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!

    Service was very poor. Had to wait in the front for a couple of minutes even though we had a reservation. Also, had to wait a long time to be served and asked for a spoon and was never provided one. This restaurant definitely did not meet our expectations. Do not think we will return due to the lack of service and professionalism. It was my mother's birthday and she did not leave happy.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    It was my birthday night and I was looking forward to trying somewhere different... Me and my best friends sat with another couple. Our waiter had a little trouble understanding English but she was ok with bringing our soup, salad, and drinks. Our chef was David and he is a funny guy who did a wonderful job keeping us entertained cause I get bored easily. His culinary skills are superb and he is a new chef. He kinda messed up on one particular trick with the shrimp but its no biggie. Food was delicious and I was too full to finish but I managed to finish my birthday ice cream yum! The camera guy needs to learn how to take better pictures cuz he messed up everytime there was no zoom. It was good otherwise.

    Benihana is what it is. A fun place for groups looking for a good time. Servie is very attentative. We were there for my daughter's 18th birthday with her friends and family. The hostess tried to seat us in a corner even though a table by the window was open. When we asked about it, one of the servers stepped in and took us to the better table. He then gave us unsurpassed attention the rest of the evening. A typically fun Benihana evening.

    I normally love this location; however, this last visit wasn't what I was expecting. The restaurant was crawling with kids, and not well behaved children. They were up and down from their seats and running all over the restaurant. It was very different from my prior Benihana experiences. The bartender was fantastic when we ordered wine before dinner. Our chef, Jay, was very nice and made fantastic food. The shrimp was especially delicious compared to other visits. Service was slow, and there was definitely a language barrier.

    Just decided to chech out Benihana for the first time very busy Saturday night. Very busy reservation is a must to avoid waiting for table. Food was excellent and service. Chefs were awesome with there tricks before preparing food for you. Will recommend to family & friends.

    The food was amazing, as per usual. However, part of the experience at Benihana is the "show!" I wasn't impressed with Chan's tricks, although his banter was funny at times. He just wasn't very charismatic... or much of a showman. The noise level isn't too bad as long as a birthday song every few minutes doesn't drive you up the wall. I had a large enough group that we weren't paired up with strangers. That will happen if your group is small. The filet mignon and lobster were particularly delicious. Great dinner

    Chef Jay was excellent and very pleasant. A true master of hibachi cooking. The only drawback were the rude hostesses who were immature, unprofessional and just plain rude. One seated us around the hibachi table and her colleague then came and yelled at us because of the seating pattern the first had chosen. The two need lessons in customer service and manners. Jay the chef saved the evening and the Benihana reputation.

    One of the best dinners I had in my life, including all Continents. Best Food, Quality Service, Very nice view, Different Occasions, Nice place to Celebrate, etc.... Notes: 1- Separate Bills ("WAiting BAR'' x Dinner). This shouldn't happen nor be a policy. Group and Corporate Dinners must have a single bill 2- Would suggest to ask the waiters to pay more attention whenever we need another saque, beer, water, etc (some times it took a lot to get another beer)
