Benihana - Las Colinas Ratings and Reviews
We have four different birthdays that we celebrate at Benihana. They usually make a photo to commemorate the occasion; however, this was the second time in two months that no photo was taken even though we asked the server about it. After we had paid our check, he was no longer interested in our table. We waited 15 minutes and could not get his attention, so we left without the photo.
My wife and I celebrated her birthday and it turned out to be a very special evening at Benihana Las Colinas. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive throughout our evening and our chef was one of the best that we have had there. We have made Benihana a birthday tradition for more than 10 years and this time was one the best experiences of all. Our food was delicious and cooked just as we wanted. Our chef was very personable and an absolute joy to watch as he went through his routine at the grill. Thanks Benihana for such a wonderful evening and making my wife's birthday a truly special event.
Probably the best experience I've had at Benihana. Our chef was very entertaining and had everyone at our table laughing, and the age range was from about 4 to my Dad's 94. The food was, as always, very good (I had Steak and Scallops and my Dad had Scallops, and there were several special requests from others at the table. Our chef had no problem accommodating everyone). My only issue is the level of noise of music in the dining area that is anything but Japanese - although that can be heard in the entry/waiting and bar areas.
This was my first time using Open Table, even having to change the time on my reservation, and the process was seamless.
Very disappointing - my first and probably last trip to a Benihana's....I guess my expectations were high, but they dropped as soon as we walked in and were not greeted by the hostess leaning against the podium so looked like she could care less whether we ate there or not.
Despite a reservation, we were made to wait - which was frustrating when we saw empty tables. As it was late perhaps they were closing off sections - which is understandable - but the hostess made no attempt to explain why we had to wait.
Once seated we had to ask for napkins and silverware...none provided. Fortunately two of the guests at our table were regulars so they at least knew where to find some napkins... then after several minutes had gone by the waitress appeared within some...just bad service overall.
Overall the restaurant appeared run down - bathrooms were extremely dirty (doesn't appear anyone checked on them at all during the course of the night)....so makes one wonder what the kitchen looks like.
The only redeeming quality was the food cooked by Hector - who did a fantastic job preparing an extremely tasty meal and accommodated everyone's special request, whether it was extra garlic butter...or no butter at all.
Overall, good experience. We have visited this restaurant several times. Unfortunately, after ordering our food we had to wait over thirty minutes for the chef to begin preparing our meal. This long wait, which was unusual, was difficult for our three young children (4, 3, and 1 years old).
This was my first time at Benihanas after so many people recommended this place to me. VERY delicious food! Traditional hibachi only packed with much more flavor. Wonderful 6 course meal, AMAZING mojitos, and if you are a lobster fan do not skip out on it!
My first time not doing the hibachi with the chef. We ordered at the bar and enjoyed Happy Hour and dinner. It was more time efficient because of another activity later in that evening. Loved all food coming out at one time. The bartender was very attentive. I always enjoy dining there.
I’ve been to many Benihanas around the US and this one was nice inside out but the vibes were really low. Manager seemed incompetent, server was very inattentive. The only one that made it a pleasant experience was the chef, her name was Ingry. If you are going because of your birthday or you just want to have ask for her, she’s the best.
We had a great experience with Miguel as our chef. The food was great and Miguel had a lot of fun while cooking for us. He was very friendly and helped make our dinner even better. Half of the experience is having a great chef! We go every year for our family birthdays, since there are so many in September. Benihana never disappoints and this year was no different!
This is my absolute favorite restaurant but I had never been to the Las Colinas one! My meal was wonderful but something to do with the air conditioning and the vents being too high the smoke from the food was literally in my face the entire dinner... im aware being a loyal customer of 20 plus years some smoke is normal
But this was the entire time! And I have never had that problem at the Dallas location
It was my fiancé birthday. They never sand happy birthday. The cook was messy food was everywhere. He didn't seem like he wanted to be there. Our service was horrible it took 35 minutes for us to get our drinks after the rest of the table got there's and the server put my fiancé salad next to another lady so she didn't know she had one. We've been to Benihana several times and this is the worst experience we've ever had. We are never going to this location again.
wonderful b day experience. Make reservations...timely seating...great ambience..on noisy side....many choices..Accurate order..Beautiful ..fun presentation with chef entertaining table with skilled utensil tricks...well organized
Always a treat to eat at Benihana's in Los Colinas. Our family lives in several different cites throughout the greater metroplex area and celebrate almost every birthday there! It's a wonderful evening out with the family and the cooks at each table are fun to watch!!!!
Disappointing - have not been to a Benihana in more than 30+ years --- apparently the chain has decided to stop using only Japanese chefs; ours was Latina and talented but it just was not the same.
There seemed to be no point in making a reservation. The place was half empty and it still took almost 10 minutes to get seated.
And this restaurant is very noisy - lots of birthday celebrations; the kind of place you might bring kids to celebrate a birthday (which was the last time I came to one, and why I won't come back to one any time soon)
The set-up is very inviting and fun for a group outing, lunch or dinner. The atmosphere helped relax everyone into having a good time and the entertainment by the Chef created a nice conversation piece and fun pictures. Well worth the price when you consider the value in everything you experience while here. The food was obviously warm (it's made in front of you)and seasoned perfectly. Highly recommend the scallops and shrimp. The lemon flavor is impressive.
