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!

    Went in a party of 4. We were seated within 10 minutes of the reservation. Waitress did a good job, but the table side chef got orders to the wrong seats between the other party of 4 at the same table, even after confirming at the start of cooking. I ordered the steak, and was disappointed with the toughness of the cut. I'm unlikely to return.

    I recently took my girlfriend for her birthday and it was a great time and our first time experiencing a place like this. The food was fantastic and the chef was friendly and entertaining. The sushi was delicious and the lobster tail was phenomenal i would definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting to take their special someone out on a nice dinner date.

    While the service and the Tepan chef were quite good, and the menu selections were good, the quality of the food was marginal. The onion soup was very bland, and the seasonings were a bit too salty. I have been experiencing Tepanyaki style dining for many years and the quality of the experience has been on the decline for several years - I associate it with the demise of the Japanese expertise!

    It's an awesome spot for birthdays, and I adore the food. I do think the servers could be a LOT more friendly, and Benihana in general should update the routine the chefs go through...or at least have them change it up a little. Does everyone have to do that train whistle thing? Does every table have to see the onion volcano? If our chef doesn't catch the egg in his pocket, do we have to tip him? I don't know, just some "food for thought". Point is, I'll still go back again and again because I love their food and they are just a great spot for fun friendly get-together date nights and the like.

    We booked a birthday party at Benihana and had our own table. The management knew it was a birthday party, but somehow they forgot to sing to the birthday girl -- although they sang at other tables. After nearly 1.5 hours seated at the hibachi table, we had to leave to make it to a movie on time, so it was disappointing.

    We frequent Benihana and this time it was just ok. Our server served us hot tea that was cold and never brought back another kettle with hot tea in it. He just left the one that was cold on the table. Every time I drank my tea I had to ask for a refill instead of just being able to get it myself. Server just was not into it and left the bill for us to pay when we still had dirty dishes in front of us. Our chef was just ok too. The food was very good.

    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.
