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!

    The restaurant is tucked away and is a little hard to find. Once there it's OK. The bar is blah. The dining experience is fun and the food is good.

    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.

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.

    Dined on 5/19/2014
    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

    We had reservations at 7:30 pm and were not seated until 8:15. The chef didn't begin cooking until 9:00pm. The front staff and manager were surprisingly rude and nonchalant when we tried to express our frustrations. Because of the horrible customer service we experience, we will never return to Benihana's -Las Colinas. We will just bite the bullet and drive to the one on Dallas even though it's a lot further. Thanks for ruining my fiancé' birthday

    After having gone to Jinbeh my whole life going to Benihana was a huge change. I've always put up with the sometimes rude and inconvenient service offered by Jinbeh, but about two weeks ago I decided I was fed up and I'd like to try that infamous place known as Benihana. And let me tell you– I am SO glad I did! Although the food was a bit pricier, it was worth it for the kind of service we received while there. The food was made in front of us by a chef who was very energetic and served us generously. Unlike at Jinbeh, my boyfriend and I were able to split a meal and got soup and salad for both of us without an additional charge for each. Not to mention the folks we met while there, Wishbone Ash band members, made the meal even better.

    We had a great time and food was good, but I really missed not having the Japanese garden that they have at the restaurant in Dallas. I also was really disappointed with the noise level. You couldn't talk to anyone that wasn't sitting right next to you because of the noise level. The Dallas Benihana's has more walls and I think that makes a huge difference.

    When our daughter said she wanted to come here for her birthday we were surprised, of all the wonderful restaurants - Benihana? Well we are eating our words. The staff from hostess to waiter to chef were wonderful. The food is delicious and very reasonable. I love that Benihana is a dining experience and not just dinner out. I highly recommend Benihana and if you are going to Las Colinas , ask for Danny for your waiter and Luis for your chef - 5 Stars!

    I heard nothing but good news about Benihana's, however the chairs are too close together. I could almost feel the person next to me breathing. The tables are too small. We had to keep adjusting our dinnerware to accommodate each other. And lastly being a southern belle flavor is a big deal, and the food was bland. Disappointed LADinner

    I went here for my birthday, because I knew they had the Endless Sushi. It's nearly $30, but considering what all accompanies the meal, not including the Sushi (3 rounds, up to 5 rolls per round) it's actually quite the bargain! They were courteous as could be, made great recommendations, and went out of their way to apologize for how long it took. The place was busy, so it was understandable, and it wasn't the sushi chef's being slow, it was just THAT busy. Do I recommend this place? Absolutely! This place is top notch in my book! One of the best dining experiences, so much so we were still talking about it the night after.

    Staffing appears to have become an issue. There was no one at the front desk. They were short of servers. Our server spoke very poor English. He was clearly fluent in Spanish. He also lacked fundamental training or courtesies. Management was different than in the past. Customers were jammed into tables so eating space was limited.. However, there were plenty of open tables. The only saving grace was that the chef was someone who has cooked for us before and he was excellent.

    The vegetables are sorely lacking from their dishes. My wife and I each received a very small serving of zuchinni. Then the chef prepared the protein in my meal alone and served it to me. There were 4 others at the table. After I had finished my zuchinni,protien and rice the chef then grilled some onions and mushrooms and put them on my plate. Who wants to eat grilled mushrooms and onions 10 minutes after the meal has been eaten. We were so disappointed with our experience that we have no plans to ever dine in this establishment again.
