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.

Nice atmosphere but not as good as they use to be

We went here for my birthday while on vacation with a group of 3 adults 2 teens and 2 toddlers. The food was good but I expected more portions for the price. We were served more fried and steamed rice than anything. I remember that the Chefs use to be more entertaining. This is what made going to... read more

The restaurant is located on the water and that is the only good thing about the restaurant. The carpet is dirty and disgusting. The tables are the smallest you will ever see in a hibachi restaurant with barely enough space for 4, but they seat 6 at the tables. The hibachi show is boring and unentertaining.

I'm not sure why so many bad reviews but I wanted to find out by myself: I made a reservation for the next day. When we arrived, we were greeted at the front and were given a buzzer. We went to the bar and a friendly bartender served us a small bottle of Sake. We were not even done with... More

If you are having a birthday or any type of celebration, this is the restaurant to visit, you will get your private table for a large group. Lunches are my favorite, the lunch menu is more economical and the view of the Intracoastal with the parade of private yachts going by is unique in the World.

We made a reservation in advance for table of two for a hibachi chef,however when we arrived we got chaos! There was no greeting or organizational skills when we arrived. As a matter of fact there was nobody to greet you for at least 15 minutes so we sat.When a hostess did arrive there still was no greeting, thank you... More

We decided to go to this particular restaurant with another family because of its location. The restaurant has a wonderful view as it sits in the east side of intercoastal waterway. Unfortunately, the view was about as good as it got for us. The hibachi area seemed unclean and was very narrow (I DO NOT RECOMMEND for families with children)... More

I went with my best friend to celebrate a job promotion and everything was great! All of the staff was phenomenal they were all happy to serve us. The drinks were amazing! The chef was the best chef I ever had at a Benihana. The location was perfect right on the water is so beautiful! I had a great time!

I debated four stars because I am picky, but I had to be fair- food and drinks were and always are awesome. They do it top notch there and the vegetarian tofu steak was awesome. We dine hibachi all the time and Benihana is better than the competition. The view there is better than most restaurants around. The chefs are... More

Once again I selected an entrée from the lunch special menu. The hibachi chicken seemed like a prudent choice. It was served with vegetable rice and grilled veggies. This entrée was very tasty, made even more so by the two dishes of sauces that accompanied it. One was a mustard sauce; the other sauce was ginger based. I dipped pieces... More
