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.

We took our family for the Hibachi experience. We ordered chicken/shrimp/steak Hibachi dinners. The experience was fantastic. 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

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.

I've been patronizing this restaurant for years and it used to be one of my all time favs but it's since went down quite a bit. My kids used to love viewing the chefs cook on the flattop before their eyes! I guess now there...More

I was with friends for dinner and we decided to go to Benihana. We were kind of surprised that we had to wait when there was nobody in the dining room. We realized the hibachi grills were on the top floor. We were shown to...More

I honestly didn't eat here. I opened the door ad was greeted by a garbage can and construction cone. The building looks dingy and -unappetizing.
