Fun for everyone!
Benihana's is a great place to celebrate birthdays and special occasions for the young and old. Our grandson's (ages 8 and 10) look forward to birthday dinners with grandma and grandpa at the Teppan table and watch with excitement as the chef goes about preparing a wonderful meal. We recommend Benihana's to anyone who loves good food and a fun atmosphere.

Visit to Benihana
Our party of 3 had both meat and fish dishes. The Land and Sea was good and the Imperial Steak and the Chateaubriand were excellent. The place was very crowded and we had to wait about 10 minutes even with a reservation, but the staff were all working hard under the busy conditions and did a good job keeping all patrons happy. We usually go to Benihana a few times each year and will certainly continue.

The food is always the best but this time the chef was not every into the show and the waitresses were very slow.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was great to be able to enjoy the food within an alotted time for lunch

We had a nice family dinner planned for our son who was moving away to college. It was his first time at Benihanas and it turned out to be an awesome, REALLY fun, yummy dinner. Our server was very attentive and made us all feel welcomed and well taken care of. Our chef was great and very creative with his presentation. I have been to Benihana's several times, and other locations, and he by far was the best! He interacted well with all the different ages seated at our table and had us all laughing. The food was served just as we asked and was really good and fresh. Thank you Benihanas you made this family have a memorable evening!

Great For Special Events
We celebrated our sons birthday. The staff was very attentive. Our chef had a great personality and was very entertaining
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a Great Dinner!
Their garlic chicken rice is to die for! Great ambiance and skillful chefs make the dinner a show as well as a feast!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still a favorite
As my 15-yr old daughter says, "This place never gets old." Same great food and show you expect.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun evening with my boys
The food is always great and we all have our favorites on the menu. Its becoming a tradition to celebrate the summer birthdays and my son leaving soon to go back up to college. We all look forward to the fun and yummy dinner. You have the best chicken fried rice our families favorite!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoy Benihana food. The fried rice is to die for. I have went to other tepan style restaurants but none can make that signature Fried Rice!!!

Made A Birthday Really Special!
We were greeted like we were expected and seated immediately. Our special occasion could not have been nicer. Great dining experience with great service. Prices were very good and nobody left hungry-Lots of food.
Thank you for your service!!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
great happening place. Only problem
you won't get seated until the others sharing the table arrive.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wr celebrated our birthdays and the birthday special has become a tradition.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Celebration Go-To!
Our family always chooses this restaurant for any special occasion. The menu has something for everyone, the atmosphere is very festive & fun, and if you register on their website, you receive a coupon for $30 during your birthday month!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food with a Flair!
Great place to celebrate a special birthday by combining entertainment with the preparation of your food. The chef will prepare various menu options at the same time and provide entertainment in the process. Remember to pay attention to the chef so that you get the full effect of the evening. Definitely choose the Chicken Fried Rice (don't go boring with the steamed rice) as the flavor is awesome and the garlic butter adds the extra flavor kick you need. Come prepared to relax and enjoy this dining experience!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always look forward to getting together with family for birthday dinners at Benihana!!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and entertainment!
Benihana is consistently a wonderful experience. I have been fortunate enough to have some of the best tepan chefs whenever I have visited. This last time we were very lucky to have Ramon cook for us. Not only is he one of the fastest and most brilliant of chefs I have ever seen, he entertained us thruout the whole dining experience with both his phenomenal chef skills and quirky sense of humor. I would definitely request whenever we return. We were also treated to a very nice conversation from their manager at the end of the evening, who explained some of the Benihana history and changes thruout the years. We left feeling more than satisfied on every count and will be back again.....and again.....and again!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
My son wants to go go Benihanna every year for his birthday. The food is good and the atmosphere is perfect for a family get together. I think brunch has faster service than dinner.

FUN FUN FUN
Took my friend's daughter for her 16th birthday with her 3 friends. We had a great time after a day of shopping in LA. The "show" was entertaining and the food wonderful. They accommodated the gluten free request of one of the girls that was in our group.
All in all, a fabulous evening!

We went there for an anniversary dinner and although we were seated on time for our reservation, I think other people at our table had to wait a long time to be sat. Luckily for us, we got our drinks and appetizers comped! The staff was very attentive, always making sure our drinks were filled and when I accidentally ordered my steak done the wrong way, the chef was very accommodating and cooked it for a little longer. It was a great night and the staff at Benihana's were wonderful.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service is good but it is the show as the chef prepares the food at the table that makes it worthwhile. When we tried Benihana the first time, the idea of sharing a table with strangers was a bit off putting but we have never been disappointed.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always love, love, love the food, especially the egg fried rice. I added chicken to my egg fried rice for $1 more at lunch, but will not add it next time because it was a very small amount, and the rice is great without it. Wouldn't recommend dining too many times within a year because I think the "jokes" like the onion volcano could get a little tiresome. But it's like going on the Jungle ride at Disneyland...you know the jokes are coming but you enjoy them anyway :-)

Entertainment & Dinner
We took my dad to celebrate his 87th birthday. Great fun & food. Best place to celebrate birthdays!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really Great Experience
We were celebrating a Birthday and the atmosphere was very energetic. We had an outstanding time! The chef who entertained us was fantastic! My 8 yr old loved it! It comes without a doubt Highly Recommended!!

Fun, lively Japanese
We recently celebrated a family birthday at the Newport Benihana. It's been about a year since we were there and I am happy to report the restaurant has been updated and refreshed with good result. The service was outstanding from the moment we were greeted, to the birthday surprise and souvenir family photo. The food was fresh and beautifully prepared by a very engaging chef on the Japanese-style grill at our table. The ventilation is excellent, but I recommend a light sweater as it can get a bit cool at the table. We will be back soon with or without a special occasion, because eating here is its own celebration!

Fun for Birthdays
Fun place to go for birthdays and other occasions, always energetic and the food is always consistently good.
Good value for money also.

Great place to celebrate!
Our entire experience was amazing from beginning to end. Our reservation was right on time and our waitress and chef were great! Can't wait to go back!

The show is always fun. The
The show is always fun. The was tasty as usual but the entrees were a bit overcooked.

Delicious food, excellent service, and our chef, Roberto, was so much fun!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ah So Good!!!
We have been to the restaurant for many years for special occasions. Always good food and fun time.

friends night out
This is the place to go to celebrate birthdays. Chief Andy was very good at entertaining and cooking a great meal.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
From start to finish, we had an excellent birthday dinner.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love Benihana's for special occasions, minus if you get sat with a group that has children. Overall great service and killer food. Benihanas can get quite pricey so it wouldn't be just a Mon-Thurs night dinner for me, more for on the weekend or celebrating a Birthday. (Don't forget to sign-up for the Benihana Chef Club and you will get a $30 coupon for dinner!)
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I LOVE Benihana. Just wish
I LOVE Benihana. Just wish I didn't smell like oil when we leave.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My adult children and I had a very fun dinner experience, our chef was really good
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food with Performance Art
I go to Benihana once every few years and always enjoy it but the patter by the Teppan Chefs is getting to be like the spiel in Disneyland's Jungle Ride. The energy of the chef is everything.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
FIlet and Lobster perfect as always
The Deluxe treat is always my favorite. Chefs here really know what they are doing, food is superb and so much flavor, the ambiance is fun and energetic.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love to go to Benihana for special occasions. The kids love watching their food being prepared. And parents get good food and yummy drinks.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Benihana's is a great place to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant gives a coupon for a free dinner for the birthday person on its website. Chefs are very skilled and entertaining, and they don't throw the shrimp at you, a big plus. Food is always good and a fun place for kids too.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Paying it forward
My husband and I had a lovely dinner with five strangers and their was full table across form us celebrating their daughters 4th birthday. When we went to pay our check the waitress said it had been taken care of by an anonymous patron. We all set their with our mouths open for a while and then the waitress gave it away that it was the four year olds father. What a lovely surprise! I think I will carry on the surprise and do the same thing someday. Pay it forward.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always, the food is terrific, but our chef, Aurelio, was the main event. His knife-playing, shrimp-in-the-hat catching, and overall wizardry was very entertaining. As it was an anniversary, we were eager to get the photo, and the digital copy is a cool techie advance. Thanks for a fun lunch.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love Benihana
Benihana is a fun unique experience that is great for kids birthdays. My son loves taking his friends there every year and then we go to the ducks hockey game. I love the fried chicken rice. Thanks Beni.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's always such fun to go to Benihana. We love to visit with the other guests at our table and enjoy the show!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
We drove over 2 hours to meet up with family for birthday dinner. All that we expected it to be. The Chef absolutely made the dinner fabulous. Made a fried rice heart.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good times with friends
I absolutely love this restaurant, its a bit pricey but its a great place to meet friends.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I'm a fan of prime steaks and spicy foods. Here I was able to get both. An excellently cooked filet mingon and a spicy chicken fried rice. The server was good and the cook very interactive with the group great place to take a wife/girlfriend on a date.
