Wonderful experience - the best time we've had at Benihana after years of birthday dinners here. I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and have to eat gluten free and was nervous about making it work. After some time the manager came over and set us up for the chef to cook our meals after the others safely so I could enjoy my meal without having a reaction. SO appreciated this help, and major kudos to Jason and the manager on duty on September 19 2017. We live in CA otherwise we would definitely be back and request Jason!! If you come here just be sure to speak to a manager first so they understand your meal needs to be prepared separately.

We dined at Benihana for Mother’s Day and it was fantastic. The server, Magic (if I understood her name correctly), was phenomenal and understood allergies extremely well (I have celiac and also have to avoid dairy, and my husband and daughter have shellfish allergies). She made my soup without the fried onions and brought me oil and vinegar to go on my salad, and then made sure the chef knew to use gluten free soy sauce and not to use butter on my food. Chef Chico was extremely accommodating - to the point that he cleaned the grill twice to make sure that no gluten or dairy made it into my food. I cannot say enough great things about them! We will definitely be back!
