Benihana - Manhasset
Krystal was the best
Great experience, tasty food
The service was good, but it was very very loud and she missed a few items that we wanted and it was hard to get her attention to fix. The chef had a few issues with the cooking. The traditional volcano fell apart and was just flash of flame which disappointed the kids. The steaks were over cooked but still tasty, we needed extra sauce the add some juice. We were disappointed with our experience since this wasn't our first time and we had a large party for our daughters birthday.
We wanted more Knife tricks from our chef the food was great and so was the price
I love Benihana! Their food is very fresh and cooked to perfection right in front of you. It's great for a special occasion.
Food and sushi was on point 👍 - short wait time and convenient parking
7 yr old Birthday
Everything was good!
Great time for a birthday celebration!
They were very helpful with our birthday celebration.
La comida Es muy buena y el ambiente muy relajo para pasar una buena noche en familia y amigos en mejor lugar
Everything was great. However, the chef wasn't entertaining. He didn't put on much of a show like the ones we get when we usually visit.
This Benihana location is a bit small and cramped. The service was decent, the facilities were clean, but the food was just ok. Not terrible but ok.
Very Friendly Service, Had A Great Time With My Husband. The Food Was Absolutely Wonderful
Food was very bland. Average at best compared to other hibachi spots. First time at a Benihana and was surprised at all the hype and reputation.
Birthday celebration at Manhasset location, been coming here as a family for over 20 years. Quality of the meal is still high, and honestly that is the reason our kids - now grown- still ask to go. Other factors; the chef “show”, eating dinner prepared directly in front of you, the multi-course meal, all okay but some of that original luster is gone. The franchise isn’t quite as on point as it was and chefs vary in expertise. The price point is a treat, not an any day family meal. Once or twice a year, we overpay for the nostalgia.
Waitress didn’t really tend to the table. Dirty bowls sat around us for quite a while and we barely saw her to get drink refills. The chef was really confused about who ordered what for some reason and the chicken wasn’t completely cooked!! Very disappointed; I’ve been to Benihana many times and I’ve never experienced anything like this.
Food was good, but wait for food was long. Overall I love coming here.
Being put at table with strangers difficult. The group we were with were unfriendly and had poor behaved children.
Our Chef had no personality and used way too much salt and pepper on the food. So loud I had a headache from it.
The worst night ever they didn’t honor my reservation had to wait an additional hour 40 minutes to be seated on top of the hour that we already waited because our party was big then to be seated finally someone at the table had lobster which I am highly allergic to when I asked for my food to be made inside it’s turned into a big fiasco headache after my party eat then my food came out and I was scolded by the waitress for not telling her earlier that I had any food allergies she made this issue totally my own like who does that she was like arguing with me about my food allergy.
Celebrating a Birthday
Great experience but getting drinks (water) took forever.
The person that cook the food didn't do really nothing good and it was my daughter birthday and only one person song her the birthday song and I saw in other groups they had more than one person sing happy birthday service wasn't good
We always celebrate a family member's birthday here and love it. The food is excellent, steaks are tender and flavorful. The seafood was delicious! Our chef didn't do as big of a show as many wwe have had before but he was an excellent cook. All the food was prepared well and to order. The soup and salad is always lovely with the terrific ginger dressing. Should supply a knife since some of the lettuce leaves are a bit large and the tomatoes should be cut for the little ones.
The noise level is also a problem but I think we've all come to accept that. BUT PARENTS should be told to keep their children from running around or screaming, AND an ADULT should be made to stay at each table full of kids. All too often there are children celebrating a party and the Adults are sitting close but not with them, socializing with eachother.
It's a family restaurant and I feel the FAMILIES should be in more control than they are.
But thank you for a Fabulous Food Experience.
So loud from kids birthdays. We were with kids too but parents didn’t little to quiet the screaming girls.
Very cold in restaurant, had to wear jacket throughout dinner. Chef messed up order giving one dish to the wrong person. This resulted in overcooking chicken fried rice.
Everything was delicious and the service was fantastic.
Food was fine, service was good, but the experience was mediocre. We came with kids expecting a fun "show," but were very disappointed.
Took the family there had a great time.
The food was great and the Chef was fun. However, the female waiter was in a bad mood from before our table was filled. She completely ruined my moms simple order of lomein and vegetables with no onion. There was onions on everything. She also retrieved my fathers salad while he was still eating it. He turned his head to see his grandchild eating and his salad was gone and it was almost full. Although food was great tasting customer service is very important. It gave my parents an impression that restaurant does not care about you and it was their ffirst time at a bennihanas. I am truly disappointed.
This was a very good experience. The seating was fast, not too crowded. The service was fast. We got a great cook and food was delicious. Reminded me why I keep coming back.
I loved the food. Finally took my fiancé here after attempting for three years. She enjoyed it and the show was GREAT.
I took my brother here for his birthday, we had never been to Benihana but heard good things about it. We made a reservation for 7pm, but wasn’t seated until 7:15. Anytime I make reservations anywhere Im seated immediately. When we were seated the waitress seemed rushed, quickly taking drink and food orders, but not asking my brother or I about appetizer’s like she did the rest of the table. Then she basically told us what we would be eating, that was strange. The cook came, started grilling food, shrimp, vegetables, fried rice, chicken, steak, all looked good while cooking but unfortunately didn’t taste as good as it looked. I was told they treat customers good on birthday occasions, they took a quick pic that didn’t come out well and gave melted ice cream with a candle on top. For the price, I expected much more, but was disappointed. This is elevated fast food at best. Not sure if I will ever return, service, food and experience was truly underwhelming.
The cook, Miguel, tried very hard to entertain the guests; I’ve been at many other Benihanas, so I wasn’t impressed by the lack of service. Dirty plates and glasses were left unattended all evening. I was cheated out of my schrimp order but charged full price. The noise level gives you a headache; everybody had to talk loud to understand the conversation. The decorations are attractive. Won’t return or recommend.
Everything was delicious as usual.
We share a table
They make a poor show and give more to the other people if I have 3 pieces of shirmp is a lot it was my son bday we told them they didn’t even got deserve menu only vanilla or chocolate ice cream
We went for my daughter’s birthday, there were 7 of us. From the start, the customer service is great. Very friendly and helpful staff. The food is great, the chef entertaining, and the price is very reasonable.
Sat down at 2:15. Chef didn’t come out until 3:00. We had to leave at that point as we didn’t expect to wait that long and had to be somewhere by 3:30. Very, very disappointed.
One of our favorites for fun dining. Great hibachi, energetic ambiance great for group dining.
We had a great time celebrating me and my wife’s birthday which is on the same day !! Food was awesome cheif was terrific and funny .we had a blast .... thanks guys
