Celebrating a birthday dinner. Drinks and dinner were great. I think the chef was new but he did a great job. It was very entertaining & quick service.

Although the food was good, the service was AWFUL! It took over 30 minutes to get a drink and in between courses our plates were never cleared. Awful dining experience.

We eat at Benihana’s every April for a special occasion (last 12 years.). The restaurant was great but we were slightly disappointed that they didn’t cut up all the veggies as they have in the past. The squash and onions were precut instead of cutting them up on the grill as in the past. Also, we were not offered the green tea at the end of the meal even though it was included as part of the meal. Overall, great experience—these were small things we noticed.

The food was made to order and was what I expected with a great menu with many options. Our server was prompt, friendly, and made our dining experience superb. She helped my 9 year old who did not want to order off the kid's menu. Our chef entertained with his special skills. My husband's filet minion was cooked perfectly. The sushi came at just the right time. This dining experience was everything we expected

The food was good and the chef cooking for us was nice as well but the service sucked. We had a reservation which we were on time for but we had to wait for another party to be able to be seated with us because our group wasn’t big enough. It’s way over priced for the service, I’d rather go to Panda Express and their food is disgusting.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and the food is always amazing. We enjoy the liveliness of the restaurant and the chefs are always entertaining. We love it and will always eat here while in the Dallas /Plano area.

As always, the food was delicious! Our chef, Oh, was funny and fun. He made the experience even better than we expected. The wait was longer than we had hoped despite the fact that we had a reservation.

Always a fun place to go for a celebration. Food and service is consistent and fresh, cooked right in front of you. Less than impressed with the bar staff. Not friendly the night we were there and service was slow and it was difficult to get a beverage.

Took my daughter for her birthday dinner and service was terrible. We had to wait even though we had reservations. They took forever to get the cook to our table. Cook gave her rice to another customer at the table. And they sang happy birthday to several other customers but not to her!

Hit and miss. If we have an experienced chief, then food taste much better than a rookie one. We comes very often and last visit was a bad experience for us. We did not have a chance to convey the negative experience with management in charge.

Had a reservation, checked in with the host when we arrived, sat at the bar for a drink, and after waiting for a long time went to check on our table. Was told they sat someone with our reservation and would sit us next. Two more parties were sat and went back to the manager, then he gave us a table.

If you give away someone’s reservation and tell them you will sit them next, don’t sit other people ahead of them.

It was my wife’s birthday and she want to go to Benihana’s. We always order the Benihana Delight. Her chicken was very rubbery and was not able to eat it. The cook did cook another one but the feeling was gone. I was not pleased in the experience of the cook.

Food is good but extremely pricy. They upcharge a whole side of fried rice if you would rather have that then steamed. Doesn’t seem right since you are already getting steamed rice. I understand the upcharge but not for a whole side of fried rice.

Benihana offered a fun evening for my family and friends. We enjoyed the food, the chefs antics, and our overall experience. We will be back again in the summer. One downside is being seated with families we don’t know.
