I've been to others in the chain but not in quite a few years. We went for my son's 4th birthday and while the food was good, we couldn't help but feel like we were in an assembly line and being pushed to rush through our meal. We were ready to go, but then were left waiting for a while for the dessert and check which I would think they would be right on top of since they were clearing the table while we were still eating. The table next to us had a much more engaging cook, while ours was sweet, he didn't seem to do all the tricks others do. It didn't help that the family who sat with us had three kids all looking at screens the entire time, which we found rude to the cook. It would have been nice to have our waters refilled at least once as well. It was nice they took a birthday photo and printed it for us, but I wish they had taken one where at least one out of four of us was looking and smiling at the camera.

Took my friend to Benihana for her birthday. She and her daughter loved the food.
It was a special treat for my best friend.

Place was overbooked. They should really pay attention to detail when arranging the placing of customers. The waitress was very pushy and not inviting at all. The food will always be good hence it solely depends on the chef making it. However the cuisine is always the same. My partner and I left and ended up eating at the one in Westbury and it was AMAZING compared to the 2 stars I’m giving this location

Benihanna is always a great experience. Awesome place to have dinner with a big group of friends or family. The experience of the chef cooking your meal in front of you is always fun. The food is always great.

Unfortunately, this time around we did not enjoy Benihana’s. Although it was not very busy, the service was not very good. It’s a very commercial restaurant and we go around 3 times a year to entertain the kids. They enjoy watching the cook prepare the food but this time around the experience was not fun. The food was minimal and the prices are too high.

99% of the time Benihana’s is *star service. But on this trip which was Christmas Day was a disappointment. Eating Dinner to the sounds of fire alarms was disappointing. And to hear it’s an ongoing issue just exasperates the problem. The food was fair at best and our chef was trying to hard and we all new it. Ohhhhhhh volcano and ho ho ho was annoying. We just figured he was tired and wanted to give a better service. And our meal was entered wrong and had to be refuted. We love love Benihana’s and. Can’t wait to give this location another chance!

First time visiting this location and I like it much better than the Westbury location which gets extremely crowded, stuffy and the service is subpar. This Manhasset location is great and has a bigger area for non-hibachi diners. The wait staff is very attentive and polite and, as always, the food was great.

My family has always loved going to Benihana for a special treat, however, we've been disappointed the past few times. The tableside cooks look bored, are not at all engaging. Our cook this past visit looked half asleep. They need to perk up a little. Food is touch and go, again, depends on the cook. Some underseason the food, under or over cook meats, etc. I think it's time to start looking for new, more exciting hibachi places.

My sister ordered hibatchi steak, as did 4 others at the table, apparently the chef overlooked her order; Asked people who ordered steak how they want the meat cooked, but her. When all the steak was apportioned, there was one left, hers . . . she had wanted her's rare, but being the last steak it was more or less cooked well; the chef instead of getting another steak, served it anyway. It took several mins of protest that the steak was not rare, before the chef realized that it was HIS mistake in overlooking this order, and should not have served it not "cooked to perfection." The steak was replaced, but it should not have taken a big deal to get it done. Most other restaurants, whether valued or expensive would have noted that the steak was NOT rare, and would have replaced it immediately. This chef did not even apologize for the oversight, I thought, and after a while replaced it grudgingly. I gave service a 4-star because of the wait staff, the chef notwithstanding. I dine here approx three or four times year, for several years now, and not have had a bad experience here but this one time.

We go to Benihana’s for my son’s birthday each year with the whole family. At first service seemed very rushed two servers asked us if we were ready to order food literally as we were given menus. But the pace got better as dinner went along. I ordered a soft shell crab appetizer for before my hibachi which was served when the hibachi chef was finished cooking. At that point I assumed the server hadn’t heard me order it but it was still good so I didn’t mind that much. I also had given the hostess my card to pay for the meal without my table knowing, and was initially very confused when I was handed a receipt for a large gift card and then a bunch more gift cards, but I realized they gave me a promo by using a gift card instead of just swiping for the bill so now we have a gift card towards our next meal just because....that was nice of them to do. Overall a nice experience and we will continue our birthday tradition next year.

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......

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.
