We enjoyed ourselves overall. We did have to wait a little even though we had a reservation.
Private room started 20 minutes late, another 15 minutes to get drinks, food was overcooked. Big disappointment.
Nice setting and decent food. The restaurant was exceedingly noisy and we had to shout to have a conversation at our table. Very good service.
Some patrons were not in adherence to the dress code. Many women were dressed skimpily.
The prices jumped, but they’ve restored fried rice as included with lunch, so it’s not as bad as it was a few months ago. Our chef remembered us— that feeling of belonging is what we all want now. It was a perfect meal.
Benihana made for a great birthday outing! We were three parties at one table, all with a chair in between our parties. The noise from surrounding tables was a bit loud (I think they were doing shots), but it was still an incredible experience. The food was delicious as always, and the staff was accommodating to our allergy needs. Definitely will return!
I didnt think that because of covid that they was going to be taking anything from the guest especially if they couldn't give us a menu .. so when I show my daughter birthday meal coupon for her cup I was told no that I had to print it out , kinda made my daughter sad but whatever I guess . Food has really fell off but our waiter was very nice .. the chef didn't really have much enthusiasm maybe he was tired . Bathrooms were so gross and disgusting I had to hold myself Till I went home .
Always fun for our kids and lots of food!! You never leave hungry.
Dirty, smelt bad, wait for tables despite a reservation, bathrooms disgraceful.
Table was dirty staff was not accommodating . The facility has no air conditioning . The tables were to close to each other so you were basically rubbing shoulders with the next family from the other hibachi table . Definitely would not recommend how ever the Benihana’s in wood bridge has a beautiful facility
Well NYC is open at 100 percent which means they are cramming multiple parties at the tables. We had 10 total people and a space for 8. From three different parties. This place I would skip.
Had a great time celebrating my friend's birthday. Great Service.
Reservation was not private, nobody told me about to share the table, and my table was shared. The food was good but I didn’t receive the food like I ordered. All tables are really near each one.
tasty food and chef was super nice, cooked some delicious food and put on a great show for us!
Great dinner and service
All restaurants are having staff shortages right now. The good ones set customers expectations and prioritize those with reservations over walk-ins.
Then there are ones that approach their business like Benihana. Before the pandemic, this was one of my favorite quirky go-to places. I hope they get their act together.
It was excellent!!!!
Overall, I was very displeased during my second experience at this restaurant and it was not what I anticipated. However, it was slightly overcrowded, the dining area was exceptionally tight due to the way the business positioned the chairs and the food could have been more fresher (the rice was hard). In addition to that, it was extremely loud (especially the guests). Generally speaking, the Benihana located on 47 West 56th Street, honestly needs a great deal of organization (collectively)… Furthermore, my reservation for a party of 3 was reserved for 10pm and I wasn’t seated at a table until 11pm, which is the time they close. All in all, unfortunately, it was not what I was looking forward to.
Benihana is a covid super-spreader with no regard for cdc standards. They packed 8-9 people at a table with barely a. Foot of distance. No one was wearing masks in the waiting area. When we were seated no one was wearing a mask. We asked it everyone was vaccinated and 2 people said no. No one had checked or cared. It was also 100 degrees. Needless to say we left.
Absolutely horrified at he the blatant disregard for public safety
No AC in a super hot room and many bottles of wine listed not available
Our experience was mediocre. The meat and vegetables were ok but the hibachi noodle dishes were extremely sweet and almost inedible. It also took a long time after we were seated for our hibachi chef to come out. Despite there being a lot of food, I did not feel the price was justified.
Great atmosphere and food and staff. Highly recommend.
I usually try to go to Benihana's when I'm in town. I just love their food. It is a great restaurant to go to. It is a little pricey, but so worth the cost. Worth trying if you've never been.
You really want to go here or you are taking someone who wants to come here. It is very noisy.
Fun place for bday celebration , good food fun staff
Because of the social distancing We were surprised to be seated with 4 strangers . Fortunately 2 of them left and we were able to spread out safely. The bar service took a very long time to revert that they were missing an ingredient. Consequently our drinks arrived half-way through the meal. However the chef and waitress were very nice and efficient. The noise level and the coolness of the room could be împroved. Thank you.
I went for my birthday first time.I have go back I like the food
We were seated next to the grill vent/fan-way way too noisy. Service was spotty and the hibachi “show” by the chef was exceedingly mediocre!
Our friend rice was overcooked and stone hard. They changed sauces. The restaurant was crazy hot even before they started cooking. We were packed at the table like sardines.
Food was great. Service was slow for even a refill on a soft drink
We got together with a group of 10 friends and it was a perfect night. Retro, slightly cheesy and fun.
It was a terrible experience. I will never go back to this location.
My chef DANIEL refused to listen to any of our request to add seasoning to our foods which made it come out HORRIBLE on top of that he served us raw food he was so busy trying to rush cooking that it wasn’t done at all. The manager ended up taking everything off the bill and apologized for the chefs actions. That was the worst time I’ve ever had there. Anytime has ALWAYS been a good experience just not this day. I NEVER want to go back again honestly
Wonderful Experience... but the greeting at the door was questionable. I presented my Chef's Table coupon for my Twins' Bday on my phone but was rudely told that I had to print it out w/o knowing where to do so but someone else stepped in & told me where to go. Not everyone has access to a printer so I believe that's pretty ridiculous when the barcode is on your phone. Personally, it irritated me that the Only BW there was Nasty to Everyone(of color) If you asked her Anything she'll give 1 word & put her head down as if you were no longer there to her. SMH But other than being greeted by an Azzhole! IT WAS AWESOME! The chef was great. Server was amazing. I would dine again but I honestly would ask if that rude lady was working because she's truly a Vibe killer(lol)
Question: WHY IS SHE AT YOUR FRONT DOOR???? She has ZERO customer service skills & I've owned 4 businesses. Let the others do the job because they were kind. She is Far from it. Even when we returned she was rude & stood us to the side for 25 mins w/o telling us anything while others when ahead. It upset my kids on their Bday & it was our 1st time! I'm sure I'm NOT the only one but I will be calling ahead to make sure my next visit will be w/o her negative presence. But Thank You for the Wonderfulness overall! Rocky start, Great ending
i went there with me and my family , and the air condioner wasnt working, imagine being in a restaurant in which
Place had no AC elevator was dirty always late had to wait
40 min after reservation disgraceful I rushed out due to NO AC!
El aire estaba dañado y el calor estaba insoportable pero después todo lo demás excelente
Amazing food, but it took 30 minutes to get a chef at our table, had to send several dirty dishes back from the place setting.
Not a great experience. We were seated in a very small room that was loud with mechanical noises and was very hot. Extremely slow service. I’ve been to a few Benihana locations - but this one was very disappointing.
Made reservation for 7pm - we arrived at 7:15 and had to wait until 7:50 to be seated. By 8:30, the chef had not arrived to the table and we decided to leave. Staff were entirely unapologetic (nearly rude to begin with) and offered no explanation.
Will not be returning; one of my worst experiences at a restaurant.
