My family and I have dined at Benihana's for more than 20 years. This was a terrible experience. Service very poor. Server did not ask to order appetizers, fried rice, dessert, no Birthday Song or picture (camera broken) We won't go back to that location. Very good restaurant when owned by Hilton.

We didn't get any rice . Our table !! We Had to ask , we didn't get any dipping sauces . Knew food Es bland . Asked for more soy sauce than looked around every one else had little bowls with the "homemade dipping sauce's " on their tables . Plan dry experience. I'll stick to Ron of Japan and Kobe's and chi tung for my hibachi grill

Severely disappointed. This is second time I've visited a Benihana and will be my last. I've enjoyed much better food and ambience at over half the cost at many other Japanese Hibachi or Teppanyaki establishments. While the decor was nice and the support staff friendly and efficient, the main reason to visit such a place is the food and show put on by the "chef". Both of these areas were lacking. The problem with the food was flavor, a lack of it. I could tell I was chewing filet mignon only by texture, that's pretty bad when I'm comparing it to shrimp and scallops which I have to use texture to differentiate as well. And waving the salt shaker over the cooktop does not constitute seasoning the food. It wouldn't have been so bad if had used more than a drop of soy sauce but you could have gotten more soy out of a plastic packet than he used on ANY of the entrees. The show? What show? I'm in Vegas at the original Benihana, I'm gonna see a show, right? Umm, no. Bang the spatula 3 times, light the onion volcano (no sparkles or lava) and flip 1 shrimp tail into your hat. Right. That's all folks!

We were the first 2 people seated at the table and asked for water and hot tea. Waited and waited, another group of 8 or 9 were seated on our table and they received their drinks. We had to ask for drinks again. Also we ordered white rice with our meal. It never came until we were finished eating and the cook noticed that we had no rice. We didn't need it anymore since we had already eaten. In both occasions we were told by the waitress "I'm sorry".
Almost typical for Las Vegas. The customer service goes down if the restaurant has good business.
Very sad to us since we really liked it in the past.

We were a party of three, with a 7:00 reservation time, we were seated as promptly at 7:00
the server explained the menu and took our order, we had to wait our turn for a chef , but the soup and salad came out promptly. The one suggestion I have is that they have more than one salad dressing. Once our chef arrived everything went great and the meal was delicious.(The other patrons at our table was great company you would have thought we make reservation as a group. Except for the salad dressing everything was great.

I enjoyed my experience. The chef was awesome. He was friendly and very funny. The environment was nice. The only issue I had was the waitress. She was not friendly at all and when we tried to give our order she would actually start talking to the other group at the table and we had to repeat the order numerous times and she got most of it wrong.

Overall the meal was very good. Through the years there have been subtle changes to their product. I think their cutting a few corners to make a bit more profit. For example, the Ginger salad dressing used to be smooth and creamy. Now it is thick and almost chunky. The flavor is nearly the same but seems somewhat altered because of the apparent changes to the dressing. The same goes for the ginger and mustard sauces provided for dipping. As for presentation the idea is clear, there is a hot grill, your plate sits on the edge of said grill. Next, between the plate and you are two small dishes which hold ginger sauce and mustard sauce. Then, between the sauce dishes and your face you have a lovely bowel of rice which acts as a drip pan for sauces coming off your tender morsels of meat, fish or veggie. The rice no longer shows up with your entree, but much later in the meal. The result is often a very messy table top for the user. The restaurants benefit is that most people finish their meals before the rice arrives and, therefore, few people now ask for"seconds" on the rice. Small details to be sure. But taken collectively they detract from what used to be an outstanding dining experience and make it just a little less special.

Food was really good. Our cook was fun. But for me and my wife not a place for an anniversary dinner. Terrible! They pack you in like sardines with others so needless to say we will not return for anniversary dinner. If all your family joining you sure. Maybe.

Food was fine but expensive for what you received. Fried rice was an extra $8 a person for a small bowl on top of Hibachi dinner price. Really should be included. Lemonade was $7.
Chef was great and put in a good show. He had good interaction with the table.
Waitress was working 3 tables and was very slow with getting items out timely.
Overall it was fine but not a place I'd rush back to.

The meals were considerably more expensive than anyother Benihana I have been too. We went for me and my wife's birthday. We figured it would be fun to do it in Vegas rather than where we normally do it at the Encino location. We were very disappointed with not only the service but the quality of the food. We have a collection of Birthday pictures for as long as we have been together and the pictures they took at this location they tried to charge an extra fee. I am very disappointed in this experience and hate to say that this will more than likely end the tradition of celebrating our birthdays with Benihana in the future.

We were in Las vegas for 2 weeks, and this was the highlight of the vacation; great food, chef was funny and talented, food delicious. Our first time at a restaurant like this, next time I am in Vegas I will go back.
My 7 year old daughter was engrossed in the theatre of it all as well, whenever I think of Benihana; I cannot control my smile...

I've been to Benihana's a few times. I must say, although our chef was comedic and friendly, the overall experience did not measure up. Once seated, we had to wait upwards 15 minutes to have our orders taken. Then another 15-20 minutes before our chef even came out to us. Twice our chef was interrupted because the waitress had to pass by. There was simply not enough passing room between our table and the next. I could easily see into their plates and hear their conversations. I ordered the Hibachi chicken. It was a bit on the dry side. Otherwise my appetizers and chicken fired rice was good. I would say the food is a bit overpriced as they charged $8 to add fried rice to your meal. Towards the end of dinner, a guy at our table wanted his rice fried, no added ingredients. Our chef told him simply putting the rice on the grill would cost the same $8. You could see the irritation on the man's face but the chef stood his ground. I had high hopes for this location since it is fairly new and located in Vegas but it did not live up to the hype.

Our waitress Lam sucked and was very rude & was a bit pushy. wE had a party of 8, so she had automatic gratuity, and she was overwhelmed by all of the orders along with the other tables orders. My bday dinner was not as fun as it had been in the previous years there.

Haven't been to Benihana in years. Took my son and family for his birthay. Because we were local the cook's jokes didn't pertain to us but the other couple at the table from LA. The cook was low key and did not put on of a show for us. The food was very buttery - which was good, but if you're not used to that much butter beware. Husband and I had gastric interludes and evacuation the next day.
Everything was ok until the very end when the bus boy came in to take the dishes, he said things like, give me that, and took dishes and grazed people with them.

We had such a fun time. I'd highly recommend the $40 blue ocean cocktail bowl for two - lasted the entire meal and tasted delicious. Instead of two cocktails each, this was a great purchase.
Meal came with salad, soup, and a shrimp appetizer. He had the Benihana Trio, which was too much to finish with everything else they gave us. I had the Filet with Scallops, which was just right and tasted fantastic.
The group dining wasn't intrusive or disruptive; it was actually kinda nice even for the less social of us. The entertainment was lots of fun and comical. What a great visit!

We've been to this restaurant a number of times and always found it comfortable. This time, it was so hot, I could not enjoy my food. The manager said the air conditioning could not be adjusted. I asked for ice and a napkin to wrap it in to keep on my neck so I wouldn't faint. I won't be going back any time soon.
