My cook didn’t cook my food all the way through. He left egg shell in the rice . He cooked my food with everyone else food even though it stated I have a shell fish allergy. On top of all this he gave the worse experience I have ever had and I frequent this restaurant in Stuart FL often.

The cook was awesome. The food was great. Our server was very slow. We didn’t even get our soup and salad until after the cook showed up.

It was very loud on a Friday night in the Hibachi room so we ate in the dining area where you can get the same food but not cooked in front of you. It was not as hot and not as tasty as I have had in the past. The bar area looks nice so I may try their happy hour which is usually good at other Benihana's.

The only thing i didn't like was when they put too much pepper in the food, i think the time we went might of had something to do with it because they was rushing, other than that the service was really good, the staff was very nice

Stay away. Probably the worst run restaurant I have been in years. After 1 hour and 20 minutes and complaining, they finally came to cook our food. It took 45 minutes for our soup, 2 out of 4 of our salads came out with no dressing (and we asked repeatedly for salad dressing and the waitress never brought it). The waitress was slow and poorly trained. The chef actually cooked backwards. The shrimp appetizer was served last. Had no idea what he was doing. The waitress got lost and never even served the bottle of wine we ordered. The people who were sitting at our table actually got up and left due to the lack of service and no food. It was an absolute crap show. Pathetic and overpriced. My wife is actually going to complain to Benihana corporate on Monday. Never got our ice cream dessert. Didn’t even offer to bring it. Horrible. Stay away!

Rachel, our server was awesome!! The table chef was ok, but not as expert as the others around our table. This was our kids 1st time at a Benihana, so was expecting more engagement from the Chef. :)
Overall the kids liked to the food, though a bit expensive... will need to try out during lunch hours.

Overall our experience was very nice however we were 4 and told to it across from the chef and they put two others on each side. We were NOT able to speak to our friends as we were always looking forward so best to allow 4 to sit two on the side and two in the front so we can talk to each other more than when lined up in a row. Also, it was our friends birthday and they found that the chef was NOT very exciting and did NOT do alot of entertaining that most of the chefs at the other tables were doing so they were disappointed........

Hadn’t been to a Benihana in years. It’s turned into a much brighter decor. Doesn’t seem as upscale as it once was, and a ton of birthdays. (Had Happy Birthday sung approx 6 times during our meal.). Food was standard Hibachi but the chicken wasn’t very good, too chewy. With other hibachi restaurants now competing in the space, surprised that Benihana has fallen behind.

The food has gone downhill. Everything has garlic butter on it so it all tastes the same! I used to like my seafood with regular butter so that you can actually taste the scallops, lobster, calamari and shrimp. The experience is fun. The chef and servers were ok. There were birthdays at every table! With their birthday coupon, the meal is a good value. Without it, it is way overpriced.

Our waitress was really nice and KC our chef went above and beyond for my children. He put on a great show for us and he tweaked the food to our liking. Like no pepper in the food. No seasoning for the kids. Just a great night. Our waitress had blond hair and she was great too

Over 15 years we have eaten at Benihanas maybe 75 times, and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. However,
Our second visit to the Boca Raton location.
The first visit was right after they opened, it was a disaster. We were seated at a table that was filthy around the air vent. When we told the "chef " he didn't bother to clean it. Smoke from the table behind us enveloped our entire table. ( the vents weren't working properly.
Food was good, portions were small.
Little or no "show" typically a fun sight to watch.
Drinks ordered came wrong. When told to waiter, he said they had to replace what was ordered. (But didn't advise us of the change.)
On to our visit this past Wednesday night.
The hibachi table was partially cleaned after the last people left. Old rice was scattered around the vent area, and by the stack of plates we were going to get our food served on.
"Chef" used same utensils on raw chicken, rice, then on vegetables and then again on steaks.
They came up 1 chicken portion short, and tried to give everyone a little less. The table complained and finally an additional piece of chicken was brought out and cooked.
We will probably never go back, certainly not the Boca location.
If I owned this place, the manager would be fired, and all servers be retrained in food safety.
Health Department should visit and view the meal preparation.

Don't get sick like we did. Just don't go.
This is about the Boca Raton location.

We went here to celebrate our family being together before my surgery. Adele was an amazing server, she really went all out to make us enjoy ourselves. There was a mix up with the “fried” rice that normally comes with hibachi dinners, but we all ended up enjoying the uncharged dish anyway. We also had a really entertaining chef, I can’t remember his name but he was patient and humorous. It’s a very nice and clean place, we will definitely return.

Took my Niece here while visiting Fl as a graduation gift. I love Benihana back home (MN) and thought she would enjoy it (food and experience). Very, very busy location. Service was great and everyone I encountered was pleasant. She-Dain (our waiter) was very busy with two full tables but stayed pleasant and tried to keep up high quality service (communication, refills, etc) but was overwhelmed. He was very apologetic though and we could all tell he was doing his best. Our cook (Yasseiel) was also very nice. His cooking was a little sloppy (broken and raw eggs on my niece’s plate, chx and rice off the grill) but he was very engaging. I go to Benihana way too often in MN and this was the first time I noticed the food wasn’t as flavorful. It was extremely bland. I chose not to complain but in a regular restaurant where I wasn’t celebrating a special occasion, would have sent the plate back.

This is by far the worst location for Benihana. Service sucks and is super slow. Shrimp were served not fully cooked. Waiter never came for refills. It took 2.5 hours start to finish once seated. Chef was unenthusiastic. I would recommend another hibachi restaurant as I’ve had various poor experiences here.

Our waiter ignored our table. I went a whole meal without a drink. No steamed rice. Our waiter was no where to be found until the end of the meal. On top of that I became violently ill after eating there. And so did my significant other. I was disappointed.
