic! He made the experience fun and enjoyable for a night out. We enjoyed our first time back in a while and look forward to the next time we go!

Wow! is the best descriptor I can give this location after my birthday lunch yesterday. My chef was T'al (spelling?) and he was superb! Flawless meal! My server was attentive and friendly and it was such a joy from beginning to end. Thank you, Benihana, for helping to make my special day so special, indeed!

Perfect choice for a celebration. Entertaining experience and excellent food quality. Be prepared to spend around $30-40 per person without alcohol. They did a great job with safety precautions.
