Kind of the usual you would expect from Tepinyaki style places. Wouldn’t come without a reservation though cause the wait is pretty hefty without it. Food was good though! Chef and waiter were great!

We went as a family of 10 people and it was great! Felix, our chef, was excellent and was very attentive to each of, including the 4 and 5 year old.

More children than adults in restaurant so if you want a quiet adult meal skip the hibachi table and go to sushi bar. The hibachi table meal is quite good if you don’t mind the hokey show by the chef. Soup salad small shrimp appetizer friend rice for nominal charge veggies from grill and entre. I like the seafood combo with large shrimp scallops and lobster.
At tables for eight there is always risk of incomparable table mates. I was next to a young adult woman who had the broth, about a teaspoon of rice and declared herself stuffed. I almost felt guilty eating everything I was served.

We went to Benihana for my sons 13th birthday, we were 8 total. I regularly go to the Benihana in North Bay Village but its always booked so we went to Coral Gables instead. The location is not as nice as the one in North Bay Village but was not bad. The chef was very nice (Carlos) and connected with the kids, they were entertained.

Thank you

I had been to Benihana in Miramar and had a nice dinner. But in Coral Gables, the hibachi chef had no idea what he was doing. None of the 5 entrees were served at the same time. The shrimp appetizer was served LAST. The onions were served after the vegetables. There was barely any showmanship...

They were out of sherbet (included with meal) - they did substitute ice cream. Bus person was lurking throughout meal. And the restaurant was empty (6pm on Thursday) - so they were in no hurry. Waitress was good but the cook really ruined it for me. Quantities were small.

Food is good. Hibachi chef usual . They don’t insist on supervision of children. One at next table got behind our chef between hot tables and got “bumped.” Cried. Next to hot stove etc. Two girls were singing if your happy and know it and banging chopsticks on their plate. I’ll go to competition in dadeland next time.

My steak and chicken was delicious - perfectly prepared. The experience was a little longer than expected but fun. Dinner was $100 for two kids and an adult which is pricey.

Always loved Benihana as a kid, I still love it as an adult! There are a few things that have changed, but the place is still awesome. Delicious Hibachi!
