Benihana - Columbus
6 New York strip steak and mushrooms hibachi grilled to your specification.
Green Tea Ice Cream
6 tenderloin and mushrooms lightly seasoned and grilled to perfection.
Great experience and the food was outstanding.
Went for my daughters birthday. Haven’t been for a while and wouldn’t specifically go back. Food was fine, but not great. I did like that they offered tuna for the hibachi.
Our party went for Sweetest Day and the food was good. Based on past experiences, our chef wasn’t engaging and seemed to be in a rush. Our waiter, John was awesome.
The food was awesome. Our cook had us engaged and was funny. The whole experience was great.
Food was excellent and Sam was a great chef!
The atmosphere and the food were good. I just always walk away wondering if the value was there for what you pay.
We were seated for twenty five minutes before they took our order some people got up to leave then our waiter was very slow and non proficient
Everyone was really nice and professional. Our cook and food was awesome’
We had a great time celebrating a birthday! Would definitely recommend.
Food was absolutely amazing...10/10 would recommend
Food was good
Waited over 20 minutes to be seated for our reservation, with empty tables and no one else waiting to be seated. Waitress did the best she could, was working all the tables by herself. Our appetizers came out about the same time as our food, which wasn’t good. Chef was great and food was great also.
It was just eh not that good
Wonderful experience. Cook was great food was great.
Super nice great people working there, chiefs were all awesome good interaction with everyone.
It was a great treat and good experience with service and food
Dissatisfied with service and food. Did not receive complete order. The chef also did not prepare order as requested.
Everything was amazing and felt very safe during the pandemic!
This is a fun place to dine. They use a large table for 4 people to make sure there is enough distance in between.
We have traditional dined at Benihana every year for our son's birthday. It is his favorite! He turned 21 this year and as usual requested Benihana. I made reservations stating it was a birthday celebration. We ordered sushi for appetizer and entree.. and my son ordered a mixed drink in celebration of turning 21. His drink finally showed up half way through eating our entree. The service was extremly slow. The chef cooking for us did none of the usual "show". The food portions were not the "normal" portions. There were barely any vegtables and they were cut extremely fine. They did not sing happy birthday or take the traditional photo. I am not sure if that was due to "covid"..? Overall, it was not our usual happy birthday celebration. The atmosphere seemed very gloom and doom. I am hoping that they were just having an off day or are not operating "as usual" due to the covid crisis. Regardless of the situation it was not a pleasant experience.
Went for special shopping day with grand daughter. We had a wonderful time and it was great social distancing. Thanks!
The food was excellent and the chef, Chu, was excellent and very entertaining as he prepared our food.
We arrived on time for our reservations. We were seated quickly, however it took some time to get drinks and then again some more time before order taken and food was cooked. The food was good.
It was about a 45 minute wait between when we sat down and when we received the first course salad and soup. The interior somewhat looked like they were in the middle of a remodel. I thought the food was too heavily salted. If I'm choosing between Benihana and House of Japan, I'm going with House of Japan every time.
Got sick from food same day within the hour. Would not recommend
The food was excellent as I have come to expect. I was celebrating two kids birthdays. The chef's food was enjoyable but I am used to a much more lively and interactive chef - almost a performance and this experience was very utilitarian. The waitress brought our soup/salad/drinks and never came again. I had to go find a bus boy and ask him to find someone to refill our drinks. We ordered the 6 course meal with icecream and the check was left with no mention of dessert; again I had to ask for service. Dinner tasted delicious but not worth the $300 we spent for the table for the mediocre service. Take out Asian cuisine would have done the trick.
Great experience and great service/food. Our chef was awesome - Domino, I believe.
The cook must have been new, the food was bland. The host double sat the waiter in our section. Philip, the waiter had poor customer service, didnt come back for refills after 20 mins, etc and was DISRESPECTFULLY rude when I asked questions about my bill. When I complained to the manager he apologized and said Philip will no longer be employed there so clearly that wasnt the first incident. We shall see if that statement is actually true or not..
As a frequent patron, I know or thought I knew, the high standard they displayed and expected in their staff. Nonetheless, I was highly disappointed in ALL the service received.l during this visit.
This is the only location near me and I truly love their food, I will see how my next visit go before I cancel them for good from my restaurant favs list.
Everything was good except we where sat and ordered drinks before we where informed that we could not have sushi. That was disappointing after a long wait to get a table when half our family only wanted sushi.
We usually request chief Ethan but he wasn’t there we we requested Sam and he did not let us down the food was great! The waiter was a little slow on refills and I had to remind him about my husband’s sushi but over all good service
Service was good and attentive. Sam was very entertaining. Food was good.
Nice family time. A little pricy but the family loved it.
Food was perfect, chef was funny, server was nice and polite and never let the drinks get below half!
Benihana never disappoints even with Covid-19 food server and cook was excellent. Thank you for helping us celebrate my nieces 5th birthday
Great experience and the food was amazing!! Great way to celebrate my birthday. I will definitely visit again.
My food was nasty and also felt like it was rushed cook. It paid $80.00 and that is ridiculous.

Chef clearly not happy to be there. Hardly spoke or interacted with guests. Depressing experience given the $130 bill for 3 people to dine.

The service was great
Service was slow and compared to other Hibachi grills was very overpriced. Portions were small service stunk 20 minute wait for drinks every time. Even though it was not crowded
