Benihana is not just convenient for those who vacation at the next door Hyatt Winward Pointe; it is a nice change of pace from the conch fritter and burger joints of Old Town and the Historic Waterfront.

Delicious hibachi and sushi. Great drinks. We had a large party when we were there so we had to be split into two tables, very entertaining dining experience.

Great steak / Japanese fusion with a twist.... we had quite simply an amazing meal - the chefs cooking at your table was a delight. We'll be visiting if ever we are in Key West again - a very special restaurant and a great family experience.

This is the best of any Benihana's restaurants ever. The staff is amazing and fun. It is my grandsons favorite place. Whether with kids or not the food is wonderful and the view of the ocean is gorgeous. The same man has owned it since it opened and his attention to detail shows.

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.
