Benihana is always good. However their service is always slow, it doesn't matter what time of day you come in or if you have a reservation- you're going to wait. Other hibachi restaurants don't compare, so I'm always torn between Benihana and the other great hibachi place that shall remain nameless.

Polite staff. Great food. Elevator was broke and the restaurant is down stairs. If you can't walk up and down stairs then don't go there. From restaurant the bathrooms are up another set of stairs.

I ave not been to other Benihana locations other than this one in the Cleveland area. But for the last couple of visits it has certainly not been worth the price. Since part of what you are paying for is the experience of entertainment while you are dining by the chef this definitely has not been the case. Last night... More

Came here to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. Our "cook" was absolutely awful. Not only did he mess up the one trick he tried by hitting the table behind ours with a tray, he cooked the food in a messed up order that had people with only grilled onions on their plate for at least 10-15 min while others had chicken....

Yesterday my family and I celebrated my son's second birthday at Benihana, in which we received the worst service and diminished the overall experience. From the time of arrival, things began to take a turn for the worst. I had a party of 10, one of my guest arrived 5 mins late as she is disabled, when I asked my... More

Went for lunch. Prices expensive. Main dish to salty to eat. Steak over done. Not very busy. Server not friendly. Talked with manager, meal was remade. Each time I visit here I get disappointed. It used to be my favorite place.

We went here to eat for Father's Day. We live in the area and hadn't been in a year and a half so I was skeptical based on not so great recent reviews. We were promptly seated and served. The food was up to par with what Benihana normally should be. Our salads had a little too much dressing but... More

Was able to walk in without reservation. But waited 15 minutes to get seated, for a Friday night it was not busy. Only four habachi tables with guests and only three chefs! For food portion it was less than before. Prices higher than before. Service was slow and not often. Our chef said all the old chefs went to a... More

Have been dining at this Benihana for over 10 years. In the last 2 years they have gone downhill horribly. It's all poor management. It's not the staff's fault, they're just underpaid and under-trained. The service from check-in to check is terribly sub-par. Nowhere at the level that this caliber of restaurant USED to demand. A few months ago a... More
