A word from Benihana - Lombard
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "They were very accommodating to the 2 of us who combined are allergic to soy, gluten, corn, beans and dairy. Always good food and easy to make food everyone loves."

  • "We have always had a great meal and a fun time at Benihana. The chefs are humorous and entertaining and the servers are attentive. The food is always very good."

  • "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."

  • "My family & I usually dine @ hamadas in tinley park. I thought benihana would have been the same if not better. It was not. The food was bland, portions were small & it was way more expensive than what we spend @ hamadas. Not to mention we usually leave with leftovers. The drive was also farther for us. Overall it was not worth what I thought it was. We were all very disappointed. Especially my daughter. The dinner was for her birthday. She asked that we just stick to hamadas it's much better (she's 7)."

  • "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"

  • "kids menu is pricey. I did not realize that you have to pay extra for side of rice with the entrée."

  • "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
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "The food was great and I love the show that was put on. The service was also good as I expected. This was my first time coming I definetely would be back again! I loved it!"

  • "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."

  • "Nice change of pace from a normal date night out. Lots of fun to watch the food being prepared right in front of you. (The chef was fun and I learned a trick or two for cooking at home)"

  • "We had reservations for 730, we were sat at 8:15. Not a big deal overall but couple that with the fact they messed up our food order It really took away from the experience"

  • "My family and I had a nice dinner. We sat with two other family's and they were good company. We would of liked a more experienced asian chef instead of Carlose. He seemed new. He did pretty well considering all the different type of food that was ordered, but my daughters scallops were over cooked."

  • "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."

  • "Benihana Lombard is always a fun place to eat. I love teppan steak, seafood, and their sushi is pretty damn good too. The chef always cooks steaks to accurate levels. When you say rare, it is served rare. If it's too rare, you can ask to have it cooked more. The crew at Benihana Lombard is very attentive, and friendly. I have only good things to say about Benihana Lombard. They do it right!"

  • "This was the 1st time I had ever been to a Benihana. It was very noisy and we could not hear the staff speaking very well. They did make an excellent effort to confirm our order, and there were no mix-ups. The chef at our Table was Angel. He was excellent! The food was prepared well and was delicious. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I really enjoyed my experience here. It was nice to see the food made right in front of you, and the little story the chef made while he was cooking it. The food was great and so was the service, I'll definitely be back."
