This was my first trip to this location, I dine at a Benihana at least 1 a month, however it is my 4th visit in a month.
This location was fairly busy, but I was seated right away. There was a delay in seeing a server, but once she showed up, she was checking on us regularly . The chef was good and gave a decent show.
Great staff and very entertaining . The food was delicious!
Zero ventilation in this Benihana. Prepare to wear the Beni-smell the rest of the day
great food, and fun place for groups & birthdays
Fun to meet up with a friend for lunch and delicious food!
As always it is a fun place to go with friends.
Awesome ! Amazing experience and atmosphere !
Chef and service was beyond great, thank you benihana !!
Definitely recommend making a reservation for any celebration! Or any day at all! It takes a bit longer to get seated, but you get a great experience when seated at the grill! Wonderful service and food!!
Reservation was messed up. The reservation was in the system, but somehow the staff forgot the step of actually assigning my group to a table. After an additional 30 minute wait, we're finally seated without even so much as an apology. Not what I was looking forward to.
Benihana is always an entertaining place to eat. We only go for certain special occasions, as it has always been and is still very expensive. I look at it as the price of the experience and entertainment value. The food itself is very good but you can find much better values for the money elsewhere. Shogun in Kearny Mesa is the same teppanyaki-style restaurant--also pricey but at least they regularly run coupons in local mailers. Benihana has been a teppanyaki staple for decades and appears to be remaining so, as they are always booked everyday.
it was extremely loud on this day. Michael the cook was great. But the guy who took our orders seemed very pushy to get orders in. I felt rushed to order a drink and place order when I was trying to decide what to drink and wanted to order sushi roll first. So I chose not to spend money on any drinks!
This was my first time going there and I had a very lovely time. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and I can speak for everybody there that they had an excellent time and the food was exceptional.
I would definitely recommend this place and we will be going back soon.
The food was good, and the waitress was good. But the receptionist is so rude, she is not willing to explain anything to us, and just sent another women to talk to us.
We left. Tables seated after us were served first. Very confined area. Annoying cooks at other tables.
Had reservation, and still waited a hour before we were seated.
Talio was the most energetic chef in the building. He was very entertaining and made the other chefs look like novices. Even though we had a 7pm reservation, we weren’t seated until 7:30 and didn’t order until almost 8pm. But it was worth the wait.
My best friend (my wife) and I had dinner at the San Diego location. The food was as delicious as ever, and our Chef Italo was extremely fresh and entertaining. Our table had good energy and that always adds to the experience. Will come again.
We brought a friend for his first time, although our cook wasn't too talkative he was fun.
Crystal our chef was great and so we’re our servers! Very attentive and helpful! The food was great as always
It was my husbands birthday everything went well. Service was excellent.
Fun! Kid friendly ... enjoyed
Very loud Made is wait over 30 minutes !
the dining is great for any ages and the whole staff was aware of everything around them , definitely worth every bit
Great food and service!! A little loud but a lot of fun watching your food being made.
Our food was really good!! Great job Chef Armando!! :)
Always a fun place. A floor show at every table. And the food is great as well.
Mandy gave us great service. The chef was professional and was attentive to anything special that he could do for us.
It was a disappointing experience. I'd urge you to try one of the other Teppenyaki places in town. VERY over priced (compared to others in San Diego) Adults are $22-$55 per person ($22 being chicken of course) and if you want fried rice, it's an additional $4.70 per person.
Kids meals are $12 plus $4.70 gfor fried rice
about 20 cooking tables so very smokey and old and loud.
Sorry Benihana, I just call it like i see it
Excellent cook Max👍🏼
We had a great time. It was very entertaining! We'll be going back.
Liked the place, it was our 1st time, ready to go back
Our server wasn’t chad wasn’t the best we’ve had. They forgot to turn on our grill so had to wait additional time. It was our daughters birthday so the fact that she was hungry was kind of bothering but other than that the food was perfect as always and the chefs are always the best!
Our waiter was fabulous. Best time we’ve ever had at Benihana. His name was Italio.
Had a great time for my son's 11th birthday with the family.
Our chef Hector was the best chef I've had. Very experienced, funny, and personable.
We were celebrating our daughters birthday and had a blast. Food was outstanding and service was great. Will definitely be back for the next special occasion. Mr. “A”
I took a girl here for a first date and it went really well. Honestly one of the best first dates
Food and entertainment was good as usual however we were seated next to a lady that was just obnoxious and rude to the chef and waitress. She complained about EVERYTHING! If it wasn’t for her our dining experience would probably have been much better. It wasn’t the restaurants fault though. They did an amazing job.
