i went to this rest. on saturday and to say the least i was not impressed at all...the place was small cramped..the wait was aprox 1.5hours..the food was overprices 19 bucks for yakisoba and it didnt even taste good the chicken was tough...it was group of 10 people celebrating a birthday..Ive been to other hibatchi rest prior and this place was so louddddddd filled with drunk people and every other 20mins someone was singing happie birthday at a table..you can barely here yourself speak with all the noise...although the chief "kin" i think his name was was ok the main dishes were not good...one good thing i can say is the brocilli tempura was good and the edamame...but if your looking for a hibatchi place to eat try something else..at the end of the night our tab was $424 just overpriced for no reason. ive had better yakisoba across the street at the cafe by my job...stick to appetizers here nothing more...and dont expect to to see sushi on this menu its not but they do have it you have to ask for it like one lady in our party did.

I have been going to benihana for my birthdays, and just casual dinners for about 23 years now....although the restaurant is loud and filled with kids, you cant beat the amazing soup salad and the sauce i put on my rice....it is amazing...dont come here for a "romantic dinner" but if you want a nice fun enjoyable night out, this is the place to be....tastes may vary, so dont base your trial of this restaurant on me...i grew up with it

This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. It is not a tourist trap what so ever, I have lived in the city for a year and go atleast a couple times a month. If you want the absolute best, be ready to spend a little more and get the filet mignon. It is delicious. Also, dont forget to order fried rice. They use garlic butter which is to die for. You get to watch them prepare your food in front of you, and although it might take a while, it is more than worth the wait. Just remember to always make a reservation even if its in the middle of the week.

We recently went to Benihana's for a birthday. The food was good - the value was great. Everyone ate and drank for about $40 a person. I would recommend it for groups. Getting seated was a total hassle, but once seated, service was good. The scallops were amazing, and the chicken fried rice was the best we'd ever tasted.

This place is a tourist attraction, and nothing more. The "thrill" of having your food cooked right in front of you is heavily outweighed by the long wait (we didn't start eating until one and a half hours after our reservation), the noisy, kid's birthday party-type atmosphere, and the blandness of the food, which was the biggest disappointment. I was completely famished by the time I got to eat and found the taste of the food highly lacking, despite my grumbling stomach. I won't be back.

I've gone to Benihana so many times during the course of 19 years now and until this day it has not disappointed me nor my family. Every time we go we bring different people from New Jersey who have never been there and they leave Benihana satisfied and with the desire to go back. The food is delicious, you can request for the chef to add more of the spices you like (my husband always asks for extra garlic butter on his steak) and they gladly abide. It's even more fun if you go with a group. Great attitude, great food, great fun!

The restaurant overall was great I love the food. I also love the restaurant and the people. I would love to go there everyday if I could.
