Review of Benihana

50 Tri County Pkwy, Cincinnati, OH 45246

Overall Rating


We dined at Benihana for Mother’s Day and it was fantastic. The server, Magic (if I understood her name correctly), was phenomenal and understood allergies extremely well (I have celiac and also have to avoid dairy, and my husband and daughter have shellfish allergies). She made my soup without the fried onions and brought me oil and vinegar to go on my salad, and then made sure the chef knew to use gluten free soy sauce and not to use butter on my food. Chef Chico was extremely accommodating - to the point that he cleaned the grill twice to make sure that no gluten or dairy made it into my food. I cannot say enough great things about them! We will definitely be back!
