A word from Benihana - Stuart
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!

  • "We had a great time. I mentioned my son's birthday on my reservation and was delighted that they sang to him, brought a special dessert, and even took and printed a photo of our group for him. As always, the food and service was excellent and the view can't be matched. There's nothing like enjoying an Exotic Mojito and watching dolphins swim by!"

  • "My husband I are big fans of hitachi/teppan yaki style dining. though we know the food we be the same at most places, the entertainment is what we really go for. Our visit to Benihana in Stuart left me disappointed and I think from now on we will stick to the smaller Japanese places and not a chain. The chef just looked bored and had very little interaction with our table. food was cooked perfectly though. in the middle of eating a bus person was vacuuming right behind me for a good 5 minutes! this is really gross! After finding a piece of hair in my veggies I was just done. Beautiful scenery and view but I would definitely not return."

  • "The waitress since the begining was extremely rude, the noise in the table next to us was extremely loud, the waitress just want ends us to leave we were planning on going back the 13 or 14 of August to celebrate a 15 year old birthday but we will think 5 times before, the waitress brought us the ice cream before the extra fried rice we order, the only time she was kind of nice was when she brought the check and we were so upset because we loved this restaurant that we always live good tips but we only left 2 dollars, we were going to complain withh the manager but we didn't want to create a scene. What we thought it was going to be a great experience was terrible because of the attitude of the attitude of the waitress. The chef was great."

  • "The chef was talented. Entertaining. I thought my teenage nephews and my brother would enjoy the experience. My husband ordered a bottle of wine. Our server poured the wine. We ordered our meals. The next pour was dumped into our glasses almost to the top. The bottle was completely vertical. Ugh. The food was prepared perfectly. Delish. Two minutes after we began eating our server returned to the table and asked us if we needed Togo boxes. I snapped. 'How can we possibly know at this point?' Embarrassing. There was no reason to rush us like that. I will try Benihana again, but I better not experience that again."

  • "This is our favorite place to go when we have guests in town, or just when we want a romantic evening out. Food is outstanding, the ambience is great. The chefs are entertaining and very good at their jobs. Server staff have been marvelous each time we have gone. My husband tried for years to get me to go to this restaurant. I do not like anything new, and like very few differant types of foods. Once I ate here one time, I rarely ask to go anywhere else."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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. "

  • "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."

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!"
