Soup and salad brought out at same time, felt very rushed and steak was not cooked to our specification. Not impressed. Will not go back unless maybe with big group for a party.

My husband and I eat at Benihana’s at least twice a year and enjoy their birthday program. As we entered the restaurant, four people passed me without a mask on. I looked over at the bar and noticed two patrons (not eating or drinking) and not wearing masks. I asked the host if the had a mandatory mask protocol and his answer was yes. I asked him to address the two unmasked people at the bar and he proceeded to do another task first. He then went over to a gentleman, that appeared to be a manager. The manager approached the two people at the bar. They put their masks on, begrudgingly, and complained to each other about the inconvenience(they were not there together) and then the female had a plate of food served to her and began to eat, while the other male, wore his mask under his nose. We were seated w another couple and social distanced, but then another female employee told me that she may be seating two more at our table, to which I responded, no to. Had she sat more, there was no room for social distancing. The other couple at our table got up(for whatever reason, I didn’t care)and went to sit at a table where the unmasked man from the bar was seated. We waited at least 15 mins before a server came to our table. The chef was wonderful, always and the food was delicious. My main concern was that I didn’t feel safe at this establishment and I find it so appalling that during the current state of the pandemic, there are arrogant patrons, who find it an inconvenience to wear a mask in an establishment that have these protocols in place. If you can’t follow the rules, stay home! Oh and as we were leaving and passed the unmasked male, I used the hand sanitizer and he began to laugh, so I pumped more out.

We love this place! The food is cooked right before your eyes and is so delicious. The servers are always polite and sweet and nice. They let you know that they value your business. And they are handling the Covid procedures very well with social distancing, masking and hand sanitizer readily available. Love the food, service and safety precautions.

Same cooking experience, food quality and value. Found i needed to more patient than usual... reservation for 7:30 pm, we sat down around 7:45 pm and chef arrived in the cooking booth at 8:30 pm. That was a longer wait than normal. Service and food was good as usual.

Overall it was a fair experience. I've visited Westheimer several times; and this location many times before; but I must say this time was one of the worst experience. Thanks to my family's presence; it was made to feel special in spite of the dissapointed experience. To add insult to injury, my family spent over 200 and some odd dollars and the birthday $30 certificate wasn't even taken off. Maybe I should have followed my family's advice and went to Shakura in Pearland.

Our dinning experience was extremely slow.
Drinks came with five to ten minutes of sitting which is fine, but almost forty minutes to receive our salads. The food prep came out with our chef over an hour into sitting. Two in a half hours from start to finish. I was disappointed seeing other tables sit and leave in less time. Also when packing go to in your paper bags, tell your staff not to set these on the oiled grill. Transferred oil to the bag which transfers oil to car leather seats or cloth.

The service was a bit slow but the food was excellent. My only real complaint was when it came to social distancing. At our table we were fairly distanced from the other couple who was seated with us but the way the tables are configured meant there was definitely less than 6 ft between us and the table across from ours on both sides. We stayed the course but not sure we feel comfortable going back for now.
