    Great as usual. If you wish to celebrate a birthday or eat communally with family or friends. Benihana is the way to go! Some store are older than others, and this location has seen better days. The front door handle has been broken for a few of our previous visits, hope they get it fixed soon, and the lights are always out in the parking lot. However the food, service, and entertainment are spot on.

    Went for bday with 2 infants. Sorry for the mess Kevin was very nice and friendly although he was a little scarey to the little ones at first. The chef was great. One of the babies was mesmerized while the other was scared with the onion volcano All in all it was a different experience for them both. Thank you Food was good

    Had a reservation for 6:30. they said that they were behind by about 15 min. Didn't get seated until 7:10. Lots of items that were supposed to be with things(tomatoes ) with salad ice cream with Birthday(replaced with cool whip)seems like they didn't have enough cooks to accomadate guests, Just a bad experience

    It’s hard to write this review as it was such a roller coaster! We had an 8:45 reservation, by 10:30 we had only had our soup! Our entire experience took until almost MIDNIGHT! Our server was training a girl. Well I guess our server decided she didn’t want to work anymore, went and sat at the bar, and left the trainee to serve us. Sadly I’m sure the original server will get a majority of the automated tip we left on our large party! She even had the audacity to speak to us on the way out saying “Glad you guys enjoyed your experience”! WHAT A JOKE! The food was decent, the ambiance was okay but everything else was trash! The manager gave us a whole 10% off.

    Had dinner on Friday 1/13/23. We were seated quickly and drink/appetizer orders were taken. It was one hour before the chef appeared. Food was fine, but they never served my rice or my husband’s lobster tail (which they removed from the bill). However, I could not get our waitresses attention to bring more water. We tipped well anyway. I realize the hospitality industry is struggling to find workers. Overall, a mediocre experience with a $300 bill.

    Service was very slow. We had reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes to be seated then the waiter was slow on everything. When we were seated two of our plates were dirty. The chef was fast but unimpressive, like he didn't really care about the job. Another group went to sit at a table next to ours and walked out because they had a bug on table. Overall not worth it will not go back!

    I’ve always enjoyed going to Benihana in the past. We booked a table for 4 at 7:45. Once we got there, we had to wait to be seated until the table was full with other people. Not an issue. We finally got seated and waited an hour until someone finally brought out the starters such as soups our salads but no drinks were ever given to us yet. Finally the drinks come out after we finished eating our soup or salad choice. Then it took another hour for someone to come over and cook our food. I was starting to get sleepy as I had to get to bed because I had work early the next morning. At this point I didn’t even want my dinner anymore. Who wants to eat at 10pm when you booked a 7:45 dinner time. Talk about acid reflux! Then the guy was bringing our checks out and taking our cards but we had never got our dessert that comes with the meals. So we had to remind him that we still had to order our dessert. I was not impressed by Benihanas this time around. Don’t think I’ll be back for a while.

    Benihana has gone downhill. The restaurant is old and dingy. Our waiter was very unprofessional and disappeared the couple times when we needed him. For the prices they charge- I was not happy with my meal or experience. This was a birthday dinner- we felt rushed and like we we inconveniencing the waiter. The waiter brought us to go boxes while we were still eating! He definitely wanted us to leave. He was really bad- probably his first job working as a waiter. Lesson learned- we will not return.

    Our chef, Cameron, was fantastic! Put on a great show and was genuinely happy to be there and cook for us. However, several tables around us were left un-bussed for quite awhile, and the restaurant was not busy as it was 4:30 in the afternoon. The walls are dirty and I get that it is a hibachi-style restaurant, but it looked the grease hadn't been cleaned off the walls in a long time.

    New Years Eve. The Hibachi Chef was amazing, his name was Cameron. He was friendly, he was personable, although he said he was a newer Chef, he was very knowledgeable about the menu, he was extremely accommodating with allergies. We have been going to the Coral Springs Benihana for over 10 years and he was by far the best Chef we have ever had. He made the experience amazing!!!

    We had a reservation but had to wait at least 15 minutes to be seated at the very last table in the corner. Our server was speaking so quietly we could barely hear him. It took him 10 minutes to come take our drink & appetizer order. We asked for napkins on 3 occasions, waiting a total of 20 minutes to get them. He barely came to check on us, we even spotted him on his phone in a closed area of the restaurant. The chef Javier was great, friendly, funny and did an amazing job cooking our food and engaging. However. between the time we sat down and the time it took to prepare our food was approximately 1 hour. I will not visit this location again.

    Two days after Christmas, The restaurant seemed chronically understaffed, but wasn’t limiting walk-ins or reservations. This resulted in every table waiting for 1.5-2 hours for an available chef for the table. Wait staff was scrambling to help where they could, but often ended up forgetting drink refill or side order requests. Not a fun time.

    We arrived for our reservation, and we’re not served until an hour and a half after being there. The restaurant was out of glasses, and knives. Even the drink order took over a half an hour to arrive. The server and the chef had excellent personalities and dispositions, they were just very short staffed, and the management was not very well organized. Our meal/dining experience began at 7:30 and did not end until nearly 11 PM. There were other tables that were waiting even longer than we did.

    Looks like Benihana was short a chef. Juggling tables and a bit late to get to our table. The chef got the order a little mixed up but was able to correct it in little time. The salmon was a bit small for the money and we had to remind the chef of our correct order. For the most part, it was a pleasant experience but not what we expected and are used to from Benihana. With the new year, things will get better.

The people that ordered white rice didn’t get it until we ask for it when everything had gotten cold and we had to ask for the special sauces. The cook had the sauce but he didn’t have dishes to serve it on😡

    We waited almost an hour before the chef came to the table to cook our food. My appetizer never came out. The chef rushed our food and he was very sloppy. Rice grains were flying and even had some land in our drinks. This by far was the worst experience at Benihana's.
