A word from Benihana - Denver
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well as your taste buds. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice and dice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes.

Sushi appetizers can be ordered in the dining room, or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh sashimi, maki and temaki sushi from our full sushi menu.

Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent restaurant, with great service and delicious food - my fiancé and I are on a quest to visit every Benihana in the US, and this has long been our go-to restaurant whenever we're in the Denver area. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable, and they seem to go out of their way at times to make sure we're happy. The bar is great, and the teppan chefs always put on a great show. A little higher priced than some similar restaurants, but it's worth it!"

  • "We had a group of 10 that became 14 then 12, and they were very accommodating, even getting us all at one table by request on a fairly busy Sunday night. The service was very friendly, and they even offered to split the check by couple without complaint. The food was typically great, and we had a very fun evening out."

  • "Benihana's has been my favorite birthday celebration place for the past 15 years, here in Denver and California (Orange County). When we would celebrate Thanksgiving in Las Vegas with out of town family we always had our holiday dinner at the Benihana's. You could say its the favorite celebration place!"

  • "Ok so I wanted to come to eat here because it looks nice and it was my birthday. I didn't like sharing the table or the menu prices. It's defenilty too expensive I spend 101 dollars for two adults and two kids. The food wasn't all that I wasn't even full. They give you 5 types of food but it's not a lot or worth the money your spending. It was not a nice birthday dinner."

The chef, was funny, and paid attention to the birthday girl quite a bit, which she loved! She definitely had a dinner to remember."

The prices are reasonable for a nice dinner, and I would happily recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and different dinner with family or friends."

  • "My family and I have always enjoyed eating at Benihana's. The food is always good and most of the chefs are really good. The other chefs are not bad, but there are some chefs that really put on a good show and make it a fun evening and are friendly and outgoing. This has always been a favorite restaurant for special occasions such as birthdays, graduations and other special celebrations."

  • "Went for my hubby's bday. Food was great as usual. The kids especially enjoyed the "show". Only reason for no 5 stars is my hubby is part of their bday club but they wouldn't give him the comp meal without seeing the email even though we were there on his actual bday with ID in hand. "

My 4 and 7 year old grandchildren love eating at Benihana 's, they're mesmerized by what the cooks are able to do. The whole eating experience is always so much fun. It's a wonderful experience for every age."

  • "quality of food was low for price. Very noisy. No ambiance. You pay for the name. There are better choices in Denver."

  • "We've been here before so we knew what we were getting into. The food was great and the chef was entertaining. Our waitress was awesome. She really took care of us. The people sitting next to us were really nice. The only negatives were that it was a little warm, due to all of the grills being used, but that's ok. The sangria was a bit strong, but some folks might actually like it that way. Our table was a bit crowded. We had to wait 15 minutes after our reservation time. Overall, a fine dining experience."

  • "Benihana, always fun, food is always good, I mean, it's hibachi. Super noisy due to the large number of large groups and plethora of children. Drinks are so overpriced it's ridiculous, I'm talking a big Kirin is almost twice as expensive as I've gotten it at other nice Asian restaurants, but drink prices aside, you get what you expect, we'll be back because it's fun on occasion."

  • "If you have never been to Benihana's you have got to go, not only do they have great food but the chefs at your table do everything they can to make it an enjoyable dinnner for you and your guests. Only thing is because they cook in front of you and they do it in large groups it takes longer so if you can make your reservations early you'll Thank yourself later."

  • "It's a satisfying experience from start to finish. I like the repetitive and often silly entertainment while they cook. The food is great, service is great, I always leave happy. I tend to get a mix of meat and seafood like the Samaurai - Yum!! Looking forward to my next visit."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I took my daughter, her boyfriend, her mother and myself to Benihana because I was the only one in the group that had witnessed the show that they put on while feeding you a wonderful dinner. The show was terrific but, the overall noise level was a bit overpowering. The whole restaurant smelled yummy. Made you want to stop and try some of everyone's dinner just to see if it was as good as it looked."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We brought our 7 year old daughter so she could enjoy the show of fire, juggling utensils, etc. No fire....I guess since they have added so many cooking tables to the restaurant they can't do any sort of open flame anymore. Our chef dropped his utensils so many times while trying to juggle that we all started ducking and just prayed he could actually cook. We asked for a knife to cut our daughter's steak more as the chef gave her huge chunks. We were told that only the chef had knives and that we couldn't have one. At least the chef relented and let us use one of his to cut her food to edible sizes. It was a bad experience to say the least. I hate to give a poor review, there's just no way around it. "
