Avoid this restaurant! No COVID precautions, the tables are super close and full. It was very hard to hear even my husband sitting next to me. Very poor service, our waitress didn’t come to check on us until after we finished eating. We didn’t get all of the food we ordered. The restaurant was dirty and very dated. The hibachi chef was very personable, but all of the food was very over cooked. My husband and I both got sick after we left. When our bill came a 20% gratuity had already been added when it was only the 2 of us on the bill, but the waitress had sneakily put that all 7 of us sat at the table were together, but we were most definitely not. Very poor value for the money. Any other hibachi restaurant is much better.
I booked the restaurant because of Milwaukee dining week.
The menu looked interesting and I’ve never been to Benihana‘s before. I had to Yakisoba.It lacked flavor and the rice that came with it was totally tasteless
We were there at lunch time for downtown dining. Last year they cooked at our table but this year they didn't. They had a Chef cooking but he was at a table by himself. He cook the food there and wait has brought that food to our tables.
The local event, Milwaukee Doentown Dining, is one I missed very much last year, and as usual? Benihana is one of its highlights.
The host when you first come in was very rude the waitress was not friendly at all but food was good!
Our chef was did not interact with the table at all!!!! Overcooked my steak as well as my husband's. Definitely not worth $157.00. Would NOT recommend.
The place was not special. It was a special menu for dining in Milwaukee. We sat with strangers at a large table where the cook usually prepares the meal .
This was not done . It was mass made at another table in the distance. I felt the place was rundown and even felt unclean. The food was generous and tasty.but was only warm when I received it.
It was just a mediocre experience and I will never return.
The noise was so loud that we had a very hard time hearing the server and the chef. It was also extremely hot. I can understand some heat due to sitting next to the cooking surface but it was too much.
Food was amazing. Was very hot inside. I left with a very satisfied stomach and a happy girlfriend but very sweaty from the heat.
It took over 30 minutes to get our drinks and then when I tried to order more drinks for my family, I was told no because he was busy and needed to get our salads. When ordering my food I made it very clear I didn’t want rice or noodles. Both rice and noodles were given to me. My daughter never got her rice. My son didn’t want mushrooms they put mushrooms in his food. I made a special request because it was my son‘s birthday yet it was an honored. So disappointing.
Very enjoyable. Wait staff and chef were great. Dining room needs remodeling but is alright. Noise level is loud but expected. Very difficult to hear wait staff and chef hard to hear because of masks. Will come back again.
Overall outdated. Waiter was terrible but the chief was good. He did miss out on the volcano and we had to ask him to do it.
It was so loud no one on one conversation was to be had. The food was average to fair. Nothing spectacular
Made reservation and still had to wait at least 15 minutes after reserved time. Food was okay. Gratuity automatically added (not like this at other locations). Tricks were what you find at all hibachi grills. Used to receive a lot more rice and vegetables.
Hour long wait with no apologies or updates regarding wait time although we had a reservation.
The service was outstanding and I was overall pleased with the wait staff, and chef who were very pleasant as well as entertaining!
Very good meal! Super fin atmosphere. A little loud
The teriyaki steak was so tough it was nearly inedible. Other food was great.
it was good, a bit noisy
We were pleasantly surprised by how much fun this was. The place is very dated and has an old oil odor to it (re-old carpets) but the service was amazing and the food was pretty decent for a chain restaurant. Everyone made us feel very welcome and our daughter had a super fun time watching them make our food!
This was my first time going to this restaurant. I was impressed by the customer service and would return.
Service was excellent! All staff friendly! Price was very high though...
Not enough food for the price and some of the food wasn't cooked throughly.
My waiter was horribly rude and unapproachable. We had to walk up to get our water refilled.
Good experience even though our chef was not as experienced as others we saw. He was personable though. Our filet was not tender. Will not order again all else was delicious
Good food and the presentation was excellent. A nice way to wind down after a rough day at work.
Food was terrible and tasted spoiled. The yum yum sauce was SO THICK. Absolutely no flavor on anything. No seasoning
No show at all while cooking and food was so so and overpriced.
Benihana’s is in desperate need of rebranding and new management.
They do not honor reservations from online/open table.
There was a lot going on at Benihanas. The atmosphere was exciting, the food was tasty and the service was great. There wasn't much to complain about. It is a bit pricey, but you are paying for a great performance by the chef.
Very nice experience for a family of 6. Staff very friendly and the food was delicious.
I hadn't been to Benihana in years and it's definitely not what it used to be. It's kind of old and run down. The food was just ok. The chef was not very entertaining. It was so loud we could hardly hear our waiter or chef. Definitely not worth the money, won't be going back.
The night was lovely, but the food and price was not worth it.
I ordered shrimp hibachi and only got shrimp :(
My BF really enjoyed it for the first time him ever going. We will be going back.
Restaurant was dirty and outdated. Waitress was incredibly rude and inattentive. Food was not good. The cook seemed rushed but at least he was friendly. We had a party of 5 for a birthday party. A single woman was seated with us at the end of the table where she spent the entire time on her phone fighting and swearing on speaker with someone. It was a terrible experience. I understand this woman's demeanor was not the restaurant's fault but it was a total nightmare. When I told the waitress all she said was I should have told her earlier and she would have moved the woman. At no point did they say anything to her and I'm quite certain the waitress heard her before I said something. And, they automatically added a 20% gratuity to the bill without notifying us so beware and watch your bill closely as I'm sure people add additional gratuity without knowing it was already on there.
Great food great service very friendly host. I’d recommend and I’ll be returning in the future.
Should not have to wait, almost a hour . After taking your order to eat.
The food was wonderful but the Chef made food for people that was allergic to seafood on the same grill. (I felt that was risky) Than he sat a lobster tail on top of one of the ladies food that was allergic to seafood. So he had to have them make all her food over. The server we had wasn’t welcoming, friendly or helpful at all. His attitude was a total turn off. I come done in with you all at least twice a year. And I order take out maybe 4-6 times a year if not more. And this was THEE worse experience I ever had.
