I usually have a great experience when going to Benihana; however, this time was different. The chef messed up several times on our order and was not apologetic about it at all. It was a couple people birthday at the table and they didn't provide all the perks such as picture taking that Benihana is known for. It was my birthday so needless to say it was not a happy experience. I did write in to the manager and got a quick response on how they will do better next time.

Our Chef was awesome and the food was great. Our waitress was not good. She started by asking if we've been to Benihana before and when we said no she said nothing or did nothing to explain the process. Why ask? Her overall attentiveness was non existent and we had to constantly had to ask for things.

Gary, one of the managers, was awesome!! Very accommodating! Helped us celebrate our daughter’s 13th birthday with her friends and worked to make it perfect! Thanks so much! We love the Schaumburg location the best! Juan, our chef, was just the best!!!!! We’ve been coming to Benihana for years, and he did some fresh and brand new tricks we’ve never seen before! We absolutely LOVED his humor! Justine was great with keeping the drinks coming! Thank you Juan and Gary, Justine too! Juan is a keeper!!!!

Everything is great, except price. We didn't really go crazy on food and didn't leave hungry, but the price is way high. We paid $400 for 6 adults and one little child.

BEHNIHANA IS ALWAYS GOOD THE ONLY THING I NOTICED AT LUNCH IS THERE WASNT MUCH OF A SHOW BY THE CHEF AS THERE IS IN THE EVENING OR WEEKENDS. YEARS AGO THEY PUT BEAN SPROUTS IN THE FRIED RICE, NOT ANY MORE. PROBABLY TOO EXPENSIVE. OTHERWISE IT WAS GOOD.

We have since moved to Virginia, however we were back for the holidays and celebrated my husband and my birthday with them. It was super fun, we had a party of 6 people and there was something on the menu for everyone. We had diverse allergies in the group and the staff was completely amazing! The wait staff and chef were all wonderful and entertaining!! My son and I had lived nearby and used to frequent this restaurant, he is now 22 years old and we see some of the same staff are still there working. That, in and of itself was wonderful to see!! I would definitely recommend this location for a fun relaxing dinner for a party of 8 or less, to be seated at the same table comfortably. AH-MAZING!

I have gone to Benihana for years and have always had an amazing and delightful time. Food is always good. The only negative thing is towards the end (when they were asking if we wanted desert or anything else)we ordered tea and it never came.

This Benihana’s really needs to be updated. Restaurant was old and dingy. Price per person was astronomical. 4 people..no alcohol.. and bill was almost $200.00. This only includes our meal. We did not get any additional items. Would not go back just because of price!

A return visit is definite. Hopefully it won't be kids' night. The service could use improvement: The wait time at the actual table was extensive; server seemed mechanical, not genuinely interested in her table. The chef was great and entertaining.

Compared to other hibachi restaurants, it was more expensive and food was rather bland. Sushi came out rather late. Drink selection was better than other hibachi restaurants.

I usually don't do reviews - but my wife saw some which were less than stellar for Benihana so I wanted to add that our experience was FABULOUS! All I could have wanted and more. The food was great, the chef was very entertaining. We had a party of 8 which took the whole 'table' we were at and everyone had a great time. I was expecting to pay much more - the bill was very moderate for the food and entertainment we had.

8 of us had dinner at Benihana’s Schaumburg Christmas day to celebrate being together again and my mom’s 92 birthday. I made the reservation on-line a month ago from out of state. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. We will return. Thank you, Benihana Schaumburg.

We visited Benihana with family for Christmas dinner. It was their first time dining at a Hibachi Grill and they enjoyed the experience. The food was delicious and the service was very good. Our Chef was professional and showed his skills in creating a delicious dinner for all.

We normally dine at the Benihana in Lombard, but will make the drive to Schaumburg in the future. The entire experience was a pleasure from beginning to end. We were seated upon arrival at our reserved time. A server came to take drink orders, followed by food orders. We didn’t wait long for our chef, who did a fantastic job preparing our food. The surroundings were clean and welcoming. The staff was personal and friendly. One of the best, most satisfying experiences we’ve had at Benihanas in years.

Their son was also celebrating his birthday and he loved it. We had great conversation and a great fulfilling meal.

Girlfriend and I got sick immediately. After leaving, we even had to rush home and cancel plans for after. Will not be returning. Sad because this was one of our favorite spots! Stay away from chicken on a busy night, that’s what got us sick! Besides that service was poor but at the end of the day that’s understandable because it was a full house and I work in the restaurant industry so it’s ok to deal with. But never ok to deal with food being not being prepared/handled properly just because it’s busy. Never again
