Benihana - Ontario Ratings and Reviews
always a great time, I get a little discouraged when I don't get an Asian chef. Although the chefs are okay I feel as if i.missed out on a total Hanna experience when I get a white or Hispanic chef. It's not a race thing or anything like that these guys know what they're doing I just prefer a full experience. The service is always top notch and the drinks are always dialed in same every time we go. So hats off to Hanna
Our first server was sent on break after she took our drink order. The replacement took about 15-20 mins to get our drinks delivered and order taken. The drinks came out wrong. When it was time for our meal to be cooked the replacement server got at least 4 out of the 8 peoples order wrong. Bad first impression. On top of that it was so cold inside we had to keep our large jackets on, and my daughter was freezing, finally we asked the manager to fix it, and he did, but it just wasn't a great experience. I will continue to go to Shogun in Corona, better options, food is better, and it's closer to my home.
The chef over cooked the food. The chicken was very crunchy and my steak was supposed to be medium well but it was well my wife's was supposed to be well and it was brutally burnt. One person at the table ordered extra mushrooms and then didn't get it so he had to make those separate from that person's food. The chefs we asked for was either Eric or Joseph but neither one were available. Probably the worst food I've ever had at Benihana. You spend $150 for four people expect your chef to be able to get it right.
Our server and chef where AMAZING!!! Erick was professional and friendly with my family. I had reservations and was there 20 minutes before and had to wait another 20 minutes past my reservation time, host service and manager HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. Once seated situation changed 100%
The steaks were almost falling apart. I ordered a second rice and received a quarter of one. They said they would bring it and i actually was charged for it.
The other guest were Benihana employees and were a little rude to us and very impolite with the server because they were in a hurry, I mean it’s not a fast food restaurant.
Adrian was our chef I must say I have not been to the restaurant in a year I had a very bad experience with the previous chef who was new I found out after speaking to the manager and she told me since that was not a pleasant experience and we had spent a lot of money that night that she would send a gift card as a invite to say sorry and come back out well I never received anything not even a card so I was kinda threw with the restaurant but honestly Adrian made such a great dinner for my birthday and was so nice and our guy that assisted Adrian was great as well they made me say where have they been all my visits they redeemed my poor experience from before 10 times over. Thank u Adrian and the young man that helped him on November 30th you both were great.
Me and our friends went to benihana on 11/30 to celebrate my husband's and their son's birthday. It was their first time there and we had been there before so we kept hyping up that the show was very cool. Unfortunately, we had what seemed like a new young chef named I think Fernando. Anyway, he didn't introduce himself he just started tossing around a spatula and meat fork when suddenly the meat fork goes flying and almost hits our friend's wife and falls to the floor. He nervously went to go get and said he had to leave to clean it. I think that incident affected the rest of the performance because it just seemed very flat and he wasn't animated at all. So overall it just lacked what we know to be a Benihana experience especially since our friends being their first time there just didn't seem impressed instead they said they should have gone to Wabi Sabi a similar restaurant by them. Then as we were parting ways and leaving they said I thought my meal came with green tea. I assured them it did but the servers never bothered to mention it, bring it and or ask them when they wanted it. Needless to say this visit fell short of ours and our friends expectations.
My son chose Benihana for his 16th birthday. It's usually a fun experience. It was actually BORING. The chef didn't really do anything fun. Our server did a good job of keeping drinks refilled and clearing the dishes. The food was good, as always. Hopefully our next experience will be better!
Our food was overcooked! Rubber chicken and beef jerky.... Chef was rude to both my guest and myself. Our portions were smaller than the other guests, to the point that the couple next us commented on it. Yet, Chef Michael went out of his way to please a female guest that apparently was a regular.
Not sure I'll be returning anytime soon. And I do plan to speak to management regarding this matter.
Very disappointed, they have cut portions in half on the salad and soup. It seemed as if the chef had to scrimp on everything including the fried rice! The chicken fried rice was tasteless. The vegies were left in very large pieces that hardly cooked and the mushrooms were very minimal for the whole table. The only thing good about our experience was the steak which was tender and flavorful.
I have been a Benihanna customer for over 30 years... Not sure I will be back! :(
ERIK our cook was beyond amazing ; he put on an amazing show and it was a great first expierence. However after our cook was done with his part I felt like we were being rushed out by our waiter ; he kept asking if we were ready , and if we needed boxes and brought our bill out right away and I honestly didn’t feel comfortable eating after and in the end the waiter did not bring our tea; unfortunely i didn’t get his name but our cook was GREAT if we go back it’s because our cook was amazing.
Manager and bartender sucked !
Forgot envelope with $2600 in it on table .
Returned to get it 10 min later it was gone . No help from manager to solve problem or even look at cameras. Bus boy only one to clean table . Manager seen me pay with money from envelope . Go at your own risk
1 hour after reservation time to take the dinner order is far too long especially for families with children. Our party of 7 with a 6 and 7 year old didn't eat until almost 10:00 and reservation at 8:30. The manager took 10%off our bill but that's list revenue to the restaurant that shouldn't have to happen. The chef was a sloth nice man but dude move. Interact. Smile have fun. It wasn't a bad night by any stretch just a very long wait to eat and by then I was too tired to even enjoy it. Great lunch next day and we will be back
The food and service were and are regularly exceptional. We've been coming to this location for years now and are very satisfied with the overall experience. The interior does seem to be a bit neglected however. There have been some additions over the years, but other element are very dated, including the bathrooms.
