A word from Benihana - Coral Springs
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!

    This trip was a Thursday night dinner. The food was delicious and our chef was very nice. The server was not very interested in being there. The whole time he either went missing or when he spoke with u he'd be paying attention elsewhere. Basically took the order and ran.

  • Delay in meal serving

    Dined on 9/7/2014
    Didn't like the order in which the meal was served. I practically finished my staple(chicken fried rice) while delaying, before I got the hibachi shrimp. I finished all the above before I was served with the hibachi vege. I understand this was due to the variety of orders on a shared table. The meal was great, but I would enjoy more if the delay time was lessen and I could have my entire meal on my plate in a reasonable time.

    This was a 50th birthday Celebration. The time we waited for our chief was ridiculous. And the Chief Kai wasn't enthusiastic. He was very boring. was also very slow with preparing the food. I wanted to go at another table. Very Very displeased. Unless I see improvement. I will be visiting the other restaurant on Commercial Blvd.

    Typically Benihana is fantastic- but this time they only had 5 chefs for a Sunday night- the service was awful- poor planning on behalf of the restaurant. I go to Benihana all the time and was very disappointed. The chef ignored our requests wouldn't acknowledge anythjng we said. Kids were restless waiting.

    My celebration at Benihana was wonderful even though I did not receive my gift certificate to eat free. As usual, the food was amazing and our chef, Kai, was fantastic. Our server, Wendy, was a bit forgetful of our requests, which was annoying, but other than that I had a ball with my friends.

    I took my boyfriend out for his birthday to Benihana since he has never been and he LOVED it! He enjoyed the hibachi table that we sat at. It was great watching the other cooks while waiting for ours. Very friendly staff. It was worth it alone seeing my boyfriend get embarrassed with the birthday singing. Fantastic! Thank you guys for making it a memorable experience.

    Benihana is a good place to go for Hibachi food (also for sushi, which I don't eat, but which is available nevertheless!) The ambiance is warm and welcoming, the hostess and servers are friendly and helpful, and the food is tasty. The menu is quite large and so you have much of a choice when deciding on your lunch/dinner. Drinks are also plentiful and delicious! The hibachi stations and the chefs are fun to watch and interact with and provide children with their entertaining professionalism. The lounge area is more quiet but an easy place to dine/drink as well.

    Our waiter was doing his best, but he was overwhelmed with work, they def needed more support staff. I actually was bussing our table myself, I collected our used glasses, etc and put them on an abandoned tray behind us (which was kind of gross) Our Chef was a nice guy, he did the show and engaged the children and adults, but the food was woefully under seasoned. It took 45 minutes from when we sat down before the first morsel of food was available. That's too long considering we have the food cooked at our table. The bathrooms were clean (yay!!) but the table was sticky...ewww. I wont go back to this location, but I have eaten at several other Benihana's (in NY & FL) and they were better

    We went on a Wednesday night, they didn't look busy but has three parties going and only three chefs. We were seated at 605. Drinks, soup salad came and done by 630. But the chef didn't come to the table until 7pm a full 55 minutes after seating. The waitress apologized as did the manager but the wait was just crazy. A little harder for us since we had to entertain our 2 1/2 year old as well, even with his DVD player and toys. Food was good, the chef was great very playful with our son. I would recommend but be in for a wait

    I am not sure but it seems that something has changed at Benihana's except for the price. There did not seem to be much excitement in the house as their use to be. The dinner show was very lacking in customer involvement and artistry on the part of the chef.

    Service was good, food was good showmanship of chef was horrible, We had family in from Chile and told them how great the show was. There was not a show. NO egg spinning, no shrimp in the hat and pocket. A lame attempt at an onion train. Then to top it off Manager gave us 15 off for the lack of showmanship. Would no go back or recommend this one to anyone.

    On my 3rd visit this month it was a bit dissappointing. Had to wait 20 min to get seated even tho we had a reservation then approximately another 45 min before the chef finally came to our table. My husbands steak was cooked well done when he asked for rare so we had to wait again for that to be cooked. Not pleased this time around. Will not go back during the week. Definitely understaffed with chefs.

    My husband and I have eaten at Benihana on Commercial several times. We were glad to know there is now a Benihana close to us. But, I must say I was disappointed with regard to our reservation status when we first arrived. Our reservation was for 5:30 pm and we arrived about 15 min early. No problem there. After 5 min we were seated. It is what came after that. No one seem to realize we were seated. Servers were working and taking care of other tables including the one that was seated after us. We waited nearly 30 min--10 min til reservation time and then 20 min after reservation before we spoke up to a server at the table next to us. Don't recall her name, but one finally jumped in and became our server.

    I reserved a table to celebrate my 3 year anniversary with my spouse. The reservation was for 9pm, we arrived on time. The host told us she would seat us shortly, we had to stand for over 10 minutes. Once we were seated, 15min later we were asked if we could wait so they can fill the table with additional guest, it was late and they were going to close the table, we agreed. We were told to wait 5min which turned to 10. We ended up eating dinner at 10:00pm. Very disappointing experience, I was excited to go, however now I definitely would not recommend anyone to visit the Coral Springs location. The food was good, not amazing as expected.

    My guests and I were celebrating 4 birthdays with a party of 10. This was the worst visit to this restaurant ever in the past 6 years my family, friends, coworkers, and I have been coming here multiple times a year. The food orders were incorrect, oily and bland. The drinks were watered down and had to be sent back multiple times. Two plates from our party of ten were dirty. And the worst of it all... After eating our salads, it took an hour and ten minutes for a chef to come to our table. While waiting so long I asked to speak with the manager who never came. No birthday songs were sung to the birthday guests and no group photo was taken. Collectively $226 later after using 4 birthday coupons, we will never return.

    My husband, who is from Croatia, had never been to any restaurant like a Benihana's and thoroughly enjoyed himself. . . he loved the banter and the "show" that occurred during the preparation of his meal. I particularly appreciated the staff's concern over his shellfish allergy; even the manager came over to check that he was okay to smell shellfish, if not actually eat it. We had a wonderful time. . Thanks to all the staff who took care of us!
