Never fails. Their service is great at first but the second a higher spending table arrives they abandon you. You have to ask for the Bday photo and forget hoping for refills. Glad I got the one refill on my mango lemonade. Probably would have ordered dessert if I finished my food bit hard to finish a big meal when you dont have a drink.

It was off season and restaurant was not crowded. It was quiet so everyone at our table was able to talk to each other. Met some very nice people. Food is always outstanding.

Service was not the greatest. As soon as you walked in the 3 host at the door did not even greet us for about 5 minutes. They did not even seem friendly. Our waiter was very slow we thought he was new but was not. The cook was fun but the food could have been cooked a bit longer. Waiter even forgot appetizers for a guest at our table and became upset when she no longer wanted it since he put the prefer in late. This is the worst service I have ever had in any of your Benihana restaurants and I have been to quiet a few.

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!

As always a very nice experience. Went with my "work spouse" who has a shellfish allergy. Her dinner was made in front of her before any other cooking was done so that there was no chance of any shellfish residue near her food. I thought that was very considerate. Always enjoy watching the antics of the chefs. Food was tasty as usual.

The overall experience was fun, but I was very disappointed when they would not let me use our $30 birthday coupon because the bar code did not print. It was very pricey for three to eat. Beautiful location and environment.

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.

Been going to Benihana for several years - somewhat dismayed that "happy Hour" in cocktail bar costs more than meal for two! Overpriced drinks - watchout! food portions seem smaller, but maybe because I'm upset about the cost for a alcoholic drink!

Benihana is always good for a special occasion. The show gets a little old if you have seen it a bunch of times but the food is always good. Especially the fried rice and some of the new cocktails. Service can vary. Always an enjoyable dinner....

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.

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.
