We sat on restaurant side without the hibachi grill because we did not want to sit with other people. Service was great. Our server was very nice. Food came out fast and was tasty. I ordered the hibachi steak and shrimp with veggies and fried rice. I got only onions with no mushrooms or zucchini. We were surprised to see all patrons in the restaurant entered without a mask and no one was asked about vaccination card. Also the bathroom was filthy.

well i must say that going last night was AWESOME...
the restaurant was not too crowded but everyone was having fun and just all celebrating.. very nice to see...
i would like especially to thank Kai - the manager here at the location in westbury.. there was an issue i was concerned about the last time i was there and i must say there was a big improvement.. so happy to see and know that your suggestions that you make are taken seriously. went to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday as her certificate was expiring. she was so happy when they gave her the traditional benihana mug - she loved it....

We never stayed and left. We go to this location once or twice a week but last night was overpacked. Too many people seating on top of each other and felt very uncomfortable with Covid rates raising and when we asked to seat at another table, the manager yelled at us and said we are back to normal. We don’t need to have space and this is it. Just very uncomfortable and unprofessional.

I think our experience wasn’t great cause our server might have been new but then I feel like they should have paired him up with someone else. We waited 45 minutes at the table before even getting any drinks or soup/salad. People seated before us were served their drinks first. I was scared to eat because an allergy I had mentioned before was not brought to my cook’s attention. With these hiccups, he tried to he really nice and be attentive the rest of the dinner but it was really rough in the beginning.

Excellent experience at Benihana. My only complaint is that the teppanyaki chef had no personality at all. He didn’t engage with us and just sort of went through the motions in preparing our food. Most people come to establishments such as this one to have a fun time and to see the theatrics and be humored. This was not the case with our chef. Other than that the food was excellent, the ambiance was excellent, and our servers were excellent.

Our first time back since Covid and we had a great time. Food was excellent and just as good as we remembered it. We had shrimp, chicken, and steak - all perfect. Kids loved the noodles from the children's menu. Cocktails were also delicious, but we would have preferred them a little stronger. Nothing to complain about though.

Waitress was horrible. Chef was not provided with all
The food at once so there was a lag in cooking dishes. Shrimp sat for 10 minutes before meat was cooked. Before we left a spider dangled from the range hood 🤢
Table was not properly cleaned. Food bits all over flat top from previous guest. Shocked at how dirty this place was.

We had reservations for 7:30pm. We arrived on time. We didn't get seated until 40 minutes later. Then we waited and waited for a chef to prepare our food. When the chef finally came it was 9:10pm. We was starved. He started banging the knives. We just wanted our food he could keep all the tricks. It was my birthday. I didn't have a nice time honestly speaking.

Perfect restaurant to share with loved ones. Food is yummy & the entertainment was great
Also a good place to take teenagers so when they ignore you, you can stare at the chef.

My wife and I came here to celebrate our 10yr anniversary. The food was amazing and in abundance, as I ended up taking food home which I hardly ever do. The service was decent for the most part, even though our waitress forgot to bring our drinks a few times. Overall it we had a great time. My wife and I were very satisfied.

So noisy, plus wearing masks, I believe the waitress could not hear....so when the bill came, I was charged for 2 Chateubriand when I knew that I only ordered one for me and strip steaks for my family. I paid, but it was a very uncomfortable situation and awkward.
Also ZERO menus were given to my family. I had to walk back to the hostess area and get my own menus. My family does not have a iphone and the apple ipad in my bag would have worked on the cocktail napkin RFID, if only there was wifi available in the restaurant. It was a difficult situation, awkward.

Our chef Chow was terrible. He was rude, ignored us, wasnt fun at all. He sucked the life from the table. All around us people were having fun and laughing, unfortunately our chef gave off the vibe that we were at a funeral. Man i hated that guy. It was my gf’s birthday and this dude ruined the dinner. “Chow” if you ever read this you’re terrible

This is the first time I had a bento box with no rice. Kinda weird to have steak and no rice. Waitress told me that they give you rice if you ask.........Fruit salad turned out to be a piece of pineapple and a piece of orange. Only one gyoza, that was cold. Bunch of kids running the check in desk. They could do better.
