Everything was very organized. The food portions we're large, but deliscious! The waiter was great, but the chef was amazing & showed some skilled "tricks" with the spatulas & cooking utensils. There was plenty to take home also. It was well worth the time & experience.

We hadn't been to Benihaha in quite a while. We decided to revisit for a family birthday. We found the portions to be much smaller than in the past and the prices higher. And, for some of us the combination Hibachi platters that we wanted were only available with a dessert option added on. Since we had birthday cake at home, we didn't want the ice cream. The biggest disappointment was the "birthday celebration"....which was literally a single birthday candle handed to the birthday person. Why bother?! We probably will not return.

Great food with a chef who kept the table mesmerized by his skills. He was very engaging and kept all of the guests engaged as well. The food was outstanding, and the portions as always are very big, we took home a carry-out and ate and enjoyed day 2 as well!

Unfortunately the food made us both sick. The steak was undercooked and I watched the Chef use the apatchula on the mushrooms he was cooking with the meat I was served. The manager brought me a new meal, but it was too late. I'd already taken a bite of the undercooked meat. I want be returning unfortunately. I normally love benihana but this one not so much.

We have been to better Benihana locations. Food was fair. Chef was not a showman at all. waitress needs more training. overall nothing horrible but he have had better Benihana experiences in Florida.

Very disappointed- the guys who cooked did no performance- the waitress was terrible- the steak was so small mostly fat - poor quality- the noodles were terrible- the only good was the soup. The salad had brown lettuce- sushi was good.
Will not be back here ever

Chef was engaging and prepared the meal perfectly. Server was attentive and friendly. We don’t have Benihana near us anymore, so was nice to take advantage when we were coming through Pittsburgh.

Food was at best OK ! Very little seasoning and way over cooked veggies.

Chief was so tattooed, looked as if he just got out of a long stay in jail.

Not the Benihana I once loved !

We have been going to the Benihana in Greentree for years. We have never had a bad meal. The calamari is the freshest and tastiest that you will find in Pittsburgh. This is one of our favorite restaurants!

The chef was very personable and did a nice job. Here are the things I wasn't pleased with:
- the restaurant was hot. Air conditioning wasn't working properly on a very hot evening.
- the restaurant didn't seem clean.
- the waiter wasn't at all attentive. He was rushed and acted like our party was a bother.
- the food wasn't very good.
- the prices have gone up and the quality of the food has gone down.

We won't be coming back again.

This is the second time that Jeffery has been my server and both times he'd been an absolute jerk. he cuts you off when you're talking and waves his hands in your face. he'll disappear and not bring your drink refills, check, boxes, etc.

The restaurant wasn’t really busy but it still took about 25 minutes to get our soup and salad, our waitress was very unfriendly we had to go get our own refills from the bar since she never came around and when you did ask for something it felt like you were putting her out. I always had a great experience at the one in Anaheim California which is why I chose this for my birthday dinner. In the future i will go to Fusion

Food is excellent.... cooks always make everything just the way you like. Seating was a little crowded and it was a little too hot without much room to move.

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.

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.
