Benihana - Cincinnati

Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.



Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!



An 18% service charge is added to all guest checks for parties of eight or more.

"Had a reservation for 7:30pm and wasn't seated until 7:45pm. Hibachi chef didn't arrive at table until 8:45pm. Simply ridiculous and unacceptable. Didn't leave restaurant until 9:30pm."

"We had a reservation. Got seated at our reservation time which was good but had to wait 45 minutes on a cook, then we were there another 30-45 minutes for cooking and eating. This is way to much time to spend for lunch. Most people don't have 2 hours for lunch."

"I have been going to this location since I was about 10 years old. Every year for my birthday. Now I take my kids. it used to be an occasion to go - you would get dressed up and go to Benihana, but on this last visit they had a sign that said no hats and that you had to have on shoes. WTH? I have noticed the decline over the years, but on this visit we had one of the older chef's and he was just a real gentleman and performer. It was great. With all the changes, I still love this place. Our food was excellent and service was great."

"We arrived to celebrate a birthday and we were seated on time! Yeah! The food is always terrific - very good as it was this time. However at the end of the cooking, I realized that we had received the shrimp appetizer with our meal. I spoke with the manager about it and she offered a discount of $2.50 per person. Apparently some of the people at our table had a shrimp allergy.
We had to ask for our ice cream. They didn't take our picture as they usually do for birthdays.
The last 3 times we have come here, something always goes wrong. We only come for special occasions and have been disappointed with the service. The food is always good. I think management needs to step up and acknowledge that it could be them.

"The restaurant is severely understaffed. The wait is extremely long. The chefs are mediocre and not very experienced. The food was surprisingly better than I thought it would be due to the lack of staff and lack of experience. This place needs an overhaul, and it would be better served to change locations and move back to downtown Cincinnati."

"It was my dates first time there and we got a cook and it was her second day! Although she did okay considering how long she has been working, my date was pretty upset at the experience. I ordered the benhianna excellence and my meal was not prepared right but I did not complain because I did not want to cause trouble for our cook! But overall she was a sweetheart and you can tell with a little more training she will do just fine soon"

"I'm a fan of Benihana and eat there regularly. Not sure what happened this time but it was horrible. I won't be back for a very long time 8f at all. Not until current staff have turned over again."
