Benihana - North Little Rock Ratings and Reviews
I always enjoy eating at Benihana. I usually choose it to celebrate my birthday with my family, but my sister-in-law beat me to it this year. I'm still going to go for my birthday, but it will be with my kids. We had a great time and the food was as awesome as always.
The food and service were excellent! Our server was very attentive and friendly. The chef was great and put on a nice show, cracked some jokes, and made our food in a timely and entertaining fashion. It is a little pricey, but it's worth the price as you really are paying for dinner and entertainment.
Celebrated a family birthday here and really enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious, our chef was friendly and entertaining, and our server handled our large group extremely well. We made reservations ahead of time through Open Table. Overall, a great night out for our family.
Service was terrible waited 30 minutes with reservations. We were there over 2 hours for dinner waiting for our cook, waitress to refill drinks, pay for tickets. One person in our party never received her food due to a shellfish allergy. They always prepare the food in the back kitchen for allergies if you prefer. Her food was brought out when we received to-go containers. The worst service we have experienced there.
We have been a frequent diners here over the years, but last night by far was the worst experience ever! The space where you're seated is already limited, but to continue to allow ppl to be seated and literally piled on top of each other to the point that you can't eat, is never acceptable. The waitress disappeared several times and management did nothing about it.
Service has gotten poorer. We had to wait 30 minutes for our reserved table and the front area seemed to be in chaos. Our server seemed overwhelmed. We passed out our own salads and soups because she sat them down at our table but fogot and went to the next table to take orders. It took forever to get our tickets so we spent close to two hours eating lunch. Crazy. Nevertheless, the food was good.
My wife got a coupon for her birthday so we call to make a reservation and she asked if she had to bring the coupon and they told her just to bring her id. No need for printing the coupon. We got there after one hour driving and they told us we couldn't use the coupon and we couldn't get the special deal. I felt lied and really frustrated and we back again this day just to use the coupon but I'll probably not come back and tell my friend back in school not to go. The manager was careless and had zero empathy about the long drive and my wife's birthday. Servers are awesome but the people who run this place dont really care about people I guess.
This place is awesome! We have always had fantastic service here and the owner, Shapur, is super friendly, remembers us and usually shows us special treatment. I have also never seen an owner who not only waits tables but will set them up and bus them with his staff!
But this isn't even that best part- the food here is delectable: melt in your mouth steak (that is so good it tastes the same the next day as leftovers), succulent, fresh scallops, popping shrimp and crisp and savory veggies.
Love it here and will keep bringing our friends over and over!
This is always our spot for bringing our out of state guest and just a nice drop in spot for the family for occasional dining. Usually the wait staff is friendly and lively but not so much the last two times we have dined. I boast about the friendly high energy wait staff but I guess this was a off night or they weren't feeling it. You know good customer service is what keep us coming back. This will not deter us from coming but I want them to like their job and make us feel like they do anyway. We have been dining with you for years and don't plan to stop. Good Eats
