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.

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.

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

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...

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!

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!

Delicious food with a fun dining experience! Chefs prepare the food in front of you while doing a few tricks. Wait staff are on top of things - I don't think I ever had less than half a glass of iced tea in front of me.

Consistently great service and delicious food! My only recommendation would be to offer happy hour specials throughout the restaurant instead of just the bar. It was not particularly busy when we arrived 5.. and the other people at our table got up to order from the bar anyway (though that clearly is not the intention by having that rule). Thanks for a great dinner!
