Benihana - Plano
CasualComparing the Plano location to the Dallas location, the ambience is quite different. I was not expecting a "warehouse" feel and the dress is VERY casual. So if you are going for a romantic dinner or maybe another special occasion, go to the Dallas location. There were a lot of children and it was quite loud. The food, as always, was excellent, but I would not suggest this location for an intimate dinner for two.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it...Can't go wrong with this place. Easy to get to off the DNT and lots of parking. Food was great, service was great. We had a wonderful dinner.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & but Tight Tablesthe restaurant is very large, and they take reservations - and even were running on time with the reservations. They set the tables a bit tight, we were sitting on top of each other and had very little room for our drinks and plates on the table. They should limit the amount of people at each table. Our chef was very energetic and personable. Wait staff was very attentive.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingWe had a great experience for our anniversary. Usually we go to another hibachi place but that evening no tables were available. We tried Benihana instead. We are glad we did. We will never go to the other place again. Our chef Oono was phenomenal. Recommend for all occassions.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFun 13th BirthdayMy daughter really enjoyed her birthday dinner here! There was another family at our table with twins that were also celebrating a birthday, which my daughter really liked. The atmosphere was fun and perfect for her special day and first experience at Benihana.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationThe chef and the food were great but the waitress was not very friendly and on top of things. Very ditzy. I had to make a special trip back to the restaurant the next day because she did not give us our birthday photo. That was very inconvenient since I live in Lewisville!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Chef was amazing.Food was great. Chef was amazing. Location is hard to get to.

What a guilty pleasure this restaurant is. Service was wonderful. We ate at 5:00 p.m. and by 6:30, the entire restaurant was filled with people trying to get in. Clearly, I'm not the only fan of Benihana Plano!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous dining experience!Chef Edgar brought it, for sure!

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Plano/Frisco area,5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experience!We enjoy dining at Benihana. The service is great once you are seated. Sometimes the wait to be seated is a bit too long even with reservations. The food is always great and the show is a treat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCarol's Benihana BirthdayWe've been coming to Benihana for my wife's birthday since we've been married. 5 years now. It is always a wonderful & delicious experience. We absolutely LOVE Benihana & always look forward to when we return.
Now, if I can only convince her to go even when it's not her birthday. :)5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was great!!I took my girlfriend for her birthday and it was great overall! Our cook was outstanding and very personable and the food was great as well. Can be a little on the pricy side, but it was worth it! Also, which ever punch I had, it was great! Great for those who enjoy good food, good drinks, and good company!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there to celebrateWe were there to celebrate our son's 17th birthday and they truly made him feel special. It was fun for all!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a delight! Chef EdgarAlways a delight! Chef Edgar was charming, funny, and prepared a delicious meal for everyone. The entire table was very pleased!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Birthdays & Special TimesReally good food, though admittedly not enough rice for my tastes, and awesome service makes this a great place to go for birthdays and special occasions. I got the Chateaubriand Steak and Scallops and, OMG, the steak almost literally melted in my mouth, it was so tender. While it can be a little pricy, averaging about 30-35 dollars a plate, the $30 birthday certificate really helps to offset the cost. In addition, the Sushi is phenomenal and extremely reasonably priced; great for chilling after work. Also, if you like things done a certain way, don't be afraid to ask the chef to do extra stuff; just make sure that, if there are other people at the grill, you ask them if it is ok because everything is fixed communally.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBob BirthdayI had mentioned when making online reservation that my guest was celebrating his birthday, was assured the complimentary dessert would be taken care of, and it was. I did not need to remind anyone upon arrival. The wine serving was modest, considering the cost of what I chose (one of the lowest prices).4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated AdministrativeWe celebrated Administrative Assistant's Day!

The food was very good and the service was good also. We enjoyed this for my husband's birthday!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to haveThis is a great place to have "dinner & a show"! The Chet's (entertainment) abilities are hit & miss. I've had the best luck with a great show chef on Friday or Saturday dinner time. It seems that's when the best are out & entertaining & engaging with guests.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI eat at this Benihana restaurantI eat at this Benihana restaurant at least once a week. Today was excellent and no exception to the quality of service and food I always receive at the Plano location.

Since Benihana's forces you to eat w others, they have to take a hit on ambiance this time.2/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
