Description: Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. And don’t forget our delicious sushi appetizers, including fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all made with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

We had not been to Benihana in Lauderdale by the Sea (LBTS) in over 15 years and we were surprised and a bit apprehensive when my daughter wanted to do her birthday celebration with 3 of her 13 year old friends there. This Benihana is a fixture in LBTS, having been there for at least 40 plus years, which for... More

This is an amusing place. Remember enjoying it more first visit. Second time around you know the drill with the tricks done by the chefs at the table. Ok food but the service is a lottery. Some really good and some don't know squat about the menu. Will wait a couple of years before next time.

In the past, Benihana has been a restaurant of choice for family celebrations. We visited this location on Monday with a 6:30 p.m. reservation, to celebrate our 47th anniversary with our son and his family. We were escorted to our seats promptly upon arrival. However, we waited 30 minutes to be greeted at our table. About 10 minutes after placing... More

The kids always enjoy coming to this place they are entertained by the chef cooking at the table the little show the chef puts on etc. The food is good and the restaurant has good parking and can take a bigger family of eight to ten at one table. Very similar to other Benihanis around the country so you know... More

I have been to Benihana's Happy Hour several times and it is one of the best around. The food options they have on their happy hour menu is amazing and for an equally amazingly low price. However, their service at the bar is lacking. Numerous times I have had to remind the bartender about a drink I ordered over 5... More

We were invited to an engagement party and the only reason we went to this restaurant was that they could supposedly handle the group of 25 we had (originally we were going to Las Olas). We all trickled in and arrived on time for our 9:30 reservation. We were seated some time before 11 in spite of having a RESERVATION.... More

We love Japanese steakhouses and frequent them often. Benihana has the reputation as the leader and the best. They are also one of the priciest but we decided to give it a try. The hostesses were rude and acted as if speaking to us was a great inconvenience to put our name on the list for a seat. The wait... More

I'd say we go to hibachi once or twice per year, and the experience is generally the same - Good dinner and an entertaining show. This location provided half of that experience. The dinner was tasty, but the entertaining show was missing. Service was good, and there's no beating the birthday club $30 discount. Overall, a very acceptable experience.
