Benihana - Coral Gables
I love Benihana and I always go done there in London and Dubai. However this one here Iin Miami was really rundown! Place was smelly and unclean and the chef kept adding masses of butter over everything he cooks! Definitely won’t recommend this branch here again!
I took a work colleague and it was great they didn’t wait until table filled up. Very good service and delicious hibachi lunch. When I left my jacket at the table, the called me up and came outside to bring it over to my car as I stopped in front of restaurant. I highly recommend!
Hot, overpriced, crowded, loud, not enough food!!
The server that we had named Jessica was very monotone with her service she didn’t smile did not seem too satisfied to be working that day , our chef (Javier - I believe his name was) wasn’t talkative or enthusiastic either and was somewhat upset of our food requests such as seashell allergies and special requests like no meat or egg on the fried rice. If It was up to me I wouldn’t have tipped at all but unfortunately service was already included. They should work for the tip, very unpleasant service on such a nice occasion (my sisters bday )
We go there every other week. Just this time we had a lousy service. It actually got better after I complained with the manager
when the waitress came to our table 2 of the 4 of us were in the bar settling tab. she asked what we wanted to drink i told her there were 4 of us and she said in a curt tone no kidding i can see the menus. then she brought my mom a dirty martini after my mom stressed in her order that is not what she wanted. the bartender made her another one. then she did not put my 2 fried rice on the order so they had to make in the kitchen. then $100.00 worth of the other party’s bill was on our bill. manager fixed it. we were celebrating my sons birthday. very disappointed
I really enjoyed the food, the service that night was very bad we waited more than an hour for a chef. I feel like the place is outdated. I think it's a nice place to go for a birthday or special occasion.
Never disappointed l! Fernando was a talented and entertaining chef!
As always good.
They need to care more about bathroom cleanness.
Birthday , Very good food and nice persons
Really good server! Had a great time! I always have a wonderful time!
The service was great. The only part I’m concerned about it that you have a few things in the menu that you don’t have to offer. Also the fried rice is optional it’s not included as part of the menu. The service is very good no complaints - the young lady who served me was amazing lots of energy and very profesional.
We went for my fiancé’s graduation outing. We had a great time. Our chef was funny and kept the experience entertaining. First time at this location and will be coming back.
We celebrated my husband’s birthday! The food was great! Had a great time.
Service was ok our waiter took our orders and after he brought our salads to the table we didn’t see him till the end...service want all that!! Our chef was great and the food as well!!
Really like the cook and the server was amazing. Super nice and quick. I really recommend to anyone
It was amazing. Great service from Kevin our waiter and Oscar our chef
Our chef want great but we always enjoy dinner at Benihana
The chef while cooking at the hibachi did not do any tricks which the kids were looking forward to it. He did not interact with us at all. When you sit at the hibachi table you expect to be entertained by the chef! And the food was not up to par with previous visits at this Benihana location.
Food prep was not thought out ahead. Other people were served their full meal before ours hit the grill. No show of talents like Benihana is known for. The overall morale of staff was low. Our waitress was very kind though.
It was ok. But we waited over 45 minutes before we even got something to drink.
The chef was good but I seen better at Samurai. There, the chef made a great show and talk to the people around the table. Here, we were there to celebrate my husbands bday and there was no mention of it at all, eventhou I told the waitress.
This experience is not what I though.
The chef was great, but the service was substandard.
Excellent service, our chef was the Best👍
Food and service was not as good as it used to be. Food seemed to be reheated instead of freshly made. Service was also not as good as it used to be. Perhaps it was a “Monday” issue.
Overpriced and average food. Everything stays with the same taste at that table.
One of my favorite places overall.
It was my birthday and I really enjoyed the chef and the food was amazing.
had a great chef name Marose not sure if I spell it right he comes from the causeway location he cooks great in very friendly I will be back again
Excellent service! Excellent food! Reservation was made and I was seated at my scheduled time. Definitely recommend!
Awesome group birthday party experience
I went with my family because my daughter was turning 13. I enjoyed the live cooking hibashi. The boy that took care of us was excellent, the place was full but everything turn out great. I loved it!!!!
It was a pleasant surprise as we usually go to the 79th st restaurant or the one in Miramar which are noisy and dirty.
It took the cook 45 minutes to come to the table and there was only one other table occupied when we arrived. We got a new chef, which is fine but he should have been accompanied by a pro. He did not introduce himself like it’s customary there or do the utensils show. When he cooked the fried rice, there was rice flying everywhere. Very messy. He eventually cleaned it. He forgot to throw the shrimp in his hat and do the laser when he did the locomotive with the onions. In the end, the food was good but it took forever.
We had a bitter sweet experience, we were.seated immediately however waiter was not attentive at all, even the chef had to call him to get us drinks. Floors and seats were dirty . Food was ok.
Have been to this location to celebrate birthdays and graduation.. have not been disappointed
Excellent service and food always a perfect!!
Parking is the only problem, it’s very hard to get into the parking garage.
Birthday celebration for my daughter. Was very nice
Birthday dinner success! Will be back for Fathers Day
It was very nice, staff great, food great and awesome location
