Tasty food service was quick clean and comfortable dining room. Great easy free parking
My first time there for my wife birthday and she loved it.
Always fun to have dinner at Benihana - celebrated friend's birthday with her & were entertained by talented chef cooking in front of us. My favorite dish is "Rocky's Choice" for a combo of chicken and steak on the teppenyaki grill, also worth splurging the extra for their chicken friend rice. If you are adverse to crowds and noise I suggest going early in the evening before it gets crowded. Look forward to returning!
I wish I didn't have to give any stars worst dinning experience ever. Decor was worn and dated. Food was tasteless, and the staff was unpleasant and dismissive.
I had a reservation at 7:45 p.m., the table was given to me at 8:45, then it took more than 2 hours in the whole process, the check took more than 1 hour 15 minutes to start cooking. I was more than 3 hours in the restaurant 2 hours 15 minutes were waiting for the table or the food and 45 minutes was really what I enjoyed .. Terrible service, I think that very few people work for the restaurant demand
Experience SUCKED! Had a reservation and waited almost two hours to be seated. Waited another hour for food to be cooked! Never again!!
Benihana Bethesda normally runs like clockwork, but last Sunday it seems that the manager forgot that it was a holiday weekend and the place was a complete mess. There weren't enough cooks and the wait was horrendous. We had a 6:45 reservation, but we weren't seated until at least 7:45 and didn't get food until after 9 p.m. We were offered a free appetizer! We didn't leave until after 10:30 and we had small children in our party. Really, a terrible experience. So much for my son's birthday celebration.
Restaurant was crowded n
Benihana was great but as always, even reservations do not help. We still waited 40 minutes for a table (even though we had 6pm reservations via Open Table).
Not our first time at Benihana and we are always happy to be there! The kids have a ball of a time, the food is quite nice and everyone can kick back and relax. The only 'complaint' ( nothing that would prevent us from returning) is that we would appreciate it if we were not rushed through at the end of our meal. We were still working on our food when we were asked about dessert, and despite making it clear that we were still eating, a few minutes later, our check appeared without a request on our part, with an added 'whenever you're ready'. We understand that it's a busy night on Sundays and other people are waiting to be seated, but there are probably better ways to go about this kind of thing.
Had a good night out and the food was good. They where crowded was glad I made reservations, there were a lot of kids and large parties there. The chef was entertaining it would be a great place to take a large group of people but, suitable for two as well.
Excellent service and food. Will definitely come again.
Benihana is one of my favorite places however this past visit was terrible service and food. Very disappointed especially since I was celebrating my birthday. Nothing more to say other than terrible
Too much food...warning! I hadn't planned well and felt bad when the main dish was ready, I ate 2 bites. I would suggest a cold drink with ice. When the place is packed and the grills on, it gets warm...and hard to find your drink person. Kids totally entertained :)
It’s was good
Hate being packed in like sardines at this restaurant. Luckily, we had an extra seat between us and other family. Food good, server fair. The prices are too high, portions too small. Still, fine for a visit or two a year
By far my worst dining experience ever, the manager had the worst attitude not hospitable at all, the chef did not engage with us at all, there was a fight that broke out between the manager and another person dining, the chef dropped a bowl while cooking that cut my foot and he not once apologized. I drove 1hr and 25 mins to this restaurant thinking somehow we receive a 4 Star dining experience on Valentines Day and was the complete opposite. My table was still waiting for our food, while the restaurant was closed, cleaners were vacuuming around our table and trying to clean what they could until we were still waiting for the rest of our food to be prepared,I was unable to dine in and eat because the restaurant was closed and most of my food was cold because the chef took so long preparing my choice of meat, funny but we received our appetizers last. Very disappointed in my overall experience!!! Oh yea I was seated 20 mins after my reservation time.
The food was exceptionally good! Everything melted right in your mouth. I wouldn't want any other hibachi after eating at this place!
Me and partner loved it!! The food is delicious and we had a great time.
