A word from Benihana - Las Colinas
Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.

Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

    My dining experience was quite superb! I was in love with the scenery of the restaurant and the style and architecture. Also, the service was outstanding and I was never disappointed. The chinaware was beautiful and very fancy. Our chef didn't do as many fun tricks as I would've liked, but it was still fun to watch. Overall, I was pleased and satisfied with my dinner.

    So usually my boyfriend and I go for dinner at different benihana locations and together it was our first time at the las colinas location. Everything was good except the cook wasnt hype enough for us.. he was more into space and what others were doing and we had no enjoyment which made the whole table quiet and not a fun experience.

    We went to celebrate my 25th, my sister's 21st and my father's 51st birthdays. Not only is their dinner a wonderful value, but we all registered for their "Chefs Table" ahead of time and our birthday meals were free. Its basically on going courses for an hour, with live entertainment from their talented chefs, for what you would pay for a nice dinner almost anywhere. There were a ton of birthdays around the restaurant being celebrated and its pretty obvious why- Great food, great ambiance, great value, free birthday dinner: an all around great experience.

    We've been to the Benihana as part of large family groups and as just a couple, and it's been fun on all occasions. This past visit was to celebrate my wife's birthday, and the service was great, using the award from Chef's Table. Our chef this time was quite good and very entertaining.

    I wouldn't go unless I'm willing to spend over $20 per person, but the quality of the food and the show that the chef puts on is well worth it. If you have less than 8 at your party, you'll be sitting around a grill with strangers but my wife and I didn't find it to be awkward at all because we were mostly watching the chef. Great atmosphere, fresh food, and a truly exotic experience! If you're a seafood fan, the lobster tail is especially tasty as well as the calamari. Be ready to pay good money, but you'll get your money's worth.

    We have been to this Benihana many times and it seems like it has just gone down hill. Our waitress was pretty slow, she never brought out our appetizer and then she messed up on the bill. The chef did not do anything fancy like in the old days but the food tasted pretty good.

    We just wanted a table and order off of the sushi menu. Instead we got to wait for 40 minutes to be seated with two other couples that clearly didn't want to be sat together which made the whole evening awkward. I can't believe how much time would go by between visits from "server" and servings. Had to ask 3 times for steamed rice while everyone else was finished eating. Water glasses and wine glasses stayed empty for most of dinner

    I am so sorry about this because my housband is a General Manager in a restaurant, but the attention was terrific, we arrived at 9:40 and our waiter was very, very rude, he tell us that we only have 20 min. to be out, and he speak high and agressive. We went to celebrate Birthday Party's Friend Imelda Fuentes. we recommended her Benihana because we love suchi and everything there , but we felt embarraced with she and her husband , all the thing that we lived there was terrible, the waiter never gave us the thing necesaries. It was our 3er. time in Benihana , but our first in this Las Colinas, but our words when finished was never after we want came back here. Sorry about. it is a nice place, but terrific experienced.

    Food was good but I had to reorder something else on menu because they were out of blue ocean and chief had to keep leaving our table to get items he needed .they sat baby next to me and we were there to celebrate our anniversary and and boy put his hand in my sauce. The price we paid for two and to be sat next to busy body baby was not atmosphere I was looking forward to. I asked to take some fried rice with me and was told the kitchen was closed. Excellent food but not to happy about over all service.

    Where to start...have been eating at Benihana's since 1973 in New York City and I can say Rocki wouldn't allow the name on this store. The staff attidude, overall service, presentation and food quality does not come close to upholding the Benihana tradition and expectation. Will never eat there again.

    We had an 8 pm reservation for a party of six through Open Table. Arriving 10 minutes early, we were told reservations don't matter, we will be taken in order. After a 35 minute wait, we were seated at a table. For the next hour, we sat with the soup course and then salad. At 9:30' our first hot food came off the grill--a taste of shrimp. Our chef, Manny, was the only highlight of the night. He did a good job with our food. But the room was hot and smokey. No management response to our complaints at all. None of us will be going back!!

    My husband and I both love the B. He done eat vegetables so I always order a side of shrimp and fried rice and I eat his soup and salad and all the grilled vegetables and he gets steak and jumbo shrimps with 2 fried rice. I bring home leftovers every time. Our server and our chef were awesome. Can't wait to go back in August and September with our birthday vouchers. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    My family and friends went to celebrate an Graduation. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the food. Benihana's was management and servers were very accomidating. Even though I received for 8 on open table and it would not accept 10 they did inform to call the restaurant next time because open table only allows 8 as a limit. Either way they still allowed 2 more to be added to the table at the restaurant which was very nice for them to add the 2 others.

    No ambiance, and the hostesses made us feel like we should be thankful for their attention in this empty restaurant. The bar tender couldn't be bothered with taking payment nor help his wait staff with their drink orders. Our waitress, though nice, seemed overwhelmed and incapable of a smooth service and our chef seemed brand new. He did however prepare a decent meal. We waited over 40 minutes to receive our check due to the waitress figuring out separating drinks from the meal for the two business men seated with us. In the meanwhile, why not bring us our dessert and to go boxes while waiting for the bill- steak loses some of its appeal after sitting that long. Overall, food good, service really bad
