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.

I came here with my boyfriend to celebrate our birthdays (I used the 30$ coupon). It was a pretty typical night at Benihana but our server seemed a little everywhere and he kept forgetting stuff. But other than that the food, as always, was amazing.

The wait for people with reservations was 45 min to an hour and a half. When we finally got a table, looking at the chef at the next table... he was filthy. Watching him dig in his dirty pocket for a lighter was almost more than we could take. The floor at his feet was littered with all the food that he had splashed on the floor as he attempted to wow his customers. I am happy to say that our chef was considerably better. Service was not very good. With certain items coming at the end of the meal.
It’s been a while since I’ve been here, where I was once a regular... unsure when I will return again.

Double check your bill before lying. We were overcharged at the bar prior to being seated as well as at the table. Menu says add on lobster was 15$, but we were charged over 20$ for it.


They made it right afterwards, but I still advise looking over the bill closely prior to paying.

Very nice place and went for a meeting. Got a table emptied and alone just for 3 people including myself. The food and place was amazing but I couldn’t stop being watched over the shoulder by the server. She just stands and stares at the table as if looking for someone to mess up. Other than that, the food was good. It just didn’t feel that friendly of an area especially if my clients noticed the server just looking in our direction the whole hour.

Reservation was meaningless to the restaurant. I still had to wait 30 mins to get seated which was the same wait time had I not had a reservation. I overheard this was they didn’t have enough staff to serve us.

Benihana has redeemed our confidence in their performance. Food and service were excellent! Our prior dining experience was not up to par, but this dinner exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Benihana!
