Benihana is the best place to celebrate a birthday with your loved ones. The entertainment chefs are always fun to watch and the food which they cook in front of you, is always cooked to perfection. Love the food, entertainment and their service. We’ve been going to Benihana for years and will continue for many more! 😊 Enjoy!
Awesome first time experience very cool place
I always love to come here but I was bummed about the over booking. We took my in laws for the first time and we waited Over an hour 👎🏼
Your open table site didn’t sync up with the restaurant so every table was double booked. It was a 3 hours dining experience. Service and management could not have been more professional.
Our chef provided the best entertainment out of all the times we’ve been to Benihana. We hadn’t seen many of the “tricks” he did and even my 10 month old couldn’t take his eyes off him! Very friendly. Very skilled. And the food was absolutely perfect. This was the first time I ate my zucchini! (I hate zucchini) my family and I really enjoyed having Ray as our chef!
I went there for a late 14 of February and the food was great . Chef was entertaining and the ambience was perfect .
Our chef wasn’t exactly entertaining, but food was delicious.
We have been celebrating birthdays at Benihana for over ten years. My kids, who are now young adults still love the food and of course our favorite Chef David Fi! He is incredibly funny and entertaining for all ages. I grew up going to the Benihana in Beverly Hills and it's great that we have one here in beautiful Carlsbad. The food is delicious and the chefs make it look so easy to cook, although I can never do it at home. Their signature fried rice is a must and none of us have ever been disappointed with the quality and taste of our various entrees. For a festive and fun dining experience, I highly recommend Benihana for any occasion. They will commemorate your special celebration with a group photo for you to take home. We look back and see our kids growing up each year with their Benihana birthday photo. I look forward to sharing the Benihana birthday experience for many years to come.
food is amazing like always! Pricy but worth the experience.
Manager was very accommodating for my birthday
Everything was perfect! Me and my wife enjoyed our valentines date
Good food, better service than before, or cook this time around is so much better.
Engagement celebration!! Great food great atmosphere!!
Me and my husband always come here to celebrate our birthday or anniversary and it never disappoints. The food is amazing and the chiefs are incredible.
Waitress was one of the worst I’ve ever seen. She made our evening very uncomfortable and everyone was unprepared. The hostess was even rude and didn’t acknowledge us. I prefer the other locations. This was very disappointing.
I wish the check-in staff gave more communication on when and how me and my date would be seated. We made reservations at 7pm but did not get seated until 7:30pm.
I did not know that because my reservation was a party of two, we had to wait until a other couples arrived to fill a whole table/station. Definitely would have liked to be informed about that.
Our server and and chef were exceptional.
Very disappointing! I guess Benihana‘s standards have dropped very very low. Been to better knock offs for less than half the price.
Terrible slow service. This location has the worst service and this will be my last time going here. I had a reservation at 8:15 and was seated at 9:35. Can you imagine? The San Diego location is better and I should have known better as this one has been bad before.
With reservations waited to long and way to many children. Very noisy and very long wait for cook.
Service is horrible.
Almost 1 hr before a chef came to the table to start dinner
And this was with a 4:45 reservation not in the middle of the night when busy
Was 30 min late for reception due to this.
