My family decided to eat dinner here and we loved it. The saying "don't pay with your food" went right out of the window. The chef did just that while cooking the did right at the take in front of us. The kids loved that the chef made them laugh when he caught the shrimp tail in the top of... More

Took a fairly large group (needed two cooks and two tables), which we called ahead for to get a reservation. They had plenty of time to prepare, so it was quite a surprise when we arrived and they looked at us like we were foreign invaders. After a 10 minute wait, they finally seated us. The server, who was attempting... More

After a wait even with a reservation we were seated and had yet another wait to take our order.The appetizers they sent were wrong so another wait for corrections.The Chef was fine and entertaining for the kids. My biggest disappointment was they neglected to do... More

We were a bit disappointed with this Benihana. We went for an anniversary celebration and, based on previous experience, expected a fun evening. It was average at best. The chef's showmanship was adequate but not great, the food was good but not great and the waitress seemed tired or overworked. There were ten of us at the table and it... More

The waitress was rude, the food was terrible, and the cook did a horrible job with the show. You know it's bad when the General Manager comps 5 out of 6 people's food. And the 6th person paid 50 percent of their meal. I have been to Benihana's from California to Georgia and by far this was to the worst.... More

The food was standard Hibachi food, and enjoyable. Service was ok. My kids loved it and we left very satisfied. The restaurant is not cheap so be ready to spend some money.

I haven't been here for many years. The service was very good and food at a good pace. Onion soup was a good start and then the fun begins. Talented chef was entertaining and friendly. We had seafood selections.( scallops and salmon) since they are cooked in front of you they were done to perfection. Fried rice was very tasty... More

Benihana in the dulles town center plaza. Food is good, preparation show is the usual Benihana. Service is spotty at best, a. Lot of times it boils down to employee training. If you're in the restaurant and bar business I don't think I need to explain what a gin&tonic is. Price vs quality is a bit low. Mild recommendation

Everyone seems to do hibachi these days and while the food is good, the cooks are no longer oriental, staging is the norm and while service is good, you tend to feel rushed through the meal. If you order an appetizer, there is no time to enjoy it before you are rushed through the show. Too expensive.
