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.
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Restaurant was dirty and outdated.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.
Floyd was great. Attentive and beyond friendly. He made the experience worth it. Presentation of sushi rolls were sloppy at best and hibachi wasn't that great of an experience.
Not the same this visit. Poor service, food was rushed. I love this restaurant l, but disappointed.
My boyfriend and I were looking forward to going to Henihana's for the first time, only to find out that the environment was unclean, and the service was horrible. We were sitting at a bar for a drink while we were waiting for a table, and there was no bartender. We would never go back to Benihana's.
Had a great time and the food was great!
qThey water their drinks and charge for fried rice
Great service food was amazing a little loud from other party but had a nice time for my wife’s birthday
It was my birthday with family and it was great!!!
Hostess was on the rude side. Upstairs was way too crowded and loud. Food was not worth the price or the drinks. Place was not clean either.
Chef arrived with a filthy dirty uniform for our 5:45 reservation. Did not do trick flipping shrimp tails in hat or shirt pocket. Fried rice lacked flavor; needed seasoning. Zucchini was very overcooked and squishy.
The food was ok but lacked in flavor. They over cooked my steak but offered to prepare it correctly. It was much better!
Went there for lunch. I didn't see anywhere before hand that there was no tables where you could watch the food being prepared. Food was OK. Was not worth the trouble.
Very busy and loud
Our waitress would ask the other two groups at our table is everything was fine and she would just keep skipping over us
There’s other cheaper and better options in Milwaukee
Food was amazing. So, so good. Everything was super high quality. When you are there, it feels like you are in a classy place too. Everything was amazing, including our chef.
This is the 2nd Hibachi resteraunt I've ever tried in my life, besides Japanese Steakhouse which is closed down now, sadly, and that one is still my favorite. Even after trying this place... I wish the chef flipped the shrimp into your mouth like that place did, but the chef did pretty much everything else.
This place is pretty expensive though, so keep that in mind... A dinner for 2 was 85 dollars for me and my date, but like I said, the food is very high quality.
The service was pretty good too. The waiter was quick on the refills and on everything else, but he was pretty slow with the check, which wasnt that big of a deal.
If you're looking for a Hibachi to try or go to, this is the place. Just keep in mind that they dont have a parking lot and you'll have to pay 10 dollars for parking in the lot across the street and your bill will be expensive. But it's a great expierience and my date absolutely loved everything about it.
Will deffinately come back.
Really nice set the mood
Have to wait a very long time this to het our foods. Thw foods wasn't good and bad sevice.
I reserved a table for four o’clock when we arrived we were seated with walk ins so they do not have order I placed some of what I would order on table talk they knew nothing treated me like a walk in sent 180 dollars but would not be back to dine in it’s not worth It was ghetto.
The food was fantastic! The chef was knowledgeable and provided an excellent show. It was our first time there and we will be back.
Food was amazing and also the overall experience, totally coming back soon
We went to Benihana for the entertaining experience but the chef we had didn’t make it very entertaining at all. Our server was EXCELLENT, but unfortunately the chef left us quite disappointed. It was also VERY loud in there, so much that we couldn't even hardly hear the server or chef at all. We thought that during Covid we’d be safe that they would have it at half capacity but it was still almost full, which made us very nervous.
we made reservations ahead of time and ended up waiting 15 minutes over our reservation time to get our seats. in my reservation notes i had requested that it was my wife’s birthday and that wasn’t acknowledged either. very disappointed considering the money we spent!
COVID-19 of course makes things different but overall a good experience. Didn’t care for the plastic ware I think the customer should have the option. I plan to bring my own silverware next visit it will make it more pleasurable and easy to eat my meal.
It's our go-to for a night out! Love it!!! Our waitress was awesome!
The chefs at other Milwaukee area hibachi restaurants were much more engaged and experienced. I parked our car in the lot and was charged $6 for parking, although there wasnt a sign and nobody said anything about having to pay to park in their lot. Also, the tables were so close that our chef was back to back with another chef and they probably couldn't do all the tricks and fun stuff because they didn't have the room. Overall, I'd recommend Fujiyama or Japanica over this chain.
Enjoyed... The food was very good. The service was incredible!
The carafe of wine and the extra glass were very small compared to all other restaurants we attend-very disappointed with the drinks, but the food was good. Dan
Awesome food and great atmosphere. Dinner and a show!!
JUST THINK IF I HAD ENOUGH TIME TO WRITE THIS IT WAS BAD...
Good service food was delicious I will come back again
Spent the extra dollars for the steak and yes do it. So tender and delicious.
My frist experience.It’s was very nice and welcoming I will definitely be back!
My husband and I chose to eat at Benihana for Valentine’s Day weekend since we were gifted a Benihana gift card from a friend. It was very disappointing that we were unable to use the gift card. We were told by management that the gift card was not activated, however we checked the balance on the card by calling the number on the back of the card to confirm the available balance. The manager claimed “when swiping the card he could see the available balance but the store didn’t activate the card all the way so we would need to return to the store we purchased the gift card from to have them activate it.” This was very disappointing that we could not use a gift card that is specifically for Benihana restaurants.
Other than that mishap the experience was great. Our chef was amazing and the food was great.
No COVID-19 precautions made! The restaurant was at full capacity!
