Benihana - Pittsburgh
Hot grill was filthy from previous cooking. Rice everywhere. Old oil spots. Overhead lamp was loose and then reattached with electrical tape and coming loose. Did they not think anybody looks around; checks out the place?
Chef and waiter were OK. My friend wanted to leave immediately after seeing how dirty the place was. I assured her that the chef would clean the grill prior to cooking for us but it was done “half-_____”
It was a overall good experience. Staff was nice and accommodating.
Dined hibachi for my birthday. Reserved table for 5 online. We had a very short wait before being seated. Chef and hostess was very nice. Food was delicious.
Great night at Benihana!
Great food, wait staff fantastic. Chef was talented
The service was great, as usual. Their food was not as good as normal this time ...very surprising. The biggest disappointment was that they raised their prices significantly. I guess they're trying to make up for CV19 losses. We "were" regulars. We used to go every 2-3 weeks. However, likely not going back for a long long time now.
My wife and I absolutely love it here, the best habachi hands down.
Awesome as usual!
We come here regularly and are huge fans! Splash and meadow with fried rice and extra shrimp sauce!
The food was excellent as always. I appreciated their steps to make the dine-in experience safe - masks were worn by all employees, admission was limited to 4 people every 15 minutes, so you have to reserve a slot; two people at either end of the table, so social distancing observed. To me, right now, that's very important.
It was nice to be back to dining in!
Great service and a fantastic Chef
Great experience for my kids.. everyone was very friendly..
as always it was great have been going to this location for over 30 years never dissappointed
The service was good and friendly. The cook was friendly and did a good job. The food is a bit pricey for what you get. I was glad you were open for my son's birthday (unlike the other hibachi restaurants due to Covid 19), but we were not able to use our coupon, because his birthday was on a Friday. Compared to other hibachi restaurants Benihana is very smokey/smelly.
Everyone here is so incredibly hospitable and welcoming. We never have a bad meal here!!!
The best hibachi steakhouse in my opinion in the Pittsburgh area. Our chef was awesome and cooked the food absolutely perfect! Best sauces and salad dressings as well. My only complaint is I need to shower when I get home, smell like grease/food!!
Maybe it was due to Covid, but it seemed to be somewhat disorganized. We loved Chong as usual as she is on top of things and treats us like family not just another customer. Tam was our chef and I think he needs to have more participation with his guest. Although he was nice, he did seem a little flustered. We normally ask for Tyson however he had a family emergency and had to leave early, so maybe I have a tendency to compare him to other chefs a lot.
We will absolutely be back
Our chef was terrific and prepared just as we ordered
Food was amazing,chef was friendly & creative.kids were entertained and experience was awesome as usual
My husband, son, and I celebrated my birthday at Benihana’s. We had a Blast! The food was delicious. Hoy, our table chef was very pleasant. We enjoyed hearing about his country and family members.
Our service was so impeccable; we didn’t even need to ask for anything! Our excellent server just kept our drinks refilled and made sure we had everything we wanted!
Took my girlfriend to Benihana for her birthday! It was her first time AND shes vegetarian (and picky...Lol) She got the tofu steak hibachi and loved it. She also had enough for leftovers the next day bc the servings are huge. I ate all my steak and chicken though- as always. Our server, cook and busboy were all extremely attentive and we even got to talk to the GM while waiting for our table! I will back for my dozenth time and my girlfriends 2nd very soon...
Always more than happy at our favorite restaurant!
Great food and wonderful staff.
Service and food was good. Cost value is higher than other comparable restaurants.
Fernando is always a great cook. They changed their rules to the birthday coupons. Which I wasn’t happy but. The food and cook was good
What a difference since Covid 19. Still the same good food, but the noise level was down and we were the only two people at the table.
We had an amazing time! It was my birthday dinner! Would recommend to everyone!
Benihana always was a good experience. This most recent experience was the best yet!
The Rocky's Choice was great. Chef cooked my steak perfect. My favorite place to eat
Our waiter was very attentive. This was by far the best visit we have ever had. Thank you so much Jack.
Outstanding meal made better by permitting us to hang around a bit longer. We were meeting friends returning home for a visit and the folks at Benihana gave us as much time as we needed to enjoybour meal and conversation! Much appreciated!
Brandon was our server and he was excellent! He gave our son special attention and it was well appreciated! Most of the time taking a young child out to eat is difficult, but he really made it smooth by being so kind and flexible. Thanks!
Great chef good service
Friendly waitress . Gentle man cook .
Maintained Covid-19 rules.
Food was delicious
We had a GREAT family dinner!!! Thank you so very much for taking the time to socially distanced the tables and our server was adorable in her mask. Really appreciated the extra effort!!! You were our first venture out and we were really impressed!! Thank you.
This was my husband's first trip to Benihana. We frequently go to other Japanese steak houses. The chicken fried rice was superb. The soup was awesome. We both had the Samurai Treat and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. Our chef was very entertaining. He did tricks and cooking techniques which we had never seen by other Hibachi chefs. We will definitely be going back!!!
I lived in Okinawa Japan for six years. Benihana's atmosphere, smells, sounds, and tastes bring me right back to some beautiful hibachi memories. Having seafood, steaks, and veggies grilled up fresh right at the table makes your mouth water while you enjoy the chef in action. Super menu, reasonable prices, delicious tastes! Don't wait, make a reservation ASAP!
So much fun and great food
