A word from Benihana - Broomfield
Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.

Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

  • Not our best Benihana experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We have been going to Benihana's at least annually for decades. We also eat at other restaurants frequently. We go to the Benihana's in Broomfield because our granddaughter likes it. We visit to Colorado about 3 times each year. We allow our granddaughter to choose what restaurant she wants after we spend a special day together. The cook had the food for another table. By the time he figured that out our rice was already cold. Not wanting it to get colder and also being hungry we ate the rice and did not have it to enjoy with the vegetables. My filet was not tender. One of the guests had chicken, but the chef did not discover that until after everyone else had their food. The meal was a bit disjointed and not up to your usual standards.

    Johnny was a fantastic chef! He kept us entertained through the whole meal and was great with the kids at our table too, while not neglecting the adult sense of humor either. The food was great and he did great tricks as well. Very interactive vs some of the other chefs we've had before. Great time and made my birthday really special. Good Job Johnny!

    If you know what the deal with Benihana is, then you know about this restaurant. The food was good and it was cool watching the chef cook the food right in front of you. The chef was great, our waiter was good, and the food was good. Sort of exactly what you would expect with this type of chain restaurant. It was a bit expensive, but I was impressed with the interior decoration and ambience.

    Had a great meal (drinks, sushi, and dinner). The only sad this in they changed the white sauce they used to have for chicken and shrimp to a more mustard-based sauce, which wasn't as good. Still highly recommend any Benihana restaurant.

    It would have been a lot nicer if our cook had been more fun. He was either new to the whole thing or he just wasn't in the mood. He didn't find a way to connect with us and he was rather quiet. I've had more enjoyable, upbeat experiences. Next time I would go with a bigger group of people I know. The people we were sitting with were not very social either so it just made the whole experience average. And for $100 for a group of two adults and one child I expect more.

    We ended up being the only 2 people at our table and the waiter seemed annoyed with us because of that. Also tried to give us the dinner menu during lunch hour when the prices are 1/2 of what they normally are. He also seemed irritated that we asked even asked for the lunch menu. We ordered sushi and it never came, when we told him after our meal that we never got it he just asked if we still wanted it. The manager also stopped by the table and asked how everything was. I said "Pretty Good" and he just said GREAT! I guess he is ok with pretty good for his restaurant standard. AND! If you like the shrimp sauce that is usually served at this style restaurant, don't go here. They don't have it.

    It was a wondeful night with my children, we had a great time, the food was to die for, the other family we shared our table with was wonderful company. Their daughter and mine became good friends. We were celebrating my son Lukas' continuation from the 5th grade, my daughter's Kindergarten continuation, and my graduation from Front Range Community College and the photo the took of all three of us was great, I can't wait to shate it with friends and family. We all had a great night and cane wait to return.

    We enjoyed EXCELLENT service from the staff. The food was High-quality and tasty. The only downside to this restaurant (this chain) is that if you don't have at least 7 people, you get seated at the same table with people you don't know- and you are not asked if this is OK ahead of time. That may be attractive to some people, but if you want a more intimate setting just for your group, this is probably not the place for you.

    We go to the benihanna at flatirons about often over the last few months and years. Last night they couldn't find strainers for the Benihanna hearbal tea for 3 individuals at our table. So we had to share the strainer. This is the 4 time I have heard about how the staff can't find the strainers. Buy them some so that everyone can partake of your menu fully. Also the staff seems run down(tired) and low morale. That is a good sign of work frustration, so please allow them to enjoy being at work instead of hating it.

    After making a reservation we were excited to dine at this great restaurant for the first time. But our excitement soon died as we were not seated until 45 minutes after our reservation time, since we had been skipped over in the line of hungry people. Once seated we waited for another 30 minutes before we got our soup and by this time the whole table was rather hungry. After another 30-45 minutes the chef came over to start on our food. The food was simply wonderful but the service was terrible.

    I love Benihana and have been going to Benihana since my brother introduced me to Rocky years ago. It is a great place for kids because the chefs are entertaining that it holds their attention. BUT...several times, we have waited almost an hour before the chef started to cook and we have lost the kids and made it less than enjoyable because they were ready to get up and run around. We had a reservation and the restaurant in Westminster is always busy so if you don't have enough staff, then don't take the reservation. There were many young children the other night and it is tough to hold their attention for long periods of time. I have 3 grandchildren under the age of 4 and on the nights where we didn't have a long wait, they loved it.

    We made an online reservation due to the lateness of deciding where to go and traffic concerns. However we had no traffic and arrived 45 min early and checked in. We were told that they would try to seat us earlier and asked if we wanted to sit in the lounge. We just got situated and almost drinks when they called us to be seated prefect.

    I'm sure this restaurant is better on a normal day, but dining on Mother's Day was a nightmare. We were seated 30 minutes late and had our orders taken 30 minutes after that. The volume of business and the number of younger diners made it difficult for the staff the keep up with cleaning and the carpets were covered with food.

    We went to Benihanna this time to celebrate several may occasions in family. We went on a 75 dollar voucher from the manager as we had a bad experience last time. This time the service was FABULOUS! AND SO WAS THE FOOD.! Glad we gave it another try and we had a nice time. Great chef and did fun stuff for my son at the table like letting my son throw shrimp in his hat and the server was very attentive as well. Thank you to the manager for giving us a 75 dollars off the next visit and restoring our faith in Benihanna.

    My wife and I took our two twin girls to Benihana for their 15th birthday. When the chef came over and started his routine, the girl's were mesmerized by the cutting and clanging. They watched in amazement at the skill of the chef as he flinged an egg into his hat and then threw it into a bowl where it cracked perfectly off his spatula. It was a fun time and there were at least four other birthday celebrations while we were there. Be careful though, the food and drink costs add up quickly. Lots of fun! Definitely a must go if you haven't been yet!
