So, my husband and I decided to do something out of the ordinary on valentine/birthday, so we went here for the hibatchi experience. I would recommend this place to a family of at least 8 people or you will be sitting with strangers. We were a bit in comfortable at first that we were sitting at the table WTH complete strangers, after about an hour, we were all laughing out lol.There food is average...
basic, grilled chicken, shrimps and lobster. There super bowl drink was amazing. My husband and I couldn't finish it. Your basically paying for the hibatchi experience. Prices are pretty steep, and are chef was amazing and full of humor. That's another big plus.

I read a few bad reviews but I’m glad they didn’t deter me. The place is right by public transportation and easy to get to. My chef was tired so the tricks were lackluster. The food is good. Major tip expect to smell like food for the rest of the night. Will go back again in the future. This was the Manhattan location. Lastly expect to spend a serious dollar especially if you’re on a date.

Horrible! Chef used same spatula on raw chicken then to serve the rice. Everything was too salty and the shirmp was dirty. The menu downstairs in the lobby is half the price of what we where offered. Never again. Bathroom was dirty too.

The food was great but it was quite hectic as firemen were there because of an alarm & they forgot about something we ordered.

I usually love Benihana. I booked a table for a birthday party and had 10 boys with me. When we showed up they told me that they were running 30 minutes behind. I had to text and email all the parents to change the pick up time. Then i had to wait outside in the cold with 10 boys for a half hour.
