My 5 year old loved the show

I've been to other hibachi/japanese style places, but never Benihana. My wife and I had the special (chicken and filet for 2 - $49 (bonus - also came with shrimp)). My son had the kids chicken special. The three of us sat at a table with a family that had 3 kids of their own. The chef did a... read more

Took our Grandson there for a fun experience. He enjoyed it, he had never been before . However, the cooks don 't do as my has they use to. The food was not good, chicken was tough, filet quality not great and I know the palate it generally a light one in japanese food but the meal really had no... More

We decided to drop into Benihana's after nixing some other options in the area and were pleased to be seated right away. My observations below: Pros: - Unlike older reviews, our chef did do the onion volcano and some sort of vegetable train. I think he dropped one thing (not a utensil) but considering the number of times that he... More

It's hibachi...there's only so much that can be done. If you've been to a Fujihana or another local hibachi restaurant more than once, you've seen all the tricks. Even still, the personality of the chef makes the experience fun. The tricks are cheeky and silly but all in good fun. My husband and I had the chicken and shrimp for... More

For Xmas dinner I took my family to Benihana's. My family seemed to enjoy the food and festivities; however, I noticed some obvious degredation in service from my experience some 12 years ago at a Los Angeles Benihana. The food was good but not excellent as I expected. The chef was obviously 2nd string as his trick moves were all... More

Overpriced, overcooked, bad show and service. Worse Benihana experience I have ever had.

First off I was under the impression that most Japanese Steak Houses are basically the same, and when it comes to the chains, they usually are. You get the good food, a bit of a performance, and maybe a laugh or two. This was our first trip to Benihana's and all we got was disappointment. I try to stay positive,... More

I had a coupon for 2 dinners for $44 on Jan. 21, 2009. Upon arriving at restaurant, the woman who seated us was rude by returning to her phone to take a call, despite the fact we were already in route to the table! We had to wait for her to finish the call. Chief at our table dropped his... More

My family went to the Dulles Benihana on Dec. 24, 2008 for my employer's holiday luncheon. Our office manager had booked the restaurant and put in detailed orders for each guest months before the party. All of the other tables (coworkers of mine and their families) had a chef at their table who prepared their meals and served them on... More
