    Great experience with our chef and enjoyed the other diners at our table. Food tasted fresh and excellent. The noise was loud, but that is to be expected at a hibachi. Go on a night not to crowded...we went Valentine's weekend and the wait was very long.

    When the grill was cleaned before the meal with a metal screen the food had a metal taste to it. Benihana prices are getting very expensive as it is and to taste like metal from grill screen is unacceptable. My Girlfriend felt sick and we had to leave in a rush so didnt have time to bring up. I have spent alot of money at benihana in the past and wont be returning anytime soon.

    My partner and I felt very uncomfortable the whole time we was there. The waitress wasn’t lgbt friendly and showed us through her actions. Giving us dirty looks throughout the experience. Purposely not getting us our beverages and completely ignoring us when we did decide to speak up. It was embarrassing say the least. The chef literally asked us was we lovers then proceeded to make gay jokes. Also asking inappropriate questions, but when it came to the other couples, the questions was different. Overall terrible experience. Nonetheless I still left a decent tip because I’m not ignorant. Will never go back though.

    Service at bar is exceptional. However, cost versus food is not even remotely close to a good value. Clearly the fried rice was different and not nearly the quality that we have come to expect. Shrimp sauce was more like a plop of mayonnaise than the regular shrimp sauce. Shame to see these - what are probably cost cutting measures- so strongly affect what was once a quality product. We will drive the extra few miles to hit a different hibachi restaurant versus continuing to overpay at your establishment

    My experience here was terrible, I brought my significant other out for valentines day and everything was bad. We got charged for stuff we didn’t order, we both said no vegetables and they kept giving us vegetables, and we didn’t order chicken fried rice but got 3 orders of it. i spoke with the manager, he sent me to someone else and he only took off one. overall bad experience.

    Overall we had a great meal. Found out that each chef has a different way of cooking the food. First time that we got our Fried Rice and mushrooms last. Normally that's the first we get. We come 3-4 times a year to celebrate birthdays. It took a while for the assistant to come take our drink and food order. She apologized as she didn't know people were seated in her section. But after that, all was good.

    Clean, well decorated, great ambience. Cheerful people welcomed us immediately. Our server was very well mannered and happy, efficient. We appreciated him. Our chef was amazing! He did a fantastic job preparing our food right in front of us and it was delicious. Our server returned several times to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We would highly recommend visiting! If we lived closer, we'd make it a regular trip!

    The waitress taking orders and refilling drinks was seldom seen once the chef arrived. Chef was not on his A game. We had him as a chef before and he was great. This time he forgot to do the volcano and head to send someone for more onions. Forgot our extra vegetables order and shared one of the tables guests chicken dinner with everyone and forgot her meal. Had to have a runner get chicken and prepare the meal. Overall not the best experience and we usually love Benihana

    This place is wildly expensive. The food is good, but not outstanding. A few other hibachi places do it better for a more reasonable price. Our chef was skilled, but not amazing. My wife had a coupon for $30 off, and all-in (with taxes, 20% tip) we still spent $70 on a shrimp hibachi meal and a filet hibachi meal. No drinks. No appetizers. So it would’ve been $100 for two people without the coupon. When we got the check we were stunned at the $6 per person up-charge for getting fried rice instead of white rice. It’s a hibachi. Isn’t fried rice a given? Somehow, however, this place still packs them in. It was crowded and our meal took 2 hours, from sitting down to getting up. Too long for what it is.

    Tyson was the best chef I’ve ever had at Benihana, from his hospitality to how interactive and kind he was with my entire family, including the kids. He explained all of the food to them including answering their questions. We also had a problem with the table getting hot, so he moved us to a nearby table, as well as getting the manager to come and talk to us. Henry was very accommodating and stopped by several times to make sure we were satisfied. Also the waitress, we had made my wife’s birthday feel “special” as she was very caring and attentive. I’ve worked in the restaurant field social my whole life so I know good service and what we received was great service! Tyson should be promoted in some way shape or form!! I’ve been coming to Benihana for years and he is what every guest should see and taste when they eat there! I don’t often give reviews but the three of them deserve to be mentioned and given appraisal!!!! I can’t say enough about the experience my family had there last night, on 1/18/2024 at the Pittsburgh location. The Yost family

    I would not recommend this restaurant. We have been coming here for over 20 years and it has continued to go downhill. I believe this visit last night will be our last. Our waitress was terrible, food mediocre, and prices keep rising. It’s a shame, it used to be a fabulous place to come and the chefs were always entertaining. Not anymore.

    We normally like to come to Benihana to celebrate our birthdays. The food is ok but not worth what we pay for it. We told our server that it was our daughter’s birthday and they didn’t sing, give her birthday dessert or take a family pick. I feel like this experience has gone down hill and I will most likely choose somewhere else to celebrate my birthday in March.

    The service chef, food and waitress were wonderful. We all loved it. But we all hated being sat with a family of 3 we did not know. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and they another other family wasn’t friendly and put a damper on the evening. We were clapping and having fun and they were serious. It made it awkward for us and that is why we wont return. Its like having wedding crashers.

    I wish I could give this place a zero. It's like as if they didn't even try, care, etc. The manager was just as terrible as his staff. We waited forever, the waitress couldn't be more clueless or rude--literally did not get one single thing about our table's order right. I swear I thought we were being punked. This place has gone completely downhill. The food was good, but the chef couldn't care less about his presentation or engaging with the table. The one upside...there was a young man helping our table (because our completely incompetent and careless waitress couldn't be bothered), and I asked him if he could help get me my water (that I asked the waitress for 3 times at this point, an hour in). He came right back with it. How hard is that? Back to the food...the hoods don't work, so the place stunk like oil and smoke, and I almost threw out my clothes when I got home. 3 hours later. Because we waited 35 minutes just for our checks. At that point I got up to go to the bathroom and the dotard wait staff were hanging out and playing on their phones. At this point, I went to the worthless manager who made excuses (literally said their system was down, yet came back 2 seconds later with my check..?), and didn't even bother to apologize to the other half of the table who was not with us/going through the same thing. I don't expect perfection, but I do expect someone to care. I will tell everyone I know to stick to the million other--better--options, like Ichiban, Fusion, etc. Benihana, you may have a name established around here from back in the day when you were actually good, but remember, you're not the only hibachi place in town anymore. I will never go back, and I will tell everyone/anyone willing to listen about what dumpster fire this place has turned in to. Shame on all of you.
