    First off, our waitress served us the sushi sampler entree when we specifically asked for the sushi sampler appetizer. When she finally came back I explained I ordered the appetizer. She said they don’t have a sushi sampler appetizer? I retrieved a menu to verify. I showed her the item in question and she apologized stating she would discount the entree to the price of the appetizer. Awesome, but once I paid and looked over the receipt in my car I noticed I was charged full price ughhh. Also all the seafood in my meal (Ocean Treasure) was over cooked… I come to Benihana at least monthly and this was the worst experience yet.

    The chef made it the best. We had Michael and he was the best we have had so far I’m going to Benihana. The server was also very attentive. The young man that made my drink at the bar needs training. The drink was awful and we waiting for a prolonged period for our eggs rolls in which I think he forgot to place the order at the time we were in the bar waiting for a table. Dinner was great and the chef the best. The bar was only bad experience.

    I rated my experience on! first I placed this reservation months ago I asked for a particular chef, and was told no the second waitress was nasty. The chef did a great job. Food was excellent. His appearance could’ve been better. He needs to clean up a little bit more on his appearance. The bathroom was nasty and had a toilet that wasn’t working and to ask us to pay extra for teriyaki sauce that should go along with the meal it’s ridiculous! This was one of the nicest Benihana‘s, but after yesterday l see that you guys values for customer service went down a whole lot your employees walk around with tattoos and earrings hanging out of there nose you guys need to do better when it comes To your dress code it’s not a good look!! This was my husband 70th birthday and our 30th anniversary and I wanted it to be special. That’s why I chose this place. Thank you!

    Sadly, the quality of Benihana in Ontario has gone down over the years. This particular location is outdated and dirty. The service is subpar and the whole experience feels rushed. I wanted to enjoy the experience but simply couldn’t. I hope this location improves on service and overall experience for their guests.

    We had an annoying couple that kept talking at the table. They kept on hounding our chef, Erick. As the night went on, they got more drunk and couldn’t shut up. They annoyed the 6 others at the table.

    We absolutely love Benihana Ontario. The staff and managers are so kind and attentive. All the chefs are excellent. Whenever we go we prefer Chef Adrian because he already knows how we like our food and never have to tell him anything. It probably helps that we order the same thing every time. The food is always amazing and so delicious.

    Our chef Adagio really made the night special for my aunt's birthday. He was fun, energetic and accommodating. We were surprised to learn that he had such a beauful singing voice. He sung several songs to our group, including a special birthday request. Good vibes, good food and good drinks.

    We had a 4:15 reservation time, weren't seated until 4:45 and Chef did not come to the table until 5:30. In talking to the Chef, he remarked that they only had 13 Chefs for 22 tables which is why it was taking longer. Server was slow probably due to workload but was hard to get drinks. Ended up going to the bar to get a drinks on our own. I have gone to Benihana's quite a few times and have to say the experience is no longer worth the food. Unlikely to go back. Just beware that they're not staffing and instead of enjoying an experience you'll be paying just to wait around.

    I do recommend Benihana's restaurant! It has been about 2 years since we last visited and long overdue. We were surprised that the menu prices did rise...upwards of $13 on some items. Chef show remains the same, nothing really that impressed my 6y old but overall a good experience. Food was good and table company was friendly. The noise level was more than I recall, there were more families dining with smaller children. The noise was enough for my 6y old to make mention of it and that says allot!

    The chef we got to cook our food served most of our dishes over cooked and burnt. I hated the yakisoba noodles, too much sweet sauce and no flavor. The fried rice was like bitting on pieces of rock from the overcooking and burning from the chef. I always heard Benihana’s was great and a competitor to Shogun, but the quality of the service and food does not top Shogun at all. My first time coming here and it was an absolute nightmare.

    Our server disappeared for an extreme long period. Our soups and salads came out late and our bar drinks as well. Had to ask on our drinks and had to ask about our salads, soups and rice. Despite the long wait to get some of our food items…the waitress didn’t seem to care. She could have at least asked us and the other couple sitting with us for a free dessert or something to compensate the long wait.

    Over the past several years the Ontario restaurant has been going in the wrong direction. The quality of the food, and overall service has become poor to average at best. I've been bringing my family to this restaurant since it first opened, and the present product is a far cry from what it once was. We try to be patient with the new, inexperienced chefs, but can't help but feel as though we are the subjects of someone who is still learning their craft, and paying more money for everything as well. Lunch at Benihana used to be a great value, especially during the weekends, however lunch is no longer served on weekends! Now we've learned that vegetable fried rice is no longer a part of the meal, there's a charge for it now. Our takeaway from out last several visits to Benihana has been that we no longer enjoy coming to Benihana as much as we used to. There are still a few of the veteran staff there, and they are great, but we rarely seem to be lucky enough to get served by them. No one wants to spend two and a half to three hours at an establishment for lunch. Especially for a poor to average meal.
