My family loves coming to Benihana in Stuart Florida. The food is great and the service is awesome. The last few times, the chefs did not do all the tricks and food preparation of the meat the way they use to do it. I wish it would be more consistently every time we go there. I feel that the chefs cuts the routine tricks so they could be done faster to go to another table. My kids love going there for the tricks and food but it hasn't been what we are expecting from Benihana anymore. I hope you keep the tradition of the chefs routine tricks going and not shorten it at all.

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 30 years and I can’t believe how it has become more about getting people in and out than giving customers a quality dinner /experience. We were seated in a timely manner at our table with another family. Our server took our drink order within five minutes however, 30 minutes later we still had not even been served water and our order had not been taken while a table behind us came in 15 minutes after us and was already enjoying their drinks and appetizers. I spoke with the manager and let them know what was going on as we had two young children with us and they were getting very hungry. Our server informed us they were under staffed, really ? Then the managers should have been helping! One of my grandchildren has severe allergies to nuts and berries and this was passed on to the server and to the chef. They did their best to accommodate however they still put sesame seeds on all of her food and she was not able to eat that and became very upset. Once again I spoke with the manager and they accommodated by making another plate for her however they put no sauce no salt no pepper nothing and it was absolutely tasteless and she would not eat it. At this point we had been seated at this table for over an hour and a half. With all of these incidents happening I would have expected the manager to come over and speak with us and make sure that everything was ok.....nothing. There are so many better restaurants that care about the quality of the food they serve and more importantly about the experience of the customer. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant .

Wonderful as always. Service was delightful and prompt. Chef was skilled and entertaining. Excellent birthday dinner. We had some speciality cocktails, loved the Tokyo mule. Gyoza and rainbow roll were prefect. We had the seafood Diablo, teriyaki steak, surf side and Rocky 's choice. All were excellent.

The service was great. Seth was fabulous and very attentive. However, the steaks were very fatty, even the filet. Our tables shrimp & scallops were over cooked. We will give them another chance as everyone has an off day.

A typical corporate franchise. Food was decent but small portions. The chef was ok but the waitress forgot most of what we asked for. A very basic meal on every level

We were not greeted when we arrived- had a considerable wait for seating- had no place to sit while waiting ( one of our guests had cancer)-
I guess we picked the wrong time to dine- 4:30 ( children made too much noise)
Pro side: excellent view of waterfront- somewhat friendly cook- food choices were excellent- quality of food very good-

We used to go to this same Benihanas when our children were young (approximately 30 years ago) and we were pleased to see that it was still open and just as nice as it was 30 years ago. We went for my husband's birthday and we both really enjoyed ourselves.

We had 2 children from another family at our table. The chef only made the heart beat. The 2 boys were disappointed that none of the other things like the Choi Choi train and volcano were done. I bring my grandchildren to Benihana’s and they all look forward to these things that the chefs do.

You need to get rid of the tables downstairs in the bar area. You need a much larger Bar area and the sushi bar is fine for people who just come for that
The Dining experience would be much better if the staff were of Asian decent and dressed to fit the restaurant. The only vegetable you offered was zucchini, what happened to the bean sprouts.
We will not be back

The first Table we were seated at was very noisy. The people around us at two other tables both had Children that were loud, the Adults were even louder, yelling back and forth to the other table. We asked to have our table changed. We had to wait a while but it was worth the wait.
The table we were at were all adults. The other tables in the room were mixed. The noise was as expected. Not like the first table. I think people should be more considerate of people around them.
