Benihana is a fun place to take a small grou p of people and have a decent meal. Depending on what chef you get (its all by luck, you never know) you can have either a spectacular time, or just a so so time. The food is pretty consistent in quality and taste though, so that's reassuring. The prices aren't bad, once you factor in the fun. There are similar alternatives though which provide slightly better meals and better chefs.
