You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail.

Good overall and very tasty. Only giving 4 stars because the wait staff was a bit pushy with ordering and the tip. Food was great but portions seemed scalled back for the $ amount.

Food was amazing, atmosphere was great and the restaurant looked clean... the only problem was it was PACKED in there and that could make some people uncomfortable in this Covid era.

Chef was great, food was okay. My plate was dirty, floor was dirty but the worst part was seeing a coach road inside across from where we was sitting. The other party that was sitting across from us completely got up and left. No one came in to apologize or anything. Not a good experience and it was my husband’s birthday.

The host stand was horrible. We almost left. It was crowded at the front, everyone that went up to the host was told we will seat you in a few minutes (we waited 20 minutes) everyone there had reservations. The hosts were gossiping with each other and texting in their phones. The food was good and our waitress and cook were great, but probably won’t be returning because of our experience with the front of house staff.

Benihana has always been one of our favorite restaurants, we have been at least 6 times to the restaurant in dallas, and in each of those past visits, I have had issues with being seated on time or our waiter confusing our order, but I my most recent visit on 7/21/21 was by far the worst visit I ever! I’ll star by saying that we arrived at 7:38 pm to check in having a reservation at 8:00 pm but we had to wait to be settled in our table until 8:30, after being setter the server took some time to bring out drinks, so I decided to get up and go wash my hands on the mean time, considering that our drink and soup were served at 8:55 pm. When I got to into the lady’s room the place was a wreck there was paper and water all over the floor I decided to ignore the mess and proceed with washing my hands and I accidentally slipped with the water that was on the floor, after that I’d advised the hostess of what had happened and they decided to ignore what had happened and add extra towels instead of mopping the floor. I decided to try ignore what had happened and maybe try to have a better time at the restaurant and enjoy my dinner, but was I wrong, the waiter missed out order. Our food was late, the chef decided to make his own rice instead of the rice that we had ordered, and when we try to let him know that that was not our food, he only said i won’t charge this for you, so you can eat it. This place was amazing food but HORRIBLE service and staff! I would honestly recommend check other locations in dfw.

It was my birthday and we went to Benihana to celebrate. When my party of 6 was all seated at our tables,our host was very professional and quick. We loved our chef as he cooked to food in front of us. The food was good and service was quick and efficient. We ended up with a birthday ice-cream, I loved it and the service was great.

Haven't visited this location in a while, but the food was okay. The cook was awesome ans had a great attitude. The waitress was a bit slow ans not very attentive. This location could use some upgrading as this carpet looks very old and worn and baseboards looked out dated and old.

Our experience was not as good as years prior when we lived in Dallas. The shrimp appetizer and the shrimp in the Samurai meal were over cooked. Filet was great and chef was entertaining.

The food was amazing the service was good and so was the hibachi chef. The only thing I didn’t understand is we were asked if we were celebrating anything which we were it was our 5 year anniversary. The waiter said nothing did nothing. Not looking for free stuff but if your gonna ask then make sure the server at least asks and helps us celebrate. We could have gone somewhere else

I ordered rare steak and it was barely cooked with a very cold center. The fried rice was dryer than normal, we asked for extra garlic butter o. Rice and steaks and didn't reciece it. Our waitress didn't fill out glasses nearly enough maybe 3x. Our chef was not very interactive or fun at all. Very disappointing , we come to this one all the time and it seems like service keeps declining.

The music is too loud.
The place was a bit dirty.
The food was low quality.
The host staff walking is to the table was a little rude, and was unprepared to seat us.

Parking situation is terrible and valet ignored everyone.

Benihana use to be high-class….

So disappointed this time! We had to ask 3 times for drink refills- the bathrooms were nasty dirty- we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated even with reservations. This is not the same Benihana service and cleanliness we were used to before. The cook was “ok” not very entertaining... guess I just expected more spending $327!

Somewhat a fun environment but the service lacks a bit. Waiter was nice but not great. The guy that cooks your food at the table was not engaged, seemed to be put out that he was there, and made a mess of the table when we asked for more sauce, splattered it everywhere. We were there because my son had a birthday and he thought it would be fun. He enjoyed it. I likely won't go back. The floor between the 2 areas where we were dining appeared to have enough food on it to serve an additional table, pretty gross. All in all a disappointing experience other than my son enjoying his 13th birthday. With all that Dallas has to offer, I would go elsewhere.

This by far the worst experience I've had at Japanese steak house. To start with upon being seated we waited to be greeted by our server for about 10 min. Then she took our drink order . Some ordered fountain drinks others ordered alcohol, well the alcohol drinks were forgotten. We were 1/2 way through the meal (proteins cooking) sever never returned. I ask the busser who delivered the salads and finally the chef was able to get a response. The server then shows up with drinks that you could tell had been sitting at the bar for a while (condensation on the glass).

The chef wasn't much better he spoke he attempted to spin and flip the spatula which almost one our guess and he says "I'M new" not funny. After that he never spoke again and only attempted the onion smoke stack which didn't go very well. He cooked lobster and shrimp on the grill before cooking the other protein. Soo much for food allergies.

I then paid the bill which was highly expensive , but in opinion not worth it. On the way out the manager listened and agreed the experience was not what it should have been, but he did not offer any compensation as I had traveled from out of town.

In my advice go somewhere else.

The food was delicious. The people at our table were entertaining because they had never eaten at Benihana before.
Benihana is a great place to bring kids because they get excited to see all the tricks the cooks do.

Old place in desperate need of a remodel. Sad, because the building has a lot of ambiance. Food pretty good. Service, so so. Had to keep reminding waitress of what was requested/ needed. No red napkin for anyone at the table. Waitress did not offer green tea or ice cream. I had to ask. The place seriously needs attention.

The server appeared to be high, she knocked over so many dishes and our sauces. Talked about her prison ID number
Asking the table to show her their inmate ID number. Just an overall horrible experience. The service and the quality at this location has just decreased so much. I will not return again.

Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were not seated until 6:00. While our chef was amazing and the food was good, the restaurant was dirty, the bathrooms were filthy and without supplies. The hostesses were not rude but not helpful and clearly did not want to be there. There was a dress code posted but but not enforced. We had young children with us and some of the attire of the patrons was truly offensive (bare skin, super revealing, tattered etc). It was very hard to explain to our little ones why they had to dress up and no one else did. It was certainly was not worth the $500 we spent and we will not be returning.
