You sit around a hot table while the chef entertains and cooks food for you. It is a great place for birthdays and get-togethers with friends, family and co-workers. The food is delicious and the cook will fix it according to your specifications. Prices are reasonable during lunch hours a bit expensive for dinner.
Some of the cooks entertain, tell jokes and do tricks which is always a plus. Little children must be carefully supervised due to the hot cook table.

We went out for our 6th anniversary and chose Benihana. We love this place and tonight we remembered why. We were sat a table with three other couples, two of which were also celebratring their anniversaries. The waitress put those silly Benihana hats on all of us celebrating. It was fun though cause most all of us had them on. The manager noticed this and offered our table free ice cream for being such good sports.
We had the the Filet Mignon and Chicken for two, which was the special. The Filet melted in your mouth, it was sooo good! The chef was entertaining, but mostly quiet, which was fine with me. We were enjoying our time together and talking to the other couples.
We will dfinitely be back again, the food is addicting and it is a fun atmosphere. Plus you couldn't beat the $46 price tag for two dinners that included two Filet's!

Went for happy hour sushi and beers. The sushi took nearly 30 minutes to come out from the kitchen. I am always leary if I cannot see the sushi being prepared. The nigiri pieces had too much rice and the fish was warm. The rolls were good and good size. The atmosphere is OK, better than the downtown Cincinnati location IMHO, but it needs updating. I would not recommend the place and I won't go back.
