A word from Benihana - Pittsburgh
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well as your taste buds. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice and dice through mouth-watering steak and tender chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and temaki sushi, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was adequate, but the rice was ala carte and not included in the cost of the dinner!?!? The atmosphere was bad. The whole restaurant was smokey due to bad ventalation. Lighting was too bright. Overall, the restaurant looked old, dirty and dated. The bight spot was the entertaining chef. Pass in this Habachi. "

  • "Our family had a great time celebrating our two children's birthdays. My son loved watching our Chef David cook in front of us. He really liked the marble soda as well! My husband and I shared the chef special and it was delicious. My daughter enjoyed having the staff sing Happy Birthday to her and her brother. For us this is one of favorite special occasion restaurants. We are never disappointed!"

  • "We decided on a whim to go to Benihana with our 2 year old son. We were so happy we did! He enjoyed the milk, chicken and fried rice as well as the rainbow sherbet ice cream (in fact, he talked about it the next day!) The chef was great with our son. He was attentive to the fact that the utensil sounds were not his favorite trick and that he seemed a little sensitive to it. So he toned down the sounds and the "show" was still very entertaining. Our son really enjoyed the STEAM! The others at the table didn't seem to mind and enjoyed seeing our son's reaction to everything (especially the ice cream). We've always enjoyed Benihana, but this is an experience we will never forget. We are so happy for the great food and fun time as a family!"

  • "My wife and I have been eating here for a long time. We celebrate birthdays anniversarys and important days. This past Friday was another birthday celebrated. Our grandchildren were with us and they had a great time. Remington was our chef and he was terrific with them. He also did a great job with our dinners. The waitress was also superb. Thank you for another great night at Benihana."

  • "Pros: The is a great restaurant. My son and I went to celebrate our birthdays (we are born a day apart). We enjoyed the chef's humor during the preparation of our food. The food was delicious. I had the Hibachi Shrimp and my son had the Hibachi Steak. It was plentiful and palatable. The chairs are a little too close together. I felt like I was on top of the person beside me. It's not meant for people who like 'elbow' room when they're eating. Our waitress was attentive up until we started eating our food. Then, she kind of forgot that we had drinks too..."

  • "Seating 8 larger adults at one table is not the best. We had no room to put legs under table etc. People seated with us spread out and made our meal difficult. Pricey too...other places similar have the same meals for a considerable about less... Our sushi wasn't the best tasting either."

  • "I did not enjoy my experience at Benihana this time. The food preparer was very entertaining, but our waitress was very unfriendly. Not once did she smile. She was not very clear on taking our order and we ended up with, and paid for an item we did not order. Even the bottle of beer we had tasted bad as if was old or something. Our bill was extremely high for the food we had received."

  • "Overall we had a good experience. The one thing that upset me was that my son, who sat across the table from me, did not get his bowl of rice. With so much going on at the table, I did not see this happen. My son eat vegetables and his chicken. Of course he us to shy to say anything at the time. Also, making the salad or soup more kid friendly would make more families want to share this experience. Cooking at the table is a great thing for kids, but offer ranch or Italian dressing for salad. Or a bowl of goldfish crackers, grapes, something kids enjoy eating other than the traditional salad dressing."

  • "The food and hostess were both great. You get a good amount of food for the price plus dessert which went great since it was a birthday dinner so of course we had cake. What I feel could improve was the timing of our drinks. I understand that we are not the only ones there but if I order my drinks first I should not be getting them when the chef is ready to cook. Also we had a reservation at 5pm but waited for a half an hr to be seated now there were 2 people over the reservation so the host gave us 2 tables even though he told me I was told there weren't 2 available. The last thing I would make a suggestion about is the fact that everyone at my table was given cold tea which should have been hot but besides that we enjoyed ourselves."

  • "It would be great if there was a way to reduce the noise level. Maybe by enclosing the tables in noise dampening walls, or some other method of reducing the noise level. It is very difficult to hear the waiter, the cook and each other."

  • "I emailed the company after we went. .we had reservations at 6pm on February 25 for 11 people. .The server wasn't too bad but it seemed she had to many tables. .The chef was so disappointing..It was the first time my 9 year old went to a hibachi restaurant we took him there for his 9 th birthday. .We expected a chef to do more entertaining like the other ones we saw while waiting. .it was very disappointing."

  • "I recently went to Benihana's for my 26th birthday. I've been to hibachi grills all over the city and everyone says this is the best. This is true! The food was perfect, and they have the best fried rice ever! I brought a cake and they served it to everyone. This place might be slightly more pricey than others, but you can tell they just want you to enjoy the experience. At most places the chef keeps a tip jar on his cart, but they don't do that here. I will definitely be going back!"

  • "As usual, Benihana's food and service can't be out done. The chef, David was great, as well as entertaining. The food is fresh and well prepared. If you haven't eaten there, you are missing a real experience."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I was disappointed. Our hibachi chef wasn't very energetic or entertaining. He just went through the motions. There wasn't any actual fire, just steam, which was disappointing since my son loves the fire (the main reason we go to hibachi restaurants). The amount of food wasn't very impressive. Our glasses were empty for much of the night. There are other hibachi restaurants that I will choose over Benihana."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The cook wasn't very much into entertaining us at the table. I ordered the hibachi shrimp and the shrimp was so tiny. Did you guys use another kind of shrimp?? It's not what I was used to! Also, my chicken fried rice was rather small too. The food tasted good but didn't understand the portions! The hibachi shrimp costs more now and the size is smaller. Doesn't make sense"

  • "Had a great family dinner. Great food! Was disappointed because we had a 5:30 reservation and did not have a chef (cooker) appear until 6:35. We were seated at table about 5:45. Then we waited for drinks...after we were served soup and salad... they were waiting AGAIN for a chef to prepare our food!! Only had 5 "chefs" for the evening...and for a Thurs evening..I guess it was busy?? Don't think it mattered that we had made a reservation!!"

  • "We love Benihana for the service,atmosphere and the food.. Though the last food prep. Was not as spectacular as usual. Maybe just a fluke. Half of our party felt it was was bland. We were well taken care of for a party of 12, using two tables facing each other. Everyone was very attentive and the kids loved everything. We will definitely return for our family celebrations."

  • "I usually order the same thing each time I visit Benihana. I have found that my experience there is always a direct relation to the chef... some cook better than others. This time around, our chef didn't cook the onions enough and they were pretty raw and the shrimp was a bit overdone. I wonder if you can request a specific chef..."
