Benihana - Houston
Great Food!!! The chef was outstanding, with wonderful skill in addition to being a great cook!
Everything was excellent as always. I will return again.
The food was good (filet mignon). The exception was the bland fried rice. Our chef was excellent and we had a great experience. People at the front were not very welcoming, but the owner (manager) made us feel like royalty. One problem-did not know green tea came with dinner, but usually served at the end of the meal. We will be back soon.
Bad service. It was my first and last time. .............
Love to go. We always meet nice people, wonderful service and delicious food for a very reasonable price. We go at least twice a year.
The restaurant was quite dirty. We were seated at the table which had food particles still on the grill and table remaining from lunch - it was now dinner time. The floor was dirty. As we looked around, it was evident the place was not clean. Mentioned to the manager and he said thank you - we were busy today. Too busy to clean the place? I never heard of a restaurant not cleaning. After telling the manager, no action was taken to remedy and clean. The staff was very active singing happy birthday to the customers but I guess cleaning is not part of their program.
I scheduled a birthday here and they were very nice and supportive while having fun with us. I'm glad I came here and will be back again.
We always have a great time at Benihana! We usually eat at the bar area but since we were there for a birthday dinner it was still a great dining experience. I do have to admit the waitress may have been a bit overwhelmed since I didn't get my appetizer until we were done with our meals but overall we still had a nice time.
We love this place
Had a great time
Benihana never disappoints. Always good food and a good time.
As ever, well presented and tasty food. Doesn't aim for exceptional but fills it's niche very well. A good reliable option done well.
Chef ITO was great and really worked hard to accommodate my mother's shellfish allergies and making sure not to use the same utensils he used for the shrimp. Wonderful job!
My parents and I really enjoyed it, I miss the fire show at the beginning of the cooking
Freezing cold where I was sitting.
Our server told us there was no draft beer and in fact there was. We asked for brown rice and was told you didn’t have any but it was on the menu. Our chef did not do ANY of the traditional teppan show with the knives/volcano etc. It was very disappointing considering it was a double birthday for my son and myself. We are big Benihana fans but we won’t be coming to this location again.
Our waitress and cook, Jimmy, was awesome! Thank you for the service it was great. We will be back soon!!!
Great food and service every time. We come here for every special occasion. Never disappoints.
Got there early before too crowded and noisy, therefore it was better than normal until the end of the meal when the crowds showed.
I enjoyed my visit to Benihana to celebrate my birthday. The chef was excellent and the restaurant wasn't crowded. It was very enjoyable.
Waiters are extremely attentive and polite. Food is delicious.
i hadn't been in years but my daughter wanted to go there for her birthday (42). Five of us were in the party and we were able to have our own table, which made it nice. Food was good, chef was entertaining, they brought a special dessert for her, and it was fun. The only real downside to me was the noise level. I'm at an age where ambient noise makes it hard to hear conversation, and the noise added to the configuration of the table made it difficult to converse with everyone. That said, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will certainly be back again soon. The staff, from greeters at the front door, to servers, to cooks, were all outstanding, and that goes a long way toward making a dining experience a positive one.
Everyone was really helpful, polite, friendly we like it a lot. It was our first time there and we had an amazing dinner. Tony the chef did a great job.
It was a lovely experience for birthday but I would love to have a section for families with kids. It was a lot of kids running around and babies crying. When you are on a date, you prefer not to hear the crying and kids not being in their seats. Overall, it was great.
food is always good, cooked there in front of you Hibachi style. staff is friendly and restaurant is clean.
Always perfect!!! Food is always fresh and delicious. I love the entertaining chefs.
There is a lot of hype surrounding Benihana. It's just not what I expected at all. The service wasn't bad. Our chef prepared everything step by step. I ordered chicken and steak. I got my steak about 30 minutes after I was done eating my chicken, which was getting cold while waiting. We got our grilled onions at the very end when we were asked if we wanted desert. The chef forgot about them. This a very overly hyped restaurant.
The food was good and the service OK. Yet the place was crowded and the traffic of people was not properly managed especially by the entrance. To have a better experience consider going after pick hours or avoid going on the weekend. Also, staff should consider explaining to new customers how the communal tables work, we had to do that with the family that was going to share the table with us because they thought the whole table was for them, yet the father of the family did not appreciate it and gave us an attitude when we tried to explain how it works. So to avoid any problems for customers, I think the host/hostess should ask customers first if they are new to the restaurant and if that is the case take the time to explain them how it works.
Waited for over an hour. Even if i had a reservation. Call on the phone and i was on hold over 20 minutes.
The service was sub par, and we didn’t get a few of the items that were supposed to be included in our meal. The food was great, otherwise.
Great food. They offer their signature Yum Yum sauce. Very attentive service!
Great place for lunch!!! Lots of tasty foods at an affordable price. Something for everyone in our group. We had salads, soup....spicy chicken....steak & shrimp.....salmon boat ..... & lots of great fried rice. Cooked to perfection while you enjoy the show. Tony our cook was great & funny!! Thanks .. you steal the show
Such delicious good and great service.
Made a reservation. I don’t know how long we waited to be seated, but a couple who came in way after us were seated at the next table. They did not have a reservation. Their chef began cooking at least ten minutes before ours did.
Always a fun experience, food was fantastic. Service great.one of our fzvirite spots to go
Waited 40 minutes for chef. Restaurant is dated. Food and service was great
We had a great time, however the wait was long. With a reservation we still waited 2 hours before our food was served. With 3 small kids that was tricky!
Excellent service and great food
