Our server was attentive, and on top of things. We never had to ask for anything. I can't remember her name ,but kudos to her.
We were seated promptly upon arriving at our reservation time.

Perfect for a birthday dinner
I took my niece there for her birthday and she loved it! The chef was talented and very funny. The waitress was polite and attentive. They took our picture and placed it in a frame, but I know she will never forget that night!

Food is always good and timely. I went during the week so seating and getting through the whole experience seemed longer. Keep in mind for planning.

I enjoyed that we were seated 20 minutes early
The service here is excellent! We really enjoyed it. Remember to join the birthday club and kids club for freebies.
I was really disappointed in the 30 minute wait, even though we had reservations. It was also extremely too bright for a romantic double date night- I remember the ambiance being a lot different at another location. But, overall we still had a great time & the food is always amazing.

Reservation was at 7:00 pm but wasn't seated until 7:45 pm. Then we had to wait 20 minutes before server came to take our drink order. Food order taken at 8:20. Poor service, uninspired chef. I've been to several other Benihanas many times. This one is so far below expectations they should rename the resturant because it gives the impression they are all like this one which is not the case.
Bad management planning
We had dinner reservations for 6:30 on Valentine Day. We were seated after 7:00 pm. Bad planning by the management staff and rude/unconcerned hostess. Other guest waited for a longer period. The food and our server were great.
Reservation.. what's the point?
We scheduled a reservation months on advance only to have to wait 45 minutes fir a table...and another 30 for our drinks..sadly this place has gone down hill...
Terrible service, hostess kept forgetting our drinks kept saying she would be right back came back twenty min later Oh I'm sorry I forgot about you all. The check kept dropping eggs and stopped cooking to go get more.....more than likely I want visit this location again and I frequent this location many times

The whole experience is always awesome! I love coming back time and time again. The steak is always cooked to perfection and the fried rice is delicious. Cocktails are reasonable and the service is always great!
Took the wife to Benihana's for Valentine's Day. Good thing we had a reservation. The place was packed but has changed a lot over the year(the dessert buffet is long gone. The service was good but the menu could use a lot of work. That is, there are too many things that you have to pay for(no substitutions allowed)that you don't want to eat. For example, if your steak comes with shrimp, you're getting shrimp(whether you are allergic to seafood or not). While we enjoyed having dinner another couple and their four kids that we had never met before, I find this kind of seating arrangement a little bit uncomfortable. Absolutely no privacy for a $100 dinner.

Party larger than 8
Tables cannot accommodate any party larger than 8, ended up having to have 2 tables.
Love the Benihana's experience!
It is so nice to be able to make reservations and enjoy a great dinner at Benihana's. We had a wonderful time and the food was so good, as usual! We will be back again soon!

Our first time here and we came with high expectations of service, food and a show. The service was good not great. Only choice cut beef for the price of prime but the show was great. We weren't there for a special occasion just decided to go. We live in a small town and there's a local steakhouse with far better steaks and seafood. Your definitely paying for a show!

Wonderful chef! Great food!
Wonderful chef! Great food!
I normally love going to benihana on my birthday. We bring all of my 6 children ( ages between 14-3 months). Anyhow our reservation was at 7:15 and we didn't get a chef started on our food until 8:30. Fortunately my chicadees where on their best behavior, until about 8:15 that's when the whining began and that wasn't the children. Finally as the chef comes he throws our prepared food together and we ate and had birthday ice cream and left. I'll just go to the restaurant on westheimer as that one has alot more room and apparently more chefs
First Time Visitor
We came to Benihana for a birthday and did not realize we would share a table with other people. The drawback is that we have young kids so I felt bad for the other party but we managed. The waiter was phenomenal, always on top of things and never minded my 6 yr old son asking him questions repeatedly. We messed up ordering, not realizing that soup came with the meal so one person ordered it as an appetizer (our fault). Would have been nice if waiter had explained the menu a bit as it was a lot to take in. I ordered a margarita and I have to say that I think it was the best margarita I have ever had, hands down. I wanted another one but $10/per drink was too much for our budget. We were very pleased with our food quality. The chef was nice but I had always heard of the amazing things that they do and ours was quite unsuccessful with all of his efforts so I felt bad for him and appreciated other chefs at other tables for the entertainment at the grill. Overall it was a pleasant experience and we are glad we did it. Just not sure if we'll splurge like this again when we can get a mongolian bowl for $10/per person and have incredible tasting food. This is a restaurant for people who have a healthy discretionary income.
I have been a loyal customer for about twenty years.
WILL NOT DARKEN THE DOORS AT THIS LOCATION AGAIN.
THIS WAS THE WORST SERVICE WE HAVE RECEIVED WE WERE SEATED AT THE TABLE FOR 25 MINUTES BEFORE THE WAITRESS EVER CAME TO GET OUR DRINK ORDER, THEN SAT FOR 20MIN BEFORE THE DRINKS WERE DELIVERED AND OUR ORDER WAS TAKEN. THE GAP BETWEEN THE COURSES OF OUR FOOD BEING BROUGHT OUT WAS TOO LONG. THEN SHE KEPT TELLING US THE COOK WOULD BE THERE SOON, AND FINALLY AN HOUR AND 25 MINUTES ATER WE SAT DOWN HE GOT THERE TO COOK FOR US. WE ARRIVED AT 5:50 MONDAY EVENING, AND THERE WERE AT LEAST 8 EMPTY TABLES SO NOT SURE WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS.
Typical Birthday at Benihana
We can always expect a consistently good experience at Benihana Sugar Land. The food is good, the preparation entertaining, and even the off-key birthday song has grown familiar! The restaurant design does not lend itself to a private, quiet dinner for two, but that is a secondary consideration - we come for the entertainment and food.
