Always a good special meal

Benihana is the place for a special event meal and the flair of the cook makes it even better. Don't get to go very often, but always like to go. Good, fresh, Japanese style grilled food and the best fried rice around.

Great experience and great tasting food. Recently took my Southern Cali team for a holiday dinner at Benihana and was a super experience. The staff was great and food comes with entertainment. The price was fair for 20 people for an experience that will last a lifetime. Highly recommend to anyone looking for something more than food.

There was 4 of us that have never been there before. I am on of those 4 who have never eaten at this restaurant. I was... More

Despite a short wait for our reserved seating, the wait was well worth it. We really enjoyed the diverse menu of foods and thought the seafood options were particularly good. The dinner entertainment is all in the chef/cook in their preparation and flair in the cooking process. We had two different chefs preparing different dishes and describing the food upon... More

I have been here many times and it is still the same, the food is always delicious and the chef show is always good even if you get a Mexican Japanese. Will return anytime when in this area. Enjoy

Benihana is great!!! Great food soooo good! Specially their garlic butter that you can put on anything!! The chicken fried rice is the best! I suggest going for lunch because the price is more reasonable and less crowded. Great food, great servers abd great chefs :)

Seems like there was a birthday at every table. My husband picked this location to use a $30 off coupon as did many others. It took a while to get seated despite several empty tables. But once we did, the fun began. The mushroom soup is very tasty. We both wanted to save room for the shrimp and main entrees,... More

WOW. All I have to say is WOW. I have never been so impressed with a company as much as I am today when I write this review. Back in July my family and I went to Benihana’s in Ontario, CA and the experience was less impressive than is has been in the past. We had a large party and... More

We went to Benihana for a birthday celebration. The place was very crowded, even on a Wednesday night. Fortunately, we had a reservation for a party of nine and were seated on time. The drink order was taken quickly. Soup and salads were delivered in a timely manner. Our "chef" was very quiet. He didn't seem to know how to... More
