Benihana - Westbury Ratings and Reviews

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.

I was extremly disappointed with my experience this time. Waited an 1hr to seated. Ok it was saturday nite. Waited 10 mins to order drinks. 30 mins later was told my drink was not on tap. 35 mins later drinks. No appetizers. 40 mins after complaining to manager the appetizers show up. 1hr into the ordeal they finally start cooking the food. Fried rice was over cooked, eggs in rice over cooked, my medium stake was over cooked and on and on. Was not happy. Manager gave 20% off bill. Over crowded on weekends. Not worth the hassel or money.

Awesome experience! Food, drinks and service was wonderful. I had a great birthday dinner. All of my guest had an amazing time as well. I will definitely come back and I will tell all of my friends and family about this place.

This use to be a good restaurant. It now looks "tired" . We sat for 15 minutes ,with waiters standing around, before the drink order was taken. That happened only after I complained to management. The place seems as if it is run to accommodate the staff and turnover, rather than the diners.

my chicken was overcooked & like rubber....the vanilla ice cream was freezer burned.....& we never received the hot green tea that comes with the meal, even after I requested it.....also a language barrier with server...very difficult to understand her level of english & not a fan of not being able to get all of my dinner entree served at once!

Usually this place is great. This time we waited an extra 15 mins for a table, but that happens. After being seated we sat for 25mins with no service at all, the entire table to be clear. It would have been longer had I not gotten up and talked to one of the managers. After I spoke with them we waited 10 add'l mins. We saw the waitress arguing with one another as to who had more tables.
To add to it we all received very small portions of our main entrees.
We've eaten at this restaurant on at least 30 other occasion , this was our first problem .
Nothing was offered to make up for any of the issues.
Hopefully it's not a trend.
