“Good for Birthday Celebrations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Benihana - good for a birthday celebration. Go to their webpage and sign up for the Chef's Club and you'll get a $30 gift cert for your birthday dinner. At the end of dinner, they sing Happy Birthday in English and Japanese and give you a sundae and take your picture - very memorable evening. Food was good! Show was good!

“Great Family Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Our 9 year old son LOVED this place. Our chef was so entertaining and really made the evening. The food was plentiful and cooked to order, so we all got exactly what we wanted. If you've never been, it's worth a go just for the experience of having your food cooked right in front of you. We had to share our table with 4 rather cynical native New Yorkers, but that aside we had a great night.

“Our Benihana NYC experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Took my wife and 16 year old son here on a Tuesday night and found although the bar area was quite nice the restaurant upstairs was looking tired and dated. Chef was very robotic and didn't really look look he enjoyed his job, this was a shame as I have been to Benihana in London UK and Las Vegas and had much better nights. The food was of average quality and service could have been better...I would not rush back.

“the perfect party”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

For my husban's birthday we desided to go to bennihanan because he really enjoys meat. Because i am a vegetarian, i figured i would just pick somthing up after. but when the guy, Carlos came to cook our food ( on a very impressive open grill ) he asked why i wasn't eating and i told him it was because i was vegitarian. he laughed and told me there were lots of vegitarian ofers. i ended up eating a delisious corn salad. yummy!!! it ended up being a lovley family meal. plus, the kids got free ice cream! what could be better? definatley recomended.
