Benihana sucks! Expensive, poor quality slop that a chef of the wrong nationality throws into your feeding trough! Dinosaur age waitress with a hippy pouch and two empty sockets for eyes! Oil splatters off of stove and creates burn! Salad is spare with junkyard juice in a bowl called soup! PS-- there food was seasoned with lard==== fat

I would like to start of to say that the service was very good here. The presentation and cooking that happens right in front of you is very entertaining. I enjoyed the food but it could have a bit more flavor. If you come when it's crowded, the atmosphere might seem frantic with everything going on there at once. As... More

There were 10 of us for lunch and we had a blast. The really nice thing was how our children were entertained by the chef, especially our birthday girl. He went out of his way to please the kids with his culinary skills. It really is a different experience sitting and watching the food be prepared right at your table.... More

My wife and I had been dining at this location for over 25 years since it was the old Samurai. We loved eating here at least 3 to 4 times a month. A few months ago 3 employees were fired at this location by Benihana's corporate over something stupid. An interim manager is now in charge and is not friendly... More

My family and I have eaten at many Benihana's across the country and usually find them entertaining with good hibachi style food. Unfortunately, the Benihana in Pittsburgh is one of the worst I've eaten at. The restaurant was dirty and the air quality was poor. When walking in you'll notice the carpet is filthy and the place smells like your... More

I rarely review restaurants but my experience yesterday was so poor that I feel I need to. The experience was poor from the very beginning when we walked into the smokiest restaurant I've been to: their vents must not have been working properly. The food was bland and had little to no flavor. The onion soup tasted like water, the... More

I have not been to this restaurant in many years and it is as good as it was at my first visit. Great service all the dishes were prepared as each person sitting around the Hibachi table liked. No one left hungry in fact many left with dinner for the next day. A happy place to go and spend an... More

Consistently good Japanese food. Cleaner than other restaurants of this type that we have been to. This is not a brand new updated establishment and it has been the same for many years. Some Chefs are more entertaining than others but the food remains good.

Went here with my son, we love Japanese Hibachis so we chose this while we visited Pittsburgh--college visit PITT. We have been to local similar restaurants closer to home and like them way better than Benihana. Service was sub par. The cook catered to the family we sat with we were pretty much ignored. The food was good but nothing... More

We usually get the teriyaki chicken at Nakama. Decided to try the spicy hibachi chicken here. Really nothing special. The only flavor it had was "hot" We also felt like the portion of the cooking was so drug out that the veggies all get cold before your main dish is ready. We did like the decor but we will be...
