Benihana - Houston Ratings and Reviews
We always enjoy dining at the Westheimer ...
We always enjoy dining at the Westheimer Benihana in Houston, but this time was the best ever! Good service, excellent sushi, great chef, good company at the table. The restauant was busy with special occasion celebrations at almost every table and the excitement created an energetic and fun ambiance. We were seated almost immediately with our Open Table reservation, and of course the staff took photos because we were celebrating a birthday. Looking forward to our next visit!

Brought my daughter and four of her friends here for a 10th birthday party. SOOOO glad we had the reservation, otherwise the wait would have be tough with a lively bunch of girls. I did specify in the reservation this was for a 10-year-old birthday party. We had a fabulous waitress. You know she is used to dealing with kids when she brings a pitcher of shirley temples to refill the drinks! We also had some picky eaters in the group; the waitress was very friendly dealing with order changes. Of course the whole experience is watching the food prep and cooking, and it did not disappoint.

The restaurant was extremely hot!!!!! I had a party of 8, for my Daugther's and my Bday. My daughter just had a baby, 5 months old and got married recently. The baby was very uncomfortable because it was hot. My guest were as well! Topped with the hot stove the climate was unbearable. But we stayed. We saw at least 2 groups of people leaving because of the discomfort of the heat. I paid the tab, it was approximately $300.00, but I would have thought they would had at least given us a percent discount or given my guests ice cream. Ice cream would have cooled them off a little? That's my opinion. I go to Benihana's all the time. This was the worst.

We have made it a tradition to go to Benihana's for family and friends birthday dinners for years. The food is always consistently good. The service (especially the cooks) occasionally varies based on location. Our favorite location is the west-side (Westheimer) restaurant, followed by downtown and then The Woodlands.

We always celebrate our grandchildren's birthdays and special holidays at Benihana. Because of that, we have been there probably about 200 times. This time was our very favorite ever! Our chef, John, really was outstanding! He was an entertainer, as well an excellent chef. He engaged the grandkids, told fun stories, sang "Happy Birthday" to our granddaughter, and was just amazing!!!! The food and wait staff was just as outstanding as always!

Felt like I didn't get my monies worth! For what I paid the service or food wasn't great! the staff is rushing and rude! Also charging for fried rice is rediculous, its also half the show! I won't again waste my time driving to or eating here. Atami where I live is beyond extraordinary!

This restaurant has been here for such a long time that you can smell the musty odor in the air as soon as you enter the door. Food is mediocre, the service and chef range from 1-10 depends on how you have that day, so it's inconsistent. Overall, one visit every few years to see how restaurant aged through might be fun.
Food and service were great. What ruine ...
Food and service were great. What ruined the evening was lack of air conditioning. When it is 95 degrees outside, you do not want 85 inside. Our whole party of 8 were sweating like pigs. Not what we wanted for a birthday party. Very unpleasureable.
