This is my favorite place to go for a very nice dinner! My kids favorite place to eat and it’s always held that special quality that they will pass onto their kids! Now I get to share with my girlfriend and her kids!

This is our fourth year coming to Benihana’s as a tradition for my sons birthday. The first year was awesome, delicious, fun and great. The last 3 years have progressively gotten worse each time. This last time I think the chef was high. You could tell he just didn’t care. The food was being slopped around. Rice was going everywhere. He was cutting up the food so badly it wasn’t cut in straight lines. He was doing a hack job on it all. If Benihana’s doesn’t fully vet their chefs then that’s really crappy of them. They should make the chefs cook in front of the senior ones. This guy couldn’t catch a shrimp in his hat, he wasn’t interacting with the kids. The food tasted terrible. Really disappointed and probably won’t go back.

Tons of fun! Christopher was so good and energetic. I will specifically ask for him again when I return. Food was fresh and plentiful. Manager also came by to see if everything went well. Haven't had that kind of service from other resteruants in years.

We were there celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday all was going well until the chef started making unprofessional jokes to my fourteen year old son and wouldn’t stop I’m an adult and it was totally “bullying”to where I had to say something to him but my girlfriend hit me on the leg telling ME to stop!! My guest all made the comment to me that he was rude. NOT THE BEST EXPERIENCE.... too bad I don’t know if we will be back! Love the food but my son shouldn’t have been exposed to that not acceptable!! David Etheridge

I'll go as long as they keep giving a birthday reward, that will make it worthwhile. Otherwise, it really doesn't stand out as far as Hibachi goes. There are several in the area that I would consider a better value.

I already emailed Benihana directly. Once we were seated and orders taken it was close to 1.5 hours before they even started cooking the food. I know when we go here that you don't want to be in a hurry but over an hour before they even come out to prepare the food is a little much. As always the food was good, I just find that the Beaverton Benihana seems to be going downhill a bit. I would have expected a manager to come over and apologize. Also when we arrive you have to be there within 10 minutes of your reservation but they can wait 20 minutes to seat you? There are other similar options and I may try them before Benihana in the future.

Have a great day.

I’ve rated at Benihana Beaverton several times and this last visit the food was sup par and not that good. I was highly disappointed. The shrimp tasted fishy and wasn’t seasoned at all. I was disappointed.

Its a special occasion place and is very consistent with food the family enjoys. Always fun to watch the chef's do some tricks (many seemed a little less practiced as they dropped things or didn't get it into their hat) good entertainment for all ages. Prices are not bad; not cheap...but when you include the entertainment its still a good value. It was exceptionally packed for a Tuesday 7:30pm dinner - always get a reservation! As always, your clothes will smell like oil/smoke and need to be dry cleaned or washed or thoroughly aired out outside overnight. We never take our coats inside as they need to get dry cleaned; costing half the price of the meal. Server was really good, attentive, friendly!

I've gone to Benihana for years. I've always sat at the end of the table to eat. The issue with that is when the chefs are divining up the courses because they cook in bulk I end up with very little food and I've always felt cheated. However this time around I got Sage. He was the BEST one I've had the pleasure of being served by. He was great, attentive, funny and FAIR with his rations. After all these years I finally felt like I got my money's worth. Thank you Sage!!

It was a lot of fun, a great meal with a show. Although it was mine and my mother's birthdays the chef also geared the show towards my 5-year-old and he loved it.

we had reservations at 5:30pm and were seated promptly. Our chef/cook didnt come until 6:45pm. We were told that they ran out of chefs. Not quite sure how that works because the table next to us got seated at 6pm and had their chef show up one hour before ours did. Since our reservations is 30 mins before theirs shouldn't we be served first? We were waiting for our meal a total of of 2 hrs and 30 mins including prep/cooking. the chef asked 1 hr into cooking, is everyone's food ok? they totally forgot my order and didnt give my items to the chef which is weird because he repeated my order before he started cooking and didn't notice he hasnt given me my food? he cooked my food in a hurry and ended giving it to me raw. He had to recook making me wait some more while other people are already half done eating. This dinner was a disaster.

Unfortunately I feel like this place has gone downhill, the whole experience isn't what it used to be. You would walk in and people would be oooooing and aweing at the amazing talent from the chefs and the chefs were also just as enthusiastic. On my recent visit this was not the case. No one seemed excited, our chef lacked much enthusiasm or tricks for that matter. He also squirted me in the eye with a lemon which I know was an accident but he wasn't really apologetic. The wait was also a little long, we had a reservation and by the time we were seated and got water it was already 40min past our reservation time. Don't think I'll be coming back anytime soon after the disappointing visit.

Went to celebrate birthday. Very good company. Energetic waiter and also very attentive. Chef was good and knowledgeable. The food was cooked to perfection. Had the Land & Sea. Scallops were excellent and steak was perfect Medium Rare. Even had some to bring home. Even reheated the next day it was still mouth watering tender. Highly recommended.
