A word from Benihana - Miami Beach
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!

  • Most energetic dinner in a long time
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    Took my niece to Benihana on her 14th birthday and it was perfect! We had Louis as our chef and he was beyond charismatic and personable. The entire night he was making jokes as he whipped up our dinner. The waitress was attentive and the food was great. My only reservation about Benihana is that they cook EVERYTHING with a ton of butter. Its delicious, but not exactly healthy. Other than that, the place is great. The price per entree is roughly $25 but with your entree you get a soup, salad, and for an extra couple of bucks you get fried rice. The portions are generous and the chef always gives a the leftover to hungry patrons. I would recommend this restaurant for special family occasions.

    I made a reservation for 2 people, I got there and sat down in my chair and was forced to move to another chair so a handicap person could sit down. I didn't mind moving but I felt so squished since the table was packed and a person with a wheel chair was close to me so I asked to sit In another table and they told me I had to wait 30mins to be sat down. It's ridiculous that I had a reservation and wasn't comfortable in a table & needed to wait a extra 30mins for another one because of "lack of servers". Worst service I've gotten from there .

    The restaurant looks the same for the past 30 years. Like it hasn't even been painted in 30 years. Good was ok, but nothing special. Service was good though and the kids had fun.

  • Our Birthday Locale of Choice!
    gr8memories4life
    Dined on 11/4/2014
    This is our daughter's favorite location for her birthday celebration. They do a great job of making the day memorable with the birthday girl (there was another at our table) feel special, including a candle lit dessert and a family photo at the end. My only comment, this time, was the chef used a lot of salt so you might want to specifically ask they go light.

    I have visited this location more than a few times. This time was not great at all. I made a reservation for my bday some of the people in my party had arrived and they refuse to seat us we waited an additional hour or more then I had to get really upset and inform the host it was my bday and its not fair I had to wait so long after my reservation. Also the waitress was soo unattentive she forgot things and didn't bring water to our area(horrible) if it wasn't for the cook Scott he was amazing and made everything better but . I didn't even get the $30 off bday meal from this restaurant (sigh) don't think i will be having any special party events there again just go for lunch or something

    Despite of having a reservation, we always have to wait too much to sit. At this time, we had to wait about 40 minutes. There is a rude and impolite receptionist (one that works at night and wear eyeglasses with black frame. She had no identification). She doesn't know how to treat the public, mainly tourists like me and my fiancee that doesn't speak english perfectly (we are from Brazil). We saw she suggesting to a guest, that was complaining about the wait, to cancel her reservation if she doesn't want to wait. It is not the first time we and other people were treated like this by this receptionist. We think she is working at the wrong place. The food and the ability of the chef always impress us, but the reception and the wait are bad.

    The food was good and the preparation by the Hibachi chefs was entertaining. The chef show was done like an "assembly line". All the chefs were basically doing the same routine. The decor is a little shabby and old looking but well kept. The experience was okay but not worth the big money.

    This location has a scenic view i was disappointed that i was sat away from the view. There were no other diners or reservations because the tables were not used the entire time. The young ladies at the front, i won't call them hostess' because they weren't warm, or welcoming. i arrived 15 mins early for rsvp & after i said hello i was told in these exact words" "Orlando" not sir or Mr. Reyes, is your entire party here? my rsvp was for 5 and i was standing with 4 other people, then i was told that i would to have to wait until my scheduled time. No please enjoy our garden, our bar, or please have a seat in the lobby. the server was excellent though, food was tasty but the chef was boring. not what i wanted to celebrate my daughter's b-day.
