    *2 hour dinner service with hardly any entertainment. We did not spend any time afterwards or before at the bar or anything. Strictly 2 hours from being seated to leaving after paying the bill. This was a dinner service on Tuesday February 27, 2024 at 7PM. The restaurant was busy but did not appear to be busy enough to warrant a substandard experience. *I did not get all the food I ordered (didn't get white rice with teppanyaki steak meal). *Received little attention from drinks waiter (refilled soda twice in 2 hours). My girlfriend had a cocktail & only had an opportunity to ask for a glass of water halfway through the service (may have had her water refilled once or twice). *First 5-10 minutes the teppanyaki chef attempted to be entertaining (no jokes but two onion volcanoes, a couple of utensil flips, smiley face of oil in the grill, & set alcohol on fire on the grill). From then on out, it was like a switch turned off. The chef made no attempt at being entertaining afterwards. Seriously, I get it. Anyone may have an off night but that was my experience. *The chef engaged in some banter with the lady sitting next to me...I don't think the banter was mutually friendly though. She expressed concern that she wasn't going to get her entire order/side sauces. The lady was direct but polite. The chef's responses were dismissive & he kind of laughed it off as if she was being unreasonable? Honestly I think she was being quite reasonable & I don't think she wanted to joke around either. Experiencing the chef interact with her was uncomfortable & embarrassing. *Loud environment & staff spoke softly. *Not a great value based on the lack of attention from waiters, quality of food, & atmosphere. The bill for my girlfriend & I came to $110 dollars before tips. She had a cocktail, vegetable roll, & tofu steak meal. I ordered a Diet Pepsi, one tuna roll, & the teppanyaki steak dinner (New York strip steak). Significantly more expensive than our local sushi restaurants.

    We had reservations for 7:00. When we got there we were told they were running “a little behind”. We ended up getting sat at 7:45. We didn’t have anyone attend to us until around 8:45/9. No apology, no explanation, nothing. The waitress and cook were wonderful but I still feel for a $250 meal for 3 people, we would have at gotten an apology. Benihana is a family favorite but I cannot see myself going back.

    We waited an hour after our reservation time before a chef came. Our server was two days in but was great. Our chef finally came and was pretty miserable. He didn’t talk to us at all and seemed like he didn’t want to be there. After wrapping up cooking, my brother asked about the mushrooms he didn’t cook for us as he was walking away. He proceeded to tell us they were all out of mushrooms even though there was a big bowl of mushrooms visible on his cart. They were out of just about every beverage except for Pepsi. No mixed drinks or milkshakes. Our meals were of premium cost just to receive poor service in return. We will be making the extra 30-40 minute trip north and passing by this one from now on.

    Our waitress had to be told three times for every request for drink orders. The portions were skimpy and the chef didn’t do that well either. Poor quality on the steak and scallops. This place has definitely embodied the shrinkflation phenomenon. I won’t be back.

    This is the third time in a row that this location has not had iced tea. Also was there 10 minutes early for my reservation and was made to wait until 15 minutes after my reservation before being seated, the restaurant was empty so it wasn’t like we’re waiting on an empty table. All the tables were empty, except one.. basically they were waiting to seat my party with a reservation that was 15 minutes after my reservation. Waitress never came back after cook was done to see if anyone needed anything, manager brought our bills and carryout containers which he did not bring enough and had to ask for more, waitress would have known how many people where at the table or I don’t know just count plates with food on them.

    Reservation was at 7:30, was sat down and was never told their computer system was down. Fast forward till 10 still no cook, had to go to the manager and ask what was going on. Manager tells us they can’t cook any food till the system comes back on and it would be at least another 2 hours before it was back up. Will never go there again since the management didn’t have the courtesy to let us know before hand.

    The computer outage was only a party of the problem. It took 20 minutes past our scheduled time to be seated. The restaurant was dirty on the inside, especially in the restrooms. The service -- what little we received -- was slow and un-attentive. If these points were not enough, it took the staff 45 minutes to communicate what action it would take in response to their computers being hacked. After nearly two-hours and 30 minutes, my party of 8 left the location very frustrated and mad as we were unable to eat as planned. What happened to having a backup plan?

    Not a very good experience. We were waited on quickly, got our drinks and order for food was taken. It took an hour before our cook showed up at our table and he complained that someone took all his things he needed off his cart. The waitress never brought rice bowls so he wasn’t able to start the rice. Everything was served backwards. He dropped several things as he was cooking. Took 3 hours for our meal. Will NEVER go back

    The restaurant was very dirty. There were a lot of dust clumps all over the restaurant, and no one visibly cleaning. The chef was ok, he seemed to be new and rushed. He forgot one of the kids hibachi dinners, he forgot to give out the sauces, and he did not provide any show or presentation, which was very disappointing to the kids we brought. The waitress acted rudely, very bothered, and un-attentive. She would ask one person if they needed anything and would run off before anyone else could respond. When she came back, it took about 10 minutes per soda/drink order for her to come back, she would clearly show she was inconvenienced and take longer to return. She would be gone for over 10 minutes each trip, the kids were upset and thirsty, and it came to the point I had to go up to the bar to request waters for the whole table, twice. Overall, this was one of the worst experiences at Benihana Dearborn. I have tried this location 3 times, and each time it has gotten worse. We have decided that we would not be returning to this location.

    I went to celebrate a belated Birthday with my complimentary Benihana coupon. I and my friend were running a few minutes behind my reservation time and I assume our window of allotted time. The manager was very gracious and understanding as my friend was walking into the building, yea ! We were seated and the customers we were paired with we had such a good time !! Antonio the chef was excellent !! He was engaging and funny, like I said everyone had the best time !! 💕💕

    After we were seated, It was at least a half hour before our drink order was taken. then another 15 minutes to get our drinks. We got no sauces until we asked for them. My daughter-in-law asked for fried rice with just butter, he put soy sauce on it. Will not go back to dearborn.

    If you plan on coming here plan on being here for2.5 to 3 hrs. The food and chefs are god but that’s about it. It’s very Smokey in here we left smelling like we cooked for 8 hrs. The waitress came over while we were eating asking if we needed anything. My mouth was full and I signaled trying to be polite and normal with a mouth full she said hurry up she’s on the go. I won’t be back here ever again.

    It took my waitress 20 minutes to come after being seated. Then another 30 mi to receive our water. I was there from 7:30 till 11:15.. then out of the 7 people at our table 5 of our order was wrong even after she repeated it back to us. The cook was great once he arrived. The Manger was great after we had tonask for him. Truly believe there should be way more cooks on staff.

    Be prepared to spend your entire night here. We were seated pretty quickly but then waited about two hours for the chef to arrive at our table. Our waitress only came by once to take our order and get drinks, so the drinks were empty with no food for quite a long time. Unfortunately the worst experience we’ve had here. I don’t think we’ll be going back any time soon.

    We waited 45 minutes after being sat for drinks and soup. Did not receive our salad, chef came out and started cooking still no salad nor did we see the waitress to ask for the salad. Drinks were empty. We asked for the sauces three times and did not receive them until the end of our meal with our salads in carry out containers. Myself and a few other at the table order the speciality meals and it should’ve came with ice cream and/or sherbet. This was never given to us. By the time we were leaving from our 6pm reservation it was 830. 2.5 hours later it was not worth the wait or the money spent. The experience was overall terrible the food was received was good but would’ve been better with the sauces.

    Our visit for the second time visiting this restaurant was horrible. Our first visit was on 12/25/2023. The food was delicious, the chef was awesome, but the server was a server from hell. Not only did we have her for the first time in December, but we were also unfortunate enough to have her for our server on Valentines Day. She was very abrupt with us while taking our order, and she did not inquire whether or not any of us had food allergies, she did not smile and had a very nasty attitude. My husband is allergic to certain food items. We were not aware that the tossed salad she brought us had onions in it until the chef overheard us having a discussion regarding onions. The chef informed us that the tossed salad did indeed have onions in it. The chef informed her about the onions when she came back to our table. It seemed to be of no concern to her. If my husband had eaten the salad with onions, it would have turned out to be a serious matter. I can't remember what her name is except that it started with a J. She was a tall skinny woman with fake eyelashes. If we could, we would come back for the food and especially the chef, but we won't be back because the chances of having her again as our server would be another disastrous dining experience for us.

    We were surprised the prices went up as much as they did. It seemed the portion sizes were smaller. Only chocolate ice cream was offered for dessert. Server said the others were not ready. This has also happened to us in the past. Was not expecting the dinner to be as expensive as it was.

    We waited two hours until the chef began cooking. Our reservation was at 8 and the hibachi didn’t begin until 10:15.

    Left after 30 mins; never greeted by server, never got to place a drink order. Awful experience.

    1st and formal my husbands b-day; seating was filthy, table not wiped, carpet floor is beyond discusting. Coming in you will not spend $30 or like i was told. Instead it was over $100 each couple. I ordered a specific drink waiter brought me a different one. I mentioned it gave it back. 2nd try i showed the image, of what i want and waiter brings me the wrong drink. Last but not least i introduced myself to the manager; and he said he would take care of it? Nothing was done well in that matter, so I drank water the time there. 9 people on my table; and the wait was more than hr for the waiter to ask what we’d like to drink. I suggest CLEAN THE ENTRANCE, wipe down the whole restaurant and make sure things get properly done. The wine rack is dusty and nasty looking . no motivation to even purchase a wine bottle for my 9 group. I am beyond disappointed.
