Benihana - Coral Gables
Went to celebrate my husbands birthday and had made my reservations online had made a comment about how not to say that our table was for 4 and they followed the instructions and i was so happy that was able to surprise my husband. We enjoyed our food and enjoyed our waiter. Overall we had a great time. Thank you. We will definitely be back.
Benihana is always delicious at a great value.
Good food and happy place. Service was very good with a smile.
Waitress was Terrible. The Chef and food where excellent. 2nd time here and both times service was very slow. Had to beg to get dishes removed and had to beg to get refills.
The service was outstanding, he handled all our needs. The food was okay for the price. You really just paying for the name.
Reservations made it easy and quick to be seated. The app is definitely worth it.
The server was less than attentive and forgot some items like the dipping sauce. She apologized but it was too late to fix. She was missing for most of the meal and never refilled water glasses or checked if we had enough of everything. She also only served tea after we asked for it. She stated it was served after the meal but I have had green tea with my meal in every other Benihanas. SHe stated it went with dessert. The food was great!
As always, dining at Benihana is a blast. Not only the service is great, the food is amazing and the interaction with the Chef makes this dining experience unique. If you haven't try dining at Benihana, I truly recommend it.
Horrible..bad service..all Spanish speaking people..Build that wall please
I’ve been in other locations and the chefs are really good. In coral gables not that much. I like the show I’m use to see in Benihana. Here they only cook in front of me.
Customer service needs improvement. Not enough waiters. Understaffed.
Excellent Food and Service. I recommend it to anyone for a nice dinner/lunch with family.
The service at this Benihana was by far the best service we had at any Benihanas. We usually go to Benihanas twice a month for the past 2 years all throughout the State and the experienced we had on this visit was the best. I recommend coming in early if you are dining with hungry kids.
Everything was amazing and I really enjoy the food. My father enjoys the fried twice and even asked for more...It is a great place to celebrate any kind of event!!!
(It my boyfriend and I graduation events!)
Douglas was great even we kept modified our food..The server (I think his name is Mitchell) was great and smiling all the time.( real smile not fake one)
Happy to went there with my family and friends!!!
I went with two of my friends and it was amazing. Initially, I was skeptical because we were sat with other people since my party only had 3 people. It was quite funny because one of my friends is French, and the table we sat at were also French. But the chef was amazing. And it was alot of fun, and I love how everything is cooked in front of you. ❤
Still one of my favorite restaurants. Good food. Great staff
We had to wait over 35 minutes event though we had reservations for 7 and basically take up our own table. They asked us to wait in this area with bar top tables but there is no bar and no one asked if we wanted drinks. Finally, after having to ask several times they finally seated us but then the service didn’t get any better. It was so loud in the restaurant the waiter thought I ordered Ichiban when I said Lychee Blossom for my drink. He eventually brought me the right drink but they ran out of martini glasses and had to serve it in a regular glass. Then it took another 20 min for our chef to finally come out and we have two school age children in our group who had to get to bed early. Chef cooked ok (rice needed more salt) but did absolutely no tricks with shrimp or anything special for my birthday aside from the boring smoking onion volcano. Waiter never came by to order more drinks. Then it took forever to get our cake out (my boyfriend had to go get someone and even then it took a while). Overall the food was good but the service was awful and it took too damn long!!! No one even offered to take our group pic - we had to do a selfie. Benihana needs to really step it up!
Outstanding as usual! We had our favorite chef Oscar who cooks my wife's meals exactly like she likes them. One of our favorite places to eat in Miami.
All good,just a little over price.
Food and servers were great!
The family seated at our table were a little obnoxious , kids playing drums on plates with chop sticks and father doing face time Conversation on his phone.
Service was outstanding, our Chef interacted with us the whole time and made us laugh, I would recommend Benihana to everyone, good food, great prices and friendly staff.
Llegamos con reservación y tardaron más de una hora en pasarnos a la mesa... como había demasiada gente y poco personal estuvimos sentados una hora y luego empezaron a cocinar, no hubo show durante la cocinada de los alimentos.
We had an 8pm Reservation. We still had to wait until a little after 9pm.
It was excellent!! Our chef was really good...a bit quiet but the food was awesome! They sang me happy birthday in English and in Japanese! Loved the place!
Carpet dirty toward the end by the kitchen where we were seated.
Restroom super dirty.
Had a reservation and was seated quickly but took a long time for the Cheft to start.
Barely any interaction with the chef.
Won’t be coming back.
Waiter/server was horrible. Had to flag him down several times for drink refills. The salad and soup were brought out at the same time. Usually, they are brought out separately allowing you to finish one of them first.
Very nice place
Foot was overlooked. Not a great experience like many I’ve had before.
Great chief. Oscar. Food was excellent
It’s always great to eat at Benihana. The food is delicious at an affordable price.
We went early so we had the chef cooking for us . It is very quiet when you go earlier for dinner.
I have been going to Benihana's to celebrate every birthday; anniversary; graduation etc since I was 17 (I am now 63) all over the world. This last visit I found to be exceptional. I have been disappointed at times in the past, especially with the franchise in North Miami Beach, but this time, the food was fresh and cooked by Carlos to perfection; the various courses were served timely and the waitress frequently checked what we needed.
It was exceptional. Food, service and the people. Oscar, our chef was funny and kept us entertained while making us our food just the way we asked for it.
Its worth the extra distance because of the location, get there early and do some window shopping
Reservations were for 8:30pm; we were seated at 9pm; Seated at table for an hour. Chef/Cook finally came to our table at 10:10pm-
Waiter made every kind of mistake that you can ask for- I asked for HOT Sake, he brought COLD Sake; my dish came with Soup & Salad - did not bring, had to ask for it... Salads (we were a group of six) were either drenched in dressing or no dressing at all. One of my grandkids ordered the steak/chicken combo with fried rice- Fried rice came after everyone was done eating (including him) it had to be cooked at another table by another Chef because it was never originally ordered as part of his meal. I can go on and on and on. It was a disaster to say the least! Although manager gave us a small discount it didn’t compensate for the aggravation- not to mention that we said we were there for a Birthday celebration (my grandkids) and no one made note of that I guess. No Happy Birthday was sung. I have always gone to Benihana 5-6 times a year because it’s a tradition to celebrate my grandkids birthday there, but you can be sure this is the last time...
Mitchell provided a great service, he went on and beyond to serve us!
Slow and food was bad
Food is always good but we waited over an hour for the cook to show up. We had already finish apps and kids were going crazy. Way too long.
Very friendly group of workers! Always filling drinks & making sure everyone is doing well! I would very well recommend this place.
Fantastic meal with your own personal chef preparing it right in front of you. Oscar was terrific. Will definitely go back and ask for him next time.
