    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.

    This place is a guaranteed delicious meal and a wonderful time. Paco is our favorite chef and Keana and Justine our #1 servers! Make a reservation because they are always busy! Sushi is wonderful as is the salmon, steak, shrimp and scallops. The ginger and remoulade sauces are a perfect complement and yummy! Great work team Benihana!!!

    We had a great time at KW Benihana. First off, the ocean view is amazing. Our server, Den, did a great job accommodating our food allergy needs. The Chef, Kiko, simply the best. Kiko was also attentive to our food allergy request. Thank you!! We enjoyed every item he cooked. I would definitely recommend Benihana, KW.

    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…

    We were excited to try this place. We do not have one in Iowa so we thought this would be fun. Our waiter was awful and I am still not sure why the chip on his shoulder other than he kept staring at us with an unpleasant look. We are a mixed race family so maybe that was hard for him, I am not sure. The wait was 55 min to get a chef to our table, however his cooking was great! It was my son’s birthday and they didn’t offer to do anything like they were doing for the other families. We highly encourage you to not go there. It’s not worth the crappy attitudes.

    We had an enjoyable meal at Benihana Key West. Food was good, but the restaurant was evidently short staffed which made service feel a little more erratic - the staff members were evidently working really hard and our review is no reflection on our server or host. Restaurant is a little dated in places, a little TLC and refresh would not go amiss to help improve the overall ambience.

    The food was fantastic, and our waiter and chef were both nice and friendly, but these "event" dinners just take too long for me. Our poor waiter seemed to have 4 large tables so she was very slow. I suppose they are short-staffed like everybody else. Also they pack you in, 8 people to a grilltop table, which was awkwardly crowded.
