Our oceanfront view is hard to beat. Our staff loves coming to work where they can enjoy living and working "on the Atlantic" in Key West. We look forward to serving you again soon. Arigato, Mark H - Owner More

We arrived quite late for dinner on the 15th as our Valentine's day was spent babysitting our grandkids and were seated at one of the tables alone which felt a little awkward but then our server Donavan came over and made us feel very much at home.

Went Valentine's day with two other couples. We eat out a lot but I would say Benihana is a bit of a splurge. But the food was good and all the help were very nice. But what would bring us back is our chef Pete. He made our evening. Pete your the best. Thanks

Thanks for the wonderful review. Valentines Day ended up being the busiest night in Benihana Key West history - 29 years and running. Glad you could be a part of this monumental evening where our staff were on point and everyone seemed to enjoy their evening on the Atlantic in Key West. Look forward to serving you again soon.

Food is okay but the wait is definitely not worth it. Reservations don't matter. The worst is waiting over an hour for carryout sushi when there was not another customer in the restaurant. Bartender could have cared less and laughed about the wait.

To be completely honest, this is our favorite restaurant in Key West and we eat there at least once a month; so maybe we do have a bias...BUT, we will tell you why we like it so much... first their food is top quality meats and seafood, being cooked in front of your eyes so that it cannot be fresher,...

I am terribly sorry you had to go through this in my restaurant. I spoke with the manager that evening and he told me how upset you were.
