    We had several errors with our order, I had to remind the server several times about apps and other things we never received. It was a bday and the chef said they would do something special.. nothing was done ! We had a table of a screaming child beside us the whole night ! So overpriced for the service and portions while the chef was trying it was a very basic show with our meal.

    Food and experience was great. Portions were more then adequate. My only issue was that the tip was added to the bill pre tax. we were a party of 5 with a bill of $430 after tax and a $51 tip added directly to the bill. Given the opportunity to decide on the tip amount myself would have left $100 but if places are telling me how much to tip thats all they get

    Not the same Benihana experience we’ve had in the US. Service was okay – well intentioned and friendly, but it took a while for the orders to be taken. Soup was meh and the salad too. The food was not very well seasoned or flavored. Crazy amount of money for what we had in the end. Would not repeat it.

    The employees were very nice and the chef was great. But I have been to a lot of Benihanas and I would say this one was my least favorite. Their menu is VERY limited and they charge you extra for the hibachi rice which i find strange. Also way more expensive than other benihanas but I’m guessing it’s because it’s on Clifton hill. Food was good but probably won’t go back.

    Good evening! The experience of visiting your restaurant turned out to be very unfortunate, because after half an hour I felt bad and the whole evening I felt bad. I still have a lot of pain in my stomach. Yesterday was upset and indigestion. My husband also had a stomachache, but not as bad as mine. In addition, for some reason, only at the very end, the waiter warned everyone that an additional 17% tax would be included in the bill. This was not mentioned anywhere before. A very strange tactic of informing customers.

    I would have thought that Benihana’s was such a prescriptive chain that the food quality would be consistent. Not so, apparently. The food prepared by our “chef” was sub-par, and he didn’t know the typical tricks except the volcano onion and flipping bowls. Fried rice came with a $5 up-charge and barely any ingredients except rice and overcooked scrambled eggs. Everything was heavily sprinkled with MSG. Its not possible to get out under $100/person as you are required to get a $65-125+ entree, 17% service fee, tax. Waitress didn’t know what a martini or even gin is, but she’s just untrained so I did tip over the required. Similarly the poor clumsy chef may improve if trained, and I know it’s hard to get workers, but we got surprisingly great service at tpuristy Table Rock.

    From the time we arrived until the time we left we had a fantastic experience. The hostesses were pleasant and prompt, our server was personable, kind, and very helpful. I am fairly certain it was the owner who checked on us midway through our meal and afterwards to make sure everything was meeting our expectations, Benihana’s exceeded them! Our family doesn’t go out too often having a 4 year old and 5 month old, so this was a treat. The food was good, the show was amazing! So much fun to watch and interact and enjoy! A little disappointed that we were charged a tourist fee even though we live in Welland but other than that this is definitely a place we will come again! My son is already asking when we can go back and see the onion volcano ☺️

    It was a pleasurable experience all in all. The chef was an excellent entertainer and very skilled at his craft. I believe that the price point was way too high for what we received. 95% of my meal was onions and mushrooms leaving me hungry after dinner. The bill cost $319.00 for 2 steak dinners and this was after they removed the hefty $40.00 tourism tax as we are locals in Niagara Falls. That being said it would have cost a couple from out of town nearly $360.00 and this was with us only drinking water. It kind of appeared as they are gouging their clientele. One visit was enough after the remortgage in order to eat experience.

    Terrible !! I’d never go back for $300 no liquor !! I had a Mother’s Day reservation and still had to wait 1 hr after being seated for our chef to arrive…. The food was no different than your local Chinese nothing special … the shrimp were very tiny…. Server just wanted us to buy alcohol… we don’t drink. And we felt rushed towards the end of the night… this place is a money grab and NOT WORTH IT !! Go to the keg !!!

    Food was good as should be for Benihana but they really should not take advantage of tourists. Food cost $196 but our bill was $329.11. They charged $133 in taxes and tip for food that cost under $200. None of other pricey restaurants we ate charged this much for taxes and tip. Unless you definitely can't hold your cravings for the tepanyaki food, best to avoid being taken advantage of.

    Everyone in our group agreed that it was good to be together for a night out. Also that food and service were both excellent. Quantities were substantial. We understand that most likely as the restaurant is on the second level of the building a proper venting system must be installed. Unfortunately this caused a significant noise level at the table, while the chef was preparing. He did however answer our questions and provided wonderful entertainment while preparing. We were surprised that a specific percentage was already included in the bill. While the meal and service were certainly worth an additional charge we would have preferred to be in control of that amount.

    Took my wife and daughter for dinner. 2 steakFilet and 1 chicken/shrimp dinners and a bottle of wine cost over $500.00 when taxes and service charges were factored in. The for was fine but not for the price. If you have a desire to drop $500 on a meal for 3 people, I would recommend many other restaurants before this one.

    Extremely overpriced!!! Our hibachi chef was great but it was not worth it at all. Somehow they’re getting away with charging an extra $5 for hibachi rice which sways comes with the meal.
