The lunch menu is a great value. Lunch is served with vegetable fried rice, mushroom soup, hot tea and assorted vegetables (zucchini, onions and mushrooms). The food was delicious and the portions generous. I would definitely recommend Benihana as a pleasant venue for lunch with friends or family!

The food was great as usual. I was disappointed that they didn’t take a birthday photo, we have had one on every other birthday celebration for years. Maybe they’ve done away with those. Also, the only choice of ice cream was rainbow sherbet and chocolate. Not sure how so many other flavors were not available.

The service wasn’t good. And the food was ok. I expected more from “Benihana”. I will not be going back under any circumstances . I feel you pay for the name rather than the food and service. I also stated my party was there for a birthday and it was never acknowledged.

Went on Thursday night. Would not honor birthday certificate that was 2 days past expiration. 3 other people at table besides my party of 4. Chef's show waste of time. He just went through the motions.
Could not understand their poor business decision not to honor certificate. Never again.

I was at the restaurant at 8:50pm (reservation time was 9:30pm) they place was full and I had to wait until 10:40pm to finally get a table. Thank God because I ordered something at the bar while I was waiting for my name to be called. (Yes, I tip there too)

Maybe because I got forced to paid 18% of tips (forced by waitress) and compensate for all the 8 people that left without tipped, after the rest of the unknown people that were sitting on the same table with me (they were flying leaving as soon as they got back their cards and one couple paid cash but not tip (I noticed it because of the waitress face and she was putting the receipt with the dishes; that’s a sign of No Tip)

Maybe because the chef wasn’t paying attention in reading the people who can absolute tip for his hard work according to the service I received, but I’m still leave 18% of $146 for 2 people even though the chef gave 2 almost dishes in one for people that were sharing the plate.

Yes, I was forced to paid 18% of my $146 bill just because I ordered my third Mai tai watching how the rest of the unknown people that were sit in the same table with us leaving the place in a hurry (of course not tipping)

That’s the reason on my low rating at this BAD EXPERIENCE, but next time I will do the same as those unknown people.

Thanks Benihana for a new experience of how to eat well and leave without tip

Made reservations for 7:30pm and wasn’t seated until 8 pm. Reservations were delayed and wasn’t placed as a high priority. When we finally sat down it was cramped with other guest around the hibachi table and our chef didn’t come until 8:15.

This was my first experience at hibachi and I guess I was expecting the high fire and entertainment that comes with it. I feel I was tremendously let down.

The “Volcano” was a small flame with no type of excitement. Looking at other tables and seeing the extra things other chefs were doing made it seem as if he was trying to rush through.

The Food was delicious and over priced for the quantity. I will definitely not be back to this location and highly doubt will go to the others.

Our waitress was on top of everything and I kind of wished she would be our chef as well.

Thanks for making our Valentine’s Day lackluster.

We frequent Benihana on a regular basis and have rarely had a bad experience. This was the exception. Our cook, Henry, got practically every order wrong and communicating with him was near impossible. We all left hungry. Our server, on the other hand, was one of the best servers I’ve encountered.

I always went to Benihana Manhasset for special occasions and when I wanted hibachi. When Benihana Westbury was built I started going there, but that location has gone significantly downhill over the past few years. Now I have resumed going to the Manhasset location and I have not been disappointed. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly, the restaurant has a happy vibe and I really enjoy the way the chefs encourage you to get involved with your meal. This is the Benihana experience that is severely lacking in Westbury. We had an excellent time on Sunday and will definitely be returning to this location for future meals. Thank you!

Benihana's is a great place to eat, but they like to sit 12 people around the Chef's table with no space or elbow room. So we opted to be relocated with only 10 people at the table at least we could breath and eat comfortably.

The food did not taste fresh, the chicken was over cooked and they did not serve much food. When we tried to talk to our waiter , she got an attitude and walked away. She seemed to have an attitude and rushed us. This was not the usual Benihana “hibachi” experience. The cook did not do all the usual “tricks” that they do. I was very unpleased with our entire occasion of a 21st birthday.

Waitress messed up our order. Would walk away when we asked her something. Accepted my birthday certificate then denied it. My girlfriends plate had to be cooked in the kitchen. Waitress wanted to pack up the plate like she wanted to rush us out. After all this trouble I would think we would get a discount and something free thrown in. The way she returned the Bday certificate seemed spiteful.
