Not impressed. The party before us had left a big mess on the floor and we had to ask several times to have it cleaned. It was extremely hot even before the cooking plate was turned on. Overpriced, 2 adults with one drink each and a main course each for 110 bucks seems a little extreme.

Took my mother for her 78th birthday. She loved it. She wore a tiara and everyone told her HB and they sang to her. She felt special and had a great time.

Easy to make reservations. Staff was friendly and very helpful and the servers were excellent. The chef was fun and did a great job entertaining us. Our shrimp and lobster was delicious! Would definitely recommend.

We had a party of 10. I made reservations the day before to ensure we were seated at a large table altogether. They first sat us at a table that was small even for 8 people. I immediately contacted the manager, asked to be seated at a large table. When the cook finally started cooking, the last two people in our party were always shortchanged with food. I would never recommend this restaurant for a large party. Very disappointing.

It took 30 minutes to sit us when asked why the Host just smiled. 5 minutes for a drink order , 15 minutes for the cook. My wife ordered vegetable tempura but it was delivered cold half way through our meal. Forgot to give us our rice. Whole table was unhappy. Never going back.

Food was good. Wait service was very good, personable. Our table chef was lacking in congeniality . One person from another group advised she was allergic to shrimp which seemed to annoy the chef at which point created a little uncomfortable setting. You could tell in his demeanor he was not happy. I always thought this was a customer based environment not one that was focused on the chef's happiness. Hey, maybe he was having a bad day. The cooking entertainment was OK, I've seen better from other Benihana and comparable restaurant chefs. The food was tasty and we did enjoy the leftovers the following day. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. The restaurant felt a touch dated and, maybe because it was an 8:00pm sitting, seemed a little stale and dirty. Overall, Benihana is a good place to go to once a year. Disclaimer, since it was a birthday celebration, there was a $30.00 discount to the bill which made it the situation a little more bearable.

It never gets old. This is a great place for fun food. We tried the Shrimp Tempura and the vegetable version also, they were wonderful, a good amount and cooked right. light and crisp. They main meal is a lot to eat and fun to watch it being cooked right in front of you for you.

Usually enjoy it tremendously – but this time, I was denied the use of the $30 birthday credit for my wife because I had used my credit card to book her party.

Who uses a person‘s credit card to book their birthday celebration?? It’s always a gift to them!

Her name is Cheryl Lott Lampard, birthday May 22, 1958
You may have her in your records as Cheryl M Lott, which was her name before we married last year.

Thank you

This was to be a special dinner to say good bye to my visitors who were going home and a close friend moving to Europe. There were 8 of us with a 730 pm reservation. One person was 15 min late but they would not seat us until everyone arrived. We were served drinks fairly quickly but then the service was so slow... we got appetizers at 8:45pm. The service was extremely poor all through the meal. The food tasted great and was cooked nicely BUT even the chef was so slow cooking it- I could have cut those shrimp faster! It was incredible. It made the evening a bit awkward instead of fun. So slow that it created a lot of frustration among my guests and there was no way to resolve it. It was not an inexpensive meal out with 8 people with several rounds of drinks... but the worst was that it took so long...and in the end it was SO not worth it. What a shame. I had been wanting to go here for so long. We were served our main course and literally 5 minutes later felt the staff trying to hurry us up to leave because they were closing!!! No never again.

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.
