I was extremely excited to try out Benihana because of the hype surrounding the name but ended up extremely disappointed with the food specifically.

I went here for my birthday and i had to wait 40 minutes before came out to serve me and my party and i also was missing items from my 5 course entree i didn't get fried rice i got regular white rice, i didn't get any green tea at the end of my meal. Yet every party around received the complete 5 course entree and when i complained to manager about my issues he just basically ignored me and told me i don't get special priviledges and even if i didn't get all my items in 5 course meal i still got to pay the same amount as all the other parties even though i didn't receive everything in the 5 course meal.

My reservation was for 10:45 pm and you all should close things down after the last people in the restaurant that orders because when I was there the bars were closed and my waiter stated you all were out of a lot of things.

Our server was very rude. The restaurant is not following COVID-19 recommendations, they’re utilizing paper menus!

Food was just OK. Nothing remarkable. There was much confusion with the hostess and seating. We felt like we were an inconvenience. At the table, service was not very attentive.

When I went there, it wasn't as good as it normally is. I ordered sushi (which was good) and a side of chicken fried rice. The chicken fried rice did not have any flavor and when watching the cook make it, he gave me the scraps that were left on the grill because he forgot what I ordered. It also did not help that the couple sitting at the table felt the need to offer their food to me as if I couldnt afford getting all of hibachi. Normally, my food is good when I go to Benihana but when I went recently, it was unsatisfactory.

We visited a Benihana in Columbus, Ohio and the experience was fantastic. The Lombard Benihana was just okay. The sauces were really thin. The chef seemed preoccupied and wasn’t very engaging. The food he prepared was delicious, but his showmanship was lacking.

We had an absolute great time! Food was as delicious as it always is, our chef was so talented and everything was socially distanced and felt safe. We weren’t sure what to expect with social distancing in effect, but we shared a table with one other family, they sat at the complete opposite end from us about 6 feet apart. Once we arrived at the table, masks could come off. The chef wore his mask the entire time along with gloves while cooking. Can’t wait to go back!
