This is just a fun restaurant. They cook at your table and the food is really outstanding. A dinner and show, something you don't find too often anymore. Go there and have a good time.

Outstanding food and a great show with the chef not only cooking right in front of you but flipping knives and making food fun. Fun for the whole family.

But that was absolut not a problem - it was even more exciting because the cook had to prepare more menus in front... More

We went to Benihana as part of our "world tour" of Chicago, so this was part of our trip to Japan. The food was fresh, the grills clean, and our chef very entertaining. My grandsons loved it! The 4 year old kept calling the chef a food ninja. They were so excited that it made the price worth it. It... More

The "chef" was nice but not very entertaining and the food was so bland. No flavor. Most of our group and the filet steak. It was ok... More

My wife and I were on a weekend getaway to Chicago for the weekend. I have been before but this was the first time my wife had ever been to Benihana. The atmosphere and entertainment were both great, and the food was excellent. I had Chateaubriand for the first time ever, and it was without a doubt the best steak... More
