I’m always shown a great time in Benihana-NLR. Although, they may not know me by name, the servers & hosts definitely know my face. My food is always great & I always enjoy myself.

Paid $700 for 10 of us to eat. For that price, you would think we would be provided, at least, some attention by our waitress. After asking for our drinks several times, we just settled for our glasses of water (with no ice). Half of us got our soups after about 20 minutes. 20 minutes later the waitress brought out the rest of the soups, and two salads. It wasn’t until our hibachi meal was half served that we finally got the other 8 salads, although not for lack of asking multiple times. When the chef came out to cook for us, he repeated our orders to us (luckily), but most of what we had orders had been written down incorrectly by the waitress. Food itself was fantastic, but I was embarrassed of the lackluster attention we received, especially since I was the one who suggested the restaurant for our groups night out. Next time, we will pick somewhere across the river in Little Rock.

Food and ambience was great, I highly recommend it, and if you can make a reservation do it, otherwise you will be waiting for an hour, especially on weekends, I learn that long time ago!

We have always loved Benihana. The food is excellent!! It is by far my favorite hibachi. However, the last 2 times we have had to wait a long time for our chef. This last time we had to wait at our table for an HOUR for our chef! We have two small children so it was even more difficult. The staff is super nice but I think waiting that long is unacceptable.

We are locals and love coming here, but this trip was a bit disappointing. It was uncomfortably hot in the hibachi part of the restaurant. Also, the vegetables weren’t cooked through and the (almost) raw veggies were unappetizing. Will we be back? Yes! If it’s sub-par again, though, we may need to find a new Japanese restaurant.

The filet was so tender I could tear it apart with my fingers. Long was our cook and he was so great and made sure not to do anything that would scare our 1 year old. Our server was also wonderful and attentive. The only thing we had an issue with was how smoky it was in the dining room. Walking in to the room you could see how smoky it was but it wasn’t bad at first, but definitely started to bother all of our eyes and our clothes kept that smell until I could wash them the next day. But the food, as always, was impeccable!

We had a 6:30 reservation, all party arrived at 6:40, others were waiting on table. We alerted them party had arrived. A group of about 10 came in an within 5 minutes too them in. I asked them, they said they had a 6:30 p.m. appointment but arrived at 6:55 p.m. We were seated at 7:00 p.m. and still did not have a chef until 7:55 p.m. They totally disrespected and lied as to why we had no chef. They tend to favor others that don't look like us. This was the 3rd try.

I worked here after high school. Fast forward.. It's a great place for lunch considering you get the same exact dining opts as twice the price dinner so long as you don't mind sitting close to total strangers. The service ppl were fair attentive. If you have a bday email the management doesn't know that technology is paperless these days and would not value there own coupon with the barcodes So advice is to print out before you visit. Still was a nice experience after all these years.could use a facelift or updating... Every thing is exactly THE SAME.oan unless it's winter DO not over dress the grill is well grilling... Still give two thumbs up plus 4 1/2stars

Food was great as usual. We kept having to look for our waitress since she was not checking on our table. Several people’s drinks were empty and she was no where to be found more than once. Every time we go there is an issue with dividing up our bill. And it was an issue this time as always. Our chef was noticeably distracted and kept looking around the room. We overheard him trying to talk to a waitress who told him she was not talking about that now.

One of the best restaurants to eat in NLR. They have a great setup but need to modernize.
