This location is right on the canal which leaves a pretty dining experience. It was busy but the food was great and service was friendly.

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.
