My kids are very picky eaters and because the chef made cooking fun, they were interested in trying shrimp for the first time. The chefs are very entertaining and the food is tasty.

I eat here about once or twice a year (a little too pricey for me to be a regular here). Every time I've gone, the group I was with was entertained by the cook, and the food was very good. If you are going there...More

Nice place for an entertaining group experience, not so much on a solo. The food was good, although I clearly got one of the less experienced chefs. But, hey, they need to practice too, so I did not mind.

Second time to this restaurant. Food is excellent and tasty! The steak was very well prepared and the fried rice was the best!

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. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. .
