It’s always a pleasure to eat at Benihana. Food is delicious and my 11 years old loves to go and watch the chef preparing his hibachi. (And he eats all the veggie rice so that’s a plus).

Bathroom was disgusting. Despite having a reservation, we were seated 45 minutes later. After we were seated, Two larger parties arrived after us, and received drinks and food before us. Once we were seated it was another 20 minutes before are waitress showed up. She was nice and apologetic, but management sucks. Chef was great. Food was great

We were celebrating two birthdays yesterday at the Coral Gables location. Our reservation was for 1:00 pm and we never got any thing to eat for at least an hour, I guess it was mostly due to a lack of Chefs. There was also a bus load of elementary school kids there on a field trip which made the place sooo loud along with the overly loud music.
Our waitress was good and very apologetic, she even brought us orders of edamame on the house to keep us from starving, lol! They were delicious! The salad dressing was tasty but they should go easier on applying it. Soup was nothing to write about. The entree’s of shrimp, scallops, lobster and steak were good and cooked perfectly. The vegetable rice was outstanding as was the dessert sorbet. The best part of the whole meal were our table mates, they were very friendly and we had a really good time with them.
This is a place to go once in a while for a special occasion.
BTW parking in lot behind the restaurant was convenient as street parking is a pain.

I’ve been to this place a million times. The last 2 times now it seems that they don’t have enough chefs for the amount of people. The chefs are not putting on a show because they are rushed off to the next table.

I called to ask if it was ok to arrive 15m late. They said yes but then kept me waiting for almost have an hour before sitting me, and once we were seated, the cook took 40 more minutes to arrive… It was my daughters birthday and they ruined it. Also, we said it was her birthday upon reservation and nothing special was done. The I had to revise the check and found some items that were wrongly charged… I usually go every time is the birthday of anyone in my house but we are reconsidering if we will ever go back.

Extremely disappointed. One of the Benihana employees and her boyfriend sat at the table with me and my family. She was obnoxious and increasingly drunk and rude the entire time. Ruined our dinner and experience. We have been customers for many years but it is unlikely we will give Benihana repeat business after this.

Went for my daughters birthday. The chef we got took about 20 min to start cooking after the tray of food was wheeled out and put in front of us. He told us there was an issue with a table and other stuff in the kitchen. We go there multiple times a year and this time we were not pleased. The food was bland and almost no interaction. My lobster tasted fishy and the shrimp were hard and overcooked. We were told that they ran out of mushroom for the soup and I had told the waiter that it was my daughters birthday. When it came time for dessert they didn't even sing to her. We were truly disappointed with the service and food. Normally, we leave so happy and can't wait to go back again. I get hat we just got an off day for and will be back but this recent visit was not good at all. Sorry Benihana, you did disappoint!

The atmosphere and friendly staff were great. The restaurant was clean everyone wearing their mask, the bathroom should receive a bit of TLC. No toilet paper and bit messy in the women’s bathroom. Overall, we had a great time.

Thank you to Eleinel (Chef) & Jasmine for a wonderful experience as we celebrated a birthday and memories!

Things could have started better, and staff needs to learn how to greet people and not be rude or short. Dinner was disappointing, the efforts by the Chef were great. The quality of the food has them missing the mark. Benihana is not what it was before. My review is being generous, but I personally would not dine there again.

Did not pay attention to my severe food allergies and gave me food with the allergen. I was told it was safe to eat and was only advised they had made a mistake after I had already eaten it. Serious issue.
