    It's been almost three years since I'd been to Benihana, & a few things have changed which were a surprise. The website has a menu, but no prices. This was scary-but I figured that the prices would be on the menu at the restaurant. My boyfriend was taking me out for my birthday, and I had $30 off, & in the past covered one meal, anyway. We ordered off the menu I had previously & there were no prices on the menu, either. The meals used to be in the $25-35. range. They said they came with soup, salad, veggie and shrimp appetizer, and fried or white rice. When they took our orders they asked if we wanted the chicken-fried or white rice, and we both chose fried. Everything was really good, the servers and chef were great, but I wish they had mentioned that the fried rice cost extra, when it was listed as part of the meal. There were 3 parties at our table & they asked if there were any birthdays, & there were 3, including mine. When we were done eating, they asked each of the birthday people of they wanted to add ice cream. I asked if it came with the birthday dinner, and then was told it didn't anymore, so I said no. I asked if they were going to take my birthday coupon, and then the waiter said sure. Nobody else spoke up, so maybe they didn't have one. When they brought our bill, it was over $100.00! Then we looked at it, and it was the wrong bill, which we told the waiter when he came back for payment. When we got the right bill was when we saw we were charged for 2 orders of fried rice, in addition to our meals and one drink each. After my $30 off coupn, it still came to $87.00 before tip! I felt bad, cause it was more than I wanted or expected to spend. They no longer take photos, either. I don't think I'd go there again. It's fun, and good food, but there are many places I haven't been, and to not have prices on the menu, it's hard for people on a budget. At least they could take our photo and make it available to download! Not as fun as it used to be...

    From the very beginning the receptionist was cold and unwelcoming. When we went to check in she told us our reservation was canceled and we would need to come back. She didn't realize it was a other Eric for another time and gave a fake apology. The first server was nice and told us he was only helping because our real server was on break. Things started to go down hill when he told we were 5th in-line for a chef and we would be waiting 40min- 1hr. No clue why they didn't inform us that from the beginning but whatever. Chef comes and basically said I'll just cook the food and skip the show since you guys are hungry which was okay because we really were. The food was good and no problem with the chef but the server came back and was so rude to everyone. He only came by once. The real issue was when we had to pay. We had two bday coupons because the website clearly states that is okay we would just need to split the check. However, since the first server wasn't our server I never got the chance to tell him about the coupons. In front of everyone he gets in an argument with me about how they can't take two coupons and even if they could it wouldn't apply because we would need to spend over $30....the bill was $150. He then comes at me that we bought alcohol when the two cocktails we bought were 14...that's $28 total. The entree alone was $35.7 each which was enough. I told him all this and with attitude he said he would need to go change it and it would take 15 min... he did all he could to not give us the discount when the manager was so relaxed and did it no problem. It was the simplest thing turned into an argument because he was too lazy to do the extra step. He also gave attitude to the couple next to us who were in the same situation as us. Food was good but service was horrible. Never experienced benihana like this.

    The Chef made our experience great with his Banter and talk. The only thing I didn’t like was it was my moms bday dinner and we had reservations for 7:30 but the food didn’t begin to start cooking until 8:30 and it wasn’t until 9am that we finally had our meal.

    The food is great. They are so understaffed these days/months that a dinner experience of three plus hours begs the question if it is worth the time. While the show, put on by the chefs, is entertaining, the long wait for them to arrive at the table and afterwards just for the dessert and the check is not.

    My husband and I love it at Benihana! No matter how many times we've gone, we always look forward to the show that is put on for us by our chef that day. For us, the food is always delicious, but there's no point in going if you aren't getting some entertainment with your meal. Our favorites are the Benihana salad, the chicken fried rice and the mustard sauce but everything is so delicious!

    Our particular Hibachi cook did not have much the personality we usually enjoy at Benihanas but the food was great. The kids were a bit disappointed that he dis not interact much with us at all. But we had fun!

    Our waiter ruined our experience. We have gone here many, many times over the last 25+ years. We look forward to it being the same. It was my 71 year old husband's birthday. He never asked if there were any special occasions. No birthday song. No ice cream offered to anyone at our table at the end of the meal. We sat there 20 minutes waiting for him to come back after he got our credit cards and ran them. The whole table full of us waited twenty minutes and he never came back to get our ice cream orders. He brought salads and didn't offer us forks so my husband had to get the forks and pass the out to everyone. We had a dismal experience the last time. Doubt we will be back until there is new management.

    The food was good but the cook was not connecting with the customers. We are used to the cooks being entertaining while fixing the food. He did not talk or asked about what we are celebrating. His mission was strictly to cook the food. We noticed prior to serving our table he was very energectic with the table before us. So we had no clue why he shut down on us. Usually we thought the entertainment of the cooks were part of what we were paying for that is why we seat in that area. So you see we were very uncomfortable. I think we will give Benihana a break.

    Food was very good, but as usual the steak was just ok. we ordered the filet mignon and lobster and the filet was ok not great. I find that pretty normal at this restaurant. Would be nice if they purchased higher quality red meat.

    This was quite possibly the worst restaurant experience of my lifetime. We arrived on time for our 5:30 reservation and were not seated for over 20 minutes. After being seated we had to ask for new plates because they were covered in a sticky/ soapy residue. Another 20 minutes later we finally received our first drink order (after personally going to the bar to see what the hold up was). By 6:30 our soup and salad finally arrived, a full hour after our reservation. We informed the hostess we had to leave at 7:15 for an event and she said should would send then chef out immediately. The chef finally came to our table at 6:50 to let us know there is no chance we have our food before 7:15. We ended up deciding to leave and go to a drive through instead. What a waste of an hour and forty five minutes of my life. The hostess said the reason for the wait for serious understaffing. My question was why would you take reservations that you do not have the capacity for?? I would be shocked to ever find myself back at this Benihana, and would recommend anyone who does go to plan for at least a 3 hour dinner.

    Had a reservation at 6:15 pm and didn't even get seating till 6:45. Our waitress completely put in our order incorrectly. Our chef "Santi" was amazing, but the rest of the service was terrible. My fiancé and i go regularly and this past year they are getting worse and worse, no longer going to San Diego location!

    The Chef and Server were very good. The food was good, price seemed high, but I guess that’s to be expected not days ($40-$60 per person). The restaurant looks the same as it did in the 1980’s, absolutely no money invested in up keep or renovation. The place was filthy, bathroom(s) were both horrible. My wife mentioned the condition to the hostess, and all she said “ok” with no follow action, asked to speak with management but received no reply. * I observed a server exiting a bathroom stall and exiting without washing his hands, unfortunately it was just before we left, otherwise I would have left before eating.

    Disappointed that I didn’t find out until we arrived that I couldn’t use the gift card I was sent by them for my birthday. You really need to make it more clear that the only days they can be used are M-Th. Also that it needs to be printed off and brought in with you. I just assumed that all that I would need to do was hit the “ activate now” button when I arrived for our reservation. Unfortunately I had to send up paying for my own meal which I was not expecting or could really afford.

    We love the food here, and because we are all introverts, it’s nice to have the entertainment of the cooking right in front of us to break up the silence. There are only three of us this Thanksgiving, so we went non-traditional and it was really lovely.

    This was our first visit to the SD Benihanas. My husband and I arrived early before our family to have a cocktail. Our server was very slow to come to our table . We ask her for an appetizer menu which she did bring back to us, but after 35 minutes she NEVER returned to take our order?? Our guests arrived and we were ushered to our dining table. When the cook showed up at 7 pm ( our reservation for 6) ?? When the food came out ( sushi) and cooked food our 6 year old guest was last to received steamed rice?? He only was served when we asked twice and began to cry ,as EVERYONE had their food. Lastly, the drink server wanted paid before she brought out our desserts! ( treated like we would not pay the bill!!) we are seniors and upper middle class! We had a 500.00 tab yet treated VERY POORLY, We would NEVER return to the SD Benihanas.

    The quality of the food here is still amazing after so many years. I also really appreciate the staff for being open and available during Thanksgiving so I could treat my parents. The facility itself could benefit from more cleanliness and organization. There was a broom and dustpan next to where my mom was sitting, and we had to ask the server to remove it. Almost everything liquid, from our cups of water, to soup, to sauce dishes, were messy and dripping all over the place. Our chef seemed a bit nervous or overwhelmed while cooking, and the meat was excellent but our veggies tasted slightly burnt yet undercooked. Despite all of this our server was very efficient and attentive, and the quality of our chicken and seafood was excellent. Might come back, not sure yet.

    This was not a good experience. Probably the worst I’ve ever had at Benihana. The chef was not good. The sever was not good. Seating was terrible. The chef did not have enough rice to fill my bowl all the way. He told me that if I asked for extra garlic butter and soy sauce, the rice would shrink. I guess I had a case of shrinking rice. Better luck next time!

    Our 6-course meal orders comes with tea and ice cream. Our waiter already gave us the check/bill without asking us. We have to ask him if they come with our order - only then he asked us what flavors we wanted. Value is not that good either. Sorry, I can recommend better restaurants to my friends.
