Great service. One result of COVID is smaller groups at tables. Wait staff was friendly and took good care of us.

The service and the food we’re both good. The Teppanyaki table was boring. I remember when it used to be fun. The chef didn’t say two words the whole night. The carpet was dirty, ripped and beat up. I’ve gone to other Benihana’s and had a fun experience the one at Dulles just seems rundown, not much atmosphere at the Teppanyaki table.

We have been to this same restaurant several times in the past and this last visit just didn't measure up to past expectations. The two of us were alone at the table which changed the dynamics greatly. The chicken was dry and chewy. The steak and shrimp were much better. The $4 surcharge per person for brown rice (without the chicken) is expensive...especially since it is a few vegetables and an egg and requires very little prep. Hope for better experience next visit.

Terrible service - took orders multiple times and got it all wrong. Chef dropped many items and even splattered an egg everywhere on the food cart. No service during meal - kept requesting food and drinks - never appeared. The place had two other parties so mostly a ghost town and they could not even handle this small party.

We had high expectations going into the restaurants because of the reviews from others . The food was good but for the amount of money you spend it’s truly not worth it. The food portions are so slim it’s crazy to even charge 35-42 food a meal.

Excellent food. We had a bit of a wait even with a reservation. However they where kind enough to sit us at the lounge while we wait and take our orders for drinks and appetizers.

The manager was horrible. She said we couldn’t be seated at our reserved time and continued to argue with me while I’m pregnant and my kids were starving. All we wanted was a good birthday experience for my child and it turned out to be horrible. Never going again.

The experience was great as always. Even with covid slowing things down, the food was still as great as ever. My wife, three kids and I had a great evening here. We have been very careful since this past March when covid arrived here. This night out to dinner was our very first time eating or ordering out since then and it was for my wife’s birthday dinner. A great choice for our very First venture out to eat since covid.

Felt that server did not understand fully what we ordered and caused little confusion. Chef was not fully prepared for our food and had to have people come back and forth retiriving items for her and forgot some part of the cooking entertainment process. Food was saltier than usual. We just didn't enjoy our dining experience this time as last visit was way better. We really enjoy the staff and food last visit several weeks back. It was disappointing that we did not get the same quality service.

This place is nice, cute for date night. I enjoyed the space from other people, I also enjoyed the show the chef did. I do think its too expensive for the amount of food that you receive.

Food was delicious and they were very accommodating with a gluten allergy in our party. The “show” was a bit lacking in enthusiasm but again food was delicious!!!

Went with the family for my mom’s birthday and couldnt have picked a better spot! Our chef Marvin provided excellent customer service along with the performance and was bilingual - brownie points with my hispanic family. Wait time was minimal, only noise was really just from chefs and their routine which is to be expected since thats the whole point. Staff was super friendly and made us feel comfortable in these strange covid times

Service was wonderful, everyone was so friendly and accommodating. Social distancing in place! The food quality was not what we’ve had in the past. It seemed to be less than stellar especially considering the price which also seemed higher!
