The food was amazing and the service was top-notch. Chef Toto was THE BEST and we were so mesmerized and ecstatic over his Teppanyaki skills. We had such a great time!

18 months in to the pandemic and they still only have a limited menu with 4 options for dinner, this was very disappointing as you could only chose chicken, steak, lobster and steak or vegetarian. There is no reason to still offer a limited menu. Also, the food we had was very good however it is extremely overpriced. Only two of us, we both had the chicken only option and 1 alcoholic drink each and check came to $272CAD!!!! Which is astronomically high in my opinion as the same bill in Miami would of cost $80-100

A group of 6 dined tonight. We were very disappointed with the very reduced menu selection. I first spoke with the waitress- whom was very nice and polite. We had a vegetarian in our group and she only had one option available to her. We booked this restaurant because of the selection on the online menu. The food itself was adequate but not worth the price point. At the end of the meal when we were going to pay and was asked how our meal was. I did express our dissatisfaction and was told that this was a Covid menu - but in no way were the prices reflected of this. We are a well traveled group who like to dine and do not have an issue paying for a good meal. - this wasn’t it!! The manager only gave excuses and we were told that we were a difficult table. We had spent over a $1000 tonight and while we left full, we are not happy.

Location is horrible. You have to go through an arcade on bottom floor. Ruined the whole feel of going to a nice restaurant.

Food lacks flavour. Very bland.

Over priced. Paid $280 for 2 people. This was only for a basic meal with no extra appetizers.

Waste of a dinner.

Had I realized that the average price for dinner was $80 I would have reserved elsewhere. The food was decent but charging an extra $5 per person for fried rice on top of the exorbitant meal price is ridiculous. The performance by our chef was also lackluster at best. Maybe he was having a bad day or was tired. Looking around the restaurant, all the other chef's were much more energetic and engaging with their guests which is part of the whole experience of these types of restaurants. Other than a few spatula flips and the flaming onion cone, the rest of the "show" was basically just the chef going through the standard routine of preparing a meal. I have gone to other Teppanyaki restaurants that offered much better food and higher quality performances by the chef for less than half the price. Our group of 6 left feeling quite disappointed and somewhat cheated out of our money. There's far better options in the area for dinner. Save your money and go elsewhere.

Arthur was amazing. Funny, talented, a great chef. Thanks Arthur! The servers were very attentive. They offered to take our pictures as well.
It does help that they are generous with the amount of alcohol they use in their mixed drinks.
Cheers!

Ridiculously expensive and there’s a hidden tax that they just add to you bill without explanation. NFDF. Apparently it’s an 18% tourist tax. I’m not a tourist so why did I have to pay this. It’s also a 17% mandatory tip that’s added regardless of your experience. Nice place but they need to be more fair to their customers.

Not worth it! Too pricey! Although the chef did a few stunts, he was not very entertaining. For the price outlined,
Not worth it.
For Chicken , 76.00
Fillet Mignon $99
No dessert included! For Hibachi rice add $5.00 what a rip off!
Beware before u go!

Correct mais vraiment hors de prix. Je comprends que c’est Niagara et que c’est très touristique mais les prix c’est 3X celui de Montréal/Laval. Exemple, filet mignon et queue de homard à 150$ l’assiette comparé à 53$. Ils n’ont pas servi de dessert ni de thé, même pas offert!

I’ll keep this short.
Outstanding staff, I cannot give them the praise they truly deserve. The experience was fabulous! Our chef was fabulous.

The bad:

The pricing is beyond ridiculous for literally 75% onion and bean sprouts and zucchini 25%1 piece of chicken and 2 shrimp. 70.00 per person ( plus tax plus 17% autocrats)
70.00 being the cheapest per person option

Wine was watered down.

It seems to be fun wether eating solo or not, but if eating solo there should be at least tables for 1 person. Sometimes you cant enjoy the experience to the full when placed with a random group esp if theyre there for an occasion (Arkward much) but the chef and staff were amazing and keep up the good work

We dined at Benihana, Niagara Falls on September 18, 2021 while at Niagara Falls for the weekend. The Teppanyaki options were so ridiculously priced- $75 for chicken and $100 for steak, per person. The soup served with the meal was likely from a can with some mushrooms and crispy fried onions floating in it , salad and vegetables were mediocre at best, we even had to pay $5 extra each for fried rice instead of steamed riced. Six of us dined, had 3 beers, some pop and water and the bill came to $870.00 after tax and the gratuity that was included by the restaurant. A ridiculous amount for a restaurant that was not even fine dining, overlooking a noisy children's arcade. Sparing more details, our only regret was that we did not walk out once we looked at the menu! Of course, you expect to pay more in fine dining restaurants and even in areas like Niagara falls but this was really so disappointing and unforgettable for all the wrong reasons! I would never recommend this restaurant!

We love the teppanyaki experience we’ve had at other Benihana restaurants and this brand new NF restaurant did not disappoint. We did walk through an arcade in the kitschy Clifton Hill area which was funny but when we arrived on the second floor we were transported into the world of Benihana. The food was excellent with a great chef who prepared and entertained just as we’ve come to expect. Ambiance was great and the place had all new furnishings The prices are high - be prepared but the experience was worth it for us. Hopefully it will be for you too. This is now the only Benihana in Canada.

Overall our experience was ok. Our Chef was skilled and somewhat entertaining. We found the quality of the food to be good and the quantity to me more than enough. All of that said, we found the overall value to be low because of the high price. With ordering two meals (NOT the lobster), and two drinks only one of which had alcohol, our bill was almost $300 with the 17% gratuity automatically added for our "convenience". If we had wine and or more drinks this bill could have easily been over $400. The location (over a game arcade) is not the best and the wait was long (about an hour) before the dinner service actually started, and we were on time for our reservation.

So, if it's a special occasion and you don't mind dropping 4 to 5 bills for two people on a night out, then go for it.

If not, I would not recommend it.

For overall value, I don't think we'll be going back any time soon.
