About Benihana - Dallas

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.

Went to Benihana for my daughters birthday after looking for a fun place to go to include adults and kids. I remember when Benihana was a step above the local hibachi places in the area but no more. Average service, below average hibachi performance. Will stay close to home next time and save some money for a better experience.

This was a good outing for my wife's birthday. Not the best place for a vegan, like myself. I did not know that butter is used in the rice and vegetables. High level of cross contamination with the use of shared utensils and grill surface. Overall good place that my wife enjoyed.

I loved the food and the service but the restaurant was not very clean. The decor was dated and this actually highlighted the uncleanliness.

We arrived on time for our reservation and over an hour later and they said it was going to be over 45 minutes still, we were still not seated and had to leave the restaurant. This was a 16th bday party and we had a specific time frame b/c it was followed by a surprise party at home, so we could not stay 1 hr 45 min after our reservation. It completely ruined the bday party! I called the restaurant the next day to complain, they said they were overbooked and reportedly they relayed the message to the district manager would was going to call me. No call ever came. Absolutely unacceptable.

A group of 9 from my office had lunch to celebrate 3 October birthdays. We had a great time - we were able to laugh and talk while being entertained by the chef's performance. The food was outstanding as usual. I'm always in a self battle not to eat all my rice by the time veggies and meat are done:( My meal could very well be Hibachi chicken with rice!!!

Service was great, I was with a party of 16. Our 2 tables were the last for the 2 chefs that cooked for us. Our chef was not entertaining at all, he just wanted to get through with us and go home. He was rushing and the food presentation was horrible. We spent a lot of money, and did not complain to the manager, what would be the point.
It was my birthday and I wish I would celebrated this milestone somewhere else.

Thanks

Server was extremely slow. We asked for things 4or 5 times before we got it. If we got it at all! She put the wrong charges on 2 credit cards causing an overdraft on one of them. Food was awesome as always and our cook Cung was great! As always, the sinks in the women's restroom were grimy because the correct product is not used when cleaning them. I have told the managers this about 15 times but obviously it is ignored. Very frustrating.

We always go for the kids birthdays. They love the entertainment by the chef. Unfortunately we felt like our chef was inexperienced or maybe not as fun. He hardly did anything exciting and only a few “tricks”. We will definitely go back but will be hoping for it to be more fun!

We were running late due to traffic and they were ok with that. Food was delicious. Portions seem to have gotten smaller. We were never offered refills in our sauces and when we asked he would tap the spoon at the bottom sauce bowls which didn't find sanitary. As well as, a lady wanting butter and he lean to give her some and asked her to scrape off with her folk she was eating with. So gross. Makes me wonder if he washes his hands.

Well we lived in SF and we decided to visit Dallas and Benihana is something me and my husband would go.
We made a booking because it is far from our hotel crown plaza at the Dallas CBD.we arrived 10minutes early but we didn't get a table for another 50 minutes.and that was horrible.we sorted at the bar, and bartender was rude and service was shocking. Yes it is quite busy but still bar should notice customer.Bartender is rude, because I ordered a cocktail and it doesn't taste right so I asked if I can have a bit of vodka and all he said there's a charge with an attitude. And all I said no problem, I can pay. Then when we get our table after almost an hour, long wait... food is ok. But not too happy for the long wait especially if we have a reservation.Then leaving the restaurant we asked for a cab, and the young receptionist at the front said no taxi here you gave yo find one outside. That's even more shocking. Then my husband came back, upset but still calm called manager and asked for a cab, and she managed to call one.
We just want to get out of this horrible place.. we notice the SF Japantown especially , service was amazing. We just realised the staff of Benihana was not trained properly, rude, arrogant and lack of personality.i am a manager of a retail and I know that customer comes first before you get the business.But on this case, all I can say we wished we didn't visited Benihana,

Never recommend and don't even want to think about it.By the way we been to lots of fine dining, and also beautiful restaurant in different countries but this one is the worst one😡

The food was amazing!! One of my favorite places, but the server we had this time was terrible. She had an attitude, didn't refill our drinks on her own, was nowhere to be found before or during the meal, while other servers were attending to their tables regularly. I hope not to get this server again in the future. Otherwise, it was a great birthday dinner.
