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.

Great food, chef was great, but recommend bringing a full party so you don't need to sit with others who don't have much energy!

We were attending our daughter’s 8th birthday dinner. The server was quite inattentive and we had multiple instance when we had that needed to be bussed with no one in sight. The chef although pleasant did NOT perform any of the “tricks” you would expect to see at a hibachi restaurant. However, what was most upsetting was when we had our cake; the servers had no interest in assisting. Leaving a knife and spatula in a pitcher of water was just pitiful. This is the 2nd year in a row we celebrated here, and needless to say this will be our last. What a disappointment.

We went to celebrate birthdays and were told one of the $30.00 certificates couldn't be used as it was used before. The manager worked out that issue however, it never should have been an issue. Also, we attempted to use two $10.00 bonus cards and were told, correctly that they could not be combined with the birthday certificates. The only problem with that is consistency. We have used those in combination with birthday certificates before, at the same restaurant.

Food was good but service was very slow. It appears that they do not have enough chefs. We waited quite a while between the soup and salad before cooking of our entrees. Because they were understaffed the chef was rushed and not the usual show and confidence for which Benihana is known. Little bit of a disappointment since celebrating our daughter's birthday.

I was excited to try Benihana because I am a fan of Japanese tableside restaurants. I was disappointed in the menu because I feel that they lacked choices. They did not offer combination plates, they did not have a variety of appetizers, and NO GOLDEN SAUCE!! I will stick to inhiban Japanese Steakhouse in Gurnee. The taste of their food is AMAZING!!
