Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you are a Chef's Tale member celebrating a birthday, please remember that you MUST print your birthday certificate prior to celebrating at Benihana. Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. Benihana Ontario is located near the intersection of I-10 and the 215 freeway, five minutes from Ontario International Airport, the Ontario Convention Center and Citizen’s Bank entertainment arena. The restaurant was designed to mimic the azekura-style, reminiscent of a Japanese country storehouse. An 18% service charge is added to all guest checks for parties of eight or more.

Disappointed with the food and experience for the 2nd time in a row. Although we had a free birthday meal, there were 5 others in our party and the food just doesn't measure up to the price. There are better choices close by so I think I'll skip the freebie next year.

Our cook was super nice , restaurant was clean there was a lot of kids that day so noise was a lot of crying from kids or them spilling stuff I even got a straw thrown at me from one of the kids at our table, food was so so it was under seasoned my steak had no flavor, my chicken rice had no flavor I got the trio my chicken was good. I just think going forward I will note on my reservations experienced cooks perf please so that way I get the whole experience our bill was about 130.00 for myself and my husband so it just would have been nice for our food to be great since we paid that amount.

Had 5:30 reservations, got seated at 6 p.m. due to Host making a mistake that we were already seated. The area we were seated at was not very clean, grill still had left over food on it from previous guests. Chef at our table was using a dirty towel over and over again to clean the grill, his apron was dirty, hat on crooked, dirty nails, no Chef Coat. Wondered if they brought out a prep cook to be a Grill cook that night. He had a good personality, but lacked cleanliness.

Chef couldn't cook very well. I ordered a filet, medium well. He burned my filet, asked someone to bring him another one but they brought a different cut, and he proceeded to over cook that one. Manager had a chef in back make my filet and when I finally got it, it was delicious. I guess 3rd times the charm. Chef also cooked the mushrooms first, but the zucchini and onions last for some reason. My wife ordered extra mushrooms, didn't get them. My kids both ordered kids meals which come with corn, he didnt even have corn with him. Had to ask someone to bring it. Cooked it last as well. Numerous other small things that bothered me that I would have put up with if the major things didn't occur. Manager did give us a discount off our bill. Worst experience ever at a Benihana but we will go back. We go every 6-8 weeks and with this one exception it's always fantastic.

Our chef Jimmy was not as great as other times but he was good.
Our server was missing a lot maybe to many tables. We waited a long time for our drinks and I was going to ask for an appetizer but change my mind because it wasn't full but the service was taking to long and We were asking other servers for refills.
On the Benihana trio the shrimp wasn't clean properly and it was overcooked, same as the chicken but the seasoning was ok.
It was a 17th birthday celebration not as special as we know it can be.
But overall good experience not great.

As always the food was terrific and we had a great time. The only negative thing I can say is that it takes long to be seated. We arrive 15 minutes before our reservation time and all of our party was there when we checked in. We did arrive early so that we would be seated at our reservation time. Yet we were not seated until 15 to 20 minutes after the time of our reservation and other groups were seated before us that actually had a later reservation. When we asked the hostess what the reason for the delay was she didn’t even seem to remember our name yet we have been standing in front of her since we check in . There were four hostesses at the front desk yet none of them seem to be knowing what they were doing they were running around and just rambling. Much better organization needs to happen at the front desk and seating people closer to their reservation time is a must.

The food is always good at Benihana. The enjoyment is in watching the chefs prepare the food on a grill; and often showing off skills and personalities.

We come here quite often and this time was just not as great. Usually we have a server that forgets things. This time our server was great but our chef spoke so low no one at the table could hear him. Also a negative was he left the fat on all the meat for everyone at our table. Everyone had to pick through it. Usually I crave my left overs when I get home or the next day but honestly the food was worse I’ve had at Benihana’s. And I love it here. It was just not a that great this time.

The server was awesome, she was warm funny and engaging. The cook was not so enthusiastic and skipped many opportunities to engage with the table. He missed a few plates with items (kids corn, mushrooms and shrimp). No one complained but this was a rookie move.
