Benihana - Beaverton Ratings and Reviews

We wanted somewhere special to eat which is why we choose Benihana. Our grown children had never been and it would be our last all together family dinner for a few years. Our server was great but didn't offer us ice cream which was offered in the menu with our meals, we could have asked for it but still it should have been offered regardless. The food was almost perfect. It was a little salty compared to what I normally consume but I still enjoyed it tremendously. Lastly, this was not our first time but some of our guests had never been here before and they would have liked their first time picture as a souvenir. The server didn't acknowledge them at all. Which to them was kinda disappointing. I'm sure we will be back again.

We went there last week and had a poor experience. We gave it another try this week because we thought it might have just been the chef. Unfortunately, we got the same chef this week too! The experience was equally bad. I can't say I'm interested in going again.

Our "chef" must've been new. He was very sloppy and messy and mixed up orders and didn't do much of the table show that you come to expect from Hibachi restaurants. The chef at one table over engaged our table more than ours did.

I have been going to Benihana's for years, but this was my first time going to the one in Beaverton - It was disappointing! My husband and son had never been before and we were celebrating my husbands work promotion. The woman who took our order was wonderful, but the chef was disappointing. He was not as enthusiastic as others, was slow and only preformed only two tricks. We might go back just to see if it was a fluke. I've always enjoyed their food.

Our only complaint would be, it takes the server quite awhile to bring our check, to pick -up our check and bring back our check so we could leave.
Maynor, our chef at the Beaverton, Oregon location was fantastic!!! He showed us tricks we've never seen before. He was very entertaining. We really enjoyed the show and he was funny!!

Food was great as always. It's always hit or miss if you get a great chef or not. We did not this time. And our waiter had other things on his mind. He never offered us hot tea and forgot our included ice creams desserts. I did notice another waitress that was happy and offering up great service at another table. And the chef across from us seemed more energetic. But we would come back for the food and the kids enjoy the cooking table.

Great food, great fun, easy to interact during dinner. 2 year old in our group was entertained enough to sit through a dinner and he ate alot because he loved the food. Our chef gave him special attention through out the presentation of the meal.

Benihana is a great place to celebrate your birthday and/or other special events with loved ones. The restaurant offers very good service/food with ongoing entertainment by the chefs and other staff. If you are celebrating your birthday, you can avail the $30 birthday discount by signing up on their Chef table system.

We booked a full table to celebrate my son's 9th birthday. 2 adults and 6 kids and it was FANTASTIC. The kids were super engaged in the show and the server and chef were proactive in anticipating any "kid" issues, such as bringing the soup with the onions, mushrooms, etc. on the side and taking the ice cream order before too much time passed. It was smiles all around. Great food. Smooth from start to finish.

The food is always good but a bit expensive for the quality. You are paying extra for the show, so I'm not complaining. Just know what you're in for when eating here. Due to the nature of the show and the roaring vent fans, it can be quite noisy. Also just something to be aware of. Lots of families and young groups meeting for special occasions. A lot of people clearly treat it as a special event and dress up a bit, but t-shirts and shorts are common as well. I would say dress a little nicer than usual for Portland so you don't feel out of place, and you may even end up sitting with well dressed people at your table. The place is always packed for dinner so do make reservations.

I'm tired of Benihana malfunctioning with the Open Table system. I didn't get my dining points yet again, because when I tried to make a rez with Open Table I was told the Benihana system was "offline"

This place always has a foreign high class feel, not stuffy but elegant and relaxing. Our server was an absolute delight! He was friendly and always ready to help. Our chef was a bit late and while she did put on a show, I felt it paled in comparison to my previous experience. My husband had the Salmon with avocado tartar sauce and I had the Tuna Steak, both were excellent! I was hoping for a bit more food for the cost I think and a bit more flavor in my dish but I may have raised me exceptions since the last time I was there and was blown away by both the flavors and chef's skill for entertainment! It may be a couple things were just a tad off that evening. Overall I would do it again and recommend my friends to come along!

I enjoy the ambiance of this restaurant, but the main reason we go here is for the entertainment. The food is good, but always leaves a charred soy after taste in my mouth that lingers for hours. But, I do not go here for the food, every other restaurant serves pretty much the same offerings, in fact other restaurants taste better. We go here for the entertainment, something different than the other restaurants, and we had one of the best entertainers this time, we laughed and enjoyed his skills with the cooking utensils, jokes and magic tricks. The kids loved it. I won't go back to eat the food, but I will go back to enjoy the show.

Service and chief were excellent but food wasnt as good as usual just a little off on seasoning. I have had better in my past visits. Really disappointed in green tea ice cream not tasty or creamy at all. Whoever is now making you ice cre find someone new. I've been eating at your restaurant starting in Calif many years ago and now it's just way over priced. Time to change up vegs been serving same thing for years.

We were made to wait for the rest of our party, even with a reservation - rather annoying. Food was excellent, service person was excellent, but it all seemed hurried and felt like there was no time to linger over coffee.

We have visiting your restaurants for over 30 years and have NEVER been disappointed anywhere in the country. Very very consistent at top level. I have brought family and friends as well as business associates and their families and knew it would be a wonderful experience for all , children and adults.

We had a reservation for 6:00 pm and were not seated till 7:00 pm. It was 8:00 pm by the time we actually got soup and salad, by this time we were starving! It's worse every time we go here. Luckily the food was good, but we won't be celebrating events here very often.

Another great meal from Benihana! Chef Cicero was really good- he cooked great food and was very professional. It must have been a particularly busy Sunday or there were not enough servers. They are usually on top of clearing as soon as you're done and you don't have to wait for water for too long but on this particular visit, service was slow.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The food was very great and the chef was fun to watch, very talented!!! The restaurant was packed and the patrons were all having fun. I definitely will return!!!
Love your reservation app.!!!! Thank you for providing a great service.

We took our grown son out for his birthday and took his grandparents with us. His grandparents are in their late 80's and usually light eaters, but nearly licked their plates clean. They did run out of brown rice, and were not offered the option of fried rice because the food cart had already been prepared without enough fried rice ingredients. The only real flaw in the evening, was being left with white steamed rice, really our third choice.
