A word from Benihana – Westgate Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
A fresh experience every single time. Benihana is the first name in Japanese, exhibition-style cooking method known as "teppanyaki." Sip authentic sake and listen to the gentle rains as they caress the soul. The realistic special-effects fireworks, lush Japanese gardens, flowing ponds, exotic statuary and authentic Torri Arch soaring above are some of the reasons Las Vegas visitors and locals alike have voted Benihana tops in the city three years in a row. Voted "Best of Las Vegas" by the Las Vegas Review Journal’s. The real reason though is the fabulous fare. From mouth-watering steak, tender chicken, succulent seafood and garden-fresh vegetables to a variety of sushi rolls and other Japanese favorites, your meal is prepared fresh and served by a performing chef, right before your eyes.

    This Benihana is more unique than any other that we have been to previously. The ambiance is quite good! Some of it is dated and cheesy, but overall, it is well done with private rooms, water features, and very nice interior landscape.

    This is our favorite restaurant. We always choose Benihana for any birthday or anniversary celebrations. The service was spot on and the food was absolutely delicious. We have always and will continue to recomend this restaurant to friends and acquaintenances. Also the locals "hot spot" discount is certainly a awesome deal.

    We hosted dinner for 10 people at Benihana after a long day at a tradeshow. The restaurant itself is great looking. Fun, different. Our chef was very entertaining. The food was outstanding…the service excellent. It was one of our team member's birthday so the Benihana staff helped us celebrate with a "chef hat", singing, special attention to the birthday boy, ice cream & candles. It was the perfect setting for our boisterous group. The nearby tables had the same energy going and that made it even more fun! We had a great time and it made me wonder why it had been such a long time since I had chosen Benihana as a dining option. This is a venerable restaurant that appeals to everyone and always delivers a quality dining experience!

    Main reason I went here was because it was in my hotel and I didn't feel like Mexican which was my other option. I have been to plenty habatchi style places before and to an extent they are always the same. The chef was great, the waitress was MEH. My biggest complain was I felt shoved in a corner with no easy way out considering I didn't know the people around me. They have shoved 10 pounds of tables into a 5 pound bag.

    Perfect spot for dinner with ages ranging from 6-60. Our fermi ends from Scotland lived the experience and the food was great. The chef us usually puts on a knife show and turning the dinner into complete entertainment. Regrettably our chef just cooked the meal-- a little disappointing. If you take away the interactivity and the cooking show then Benihana is still good food but maybe not as interesting.

    Dined on 8/30/2014
    My wife and I go to this location Las Vegas every year for the past 4 years, the experience we had was Dissapointing, rude. We always share a plate and my wife will always get her own soup. However, this time they wanted to charge is $10 for a bowl of small soup that comes with the meal. They went on to say because its late they can't do it and said that she will Get fired, I simply asked if there policy changed because it was never an issue. They said they do it sometimes but It was not clear why they didn't want to give my wife a soup, It would of been fine if they said that's our policy, but not once I heard them say that. I ordered the teriyaki steak and for some reason the portion was very small. I split mines with my wife.

    My Partner ordered the Lemon Chicken and I ordered the Teriyaki chicken both of them tasted the same no Teriyaki sauce was on mine very bland I have been there many times and lately I think that it has gone down hill. My partners Lemon chicken was bland and the only lemon on it was a slice of lemon that the chef put on it. Very disappointing dinner.

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    I won dinner for 3 at Benihana so even if I had a complaint, which I don't, I wouldn't be taking this survey. When my son, my wife, & I walked into the restaurant we couldn't help noticing how beautiful the decor is. After being seated we were greeted immediately by a drink & appetizer hostess who took our order and, after serving our drinks & appetizer, continued to be attentive to our drink needs through out our meal. Our teppan chef was very skilled & made our dinning experience quite enjoyable. Of course as fresh & delicious as the dinner ingredients were he could have just cooked & dinner would have still been marvelous. I've eaten at other Benihana's & know that it can be a bit expensive but for a special occasion it's well worth it.

    Benihana NEVER disappoints! We eat here once a week and travel 30 minutes to get there (it's soooo worth it). Recommend a party of 4 to 6 to take advantage of the full experience. The filet is always grilled to perfection and the scallops are a great size and firm, juicy -- delicious every single time--- be sure to order a side of Diablo sauce and you'll be glad you did. For the best service, just ask for Kenny -- he doesn't skip a beat. If you arrive before the rest of your party, just head a few steps over to the left of Benihana and pull up a chair for a drink with the friendly bartenders at the quaint full service bar.

Por último te exigen propina como sí fuera una obligación cuando la misma depende del servicio, el cual insisto, fue pésimo.

  • Benihana - Las Vegas- Westgate
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/20/2014
    This Benihana is a very, very nice location. Scenery is way above the normal Benihana's around. What I do like about this location - is the fact the chefs here are Japanese or asian. Not at the ones near me. Kinda changes the experience some. Food always outstanding, and service is always great. Venue seemed to be celebrating their 45th bday. For toast w/ warm sake and small piece of birthday cake was given. Was surprised that the ice cream dessert that was to come with the dinner wasn't offered. But everything was great. Love this location. Good to go to whether a few people or even solo.
