    Benihana is always a fun culinary experience. The food quality is good the the salad dressing and dipping sauces are amazing! All the chefs have their different tricks, which endlessly amuse the group while they are cooking up wonderful food. This type of food and preparation would appeal to all age groups….

    My wife and I have been going there for about the past two years on Thursday night. The Chiefs are all great. They are responsive to your requests and attentive to food allergies. I have to admit the sometimes some Chiefs over cook the shrimp but that's just me. The food is really good and fresh and the "show" isn't bad either.

    Great food, good sushi selection. However, do NOT book a RSVP after 10pm. They close @ 11pm and you will be rushed and you will not enjoy that feeling. Understandably so - employees want to go home and Management should allow at least 1.5 hrs minimum for a normal dining experience.

    We were seated with a family of five celebrating a birthday. I noticed the chef's attention and service were focused on them. The family ordered plenty of food like sushi, fried rice, main entrees ,beer, drinks and other extras while we just ordered basic steak and chicken hibachi with green tea. Our steak and chicken were cooked last. We were so hungry when we came in and frustrated we started eating our food when the other family was almost done with their entrees. We never had problems with Benihana before but if this incident continues, we'll never eat there again. Honestly, I really didn't care much for the show. Seen it, been there, experienced it.

    We had a late night reservation since we had went to a concert before. It was freezing cold inside and there were only a handful of other people in the restaurant due to it being so late. However, food was great and our griller was entertaining. Was just a little too quiet for our taste.

    Normally, we go to Kobe or Kyoto or Tokyo Steakhouse in Bartlett (our favorite). All 3 of the other places give you MORE food (mainly veggies), and include dessert. Tokyo Steakhouse gives you 3x the veggies including carrots, broccoli, onions AND zucchini...Benihana only serves the zucchini and onions. Also, Tokyo Steakhouse serves fried noodles in addition to the normal huge portion of delicious fried rice. At Benihana, I was expecting the little dish of ice cream offered to be part of the $25.00 meal, but it is an extra charge of $3.75, but it is included at Kobe, Kyoto and Tokyo Steakhouse. Since the prices at all 4 places are essentially the same, Benihana really needs to keep up to pace with it's competitors...quantity matters!

    Almost too much by the time you get your soup, salad, appetizer, and finally get to the entree (all for one price). However, the chefs put on an entertaining, but repetitive show (if you watch what happens at an adjacent table, there won't be any surprises when the chef arrives to prepare your meal).

    Food was great, people were great. Brought our 2 year old and were able to have a fairly stress-free dining experience. Would recommend to anyone looking for a little entertainment with their dinner and of course, fantastic food. Everything from the dressing on the salad to the soup to the steak was great. Don't know how culturally accurate the place is abut the food tastes fantastic.

    Felt like I was asked to eat on metro train during rush hour. I had a reservation days in advance for my wife's birthday. One other group already at the table when I was seated with my family of 3 total. Wife and daughter were placed at end of the table and I was on the "long side". There was no real room for me so I had to share my limited space with that of my daughter. I was horribly uncomfortable the whole time but did not want to ruin my wife's birthday with a scene at the moment. Group before us had taken the long side all but a half a chair's worth. I had to reach over the man next to me to get to my food which made things worse. Horrible experience for a meal over $100 with no alcohol. More than disappointed.

    Benihana is that restaurant that you just have to try to say you've been there. The food is good and the chefs are engaging. The wait staff was attentive. I would recommend it to others but there are also better habachi shows at other restaurants. Benihana is a staple in habachi meals though.

    A group of us went here for lunch and ordered off the lunch Hibachi menu. The chef for our table I show was Fernando and he cooked the food perfectly. He was also very pleasant and we engagaed him in some simple conversation which added to our positive impression of the place. Good portions. We also ordered just a little sushi off their main menu. Everyone was very attentive there. The menu is all in one little "booklet" and it was a little difficult to find the correct menu from which to order at a given time of day and for a given style. They were very accommodating for wheelchair and electric scooter

    Dining at Benihana was just how I remember it- and in a good way. The food was good, the show was fun, and everyone had a great time. They are currently celebrating their 50th anniversary, so every party gets a photo of their group to take home...a nice touch, and now we have a cute souvenir of my daughter's eleventh birthday dinner.

    We have been here before & it was ok. W/ our reservation we still waited 20 mins. After drinks & orders had been taken our chef came out and started to review the orders, 1st problem-he couldn't read the ticket. Lets just say he went back into the kitchen 4 times! There wasn't enough shrimp for the appitizers, 2 of the steaks and mushrooms were missing, the Lobster was missing and something else (?). My scallops were undercooked, pinkish/blue is not done. My daughter's steak had to be recooked-it was raw. There was no entertainment the "chef" was to distracted by the omissions and errors that there was no room for service. Last they brought ice cream to celebrate our anniversary and gave it to the party seated with us.

    The reason I came to this Restaraunt was because I had a joyous event to celebrate. I brought my friend's two grandchildren as I was not much older when I first ate at Benihanas in Half Day. I was so impresses with the antics of the chef. S This experience was just as exceptional. Our chef was a delight. That was the only reason I chose to come. The food was as expected - very good. The service was very good. I appreciated being able to make on-line reservations with a place to leave a note. I mentioned the girls had never been to a Benihanas and hoped the chef would make it memorable for them. That is what happened. They will talk about this for some time to come Thank you

    Whenever my family wants to go for a special dinner out, we always think of Benihana's first. The staff is so wonderfully friendly and the kids love the entertainment of the chef right at our table. My husband and I always know the food will be first rate and I love their Mhai Thais. There is literally something for everyone when we eat at Benihana!!

    My daughter picked Benihana's for her birthday dinner. We were not disappointed! The food was fresh, the grill was clean...and our server Tom was quite funny and skilled with a knife. Sometimes you can leave these places that cook inn front of you smelly like a hibachi grill and onions...we did not! Meaning the ventilation was good! They even took a picture of our family and printed it for us to take home. Overall, we got just what we came for...a great time!
