Although there was a lackAlthough there was a lack of actual waiters avaliable, the food was amazing and even better drinks!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been coming here forWe've been coming here for years and we can always expect great food and service.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for groups & specialGreat for groups & special occasions- Had 9 from out of state that appreciated the relaxed atmosphere. Everyone tried something new to them & liked it. Staff very attentive, kept drinks filled & the orders correct. They seated us right away & gave us time to make our choices, as it was new for us we needed more time. The show was fabulous. By the end of the meal the kids hadn't realized that 2 hours had passed! 1/2 our group was teenaged boys & they went away filled & happy -that is an accomplishment! Our waiter was very personable & inquired about sticker shock when the tab came but because you had your menu & prices on this website where we made our reservations we knew what we were getting into and were fine with it. Well done!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMi would recommend for a fun time!benihana's its nice.....but the really good thing is the experience of eating food cooked right in front of you on a hibachi table.....the food isnt the greatest but the experience is amazing!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat fun. Good food.My son chose Benihana for his after-graduation dinner! It was a great choice - we had a wonderful time:) Everyone was in a festive mood... the food was yummy, the service was friendly as everyone was eager to please, and there was definitely a celebratory vibe in the restaurant. A lot of fun for the whole family!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodI went for my birthday. They gave me a pic with my friends. Sung a song and gave me dessert. It was awesome. The food was phenomenal.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEvent success :)I would strongly suggest anyone who wants to plan a top notch event to book this place .
I Made reservations for a client of mine for a graduation celebration and Benihana's Bethesda pull out all the stops for them. I even had some very high profile guess that came to the restaurant and the feed back I got was that everyone felt comfortable and special, which is very hard to do with celebrity's. Great service, great staff.and another wonderful event .I will bed booking benihana's again .5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time for My Birthday Dinner!!The food, the chef (highly entertaining, engaging, charming), the ambiance were great! I wish they had more selections for dessert besides Ice Cream or rainbow sherbert, but this is minor. I really enjoyed the Japanese birthday songs to cap off a delightful dinner. The service was wonderful without being too intrusive.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFun!We went here on our wedding night, so for our 9-year anniversary we decided to go again, and we are so glad we did! We had a blast and our server and the hostess even sang us a Japanese anniversary song and brought us ice cream!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Hibachi AroundBenihana’s is a great hibachi place. I made a reservation for 14 although only 10 showed up. The staff made the arrangements very quickly to accomodate the change in my party. We waited at the bar while they made the changes and ordered sushi at the bar during happy hour. It did not come out before our table was ready so they told us they would bring it right over and they did! It was very delicious5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went on Mother's Day andWe went on Mother's Day and were lucky to join a family of 6 which left 1 seat open at a table and gave us more room. Menu is pricy but food. We spent close to a 100 for 2 without alcohol. Calamari was absolutely delicious and our chef was a good entertainer. Overall, it was a good experience, but probably a place for a special occasion rather than becoming a regular hot spot.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but noisy!We love Benihana but this time it was over-the-top packed and we could not even carry on a conversation within our group. Overly loud. Good food, good service but not overly-authentic. I don't think there was one Japanese cook/chef in the entire restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food!Great place to dine loved it! The food was on point and the chef and waiter gave good customer service too! I will be back very soon5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGo-To RestaurantMy family and I loving visiting Benihana for any special occasions we may have. The staff knows us very well and we are always presented with excellent service. The service isn't the only great thing about this Japanese steakhouse - they have the best food around, in my opinion. I always opt for the "splash n' meadow" which is a combination of steak and colossal shrimp. They usually serve your dinner with salad and a soup. I love this place!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana - still deliciousBenihana is not the exotic destination it once was but the food is still absolutely delicious and it is a fun place to go with kids or a with a large group. This is not a place for a romantic date and foodies will definitely turn up their noses but it is entertaining and delicious. The only downside is that you will go home smelling like a hibachi grill.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur service was great andOur service was great and the chef was very entertaining. They were very attentive to our needs. My family loves food and great service which was all exceeded.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is awesome watching theIt is awesome watching the food being made right in front of you.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationWell it was my birthday and my waitress let everyone know it was my birthday LOL.

Thank you for being patient with us.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and prompt,Excellent food and prompt, attentive service from a restaurant long renowned for both. I make it a point to stop here whenever I'm in the Bethesda / DC area, particularly if I'm hosting visitors.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit toThis was my first visit to Benihana's. My fiance and I enjoyed the meal but found the experience and menu the same as every other hibachi style restaurant. We both had a expected alot more, specifically from the hibachi chef but his performance diwindled in comparison to other chefs at the same style restaurant. We were looking forward to the "Benihana's Experience". Maybe they're not what they used to be. Besides that...the food was delicious.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good, always consistantAs usual, Benihana doesn't disappoint. From the attentiveness of the staff to the delicious meal itself, everything was wonderful. I was also seranaded for my birthday! Small point, when we arrived at 9:30pm, there was no one at the hostess stand. We waited about 2 minutes or so and then had to ask someone for help. About 5 minutes after that, someone finally came to seat us.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a really good time,We had a really good time, good drinks and great food for a good price!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable place to eat.Very enjoyable place to eat.
