The food was extremely bland and poorly cooked. Even when we asked our Chef if he could add extra garlic butter, he did not. Some of our shrimp didn’t seem to be cooked all the way and they were whole, when usually they’re cut. Our waitress was very rude, not very accommodating and we always had to look for her. I frequent Benihana quite often, it’s one of my favorite restaurants but I will not be returning to this location. During my past three visits I’ve noticed the morale of this Benihana is quickly dying.

The food was nasty , not seasoned well. They are lacking in the cleanliness department (we had to ask for clean plates & for the chef to properly clean the grill). It’s covid people do better!

Been to this location 4 times but this time our server did pay us no mind at all. She disappeared for the whole time we were there until the very end when she decided to get us new drinks. Then finally came back 15 mins later to give us the check. In which she lied and told us that their is and automatic gratuity on our check of 18% eventhough we had less people than needed to have automatic gratuity.

I have never been to any Benihana's, so I choose this location to celebrate my 41 st birthday. My experience was great! They provided great service from the waitress to the chef. There was big mishape with my salad so they us a $47 reduction on our bill. Overall its a great location,my friends and I enjoyed ourselves. I will definitely return.

We visited for my daughter’s birthday. My daughter loved it, but we thought the service was a bit off, although our waitress was very sweet. It seemed like there simply was not enough waitstaff, even though the restaurant was maybe 50-60% full at most. It was difficult to get the waitress’s attention, even to have a refill of water, etc. Most of our table ordered the hibachi meat, and we each found that the meat was fatty, which I have not experienced before on previous visits. We thus wondered if a cheaper cut of meat may now be used or whether the kitchen staff did not properly prepare the meat for the hibachi chef. Also, the ladies room was a mess - dirty, sticky, broken hand towel machine.

Chef was attentive and social distancing guidelines were met. However, this particular restaurant was extremely noisy due to the number of families with small children.

well i must say going back go benihana in manhasset was great. the reason for my three stars was: i was there celebrating my birthday. i noticed everyone around us celebrated a few birthdays - sang happy birthday and was given a cupcake or something with a candle. at the end or our meal we waited and waited and no one came over and sang happy birthday. i had given my $30 certificate but still no one came over .. next thing i knew we were handed the bill.. it was disappointing.. the food was great and cooked to perfection... all the hostess and staff were extremely nice.

It was a holiday so it was a little louder than normal but that was understandable due to the day we chose to go. That did not take away from anything else, in all honesty. This is the second time we have been and the food was fantastic, both in quality and quantity. The staff was very personable and accomodating! We will absolutely be back.

Grandmas Mother’s Day

It was our grandmas 1st time & my 9 yews son 1st time experience. All the other table’s chief were more entertaining, our was not. The onion volcano failed, there was not much after that. Food was good , lobster & shrimp cooked perfectly. My prefer my Son salmon with Avocado tartar which didn’t look fresh, basically Avocado puréed. It look like it was made yesterday. Salmon piece was small but cook well. He enjoyed it.
