Benihana - Pittsburgh
Very good food - expensive but good. -Restaurant was too hot! And took a while to get food!
Excellent service and outstanding food!
Birthday dinner. Ian, our chef, was wonderful as always!
Was disappointed that apparently they don’t sing happy birthday anymore? Usually hibachi is a fun place to go for birthdays. They even asked us upon arrival if there was any special occasion but I’m not sure why since it wasn’t acknowledged. Food was very good, just disappointed with the lack of birthday celebration.
We didn't sit at the hibachi because we wanted to save time on our lunch break. It ended up being slower up top and the food tasted off. Whoever was cooking in back doesn't like seasoning the food.
Food was great!
Service was great
Everything was great
Fabulous as always! Food and service were great. We Will definitely return!
Very nice employees, very good food. I love going there. Our group attends at least 6 times a year for dinner and at least 4 times a year for lunch.
Are waiter was horrible, me and my family were disappointed with his overall attitude. The chef at the table was great, my daughter loved the show he put on.
We've been to Bennihana numerous times and have always had superior experiences. This last visit was one of the best visits we have ever had.
First time going there for my birthday! Food was amazing! Our cook, Colin was absolutely amazing! Would definitely come back and would request him again!
First time going and our cook was awesome! He really made our experience a good time! Will definitely be back
It was a typical visit. nothing stood out or anything. Food was good.
We absolutely LOVE this place and celebrate a lot of our birthdays and other "big" moments here.
Went to Benihana’s a month ago everything was great. Returned with another group and it was awful. Service was slow, wasn’t offered tea and other items, sauces were not made correctly and tasted terrible. When I mentioned to staff all that was said was sorry.
We visit Benihana often for special occasions and this day we were celebrating my son's birthday. However, we did not feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door.
First of all, the server did not smile once, she was abrasive and unapproachable. The chef usually arrives at the table 10-15 mins after the soup and salad. Our chef did not arrive for more than 30 mins.
Lastly, we were not offered green tea after the meal or even a photo to be taken of our group. Overall, it was a disappointing visit.
The food was bland and flavorless, as always, we were celebrating my fathers bday and this is where he wanted to go. I prefer Ichiban, they give you more food, the food is MORE flavorful and it's not as costly.
Food was delicious. Our cook, Elvis, was awesome! And our server was equally as awesome! Will be back for sure!
Beni Hana in Pittsburgh has gone down hill considerably over the past few years. The type of new employees that are employed there are not well trained, have attitudes, and are just plain unhelpful. We were there on a Saturday night, it took 20 minutes after our entire party was there (at 930 at night) to get sat, then when we got to the table it took another 15 minutes to have a server come to get our drink orders. Just very sad when I can remember how wonderful of a venue it used to be and now it is sometimes not even worth going to.
Chef and waiter were both great. Super attentive, very funny.
Benihana is my favorite restaurant and they did not disappoint. Food was delicious and service was great! I will be back :)
Portions weren’t worth the price. Communication between the cook and waitress were terrible. And the lady’s bathroom was DISGUSTING. Excuse my language but there’s s*** on the toilet, toilet paper all over the floor, and not even on the roll but the roll was sitting on the back of the sink smh. And the floor was so sticky it was nauseating. Won’t be returning to this particular location.
Place was very dirty. Walls covered in goop and table was very sticky.
Server was nice but not attentive
Server seemed agitated and was rude to the guests at our table. Seemed rushed when we ordered. Cook was awesome, saved dinner. Food was good but felt ill afterwards.
Very nice restaurant we always enjoy ourselves every time we visit.
We have been going there for over 20 years...always great food great service ...we're going back tonight 5-20....Yum
Always a good time and great food.
It was as expected. always great........................................................
They seemed a little short staffed, and we had to wait past our reservation time. The restaurant manager bought a round of drinks for the table to make up for it. The chef was a bit slow to get there, but the soup and salad was timely enough to make it a good experience. Tuesday (the waitress) was great!
Our chef was awesome..very entertaining and engaging. Great birthday dinner for my daughter. Just wish I knew how to access my Benihana account. I used my Verizon email to set it up and can no longer access my profile through Verizon to change my email address...help please
We went on Mother’s Day and it was a great experience. The food as always was yummy. I would give 5 stars but they really, really need to have better ventilation. It was so Smokey and cloudy. Other Japanese Steakhouses have better ventilation but Benihana has “cleaner” tasting food and have tremendous health department records...unlike all of the other ones around.
Great everything. Waiter was extremely nice and on top of everything. Defiantly be coming back
We had a great time. The food was fantastic. The chef's preparation was outstanding.
The chef barely spoke the whole time he was cooking. Some of my chicken was not cooked all the way. The chef did divide out the fried rice portions. There were two families at our table. Our family's rice bowls were not even full but the other family's bowls were over flowing. Chef did not really do anything special or perform any tricks. I was celebrating my birthday and it was a let down as far as chef quality.
Waitress wasnt friendly. Acted like she hated her job . Chef was awesome.
Our first time here. Great experience and great food!
So-so food that is expensive. Chefs don’t interact with diners much compared to other hibachi restaurants.
The food was delicious, however the price of a drink is ridiculously high.
Great food! Great service! Enjoy coming to celebrate our birthday's every year!
