Good food. There wasnt enough
Good food. There wasnt enough rice for my fiance so they got a bowl from somewhere else and it definitely tasted like it had been sitting and wasnt as good.they also didnt bring out enough steaks so we had to tell the chef. Other than that it was the typical entertaining experience.

The kid that served us was very good at his tricks, but not very good at distributing the food. We split the rocky's choice; I received 3 shrimp, my husband 4. My husband commented that he felt like he was hyped on the chicken that he received.

I do enjoy going to Benihana. I just can't go very often. It gets expensive because I have to take the family or they get upset.

We had a waiter named Morgan
We had a waiter named Morgan she was outstanding very nice and explained the menu very well she was just all around pleasant it was a older black lady who gossiped mostly at the front desk even to us about employees which was very uncomfortable but Morgan being such a great waiter on top of the great food is why I would recommend going and coming back

I have been to a lot of hibachi style restaurants because I love the food. Our chef, whose name I cannot remember was an awesome chef. He answered a lot of our general questions and was not only very entertaining and fun, but also very polite. If I could, I would request for him to be our chef everytime we visit. Also, the online table reservation service is very convenient.

Always have good food and good time doing hibachi tables. Great place to celebrate birthdays

Long wait, totally worth it
We were celebrating my birthday, as we do every year at Benihana.. Or wait was exceptionally long but the service, food, and environment totally made it worth it! The manager was extremely kind as well..
4/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is my absolute favorite restaurant! It's gets better every time!
4/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
My family enjoys Benihana's for many family celebrations. I was celebrating my bday this day and the service was wonderful. The other people who dined with us were also celebrating a bday.

The best birthday gift I received
My daughter and I Birthday is in May. She found Benihanah coupons online and printed them. I had never been to Benihana, the food was the freshest , well- seasoned and best food I've eaten in my years!! I loved watching Chef Sean prepare the meal and kept my family entertained as he grilled the product. I t was a great eating experience for us and we will definitely go back and invite friends and family!

3 year old's birthday part
We took our family to Benihana to celebrate our three year old grandson's birthday. The staff and chef made the experience absolutely excellent. Great food, great service, lots of fun for everyone.

It is frustrating to arrive on time and have to wait 35 minutes to be seated
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food and service, however for any first timers who have never been there it may be advised that you will possibly be eating in a table with other strangers, thus ruining the romantic one on one dinner plans.
5/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time I visit Benihana I have a great experience, Keep up the excellent work!!!!!
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always it was excellent! I will continue to go there.
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoyed the dinner, everything was hot and tasted awesome. Benihana is one of my favorite restaurants. This dinner was my husband's first time going and he is now addicted
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had to wait to be seated, 20+ tables open (?), food was delicious, onion soup outstanding, needed more explanation on how things work and how to order. My wife's order was put on her plate and the waiter was asking if we wanted ice cream for dessert, it felt like we were being rushed the whole time we were there, as soon as you put your utensils/chopsticks down your plate was being pulled from you even if there was food on it.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had to wait a little to be seated even though I made reservations, but the food is very fresh and delicious! I will go back!
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our chef was awesome! He was from the Columbus, Ohio restaurant and was very clear while giving his introductions that they may do things differently-and they do! His humor was awesome for a nice lunch time meal with friends. I'd recommend for future visits.
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD. BUT THEY TRY TO CHARGE EVERYONE AT OUR TABLE EXTRA FOR FRIED RICE SOME DID NOT ORDER. AND PUT WHAT IT SEEM WAS A MANDATORY 18% TIP ON EVERYONE CHECKS
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a great place to take my god son for his birthday. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was quite tasty.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent. Serving staff was wonderful. Chef was charming, skillful, personable and entertaining. Manager was very attentive.

Service was great and timely. Just wish there were bigger proportions

Good food, not as great as others
We drove from the Akron area to visit the restaurant. The ambiance was nice. But compared to other hibachi experiences, this restaurant was MUCH more expensive. We didn't get as much food, although the quality was good. We had to pay extra for fried rice, which has always come with the meal in other places. We didn't get dessert, which normally comes with the meal from my past experiences. They didn't light the table on fire, didn't throw food...it wasn't as exciting, interactive, fun as all the other places i've been. In fact, it was rather boring. I will definitely NOT drive the extra miles to go to Benihana again and just stick around the Akron/Cuyahoga Falls area for much better entertainment.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Benihana has great lunch specials and they give you plenty of food. As far as a hibachi restaurant is concerned... this place was not any more special than the others.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed Benihana for my birthday. Only negative is how much time it takes between the salad and when chef begins cooking.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Birthday Dinner
The service and the food were excellent! We had a birthday celebration for my daughter and the staff accommodated my family nicely. They placed the cake in the refrigerator and brought out the cake with extra plates and serving utensils. Excellent dining experience!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
You know what you're getting when you go to Benihana. Food is consistently good, chefs are usually entertaining, service is typically pretty good. I'll be back the next time I have an itch for hibachi. No other hibachi restaurant compares.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent chef,server and staff. Nice atmosphere, friendly workers and delicious food. Benihana's has always been my favorite!

Great Service this Time around !
Had a great visit this time around with going to Benihana. The food was great, the cook was great and the server was polite and sufficient. I think Benihana has improved since the recent changes they made. We were well pleased with this visit and plan to go visit Benihana again. Thank you for the excellent service all around :)

I love this restaurant for special occasions. I bring mom for mother's day. I eat there for my birthday. Anniversaries are great also. I do not see this restaurant as an everyday restaurant. The food is great and the shrimp sauce is addictive.

Great Place to Dine
It is a great place to meet people or dine as a group. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. The price was moderate averaging about $20-25 per person. I felt that the drinks were rather pricey at $3.95 for a Mango Lemonade but was Delicious !! So I did not mind in the end. Great entertainment and food and I would definitely go back when we are in town.

Was a wonderful experience for a friend who celebrated his birthday there with his parents yearly until about 7 years ago first bday there since and it was a special night for us
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a really great time. The chef was great. The food was great. My son had a great time.

Enjoy able evening, very accommodating we have a number of food allergies at our table.
drink refill was slow.

Good for a different kind of dinner
We enjoy this type of food several times a year. It is a nice break from your regular meat and potatoes. The food is always prepared nicely and since it is prepared right in front of you, it is always warm/hot and fresh. It was my husbands birthday and it was a special evening for us.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Besides being a Great Entertainer Charlie our cook at Benihanna was a great laugh with great food
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, but not a five star yet
Benihana is a very good restaurant, but the dinner prices are extraordinarily high, it is like buying a car and having to pay extras for the tires. When you purchase the dinner special, one expects the rice to be a part of the meal and not an extra charge. If not, the server should make that clear to the customers. Otherwise, the food was delicious, perfectly seasoned and plentiful, and the hibachi chef was wonderful, it makes waiting for your food exciting.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took my boyfriend for his birthday and it was a great experience. I brought a ice cream cake there for us to share and they put it in the fridge for me. They even brought it out for us with candles and lit them. Very friendly staff I loved every bit of it!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, but our server was inattentive. We had to go find her to order a drink.

Perfect Happy Hour
My friend and I came here for happy house yesterday. We shared the blue punch bowl which was very good. We almost neded an extra person to finish it. Everything was very reasonably priced and the sushi was very well prepared. This was my first time coming during happy hour and I would definitely come back soon.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed food at the restaurant. It was very good and visually appealing. we will return.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always have a great time at Benihana-Cleveland. Food is delicious every single time. The shrimp sauce is to die for!!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife, son and I went out to Benihanas for something different. We were pleased the food was good and service was excellent. A little pricey but ok for a change of pace and something a little special.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great experience! We have come in the past and the service can be hit or miss. However this visit we had a very attentive waiter. The cooking presentation wasn't anything to write home about. He didn't really put on a show, but the food and service was very good this visit. We had a party of 8 for our daughters 10th birthday. They made her feel great!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went there for my wife's birthday had a great time.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We celebrated two birthdays. Our chef was Roy - he was both entertaining and fun. he added a couple new twists.
Food was as always perfect - We will be back
