Birthday celebration with my wife. Unusually long wait for a table given that we had a reservation and restaurant was not remotely crowded. However, this was one of the few establishments in the DC area with indoor dining so it would have been ridiculous to complain. Food was excellent!

This used to be a decent place to celebrate. The food is not as good-lobsters were tiny, the meat was tiny and looked right out of the freezer. Too bad b/c my kids used to love it

I’ve been to a few Benihana’s and the food is always amazing. So thats the reason I always come back, but I made reservations and I was sat at my reserved time, and once I sat down the cook seemed very tired. She was very sweet but tired and our server seemed to be very busy as well. The server was nice when she had time to check on us, but I feel as if Benihana was not prepared to accommodate all of the reservations they had that evening. I will be back but I will reserve at an earlier time.

Food seemed over priced and our chef was obnoxiously loud. It was hard to enjoy the experience with the loud constant banging of his metal spatula on the metal table

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.

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.
