Called in for a reservation, was told there were none available. Came on opentable got one within the hour. Don't know why that is, but glad I did it. Was seated upon arrival even earlier than reservation. Dinner was great.
Great graduation celebration. Good food, good service, good time.
Food was delicious as always
Good food and great service.
Food was excellent, and made to order for your taste.
Benihana is our go-to for special occasions and they did not disappoint for Mother’s Day. Three generations from grandparents to grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed their meals! Only one small issue was that our time felt a little rushed. The waitress was coming over trying to get our ice cream orders and give us boxes- only 5 minutes after all the food was cooked. She caught on to our body language telling her we weren’t done and stopped pestering. Overall, another great meal.
Very good experience. Will come back for other special occasions.
This is our 3rd time going. The chef wasn’t as entertaining as we have had in the past which was a bit disappointing since we were there specifically for my daughters 12th Birthday. The food was a saltier than usual. I personally don’t feel it’s worth the money but for a special occasion it’s where my daughter wanted to go.
Very nice, our cook was amazing I will be back soon!
Very good food all the time. Would have said excellent on this visit but our waiter was new and could get many tricks right. Food needed a little more flavor. Steaks keep getting thinner too
Always love our visits
May daughters steak was spoiled.
Our chef performed one trick and then just cooked our food. It was my son’s birthday and I noted that in my reservation. No recognition in any way was made. I can get mediocre, overpriced stir fry anywhere. All Benihana has going for it is entertainment value and on this they completely failed. After having eaten at the chain for 30 years I have finally realized they do not need my business anymore.
PS. If your chef is Alex, request someone else.
awesome place! i took my date out to this place and we had a great time.
I love the food at this place. Would go more often if I had a coupon other than birthday. Not cheap but fantastic food.
Always a fun place to celebrate a bday! Great food and great service!
Great place as always. One of my favorite places to go.
Fun time with my granddaughters! Great food and great service!
Food was great, cook was awesome! Definitely enjoyed myself!
Birthday. Great time.
The food was bland. Literally just salt pepper and butter. It was a lot for not that good of quality.
Everything was great. Just wish people would put down cell phones at the table and socialize. I understand it’s strangers sitting with you, but still... common sense.
Overall, had s great time.
Enjoy every time we visit and the food is delicious to our tummies! It’s our birthday tradition!
Fun and great food
This was my first experience, I have eaten at other Hibachi style restaurant that were less expensive yet just as good! Dining experience for me was just ok nothing extremely different. Since we shared the table with a family of five our food got kind of cool waiting! Again it was good....
Food prepared the way it was requested. All the staff was very friendly and welcoming. This time we dined in the bar and had an excellent server. She has only been working there a short time and we were very pleased with her.
Was our 1st time (all four of us) we live in Chicago, so we drove to Lombard...Because of the great reviews.
It was my 13yr Old neices birthday. We where extremely excited, and we wanted to experience the chef table. Walked in, walked to a open chef's table, with one other guest so far. She comes to Benihana quite often, she said. She actually helped up make sence of everything. Being our 1st time, kinda overwhelmed.
We wanted to order stuff to be cooked and entertaining.... By the chefs skills.
Two more people joined the table.. So we expected, much entertainment. We ordered, your Mai Thai specialty cocktails... And they were pretty average.
Also so tempora, we ok. Soup and salad was really good. Our main dishes were ok, the side sauces, made them better.
I think next time, I go I'll have a better feeling for the place and how to order.
Was very sweet how the sang happy birthday to my neice... We also didn't know about tipping the chef (but found money, during our meal) so we could thank him.
Also a different server came, for our dessert order and give us the bill...one of our guests did not have a dinner, wasn't offended a options to get anything. We just shared with her.
Anyway it was a little confusing as to who are tip was actually going to hopefully the gentleman who started off taking care of us got some of that.
Place is beautiful and clean (bathroom could use some love) but overall we enjoy our 1st time. Maybe the host could talk to guests, see if they are familiar with the protocol for an overall better experience.
Birthday celebration was a family tradition and everything was very tasty and service excellent.
Only bad thing bar closed to early on a Thursday night
I didnt know exactly what to expect before coming here. I got send $30 voucher for my birthday so I thouht why not. We made resevations before hand because I heard it was super busy which it was even for a wednesday night. Our party had a child and they had booster seats, and coloring pages to keep him preoccupied. The service was AWESOME! I didnt grab our servers name but she checked on us constantly. The hibachi part was cool but you could tell the chef had done it so many times by his face and he wasnt really into it. The tricks were still fun though. The food and drinks were FANTASTIC! It was my bday so they sang to me and also took and gave us a framed picture to take home.
The cook was AWESOME, he was very entertaining!
Lunch Combo Duet portion size was extremely small.
Passion Fruit Mango drink was exceptional!
food was just ok...salad dressing not good...staff was very nice and very good have had way better food at another spot with much better flavor and not as expensive . would not go back here but i am glad i tried it and now i know better
Shrimp was delicious. Enjoy watching the "show" especially since this has been going on for over 25 years. Our cook appeared as though this was his millionth time. I'm sorry for that.
When I went here I really enjoyed myself and the whole experience, but the only thing was I didn’t like my main course. Wasn’t bad it just wasn’t my taste. I just felt shy asking for something else because I just saw the chef make it right in front of me and I didn’t want to insult him. Overall it’s a nice place I don’t think I’d be returning though.
I was able to adjust my reservation when a couple extra guests were added. Table was ready on time. For the most part we had a good time aside for the very rude staff. Not inviting and not as happy as we had hoped. Too many attitudes for customer service. If it wasn’t for the show and the fact that the reservation went through, the night would’ve been complete crap.
Fantastic chef! Made it fun for my younger guests and the food was amazing! A+.
Enjoyed everything about it. Definitely coming back.
Great food, excellent customer service, great drinks, fast service.
They make you sit next to a bunch of strangers you have to sit so close together there's no elbow room everything was good except there seating arrangement
The guy who prepared our food was very nice and smiling all the time. The food was serve as it was cooked however ... wanting to get all my food before eating made the food prepared earlier .. very cold. The rice was OK but the shrimp appetizers were somewhat chewy...
Over all it good and would go this place again.
