Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I visited Benihana-Dearborn this weekend. Two weeks prior to that I had gone with a friend. On my first visit there, mushrooms were a part of our vegetables with our lunch. This time when I went, the chef only made mushrooms for 2 people!! There were 6 of us at the table! I asked for mushrooms, and the chef just bluntly said no! The waitress barely came to our table to check on us, but about 5 minutes after the chef left, she comes over with to go boxes trying to rush us out! Needless to say I asked for a refill and it took forever for me to get my refill. My experience this time really sucked from the chef to the waitress!"

  • "I have only been to the Dearborn Benihana. The food and chefs are always great, wait staff not always but we had an outstanding waiter this visit. There is always a wait for a table even with reservations. They are strict about policies and manager would not authorize a birthday mug for my grandson when his postcard had not arrived, which was a little unsettling given the limitations of using the birthday coupons so it isn't worth another visit for a $7 or $8 mug. I enjoy going here on my birthday but wouldn't go out of my way to eat here without the substantial discount because it gets really pricey with beverages and add-ons."

  • "We recently had not such a good experience here but because we had went so many times before I scheduled my aunts birthday dinner back at this one instead of trying out another location. BAD mistake. The day was 90 degrees out and inside the air was not working, understanding this isn't something they can help we stayed to enjoy our food. However behind our table was a register so every time a waitress was there(which there wasn't really anytime there wasn't someone there) they complained about the heat and poor working conditions. As well as the chef put food on someone's plate realizing he made a mistake he took it back of the plate and mixed it back on the grill to add to the correct plate. This was completely disgusting to my group."

  • "We had a couple who was very unpleasant next to us. The manager came over for them once but they still ruined the whole evening. Its hard to spend that amount of money and have a horrible night. My husband won't be taking me back any time soon."

  • "Your seating is horrible so is the noise and your grill area was dirty"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The service was great but the food was horrible! Our chef used a dirty towel to wipe the grill down. I asked him to use another towel which he did, however the entire meal tasted like fish. It was horrible. I usually order a carryout multiple times a week however the food became so horrible that myself and co workers have stopped ordering meals at lunch time. The rice is usually the best part of the meal until lately. This location stores the rice in a slow cooker and the rice is mushy, lacks flavor, few pieces of meat, egg is dried out."

  • "I love this restaurant! They have awesome food and never fail to be over the top with the service & food! We've gotten to know a few waitresses & cooks & most definitely have our favorites! David was an absolutely wonderful cook & entertainer!!!!"

  • "I went for my birthday dinner and was sorely disappointed in the surprisingly slow service to start. The waitress was busy with other tables for 15+ minutes before we had drinks, even water. After she finally got around to taking our order, the cook was an additional 20+ minute wait. There were no tricks or niceties by the cook, very surprising. I thought the food tricks were standard. The food was good and cooked to order, however. The waitress didn't provide ice cream dessert for everyone although included in the meal. Also, she didn't ask what ice cream flavor I wanted and brought a birthday dessert. She responded poorly when I told her that I wanted a different flavor. She provided subpar service. Overall, terrible experience! Don't go!"

  • "The food was an excellent quality but the service was mediocre at best. The hibachi table chef was somewhat nervous and the wait staff was difficult ito find after the initial orders were taken."

  • "The food is always good at Bennihana's. The Garlic butter is the star. I don't like the fact that I cannot use birthday coupon at lunch. I go every year for my birthday with friends. Little disappointed this year as I did not get a bday picture or ice cream."

  • "Everything was great, waitress, chef, food, and management. Seated shortly after arriving and handled an irate customer, not me, with poise and professionalism. This restaurant had good food, good drinks, and good manners."

  • "I originally Love Benihana this is my first time dining at this location and the experience was bad. First I ordered Shrimp Tempura my favorite Benihana appetizer it tasted like no tempura batter was on it I immediately had it replaced. Then My husband who is allergic to seafood orders chicken teriyaki and requested that his shrimp appetizer be removed due to his allergy. Once he begin eating his throat became itchy and he started breaking out in Hives due to the fact that some type of shrimp touched his food. I alerted the manager who immediately apologized and then I was given my bill I guess they wanted us to quickly leave without making a seen far worse a bad experience here will not return."

  • "My overall experience was amazing. I, truly, enjoyed the food. It was my birthday and my boyfriend's first time. He enjoyed all of it. He was so amazed by the chefs. I'm glad we got the chance to go. Too bad I couldn't use my birthday coupon since it was Sunday, the day of my actual birthday."

  • "The cook was great. Friendly and outgoing. He made the remainder of issues more tolerable. We were sat 15 minutes after our reservation time. This would not be a long wait if it were not coupled with 1hour and 35 minutes at the table before the cook got to us. The server was apathetic at best. Additional problems with service and costs not withstanding. Normally, I don't leave this type feedback. I tend to work with management when there are issues. But this location has now failed to live up to a standard I would deem acceptable for a customer service establishment more than once and now 3 times consecutively. Location management has given no indication that issues are being addressed. Disappointed."

  • "The Chef, Kyle used too much pepper on every dish he prepared. After a while it all tasted the same, pepper . The entire table agreed upon that. Some didn't take their food home , which is unusual dye to the large quantity of food prepared for you."

  • "I work across from the Dearborn location, so needless to say I frequent the location a lot. On lunches, dinners, and special occasions and of course, BIRTHDAYS!!! This was the first time the table was completely quiet. The reservation was for my daughter’s Birthday at 9:30pm. The Waitress set the mood of everyone at the table. She was VERY impatient, used one word commands, like, "Here" instead of "would you like a fork". It was so bad that by the time the cook came out, he was unable to produce much of any excitement from the group. I ordered as less a possible so that this dining experience could end and quickly as possible. The food was GREAT as was the Cook, but as a consensus of us all was the Waitress Spoiled our evening."

  • "Our meal was prepared by Edguardo a young cook with Benihana for less than 2 years. He made the experience notable!!!!! He had personality and interaction with each guest that absolutely made for a fantastic experience. Others looked like they were going through a routine. We noticed many people that assist and I wondered later how our tip would be divided so that everyone would get a piece of it. We had a couple BIG eaters at our table--double rice and trio meals and it was fun watching them enjoy their meal. Our party had drinks(very costly) appetizers and meals.....filet, chicken and tuna steak. Each of us enjoyed our time at Benihana but because of the priceyness, we reserve the experience for special occasions only."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "I wish the chef's would do different things but it's aways the same tricks. The chefs make the experience. The amount of tricks depends on which chef you get. The one we got this time was minimal. The whole point of eating in is to watch the show. There was barely a show this time. Bummer. "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The food was great, our server was wonderful. Our family enjoyed our dinner, as always. My only complaint is that even with a reservation we waited over 30 minutes for our seats, while I heard the hostess imply that the wait was only 15 minutes with one. Other than that it was worth the wait."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I normally like this restaurant but not this time. We were put in the very back in an enclosed room. The cook was not experienced and the smoke from the food was blowing right in my face, clothes, and hair. I'm not saying not to go it's just that this time was not a good experience."

  • "Benihana is a great place to eat and meet new people. The chefs are fun, the staff is friendly and the atmosphere is filled with joy, chatter and happiness! No matter how old you are the chef will bring smiles and amazement with the tricks and treats that they perform while creating mouth watering food your enjoyment! Benihana resteraunt is always a "yes" in my home when deciding to eat out, it's actually requested from my children every time!! "

  • "It is not nearly good as it use to be. I don't know if they are using cheaper products because the taste is just not the same. "

  • "The hostess was polite and the wait was under two minutes. The Waitress came over right away but was not friendly. She messed the orders up and never brought the other party drinks until there food was half way gone. She brought us out cold soup. She didn't come back on us regularly. She was not the best candidate for the job! The cook DAVID was very great, friendly, and a warm personality! He made me feel as if we was family and having dinner at grandma's catching up with one another. But, the waitress was like that cousin you just don't want to see because of her lack of manners!"

  • "I made reservations for 5:30 on Mother's Day a month in advance. When we arrived, it was very busy as expected. We waited until about 5:45 and then asked the hostess how much longer it would be. I was told they had not even seated their 5:00 reservations yet, so it would be quite some time. We had twin 18 month olds with us, so waiting much more was out of the question. We ended up leaving without eating there. Very disappointing! I feel if they are not going to honor reservations, they should not accept them in the first place. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Very disappointed that we had to wait over an hour even though we had a reservation. We were there for over 3 hours all together because we still had a long wait at the table. Our chef was great but they use WAY to much butter and salt. Next I will ask for them to use minimal butter. Way to greasy!"

  • "really don't have much to say about the restaurant is wasn't my first experience only thing I have to say is if a person is allergic to shellfish you should ask them to me either move out of shellfish is being cooked because everyone that was at the table with me and my significant other orders ship fish and I'm allergic and I have a very bad reaction"

  • "Lots of fun, really enjoyed our dinner, excellent food and presentation! The chicken fried rice is da bomb and well worth the extra $$! Only downside, it was really hard to get a drink at the bar while waiting for our table. "

  • "The food was great as always at Benihanna. Sometime it does seem like the chefs are just going through the motions when there is a table of all adults that have been there before. Our chef was friendly but a little soft spoken. The server was great we never had empty glasses. "
