My grandchildren always enjoy coming to Benihana's for their birthday. They love the special attention they receive and the birthday mug.

Such a fun time
This was a wonderful choice to celebrate my son' first holy communion. A friend of the family wanted to take Tyler and our family out for a special day. There were 9 of us and we fit so well around the table. Tyler's eyes were wide open with awe, with occasional laughing, as he watched the cooking prep. The food was delicious, although the portions small. They accommodated my picky eater's requests and she LOVED her meal as a result. Going back next week.

Pretty Good, but Not Quite...
This restaurant has great food and ambiance. It is a wonderful place for groups. However, the place was hard to find because there are no signs outside but one small Benihana sign by the front door. We circled around for quite a few minutes before we saw the sign from a distance. When we got inside, the greeter at the front door was sleeping! We called out to him and he jumped up. He mixed up everyone's reservations, even ours. Not a good first impression on service. Our server and chef was excellent, however there were other servers arguing amonst themselves in another language right by our table. Again, a poor reflection on management.

This is a nice restaurant and you get a ton of food! The food is always really good and my favorite drink is the passionfruit lemonade, it is simply amazing. And this is a great restaurant if you are going with a big group....if you aren't fond of sitting at the same table with people that you do not know, then maybe you shouldn't go here :)

Great place for your birthday dinner. Join the birthday club
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The overall experience was good. The only complaint was that our waitress seemed to hate us for some reason. She came off as very hostile.

Sushi and a Ring.
This dining experience was great. I got engaged. What I thought was an evening of great sushi. Turned out to be an evening I will remember.

a night of nights
this was our anniversary, we couldn't have chosen a better place. The food was one point. The service was superb. The overall staff was very helpful in making that night special. Thanks once again for being so professional, The Abdul-Alim's!

Great Place to eat in a Group
The food here is great and you are constantly eating the whole time. The table is perfect for a large party. You can have a group of twelve friends sit down and enjoy a nice meal.

I took my cousin for his birthday. He had the Hibachi Shrimp and I had the Hibachi Tuna Steak. The tuna could have been cooked more to my liking (when asked I requested rare but it was more medium) but it was still very good. Our Hibachi chef, as always, was very entertaining and everything was delicious. We did have the Alaskan and Dinosaur half sushi rolls which were also very good. It was my cousins first time at Benihana and he can't wait to go back!

Salty food but fun experience
Went to Benihana for my son's birthday. We were greeted promptly and seated once there were enough people to fill the Hibachi table. The waitress was pleasant, and took drink orders immediately. I was impressed at how often the kid's soft drinks were refilled. Server was very attentive.
The meals come as courses, the first being soup. It lacked flavor except for being very salty. More so than other hibachi places I've been to. Second course was salad. Ginger dressing lacked ginger flavor and again was salty. I like my ginger dressing with a hint of sweetness. The zucchini, onions and mushrooms were done well. Steaks were ok. Nothing special
The cook was skilled but lacked personality. He did all the tricks, onion volcano etc.

My group had a wonderful time.

The Chicken was dry but it
The Chicken was dry but it was fun. The chef did not do as much tricks with the knives as I have seen others do.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I took our 2 year old along with us for and early dinner. He was very entertained with the chef's performance and really enjoyed the food. Overal this is a great family friendly restaurant.

7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
When my family first dined at the restaurant we thought it was a great dining experince, The food , atmosphere and overall experince was great. Since then it has become our special restaurant for birthday celebrations. Not once had we been disappointed with the service, food or the atomosphere.

I went there for my son 12th birthday. It was a wonderful experience.
The family loved the whole experience. The kids had so much fun. The food was great. I will definitely go back again.

Carlos is an amazing chef who not only cooks good food but is also very entertaining, personable, and cooks with a warm smile on his face! He listens to how you want something done! When you go, ask for him. You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I went for dinner with our children to celebrate our 13th year wedding anniversary. It was an incredible experience for us as well as for our children. We even video taped done of the cooking presentation and sent it to our son in Hawaii who is in the US Marines. He is dying to go to your restaurant once he gets free time and comes here. Thank you for your great service it was a true unforgettable experience!!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great show, Great food
The food was superb; the show was terrific; prices very fair; good sized portions. All in all a very worthwhile experience for the family. Not the kind of place to go with a first time date. Very casual and not at all intimate.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
they told me horror stories,
Took my lady here in long island for her bday,
The ambience was great, food was excellent...my only "but"
The other 7 people at the table was boring...but I recommend
This place glad I came
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Experience was great. Wasn't noisy. The show and server were exciting and great. The obvious best part was the food. Great shrimp and I never tasted the way they made rice. It was extremely good. I'm definitely coming back here next time
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had an amazing time here. We weren't seated right away but that was only because I had a party of two and had to wait for other people to arrive. Our waitress was nice and the chef was amazing! The food was so amazing! I tried so many new things and I would definitely recommend trying everything that is put on your plate. When you first look at the menue it looks expensive but they give you so much food! Would definitely go back again.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for families or groups
Hibachi style of cooking at Benihana is one of the best!! It is great for families or groups because you can enjoy the food preparation and interact with the chef and one another adding an element of fun. The price point is also decent. I highly recommend it!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun time was had by all!
We were a group of eight. Everyone enjoyed our night out. Server was very attentive and friendly. The chef was fun , entertaining and skillful. The food was very good! The staff sang to the birthday guest of honor and gave her a free sundae. Then she took a group picture of our party and presented it in a folder/frame to the birthday person.

Food is great, the chef is great but the wait for the food to be cook is so long.

Nice Restaurant for Date Night
Took my hubby here for date night. The restaurant has a nice ambiance. The bar/waiting area was nice. The little show done at the hibachi grill was ok. I just wish the cooks were a little more animated. They seemed a little bored. The restaurant is a little hard to have a conversation in, but it is manageable and Heya better when the chef is done cooking. Great place to take a group of friends or kids.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food and Service
The restaurant is nice. The food and the service is good. The chef is entertaining. It is overall a nice place to eat.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service that my girlfriend and I had was amazing the only complaint was the other guests at the table but that it's not something you can control but if it wasn't for them I had a great time with amazing food I will Definitely come again.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place & Great Food
This is a great place to go to celebrate a birthday, I highly recommend booking a reservation with Open Table ahead of time. In the past I went without a reservation and waited almost an hour for a table. I like having my food cooked directly in front of me. I recommend getting fried rice on the side because most entrees come with white rice and the fried rice is amazing. If its a birthday they bring icecream and sing Happy Birthday in English and then Japanese and they take a photo to give you afterwards. Its a cool place for any occasion.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable Hibachi style dining
Better than most. Not tossing food at you like other places. More upscale attitude and chefs are helpful to make your meal just right

Hibachi Dining - a MUST TRY for all
Birthday celebration dinner... WAS SUPER FUN! Went with my toddler (under 5 y.o.) who really enjoyed seeing the chefs cook the food! I don't know if I'd take him back soon given the impatience of a toddler to wait for his meal (that is cooking in front of him) before he can eat. But the food was great, and the waitstaff was SUPER ATTENTIVE to me/my child and very friendly/nice. Would certainly go back!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband was very happy
My husband was very happy and pleased with the service, he's actually still talking about it. He had a wonderful birthday dinner. Thanks to all. He cannot wait to visit again.

Have to go back
Went as a family to celebrate a birthday my five year old loved it! We will be back soon
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went with friends and family to celebrate my sisters birthday and we all had a great time! The food, service and ambiance was perfect! Thanks for a great time!

We were 6 adults for dinner.
We were 6 adults for dinner. Enjoyed the Chef's special, Seafood Diablo. All I can say is one word "amazing"
This was hibachi style dining. Not recommended for couples who would like to "catch up" after not seeing each other in a while.
Food was plentiful. The waiter could have been more attentive, but all in all a fun night. Would definitely return again.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
the only negative of the evening
the only negative of the evening was the wait once we were seeted, until we begin. For about a half hour we watched the opposite side of our Circle eat, waiting for our water drinks. Once our chef came and began, that was amazing. It was worth the wait. Our chef was funny and great at his art.

We recently visited Benihana's Westbury location for my fiance's birthday. Our reservation was for 6pm on a Friday evening. We arrived around 15 mins. early and we were immediately seated. We were shocked because we heard a lot of horror stories about having a long waiting time. We were seated at a table with two other couples. We sat unattended for quite a while because there was some confusion as to which sever was taking our table. They were very apologetic about the long wait and confusion. Everything went pretty smoothly after that. I ordered a Lychee Blossom Martini but it was not availabe. I ended up having a Coconut Mojito instead and it was very good. Overall we had a good time. The food was delicious and the chef was entertaining.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
There was a nice bar and the staff was very nice. They were very friendly waiting on us while the rest of our party arrived. The food was excellent and it was an overall excellent experience.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
No onions please
The food, service, and chef was very good. I did not tell the servers early enough that I do not eat onions, so I was not able to eat most of my food.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was terrific! The food was delicious, the table wasn't over crowded, and the service was more attentive!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best Experience in a Long Time!
I absolutely loved my time here at Benihana's! If it's one thing I like to do, it's to eat good food! I was completely amazed and entertained by my server and the food came out delicious!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We recently went to a different hibatchi place up the road and were severely disappointed. The quality of the food at BeniHana's is far superior. A little pricey but well worth the money.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, good service, and I arrived 20 minutes earlier than my reservation and was able to be seated 5 minutes after arriving.
