4 out of 5 Stars Review
Our chef was "Ely" and he made te experience that much better, the waiter was okay. Could have been more on top of our drink needs, every 15-20 min you would hear someone from the table complaining about their drink. Hence even Ely asked for a drink for a guy at the table to the manager because the waiter was missing in action. All in all very good place, but they need to hire more waiters. I believe our waiter was bombarded with tables making it hard for him to attend everones needs.

Service was great, food was
Service was great, food was delicious and well prepared. Our teppenyaki chef was quite entertaining. The only negative, the yum yum sauce replaced the old reliable (and delicious) mustard sauce. We've been to many Benihana restaurants but this was by far our favorite Benihana experience.

We enjoyed our trip to Benihana
We enjoyed our trip to Benihana in Coral Springs. The waiters were pleasant and helpful and the chef was funny. The service was good. We came as a couple and had to wait for the table to fill out with other people we did not know before we could begin our meal. I guess when you go there you should either go as a group of 6 or 7 or be prepared to meet new people and mingle. Overall a good experience.

A friend of mine suggested this place for my 22nd birthday. The servers were kind and patient, the cook was funny and talented, and the fresh fried rice made in front of us was my favorite part of my meal! Had chicken and steak combo and it came with onion soup as a starter. Everything down to the soup tasted so great. Had a glass of riesling to celebrate. I couldn't have been happier with my experience!

Price is high for what you get
Food is not bad. Service is good and attentive. Cook Show is boring. Cook itself is nice, but can't capture our group attention.

This place is always pretty good. Food is obviously fresh, as its cooked right in front of you. It is a little noisy inside, so if you are expecting a quiet romantic experience, this place isn't for you. Great for birthdays and celebrations. Also have great lunch menu on the weekdays. If you go, you won't be disappointed

This was my first time visiting Benihana and I enjoyed it however, for the price you're paying, the portion sizes was small.

We haven't been in a really
We haven't been in a really long time. At last minute, we made a reservation on Open Tables and went for our 37th Anniversary which I mentioned when making reservation. We were seated early, the service was A-1, as well as the food, and the entertainment in food preparation was so much fun. Although we were at a table with a group of 8 celebrating a graduation, we joined in each other's fun and had a great time. We would definitely recommend for a celebration or just an evening out for dinner. Don't wait for a reason, just go.

A Great Night Out
The restaurant has a very energetic atmosphere. It is a fun place for a group, as well as a great place for a special occassion. The entrees are cooked at the table, which is shared by at least two dining groups, and is a unique experience. There is a great variety of dishes on the menu. Our table loved the filet, scallops, and lobster. There is a great selection of specialty drinks and wine. The service was excellent.

We visited Benihana of Coral Springs with some friends who were "first time visitors" and were in from out of town. We enjoyed our experience so much! The chef was amazing, he made the experience so fun, and the food was great! Looking forward to future dining!

As usual, staff was friendly and entertaining. Food was great!

I brought three ladies to celebrate their birthdays and we enjoyed the whole night. Can't beat the hibachi show!

Good name for hibachi bars
I've been going to hibachi bars for years and this only being my second visit to Benihana, who is to impress, the food was delectible as is there scenery. The waiters/waitresses were friendly and fast. My only negative out of the entire dinner was that our cook wasn't quite up to par with what I've had before, nothing personal with him, he just wasn't quite... Audible. Compared to the chef I've had last time who was a young white male who played a Chinese accent the entire show, was probably one of the best chefs I've ever had, I wish I could remember his name, but he works at the Coral Springs Benihanas, but for any Asian cuisine enthusiast, you should give Benihanas a try.

Great time for 1st visit
I received a gift card for my birthday from my friend. It was my first visit to this type of restaurant . My daughter was visiting and we decided to take her along. We had an absolute blast. Carlos our chef was impressive with his skills. His technique was very exciting. He was very nice and tried to include us in his cooking. I will definitely return in the near future and recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.

Fun Evening Birthday Celebration
Truly enjoyed an evening dinner at Benihana's in Coral Springs celebrating both our our birthdays. Ely, our chef and entertainer, was high skilled, prepared a wonderful meal for all, and was very funny and entertaining. We've had good ones and bad ones before, and the chef really makes or breaks the evening, and he was one of the best! It was a quiet Monday evening, so there was no wait time. We met some lovely folks sitting with us at the table and they all seemed to enjoy the "show" and dinner as much as we did. If you haven't been back to Benihana's in a while, now is the time.

A night to remember

We always love coming to Benihana to celebrate birthdays. They make you feel special and the "show" is fun, the food excellent, and the service accommodating.

My kids took me to Benihana for my 50th birthday....we all had a great time!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
it is benihana
benihana has always been a favorite but the prices are too high. they also always water down thr salade dressing.
the lettuce is also not the best looking. service can be slow as well.

The Chef Makes the Experience
Food was solid, but experience could have been better if a) the chef had spoken even the slightest English and not had gold teeth and b) if it were more clearly stated that fried rice was extra. All the dinners are presented as being "complete" with soup, salad, appetizer, entree, rice, dessert and tea. I'm sure somewhere in tiny print on the menu, it states that fried rice is 3.25 extra a pop, but I didn't see it, and when the server asks if fried rice is o.k., I would think most people assume that it's a choice, not an upgrade. That is very misleading and for a large party, can really add up. especially when you go for the monthly deal or use a coupon, since it's not an inexpensive venture.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was an outstanding experience. The cook was fun and engaging, he had everyone try and throw the leftover shrimp tails into his chef hat! The food was delicious and the show was also very fun to watch! I will most definitely return again! Don't miss out on is experience!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to celebrate
I love that this restaurant always knows how to celebrate. Not only is the show fantastic, they sing to you and also give you a souvenir to take with you for the memories!! :)

3 granddaughters loved the food, entertainment, friendliness

We always celebrate my daughters (2) birthdays at Benihana in Coral Springs. It is their favorite place to dine.
Food is good, staff is attentive and accommodating, food preparation is entertaining, and we always have fun here.
Thanks to all at Benihana, Coral Springs for making our dining experience so enjoyable.

All about the chefs
The chefs were great but unfortunately the server was sub par for the kind of establishment that Benehana's is! After all we felt like our server was an order taker, very little personality, and not very informative, and at times a little pushy not giving us time to look at the menu when we asked, he stood right in front of us as we were trying to see what all was offered so we felt rushed! We probably would have ordered something different but like I stated we felt rushed. The server was not very helpful at all, but being in the industry we left over 20% in the hopes that the server and the chef split the tips! Would like to know if the chefs get tips so next visit I can tip the chef accordingly as well as the server!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my daughter there for her 13 th birthday. The staff was very nice and the food was good. I would definitely recommend to a friend .
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Fun and Food!!!
The chef was awesome, he was polite , he conversated with us and his cooking was the best I have found in all my years eating here! Also, we were put in the back room, which is away from the main resturant and it was perfect! Looking forward to returning again!!!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had 13 people including myself go, they handled us all perfectly! Food was perfect, and the chef was hilarious and very talented. Highly recommended!

Always a good time
Benihana's can be depended on for great food, and a fun atmosphere. Watching the hibachi chef cook your meal in front of you gives new meaning to "dinner and a show." And the casual dress atmosphere makes it a perfect choice for a last-minute night out. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
lobster tails were great. So was the crunchy shrimp roll. Also enjoyed the 8.5 oz filet with mushrooms and garlic butter
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was on point and the people that work there was nice. Will be going back soon.

I was celebrating my birthday with my mom and a friend and it happened to be their first time. This place is great for hanging out with a group of friends. The waitress was very entertaining and made my moms experience a great one. The food was great.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for my birthday. When you sign up on their website, they send you a $30.00 gift certificate for dinner. It seems they were celebrating birthdays at all tables. We had a great waiter. He was there before we could ask for anything. Our chef was friendly as well. Would go back again.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our experience very much. The food and atmosphere was great. We will be back

B'day at Benihana
Thursday evening- arrived with reservation, seated promptly, friendly server who made us feel comfortable for a delightful meal which was prepared tableside by a chef as per their practice. Fun to watch and very enjoyable to eat.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun and Great Dinner too!
Our group of 9 went to the Coral Springs BeniHanna for dinner to celebrate a birthday. We really like this restaurant and have been there many times. This visit was probably our best, as the chef, Miguel, really engaged the children and made the evening more enjoyable.

Chef artistry versus fare
Clearly the main reason to eat at the Hibachi table at Benihana is to watch the creativeness and artistry of the chef. It is a show worth seeing, especially if you are fortunate enough to have chef with an outgoing personality with a vibrant sense of humor. I was that fortunate. While the food was generally good, Benihana would risk the food being old hat if it were not for the memorable chefs who prepare it. Avoid sitting at standard tables that don't allow you to witness this event.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I visit Benihana at least once or twice a month rather it be for lunch or dinner and every time is great. The food is great the cook is great it's just a very enjoyable experience.

We went to Benihana for dinner as a birthday treat during a weekday night. Reservations were very easy to make. We walked in and were taken right away. The waiter was very attentive and we ordered a bottle of wine. We had the steak and chicken combination which was very tasty. The bill was about $100 and was a great evening.

Service was excellent both
Service was excellent both from the chef and waiter. I did not feel like they were pressed to move on to the next diner. Both were extremely courteous and efficient. I hope they get compensated accordingly. I enjoyed the variety of healthy choices.
