    We booked a reservation and was sat on time which was nice. Unfortunately they double booked the chief and we sat while every other table was served after a table who arrived 20 mins after we sat had a chief come over and start their dinner it was the last straw. Needless to say we left without eating after 1 hour and 45 minutes of waiting. Will never be going back!

    The dinnerware was already set out and had rings showing previous customers had used for their soup dish. The starter soup was very salty and apparently not supposed to taste like that and when other customers voiced their opinion, they just received an apology but not any offering for a replacement dish or bill credit. The salt and pepper shakers were dirty and the containers were rusted. The portions were smaller than other similar restaurants. They cooked the onion and mushroom vegetable side at the very end, so we couldn’t enjoy with our main course. We were supposed to have an ice cream dessert but it was never offered or served. I’ve visited other Japanese steakhouse restaurants and this was one of the worst and I expected it to be over the top…very disappointed!

    Benihana - Key West, FLResponded on July 7, 2022Thank you so much for sharing your feedback..We have addressed your concerns listed above regarding the plates and the salt and pepper shakers immediately.We do indeed cook the vegetables at the end of the meal as part of our process so that is the standard cooking procedure here.We are sorry that you were not offered dessert at the end of your meal.That should have been offered dessert, so I do apologize for that.We hope to serve you better in the future.

    One of if the best Hibachi/Sushi restaurants we have ever been to! We go to only a handful of Hibachi restaurants because we are picky about the quality of the food. Benihana’s Key West is at the top of the list, from the chicken fried rice, Shrimp,Calamari, Steak, Scallops To the mushrooms and onions. The Sashimi was SO FRESH! We will definitely go back there again!

    Benihana - Key West, FLResponded on July 4, 2022Thank you so much for the kind feedback! I will pass on our compliments to our chefs! With so many choices in Key West to dine, we are so happy you choose us and had a great meal! We hope to see you again in the future!

    We were a little disappointed this time. I think we had a new chef. There was way too much time and separation between each item he cooked. I was completely done with mine before my husband got his.

    Benihana - Key West, FLResponded on July 4, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us and for sharing your feedback. It is possible, although I am not certain, that someone at your table could have had a food allergy. Sometimes, where there are dietary restrictions at the table, the chefs have to cook certain foods separately which could result in a delay in the food service. Sorry you did not have a perfect dining experience and we do hope to do better in the future if this was not the reason for the delay. We hope to see you again soon!

    Gorgeous view from our table in front of the restaurant. Chef was outstanding and had a great personality. Food was well-prepared and delicious. Waiter was unfriendly and a bit terse in his interaction and conversation with our party of four. Our four dining companions were very polite and interesting people. Nice dining experience to celebrate my husband's birthday.

    Benihana never fails to satisfy. The food itself is tasty and the servings are always a good size. The chef is as much an entertainer as a chef - part of the reason to go to Benihana, yes? Sometimes you can have a good crowd at the community table; other times maybe not. Last night we were lucky to have a coupe of locals who were amiable & quite funny!! We’ll keep going back…
