Service was fabulous. Good food and always filled water glasses. They remembered everything and treated our family like we were the only ones there even though packed.

We always enjoy the chefs cooking at Benihana and as usual the food was terrific! There were six of us eating and most had the steak, shrimp and chicken combo with the shrimp appetizer and fried rice.

Only negatives were it took forever to get refills, waitress was very rarely around. Also, most of the table had to eat with winter jackets on as there was... More
