Our reservation was at 1 PM and the chef did not start cooking until 1:50. I thought it was very inconsiderate considering the hour of the reservation and the fact that it was a weekday and most people only have one hour. If there aren't enough chefs, you shouldn't make the reservation a possibility.

Owner was present and involved. I usually go to the Benihana in north bay village but have had bad experiences there so I decided to go to this one instead. The one in coral gables is run so much better. I definitely would recommend.

If they cared more about their customers and had better cooks and more responsive staff I would increase this by a star or two. The food is still good. It’s slightly overpriced. If they staffed more chefs I’d give them another star as well. I hope they don’t fade away as Benihana is a great spot when it is operated correctly. Focus more on the customers!

I was a little sad that I wasn’t able to have the green tea ice cream. The waitress stated that it was really frozen and didn’t think I would want it. Other than that, the experience was pretty good.

This was the Worst Benihana I have EVER BEEN TO!!! I didn’t think this was possible. My family LOVES Benihana.we go there every time we travel somewhere that has one. We do not live near one.
This was actually our second night in a row at Benihana. We had eaten at the Ft Lauderdale location the night before.
Coral Gables was a different story .The service was aweful, the chef was horrible, the food was lousy !!!!
All the things that I would never expect from a Benihana!!!!
I was very disappointed and I will never return !!!

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!

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.
