Our waiter David was awesome! He was very attentive to his tables, friendly, and professional! Linh was our chef. We ordered seafood, steak, and chicken. The food was prepared with flair and was cooked to perfection! The scallops and calamari were melt in your mouth. Linh is most excellent! We have eaten at three other habachi restaurants and no where else compares to Benihana!

Out of all of the hibachi places I’ve been to this one was my least favorite. There is pretty much an up charge for everything. Fried rice is an additional $4. Our chef was not very energetic. Our waitress was fantastic and very kind. The food was okay but overpriced.

The food was really good. The steak dishes were better than any hibachi style restaurant in the area. The server was friendly and helpful with menu items. The chilli shrimp sushi was outstanding. However, the chef that came to our table did not entertain during cooking.?she did not speak to our table except to make sure our food order was correct. My son eats low carb and he couldn’t substitute extra vegetables for the rice.

The food and service were excellent. The clientele was sketchy at best. Low class. Not a place to take kids....a date ...etc.

The show usually put on by the chef was minimal but the food was very good. Some of the vegi’s were quite salty if you’re on a lower sodium diet. I just passed mine to my husband. The sushi was fresh and delicious. We had very good table mates so it was a very enjoyable dinner.
It was very pricey especially considering the fried rice is an add on? Not sure why??

We had Kade as our server. He was great!!! We had Linh as our cook. She makes great food. We were seated by the owner. Rocky. He is always pleasant. And yes we will take that house and car you offered when I asked you if I could get a birthday cake! Ha Ha. We always enjoy our meal at Benihana North Little Rock. We stay at that Wyndham when traveling to little rock so that we can have the Benihana experience. My husband always gets Rocky's Choice and I usually get Benihana Special. Linh did an exceptional job on our meals.

We went for my birthday and the only negative thing I have was that we made reservations for 6:30 and still had to wait almost an hour before being sat. I do understand it’s busy but was quite frustrating with kids who needed to get in bed for school the next day. Otherwise our cook and waiter were excellent! Food was outstanding.

We got seated right away because we had reservations. The place got really crowded. We got waited on right away. The food and service was excellent. Sorry about the rest of the people if they had to wait. They should have gotten reservations like us.

Great time was had by all. This chef was much better at presentation than the one in July. Even though my son didn't want it, I love the birthday celebration you do for your guest, His first time there and he wants to come back. We will be back in few weeks.

I was grateful to be able to have my reservations met I liked the hospitality when I arrived I had a short wait and I really appreciated that I thought it was very ironic and unusual and downright shocking that at the table that I shared with others consisted of all North Little Rock School District employees such as myself and the spouse of one co-worker who was also celebrating his birthday in the same birthday month ask me although I shared great company and had an awesome time anyway I would have loved to have a private table as requested on my reservation the staff was very nice and accommodating and deserve to be commended for their outstanding performance

It was ok
Food the best part but my shrimp was not cleaned well, still had the vein on several ones.
Front/hostess staff should be more welcoming and inviting.
Waitress kind of rude, it was our first time there had questions and she didn’t really have time to help because she “ had other tables”
Chef was what you would expect
Overall there are other Hibachi places in town and I would go there

Its a noisy place when busy but I dont mind because I expected it. Our server forgot one of our salads and was slow on refills. The cook was nice, though when putting pepper on the rice he put too much and made me and my grandma cough. But other than that it was good. Not the best im my opinion but it was okay.

Pretty loud and overall it was great but we felt like we were rushed out. As soon as he finished cooking the chicken, which was last, the waitress was at our table with to go boxes as I was taking my first bite. Also, the cocktails are very weak. But other than those, a pretty good experience.

I made a reservation online and upon arrival for my reservation I was told I'd have to wait an hour by the host. He told me due to the holiday was the reason I had to wait an hour. It also to about 30 minutes to get my food which I ordered after deciding to sit myself in the bar area. The host needs better training.

We were one of the last tables to be sat down. That may be why the service wasn’t incredible. The food itself was good, but we had several items that were forgotten throughout our dinner.

We took a party of 17 to Benihana to celebrate the holiday season. We had a great time and the restaurant manager went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. Chefs were great and the service was outstanding. Our server was witty and friendly. Will go back again.
