Diner Reviews
  • "I had a great time. The food was exceptional. The Cook was great...very personable and fun."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The atmosphere is amazing but the food was not. The only part we really enjoyed was the meat. They charge 3.50 a person for fried rice. The white rice that is offered was awful. Dry and sticky. You get a sliver of zucchini and a couple mushrooms. Would not go back or recommend to anyone."

  • "Love the service in this restaurant! Responsive and friendly! Also loved the convenience of making reservations online. The food is fresh and delicious. My only critique would be the chicken was a little chewy. Maybe needed marinating? Even though, my meal was delicious and filling. It's such a fun place to go for birthdays of all ages! The view is spectacular!!"

  • "Our visit to Benihana was once again fantastic. The food was spectacular, service very good, and the Chef was entertaining. One suggestion would be to somehow offer discount coupons to your repeat customers. Clients that continually pay top dollar and are repeat customers,deserve some form of recognition: Half-price on second meal, free drink for two, priority table reservation on line, something. Everyone likes to be appreciated and I think this is something that needs to be implemented."

  • "Chef was good,however,the "server" did not serve,just handed stuff over the hot grill and required diners to reach over and get their own food. Perhaps Benihana did not train this employee and he seemed ignorant of the proper way to serve at a restaurant"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "It's our 3rd visit with kids and the second time we have to wait 45 Minutes At the table , because there are not enough cooks! Little kids were restless and bored not to mention hungry!!! Food is ok , the "show" is fun. Place is very cold , bring a sweater. And you will have to wash your clothes immediately after you leave because the smell is very strong"

  • "Benihana's always delivers a great meal and interesting table-side cooking by experienced chefs. The lunch menu offers a great value for about 40% less than you would pay at dinner time. The Stuart location has incredible views of the Inter-coastal Waterway and the numerous times we have visited we have always received outstanding service. The food is good and plentiful as well. Nice place to take company or celebrate a special occasion. Lunch is not as crowded and as mentioned an excellent value."

  • "I had an amazing experience! Our waitress went above and beyond and Chef Samuel was amazing! This was my first time at Benihana and it was even better than I expected it to be! Thanks for the great experience :) I'm definitely coming back again soon!"

    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The food was good. Even with prior reservations and notification of food allergies the chef was not prepared. Luckily we were able to see what the chef was doing and corrected him numerous times during the night to avoid a hospital visit. We have eaten there once before and the chef was excellent about the allergies. It's a crap shoot to get a knowable chef about allergies. The plates were greasy. The service was good. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "But when having a nice dinner with the family it might be nicer if the other guests at our table and around us were dressed nicer. Two of the tables (one of them at ours) had men wearing shirts with cut off sleeves. I appreciate the casual environment in south florida but it should still be done in good taste. "

  • "This visit was for my daughter's elementary graduation and she had never been here before. She was completely amazed by the chef and when he served her rice she had no idea he had been cooking for us the whole time! Her reaction was priceless! We brought a cake and the came out singing which I did not expect. I have no idea what they were saying but the entire experience was absolutely wonderful. It was a mid-afternoon reservation for 4 and the bill was only $60 which is very reasonable for the experience we all have to cherish. The staff was very accommodating and attentive. Cannot wait for our next special occasion because this is our new "Special Occasion" place. "

  • "The tables are not good for 10 people. We were too cramped. Eight is the most that should be at a table. "

  • "Dinner at Stuart Benihana is almost always a fun time. The food is good and the chefs we usually get are entertaining."
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "To be honest, we were a little apprehensive from the moment we walked in the door. Not that our experience was bad, just that our overall experience was "different". There were 3 hosts at the door and warmly greeted us. Our reservations were for 3pm on Easter Sunday and it was our 16th wedding anniversary. We arrived 10 minutes early and the host said we could either sit downstairs at the bar or sit over to the left and wait. So we sat downstairs at the bar, watched the men make sushi and looked out the windows to the beautiful view of the river. Benihana also has a beautiful garden right outside. Outstanding food, chef was entertaining and fun, and for our anniversary they provided us a wonderful ice cream dessert. We'll be back!"

  • "I have always lived the great food at Benihana's here in Stuart. However, the one thing I noticed during this experience was the amount of up charges their menu now has. Now that there are several hibachi grills around town I can go to them order my meal and not be charged an extra $3.50 for fried rice which is part of the show experience. Also we were offered a better choice in steak but never told of the additional $9.00 up charge on top of the rice up charge. My advice for anyone who goes bring your wallet. The food is good, their is a lack of vegetables that are served to you as well though. Unfortunately it will be a long time before I go back if I even do. With others in town I get more for my money."

  • "We have had a wonderful dining experience several times with our Meetup group. The cooking table chef each time was enjoyable as well as the time sequence between each course. It gave our members time to chat."

  • "Love watching how they cook the food in front of you! Amazing food that never disappoints"

  • "The food, ambience and service were excellent. Only small area of improvement would be to ask prior to seating if joining another group would be acceptable."

  • "We celebrated our friends birthday at Benihana's, and we could not have had a better time. From the host staff that greeted us at the door, to the bartender who took good care of us while waited for all of party to arrive, our server Mario, and fun, talented chef Mike all together made a memorable night and my friends best birthday she has ever had. Thank you to whole staff!"

  • "I am really disappointed that we took my daughter for her birthday and I forgot the coupon at home and when I tried to ask them if they would take it after they said they couldn't. They said I could use it till the end of the month but we can't go back based on the fact that we spent $150 and were moving and can't go back that soon. Camen"

  • "This was the second time to dine for lunch in one month. The first time I wanted to take my sister in law from Italy someplace special. And this was the place. The food, service, chef, show was fantastic. She took so many pic I think she was hired by them to photograph for a magazine Second time my girl friend and I went for a treat to ourselves. Again everything was super. I could eat there once a week. The soup and salad are to die for. The chef was funny and expert in his cooking and flavoring of each item he prepared for us. I love everything about this restaurant. Next time I will have to have a fancy drink in the special decanters. Maybe the Budda!"

  • "There is just something special about Benihana of Stuart. Maybe it's the scenic location in Sewalls Point between the bridges, maybe it's the zen garden on the shores of the St. Lucie River. But I know it is because of the FOOD! Outstanding fresh cuisine cooked right in front of you in a dazzling display of teppan magic. A wonderful place to celebrate special occasions so bring the whole family. Don't forget about the sushi bar downstairs. Great happy hour specials and they will bring the sushi orders to your table upstairs as well. Always tops on our list of favorite local restaurants. Enjoy."

  • "Had a great company lunch today. The food was very good, as usual. Made a late Open Table reservation (20 minutes prior) so they hadn't yet viewed the reservation and we had to wait about 25 minutes - but overall it was a fun lunch."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "This was my first time there and I would like to come back again. Due to the location it is an hour away so it will be a once or twice a year special occasion outing"

  • "We have been dining at this Benihana's for almost 25 years. The food is always wonderful as are the chefs and dining staffs. Host staff by the front door...never been pleasant! Used to always have a very long wait, no matter what your reservation was made for, but that seems to have improved in the last year or so."

  • "Went for a birthday dinner with friends. excellent happy hour in the lounge while we waited for table, prompt service, very accommodating. perhaps a little faster pace then I would've liked. food was excellent ! our hibachi chef was very low key, did not interact at all. Other table guests were very nice. Our food did not get served at the same time, my scallops were done and cold by the time my friends got their steak. Still a great evening! I'd go back and hope for same time dining and a livelier chef!"
