My wife and I stopped in around 3PM. Their "Entertainment" was over so we were seated in a side room at a crappy little table. After a long wait, a server appeared to take our order. We ordered the combo dinners. It took 10 minutes...More

Had a birthday celebration for our son and the service was great. The food was also really good. Everyone enjoyed the chicken fried rice especially. It had a very nice flavor profile and didn't seem to be drowning in soy sauce as is often the...More

We had a Mother's Day lunch for 7. We were seated on time which was impressive considering the number of people there for Mother's Day. Good and service were both very good.

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.

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.
