Great Date Night

We love this little place for date night, awesome wine, too. Food is fresh and they cater to gluten-free. Good service. Cozy and friendly. Easy parking across the street, and can walk the park after dinner. So pretty there with the water view right across the street.

Not that there's a lot of competition, but this is the best sushi in the area by far. Service is good and prompt. The atmosphere is very nice and the price is good. If you get the boat for 2, make sure you have 4 people because it is a LOT of food

This is a neighborhood sushi / Japanese place -- the lunch menus are good and reasonably priced. Not many people for lunch

Really cold service, unfriendly waitress, sushi bar is not flexible at all (will not make whatever sushi you want despite having all ingredients available - at least according to the nasty waitress), huff and puff at you if you are taking too long to order (rush you out), is over-crowded in a tiny space, leave dirty dishes out in the...

I have been to Benkei for both lunch and dinner. Both meals were excellent. Very fresh sushi. My husband, who is not an adventurous eater, found several things on the menu that he liked. We will definitely return.

The last few times I've been here my dining mates and I were underwhelmed. They used to be amazing...don't know what happened

We've been going to Benkei for many years, and never had a complaint. It's very sad, & unfortunate, that lately both service and quality has declined. This past weekend, the service seemed totally off, people were getting up to ask for their dishes. If it were just a service issue i probably would not have even cared, but the sushi... More

it was inconsistent in the beginning...but over the last 2 years I haven't had a bad meal! The fish is always fresh. Love the "beginning noodles" and if you aren't in the mood for raw, their cooked food is just as good

Tasty affordable sushi in a nice small setting, not a sushi warehouse like so many others. This is the perfect start to a night out in Northport. The staff is friendly and always smiling. There is always a good special on the wall and we have yet to get something we haven't liked.
