A word from Benihana - Lombard
Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.

Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

Diner Reviews
  • "For the prices that are charged, portions are extremely small and don't really have a lot of flavor. Additionally, chefs should get more training as I can't begin to say how many times our chef screwed up the various "tricks" that were being performed. Waiter did not come around to check to see how food was, if more drinks were needed, or if there was anything else we needed. I had only been to a Benihana's once before in Vegas and wasn't impressed then, but figured I would try again. It is safe to say I won't be back. There are much better hibachi restaurants out there to go to."

  • "We have been to Benihana Lombard many times. The food is always excellent, great service, and entertainment! It's a great place to bring children and, um, grandchildren. Sushi at Benihana Lombard has always been excellent as well. Since it's about 10 minutes from our house, we are there often."

  • "We have a 23 year old son who chooses Benihana each year for his birthday celebration. Our family enjoys it just as much as the birthday man! The food and the way it is prepared is great."

  • "Sunday night reservation for 7 pm but had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. We had 5 people but wait can be impacted by need to fill tables closer to 8 capacity."

  • "Wonderful restaurant. Great food with great entertainment. Their chicken fried rice is the best. They will sing Happy Birthday in English and Japanese, if that's what you're celebrating. A fun place to go with a large group."

  • "Our waiter was very prompt and accomdating to our needs and was always there to refill drinks and remove our finished plates. The chef was also very vibrant and entertaining. A woman sitting at our table had some very specific dietary restrictions, which would come off as picky and annoying to some, but the waiter and manager were very accomodating to her needs and did everything they could to go out of there way and make sure she had a full dining experience as the rest of us."

Benihana's staff embraced the special moment including a special dessert along with a souvenir picture. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Open Table"

  • "This is our third time at Benihana and will probably not go back again unless our son wants to for his next birthday. The first two times were fun because there was a large group that seemed to energize our chef but this time there were only 4 and our chef seemed to just be going through the motions not even looking at any of us and talking to other workers passing by. Now the gentlemen taking care of our plates and bringing us was water etc where awesome, attentive and gracious but they can't make the whole night. It is VERY EXPENSIVE so you do expect the chef to give you his all for the short time he is with you."

  • "Benihanna never disappoints. We were celebrating a birthday. The food and service is outstanding. Depending on your chef, their preparation style and show they put on varies each time and that is what makes them unique. Their fried rice is one of the best!"

  • "After using the "open table" app (1 hour before) to reserve seating, we appreciate that table was ready, service was hospitable and it didn't take long. Each of us (8) enjoyed the food; from Lemon Chicken to the Noodles with Shrimp, Chicken, and even the beef/steak. Enjoyed!"

  • "Decent place to go. A bit pricey for hibachi considering the portion size. The house cocktails were pretty good as well. Definitely at least $70 for 2 people"

  • "The food was delicious, the chef was very entertaining, and well worth the price in the end! An excellent place for any special occasion!! Though the ambiance, isn't quite right for a romantic evening!! Very family friendly!!"

  • "This is my second time here and the food was even better"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We were seated on time. The service started out well, but then dropped a couple of notches soon after. I understand that your focus is supposed to be on your chef, but we all had empty glasses and were wanting refills. Our waitress did not come back until one of our fellow table mates was finally able to get her attention after she left a neighboring table. This was the case twice that night. Be sure you aren't overly thirsty when you start eating. We didn't even have water to fall back on. Otherwise the food was prepared well and employees were friendly."

  • "This was a last minute decision to go here. I had gone only to Downtown Chicago location and was very pleased with overall experience but parking is terrible so I decided to find a place closer to home. My mom had never been there and so I decided why not? I loved how easy it was to place the reservation online and wait time at the location itself was not bad either. Around 5 minutes only. I would love to come back with a bigger group next time."

  • "Great time, great food, great service! Would love to return!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I made reservations for 730PM, we had to wait about 30 minutes despite the fact we had reservations. The food was good, meat was fresh, nicely cooked in front of you. They have to place people faster if they want to keep the business going. Inside the restaurant was noisy and the waiters took a longer time to serve you. Other time at the same restaurant seemed to be more attentive with the customers"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "While our service was good, it only earns 3 stars in my opinion. Our expectations were high since Benihana is the mother of hibachi cooking, but we were soon disappointed. The restaurant was dated, the portions were not generous, and the food was just average. Have had better at less expensive hibachi grills."

  • "It is nice an d entertaining, however, I do not like sharing the table with people we do not know. I understand that they need to fill the table as much as they can, however, it would be nice if we could have our own table. That is the con of this place."

  • "Went on Mother's Day. Short wait even with reservation but not a surprise. Service was good and food was excellent for the cuisine. Very accommodating. Only real mark down is for the facilities. Just getting very tired. There was a driving rainstorm and one or two of the vent hoods leaked-- staff fixed it. Carpets, bathrooms, bar all need a refresh. All in all a good experience with really tasty food (steak, shrimp, lobster, salad were excellent. Sushi was good). As usual, fun place to take the family."
