A word from Benihana - Ontario
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
  • "We have always lived benihana, the food is great, it is fun watching the chefs. But the last two times we have been, the chefs have not been very good. Salvador completely lacked any type of energy and enthusiasm for the job. He was like a robot, going through the motions with no feelings. Our chef the time before that spent so much time speaking in Spanish to the other patrons that those of us that didn't speak Spanish were left feeling uncomfortable and left out. One of my favorite chefs is Chef Benny. He is funny and a delight to watch."

  • "Ive came here maybe 5 times and always had great servers and great food, this time was just horrible, a server Monica was her name she was very unprofessional and rude when it came to our concerns. But we will return one day, hopefully we dont have her as our server, but the mngr was very helpful and he did discount our meal due to the inconvenience. So thank you for that as well."

  • "Absolutely the worst service I have ever received! It took us over 1 hour to get our soup and over 2 1/2 hours to get our food. We had a reservation for 7:00pm and did not get our food till 9:05pm. Never again will I go to that place."

  • "Been going here for years nothing changes...same food, same tricks , same everything. I'm glad, because many places that have been around as long as this place change owners and food and service fails. The whole franchise no matter where you go is the same so you know exactly what to expect. I like for special occasions they take a free pic of you as a souvenir."

  • "Honestly, it was quite a disappointment. After waiting a good 20 mins to be seated (although we had a res and we were all present), we had to wait another hour at the table before the chef showed up. It was not fun to watch all the other tables getting the presentation and food while we waited. The drinks had virtually no alcohol in them. The bill was astronomical. I rarely complain about a night out, but honestly this was one of the worst! We will not be back. To top it off, the food was marginal at best. I spent a small fortune for our party of 8 and felt it was definitely not worth it. We were so disappointed as we had looked forward to this night for a long time and were celebrating a landmark birthday. Oh well....never again."

  • "My kids and I were on our way home from vacationing in Palm Springs! We were to catch a flight in Ontario and stopped at Benihana a before heading to the airport. With only 2 hours to go before our flight, we had to cut our meal short. We alerted the nurse that we had a flight to catch and she was kind enough to hurry the meal along for is. In the end, we ended up taking most of our food to go! The waitress was most accommodating and brought us containers to go, utensils and napkins and even extra sauce without us having to ask. As soon as we got on the plane, we tore into our food. Several people on the plane asked where it came from and what it was because it smelled SO good!"

  • "Service was horrible! People make reservations so they dont have to wait, my group arrived 15 mins early and ended up waiting 45 mins before getting seated. The employees thats seated us were snobby and seemed to not care that people with reservations were waiting so long. The food was good but the waiting when we sat down was crazy long in between coarses. I like the food but ill find another location to eat at."

  • "All the chiefs are skilled. Depending on the cook, you could have a very interactive and entertaining experience; like with the chief Robin, who really made my friends and my experience memorable. Quality of the food and service were ideal. I highly recommend for a nice change in restaurant experience."

  • "The food was ok but my waitress service was terrible she was no were to be found and a buss boy hade to get us our drinks like 3 times and silverware. And the biggest desapoiment was that you force me to tip her more than $50.00 SOOO not worth it.."

  • "First and foremost, if you want a table in a timely fashion, make a reservation. Otherwise you are typically looking at a 30-90 minute wait. It does get that busy. Second, if you have a special preparation request (low sodium soy sauce, extra garlic butter, no mushrooms, whatever) feel free to ask. The chef is happy to oblige. The food is expensive, but it is oh so worth it."

  • "Let me start off by saying this is our 3rd bad experience at this location because of the hostess. we didn't even stay to eat here. When we first walked in the door the host didnt even acknowledge us until she was off the phone. We had a reservation for 3pm and got there about 15 min early, but yet a couple walked in at 255 and was seated before us. She said she couldnt seat us until after 3 exactly but when she did seat us, she sat us with a group of people that had a reservation at 4pm. We ended up leaving and wont be back to this location."

  • "Always seated immediately with open table. The chefs are so talented and entertaining. They are excellent about special food requests. They also love having children dine with them. Many special occasion dinners are always going on simultaneously so noise level is high. They are open during times other restaurants in area are not. Make sure to make an Open Table reservation since they can get quite crowded with some wait time. Great location next to Ontario Mills but not in it."

  • "Thx for the $30 off but its annoying that I cant use that with the chef special for two when I already ordered a single dinner plate. Then to make a suggestion to get one plate and share for 3 people is absurb."

  • "My mom is handicapped, in a wheelchair and on oxygen. It is a struggle going out and about. We did not want the big hour and a half, dinner and a show that they usually have when you eat at their normal tables. I wanted to sit in the lounge and get good food before we went to see Cher at Citizen's Bank Arena. I sent that information into them when I made this reservation yet we were not accommodated at all. "Lounge is first come first serve." Then I had to move my own chair across the bar to get two together so we could eat, the menu I was given was completely filthy with dark brown smudges and it made everything seem less appealing. The wait staff in the lounge was so inept, the sushi chef even snapped at him. Food was good."
