Benihana - Stuart
It is obvious now how much beni Hana just wants to make a buck. We had one person cancel last minute for my 8 year old daughters birthday dinner, so they stuck a single male with our party. It was creepy and inappropriate with him on his phone and taking pictures. I was so dissapounted the entire dinner. I would have been happy to pay an extra plate cost not to have had a male intruder for an 8 year olds birthday. Shame on you beni Hana.
Two (2) hours for a meal is totally too long. Server was ok...chef was not good. She had to go to the kitchen 4 times to get missing items. Rice was burned, onions burned, vent did not work.....we were covered with smoke almost the entire meal. Very disappointing.
Always great! Looking forward to our next visit! Cheers!
Benihana has long been one of my favorite places to eat. The last couple of times I went I was not as impressed as I have been in the past. This time our food was not of the caliber I am used to having at Benihana. The soup was too strong. All our food to be cooked was not all together on the cart. Our chef had to ask someone to bring out missing items twice, after being asked by us whether or not our food was on there. The flavor all around was not as pleasing as in the past. The order in which the food was put on our plates made no sense, My daughter and I both had to wait for our main entree as the veggies and shrimp were done but our entrees were not even on the cart. I feel the restaurant has gone downhill the last two or three times we have gone. We will try to find another hibachi restaurant. Hopefully we will find one with good service and good food !! Our wait staff was very pleasant and on the ball. It was mostly the food we were not happy with.
Good food!! I wish they would change up the show since it's pretty boring after seeing it a few times. Would be nice if there was a group seating option without the show, so you could get the food faster.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion! I am a vegan and they cooked my food first so it would not be near the meat and it was fabulous! We had the best time!!
Waitress wasn’t responsive and barely understood the order. Did not make any recommendations. Simple played dome. My $30 discount voucher wasn’t accepted says only if you celebrate birthday on Monday through Thursday which is rediculus.
This spot has a fantastic view on the St Lucie river and our Chef was Maria and she did an awesome job for both the show and the service!
Our server Emily was amazing. Very attentive and friendly.
Food is always spectacular and the service was top notch! I have been eating at this Benihana for 27 years for all occasions and the food never has disappointed me. My family and I will continue to return ☺
Our cook was wonderful! Great service! The food was pretty good also but my children had a great time with all of the tricks the cook did and there was so much to look at as well.
I had a great dinner, & a wonderful Birthday experience. My only disappointment was that the server's camera didn't work & so I have no record of a nice dinner with my son & his wife.
Food was bland. Rice needed more soy sauce and everything needed more garlic butter
On the shrimp dinner there use to be large shrimp and this visit they used much smaller shrimp.
The food was good, the cook was excellent!
As always we enjoy the view of outside.
The happy hour and apps are wonderful downstairs.
We have been to Benihana many times but this time was very different.
Fried rice used to be part of the meal. Now they charge $4.50 extra for it?????
Noodles were part of the meal, but this time there were none. We really missed that.
Also, our chef did not make the experience special. No antics, no throwing shrimp shells, and no banter.
I'm sorry to have to write a review like this, but we were very disappointed.
Best food good service and love the view and the show .
Seated quickly and near windows with awesome view! Staff very attentive and our chef Byron was great!!!
Very poor service. The hostess was surly, the wait staff could be overheard talking about customers at the servery. The check arrived before dessert
Maria was a wonderful chef! The kids had a blast and the food was yummy.
As marked in the previous boxes, everything was very good. It is however, a bit overpriced. We ended up spending well over $150.00 dollars (which did include two (happy hour) appetizers and and two drinks for both my wife and myself).
Let me start by saying that Alaysha was great!! She made great recommendations for drinks, checked on us at appropriate times, was prompt in her service, and very polite. She even made conversation with us, which isn't given much these days. If I go back, I'll make sure to request her table. Our hibachi chef was very entertaining. His name started with a G & he had my kids laughing the entire time. My only complaint (which is no reflection of the restaurant) was the family at 1 table with a crying/fussy toddler the entire time & the woman at another table who kept screaming for her kids to SIT DOWN. Again, not the fault of the restaurant but I guess people bring their kids for the hibachi entertainment & I wasn't expecting that noise level.
I enjoyed myself and the people we were seated with were really nice people. It was my birthday and I didn’t receive my birthday certificate so I ended up having to pay for my meal and that was the only downside. Every thing else was great I can’t complain
Wonderful lunch and beautiful view. Can't beat the value.
We went for my son’s 12th birthday. We asked for a fun chef and boy did we get one! Absolutely worth every penny!
Great food and service. Our chef and server were well trained and fun. Me and my group of friends go every chance we get.
Great place to go and enjoy your dining experience.
Food was great. Slow service. We had a 7:30 reservation and didn’t get sat until closer to 8pm. Love the atmosphere just a little slow on service.
Chef was great! Server wasn't very attentive and the 2 of us that ordered white rice never got it despite the chef asking the server a couple of times to grab it for us. Also had to ask for a glass of water twice despite her saying she'd grab it with the rest of the party's drinks
The staff was friendly. The Chef talented. Benihana never disappoints
great food. very good service, chef lacks personality. pretty expensive.
Excellent allways enjoy my time at benihanns steak house
I have been to this establishment a few times over the years and it's one of my sons favorite places to go for his birthday. The food is always decent, always a bit overpriced, and it used to be entertaining which made the cost almost worthwhile. The last couple of times we've been, the entertainment factor that justified the added cost has not measured up.
Kept waiting for almost half an hour, despite having reservations. Our party of five was seated with three other diners, one of whom had dietary restrictions which meant her meal was prepared first while the rest of the table waited. Our waitress was just ok. Our chef was nice but seemed bored with task. Food was good., but nothing special. Mai Tais were overpriced and weak. All in all it was fun but I have had a better time at the same restaurant.
always enjoy Benihana for my birthday. Our chef was new, but did an excellent job
I made a reservation for 8:30 party of 5.. and the cook didn’t come til 9:45 waited longer than it took the chef to cook and for us to eat.. there was no energy in the chef.. food was prepared correctly but overall horrible experience I would not be going back there because the other couple that came 15 mins after us had to wait also and our table was full and our order was taken. We complained and they did nothing..
We love Benihana and always come here for birthday celebrations. We always have a great service and a great experience!
Worst one we've been too. Disproportionate meal sizes. Paid alot for bad food.
I have been to this restaurant many many times but this experience was one of the worst. The computers were down (obviously things happen) but staff did not communicate with customers well and were clearly overwhelmed. The hibachi show was one of the poorest I’ve seen in awhile. The cook forgot some food In the back and left the grill on with food smoking in front of us while he went to get the food. The portion size for salad/soup was less than par. The seasoning was off and the steak was undercooked. Service was very slow. This was definitely not the experience we typically get at this location and we were left disappointed.
