Benihana - Coral Gables
Birthday for my son and friends a party of 6; good atmosphere, excellent waitress service!
Food good as always very consistent. Had a very good time
Benihana is great for groups - 10 fit at a table so any less they sit you with strangers. Kids are welcome and so is the mess they make on the floor! Staff at the Gables location are amazingly calm, cool and patient with the younger kids and they are great waiters. The chefs make the evening special and will entertain young and old alike. Love going there!
Great atmosphere and great restaurant service ... had a good time
Upon arrival manager questioned the age of my children before giving a kids menu. Once seated we ordered, drinks took a while to arrive. Our cook took about 70 minutes to arrive at the table to begin cooking. Cook was great and friendly, but the wait time was ridiculous. Refills on drinks took long, not to mention 3 of our guest had to return their drinks due to bad quality. Not spending our money at that location ever. Next time will drive to Benihana in Miramar where service has always been top notch.
The food was great. I've been to Benihana in other locations and the cool thing about it, besides the great food, is the interaction with the chef (including, but not limited to; the jokes, the tricks, etc). But this time, the chef was awful, he was angry the whole time. I am not complaining about the food or the service (which was great) I'm talking here about the chef not being was he was expected to be when you come to Benihana.
The food was great like always but the chef wasn't so friendly this time... No tricks were really done or any interactions like it usually is... sad because it was my son's 9th birthday... maybe the time had something to do with it since it was late... the table next to us was having a blast with their chef.
Took to long overall. To get seated, to start cooking, etc.
A shadow of what it used to be. As soon as you enter you smell the old carpets and food odor. Super loud. The chef was super boring and it seemed like a robot more than a person. It was a birthday dinner which they kne about and never came to sing and even started cleaning up the restaurant and closing with all of us there. Not coming back.
Great as always!
Had to wait an hour at table for chef to come and start cooking even though I had a reservation !
We were here to celebrate a 15 year old birthday and she really wanted to go ....our chef had zero personality which made the experience overall not that exciting. Food was good not great.....as is expected for Benihana ....you go for the fun....thanks to our chef and the other antisocial 4 people at the table it was a totally average to blah experience!
Pésimo servicio y ambiente.
comida muy comercial
Teniamos reservacion y no estaba lista la mesa.
la masa que nos asignaron ruidosa y el mesero muy malo
Despite of having a reservation, we waited almost two hours to get the food so we decided to leave the table. It was ridiculous !
We’ve been going to Benihana’s for many years. The prices have continued to rise while the portions have gotten appreciably smaller. Sorry to say the overall quality of the dining experience is simply not what it used to be.
End of the year dinnee
For kids it was fun. Not an Asian staff member in the restaurant staff. He was entertaining. Food OK.
Nice location, very good food, and trendy type place
Loved the service & food! Only bad thing was that i made a reservation for 8:30 and table wasn’t ready till 10.... i understand if i was a walk in, but i made a reservation to not have this issue. Overall waiter & chef were awesome!
The food is good as always but the service could have been better. The chef and the waitress were not on the same page and they kept messing up orders
Food was amazing and chef was great!
Only complaint is the waiting time. We had to wait 45min (even though we had a reservation and arrived in advance) to be seated.
Everything was good, but I would like for them to use less sodium, whole grain rice instead of the nutritiomless white rice and add some vegetarian options.
Food and beverage are quite expensive and portions small, but good quality, we have a good time.
The chef was not very enthusiastic, food quality was very good but I find the amount you spend is a bit much.
We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time and the chef arrived at the table ONE HOUR after that. After we went to see somebody, we were told they had forgotten about us! Food was no good and my kids and I are completely done with Benihana. Bye!
Always a good place for celebrations. We were thrilled to find out they now have shrimp sauce like Samurai. We will be coming back soon
The place was not clean.
The part in the table in back of us was screaming! We couldn’t even hear ourself because of the screams. The staff never did anything to calm them down.
We ordered 5 appetizers and only received 1. The rest came in late.
The chef, nice person, but not well trained. The restaurant is famous for their cooking shows and there was none. The food was good tho.
Our Chef was fantastic so was our sever
Great time for my nieces birthday!
Wait time was disastrous -- it took an hour for the teppanyaki chef to get to our table. He was very entertaining, however, the night was a long, drawn-out experience that made us not want to return for a very long time. Note to Benihana management: Efficiency is key! Find a way to seat your patrons faster and not make them wait for their chef to arrive!
Everything was outstanding the only thing was the temperature may have been past low. It was freezing and even other guest were shivering.
Restaurant was extremely cold. Everyone was complaining but temperature was never adjusted. Took away from the enjoyment of dinner
I was disappointed in the people we say with. This was supposed to be a very special evening since we were celebrating our daughter's 15th birthday. The wait was excessive. The chef seemed less than enthusiastic. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. While good, the food was just not great. Very little meat and thin teriyaki beef. The timing of the food is not smooth. I thought it would be better. I know that it was a Friday night and it was busy. It was our first time there for dinner and maybe our last time sadly.
THE CHEF OSCAR was really great. He is so nice person and its a fantastic food show
We had a great evening. The food hás great, but the marguerita with Grand Marnier was amazing. Tks
It was neither good or bad. It took them a lot to give us (me and my family) a table and chef took a long while to appear. To be fair, food was very good, but the service was not what I expected.
It was excellent.
It was my first time at Benihana, I really loved it. The food was very good and the chef entertained us very well. Only negative point, it was freezing which is not a nice way to enjoy a nice dinner with friends.
My daughter's birthday was an awesome celebration at Benihana, the chef Leo, was very professional and friendly, the food and service was excelent!
Food was extremely delicious combine with excellent service made it a perfect exciting night
When we entered it was ice cold and the host said they couldn’t get the AC down. We were seated and ordered sushi it came after the chef started cooking. I had even asked to cancel it,she proceeded to bring it anyway. Since it was my Birthday Mom had spoken to someone to let them know. No one cared! I had to ask for the dessert that came with our meal, it’s exhausting chasing down servers. At least this location is a bit cleaner then the one in N Bay Village. For the amount you pay they should really get it together look after their restaurants and guests better.
