Jose, our chef was fantastic. He kept track of everyone's order and satisfied everyone's tastebuds. My 9 year old and I had an awesome lunch.

Food was fantastic as always.
Food was fantastic as always. The only thing was we really felt rushed to leave. My son's friend was not finished eating - literally still had his fork in his mouth and the waitress picked up his plate and put it in a to go box. We all laughed about it, but honestly that should not happen.

My birthday party at Benihana's
FABULOUS - my birthday experience was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have had in quite awhile.

My first time eating there
My first time eating there I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere also the lunch price was great for my budget.

Great Special Occasion
Food fresh, good quality, good menu selection, great preparation, entertaining, good service and great interaction with chef and fellow diners sharing table. Would recommend for special occasion or group dining. Can be pricey so be aware of your selections and drink order. Lunch is a good option if you are price conscious.

My friend and I enjoyed the dinner at Benihana on Saturday May 11, 2013. The food was good and the service was excellent.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great but I was disappointed that all I got for my birthday was the ice cream. My friends said that they got a Happy Birthday song and a picture. Did we have to request that? Also we had to wait on a table even though I had a reservation. We were waiting on the last 2 people to arrive but when they did we still had to wait 10 minutes. The problem that I had with the service is that I ordered a glass of water and never did get it and my sister ordered a drink but didn't get it until the end of the meal. I know they were busy and it was hard to hear but I was disappointed in the service. Seemed like the waitress had too many tables and not enough time to check back.

We had my daughter's grad party here and it was wonderful! They sang to her in Japanese and gave her a special dessert.

Wonderful Ding Experience
We had a wonderful dining experience at Benihana in Cincinnati. The food was great, and abundant for the price. The service was great and our Chef was very entertaining.
6/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
The overall experience was good. It was a little noisy in the main dining room, but the restaurant was busy. Our Chef was trying to be interactive (Jaime) but it was difficult to hear him over the crowd. The servers were prompt, courteous and friendly. My wife and I have dined at Benihana previously and have no reason not to return in the future. This was a good evening out for the two of us and would recommend dining there to our friends.

excellent date night
As always Benihana was delicious and an exciting experience. Chef was full of energy and the food was excellent. Can't wait to go back!
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the food and ambiance, but..
I love Benihana and always have. Can't get enough of the fried rice and red flower iced tea. The only downside is that every time, regardless of making reservations, we still have to wait some time to get a table. It doesn't make sense. Why make reservations? Our chef was awesome and we enjoyed the folks at our table. All in all, it was a great Father's Day dinner.

We were celebrating my birthday with 6 other people at our table; who were also celebrating their birthday. We enjoyed the great food, excellent service and the restaurant manager time and time again makes sure their customers are happy. Highly recommended

Lunch with granddaughter
My granddaughter will be leaving for active Army duty soon, so I asked her what she'd like to do before leaving. She had recently been to Benihana's with a cousin and wanted to go back. So we went in the afternoon. Benihana's is a nice family place; hadn't been to one in years. Nice, but not upscale; casual. I appreciated the fairly low noise level. (I turn right around and walk out of places with loud music.) The cooks are entertaining and make me wish I had a griddle that size in my house. Food was good, but I'm not a good judge of Japanese food; I prefer Chinese. Overall, it would be a good choice to take the kids to watch the food prep. I'd go back, but probably only for a special occasion of some sort. Prices were reasonable.

Great for Lunch!
The menu is extensive but not too expensive @ Lunch. Wonderful food, and watching the chef prepare the food is a treat!

Great son's 21st Birthday
My hole family enjoyed the experience of the dinning and the food was very good. I look forward to returning to the restaurant for another meal..

Loved the experience!
Took a friend for her birthday and we had a great time. She and her 13 year old daughter had never been and they absolutely enjoyed the evening. Great food and friendly staff.

More about the cook
The food was very good, but our Chef was the best. I learned that he's been with company for 15 years and you could tell by the way he prepared the food and the show he put no for us. Most of the time when I go there the shows are very similar, but this time it was different and at a higher level.
Great time with my daughter.

great for groups
Nice way to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or social gathering with small group of friends or family
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
it was ok....
The only reason I go to Benihana is because I could use my birthday coupon. The staff worked with me because I printed off the wrong birthday coupon from 2011. I appreciate that.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Energetic Service Needed
Our Chef Mike was excellent and entertaining. The meal was fabulous. Our waitress was like a walking zombie..no smiles, absolutely no personality. Unfortunately, I don't know her name. However, unless she was just having a bad day, she has no business being a waitress.
If she is that way everyday, I am sure you know who I am talking about. There is no way she could go unnoticed by her peers.

The Ultimate Experience
Good food... Good meat... Good friends...
Let's eat...Benihana is the ultimate dining experience

We've been to Benihana's many
We've been to Benihana's many times before at the downtown Cincy location, but never to tri-county. This recent trip to the tri-county location for my friend's b-day far exceeded our expectations. Obed (I believe that was our server's name) was excellent, the staff was so friendly and energetic, and the food was awesome! Benihana's is more than dinner, it's an experience and it definitely made our visit so very memorable!

Great food and good people!
Great food and good people! But if you are trying to go on your lunch hour, be warned. It is not possible to get in and out under an hour and a half!

Benihana is Always Fun!
I always love going to Benihana -- I usually only go when it's my birthday! So it's definitely something to look forward to every year! This restaurant is definitely fun and you do pay a little more but the experience is worth it! I will say that if you get a chef with a fun personality, it makes it ten times as good because they can really heighten the experience! If they just show up and cook and don't add any flair (which I have seen), then it is just another restaurant experience.
Also, it definitely helps to sign up to the Chef's Table (online) because then during your birthday month, you get a $30 gift card to eat there during your birthday month which is essentially a meal (depending on what you order) for free!

Great place for special occasions.
My wife and I have been going to Benihana Cincinnati, Tri-county location, for Valentine's day and our wedding anniversary every year. We have enjoyed every meal for the past twenty two years here. We have three girls that enjoy the dining experience very much.

Special night out
We come to Benihana all the time and love it! The food is wonderful but the building itself needs alot of work done to it. The inside looks torn apart and shabby and the outside could use some updating.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Normally I o to Benihana with friends but, this time they were all unavailable. I went in and was sat at a table with some other people and we had a great time. The food was great the chef was awesome and the server kept the refills coming and was attentive to our needs.

Moeller Homecoming Reservation
The service was excellent, the seating was functional, and the food was perfect - overall the meal went very well. I enjoyed meeting there and I believe that all my other friends enjoyed attending such a high class restaurant. I think it is safe to say if we ever need a meal again, Benihana's will be our top choice.

Great place to eat.
I love when we get to eat here. Benihana is a great place with great food and a great staff.

Fresh and Fantastic
Love our Benihana!!! Always the favorite spot for a Birthday or a get together. Food is consistently good and the newest touch was a photo taken of the companions dining together for a Birthday celebration.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We hadn't been to Benihana's
We hadn't been to Benihana's in over a year. In that time, the chefs have definitely gotten better and more entertaining. More like they used to be when the restaurant first opened. We'll go more often and take the grandkids. Go to their website and sign up for the birthday $30.00 coupon.

Amazing experience at chef's table
I enjoyed the kid friendly atmosphere at Benihana , the chef & host were very polite- unique, making sure that no one was allergic to any foods etc. I definitely would refer many people to this location. The food was fresh as always delicious!! Thanks for the photo:) last but not lease I want to thank you all for inviting me to share my birthday celebration. with my family.

great night out for dinner
Dinner was wonderful as usual. Only 4 at our table, but they we very nice company.

As always the food is excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
enjoyed the meal
The restaurant is under renovation at the moment, and is on the cold side. They don't have heat or air conditioning so the temp is going to be coming from outside. The first table we were at has a heavy draft from outside so I asked to be moved... then the whole table moved with us. the second table was much better. The food and our cook were both very good.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Right now they are going thru
Right now they are going thru remodeling...not as scenic, but the food was delicious!

Good food good show
This was my grandson's first experience at this type of restaurant. He was really impressed. We do feel that this is an expensive experience but worth it for special occasions. Would liked to have more of the family attend.
