I love Benihana.. its our go to for family celebrations spots! My daughter especially loves going there to celebrate when she gets Honor Roll... however, the wait is unbearable. You show up at your reservation time, and you aren't' in your seat ordering drinks minimum of an hour after. And by the time the chef makes it out, you have easily there 1.5 hours waiting for the food to start being cooked!

Its fun if you are there having drinks with a large group of friends, and you have all the time in the world... but for our family meals, we will have to find another place to celebrate :( its just not fun anymore.

Food was great, significantly better than Samurai. Restaurant was clean, but it could benefit from some dimmer lighting to create better ambiance. It's just a bit outdated with some of the seating on the booths being torn. Carlos, our chef, was very friendly. Our waitress was also very sweet and helpful. We would return.

We told them beforehand that we could only eat fish and there was no tuna

The staff was not amenable. We asked to move the dinner by an hour which they didn’t accept. Then we came in time but made us wait for an hour to sit at the table

Overall poor value for money and bad service except for the chef who was very nice

We arrived before our reservation time and waited by the bar for 20 min. Once seated our order was taken. After that it was all downhill. We waited 2 hours for the chef. The restaurant was full with only 3 tepanyake chefs. Food was good but various items were missing and the chef kept having to request additional food to cook. Bottom line got there at 4:15 and left at 7:30.

We were immediately sat down when we arrived so I world recommend reservations. Once we were seated, the waiter took our order and brought soup and salad. After that , we did not see him again. No refills. It took the cook about 40 minutes to get to our table. He must’ve had a rough night or was ready to get off by, it was the longest and boring experience I’ve ever received. Rice was a little salty and bowls weren’t even filled like he didn’t have enough to go around. The vegetables were burnt. And I really mean burnt like you can peel the char off of the zucchini. I was immediately turned off to eating the rest of the meal. Then he must’ve realized he was leaving the food too long and undercooked the shrimp. The best thing was the steak which was cooked medium well. This is the 3rd time I’ve been to this location and the service is alway lacking but this is the first time the food has been awful. I would recommend the restaurant but stay away from coral cables location. And parking is horrible so arrive early to wait for parking or walk from the garages in the area
