  • "Reservation at 9; didn't start eating until 11. Unbelievable..."

  • "Absolutely LOVED this Benihana's location! This was my first time here and I had a great experience. Made reservations and sat down fairly quickly. I went to the one in Coral Gables and never wanted to go back from how boring and horrible the food was there. This was a nice change. Will definitely be coming back! Had a great birthday dinner."

(with server Denny.).. i got hibachi steak .apparently Denny ordered the wrong item... I did not eat the steak it was tough, hard.. yet I was billed for full price.."

  • "My wife and I dined there July 2 for our birthdays and it was such an a amazing experience. The staff was so on point and treated us with such great hospitality!!! I can't wait to go back.. The scenery was great by the bay and chef was fantastic and very interactive with my table!!!"

  • "We celebrated my mom's birthday and she had a truly amazing time! The chef on the hibachi grill was energetic and engaged every single person while she cooked for us, making jokes and drink suggestions (The coconut mojito is AMAZING) She made a show of the dinner, making us laugh and keeping us interested in what she was doing. It was truly a great time, the price goes with the food and you get a lot of great tasting food on your plate, ask about the specials if you're looking to save a little, they are so worth it!"

  • "This place has an awesome view but it can be a hassle because if you are not in a big party you might get seated with annoying people. My Wife and I went there for a date night and got seated with a family of 4 with two children. The husband was very picky and the small child was throwing food around the table. But overall I enjoyed the food and the chef. Also the view is AMAZING"

  • "Worst Benihana experience in 20 years as a client. Staff acting as robots with a poor interacting with customers, no smiling no talking. Almost cero tricks while cooking. Not only my table, I witness the same climate all around the place. I fell like being served the Benihana delicious food in a Pollo Tropical place."

  • "Usually I love benihana but this time, the food was mediocre... The chef looked like he was in a bad mood, was boring and his food had no flavor. Everyone left their plate. The service was horrible.. We ordered sushi and it never came, we had to get the hostess to come give us water because our waitress was no where to be found, she wasn't attentive. I was really let down this time and very disappointed."

  • "Went night after Fathers Day, so it wasn't busy. Had reservation to celebrate birthday, which they forgot & I had to remind them. Asked for table by the water -3 were empty, when they seated us in a corner! Waited 30 minutes at table before finally asking for someone to take our order. Soup, & salad not delivered until chef started cooking & then staff eager to clear table for dinner, so it felt rushed. Ordered sushi appetizers & didn't get until chef almost done cooking. Waitress never gave us water until we asked. Order was mixed up & chef, thus, accidentally gave our portion to other guest at table, who ate it before realizing the error. Chef practically nonverbal & somewhat slow, but did the usual tricks."

  • "I went to Benihana's as a special occasion. Me and my boyfriend were celebrating fathers day. I enjoyed the spectacular service, the engaging ambiance, and the delicious food. I loved it the and would love to go again, it was inexpensive and great quality."

  • "Although the food was really good the service was awfull...our chef did t do any entertainment while all the other chefs did next to us so we were looking at the table over instead of our own table...on top of that it was my cousins birthday we asked the waitress if she could bring ice cream for her and sing she said no probleme and never came even when we reminded her... Gee thanks for making her feel special on a day she felt forgetten....bad experience"

  • "The food was great and the cook performance was very nice. Only concern was with the hostesses. We had a reservation for 7 people, and we were 7 people including a baby and a lady with an advanced pregnancy whom had to wait standing more than 30 minutes past reservation time to be seated. When we finally were assigned on a table, after being seated we were requested to leave that one because was not room for a high chair. But reservation were made for 7 spots! In that table were already seated 3 persons who came without reservation while we were waiting to be seated. 10 more standing minutes later, we were seated at other table. After that, every thing was perfect. Great cook, great food, great service."

  • "I was expecting something special, however the chefs were not as entertaining as other places. I was overall satisfied, but lacked what other Hibachi places offer to make them special."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Our reservation was for 5:30pm and we were seated promptly at that time. Our chef was new so we didn't see as many tricks as usual but he was very friendly. My son got sushi and was very satisfied. The other 3 hibachi meals tasted good but my scallops were slightly overcooked and chewy. Also the steamed white rice was brought out by our waiter just as our chef started cooking and by the time the hibachi food was done the rice was cold. The hibachi veggies were cooked perfectly. Overall a very nice dining out experience."

  • "It appears that my credit card number may have been stolen from the Behihana - Miami Beach. This is the only restaurant that I went to while there. I would recommend not going there or at least use caution when using your credit card."

  • "The restaurant atmosphere is very nice and the servers were friendly, however we had to wait very long to be able to sit down at the table. I had a reservation for 7:30 PM however my family had to wait until 8:15 to be able to sit down!"

  • "Due to the Reservation, I had no problem to get a seat - other parties has waited more than an hour! The rest of the Story is quick written down: Benihana is Benihana."

  • "We reserve a table for 10 to take Mothers out for Mother's Day. The service was excellent. Our chef was very friendly and on top of his game. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to all my friends, family, church members."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The restaurant was probably a gem; in 1989. Needs a serious remodel. You can tell it was built many years ago before hurricane codes. The floor creaks, confusing stairs, halfway repaired holes in the walls, old carpeting and tile. We sat at the table for half an hour before our chef arrived. The guests next to us ordered some rice from the server while we were waiting; the server was a little too assertive and casuall for my taste, but when chef finally arrived he was the best one I have ever had. My biggest gripe about the food was that i got charged for three bowls of fried rice on the bill for my wife and i. Next time I will stick closer to home and go to the one in miramar."

  • "This was a celebration for 10 year old first recital. It was so loud the people at the end of the table could not hear me when requesting the teapot be passed. Why was the teapot being passed as opposed to 1 for each of the parties (2) To of us never received our white rice. The cook put shrimp on our vegetarian plates. Whether than cause a "scene" we scraped them off, but this is not acceptable! I had ordered a vegetable plate and the other person the TOFU Steaks so there is a hint! Other party at our table were dissatisfied as they had been seated separated from their 12 year olds birthday party. We had an 8:00 reservation and still waited 20 minutes to be seated. "

  • "I was really disappointed with the service overall. The server was difficult to understand, rude and clearly unaware of the menu. The chef perspired all over the food which he also served in the wrong order. Also I was supposed to recieve ice cream and green tea with my meal which the served failed to serve yet charged me for. And last but not least it was a birthday dinner and no one acknowledged it."

  • "We had a reservation for 7:30 but were not seated until 45-50 minutes later. The waitress had a few orders (drinks and dinner) wrong. Another waiter spilled the wine on the table. The cook was obviously tired and and dull. For the amount of money we spent I was expecting a more entertaining and better quality experience. I've been to another location where we had a great dinner with a nice ambiance. I'll never be back to this location!"

  • "It's a great place. It's very popular & busy. But I would expect that if I am making reservations way ahead of time that they can fill it. Twice we have made reservations & requested a specific chef & twice they have let us down. "

  • "Benihana was recommended because of how great the food is. The best part of this experience was our chef/cook, Louis. The waitress was lacking and she constantly forgot our drinks and food items. She was a complete mess and if it was not for Louis, the entire experience would have been poor. To be clear, the service score is for the chef."

I did not get my water view I requested but the restaurant did acknowledge it and apologized. I look forward to my next Benihana meal! "

  • "We tried to get a table between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm and we didn't get it because they were not available. We accepted at 6:00 pm and were surprised by the fact that the restaurant was almost empty with plenty of tables without clients. We saw a very large group,possibly a tour, arrive about 8:30pm.Maybe they were expecting them, but there was plenty of time between 6:30 and 8:30 pm to attend my group of four. Anyway we hadf a wonderful time and enjoyed ambience,service and food. "
