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.

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.

The service was awful. I had been here several times before but this was the worst service that I had ever received. I kept having to ask for things over and over again before I recieved what I needed. This was also a birthday celebration for me and I had at ask for my picture to be taken, which that was something that was automatically done after they song Happy Birthday. I was very disappointed.

We waited over wayyyyyy to long to be fed. Ended up being the last people to leave the back area of the restaurant. Service was super poor. The manager gave the couple at the table with us their meal free and only provided my table of 4 a small discount. This was my birthday dinner with my family. How embarrassing.

I feel like the restaurant is seriously understaffed. The waitresses have way too many responsibilities, so she would often forget my water, or it would take her forever to get me a to-go box. It took 2 hours for the chef to come to our table to cook the food. They offered some free appetizers because they feel bad that we were waiting too long, but it was already after we ordered all the appetizers( we were going way too hungry). So it was no need. There were 4 tables in the room. Our food was cooked after all the other table was done eating. This happened every time I went to this place for a birthday. The food is not bad, the chefs are funny and the staff is cordial. However, the overall experience was tiring and long.

Though I had a reservation, we (and everyone in the lobby who had a reservation for the same time) were seated almost an hour late. We were in a back room--the clientele included a family in shorts and undershirts who were gigantic, loudly profane, and covered with tatoos. Another table was filled with rowdy children throwing food on the floor. Our chef was flurried and inept and the food only fair (but quite expensive). Drinks were small and not well mixed. Altogether, a very disappointing experience. We won't be back.

Benihanna's has been a favorite place for my daughter to pick for her birthday dinner for many years! This year she turned 13 & asked to bring some friends for this year's birthday dinner. The 3 friends she invited had not been before so it was really fun! The food was delicious & she enjoyed the staff singing Happy Birthday to her at the end!!

It was my birthday and we had 8:30 reservation. Our dinner was rushed our cook didn't come to the table until about 9:20 and then our my order was wrong so he had to get my food corrected and then it got so late that I had to ask for the birthday ice cream everyone had left so only I told them no one sung happy birthday to me so two people came and sung and I asked for a birthday picture but everyone was gone so she hurry up and took one and it cut all our bodies off and they didn't have any benihanna's frame so my birthday was RUSHED. I think that the last reservation for the night should get the same treatment as the first guest of the night.

I've eaten here 100s of times. This was one of my worst visits ever. We were celebrating Mom's 70th.. The service and was good. The food was not. It was later in the evening. Maybe the chef was tired. The fried rice was not cooked enough. There was a lot of white chunks in the rice. The chicken was kind of doughy like. The grilled onions were still somewhat raw. Everything else was good. It seemed as though this was a rush job. It was a Thurs night, somewhat packed. Reservation was at 730. Seated a little past 8. Received soup about 17 minutes later.
Stunned with unusually bad night at Benihana
Benihana has always been a favorite with my family. Normally we go to the Plano Restaurant, but they were booked. Since I had been to Dallas before, I made reservations. Our visit was horrible. Service was poor, the chef was a grumpy old guy that gave no performance at all. We were stunned whenever he said a word. Food was just ok. We didn't even stay for dessert.
