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
  • "It's our go to for bday celebrations. Not all Benihana are created equally, we've been to many different locations and Ontario is by far the best!"

  • "ALWAYS make a reservation and go EARLY ! Benihana's is an entertaining dining experience. We went on a Thursday with reservations for 5pm. Our experience was more like a floor show with incidental food being served. By the time we left, the restaurant was packed with guests waiting for more than an hour. The food was decent - not exceptional - and maybe only for our particular chef, but the seafood was seasoned to perfection, while the beef and chicken tasted rather bland - hardly seasoned at all. We will return to Benihana's if only for the unusual and entertaining presentation that accompanies the meals served."

  • "Since my husband and I started dating 7 years ago, we have celebrated our birthdays at Benihanas. And now with 2 children, our experience is even more memorable. Food is great. My kids actually eat the food. Service is prompt and very attentive staff. A bit pricey but definitely worth every penny!"

  • "I come to Benihana's many times a year and always this location but I happen to come for my birthday on Wednesday and I was very dissapointed. First my shrimp was put on another persons plate and then picked off and put into mine then I added corn which I always do and all he did was throw it on the grill add some butter and then toss it on my plate it wasn't even cooked all the way also it was the smallest serving of corn I have ever received. It was just not a great experience and I hope I never get tio when I go back."

  • "I signed up for the birthday certificate and it was worth it. I made a date with my best friend and we had a good time. We got to the restaurant a little early and was please to be seated within minutes! We got to know a little about the other diners at the table who were celebrating their birthdays, too! The food was cooked just as requested. Just be aware, if you order the steam rice, it will be brought out after the fried rice with chicken is cooked. Othewise it was a wonderful 60th birthday!"

  • "45 minutes to get food, everything was served at different times for different customers. Zero timing...one member of our party had her chicken done and sitting on her plate for 15 minutes before the rest of the meal and remainder of the party was served. My lobster tail was cooked 10 minutes before my steak, and when I ate it, was ice cold."

  • "David the Bartender is Fast, Friendly and will Remember you and your drink. He's always making us feel welcome and comfortable at the bar before dinner. Alice is the nicest Server you'll ever meet at the restaurant. She came to America alone with her two children and works hard to provide for them by delivering on great service and ensuring you come back over and over. She never misses a beat on the little details and is amazing on the big ones (birthdays, anniversary's etc.) Round of Applause you two!! The 6 of us had a marvelous time once again."

  • "This location was once one of the best teppen grills in Southern California. Portions are smaller and the quality is not what it used to be. There are several newer better options that offer more. We will see what the future brings for this location."

  • "Experience and food was great except the servers/greeters. They all seemed like they hated their jobs and it was very uncomfortable. I don't think they smiled once!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food was excellent! And, the service was great. A nice and unique dining experience for any occasion. We celebrated our wedding anniversary. Thanks for making it special."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "We booked the same day....just my husband and I sat at a table with another couple and 2 guys that were in the area for trining for the edison co. great chef great food, and excellent time altogether couldnt have been better!!! except of course unless my family would have been there!!! i would recommend it for everyone."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "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."
