the atmosphere and decor is the nicest thing about this place. the cooking really depends on the chef you get but they are all very different. I've been here several times and it is just okay. go for the experience, not the food. the food is actually pretty average and almost all other similar places have better tasting food.
First time visiting Benihana (have been to loads of other hibachi restaurants before) and had an experience that left more to be desired. This location is absolutely breathtaking, located inside Westgate Casino/Hotel. Beautiful entryway into the restaurant with waterfall and pond. We made reservations for a Friday night for 2 people, and ended up sitting with a party of 6 (8 total seats at the table) who was celebrating their birthday. Had a great time with these people! Photographer came around and took a table photo, but only took photos of the other party of 6, none for us which was embarrassing. Ordered a sake, they failed to bring it until after we had food, despite all other drinks coming out and even being finished before I received mine. Service was very slow and not attentive at all. Food is moderately priced and had good flavor, but smaller portions compared to other restaurants. Once the photos came out, the cost was nearly $80 for one photo AND the photographer didn't even bring us one to purchase even though we were in the photo...... Disappointing experience but the food was decent.
The experience here was great and my compliments to the chef as he was very good. My group had the hibachi and I also ordered sushi which was also amazing as well. I would recommend this place if your looking for an experience as well as a meal.
The food here never disappoints. Prime quality steak cooked to perfection, juicy lobster, and extra helpings of their signature fried rice. Sign up and get a birthday certificate worth $30.
We didn't get to eat at Benihana because we didn't have a reservation. But the Chinese place which was located in the same spot, was everything the food was so good, it put our Chinese cuisines in new Orleans to shame. I would definitely eat there again
