It was bad enough we had to travel so far, when got there we were greeted with a huge amount of guess. We got there 15minute prior to our reservation and was told we had a 2 to 3 hour wait because they are over book.......REALLY! .....so we did what was in our best interest and left this tired and over rated dump......Even the customers that were finish eating looked disappointed.......worst experience ever.......Would never recommend this place to my worst enemy and I know other can relate......

Awful. Didn't even get to sit down. They were running
Late. We left without eating and went to another restaurant. So disappointed. We go here all the time. They were nice enough to give us free appetizers doe next time.

We went there for lunch and Will was our chef. He was excellent, and really enjoyed cooking for our table. He took great care in avoiding too much salt and soy sauce on the food which we appreciated and tasted much better. We've been here many times and he was by far the best. The service was a bit slow but once the chef started cooking we enjoyed ourselves. It's a slow dining experience so be prepared to spend 1 1/2 - 2 hours here. Not recommended for outstanding food but great for kids and a fun group experience.

We have been going to this Benihana for over a decade. Like most restaurants, it has cut the food amount and quality over time, while simultaneously raising prices. The food is still decent, but now you receive fewer shrimp in the appetizer, and a smaller piece of steak for your meal. The chefs are hit-or-miss. Sometimes you get an enthusiastic showman, and other times you get someone who is bored to death and going through the motions of his repetitive tasks. Unfortunately, we got the latter. He seemed pained as he did each step. Benihana is an iconic go-to, but there are many no-name hibachi steakhouses cropping up all over Long Island with better and more food, and cheaper prices. Slowly people will catch on and leave Benihana behind, unless Benihana ups its game considerably.

We had a 6:45 reservation and had to wait until about 7:20 for the cook to come over. Food was good but a bit bland. Rice was hard and overcooked. There was 2 of us and the bill came out to $48 with a $30 off coupon. Definitely not worth $78 for 2 people. The cook was good and entertaining. Probably would not go back.

Food was terrible, chef was underwhelmed with his cooking and basically it was a salty hot mess. I will never set foot in there again. Sad we used to go once a month. They need a new management team and need some better servers. Oversalted and lackluster Terrible experience.

This was one of the most horrible dining experiences ever! It was noisy and dirty/outdated looking. The staff was rude and Unaccommodating. The manager was polite when I asked to speak to her. Small quantities of low quality food. "Steak" is a term used loosely there. Never again!

We went with our family for our father's birthday dinner and never expected to feel like we were in Chuckie Cheese with all of the MANY screaming kids all over the place. It used to be some families and many adults, but now appears to cater mainly tons of families with young kids. Way too loud, too crowded, service bad to mediocre... Definitely not a nice ambiance what so ever. Our chef was nice and food was good, but other service was horrible. We had a reservation and waited entirely too long and was not impressed with response from front desk. Not very organized reservations.

This is a stable restaurant with consistently good food and service. My granddaughter has some food allergies and the staff at this restaurant takes care to prepare her food separately. The kids always enjoy the chefs' show and it never seems to get tired.

Food was very good, but not sure I would go back too soon due to noise level.

I used to go to eat at Benihana for years and it has been awhile. We were celebrating my daughter and made reservations for 8. I will say the chef was OK. The food was ok. He did not interact well with the kids. He was distracted. We did not get our dessert. We were not given refills of our drinks. The server was not attentive.

We will not be returning.

The food was delicious. It is not the best place to go if you were looking for a quiet conversation, as the restaurant is loud and the seating difficult for a large group. For my party of three, we were all able to talk comfortably but a larger group would certainly have some trouble. This is not the fault of the restaurant itself, but more just the nature of the restaurant. Any hibachi place would likely present the same problem.

This was a go away dinner for my grandson for his first year at college. We wanted it to be extra special. The soup, vegetables and fried rice were good. I actually ordered the spicy rice and enjoyed it. The chicken teriyaki was rubbery. My grandchildren and I did not like the texture at all. My husband said the shrimp were okay but nothing to brag about. Considering what we paid for four people I didn't feel it was worth it.

I think there's been a big drop in the quality since Benihana's left private ownership. The chef just wasn't on point (and I've been to other Benihana's before when Chef's have made mistake), but our guy seemed to be out of practice. But it was for kids anyway, I think they enjoyed it for the most part - I think quality has just diminished.

We went to celebrate my daughter's elementary school graduation. Our food and our chef or awesome. The host/hostess staff was very disorganized. They were answering the telephone instead of seating people and the lobby and waiting area became crowded and chaotic. Still I really like this place. It's a nice way to celebrate with a group.
