Benihana - Ontario
Since Benihana first opened its doors in Ontario in 1998 it has remained one of the Inland Empire's premier restaurants to gather with friends, family and business associates. The very design of the building evokes images of a trip to Japan, and within the senses are filled with the delightful experience that awaits. Twenty-two teppan tables set the stage for fun where your own personal chef prepares a meal of steak, chicken, seafood and vegetables all cooked to perfection right before your eyes. Sushi appetizers can be ordered in the dining room or a whole sushi feast can be enjoyed in the sushi bar which offers an array of creative seafood tastes. Located just off the 10 Freeway near Ontario International Airport and five minutes from the Ontario Convention Center. Open daily. Plenty of off-street parking.
On the night of Wednesday September 15, 2010, my husband and I went to Benihana in Ontario, CA. The reason why I am writing this is to warn others to not have David as your chef. David does not deserve the title of “chef”, instead he should be placed back in the kitchen to prep. Our night was incredible until this poor excuse of a “chef” came to the table. He started out by mumbling his introduction and showing the table that he has zero personality at all. It was a huge disappointment considering there were a total of three birthdays at the table, myself included.
My husband and I have been there multiple times before and we absolutely love the fried rice. We have learned our lesson in the past that we need to have extra to take home, so this time we ordered a second cup of fried rice. Unfortunately, it was another chance for David to cook up a disappointment. We both received a cup and a half of fried rice, rather than two whole servings. In fact, the other four people who ordered fried rice got ripped off too. This one loud mouth at the end of the table, who did not order fried rice, ended up getting three times more rice than anyone else. Even the people who were sitting next to us were upset.
Throughout the time David was at the table he did two acts that were half-assed: the steaming onion and the flipping of the leftovers into his hat. Wow… He also did another “trick” – give special treatment to those who spoke Spanish to him.
If you go to Benihana in Ontario, CA, and see a “chef” named David coming to your table ask to be relocated. If you do not speak up, then you are in for a night of disappointment and frustration as you look at the other tables that are laughing and having fun. Who knows, but if you speak Spanish to him then maybe you will get a better time and more food from him…
The food was great here, there is alot more to look at with the Benihana's in Las vegas but, of course, its Las vegas, but the staff was very friendly and the food was cooked to perfection and watching how they cook it was awesome too.It was a little pricy but you pay for what you get here. I would definitely go here again.
I have never eaten here before and I am a seafood devourer. The atmosphere was great even though I was sitting next to three kids. They were well behaved but chatty. The food was great! I had their seafood combo platter which had lobster, shrimp, and scallops on it. It was all cooked in front of me while I was entertained by the chef. His name was Benny and he was adorable. Make your reservation though, there was aline out the door when I exited.
