As for the noise question:
As for the noise question: it was semi noisey, but it was a good noise. You hear the clanking of the knives on the grill from other tables and everyone cheering on the chef. Makes it even more fun!

Great place. Had not been there in years, and really enjoyed it on Easter. Will definitely be back.

Fast paced and healthy
Had not been to a Benihana in years and was reminded of the healthy food and fun to be had watching the cooking process. The restaurant was fairly busy and a bit noisy, but that sort of helped with the vibe that we were attending some event. I had the scallops which were very good.

Great place for special occasions.
It was our first time to Benihana to celebrate a birthday. We had a wonderful time and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the chef's performance. Highly recommended for special occasions. The staff even sang "Happy Birthday" and had a treat for my wife.

They really put on a show.

My 65th birthday
Celebrated my birthday with Tom and my daughter & her family. My 12 year old grandson was amazed. Plus he has a special needs diet and was accommodated without any problem.
Thank you for a wonderful birthday.

The first time I have ever
The first time I have ever been to Benihana and it was really good. My only compliant is they would NOT let us use a birthday coupon on a Saturday evening. The had the $46 steak and chicken special and it was really good. Have no problems with returning.

The food and service was very good, and my kids loved watching the chefs cook the food. Very entertaining!

The (2) Lobster Tail dinner was a real treat! It was under $40.00 and very filling with all the sides they prepare for you. I added fried rice. Very Nice!
6/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my 1st time at Benihana. The food was amazing and would definitely love to go again. The service that we had was not as great, but it seemed that other tables did not have the same issue. We had to ask a few times for our drinks, waiter seemed to forget to place them. Our chef did not too much for the entertainment value of this type of restaurant. Was envious of some of the other tables who seemed to be having more fun.

I really enjoyed the food and service. Very neat and cleean

Loved Benihana in Schaumburg!
Staff was extra courteous and our Chef was amazingly attentive and friendly. It was the first time for my son and Boyfriend...they were very impressed! We got there a little early and they took us right away. Good was delicious; and we have a memorable picture taken in a souvenir frame that was complimentary! Nice job!
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Since Benihana in Schaumburg updated their decor, the restaurant is much nicer. we had great service and a wonderful and friendly chef. we specifically came to this location instead of one that is closer to our house because we enjoyed the service. The food is also great!

Great Birthday Tradition Restaurant
For over 5 years now, it's tradition we take our son and daughters to Benihana's on their respective birthdays. They both enjoy the special occasion of good food, entertainment and the Benihana birthday song!

We chose to go to this restaurant for my son's birthday. He felt special. In his words, he felt that the staff was not just there to do a job, but that they truly love what they do. He felt that the food was much better than any similar restaurants that he has had. I had to agree.
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoy going to this restaurant for special occasions with the family and friends.
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I give my thumb up with chef Juan
He knows how to entertain the customer. Food great!!!

The chef who cooked at our table, Honma, was wonderful. Everything was cooked to our liking, and the dipping sauces were great. Fun time, would do it again!

great birthday experience
Took Mom for birthday and the staff couldn't have been more acomodating. It was a little hard to hold a conversation but overall show by chef and food were great.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun time that was almost perfect
The restaurant provides what you expect from a Teppanyaki dining experience. The environment is high energy, the chef is a performer who likes to interact with the table, and the wait staff was on point.
One item that would have made it perfect was the food. For the most part, things tasted great and were cooked well, however a couple of items, including something as delicate as sea scallops, as well as my friend's filet steak, were left on the grill for way too long, even though the chef asked specifically about a level of doneness for the meat.
Because of that, the scallops were firm with a rubbery texture, and the steak was over-done. Even with those two missteps, the food was still above average.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed my Birthday celebration at a table of very nice ladies. Chef was very good at what he does and would recommend anyone who hasn't experienced a dinner presentation, to find their way to the Schamburg location. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection.

Thank you for making my 51
Thank you for making my 51 Birthday a very happy one!!!

We have been here several times and always get great service. The food doesn't taste salty and is cooked just right. We are on a small budget in these times and your monthly special helped us celebrate in style.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great As Always
We have been to Benihana - Schaumburg many time and have always enjoyed our time there. The staff is fast, friendly and efficient. They take care of any special requests without making it seem like they are doing you a favor, which we have experienced at other restaurants. I think the single most memorable thing is the consistency of the experience. It is what keeps bringing us back to this restaurant.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for birthdays
I took my dad here for his birthday and he enjoyed the show, food and service. He was surprised that he got a birthday desert and a free picture. Overall we enjoy this place.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I celebrated my girlfriend birthday there. Always a good time and the food is soooooooo good. They sang happy birthday song and made if a special day. At end of meal they came out with ice cream with a candle for her to make a wish and blue out. Highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and a great little show
Our family likes to go here every once and awhile to break up the normal dinner the chef show is nice and the kids like it.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a Great Time
I made reservations for a party of 6 and we got in right a way. The food and service was great and the chef was real entertaining while he prepared our food. I will definitely come again and recommend to everybody I know.

Very entertaining dinner with good food and service. Good selection of dinners and usually a good special or two! The cooks are entertaining and attentive to customer needs.

Love the Benihana experience. Took my three children (18, 15 and 8) to celebrate my birthday, they thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience.

A Little visit to the orient
What a great place to celebrate your wedding anniversary or birthday. Servers were very attentive and food was cooked to perfection. They sing Happy Anniversary in Japanese and give you a sweet ice cream treat. They also take your picture and give it to you to take home.

Fun place to Celebrate
My friends and I have been going to Benihana for a long time to celebrate birthdays and just to get together to catch up with each other. We love the cook right at the table experience.

Great Birthday Dinner
The food was great! My 1st grade son and I went to dinner to celebrate my birthday and they made it fun for both of us! He loved all the fun "tricks" the chefs do. He loves their food, especially the steak and shrimp. Thank you for making it a great night!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was awesome!
Took my daughter for her 21st birthday. Food was awesome! Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. My only negative, would be that I was looking forward to having them come out singing happy birthday like ALL the other tables that night as I was able to bring in a cake for them to come out with after dinner. I was disappointed, however, when they brought the cake out SILENTLY and just placed it down to light the candles THEN sing happy birthday. It kinda' spoiled the surprise aspect!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, as always, was outstanding. However, it was the service that made this restaurant amazing. I had signed up for the Chef's Table (it's free) and was given a $30 birthday certificate towards my meal. The server and chef were notified of my seafood allergy and were very discreet about making the seafood after my food was cooked. At the end, they brought out a birthday sundae and sang happy birthday. They even took a picture of our group and printed it for me! Such a special, personalized experience.

Great surprise ...
I was recommended this place to celebrate my brother's birthday, and it did not disappoint. The food and service was amazing. Not only is the food cooked fresh in front of you, it's also a source of entertainment. My brother loves Asian cuisine, and he had a great time. I really enjoyed them singing happy birthday in both English and Japanese; for some reason it was unexpected.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great place to celebrate my birthday. Their Chef's table offers such a good gift. Then on top of that you get dessert and sung to. The kids had a blast watching the chef and he performed well for the kids. Everyone had plenty to eat and a lot to take home.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best to date!
I've been to this restaurant many times, but this was by far, the best food to date! Steak and lobster were done perfectly, where normally the lobster is dry and tough. Steak at medium rare was perfect, and the chef was very entertaining. I will ask for him by name the next time we go.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
We decided to go there on a double date, and it was our first time trying it. The food was delicious and our cook had us laughing the whole time. At first we thought the food was a little pricey, but the price included soup, salad, vegetables, a shrimp appetizer, the entree, and dessert. It was all delicious and well worth it!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Benihana is a great place to come with a group of up to 8. The chef is great and cooks the food right before you! Very friendly environment for everyone!
