Unfortunately the host neglected to award my open table points after I checked in so I had to take time to respond to open table's questions.

I was meeting 2 of my girlfriends
I was meeting 2 of my girlfriends and it would have been nicer to sit at our own table instead being paired with a family. It would have made us more comfortable talking, but I do understand that it was done due to timing/staffing.

Fun and interesting. Table chefs are entertaining.

Good but not Great..
We went here as a treat for Mothers Day. Our server started out great, but we lost her mid meal. We sat with empty drinks for awhile before she returned. She also did not tell my party that fried rice was more money. And at dessert time said we had 6 coming, but did not specify who had dessert as part of the meal. The food was good and enough to satisfy. Everybody in my party seemed happy with their selection. We all enjoy the food made in front of us..even though our chef was missing some of our food and had to leave to get it. This was not the best visit we had, but would return in the future if family asked.

Fun and Food
We always enjoy visiting Benihana. The food is good, and the entertainment is great. Chefs come straight to your table and cook right in front of you. The value is decent, you get a bowl of soup and a small salad to start when ordering an entree. Then, a shrimp and vegetable appetizer, and your meat is the final portion. Also includes a side of rice. You can get fried rice (which is excellent) for a slight upcharge. Drinks are great. It's a fun time.

Love the Food and The Show
I love Benihana's. The food is so good and it is cooked right at your table. And your own personal chef that cooks your meal also put on a great show for you too.

you get two for one...entertainment plus a lot of great food. you can't beat the value. Service was energetic and helpful.

Place for a Family Celebration
This restaurant is an excellent place for a family celebration. We've celebrated birthdays and other occasions here, and never been disappointed. Depending on the number of people you have in your party, elbow room can be a little tight at the grill, but family members shouild be close anyway. The food and show by the chef are first rate, and compare well with any other restaurant serving this type of cuisine. Next time, the sushi bar for just two of us!

A Classic You Should Try Once
Benihana hasn't changed much from my childhood. You still get the show at the hibachi grill (although most of the chefs are no longer Japanese) and the drinks are good as well. Every group seemed to be having a birthday at their table and they still sing to you in Japanese. It's a fun evening and one I think everyone should experience at least once.

Great food as always
The food is always great and our Chef did an excellent job. The waitress was a little slow though and not really sure why. It seemed like the Chef was looking for her most of the time while he was cooking because she never was really around. At one point he even went into the kitchen himself to get something because no one ever came by. But like I said before the food was great and the rest of the experience was excellent.

The food preparation is fun
The food preparation is fun to watch and the quality of food was good. The wait staff was attentive with drinks.

Great spot for lunch!
Some other hibachi places don't open for lunch during the week but this one does! It was great and they use a lot less oil and butter than other places- a safflower oil mix, which is on the healthy side for oils too!

entertaining and good to eat
We loved the service they provided for our family.
We recommend the rolls, they were very tasty.
The chicken and shrimp for two was economical and very good.
Would recommend for a special occasion or fine dining for two.
Was able to make reservations online and get seated quickly.

Chef was great. Sunday evening
Chef was great. Sunday evening and lots of little kids. Did not really enjoy that experience as we had a 3 year old transform into crying screaming and a parent yelling. Huge tables if kids behind us. All very young. A little chaotic but the dads were right on top of it and curtailed their boisterous group. I think the hostess could have done a better job seating but the chef was great and server very pleasant.

We'll be back!
The chef was entertaining and the food was DELICIOUS!!! The restaurant decor was very charming. I especially enjoyed the Green Tea ice-cream, yum! I felt very comfortable in the dining area. Wasn't too noisy like other restaurants. Servers were very time efficient. I just love that! I had a great time at Benihana's!!!! Thank you for your service.

We drive a great distance to eat here and we are never dissatisfied. In fact, this last time the service was even more outstanding that usual. Food is fantastic and prompt. Thank you Benihana's for making our celebration top notch.

Great place to take out-of-town guests, for a fun night.

good night out
Food was really good but the service outstanding. Our Server Christian was helpful, attentive but not overly clingy, and friendly. Would definitely go back

Great for birthdays
Celebrated my birthday at Benihana again this year, and they always make it special! Great food, great service and an all-around good time.

always a great experience
My husband and I love to mark special occasions with a trip to Benihana - birthdays, anniversaries, job successes, etc. The staff is always so friendly, the food is consistently wonderful, and it's just a really fun dining experience.

Benihana - Wheeling
Excellent service, great food, and as always a great show by the cook. I love their "shrimp (cream) sauce". I just wish I had the recipe.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Benihana is always good food and good times. The experience is made by the Chef and this time it was more watching someone prepare food than getting dinner and "a show". No reason to not keep going back - it's still a fun spot.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was great. It was a nice intimate place. My boyfriend and I enjoyed the show the chef put on.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
love a professional show & staff
also can meet interesting people and while watching a great show with great food.

great birthday dinner
we arrived at benihana on a sat night at 7pm after leaving another local teppanyaki restaurant. my son wanted our family (party of 5) to have our own table. the other restaurant was not able to accommodate us. the host initially explained (very patiently) that there were several reservations coming in and he couldn't do it. He did, however, offer us some options (dine later or eat at a table in front without grill). As we were discussing the options with our son, the host clearly saw how special the dinner was to our son and made it work anyway. We got our own table and he made our son's birthday dinner a success. This is way customer service should be. thanks to all who were working that night - we really appreciate it.

Great location. Plenty of parking. Friendly staff. Very clean and nicely decorated. Fast service and delicious food. We completely loved our entire experience and will be back.

We enjoyed the food and the service that we received when we went to celebrate my birthday. The waiter was very good and went the extra mile for us.

Fun and delicious
We always love Benihana. The food is great and comes with a show. ;-) The service is always very good, drink refills are quick and because the chef is standing right in front of you cooking we have never had a mistake that wasn't rectified immediately. Over the years it has become a little more commercial in their offerings but it is what it is and its delicious and a good time nonetheless.

Food was good. The guy who was doing the cooking infront of the diners was so quiet and very shy. He needs to get the crowd
going and fascinated with what he's doing. He needs to speak up.

The entire staff was great from the hostess to the server to the chef. The steak was cooked perfectly!

We went there this past weekend with our family (4 year old included) for my husband's birthday. We had a lot of fun! Benihana is an oldie but a goodie! Food was delicious and cooked precisely. Their cocktail menu was a mile long, and we all enjoyed it. Service was very good and timely. No complaints at all, just a fun, easy place to go!
