The food was god and entertainment was awesome. It is a longer wait than normal but it was a Saturday night. Expect to smell like food if you are planning on going anywhere after. Over all, a fun experience and good food.

We were hit with a very cold atmosphere in two ways, the wait staff and the temperature of the room. No one did anything about the temperature being to cold and the food was way overpriced.

Has ownership changed at your restaurant. Your place is in dire need of a makeover. Mold all around your air vents. Was there Sunday nite will not be back. And we have been going to a Benihana all over the states and knew Rocky. years ago. It's definitely not up to his standards

Not something I know but I do know the place is managed very poorly and in need of a major facelift.

Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. And don’t forget our delicious sushi appetizers, including fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all made with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
