Benihana - San Diego
It was nice to sit down again for dinner. We had our own station to watch the food prep and eat our meal. I was so happy to spend my first evening out with Benihana's. All CDC guidelines were in place. 5 stars from me
The chef sanitized his tools in front of us and we had our own table, hands down awesome
Dinner was great like always I like the new social distance guidelines my son and I enjoyed the new dine-in rules we enjoyed an entire table to ourselves we had extra room and the extra sanitizing precautions were nice.
It was awesome to be able to dine in after everything being closed. The service was awesome!
Service was excellent and our cook David was great. Our food was cooked to perfection.
Benihani is one of our favorities and did not disappoint this time either. they handled the social distancing well, food was awesome, good service. Super fun.
Great service and didn’t wait long food was delicious
Always great at Benis
The food was brought out to us warm. Other than that everything was fine.
It was a great experience. We celebrated the opening on restaurants here by going here and it was the best!
For us being only 1 of 2 tables other then the lounge area we waited 50 mins at our table with just soup and drinks before we got our chef. Seemed like much longer then any normal experience prior. There was atleast 3 chefs though cause the table before us and after all had a different chef. Best part was the chefs jokes and skills. He definitely knew how to put on a show and interact with just 2 ppl
Chicken and Shrimp Family meal very tasty also ordered some specialty sushi rolls! Excellent curbside service!
Another great birthday dinner at Benihana! Thank you for always providing a great meal and a lot of fun!
I Loveeeeeed our Chef “Marcello”
Highly Recommend him ❤️
Excellent place to eat for birthdays and anniversaries
Our chef Tyler was great!!! very energetic & personable..he put on a great show!!!
Connor was great! Very engaging and fun!
Entertaining. Flavorful food, not there. Not what I expected the way it smelled from outdoors.
Server was very inattentive.
Awesome! Great birthday dinner!
Might as well have been my first time there. The jokes felt a little canned and old but it's still fun and tasty and I enjoyed the community table feel.
A little slow getting started but the food is always good and we liked our cook.
We forgot to take our picture for our memories file😞
Amazing anniversary me and my husband had chef Tyler was amazing and the people we where sitting where also amazing. Hope to come back soon !!
Great service, great chef, great food and great company at the table
We appreciate you dining with Benihana, thank you for the kind words!
Our chef, Derrick was absolutely fantastic! He mentioned that he is still new to the job but if he didn’t mention it, we would have never known! He even catered to the children at the table. Next time we come, we will definitely request Derrick!
Whoever our Chef was did an amazing job at keeping the atmosphere comfortable even with an annoying customer in our group. Thank you!
This is one of my favorite places. It is perfect for all ages and events. Hector is a great chef! He was professional, kind, and attentive to everyone's needs.

Your feedback is appreciated. We are pleased to hear we were able to create a great memory for you!
Hello. My appointment was for 3:15 pm and we ended up eating at 4:30 pm . People who came in at 4pm got their chef at 4:30 at the same time we did. The waiter was the best and our Chef was great. I believe this is a mistake on the manager. We were offered no apology nothing for our long wait. If I didn’t have guests with me ... my family and I would of walked out. I hope this was not discrimination I hope there was a reasonable explanation.

Such a great restaurant for celebrations. Also love how each Chef creates their own unique teppan experience.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the dining experience!
This is our usual go to place for birthdays in my family but this last visit wasn’t as great as they normally are. I had a reservation for 8pm on a Wednesday, got there and we were handed a buzzer, we didn’t get seated until 8:40pm, and finally got our entree at 9:45pm. Usually go there anticipating the visit being about an hour and a half total but 2 hours after our reservation to get our food was disappointing.

Took 40 minutes to get seated and 30 minutes to order food... it was a joke. Must be poor management
This was our 8th year celebrating our birthdays and we've had outstanding service and quality every time we go.
Their happy hour is always a nice way to start the evening. The appetizers are delicious.
Awesome Cher! On behalf of our team here at Benihana, we would like to thank you for your continuous loyalty!
Awesome place to eat and a great experience. My girlfriend and I ordered the deluxe 6 course meal. The filet migon and the cold water lobster. The steak was cookeda actual perfection and our chef did not mind giving away more of the garlic butter. The noise was a little to loud for me but i have to say this was just an amazing experience for a first timer. And definetley will be coming back for sure.
Thank you Isaac for sharing your feedback with us. We are happy to hear that you had a great experience.
Went on to celebrate a birthday
We didn’t know you were able to get a discount if you print a ticket online when it’s your birthday. Wish I knew about it before.... but I’ll be ready for it next time .... overall it was great
Thank you Peter for leaving us positive feedback, come back soon!
