Benihana - Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino Ratings and Reviews

You can look back at the number of reservations we have set through your service, you will find many!! We have never been treated worse anywhere at any time. We went there with a coupon: sent to us by Benni Hana themselves, printed it as per instructions. When we presented it to them, they informed us it was not done properly. The cashier attempted half halfheartedly to assist us but just sitting behind the counter said there was no more she could do as she was to busy?! We have watched this restaurant go from A great place to bring friends and family, to one so heart up for the all mighty DOLLAR that they can't accommodate a faithful 20 year customer and just swallow the $30 on my wives birthday, And keep this faithful customer!
They chose the $ over the customer. I am in sales and they can be sure all that I say about them to all that will listen will NOT BE GOOD. Thank you for your time.

Was embarrassed infront of 6 family members by waiter because my credit cards 2 of them did not work. He told me infront of them that I must have been spending to much. I happen to have very high limits on my cards. Another menber paid and I went to my room and check both cards and they were not onhold it was because your machine did not accept canadian visa or master card chip cards . Your reaturant was the only place in vegas that did not take my card I was in vegas for business with 6 adults and I covered all expenses

Hibachi is one of my favorite types of restaurants and I've been to many dozens. I don't write many reviews but unfortunately this one would be near or at the bottom of the list--even for Benihana. Service was amazingly slow. Over 3.5 hours. Had to beg bus boys to find our waiter. Only brought 1.5 rounds of drinks. Chef was nice. But they were out of many options of both drinks and food. Seemed to be out of or fundamentally against teriyaki sauce. In summary, particularly terrible service, very plain food and shockingly slow.

One of our favorite spots to have dinner for special occasions or when friends and family came to visit. The food is always delicious but the highlight of our visits is always Chef Tony! He is truly amazing, he is funny, keeps everyone at the table involved in what he is cooking, he is friendly and seems to know no strangers. Everyone at our table of 8 had the most wonderful time. The food was delicious, Amy out server was also outstanding. She made sure our drinks were never empty and both Amy and Chef Tony always had a smile, making us feel very welcome!

Greeted promptly and taken via elevator up to dining room. Seated at table with 3 other couples who were celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. Room slightly noisier than usual due to a lot of people celebrating a special occasion. Drinks and food order taken right away. We had a great cook who was funny and very respectful of dietary considerations. Food was made appropriately and had great flavor. This Benihana has a photographer that takes many pictures of celebrants in B/W and Color for you to choose from. That was a great touch. Menu prices slightly higher in Las Vegas but still not bad. This was 3rd visit and will return again. Had great time and loved Japanese atmosphere and kimono dressing by servers and greeters. Also has wonderful Bar and Sushi area.

First of all we had a reservation for 9:30 and were seated within 15 minutes, BUT did not eat until 11 PM terrible service, took my girlfriend out to dinner and spent 73$ and didn't even order any drinks. The food was just Okay have had better at other tepenyaki restaurants. The portions were small as well definitely not worth the money but the inside is nice.

Would rate higher if not for the awful front-of-house service. If you make a 6:30 reservation for 3, and the 3rd member of your party doesn't arrive until 6:39, you should not wait to be seated until 7:17.
The increasingly rude and dismissive responses from all 3 hostesses was unproductive, and uncalled for. Food was good once we finally got it - exhausted and annoyed.

Service was very slow but food was fantastic. This location and another one we have been too changed the yum yum sauce to a watered down "mustard sauce" and it is horrible. I would be a more regular customer if you guys brought this sauce back as it was one of the reasons I came to Benihana and it's not the same without it. But the chef was entertaining and the rest of the experience was good. Our waitress was nice but would forget drink refills, took almost 10 minutes to return to table, forgot to split our check etc. but we will return if you bring the sauce back!!

The yakisoba chicken noodles were terrible he cooked those last they had no flavor just had a pile of noodles sitting on our plate everyone else was done eating. The food was not worth the price very disappointed.

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 ...
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...
