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.

  • Bad Chef

    Benihana's is one of my favorite restaurants, but this time we got the worst chef we have ever had. Most go for the fun demonstrations, but the few he tried did not work, and a lot of the usual ones, he didn't try at all. Seem to be a rush job from an inexperienced chef. I felt bad for the kids at the table. I hope to never sit at Ivan's table again

    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.

    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!

    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.

    This is such a fun place. Better for groups. You have to sit with 6-8 people, so better if they are people you know. Otherwise you sit with strangers. Fine with me and my hubby, maybe not for some folks.

    We went to Benihana's for my daughters 7th birthday. I haven't been in years, and thought she'd enjoy the dinner show. The service was great, and very accommodating to both my kids. The chef, was funny, and paid attention to the birthday girl quite a bit, which she loved! She definitely had a dinner to remember.

    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.
