Service was good, food was cooked well, but not worth the price we paid. We arrived early so we waited at the bar for our table. Two bottled beers and one iced tea. Bar tab was 15.00. Four dollars for iced tea? Really?

Have been a big fan of Benihana for years and have visited restaurants all over the country. This was our first visit to the Scottsdale location and wow such a disappointment. We knew we were in trouble when it took 20 min just to have our drink order taken. We had to ask for side dishes that were ordered but... More

We had a birthday party and it was huge success! We had steak, shrimp, salmon, noodles, lobster, fried rice, green tea ice cream etc. Everything was fantastic and lots of food. Highly recommended! I would definitely go back.

I was a visitor from England. I had eaten at a Benihana about 20 years ago and thought my friends would enjoy the experience. It was a huge disappointment. It was really down market . The entrance and reception were dirty. Debris on the carpet which obviously needed vacuuming, cleaning or ,better still, replacing. Litter outside. Only the nice staff... More

Sushi is good, but the Tepanyaki is the reason to come here. There are 2 different chefs that we have had is the last 6 months. Both were fun and entertaining. I would definately recommend coming for a special occasion and watching an entertaining show from a chef.

Went last night for grand daughters Sweet 16 party. Nice relaxed happy atmosphere. Had two side by side oven top tables, each with own chef. Chefs were entertaining, friendly a knew how to cook their type of cuisine. Food was very tasty with numerous choices and nicely portioned. A good choice for a special family affair.

I had my $30 birthday dinner, compliments of Benihana's Chef Table club and the meal was exceptional; I had the Chateaubriand and it was marvelous, while my husband had the Surf Side. No complaints other than one of the couples seated at the table were strange but that's what you risk when you're seated with other people 😄

We really had a good meal. It was a bit pricey for steak and lobster for two. Our chef was not as entertaining as others in the room. I guess it is just luck-of-the-draw on where you get seated.

Today we went as a family and had a great time! We went for lunch and had reservations for 8. Our table was perfect, the staff wonderful, the presentation while cooking was delightful. Everyone enjoyed the food. Portions at lunch were generous and we took home leftovers. The ice cream birthday desert was a nice finishing touch and delicious.
