We love this place! The food is amazing the service is great it’s always an amazing experience. Carlos is our favorite amazing chef. Although we’ve had several different chefs and they are all amazing. The food taste is just incredible. All of our celebrations for our home take place here. We love Benihana Denver. It’s been 24 years since I started going and I still one of my favorite restaurants.

Yuck!!! Noise level is bad (loud) and we felt that at times it was hard to breathe due to poor ventilation. They are over crowded in the hibachi area and the service was poor. Our cook was boring and didn’t have much in terms of a show which is usually entertaining at these types of restaurants. I’d also say we had to wait 15+ minutes for our table post reservation time. I would avoid this place if possible so you can spend your hard earn money elsewhere that will be better.

It seemed short staffed and a manager, not a waiter brought us our salads after waiting 30 minutes. Unfortunately he dropped one of the salads onto the heated grill and it threw slivers and shards everywhere. He instantly brough 3 new salads. Our showman, Damian I think or Dorian, was spectacular!
The bathrooms were HORRIBLE!! No one cleaned them before we arrived or while we were there. The men's sink was clogged up. Ladies room out of toilet paper. Better to make a few less pennys and have enough staff.

Everything was excellent. Someone made a mistake because the chef gave me scallops instead of shrimp but this was quickly fixed while I enjoyed other parts of my meal. Everybody makes a mistake now and again.

This is a great restaurant, that is consistently hopping. Reservations are a must. We arrived for a 7p reservation at 6:50. They check us in and we went to the bar for a drink. While we did not sit down at our table until 7:10, it was no big deal as we were not in a hurry. Service was very good, the chefs at the table are very entertaining, energetic, and prepare the food very well. Make sure to plan for at least a two hour dinner experience - but again that was fine with us because we were not in a rush.
Only suggestion would be to update the ambience in the bar area. It’s not bad, but it does show its age as this restaurant has been around for a long time and could use a little facelift.

The food is cooked with large amounts of salt and butter. We are still having salt symptoms from swollen body parts.

We had a reservation but waited an hour to be seated. The entry was crowded, there was no place to sit so we stood for an hour. There were 11 of us standing there waiting. When we first arrived, we were told that incomplete parties could not be seated. Once we were all there we were told that as soon as the guests at our table left, the table would be cleared and we would be seated. An hour later they left. Why not move those remaining at the table into the bar to finish their conversations? Then we could have the table in a reasonable time frame.
