A word from Benihana - Stuart
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice and dice through mouth-watering steak and tender chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes.
r>Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and temaki sushi, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.Continued

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"

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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "I made reservations for 8:30. I had 2 hungry kiddies and we didn't get sat until 9:20! I understand it's a Friday night but that's just not acceptable. I love their food but having to wait that long ruins the mood."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I have been going to Benihana for years ever since I was a little kid, so I will go easy on the place. The night we went we waited 20 minutes to be sat despite arriving on time for out reservation. We then waited 35 minutes for our chef to come to our table to cook as our waitress told us that they had been very short-staffed lately. The chef was so vapid and miserable I thought he might skewer himself right in front of us. Our food was somewhat bland... and cost a fortune. I will always love Benihana because it can be fun and very good, but unless this location drastically ups its game, it doesn't look like I'll be coming back."

  • "My husband, two children, and I love to dine at Benihana's for special occasions which is why we chose to go there for my 40th B-day. Unfortunately our waitress (Paula) was very rude right from the start and proceeded to humiliate me several times when every time I ordered something and did an upgrade she said "you know that cost extra...you do know you have to pay for that right?" One of the worst dining experiences because of her attitude and it totally ruined the meal for us. But we took the high road and left her a 31% tip. In fact she pointed out the meals comes w/ white rice only so we did order fried rice separate, I wonder why our table mates got their fried rice AND their white rice, but we did NOT receive our white rice."

  • "I came here with my fiance for valentines day and we had an excellent time.The food was beyond excellent. I ordered a well done steak and it was done perfect. She had seafood and that was great except for the calamari. That didn't really taste that good. Overall I am definitely going to come here again and with my family."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I took my girlfriend here for the first time and she loved it. The food was mouth watering and the show was entertaining. After a day of showering her with surprised gift, this dinner was the icing on the cake to end the night on such a romantic day. She kept raving to her friends about the experience and also said its a Valentines Day she will always cherish as far as memories. Thank you benihana for making it a memorable night..."

  • "Monday, January 28th turned out to completely surprise the staff, as they were slammed beyond imagination all night. A fairly new waiter was way overwhelmed and delivered very poor service and forgot to take pic of birthday individual. Ordered filet mignon, got some secondary steak and waited too long for skimpy salad not enough dressing and food not usual good quality."

  • "We had a marvelous time. We come here for family birthdays. We were seated promptly this time which usually doesn't happen so that was a plus. Food was great as always. My only critique was that the servers seemed bored and also the food was prepared in a weird order so that some family members were completely finished eating before others had received their food. That was awkward. Our server who we have had before was excellent"
