No birthday fun for us!
Very busy even on a Tuesday nig;ht. Had a reservation and still had to wait for almost 20 minutes. Server was SUPER slow with everything.
Glad he wasn't cooking or we would have been there 3 hours instead of 2.
Food was awesome as usual.
Celebrating 3 birthdays at our table and server only talked to one group and asked if they wanted singing, etc. Um what about the rest of us celebrating at the table. We did want the big birthday experience...got nothing. Guess you need to ask for this now or you won't get it.

This was our third visit with BH Columbus. We have not been let down on any visit. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The entertainment of the chef is enjoyable, though the routine doesn't seem to change much. We have celebrated a birthday at this location, and enjoyed the way the staff helps celebrate your day. We have enjoyed several items from your menu, all have been fantastic. We will definitely visit again. We would not hesitate to recommend to friends.

Celebrating my husband's birthday we chose Benihana for our dinner with friends. Had a great chef and exceptional food. Ocean Treasure is my favorite. Hau, our chef, makes the lobster, scallop and shrimp taste exquisite. My husband got the filet and loved every last bite. We'll got back again.

Dinner and a Show
Our experience was fantastic! Our chef was a great entertainer and cook. He was very interactive and had a great sense of humor which only added to the entire experience. The food was fantastic and we all went home full (with take home containers too), having too much to eat. Overall a great evening as we were there celebrating a graduation.

Great Birthday Place
Was great to go there for my birthday and will be going again. Just make sure you print out the birthday coupon before you go.

This was really nice. My wife and I had a great time. The chef was friendly, and he was very good with our table. I will be going back soon. The food was awesome!!!

Birthdays and Babies
We visited Benihana to celebrate the birthday of a 3 year old, and the pending birth of a newborn. The food and wine selections are abundant, food is delicious. Ambience and decor are pleasing. Food preparation AT the table is entertaining..
We would appreciate a little more room at the dining area to enable occupying children during the experience..crayons and a "chef hat" are provided, but little room to maneuver around the plates, glassware, and sauce containers. Overall experience, especially for our "first timers" is Outstanding.

Consistently good food
Kids love the show, although this time I didn't see any shrimp flying into hats or pockets. New tricks would be appreciated. Food excellent as always, pay for the filet! Not cheap, drinks especially tip the bill at over $8 each so for 6 of us it was over $300 so we only go 1-2xs/year for special occasions.

Great Food and Show
The food was excellent and the chef was amazing. We always go to celebrate birthdays. If you join the online club, you get a certificate for $30 off in the month of your birthday. The sauces they have are great, and the chef told us which sauce goes best with each food item.

This was my first time here; I met a friend to celebrate my birthday. I had a $30 entree coupon from their website. The hostess offered a complimentary photo, which was a nice perk. The server was attentive and the chef was very entertaining. I enjoyed my meal very much, but later (the next day) I realized I didn't receive the shrimp appetizer that was supposed to be included with my meal. The server also mentioned ice cream and a song, which I didn't receive. I would come back for another special occasion, but would be aware to speak up if something is omitted.

Our family gathered together to celebrate a birthday. The youngest was 3, and the oldest 89. Our waiter, Brent, made the evening fun and rolled with our wacky sense of humor. We had a great time. The food was delicious...and our chef did a great job entertaining all of us! When you have such a wide range of ages, I would recommend Benihana because of the entertainment in the food preparation. But, if you can score a table with Brent....even better.

Good food--fun atmosphere--wouldn't really recommend for a romantic date, since it tends to be very loud and you generally sit at the same table with strangers, if your party is not large enough to fill the entire table. Our server and chef were great and the food was actually very tasty. Only downside to Japanese steakhouses is the way you smell when you leave! : )

My sister and I went for Lunch on a Saturday afternoon and had a great time! The chef did a lot of tricks and was very outgoing. The food was AMAZING!!! Even the left overs reheated at home tasted great!!! Love this restaraunt!!!

Great atmosphere and food!
This was our first time visiting Benihana and it was a great experience. The Chef was excellent and the interaction with the whole table was great. Menu was full of exciting choices and they had great specials. Truly a fun experience.

First time dining at Benihana. I was most pleased with the fresh taste of the hibachi style food here. Minimal salt and soy sauce allowed the flavors to come through. Great service and atmosphere as well.

Best Benihana Dinner Ever
We've been to a lot of Benihana restaurants over the years all over the country. Some have been great, some terrible. Tonight was the best. Alma was our chef and she should be in charge of training ALL the chefs! She kept the grill spotless, the food separated, seasoned everything without flooding it with soy sauce and salt, and had a great personality. My only gripe is with Benihana in general in that they have eliminated everything that use to be fun - no open flames, no food tossing, no faming volcano, etc. I'm sure it's the lawyers driving the decisions but it keeps us from bringing guests for "the show" - we go to other similar steak houses when we have guests to entertain as Benihana no longer qualifies as "entertainment".

We really enjoyed our time here. The waitress was real friendly and extremely approachable.

In general, the dining experience was fine. The service was fine although the server inadvertently did not get my entire order correct. We have dine at this restaurant several times. It appears that the food quality and quantity were not as high in comparison to our previous visits.

Great Service but ok food
I've been to my fair share of hibachi steakhouses. I didn't particularly like that we had to wait until all of our party arrived to be seated. i made a reservation so we would be guaranteed 10 seats. The server was great, very attentive. It was my birthday so they sang for me and we took a group picture which was fantastic service. The chef was fun. I wish the chef did more impressive tricks. We had a lot of first-timers in our group and I was expecting a bit more of a show. The food did not meet my expectations. The food was too salty and too saucy. I like my teryaki beef with more beef and less teryaki sauce. All the food was just waaaay too salty. I was disappointed in the food but the service was good.

The food and the atmosphere here is wonderful. It's expensive, but you get a lot of great food for your money.
