While we ate we could see our breath, it was terrible. They turned on the ventilation from outside while it was zero degrees outside. All of our food was cold and we wore our jackets to eat dinner. It was a terrible experience and the...More

This was our first ever visit to a Benihana and unfortunatley it will be our last. While the staff was very nice and apologized for the short comings, they were seemingly extremely understaffed and the hostess was running back and forth between hostessing, waitressing and...More

My girl friend and I went there for dinner on August 27, 2017, after attending a convention nearby. She asked the hostess if she could have double vegetables instead of another item, which the hostess readily agreed to. However, the cook had a different attitude....More

We had never been to the Milwaukee location and decided to try it before seeing a show. The exterior and interior are a little dated. But honestly we werent there for that. We were there for the "performance" from the chef. And although he did...More

Never visited Benihana before and was a little apprehensive but great choice of menu and the food was perfectly cooked in front of us with flair by the chef. Very tasty food and would recommend. Great to go with a group of friends.

However, we have had similar or better service at other Hibachi grills, and the price was much less. Benihana has excellent food, slightly better than other grills, but...More

The sushi did not taste fresh, very understaffed (only one guy cooking, bartending, cooking hibachi, serving, etc..) We specifically asked if two items were "rolls" and we're told yes. They were not. They were tuna tacos and tuna tartar. Menu selection very limited when it...More

The food quality is very good, specially seafood. The show in the teppanyaki is entertaining and the cook is very skilled. Soups, salads, dressings and sauces... I liked it all. The decoration of the site is cool and the paintings and art is all related...More

I would consider this restaurant a regular chain restaurant. For the price, I would dine somewhere else. It is a hibachi Japanese restaurant . Not very friendly staff when we went here from dinner. A little out of the way and hard to find.
