    Ben, our chef, was fantastic!! He truly made the experience for us. Cindy was pleasant and attentive. We were fortunate enough to be sat at a table with really nice people. My only issue was a table near us when the mother smacked her son on the head. I know it’s not a restaurant issue per say maybe just clientele. Overall we had a wonderful evening.

    Everything was great except our cook…….she wasn’t entertaining at all like the other cooks that I’m use to having but our server made this 3 stars cus he was on point and he handled everything in a timely manner and we really didn’t care if we had to wait longer than expected hey it’s BENIHANAS 🤣 and I kind of didn’t like the fact that a service charge was added knowing that he had the split that between the cook and the buss boy knowing that the cook didn’t entertain us at all and was boring and didn’t deserve as much!!

    Disappointed! The service was sloppy. Food is dropped off with no interaction, just plopped on the table. The salad was literally drowing in dressing, yet no one asked why I didn't touch it. In fact, the server never spoke except when taking our order. And we had to flag someone down just to order another beverage with our dinner. The main course was very mediocre. Not the Benihana experience we were hoping for.

    My family and I go here all the time, however, today was an absolute disaster. The waitress was nice, however, she wasn’t around much, we had to search for her on several occasions for refills, and the food was awful! I have never had such bad tasting food in my experience there, and was frustrated that our service charge (her tip) was automatically included because we had 8 people, because she definitely do enough to deserve over $60 in a tip. I can’t even describe how bad the food was.
