Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. A visit to Benihana Dallas is like stepping into a Japanese country farmhouse among the bustle of the city. The restaurant is surrounded by a koi-filled lake. Guests cross a wooden bridge to the entrance and once inside, they are met with cordial greetings from the hosts. The restaurant consists of several smaller rooms which afford a sense of privacy; larger groups can opt for the four-table rooms located on either wing.

Diet time and we did enjoy it but..... we had an issue with another party. The other party came in and she took out a can of Lysol and sprayed the table chairs the area. They had just brought out our cart with our food and the mist got on our food. We had a huge argument with that party. It was my daughters 12th birthday and she stared crying. My issue now that we have had time to process I strongly feel that the hostess she have stopped her immediately but she just stood their and let her continue spraying. They did move them and management apologized but for us to take our daughter and experience that makes us feel sad for her, her birthday was ruined. We spent $300 and now I regret staying. She told me she’ll never forget how scared she was for her safety and as a parent this is the worst feeling in the world.

We have a tradition of celebration our families Birthdays (April/May) at Benihana. This year (2020) we were quarantined and had to push our celebrating back so getting out and being able to actually go to a restaurant was an extra special treat for us. Unfortunately, when we went to the Dallas location the Koi pond was completely drained and that was the reason for picking this location over the Plano was to enjoy the Koi pond (no koi/no water- under construction). We sat for an hour and 15 min. looking at a drained koi pond before the Hibachi chef "Henry" arrived at the grill. "Henry" with mask on didn't interact with us, no tricks, no fun... just cooked and left. We have two young boys and they love going to Hibachi... this time was VERY disappointing. Sad because my husband and I have been coming to this location since we were kids in the early 80's.

Unfortunately we were there for 2 hours. They forgot to bring the steamed rice to 3 of the guest until we were almost finished. Refills were not happening either. The staff were trying but they were clearly understaffed. They were not prepared it seemed.

I have been going to Benihanas for years in several different areas. The Dallas location was far by the worst. I asked our waiter for the sauce cups that they give you for steak and shrimp and he said he forgot and never put them out. The entertainment that is usually given was somewhat boring. The food was just ok. I will try the Irving location

The service was horrible. In our reservation I made a note that we were celebrating a birthday and our waitress did nothing to make us feel acknowledged. The other people at our table were also celebrating a birthday and they received exceptional service while we received the bare minimum. She only checked in on us once.

All was going well until some friends that I invited said that the bartender was over charging them for wine it really effected the rest of the evening. Seemed to wait about 15 min before anyone came to check on us but all in all it was ok.

I love Benihana it is my favorite restaurant but on this night which my kids had taken me to celebrate mother's day was not so good. The first thing was the bar didn't want to provide me with simple syrup for my tea to sweeten it or the server didn't want to give it to me one or the other. The next thing now mind you I eat here a lot but not necessary at this particular one but the one in Irving and I had never heard of you having to pay for fried rice with your meal an upcharge yes but to purchase a whole side then to top it off the manager on duty which I believe her name was Nancy was so rude that I definitely will not be returning to this location at all.

I was nervous about going out but it was my son's 17th birthday and we wanted to go somewhere nice. I felt completely safe at Benihana. They were clean and very safety cautious.

Of course the food and service was excellent, as it always is. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We always love going to Benihana. We were proud to be the first patrons back at the Dallas location. Everything was very sanitary and safe. Two other folks sat at the other end of the table and we had a great conversation with masks over 10 feet away. It was awesome to be back enjoying our lives!!!

I brought my 4 year old for a special birthday dinner (one that I loved growing up). It was an extremely underwhelming habatchi grill experience. From the beginning I mentioned it was my son’s birthday and expected someone to at least say happy birthday or get excited for him at the table (servers or chef)....nothing. We ordered orange juice at the beginning for him but it didn’t come out until halfway through our meal. The chef came out, did about 20 seconds of spatula spinning, and then proceeded to cook straight through the entire meal....zero showmanship (which is the point of coming to a Japanese grill)! My son wanted to leave before he was even done with the first round of fried rice (because it was honestly really boring...I don’t blame him). No tricks, no tossing food in people’s mouths, no jokes, nothing until the universal onion volcano (thank goodness) at the very end. They also brought him a bowl of ice cream with a candle, but forgot my ice cream. Overall, I was very disappointed with the experience that I handsomely paid for. Hopefully they take this feedback and re-train (or re-hire) their chefs to put on more of an enjoyable experience.

The carpet had not been vacuumed as a cigarette butt was there. I pointed this out to our server and he tried to satisfy me by saying that smoke blew in the restaurant from the outside workers. Again, I pointed to the remains of the cigarette on the carpet and he said he would get it up. He swept it away.

My brother never got his steamed rice and we asked for it twice. My mother’s and my birthday were not acknowledged even with the staff being informed. My mother had to ask 3 times for chili paste. The server was visibly irritated about me wanting a refill on my tea.

We were there for a bday celebration the cook never acknowledged the birthday person, gave a very poor performance while cooking not entertaining at all. Waiter took forever to get our orders in then took forever bringing them from the back. My california roll was warm as if it was set out all day. Overall terrible experience will not be going back to this location. Also the carpet through out the restaurant needs a deep clean or complete redo.

Disaster. We arrived prior to reservation, were told a few minutes wait. 30 minutes later a manager apologized and said she would see what she could do. Waiting area covered in trash and a random pill was on the floor. Ladies’ room had dirty toilet paper on toilet and floor. Disgusting.

They sat us by adding a seat to a corner so we could stuff ourselves in. We walked out.

We schedule a reservation at 8:30pm. The restaurant closes at 9:30. The cook did not get to the table until 10:30. The food was not seasoned, the chicken was burned. The cook was obviously ready to get off work along with the servers. It was not a great experience and we were very disappointed. We generally have a great time at Benihana. But this time no one was able to eat their food and because of its quality we all placed it in the trash. We spent our monies and we were very dissatisfied.
