Benihana - Beaverton
We were put into a back room which was extremely cold. The air conditioning was so strong that we were shivering during out entire meal. It kind of ruined the evening. The seater said she would try to adjust the air but we didn't notice it. Also, they forgot to bring a filet that we ordered and we had to remind them (not the cook's fault but the seater).
Great place to entertain your kids or enjoy a fun night out with a group. Skip if you are going in a date
Absolutely amazing... staff and food was top notch!
Had a reservation and still had to wait 30 min to be seated. Once seated was notified by the host that there was only one cook so our wait time for food would be longer than normal. Despite these two mishaps we decided to stick around until we got a server who was extremely rude. We ended up leaving before we could even receive water. This was our first time to Benihana’s and our last.
such a great experience! great chef! love the manager!
The cook was terrible. Period
I communicated with customer service since July 25th regarding my birthday certificate. I was told that my email unfollowed Benihana and I had to reaccept email notifications. I did so and did not receive certificate. I resigned up for bday club and tried to communicate with customer service and received no reply and no certificate. We had a reservation on August 15 and I never received the certificate. It would have been nice to have it since our bill was 400.00!! And over 200.00 for our two additional guests who paid separately.
Celebrated our grandson’s birthday there. Had a 20 minute after our reserved time before being seated, after that, had a great evening
The chef prepared our seafood slightly rare and it was actually the most delicious we've ever had having ordered the same seafood at this location. We really appreciate the birthday coupons, THANK YOU!
The chicken/shrimp yakisoba and vegetables/rice were delicious. Our server did an outstanding job entertaining us and serving us.
Our reservation was at 11am and were seated until 11:45, On top of that chef took another +15 mn to get to our table. Don’t understand the point of making reservations if is not respected.
Our Chef and server were outstanding - welcoming, entertaining, and professional! The food was delicious and perfectly cooked to our liking - will be back again!
Celebrated Mom & daughter birthday's...it was a fun night
I loved our chef. He was funny and down to earth. Had one of the best times with this chef.
Overall it was great. Good service, great food, good company. Only problem was I ordered the Benihana excellence, which was supposed have teriyaki beef; instead, it was prepared with shoyu. Still very tasty but not teriyaki as stated in menu.
Lately benihana has steered toward the modern look, plain white plates, simple cups...
I know it's to save costs and have a modern atmosphere, but my whole family misses the rustic plates and bamboo silverware.
It will always be a bit on the spendy side, especially when the prices go up every year.
I reccomend a soup+salad+fried rice small lunch, something 10$ or under, often we buy the salad dressing to take home but would totally order it in restraunt if it wasn't 5$ for some iceburg and 1oz of dressing.
Ive had Amy as a chef twice now for different years of birthdays.
Alexis was great too and funny.
The staff was awesome, our cook David was extremely funny, and the food was really great. We had a lot of fun overall.
We always love going to Benihana's. My 8 year old grandson chose this restaurant for our special day out.
Brian, our chef was positively entertaining. Our server Alexis was friendly, patient and helpful. It was my daughter's 19th birthday and a kind of family reunion with myself and my kids. Thank you for making this a very special, memorable event. Definitely, will recommend to others and come back for a return visit.
Our chef was so attentive and cooked our food perfectly but the place was overwhelming too smoky and extremely noisy
Roger provided a fantastic exhibition of his skills and the food was excellent
We came to Benihana for a birthday and boy did we have not only have a delicious meal, but great service as well! Matt did an outstanding job at the habachi grill and was fun and interactive as well. We will definitely be returning. Thanks Matt!
Birthday celebration. We had good conversation with new people.
Our waitress was super sweet.
Food was great. Our cook was a bit quiet but the food was good.
Benihana’s is about sharing your space with others at the table for 8 people- unless you’re party is 8 people! We have been going here for over 25 years and often it depends on how entertaining the chefs are. This last visit with company from Germany was excellent! Great food great fun for everyone!
Was not happy as we had to sit in far back room, it is always freezing in there and there is no carpet and everything echos. I am an avid supporter of this restaurant but this room ruins it. told manager he did not offer any comps or apologies etc. Not happy!!!
Great place to celebrate. The food is delicious. Sage was a fantastic chef
The service and food was awesome as usual. The only bad thing was we had reservation and it still took 30 minutes to be seated at a table that was still dirty. But I will still go back.
The cook was very personable and the server was great, very attentive.
When will I receive the $30 birthday certificate?
Took my son for his birthday, he had fun watching the chef cook at our table and I enjoyed the corny jokes! The filet mignon was juicy and tender! The 5 courses of soup, salad, fried or steamed rice and vegetables and main course were all delish!:) 🍣 Was fresh tasting!
Chris "White Carlos" was our chef and he was the best chef we have ever had. He was sweet and kind, funny and the food was outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will request to be at his table from now on!
Had reservations for 6:15, but seated at 6:30. Seated in a back room away from everyone else. The person doing the cooking was pleasant and funny, but the other wait person was mostly non existent. We had all of our food, but no rice -- had to ask for it. Refills on drinks were problematic. Everyone was still hungry when the meal was over. Overall a disappointment.
Our chef, Chris did a great job as well as everyone else
Friendly staff, fun ambiance and great food. Our 3 little kids were welcomed and had a wonderful experience
We have been to this location several times. We appreciate that the chefs to try to change up the style while the food remains excellent. This time the food was especially well seasoned and the chef worked well with the other group's special order/request.
We are old Benihana customers and frequently visit the restaurant. It goes without saying that we have been quite satisfied with the food and service provided by Benihana. Our last visit of a few days ago might have been an exception when we felt the quality of the food and cook’s attentiveness to his work was not on a scale we had come to expect. We have had this cook previously and know that he is quite capable of doing a good job. We felt that his lack of focus on his work was due to a rather excessive interaction with some customers at the table. We ended up with some overdone meat and uncooked zucchini. Although we requested no butter on our food, this request was at time forgotten by cook’s distraction.
We used to go to Benihana a lot-it has definitely gone down in terms of service and value in the last few years. Our reservation was at 6:15pm-on a Thursday- , but we didn't even order drinks until almost 7:15 and didn't leave until 9pm! The server was ok, the chef (Jacob) was excellent and very apologetic. We were there dining on gift cards and coupons given to us at the last visit for the same issues. We love the food, but going there is far more of a hassle than it used to be... I feel like they are taking too many reservations and are not equipped for the business, unfortunately.
We were all very entertained and left with a full belly.
Alexi did an amazing job cooking our food. She is highly recommended!!
Our chef David was FANTASTIC! I’ve been coming here a few times a year for a decade and I can’t remember having a better and more interesting chef.
I’m a little bored with the whole “show” overall. I really like the food, but it always takes so long. He made it fun and engaging again. It was a great night!
