    After making a reservation and arriving 5 mins later our table was not ready even though the restaurant was basically empty, was able to seat at a table 20 minutes later because had to ask the manager to please let us sit. Since we were celebrating my birthday I had a $30 gift certificate and when trying to provide a few times to different employees, when the server saw the certificate he said it was not valid because it was a holiday even though the conditions only applied to Christmas and New Year's holiday. We were never offered a cup of water and decided to leave since knew we were not going to enjoy the meal. I believe this is my last time going to Benihana Coral Gables, customer service was terrible and we were very disspointed we are not going back, ended up going to Sushi Sake and had a great time they do have great customer service.

    The servers weren't on top of everything, granted they were busy. Had a reservation at 8:30, and did not get sat until 9:30 and didn't eat till 10-10:15. I understand it's busy, and you can't make people eat faster, but if I have a reservation, that should be priority.

    Restrooms are filthy. The place is so loud you have to scream to communicate. Be prepared to leave the place stinky. Understaffed. My server looked so stressed, poor thing. Food was good and tasty.

    It was nice the chef was atrentive and very nice, the server was nice but it seems like he had way too many tables at the same time so he couldn’t service us properly. The place is also really noisy but maybe is because of the tables and all the shows other than that it was good overall

    They were very nice to us at the front desk as we had 1 out of 10 very late and let us wait for him. The table was really tight and more for 8 than 10. The server was kind of slow getting us drinks, but got better as they dinner went on. No disrespect to Oscar our chef, but he was not too much fun. Didn't hardly say a word. Not too many tricks, but did the usual rice heart and fire onion. He did however cook the food really good. It was very expensive, but we did have a lot of drinks. They did a nice birthday cheer for my daughter. I would probably come back, but maybe with less than 10 people.

    I was kind of disappointed, it was my birthday celebration and the waitress was very slow and inattentive. They didn't give me my ice cream, didn't sing Happy Birthday or anything, I think the restaurant was overwhelmed with customers.

    The manager seat us 2 hours after our reservation, try to kick me out because my service dog was notifying me the I need it my insulin, just because she had us waiting 2 hours after our reservations and I was there 30 minutes before because I know some restaurant take a lil time to check my dog certificación, but since we walk in me, my husband and 2 kids she was opposed she was like o the is no tables until 3 hours I was like no I have a reservation, and she walk away and told her staff another girl with red hair to make us wait! And then she try to kick us out after 2 hours waiting because my dog was doing his job! Worst service ever and shame on your manager the woman with short curly hair, glasses and darker skin. I hope no one treats her and her family like that just because of a condition I hope she never go through anything like that!

    This place is always good for the food. It takes a lot of time from the time you get seated to when the chef comes around. They need to get the drink quicker in and get more people to work there at the one in Coral Gables.

    Make sure to view your receipt. For some reason the waitress showed us the receipt 3 or 4 different times and kept changing the price. I still didn’t get a printed receipt but told her I felt we were being over charged and asked her to go get help in calculating the bill in which she didn’t. The service was slow the food was ok but I have had better service and food previously from the same establishment.

    Great experience and food quality was on par for price. Fun place for a family celebration around the holidays. However, the restaurant(including bathrooms!) and overall look/feel/mood could use a refresh to be more modern and upscale to match the neighborhood and menu pricing. The lighting is very bright and doesn't really set the mood like other restaurants in the Coral Gables area. After all, this is a destination and experience restaurant the look/feel is part of the fun.
