Benihana - Stuart Ratings and Reviews
When you book a reservation for a set time and they make you wait until they can fill up the table completely, ridiculous. That's what we made reservations, late for a movie! The girls as hostesses were horrible seating others prior to us, even had to demand to be seated as I knew we would be late!
They did not accommodate our reservation on time. Service was really slow (2 & 1/2 hrs for entire meal). Waitress actually questioned me about 10% tip in front of others at the table! Food was mediocre & a bit on the expensive for what we got. View was fantastic. Lots of people so it was noisy.
Birthday dinner. I was told there are no more than 8 per table. I requested if it was possible to keep it 7 or under (8 is a little crammed). They agreed, then sat us totaling 9 people at the table. Waitress did not bring the white rice for the kids. Cook had no personality and did not do the typical activities with the food. No Birthday picture. They would not accept the Birthday coupon bcs it was a Sunday. I requested green tea ice cream....the waitress brought vanilla and stated she hoped that was ok, they were out of green tea.....so what, we no longer get to pick from the other options, seriously. I was so incredibly dissatisfied with this visit, I may not go back. I always give this restaurant 5 stars but this was horrible. Waitress also brought my teenager a child cup and then charged me for a second glass when she needed a refill.
Restaurant is not kid friendly for parents with children in strollers. A front staff should remain at the front desk at all times. The outdoor elevator for wheel chairs did not work so, I advised the front desk staff and she left and did not return. We than had to carry the stoller down a flight of stairs. The isles are not wide enough for strollers.
Menu was Benihana standard hibachi cuisine. Food was good, service was excellent and chef prepared food with typical Benihana flair. The dining was greatly enhanced by the beauty of the restaurant with views of its riverside location. An important caveat, RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST. We have eaten at many Benihana locations for its many years of existence but we were amazed at the popularity of this location especially at this time of year.
We love this restaurant. However, when one makes a reservation for a specific time, one should not have to wait, which we did, as we took up the whole table anyway,not sharing it with other customers. It should have been ready for us; we were there on time. The food was cooked to each persons request and the soft shell crab was delicious. The chef could have had more personality, as isn't that what Benihana is all about? Not much interaction with the seven of us; two of them children.
We didn't get sack into all over a half an hour after our reservation please felt rushed towards the end of the night and in the beginning they clearly didn't have enough staff to cover the volume it was disappointing as we are taking our daughter there for a special occasion everything was just average or below
Food was Great everyone in the party loved what they ordered. We expected more of a SHOW while he was making our lunch. But, it didn't happen. Maybe lunch time they don't give the pizazz, I have seen at other locations. First time doing lunch, but kinda expected for the price.
No one ordered from the 'Lunch Menu'.
Was a really fun night out with the girlfriend. The cooks are so talented, you really do get dinner and a show. Our waitress was so sweet. I would recommend to anyone to get the birthday 30 dollar voucher. We got Teriyaki steak and chicken. She got 3 orders of the fried rice and we both got two orders of the steamed rice (of course we shared), and it only came out to 28 bucks. It's so worth it. The food is amazing. The garlic butter on the rice is great. But even without it, the rice is amazing.
The waitress or the chef got our order wrong. We ordered three orders of fried rice, two vegetarian (no chicken) and one chicken (no vegetables or eggs). We received three chicken fried rices with chicken and vegetables so we couldn't eat it. We then had to wait until all three orders of fried rice were remade. My 8 year old son, whose birthday we were celebrating, couldn't understand why he didn't have his rice like the other people who were in another party but at the same hibachi with us. He doesn't eat meat, so I had to explain that theirs had chicken so we had to wait until they made ours without any chicken. By the time we got them, we were sitting there with shrimp and chicken on our plates for over thirty minutes with no starch to eat them with. My husband ended up eating his chicken without any rice and took his fried rice home. I was surprised to see when the bill came that no compensation was made for this inconvenience and we were still charged the same full price for all three orders of fried rice as if nothing had gone wrong. I realize that sometimes mistakes happen but as a fellow business owner, I at least ensure that I offer my customers some kind of concession when I have to say, "Oops, my bad". The customer should not have to ask for this. You know you messed up, offer the customer some compensation for their inconvenience. After all, there are hundreds of other restaurants in Stuart we could have chosen to patronize and we chose Benihana. I don't want to say that we regret it.
Restaurant was dirty, went to bar to have a drink before dinner was not inviting . Tables were dirty, floor was dirty ,restaurant needs a lot of upgrading, not impressed. Felt rushed, ordered sushi rolls hardly had time to eat them and the chef came and started our dinners. At those prices you don't want to be be rushed. Was celebrating a birthday, had 6 people with use our check was a good amount, was not worth it.
