A word from Benihana - Miramar
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!

    The overall experience was positive...but it was a rainy day and when you walk in the smell I am guessing from the carpeting put a damper on the experience. I always check the bathrooms before dining because if the bathrooms are clean you can expect the rest of the place will follow suit.. The chef was excellent and entertaining and the food was good. But I suggest pulling out the carpeting and putting in tile.

    My experience was not so well..I was having a surprise birthday dinner with a party of 14 for my fiancé and the staff refused to sit my party because 2x people of the party wasn't present (myself, who was surprising my fiancé and my fiancé, who's surprise dinner it was).. I thought that this establishment ruined the surprise and didn't set a warm environment for my party.. The waitress also severely delayed bringing out the birthday cake for my party, we didn't receive it until we were ready for the checks.. I would never have a birthday dinner at this establishment again..

    Made a 9:00pm reservation, got there at 8:40 and check in, at 9:05 I ask the manager when would we be seated, he check the waiting list and told me "I didn't check in" and I told him "then how did I get a pager from hostess station" he had no answer for me. Finally we got seated at 9:16. Our server was ok. She was slow and after being seated we did not see her for 15 minutes, Throughout the meal we barley saw her. The only thing that saved our dining experience was Nu our chef, He was entertaining, friendly & cook a great dinner! So to recap, incompetent hostess, a manger accuses me of lying & subpar server. The only reason I would give the restaurant another chance was our awesome chef Nu and the great food.

    It took more 10 mins just to get a waitress. On top of that the waitress was very slow in bringing drinks or anything requested. The food was not all that great. Feels like the chef didn't want to cook that night. Usually come to Benihana in miramar but don't think I'm coming back. Very disappointed

    My visit on July 7th was an introductory visit to Benihana's and it was an unforgettable one. I felt warm and welcome from the second I arrived. Being as though it was my birthday, our chef Henry made sure he kept a smile on my face and stood still for my endless picture snapping. My birthday song and Japanese remix was amazing, although the performers could have been more 'hype'. One last suggestion is to offer a mini-lesson on how to use chop sticks, I was struggling. Overall, phenomenal first impression and I will definitely return for future visits. P.S. The seafood and vegetable sauce blew my mind!! Yummy :)

    Being that I frequent this restaurant, I would have to say the service has been declining over the last few months. The waitress only came to the table three times. Once to set us and take drink orders, once to take food orders and the last time she appeared to be rushing us to dine, being that she brought carry out containers even prior to the cook finishing our meal and this was at 9pm not closing. We had to ask another waitress for beverage refills.

    My daughter and I took my mom there for her birthday. We wanted an interesting experience. It was clean and neat. Nothing outstanding about the establishment itself. It looked like what it was, a decent food chain restaurant. Our waiter Alex was professional & attentive. He was nice. Our chef (also named Alex) was charming & fun and he helped make the afternoon a pleasant one. The food is good and the portions are generous. The filet mignon I had was so tender it could be cut with a spoon. The food is average Japanese fare though the onion soup was delicious enough to stand out.

    Everyone knows Benihana. It is pricey, but you are paying for the show as they cook in front of you. The food was great and the waiter was attentive. However, the meal was doomed due to the fact that the hostess had annoyed me as we entered the restaurant. We had a reservation for 5:30, and we arrived at 5:15. The host table told me that we would be at the next table available. To my shock, other groups were being seated in front of us, so I inquired, and they said I was the next table. This repeated four times and we were finally seated at 6:30 (so much for the reservation). I asked for the manager, and he gave us free appetizers and a 20% discount for the inconvenience.
