Benihana - Dallas
Great Birthday DinnerOur Chef was entertaining and personable. He engaged all of the members of our party during the presentation. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was delicious.
I had mentioned that it was my husbands birthday and they were very accommodating and were more than happy to embarrass him with a song and an ice cream sundae for desert.
The only negative comment that I need to add is that our small salads were overwhelmed by the quantity of ginger dressing on them.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial BirthdayWe were there for a 21 birthday celebration and it was festive and fun - just what we wanted. Great time and great food.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great!My boyfriend and I had a great time as always and the Chief Thang was amazing!!!! I wl always request his table when possible! Keep up the good work!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYUM!Great as always! I asked the chef to prepare my chicken spicey and he was happy to do it! The waitress was nice and easy to talk to.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove itMy friends and I try to make sure we're here at least once a month, because it is truly a treat. Although some may thing it's expensive, the food and overall experience are worth every penny.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant CelebrationThe experience allowed us a nice celebration. It was easy to converse. Food was tremendous and unique. We are VERY glad we tried the fired rice like the server receommended - everyone at the table commented on how unique and tasteful it was.
One of the orders at our table was messed up, but the server appropriately offered to adjust our bill (no hard feelings). But, upon inspection, we saw that she did not actually adjust our bill after offering to do so. Also, she charged the drinks from another table to our bill. In both cases, she seemed very embarrassed and did finally correct the bill. But, this taught me that I will ALWAYS check the details of my bill from Benihana - even if both of these were honest mistakes.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server Trent lifted upOur server Trent lifted up the excitement level keeping the mixed group on our toes.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch option for kidsI took my preschool for lunch and they were kind, accomodating and every entertaining.

I would definitely recommend to everyone!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDifferentOur chef was a good cook, but unexpectedly a great host and fun. I enjoyed the food and it was much more casual than expected.

The food was delicious (although too much of it!), and the service was very good. Our chef was a great entertainer! The filet mignon with mushrooms was excellent, the vegetables and fried rice were tasty, and the plum wine was a delightful treat. One in our party was celebrating a birthday, and he received an ice cream sundae with a candle and Happy Birthday sung in Japanese. Especially nice was looking out on a beautiful. lush green landscape instead of acres of concrete as in most Dallas restaurants! We felt as if we were on vacation in another place!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food Service NitaFantastic food Service Nita was great. We had a great time I had to get Nita to get me my check with her name on it...Another waitress brought me check with her name on it and I wanted to be sure that Nita got the tip4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI found that it was very funI found that it was very fun to have been to Benihana.

The Dallas location is by far one of my favorites. You get the usual soup and salad with every entree but what makes the food so good is the garlic butter that goes in everything. I wish I could buy some. All the servers and chefs are nice and very attentive. Not only do I come back for the food, but I come back for the great service. I usually request to be sat in Mang's section because he always makes sure everything is perfect. Whether you're a seafood or meat lover, at least try hibachi once here at Benihana.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana is terrific, end of story.Amazing, as per usual. The chefs and the food, both top-notch. Highly recommend.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall I had a great experienceOverall I had a great experience and would definitely be back as well as recommend to my peers.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfect. MyEverything was perfect. My sister and her family went to another restaurant it was a terrible experience in every way. I'm so glad we choose Benihana. There were two other families at our table and they were all very pleased as well.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. WeThe food was excellent. We ordered shrimp, scallops, and steak. It was all very good. It had been awhile since we had been to Benihana's and really enjoyed the experience. We will plan to go back again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful time. TheHad a wonderful time. The service and food were both excellent. We WILL be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a somewhat hard time understandHad a somewhat hard time understanding Adrian the Chef and both filets were a little overcooked but very flavorable.The charge on the fried rice was something new to me , I don't remember being charged extra before. ( It's been a couple of years) . Bottom line, I definitly would go back .The Resturant in Houston ,as I remember, was a little better.
We'll see you again .My wife would have liked a little more fried rice,small portion, but was not given the choice,instead the rice was tossed.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, timing betweenFood was great, timing between courses was good. We enjoyed other chefs more than our own (Blanco) because they were more energetic and showy but he did prepare the food well3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI hadn't been to BenihanaI hadn't been to Benihana in probably over 20 years, but found it to be just as much fun upon my return (this time with a grown son in tow). The performing chefs are very talented and make for a truly memorable dining experience, and the food is delicious. Something about being able to watch it being made, from scratch, enhanced the taste for me. My only complaint was that there seemed to be a draft of cold air blowing right where I was sitting, making me fairly uncomfortable until the chef turned on the cooktop and started cooking.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only draw back was theThe only draw back was the hosting staff at the front. They were not very friendly and rather than explain your rules, they "barked" them.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a special dinnerI really enjoyed my experience at Benihana's. It was my birthday celebration and I went with some good friends. Our server was friendly and attentive and our chef was fun without being too over-the-top. There was a young girl at our table and she was very vocal and interested in his cooking skills -- he was very sweet to her and answered all her questions.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMit was great! the serviceit was great! the service was funny and my husband enjoyed his 35th birthday!!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI chose north Dallas Benihana'sI chose north Dallas Benihana's for my date's birthday night out based on Benihana's past reputation and past personal experiences there. It was a Tuesday night, so I was not too surprised that it was not crowded at all. The service was excellent and food as good as I remembered. Only two things about the ambiance I wish had been different. My date had been to the orient a hand full of times and she made the comment about how Benihana's landscaping was not a beautiful as the Oriental gardens over in the real orient. I immediately noted to myself that I remembered when it did look outstanding here too. The front lobby used to house a larger sitting area with tons of pictures of famous stars that had eaten at Benihanas...now gone.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time goingIt was our first time going to a place Like this, it was a great experience. The atmosphere was great, service was nothing short of awesome. Since it was just me and my husband it kinda seemed like we were crammed into a table where the whole family that were sitting with was taking up the table. Other that I would love to go back and take my family and friends to experience it too.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMJust what you'd expectReliably good teppanyaki style food. The place in Dallas is large with a nice bar area and multiple rooms for service.
We go here every year for my daughter's birthday because she loves it.
What more can one ask?3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were fantastic!! I have been going there for 10 yrs and it never gets old.
