Benihana - Westbury Ratings and Reviews

We've dined in many Benihana restaurants in various states. This was among the top because our family was treated exceptionally well by the waitress and we all (seniors, middle-aged, children alike) felt like special customers. The food was perfectly prepared, very tasty, and enough to feed double our number. We'll return soon.

Hostess called our name to be seated and then disappeared. When we got to table waitress immediately came to get drink order which never gave you time to look over drink menu or decide. Felt very rushed as they brought soup and salad out at once. Never told us it would be extra for fried rice and waitress only check on us once after taking our order. Very disappointing as it is my sons favorite place to go to celebrate his birthday.

I don't know whether it's just this location or Benihanas in general, but it just seems like no one there cares...about anything. While the food was good, the floor was dirty, soiled paper receipts laid on server stations and floors the whole time we were there, the chef (who barely spoke a lick of English) went through the motions with no seeming interest whatsoever (even losing the spatula at one point and sending it within 3 inches of my daughter), they had no Japanese beers (which I mention because I saw it as lazy inventory control and ordering), the server who came by twice the whole time took a picture of our family and cut off one of my kids' faces, etc., etc., etc. If you're not going to care, Benihana, neither am I. I think we're done.

Six guests in our party. Three ordered salmon which was undercooked. One had filet mignon and two had a seafood combo; their meal was cooked fine and tasted very good. A little noisy but very entertaining. Our server was very good. Would definitely return!

Been going for a while. Last two timeseasons were just average. But this time was great got Santos as a cook. Great showmanship skills personality and cook. Will say first time ever did I see a cook ask every person individualy if they were happy and needed anything special or extra after he was done cooking. Service was stepped up as well. Wonder if new management took over.

The servers were not very hospitable. They were constantly reaching over the plates while we were attempting to eat. The soup was cold, and had a hair in it. The overall area was dirty and not very well kept. I was disappointed and I will not return.

I will never go back to this restaurant. Last time we went they were 2 hours behind reservation times. So we left. This time we figured maybe it was a fluke let's try it. Yea not so much. An hour past reservation time. Manager couldn't care less. Service was terrible. Overcharged on two items. Very sneaky. Beware!!!

We had a 6:00 reservation and did not get seated till 6:45 and then when we were seated they squeezed an extra chair to the table making it very uncomfortable. I was very disappointed with the way Benihana controlled the busy dinner seating. Took a long time to get drinks and salad. They also turned off the griddle and when the chef arrived had to wait for thegriddle to heat up before he could start cooking. Not a good night at Benihana.

Hoped for a nicw dinner for our group. One persons noodles were left on top corner of grill till last and were dried out. Other meals caused 2 of the people to spend the entire evening and night in the bathroom with unpleasantries . Have eaten at different hibachi restaurants with good experiences. this one however was one to forget.

The soup was cold. Sent it back and the server brought it back still cold and our food was burnt, and we had to wait approximately 10 minutes to get the check. We finally told a manager and he told the waitress we were waiting for the it. If she wasn't standing right next to me while I was signing the credit card slip, her tip would have been a lot smaller. I felt very uncomfortable with her standing right there. Last time I go to this particular Benihanas. I will continue to patron the one in Manhasset.

Benihana - Westbury was an amazing experience. Santos was one of the best Teppanyaki chefs I have ever seen and his food was stellar. The incredible cocktail menu selections pair perfectly with the dishes. Good stuff Benihana, we will be back VERY soon!

Benihana staff does not sit the table until all guests that have reserved that time have arrived. Nonetheless, once this occurs the seating is quick and the whole process begins. The chefs are entertaining. The food is good but the wait staff seem rushed. There were no mistakes but I happen to order steak which was served second to last. No big deal but five minutes after I was served the guests which were served first began to pay and leave. Needless to say because I was distracted by the wait staff coming around and collecting their dues I began to feel rushed. Ultimately, I had a great time and enjoyed both my food and the ambiance but don't necessarily enjoy eating on what I felt to be a time limit. Thanks!

As always food was excellent. Our Chef put on a great show. Our waitress was ok. I had to ask for water 4 times before she brought it. I am disappointed that they have discontinued Strawberry ice cream but the sherbet was great.
