Have not been to Benihana in years, but was very happy with our dinner. We were at a table with two other couples with one child each (we had our 9 year old son) and had a very nice dinner. This is not the spot for a romantic meal, but I really felt we got our money's worth. the chef was skilled as well as friendly. My Son now calls this his favorite restaurant, and we enjoyed it as well. I would like to remark on the Manager who handled a drunk and irate woman in the lobby on the way out. She was causing quite a scene, screaming and asking for a free meal, but he was calm and controlled. When we went into the parking lot to leave she was staggering around asking everyone to kill the place. I don't know what that meant, but I give the Manager kudos for remaining restrained. I would have called the cops. We will go back for sure, for the food and service.

I haven't been to a Benihana in years, but my girlfriend was recently promoted at work and I though it a fun place to take a group of friends to celebrate. Our chef wasn't very animated or friendly (as I was used to them being so in the past), he didn't answer questions that he was asked about he sauces or the food. We found ourselves enjoying other chefs do their presentation at other tables. For what we paid for our plates we were given small portions of protein... it was very disappointing. We made the best of it as we had great company amongst ourselves, but we didn't feel like the staff was there for us at all. I likely won't return to this Benihana location, but will likely give the Bethesda location a try in the future.

I remember a time when Benihana was the gold standard for Japanese Hitachi restaurants, not anymore. We went as a family for a birthday, and didn't think it was anything special. The service was very slow, we sat at out table for probably ten minutes before we were even approached for our drink order. The entire meal took over an hour and a half, and not because we ordered multiple courses. There was just a ton of downtime between each time we were waited on or served. Believe me, I understand spreading out a meal, and we weren't in a hurry, it was just really slow... and the restaurant was only about ten percent full.
The food was good, the steak was a nice cut, my daughter liked her white noodles, everything else, chicken, rice, shrimp, was typical. Our "chef" was very shy and didn't put on much of a show.
Our meal was $100.00 for four people without a tip, and none of us were drinking.
We'll find someplace else next time. Sorry Benihana

nice presentation, great drinks, good food. go for the presentation, not so much the food (boring). The drinks were really good... different types, wish I could try out different ones, but the food need to be better to return on a regular basis.

We ate here while waiting for a flight out of Dulles that eventually got cancelled. I loved the food. But It was a bit pricey for the fare offered. Also, sitting next to people who weren't well versed in table etiquette was not a good experience. Would I go back? Probably not, as I do not live in the area. But I am glad I got to experience it.
