The chef, Ngoc was phenomenal but the waitress was rude, not attentive and somewhat rude. If she wasn't involved, the overall experience would have been a 5. The hostess and restaurant manager were extremely welcoming.

I haven't been to Benihana's in years, so it was nice to come back after a while. We had a very nice meal here, good experience. The only thing that was a little shocking, was my boyfriend changed his order from steamed rice to fried rice before ANY food was out, and the waitress wouldn't let him change it. Other than that, everything was nice.

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!
