Went here for a birthday dinner on the down-low and love sushi. Decided to give the sushi bar a try and it was divine. To be honest, it was better than I thought it was going to be. My fiance loved the rolls that he got (a baked one and a spicy one) and I thought the eel and rainbow... More

Ive been going to Benihana since I was a kid, but like any successful business, Benihana of Key West gave the people what they wanted! The biggest suggestion, not even a complaint because the food was never dissatisfying, was that the guests wanted sushi to go along with their Hibachi style meal. Benihana's sushi bar is second to none, and... More

We tried this restaurant because it was within walking distance of our hotel. Our server Michael and our Hibachi chef Pete added to this great experience. The hibachi food was typical to other restaurants we've tried back home. They offer a sushi menu as well, and we were impressed with their tempura calamari and their unique coconut mojito. Great atmosphere... More

Pete was our hibachi chef and did an awesome job! Not only was our food delicious and cooked just how we requested, he was also super friendly and entertaining. Our kids loved the show. The entire staff was attentive and efficient. Great night out with a beautiful ocean view!

We love Benihana Key West. Adore it! We come here for dinner at least once a year. We have one request: could you please add a non alcoholic beer to the bar menu? Some of us would love to enjoy a beer with our hibachi, but can't do the booze--even in Key West! Thanks, Jim Davenport

I loved Benihana in Key West, but after my last visit I don't think I will be back. The service was poor, though they did give us an appetizer for free. The chef was great but just not as pumped up and lively like you expect. I realize they are there to cook food but it is also about the... More
