    Think if there is something u ordered and dont like it they should ask if they could fix it or take it off the bill. In my scenario it was a side of broccoli. I was dismissed pretty much when I said I didnt like it. They ignore u when they dont want u to be heard. Was there for my 40th birthday. They knew before entering the restaurant and I had a birthday coupon. Only focused on the other bday at the table. Kinda acknowledge me at the end. Overall food was nice. The dallas location is the only good bennihanna!

    We were celebrating one of our co-workers birthday and the food was great, the timing was awesome. We made reservation and didn't have to wait at all. Our cook (William) was not personable at all, he didn't entertain us, he was quiet and not sociable like the other table behind us cook was. I have never experienced a cook at any other location that was dull as William.

    Was less than impressed with the customer service. Did not take note of the two birthday celebrations. I had to tell the waitress about the birthday ice cream we are supposed to get. ( i knew from previous visits) and also to take our "Benihana Photo". Very rude chef and lack of personality and showmanship.

    It was very noisy and we were in a room near the entrance which had people spilling over into the dining area. Our server forgot my wife's and daughter's steamed rice until the meal was nearly complete. I seem to forget the overall cost compared to the service provided and come back to this place about once a year. I hope I remember to find somewhere else to go next time we are in the mood for Hibachi.

    We had a group of people attend , so we hade to be split up in 2 different tables. Which was fine, but when we got the bill we had a hard time trying to explain how we wanted to pay for the bill. I was paying for people on both tables…. They did not want to split the bills. I had to pay for my WHOLE table! I just wanted to pay for a few people on my table and few people on the other table. SO just a Disclaimer…. Be sure to sit on the same table with the people you are paying for or if they are paying for you.

    It was a Thursday night and it was going to be a special evening. We have a group of 4 and were promptly seated upon arrival. Drinks were served and the menus presented. The server was professional and attentive. The chef was entertaining and hosted an enjoyable show. The meals were cooked right in front of us and prepared exactly to order. If you have an upcoming special occasion, this is a great place for that meal.

    Always a great place for tweens and teen birthdays. Also a hit with younger kids- from the bridge over the fishpond, to the good luck cat- its always a good show. A photo to remember the night is a nice touch- and an ice cream for the birthday child. Enough food for lunch the next day- good sushi, too.

  • Chicken Fried Rice Cost

    Dined on 9/1/2014
    Apparently you will be charged $3.50 for fried rice w/ chicken when you order your entree. I assumed the fried rice came with the meal because I don't know anyone that would have steam white rice with hibachi style food. Then again, who knows. Just be prepared to see that on your bill after and they won't tell you while you're ordering that it costs extra. Besides that, the food was good and the chef was nice.

    We came in late on a Saturday evening for my birthday dinner. Just the wife and myself. The good- Waitress was fantastic. Very sweet elderly Asian lady who was eager to help, attentive, and quick. Our table cook as very fun and interacted with the kids at the table really well. Bad- Food, prices, structure was old and looked badly aged, again the food was just really awful. We did go about an hour before close, though this is no excuse in my mind. We are frequent visitors of another hibachi establishment in the suburbs and found benihana non competitive on price and quality. Additionally, the sushi was very bland and slimy.

Our chef had an attitude the whole dinner and catered to the other party that was seated next to us. I definitely did not enjoy myself as I have on previous occasions.

    The food and the chef were great but we had several problems with our meal. First off, I was supposed to get chicken fried rice but it was missing on the ticket. I didn't get my rice until after the meat was done and only after asking for it more than once. Second, the meat was cooked medium rare instead of medium well and had to be taken off of the plate and redone after everyone else's food was off the grill. I suspect this was also because it was not indicated correctly on the ticket. Finally, two of our meals were supposed to come with green tea and either ice cream or sherbet. We were given neither. Finally when we asked about it we were told that some meals came with either green tea or sherbet. Seriously - at these prices?

    We enjoy the "feel" of this place – somewhat like a family dining table but can also be private if so desired. We enjoy celebrating each other's birthday month and try to explore the various cuisine. Occasionally, we will have a light faire and enjoy appetizers and sake in the bar. When dining, Rocki's choice is my favorite. My wonderful wife enjoyed the salmon with avocado sauce. Everyone enjoyed the fried rice....a perennial favorite. The table show was entertaining as always and the service was excellent. Oh yes, try the Nigori unfiltered sake.

    In my opinion the service should match the food and vice versa. For me this was not the case. Although we had a reservation, we waited about 25min for our table. Which the host that checked is in for our reservation was not personable what so ever. Keep in mind that we were there for someone birthday, which I specified in my notes when making the reservation. Well when the waitress came to finally seat us she just walked off without us. Also, this was our first time there and a special occasion they thought it appropriate to give us a trainee.. When the hibachi chef cooked for us they forgot my fried rice and he did not do but minimal tricks. He did a beating heart and an onion train. No chopping. Service didn't match the prices.

    The waitress was the slowest I have ever had - the tables around us were done and had gone home before we even received our bills, even the ones that arrived after us. The food was extremely disappointing - bland and not anything I would ever pay money for, especially as much as they charge. Waste of my time and money, will not be back.

    The food was very good, service was excellent. The chef was too shy, he didn't say much or interact with the table as much as he should have, and soft spoken. It was hard to hear or understand him with the noise level in our section. There were way too many kids for my taste. There were two at our table and I saw at least one per table. I'd don't like sitting next to someone else's kid. I believe some rooms should be reserved for adults only, or come as a group of 8 so you can take over an entire table.

    Not a good experience almost embarrassing. Had reservation for 18 and was seated in room with two tables facing each other. One table had fast service but my table was 20 to 30 min behind on everything. One table was eating their entrees when we received our salads. We were celebrating my daughters birthday and was expecting a wonderful experience. We did have one assisting waiter that was trying his best to help and I did appreciate that. Talked to manager but didn't seem to concerned.

    I have eaten at B's since a young kid in the 80's. Over the years the quality has drastically gone down, while the prices have continually gone up. However, this dining experience, the food was probably the best it has been in many years. We all added lobster to our Filets and the quality of the Filet was as it use to be, very thick cuts and tender. However, along with the ambience, the diners were a bit too ethnic for our liking. We felt as if we were the minority. Over the years, this has become more of an issue everywhere but consistently worse at Benihanas. The Service was lacking waiting on refills of our drinks the entire night. The Chef, was very entertaining and accommodating of our special requests. The quality & taste was Superb.

    I specifically asked for a reservation at 7:45pm with our own room & we got there early (about 10 minutes) and they skipped out party for TWENTY MINUTES only to come ask us if we wanted to wait 20 more because they forgot to save us a room. After we sat down, we waited over 15 minutes for our waiter to come to us. It was terrible service. I won't go back to that location.
