Dinner at Benihana’s in Concord CA – October 20 2017
I hadn’t been to Benihana’s. This particular visit was to the location in Concord California. We got there a little early and they got us sat with a fun group of people celebrating a birthday.
The drinks were good. Could have been a little stronger. We had an assortment of house drinks as well as our usual Jack & Coke and Captain & Coke.
We had a Las Vegas Roll (I think that’s what it was). It was pretty good. I could have tasted a little fresher, but it was still good.
We both ordered the Deluxe Treat which is their filet mignon coupled with a grilled lobster tail. The filet and lobster was delicious. They were cooked with an outstanding garlic butter that is amazing.
Tony, our chef, was really good. Good deadpan replies to questions from the table. He was patient with the table and very accommodating.
If you’re looking for a good dining experience and haven’t been to a Benihana yet, give it a go. You might like it.
