There are so many options for hibachi that are much cheaper, cleaner and higher quality than Benihana. Our chef was just ok and the food quality wasn't great, especially for the price. I thought the staff was kind of disengaged and the restaurant didn't seem that clean. Overall, I just wasn't that impressed.

Everything was amazing form the food to the server. The only drawback was that the chef was boring. No show or anything. The chef next to us was real engaging. We wish we could request a chef. Had a great time altogether.

I chose to dine at Benihana's - Dallas for a special occasion. The 1st issue was while taking the tomatoes out of my child's salad I found a black hair. I got the waiter and they apologized and brought out a new salad. I go to stir up the dressing in my own salad and found another black hair in my salad. Whoever was responsible for making up the salads was obviously not wearing a hair net. If I had not paid attention both me & my child would have ingested someone else's hair. Of course the manager was super nice about the situation and comped half of my meal. Going through this experience I'm sure I won't return to this location.

We celebrated our 1st anniversary at Benihana. Food was great, cozy atmosphere, didn't have to wait long to be seated. The online reservation system worked well. I usually think of hibachi as more of an adult restaurant, and there were kids there, but it wasn't disruptive and we had a good overall experience.

The lunch menu is very inexpensive & the service is outstanding. The food is delicious & it helps that you get to watch your food being prepared in front of you. I would recommend this spot to anyone who wants to enjoy a fun-filled entertaining lunch or dinner. Two thumbs up!

Worst experience ever. Made reservations for 7:30 p.m wasn't seated until 8:15 p.m. Hostess lack customer service skills (a dying art). Once we were seated, we were left alone for another 15 minutes. One of patorns pitched a fit to the manager . Who intern gave her the golden treatment the rest of the night. While the other 6 customers were over looked the entire night . To make matters worse, we over heard the server tell the "special couple " that the manager had some thing special for them. We waited but the manager didn't show up while we were there . We talked to manager on the way out (not a good convo). Thoroughly disappointed. Enjoyed my wife! Rest assure, it will never happen again nor will I recommend to anyone I know. THE END

That was the worst experience we've ever had in such an expensive place. They sat family of five on our table and the father was worse than kids when it came to not shutting up. Our food was cold and not the portions we paid for. It tasted yucky. Never will we even consider this lousy place again

Went to meet our son's girlfriend. Perfect place. You can carry on a conversation, you can also be cozy and romantic. Perfect for any occasion or no occasion. Always entertaining and delicious!! Great for the whole family!

A very fun place for families and special occasions. We were there for a birthday and everyone enjoyed the evening. The chefs are entertaining, especially for kids. Most importantly, the food is great and suitable for most dietary needs. Valet parking is available which is a nice addition.

After having many positive experiences at this location and the Plano location, my wife and I decided to come here for our first anniversary. We got dressed up, excited to have a fun evening, and drove to the Dallas location. I told the hostess that it was our first anniversary, and they said congrats and asked us to seat until our table was ready. We got seated a few minutes later at a table with a couple and their child, and another couple that I’ll refer to again in a few that came “thugged out” for lack of a better term. We got seated and handed a menu and we waited… and waited… and waited… and waited…
After twenty minutes one person finally stopped in the hall, stuck her head in and said, "Be right with you" yet she kept going past us as did multiple other employees. Not once did someone stop to ask us if someone had helped us yet, if we needed anything, or anything else you’d imagine a restaurant would do for a patron. At this point we weren’t very happy and I said if we didn’t get service within 5 minutes we’d leave as it’d been 30 minutes at that point.
Now… Remember the couple I said I’d refer back to? They were using foul language the entire time and even after the other couple asked for them to stop they did not, and within my 5 minute wait period they got a call and started working out a drug deal. It was at that point I got up and left as we’d had more than enough.
What's funny is the staff thanked us for coming and hope we enjoyed their meal as we were walking out, oblivious to the fact that I'd only told them roughly 30 minutes earlier that we were there for our anniversary and we were dressed up unlike most of the people we’d seen dining.
By the time we battled traffic to go to another restaurant and eat, the place where my wife had been looking forward to having dessert all week at closed which added another damper to the evening.
Needless to say, this wasn't the anniversary dinner my wife and I had expected especially our first one.

Large back room we were in was very humid and not very cool, not very comfortable in general. Service was slow getting started, but once things got going, food and service was good. Didn't hear or get the happy birthday song for the first time in several visits and there were two birthday people at our table.

Food was really good. Waitress we had was not happy to be there. We had to ask for many items that were supposed to come with our dinners. All the other tables around us had much better service. We still had a good time.

Went back after a few years. The meat quality was lower, the options not too friendly, the portions were reduced, with the prices higher. The waiter tried his best to make up for deficiencies, but they were too many. Don't think we will go back there again, at least for quite a few years.
