Visited Benihana for a late appetizer, cocktail date. Walked in the restaurant and the two employees at the hostess stand completely ignored us. We finally just awkwardly walked to the bar. We sat at a high top table and literally had to "flag" down our waitress. We ordered two longislands', two Benihana Tangy Ginger Salads and a spicy tuna roll.... More

We came here for my son's birthday. He's only 11. This was the place he requested. Mostly, because of the show and the chefs are wonderful. The food was amazing. Service amazing. Such a nice atmosphere.

I have lived in Alaska for 6 years and have driven by Benihanas hundreds of times but never went. My husband took me there on date to try something new. I don't like sushi, but my husband tried it and thought it was great. Our server, Treyvon, was excellent. I had their shrimp and fried rice, it was absolutely delicious.

We were coming back from the walking trail - Knowles, and found this Japanese place by surprise and we loved what we found. Hibachi was great - there was a bit of misunderstand on my order, but largely it was okay. Also, they made a mistake in the bill because of the misunderstanding between server and the chef on the...
