We had 22 people and two tables/grills - the two chefs put on a boring display of cooking show skills (need to take lessons from Kobe’s in Largo). The portions of food were small but tasted good. Last visit.

I already knew this restaurant from other places and it was exactly the same! Awesome food. They prepare the food in front of you w a small show. Your kids may love ir ! Also, the fried rice is very good as well as anything you choose when it comes to sea food. Very well recommended !!

Love the food and the entertainment! I always enjoy this place. The process to be seated when it is busy, not busy, or you have a reservation could use some improvement.

Good Japanese hibachi food with good chefs to serve you up close and personal. I usually get the seafood combination hibachi delight and my husband's selection always involve steak.

Had a family dinner with six of us plus two unrelated parties. The chef did the usual show cooking and the food was great. We typically eat lunch (lunch boats) at our local Benihana at least once a month and eat dinners there about twice a year. This Benihana's service and food quality was consistent with our local Benihana. Some... More

I've been to Benihana several times in the past, but I haven't been there for a couple of years. On a recent weeknight, we had a 7:30 reservation but were not seated until about 8:15. No food or even water arrived until about 8:45. They clearly were very overbooked and understaffed. The food was fine, but the service delays really... More

This place is good, but if you've been to one Benihana, you've been to this one too. There isn't anything special about this location compared to others. It gets very busy here most nights. The birthday discount coupons are also very popular and at this location there will easily be 5-10 people celebrating a birthday any given night (which is... More

The hibachi was great. All of the food was good. The spicy tofu was perfect. The ginger dressing was delicious. The sushi was not that good, but the meals that my family had were very good. The steak was a small portion though tasty to my husband. The service was pretty good but slow.

I've been to Japanese hibachi restaurants before. The food was really good, but the chef knew the people we shared a table with, so he was conversing with them more than providing the classic show. They also had a mustard sauce as opposed to the typical shrimp sauce. Bethesda seems to be an odd place anyways, maybe it just goes... More

This was a decent meal with a good staff. Very attentive and friendly. The food was what I would call "OK". In the end, the bill was higher than I would expect for the quality of the food. Not bad, but not great to be sure.
