Ruined Birthday!

Dined on March 26, 2016

Took my wife for 40 birthday because she loves the restaurant actually it was her favorite until this visit. They had a special occasion menu only to hike prices since Easter was the next day. The menu stated you could get a regular menu upon request but the manager said no ( price inflation reasons). I wanted salmon my wife wanted the steak alone not a combo our usual meals which was not included on this "special menu" Chef was not friendly cooked the food backwards overall bad experience to the point my wife said it put a bit of a damper on her birthday and would not be back. We had a party of 10 spent a lot of money their only for my wife to not get quality food or service on her special day. So thanks for nothing ! But I will go to a different hibachi house one who honors with they say and or post, quality and respects their customers.

We had a delicious meal but service was a little slow. We had a 9pm reservation on a Sunday and they didn't start cooking out meal until 10:15pm. As soon as the meal was prepared, the other 6 people around us took all of their meals to go. This is not the normal hibachi experience and if it were faster, I don't think this would have happened. We ended up being the last people in the restaurant! The food was delicious though.

Very busy & noisy, bar service slow but GREAT food

Dined on March 12, 2016

Friday night at 7.30, four of us - 2 couples. Reception was packed as was the waiting area, luckily we had pre-booked. We met our friends at the bar who had been served their drinks but it took a while for us to get served, when we did we were only served one of the drinks then had to flag down the bar staff for the other drink. We were then seated it was very, very loud in the dining room (also had a birthday table of 12 year olds which added to the noise, luckily they were at the dessert stage!). However, the service at the table and the food was excellent - we all ordered the seafood menu - delicious! We would have preferred to be seated in an adults only room as the noise levels did take away slightly from the overall experience.

Extremely disappointed

vip
Dined on March 6, 2016

We haven't visited this place for a few years. That's why it seemed like a good idea to stop in with a few friends. Unfortunately, we were all dissatisfied from start to finish. We had a 7:00 reservation for six. We finally got seated at 7:45. Normally I could live with that, all be it begrudgingly, if I could get a few drinks at the bar while waiting. The lone bartender was to busy though. Our group was only asked once for a drink order.😕 Once seated, we waited at least 10 minutes for our waiter. He was hard to understand and was unable to explain some of the items on the menu. Our table side chef may have been new and his performance showed. The grill was not hot enough when he got started so the fried rice was not cooked correctly and was to oily. He also was unable to multi-task so each meat was cooked individually delaying the meal further. It was near impossible to get water refills but it did happen once. Apparently, management thought their staff did a stellar job because the included a 18% gratuity on the bill. I was thinking 10% or less was in order. Just for the record, I'm usually a 20% or higher guy. I'll never go back!

Dined on March 5, 2016

The place is good but disappointed that they add mandatory 18% tip even for two people. While I would have tipped anyway, the fact it is pre added pisses me off. There is no reason why a tip would be pre-added for two people. I recommend not going to a place like this. The food quality was so-so and the rice was dry. This place was much better before. Not sure why cheap labor is used - nothing like a typical Japanese Restuarant. Very expensive for what you get. Restaurant is very cramped and noisy. Can hear anything even in your own table. Parking is a mess. Complimentary valet takes up all the close spots. Why force valet! Overall there are many other restaurants in the vicinity that are better experience.

Good but had issues

Dined on February 29, 2016

Had a reservation for 5:30 for 2. Other table members didn't show up and they waited until 6:00 to start. The other members had issues with their orders so by the time we got all our food it was 7:00 pm and we had to bag it up and leave (had another engagement). I feel that they should have moved them or us to another table. I only come here once a year for my birthday and in previous years everything has been great, but this year was a total disappointment.

bad service

Dined on February 28, 2016

First off. They making u pay 18 % when u make a,reservation. Not good! Because we waited a hour for our table, then waited another hour to be served. Its like they know they have bad service so 18% is to cover the bad service!!! Will not be going back to this one in Troy. Sad because I go to the MMA School next door. And I love Benihana food. But this service was a turn off for sure(gotta do better)

Dined on February 23, 2016

Each time I go to Benihana the service and food seem to get worse. Our reservations were at 6 and we didn't leave until almost 9 because the waitress and chief were extremely slow. The food is alright but not worth the price. This will probably be my last visit.

Nothing to brag about

Dined on February 21, 2016

Me and my boyfriend go here about once every few months, we always make reservations or else your wait time is horrible over the weekend. It was really crowded and there was really no place to sit or stand without being in the way, when we finally got to our table the gentleman who seated us decided to drop the bomb that even though we requested to have a certain waitress and cook that we have every time neither one was there and then he goes to make the comment "I guess we should've called you to tell you that" ya think? The cook Jack was amazing however the waitress we got was horrible!! We had to remind her multiple times just to get a glass of water!! Definitely not impressed with my experience

Troy Benihana - Friday Night 2/19

Dined on February 21, 2016

I really like Benihana and it's a different and usually fun experience. This trip was probably not picked for the best night. We arrived at the restaurant on time for our 8pm reservations. They were absolutely packed with a bunch of groups without reservations on a wait as well. Went to the bar to wait, but they had one person working the bar for the bar crowd, the restaurant and preparing to-go orders. He was very busy, needless to say. Finally got sat around 9:15. Apps and drinks took another 20 minutes or so to arrive after the orders were taken. The chef seemed new and didn't do the "full show" but everyone was hungry by that point, so no big deal. Food was fine, although they forgot our white rice and we had to wait several minutes after being given our food, so it was all pretty much cold by that time. By the time we finished eating and paid the check we had been there 3 1/2 hours. Next time it will be a non-weekend trip.

We had reservations for 8 pm but didn't get seated until almost 8:30. Sat next to a group that was extremely loud and ruined the experience. Food was ok, but overall the experience was a disappointment, especially since I had great memories from going there when I was younger for special occasions.

I made a reservation and still the walk ins got seated before my family. I was very upset and spoke with a manager. They said they were sorry about the issues but I was not happy cause it was my daughters birthday. And we had family there as well. I felt that the issue wasn't cared for like it should have been. Had more issues when we got to the table to eat. Not sure about going back to soon.

Dined on February 18, 2016

Made a reservation, got there 30mins before our time and checked in. After 30min went by I went up to the front to see how much more time I had to wait to be informed that I was never checked in. The receptionist apparently didn't check me in like she stated. Instead of them seating me once another open came they made me wait longer and everyone who got there after me where seats. Once seated we waited I don't know how much longer for a chef because they were short. The waitress gave us a 20%discount off our bill because of the long wait. I was very displeased with my service this visit.

The food was great and so was our chef. I love coming here! However, our waitress was very rude. She didn't seem like she wanted to serve us and our drinks were always empty. She kept raising her voice at us and wasn't professional in her tone. It was my birthday and she didn't make me feel like it was. Whenever we would ask a question she would get irritated and role her eyes. I was very patient but not happy with her service!
