    This was the first time that I was not delighted at Benihanas :( We usually go for special occasions (i.e. birthdays, promotions, etc.) so we went for our daughter's birthday yesterday. I was not impressed. PLASTIC SALAD: This was the first time that the salad tasted old and like it came out of a bag. Is your salad bagged or saved in plastic for an extended period of time? CHICKEN RICE: Did you reduce the portions of chicken in the fried rice or the portions of vegetables? I hardly got any zuchini, but my daughter gave me her portions so I was okay. SLOW SERVICE: It took us a very long time to get dessert and the check so that we could leave. Maybe you were short-staffed? ENVIRONMENT: The hibachi dining area needs a face lift, some freshening up as it looks pretty bare and outdated - at the very least put some decorative items on all of those emply shelves/bookcases - it looks like you are going out of business and clearing out to move? BATHROOMS: The bathrooms upstairs is pretty gross...the ladies stall had some wiered white stains on the inside of the door/stall - what could that be? WHAT YOU GOT RIGHT: The chef was pretty good, the food was tasty, the staff sang happybday and the filet mignon was delicious! I share this harsh criticism with you so that you can improve and compete in the Coral Gables market and stay in business = because we love you BENIHANAS and everything that Rocky stood for :)

    We waited 15 minutes but that wasn’t the bad part the AC is broken and the wait once we got to table was over an hour for them to cook the food meanwhile it was 87 degrees in restaurant. The rest of table left and the manager didn’t even come to apologize. Last and final straw was waiter tried to charge us for food for the people who left. Almost $50 more. Very disappointed in service recovery, overall customer service and manager could care less. They had one portable ac unit for entire restaurant meanwhile upstairs the Ac worked fine. Very upsetting and was last time I would ever go there

    I had a reservation for a party of 8 for 6:45pm waited about a broke to be seated!! Restaurant was hot due to air not working waitstaff seemed mad they had to work under these conditions my daughter asked for another plate due to the one she had was dirty waiter brought the plate out holding it with his finger inside the plate, I called him to side privately told him that’s not how you bring out the plate someone must eat out of he apologized never took the plate and walked off. (Trust and believe someone else exchanged the plate and returned with it properly being held!!) Now we’re greeted by our waiter who gives us mini seasonal menus I requested a full size menu because I noticed the seasonal menus was high in pricing compared to the full menu it was a better selection on full menu compared to the seasonal menu where you had no choice but to order a 5 course meal also the full selection menu had different pricing on each menu. Our chef was great very engaging despite the heat from restaurant and grill.

    The air conditioner was not working on the first floor; this made it very uncomfortable for guests who were there to celebrate Mother’s Day. Additionally we made reservations but were not seated until an hour after our reservation time. The servers were friendly once we were seated but the management of reservations was not professional or done with care. No reason to wait an hour if you have good reservation system.

    Very disappointing experience at Benihana in Coral Gables. Made reservations in early May for Mother's Day dinner for 6 @ 5:30pm. The restaurant was packed when we arrived, and we were told that it was 1 1/2 wait!!!!!! We were 5 adults plus a toddler so needless to say, how that worked out! Mgmt blamed late diners and people lingering at tables for long wait. It was pandemonium!!!!! Staff were very disorganized. Thankfully our past server, Jaleena, recognized us and was able to switch to our table. Alberto, our chef, was very good.
