Maybe the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. Reservation was for 8:45 showed up early. Wasn’t seated until roughly 10pm. Didn’t see even a glass of water until 10:15. Was there with 4 kids and 4 adults. Kids literally feel asleep at the table waiting for food. We didn’t eat until almost 11:30pm. Terrible service, terrible staff except for the chef who was great. Even he was frustrated cause he had to leave the table to go get bowls to put fried rice in. Overall terrible place and will not be returning ever. Try another one cause this one sucks!

All was great, just that it took a bit too long for food service to begin.

I scheduled a reservation for 7 and arrived early, but waited over an hour and wasn’t seated until 8. I was a little cranky at that point.

Otherwise, the food was fantastic and it was super fun, like hibachi always is.

I had reservation for 715 but I had to wait 30 mins for table. NOT COOL. They were not all there. Prices are high and the chef did not do anything cool as a performance. Drinks and food was tasty.

Waited over a half an hour past our reservation time. Kept asking when we were going to be seated and they kept telling us we were next. But once we were seated, food and service was wonderful.

The chef was not friendly. We ordered chicken fried rice and he gave our chicken fried rice to another couple that ordered white rice, and just gave us the left over plain fried . He also did not give me the appetizer that was included in my meal. He told me I do not get the appetizer and gave it to another couple on the table (which was extra for them). Not sure if he just didn’t know what he was doing or if he did it on purpose. Either way it’s not good, when you don’t get what you paid for. The food was just ok.

Waitress disappeared after taking orders so there were no refills on drinks. Wife order mixed drink which was very poorly mixed. At the end of the night my bill was mixed up with another party and had to request it be corrected.

Chances of visiting this benihana again very poor.

Went there for a special occasion, my sons 16th Birthday ( he requested that we go there). Server was horrible ( I don’t think he wanted to be there) chef was very quiet. No entertainment like we are used to. I will never go there again. Ruined what was supposed to be great.

Made us wait even tho we had a reservation. After we were seated we had to continue to wait for a waiter and the wait even longer for the chef. It was cold and uncomfortable. Inconsiderate staff. The waitress insisted that it was someone's birthday and that we wait for her to get the camera and iceceam to boast her tip even though she wasn't the best. Poor experience

Listen for years I liked BHH. but of late the price of taking a family out is really too expensive. there is not need to add on every single thing. Life in NYC is oppressive enonough financially, why can't you maintain a fairer priced menu.

My party consisted of three people. We had arrived a few minutes early, as our reservation was for 9pm. We had been told it would be a few minutes, which I understood was going to be more than a few minutes since the place was packed, but we waited for MORE THAN AN HOUR to be seated. We were the last party left in the lobby to be seated. People that had arrived AFTER us with later reservations and MORE PEOPLE were seated BEFORE us. I didn’t think that was too fair. When we finally got seated after waiting, the experience was great. Danilo is amazing at his job and made it fun. The only thing I wasn’t happy about was that we were seating at 10 and didn’t start until almost 10:45, getting our food and staring to eat at 11 PM. It felt rushed towards the end, and by the time we left it had already hit 12 AM. I was disappointed at the amount of time wasted waiting and how it was a bit of a rushed experience.

Even with an 8:00pm reservation, we waited for 2 hours and decided to leave because there was no indication that we were getting any closer to being seated. It was now 9:45pm, extremely overbooked... not sure why there is a reservation option here when they accept every single walk in. Go to Benihana in the city, its better and more organized with reservations!
