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 Staff was not very pleasant and a bit rude. I arrived 15 min early and did not really honor my reservation. They said they had a lot of walk Ins. They said they would sit me first but it did not happen I still waited 20 additional minutes until I questioned them .

    The food was excellent, it is cooked right at your table and the chef was very polite and entertaining. Very nice atmosphere. The area/table around the cooking are sits ten persons so if your party is less than ten you get to meet other people. Very nice atmosphere for kids as the chef not only entertains the adults, but also provides a fun time for kids. My family and I have eaten at Benihana, various locations, for many years and have NEVER had a bad experience. Highly recommend!

    The food was good but our hibachi chef was serving our food before we got our appetizers even though we asked him twice to wait until our appetizers came before he started cooking the hibachi meal. we were celebrating a birthday and they did bring a complimentary dessert. the quality of the food was very good. as we were finishing our meal three different people visited our table to ask if everything was okay but we felt we were being rushed to leave as other diners were waiting. we were not lingering it had only been about 3 minutes since the desserts had been finished.

    We go to this Benihana two times per month. Service has been on a downward spiral at this location. Set the scene: Firday afternoon, 3:45pm open table reservation, place is dead! Sat down, ordered immediately with just us three at the table. Then another couple arrives. Then ANOTHER couple arrives. We think, ok cool, efficiency right? Get as many people at the table as possible. Then the later couple decides, "oh, we wanna sit at the bar". OK, they leave. The other couple orders. Then the couple that left were ALLOWED to come back to the table. They sat back down. Long story short, 15 minutes AFTER we ordered we still were not served soup or salad. We left, probably will not go back to Benihana again, hello Mom and Pop Hibatchi joints!

    Server was excellent but the chef left much to be desired. Made the rice first, so we ate that while we waited for the meat, got filled up on the rice so we weren't really hungry by the time the veggies and meat arrived. Also the rice got cold by the time the meat arrived. And he was not the least bit entertaining. No interaction with us.

    Great food and you get to have your chef prepare it in front of you with a knife-wielding show to boot. Only been to Benihana twice, but I like it, and the large Habashi tables are great for larger groups.

    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.
