Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. A visit to Benihana Dallas is like stepping into a Japanese country farmhouse among the bustle of the city. The restaurant is surrounded by a koi-filled lake. Guests cross a wooden bridge to the entrance and once inside, they are met with cordial greetings from the hosts. The restaurant consists of several smaller rooms which afford a sense of privacy; larger groups can opt for the four-table rooms located on either wing.

    We were disappointed in our experience at this location. When we checked in, the host explained that the AC was not working properly in some of the rooms and there would be a 20 minute wait. We should have been notified before our reservation time, but we decided to stay since the kids were excited to be there. We were initially seated in a back room, which also appeared to be the warmest room in the restaurant. We had two kids in our party, so we asked if we could wait for a cooler room to become available so the kids could be comfortable. The team accommodated us, and we were grateful. The food tasted good and the portions were more than enough for the price, but unfortunately the service was terrible. Benihana used to run like a well oiled machine, but it was absolute chaos that night. Our server seemed overwhelmed and tired, but she was trying hard. It took at least 15 minutes to get drinks to the table. We couldn’t even get some water while we waited. And when she did show up, she only showed up with half of the table’s drinks. As hot as it was in the building, the water should have been readily available to all of the guests that night. Our chef must have been new because he did not have any of the flair that the other chefs at surrounding tables had. He was focused on getting the food in front of us, and while I appreciated that, we wanted the kids to get a little bit of a show too after sitting for so long. He cracked a joke about egg rolls when he started, and that was all we got. The manager never came over to any of the tables to offer an apology or to acknowledge the inconvenience, and I think that was a missed opportunity and poor showing of customer service. I’ve had way better experiences at Benihana in the past and this one was really disappointing. I’m hoping this was just an off night for their team.

    New chef hardly knew how to serve. Food was mediocre. Sorry, there are too many hibachi grills out there to waste time and money on Benihana's again. OpenTable piled on by sending me both confirmation and denial via email, regarding my reservation and disputed attendance. The emails arrived two hours apart. When I assured OT I had attended the reservation I made, the response I got was all about ensuring the restaurant reporting was correct. NOTHING about OT's culpability in admonishing me and threatening me with "no show" penalties. Where's the button that asks if I'd recommend OpenTable to a friend? Put me down as a "No."

    We had a "new" table chef named Robert who apparently had never been to a hibachi restaurant before. He dropped the sharp knife on the cook-top while twirling it (dangerous for everyone). He only made fried rice for the half of table who ordered the up charge chicken fried rice. My wife did not receive any of the free veggie fried rice or zucchini & onions that we normally get. I had to share mine and felt sorry for others at the table who didn't pay for the up charge fried rice. All they received was their meat order. He also failed to do any of the fire fun for the kids. Next time, I will walk out if the chef appears inexperienced. Entertainment AND good food are expected.

    Asked for medium rare steak, it was inedible and completely raw. Vegetables and rice were heavily over salted and over peppered. Chef forgot everything, it was definitely his first time or brand new to hibachi. Fried rice was burned from him burning the griddle.

    It was a great experience, however, im not sure what was going on with their ventilation as when the food was being cooked, the people sitting on the left of the chef were completely engulfed in the smoke and their eyes were red and watering. That spoiled the experience for us but otherwise it was good.

    It was dirty. We felt rushed. Our waiter was amazing though. The chef was ok. We have been to a few other Japanese Steakhouses where the food was WAY better. They lacked flavor. Sauces were not good. Overpriced as well.

    The overall experience was OK. Nothing too special. My biggest concern is with the service the chef provided. He seemed disconnected and did not provide the Benihana experience I am used to. He was very quiet and barely talked. Seemed like it was a waste of his time and just didn’t seem like he was enjoying cooking for us. Our server was amazing though! She was very nice and attentive and I enjoyed her service.

    Air conditioning was out in a portion of the restaurant. Zero notification was given that there could be a delay. We arrived on time and waited for 45 minutes to be seated. We were not told of the issue until we were taken to a table and seated. Not really an acceptable experience in the middle of a heatwave, in Texas, at a place that cooks right in front of you.

    I received a courtesy call from the restaurant 2 hours prior to arriving notifying us their A/C system was being worked on which I appreciated. On arrival, the restaurant was busy and it was quite warm, but they had a fan and ice waters for anyone waiting. When my party and I were seated, it took about 20-30 minutes for us to start getting food (I believe the restaurant was also working with a shortage of staff). Alberto was our chef who took great care of our table and was very entertaining. Overall, my party and I had a great experience despite the waiting and A/C issues. Food was incredible and seasoned well. Will definitely go back (hopefully the A/C will be fully functional then).

    Unfortunately the air conditioning in the lobby seemed to be not working, but they were passing out ice water which was thoughtful. However, we had a reservation and they are currently only doing reservations - no walk-ins. Yet when we arrived we were told they were “running behind” and it would be 30-45 minutes. It was not that long, but still very unfortunate for reservation only.

    Omg! No A/C working in half the restaurant on a 102 day in Dallas & we’re seated in windows on west side. Everyone was dripping with sweat. Waitress took 15 minutes to take drink order. Post Covid with no A/C I’m sure reduced staff!! The ice melted by the time she brought the “not”iced tea. Chef had a very heavy accent from The Congo, couldn’t understand him. $300.00 later. Management should have notified reservations & closed facility until A/C was repaired. At least a free drink for my group of 3 adults & 2 children! Dress code is posted on reservation website but not enforced, cover your kids eyes! We have always enjoyed Benihana through the years. Worst Expensive dining experience ever!
