Benihana - Miami Beach Ratings and Reviews
this was our worst restaurant experience, the AC was working at half capacity, the Chefs were sweating and their sweat was dripping on the cooking table,
the ambiance was Zero and really not enjoyable, very Loud stand alone AC units were placed at random through out the restaurant that made us feel like sitting in a construction zone.
This restaurant should be closed down and or removed from Open Table
This Benihana used to be my favorite especially for the view of the ocean. I won't go there again . The air conditioning was broken and it was super hot and dirty. The poor chef was so hot and sweaty that his sweat was dripping in the food. Completely disappointed and turned off. It was my birthday and the waitress did not bring me my birthday ice cream or even offer it nor did I get my picture. This was a total let down. Complained to management and he did not care.
Me and three others tried out Benihana in Miami for our vacation. The food and our chef was great, however the waitress was a bit of that evening, she never asked us for drinks and when we finally managed to order a bottle of wine it did not arrive untill we were finnished eating. A shame but atleast we did not have to pay for the opened wine that we returned.
Horrible place, i am never coming back again.
Firstly, we made a reservation for 8pm, we got there 15 minutes earlier, and there was no table ready, we had to wait until 8:30pm to seat, secondly the person at the reception was very rude, like she didnt want to be there. The entire place was dirty, the floor was sticky, and not only in a particular place, but the entire restaurant, the tables were also very dirty, you couldt seat.
To make matters worse, the air condicioning was broken, we couldnt stand staying there for any longer, it was very hot inside, me and my entire family were sweating. We had to leave, and i am never coming back again, worst experience ever.
Great dining experience and food! Our drinks were horrible and had to be exchanged for sodas; and the air conditioner was broken. The restaurant had portable units around the restaurant to cool the area and the waitress was great at solving our drink issue. We love Benihana and would never stop dining there!
I am very sad that the A.C. still has not been fixed. I was hoping that a few months was enough time to have this taken care of. The food was great as always and service was wonderful. However I should not leave a restaurant with a $200+ bill and be sweating.
I actually came after my set reservation I had a great time as usual but the cook was not so good.. He did not speak, did none of the tricks, wasn't very interactive with us especially since I had a child with me. Even the group that was also in the table complained to me about his service/behavior. He looked very upset like he didn't want to be here cooking/ at work. I was very disappointed with this cook. Even when we asked for something he would give attitude. His attitude made the whole experience and food so bland. I didn't even eat my food, I took it home with me. Very disappointing
Place was terrible, no air conditioning, WITH FANS IN THE CORNER, NOT ENOUGH!!!, ceiling with humedity, bad service, super expensive, we will never visit this place again, food was good.
IF the owner of this concept will visit it, i am sure he will close it...
WE WERE 6, AND SPENT 350, A TIP WAS IN THE BILL FOR 50 DOLLAR, AMAZING!!
I made a reervation in ord err to avoid an unecessary wait and make it to my daughter's soccer practice. However, I eneed up waiting half an hour before the waitress took my order anyway. I was at Benihana a total of an hour and a half. Needless to say, we missed soccer practice. It was very frustrating and uncomfortable sick there is no a/c and there are portable a/c units scattered throughout the facility.
We love the food here but their air conditioning hasn't been working for over a month and they have some portable units that just don't help. Everyone was hot and sweaty there. Employees don't look happy because of the conditions they are working in. You can see the quality of this location has gone way down. They don't do anything to fix the problem.
Ghetto trash. No fire show the cook we had show was flaunting his behind to the table and the order the food was cooked was terrible. The veggies are served last after your rice is gone. The noodles were God awful and ruined with this nasty expired tasting sauce that also ruined an entire steak when he dumped it on that too. Over priced for ghetto Chinese tasting meal that you can find anywhere else. The heat is also unbearable and the waitress was clueless on all asked questions
The AC was not working and they needed extra units to keep the place not so cool. The staff seemed to be more interested in each other then the guests. Our cheff was the best part but the rest of the staff, not so much. We even talked with the manager, he said he would look into the slow service and never came to the table to check in. The food was really good. The waitress did not let us know that when we ordered and she suggested something that there was an up charge. Over all, a very disapointing evening. I would not reccommend nor would I return.
I love that Benihana has something for adult and children. The shows are entertaining and the chefs are also very involved with the guests, Luckiky we had our chef of choice (Jerry) HE IS THE BEST! Overall loved everything but I would have appreciated if they told me over the phone that the AC was broken that way we could have dressed according.
The cook was partial to the other family at the table. Even though it was my birthday I received what appeared to be leftover lobster. He was not entertaining at all and he kept giving the other family additional food. We felt discriminated against. It did not feel like much of a special occassion.
The food was not the best. The yum yum sauce was not so yum yum! Next year I will celebrate elsewhere!!
The servers were attentive and very nice.
My reservations was at 7:30pm and did not get seated till almost 8pm. We were seated finally, to only have to move from the table because we were seated in the wrong table and the table we were moved to was the same as the original table we were seated at so I don't understand why we were moved. Service tool way too long, didn't leave the restaurant till almost 10 pm. If we would have been seated at the time of our reservation we would have been running so late. I think the hosting staff is not organized what's so ever.
I've been to Benihana in Fort Lauderdale before and there food was amazing. I was down on that in so I decided to go to this particular one, I would've taking the drive to Fort Lauderdale anyday. The chicken wasn't fully cooked, the waiter never came back to the table to refill drinks, and also give the checks out. They over charged my fiance card. The manager seemed as if she didn't know what she was doing. Never again will I go back to this location.
The ocassion wad my son's 18th birthday and high school graduation. It was a sur prise for m son. We were a little disappointed when we got there bc the A/C was broken, they had portables but was very hot in the first floor. The carpet going up the stairs was disgusting, it needs to be changed. The chairs in our table the back were super sticky, yucky! For the reputation this restaurant has and the pricing it should be top notch in decor, and especially cleaniness. The womens bsthroom the soap dispenser was coning off the wall and very messy.Once we got to the 2nd floor the A/C was better. I gave the hostess a birthday cake for my son. The people in our table were great. The chef he was a little boring. The quality of food was good, but I remember back in days it was much better. We got the 6 course meal and they forgot to offer us the hot tea and the ice cream. When they came with the ice cream to sing happy birthday the hostess forgot to tell our waitress about the cake. So she had to look for it and see where it was. I felt a little rushed at that point. I was not going to make a big deal about it bc it was my son's special day. We have of always loved coining to this location on Miami Beach, but if we go again we will go to Miramar location which is much closer to us. I would suggest that Benihana take a closer look at the inside of their restaurant and get it up to par. There are an abundance of restaurants in Miami to go to and if this was my only choice I would go somewhere else for sure. It's a shame. I'm sorry I had to leave this review, but I had to. BENIHANA has been such an icon of Miami it saddens me to see how it has gotten. They can correct it and should!!
