If you have to eat gluten-free, be very careful here. I researched and found several nice comments from people who were able to eat at various Benihana locations safely (but none specifically for Beverly HIlls). After calling to make a reso and speaking to the manager upon arrival I was assured both times that the server would handle it. The... More

Totally fun, food just meh, but if you've never gone, you must. Watching the chefs perform as they cook is a great experience and the communal tables can make for a fun night.

Wonderful food, large portions, great ambience; chefs are fantastic the way they keep you entertained while they serve the food at your table. A real treat to be here. Do reserve your table - it can get crowded

They treat you well everyday at Benihana, but they treat you amazingly on your birthday. You get a $30 free voucher (online after signing up) that covers not just your entree but usually you can get an appetizer, beverage, and dessert with this too. I am not usually a fan of Asian food, but I look forward to my visits... More

This is a fun place to go with friends or family. The show the chef puts on is quite entertaining. And the food is always great and consistent!

Well seasoned food in a pleasant atmosphere. Had dinner here for my husband's birthday and really enjoyed the dining experience. There is convenient and cheap public parking right across the street. Will definitely return.

Ended up here as part of a work group on a business trip. I knew it wasn't going to satisfy my rare trip to LA restaurant hopes but oh well, it wasn't my pick. I hoped the fact it was in Beverly hills would up their game a bit, however this place is a dark and dank room that hasn't... More

Amazing quality of food, and entertaining to watch preparation and cooking. The kids menu was very generous and the steak and lobster selection for the adults is a must. The wait is a little frustrating but it is worth it once you finally get seated. Don't bother trying to find somewhere to park, just use the valet service. The garlic... More
