Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. Take a walk around our restaurant and learn about Japanese culture with our Japanese artifacts such as a bridal kimono, or take a seat outside and enjoy the tranquility of our outdoor koi pond. Please remember that we are closed between lunch and dinner from 2:30 p.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday. We reopen for dinner and Happy Hour at 5 p.m. Although reservations are not required, they are recommended.

Our chef was horrible, no emotion, did not entertain like others chefs have done for us in the past. My wife asked for her meal to be cooked medium rare and it was completely rare. When we asked for the chef to put it back on the grill he literally refused and said she would have to wait until he was done cooking everyone else's food. It was my daughters 20th birthday and I can tell you I was not impressed at all. Plus, they have to fix their ventilation system over the cooking area. The smoke and grease was blowing in my wife's and mine the entire time. Will not go back. Tsukasa in Vernon Hills is much better. Highly recommend.

Great Valentine's Day dinner celebration! Food was delicious, but it is pricey.

I brought my daughters and girlfriend to the wheeling bennihana. We were seated promptly and service was fast. The chef cooked our food really well. I will say it seemed like we were rushed after the chef was done to finish our meal, and pay our bill and leave. But other then feeling rushed and the chef maybe just doing the minimum of what he would normally do show wise..we had a great evening and would consider coming again on a less busy night

It was a nice evening - although we had a group of six and was hoping for our own table. Our cook wasn't very fun - his show was not great, and didn't speak english, so we were unable to communicate. Food was ok.
