We had limited time before our flight so ate in the bar - great, fast service from Percyand the Lunch Boat Salmon and Scallops Lunch were wonderful - full of flavor, hot off the grill and beautiful presentation. We will go again.

4 of us had reservations on a busy Saturday night. As expected the place was packed with many people waiting to be seated. So far, so good. After being seated--not too long a wait-given the reservation, we DID wait for some time before a server came to take a drink order. They had a shortage of dinner menus due to... More

Eight of us went to lunch, so we were able to get our own table. We had a great time and the waitress was very good. The chef performed for us and he did a good job. The food was just so so for me. It was very salty, but they do give you plenty. Six of us ordered food... More

Food good & fresh - cook prepares it right at your table (kind of a u-shaped setting in the round with others). Ambience good. Fun place to take out of town guess for something different.

We are regular customers at Benihana and love it. At the Ontario location, the food was good but the service was really bad. Except for a young guy who was running around trying to make it right, the other waiters were uncaring and we had to beg for everything. We even got a few bad stares from a guy who... More

We decided to go here since it was with-in walking distance from the hotel...What a mistake. We went in before the dinner rush and still ended up waiting forty five min for a table. We shared our table with another family and to our surprise our "chef" cut - up our shimp, chicken, lobster tail, and filet to share with... More

We celebrated our grandson's birthday there. The food was so good. Our chef was OK, but the one next to us was better. He really got those people participating! The great experience always depends on the chef. Will eat there again when in the area.

Benihanas is a great restaurant to go to if you enjoy dining out with large groups, it caters and appeals to all ages and has a wide variety of choices. If you go in as a couple you will be seated with "other" people at your table. Be wary of this, the couple that sat with us felt like they... More

They give a good show and have plenty of good food. But other places do the same and taste the same. Above average food quality. Even on cruise ships like NCL.
