Everything was perfect, from setting reservation, to service, and food. Wonderful experience.

They forgot to do the birthday chant and kept mistaken who's birthday it was. Didn't care for our table guests, they seemed uncomfortable when we got there, but that was out of our control. Server was awesome and food was delicious! Wish they had more options on the kid menu. Will be back.

I asked for extra rice and the cook forgot and I never got it. The pricing was a little higher then the habatchi in Conway and the cooks didn't put on a show like they do in Conway, Ar. Also when you go to Conway you get a lot more food at a lesser price. This place was good if your in Little Rock

The food was good and the service was good once we were seated. The only disappointment, was I had a reservation and still had to wait 45 minutes for my party to be seated.

While the food was very good, our cook did not put on a "show" as expected at our table. Another table behind us did. The noise level was too loud due to screaming kids and people talking way too loud for table conversation.

Food was very good, price for 12 was 500$. Way too much for hibachi. Four were kids menues and fried rice should come with it but it doesn’t and that was an extra 100$.

Benihana is always a great meal! Shapoor, the owner, always stops by the grill and says hello. Food was delicious, especially the steak, spicy chicken, scallops, fried rice, shrimp and calamari. Service was great. Always had a full glass and food on my plate. The cook was great and fun. It can get a little pricey but the food is so good and service is so great that I’ll continue to go there. Not to mention it has been visited by some very famous people including Michael Jackson, Trace Adkins, Bob Robbins, Bob Seger and several others!

I visited for a birthday and was disappointed because the server forgot to do a birthday surprise wish, we had to wait a while to get seating and food took a while to prepare. This Benihana wasn’t up to expectations as one I visited before in Long Island, NY

We’re seated promptly, but no activity for over 1/2 hour. Would have appreciated a drink while waiting for others to show up at the table.

Food was very good and chef amusing.

I had the chateaubriand and it was one of the best steaks I have had in years and cooked exactly how I wanted it. The fried rice was great as were the vegetables and shrimp. Service was polite and attentive. Highly recommend.

Showing up at 6 and no one in the lobby and not having a table for 2 and half hours was frustrating. Im glad you do the online reservation now, but there should be something for those without internet to be able to come and dine without the long wait or reservation.

The food and the chef were outstanding, the reservations we made was honored and we really had a great time. The waitress was not to good. She kept interrupting the cook by going between him and the table while he was trying to cook. She would constantly place her fingers in our salad and soup bowls when serving them, and reaching over our meal to pass a drink to someone at the table. But the atmosphere of Benihana is always great, I suggest the waitress be trained better in order to serve the customer better and not tarnish the good reputation of Benihana's

Horrible experience here. We had reservations at 8:30 and didn't get seated until 9:30. Took an hour after being seated before the chef even came out to start cooking. Worst dinner I've had in years. Fried rice was bland. Steak was undercooked. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

I used to come here several years ago and this was my first visit back. I feel as if the quality has degraded SIGNIFICANTLY in those years. The waiter did not seem professional or knowledgeable. He didn’t even turn on the grill for the chef. So the chef had to turn on the grill prolonging our visit significantly. Not only that, but the chef served what I would consider sub-par food. Also, I don’t know if the policy has changed since years past, but we were served a very small portion of rice as compared to other tables.
