good but pricey
The food was very tasty and the staff very nice, but the price was too high to justify going very often. I checked the menu ahead of time, so I wasn't surprised by the price, but I would go alot more if the price was 30-40% lower. As it is, I probably won't go again now that I've experienced it.

Good Food with entertainment
You know you are going to get an entertaining show when you have your dining experience and even though I expected the corny jokes, I actually found myself laughing and clapping at the showmanship with knives and other utensils. Benihana offers a very generous birthday reward and does not slight you in any way with the food quality, service, etc. when using the reward. I was surprised how busy this restaurant was on a Monday night which is a testament to its popularity. All the tables were full and thus the noise level was pretty high. The food preparation was skillfully done and we enjoyed every bite.

Great Time ForAll
What a nice experience. There for a birthday dinner. All the food is great and prepared in such a way that is unique to the dining industry . Brought a complimentary desert for celebration and took a picture that they framed and gave to us. Great overall experience.

I've been here before and had very energetic chefs that really include the guests..unfortunately I did not quite have the same luck this time. The food was good, but I was looking for the experience everyone knows. Also, i was sitting on top of another guest, because they crammed so many of us at one table.

Benihana's has been an icon
Benihana's has been an icon for decades. The food is delicious, service is very good and the chef entertainment is magical. If you want a quiet romantic evening meal with your favorite partner, this is not the place. The noise level is high.

It had been a long time since
It had been a long time since I had been to this restaurant, it was better than I remembered. My kids are all 16+ and all 3 liked the food and the evening very much. The tuna was a winner! The salmon was good as well as the steak and chicken dishes we had.The staff was friendly and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant.

Another wonderful night at Benihana! Very entertaining and the freshest ingredients prepared right in front of you. Love their filets and their scallops! Yum.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for birthday celebration. Great spot for families and children esp. The kids got a lot attention from the Chef. The restaurant was very busy and a bit noisy. But, we all had a good time. The food preparation is very good. Try the combos. Good value for the money. You get soup, salad, appetizer, entre with veggies and dessert and tea. We ordered the fried rice-delicious.

My second time to Benihana's
My second time to Benihana's and as the first time...it was most entertaining. My daughter has never eaten any type of seafood, but the way the shrimp was grilled, she ate a piece and ended up eating a whole order. Two of our guest were from Oklahoma and had never been to this type of establishment. They cannot wait to get back home to talk about their experience
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent and the chef was fantastic. He was funny and engaging to all the people at the table.

Excellent Service / Great Show
We rented a limo which was 30 min late and put us past our reservation time. On a busy Fri night we were still seated as soon as we entered the door. We had anticipated having to wait but the hostess was extremely accomodating. The kids really enjoyed the food prep on the grill right in front of us. The food was great and our cook was awesome. Definitely a great place fir all occasions and plenty of variety for everyone.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always take our kids to celebrate birthdays at Benihana and this year didn't disappoint! Thanks to Jose for making dinner so special for the little ones.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best food in town
The food is fansastic!!! The cooks are funny and my family and I will be back.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a very nice lunch! I celebrated my birthday there and they celebrate with you by singing and ice cream and a photo to remember! The food was delicious and our chef was very energetic and funny! Loved it! Will be going back soon!

Great Place for a Special Occasion
Benihana proves it is a great spot to celebrate no matter which city you are celebrating in. We chose to eat at the Benihana-Denver as a way to celebrate my daughter's entrance into the University of Denver. The food was excellent and the service was great.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not my first time at this
Not my first time at this restaurant, it is always a fun and tasty dining experience.

It was very enjoyable. good food but pretty noisy. Individual conversation was not so easy.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and entertainment
The food being prepared at your table and the chef entertaining you while preparing the food is fun to watch.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had never been to Benihana's before. But we had some expectations since we are a fan of Japanese food and lived in Japan for 6 years. Food was fresh and tasted great. Service was superb - friendly, fast, and extremely competent. It was a special occasion for my wife and I - our 44th anniversary. Got a ice cream sunday to split and they took our picture! It was expensive but they delivered! It was certainly worth it. The only negative was no Japanese background music.

Birthday Dinner blast
Atmosphere was vibrant and full of energy.....the host was attentive and on point the entire night. The chef for our table was energetic and entertaining.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
They listen to their patrons
I have been to the Denver Benihana off Hampden several times over the last 15 years. Each time I have made a suggestion and on my next visit it had been incorporated. And in many cases these were not inexpensive suggestions.
This last visit was for my birthday and the manager bent over backwards to make it perfect.
The chef's are excellent and every meal is a wonderful experience. Great for birthday parties, impressing your partner, and kids. Will go back whenever possible.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Birthday Ever
I have never been to a restaurant that can provide such a fun birthday experience. But aside from birthdays, it's just a great place to enjoy.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just another great evening
We have been going to Benihanna for over 25 years for all different occasions and for just good food and good times. This visit was for our family getting together again and as usual it was tasty, entertaining and overal a memorable experience.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere is friendly and fun with good food and service.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A fantastic Birthday Dinner!
I've loved Benihana for the past ten years. The Denver location is fantastic. While they've been there forever, they've updated the interior and the neighborhood has really improved over the past couple years. We went for my birthday and brought my birthday coupon, The chef was fantastic and cheerful, and the waiter was excellent at keeping our drinks full, explaining the perks of the menu, and bringing the check.
The food is beautiful, and their mustard sauce is amazing. I recommend getting the chicken fried rice, it's delicious, and lighter than you'd expect. I also love their clear onion soup.
I give them five out of five. Awesome dinner experience!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Two thumbs up
My girlfriend had never been, so I took her and she loved it! She said it was so much fun.... Great place
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is great. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary. It was perfection. We had a lady and 4 teenage kids at our table and they made it a fun evening. We are planning to go again when our son gets home from college at Christmas, can hardly wait for that day.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite place to go
We love Benihana. It is always fun and always great service. The food is always delicious and we especially love the sushi bar. Great place to go all around.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable evening. Food was great as always and staff were attentive and friendly. Always enjoy going to Benihana. Will go again and recommend to others.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The steak was high quality, the portions were large, the service was excellent.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent but pricey
Excellent but pricey - be aware. We took our daughter and 7 other people out for dinner to celebrate her birthday. It cost over $350.00. A fun night but very expensive. The total kind of snuck up on us. There are a lot of add-ons.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
No Open Table Credit given
Our reservation was honored fairly quickly. Plan to eat with kids, yours and/or someone else's unless you take 6 other friends with you to fill a table of 8. Noisy. Lively chefs and plenty of food. Wine list is good and mixed drinks are pretty and tasty. My driver's license was requested by the waitress and taken from me for about 5 minutes making me wonder if it was being copied when the
birthday coupon issued by Benihana was requested at the beginning of the meal.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food portions were better than last time we went. Fresh, tasty and entertaining for the kids and adults. We had a great time and went away full.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good time
Benihana is a Japanese Hibachi restaurant -- meaning, chefs cook the food on a grill in front of a table of 8. The chefs show off tricks and skills while they cook -- even using a spatula to send food flying in to your open mouth. It is a lot of fun for everyone -- especially kids. The food tastes good -- but they use a lot of butter, oil and salt. The chefs have become less skilled over the years but it's still a fun night out. We go 6 times a year --- for our birthdays and when grandparents come to visit!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistent very good quality
I haven't been to the restaurant (on Tamarac St.) for ages (I'd say more than 8 years). I'm impressed with consistent quality in their food. The hibachi steak tasted just like I remember it and so does the pina colada, which is one of the best I've had. They have renovated the reception area and makes it more open & have more seating for waiting area. The (cooks') entertainment hasn't changed a bit, which can be good, but can also be boring for regulars. Overall, it is worth the prices.

It was fun for a girls night
It was fun for a girls night out and the food and service were great!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food excellent, but it's not a place you just drop in. Get reservations, a little expensive but excellent for that special occasion. Kinda loud inside so it's not really for the "quiet romantic dinner". I would go again in a heartbeat.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice restaurant for large
Nice restaurant for large parties--up to eight--and for kids. Entertaining for kids and adults.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for a birthday dinner. We had a great chef, He made the meal entertaininig. im Not a seafood fan, but I tried some and it was pretty good. I had the steak...tender, and flavorful. I will go back again!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been enjoying your restaurant for years and hope to continue into the future. The atmosphere is very entertaining and kids love it! (the - onion - train that turns into a volcano...(-:
