First time dining at a Japanese eating establishment. Pete was our chef and very entertaining and talented. So much food, enough for take home to enjoy another day. Would encourage trying this restaurant as it is located on the least busy area of Key West plenty of parking and calming view of water.

The food is consistently good and the cooking show is always entertaining. The sushi was very fresh. The beer menu is lacking.

First time at this restaurant, didn't know what to expect but we had a wonderful experience. The sushi was fantastic with 8 pieces per selection! Magic Mike from Kentucky who served us is a great guy who clearly enjoys his work and actually cares enough to listen for the answer when he asks you a question! Truly enjoyed the evening!

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

Dear Michael, thanks for the wonderful comments on our sushi.
