Service is efficient and meal is served quickly.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe overall visit was nice,The overall visit was nice, very kid friendly far as menu & entertainment.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIn the mood to grooveI enjoyed the ambiance. I was treating my boyfriend for his birthday. To watch his facial expressions was priceless. As the chef began to prepare the food and to actually see how it was prepared and to know what you were eating, words can't express the experience. the mango lemonade was delicious and everything we ate was tasty. I will be going back.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana is very Enjoyable!I really enjoyed Benihana! It was my boyfriend and I and we sat with another table of two and another table of four and they were enjoyable people! I was worried that we might be sat with people we do not like and luckily the people were great. The chef was awesome and funny and the food was cooked to perfection.
My only issue was the fact that I smelled like food after I left other than that, it was perfect!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed it!I had made a reservation for my Husband's birthday and it was very good.

Seasoned customers and newbies all loved their meals and our in iron host, Chef Andrey.
We had both visitors and locals. Visitors are comforted that they maintain the same high quality and flavor they are known for across the country. My guests were VERY pleased (and we had two very picky eaters). Thanks again Benihanas.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFun hibachi in NYCWent with 3 friends and shared a table with 4 other people.

Grsiel5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily Re-unionWe enjoyed the versatility and the show. Food was prepared to our liking, though it was diverse. We loved the nice atmosphere, the warm and relaxed feel of the place, the comfortable dining and the friendly treatment of the restaurant staff. I have been dinning in Benihana since 1985. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The soup was amazing and the salad was refreshing. The very well done stake was to the Mother's liking. We liked the Salmon, with onion and zucchini. Everyone loved the dinner. Service was well-timed and friendly.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and tastyMy daughter and I dined here for lunch before seeing a Broadway play and I'm glad we did.

Opentable was a great find, i made the reservation at 4am, I called the next day to confirm the reservation and i was in the system.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSemiSweet ExperienceOverall I had a good time. I only have two complaints, one was that the food was under seasoned. I had the mango shrimp and my date had the teriyaki chicken, although the vegetables served as an appetizer were great (the zucchini and onions). My other complaint is one that I guess I up to chance, but the other couples at the table seemed very dry in humor. Our chef was great and very funny, and me and my date were laughing and playing along, but the others were rather quiet.
When I was done eating I got a doggy bag and the lady accidentally dropped my shrimp and she went back and had some made for me which was incredibly sweet!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the fact that my foodI love the fact that my food is being cooked in front of me and the chef is doing tricks with the food.
