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.

This was my first time trying Benihana’s. We made reservations and ended up still waiting an hr or so before being seated. However, the food and service was great.

We had a great time, this dinner was the kick-off for celebrating my husband's 40th birthday. He really enjoyed himself. The staff was amazing from the Valet all the way to the busboy. I love this location. Our server wasn't as lively as one's that we had in the past, but his jokes made up for his tired demeanor. I'm sure he probably had a long work day. Keep up the good work. We will be back again for sure. The food was cooked to perfection as always, and my compliments to the chef on the delicious soft shell crab. YUMMY

It was my first time there to celebrate my daughters 6th birthday. Was a little worried she would not like it she is a picky eater, needless to say all the kids cleaned their plate. Everything was good, the staff was AMAZING. Can't wait to go again.

Food was bland no flavor and the service was average. Last few times we been to this location the food has not been good. Definitely not the same Benihana we use to frequent back in the day it has gone down hill.

We went to celebrate Easter and found it very crowded and noisy. The chef for our table was very quiet and didn’t do anything fun for the kids. No tricks or funny comments like we are used to. It was very disappointing, especially for the price of the meal.

There were three adults in our party. We were seated at a table with six other adults, plus two high chairs and a baby in a stroller. It was so cramped, there was no place to sit our drink glasses. After being seated and brought our drinks, we waited almost 45 minutes and no one came to take food orders. We never saw another server or chef. We left before ordering.

Good evening meal; we had to change our reservation time due to an unforeseen schedule conflict, but the hostess was friendly and able to accommodate us at the later time. Waitress was friendly and attentive, and the chef put on a great show.

Been here before and it was great. Great service great food great atmosphere. But this past time I went the service was fair to say the least. The menu changed for the holiday and was overcharged

This a a family or large group restaurant, not suitable for a romantic dinner nor for single traveler. Bar area is only option when dining alone. Good service from “Ben”.

Absolutely horrible, they never “checked us in” so we waited for almost an hour to be sat. Once sat we were put at a table with 9 people total. Clearly we didn’t fit. Even the manager said they are to sit 8

I went for dinner with 2 other friends. I recommend making a reservation or you will be waiting a long time. The wait on Friday is 2 hours usually. I also recommend taking at lease 6 people so you dont get stuck with another group that you dont know. Other than that we had a great time and the food was outstanding.

My family and I went for my daughter's 25th Birthday. It was awesome, we are such foodies, and we always try to find some of the best places to enjoy a dinner (as, we are never able to mesh our schedules).

Thank you for making it a great 1st experience.

restaurant was dirty, really dirty. Bathrooms were filthy. Hostess staff was indifferent. Red tea was out, chili paste was not available. Drinks were in constant need of refills. Show was lackluster at best. Food was good but not worth the drive or the price.

We had reservations at noon and sat at our table for an hour before a chef came. We were told 5 chefs had not shown up that day, but the table next to us was seated 30 minutes after we were and had finished 30 minutes before we did. We had 5 children and 3 adults in our party so we ordered as soon as we sat down in order to get in and out as quickly as possible. The entire lunch took over 2 hours which is inexcusable for lunch time. The rice was delicious, as usual, but the cut of my filet was very poor as there was a lot of fat in each bite.

This is my 2nd time going to this location. I’m not sure if they were understaffed but we sat our table almost an hour before getting our soup & salad. My reservation was for 7:45 & at 9pm the guy was just getting started on cooking our meals. Thank God the cook was awesome & brought a sense of humor with him. He definitely saved the night!
