A dull day on holiday was brightened by our lunch at Benihana. The cloudy weather did not spoil the views over the inter coastal waterway and the passing boats. Service was polite and rapid. This was our first experience of a Benehana and the waitress was helpful with the menu. The vegetarian was well catered for and seafood was good.... More

We made reservation using Open Table for 7:30pm. It was my son's birthday. We got there at exactly 7:25pm a few minutes to spare. The hostess told us it was going to be only a few minutes. We ended up waiting for 1 hour and 15 minutes. By the time we had the dinner one of my kids was sleeping... More

Sets on the Intracoastal, just west of the Atlantic Ocean, beautiful blue ceramic tile roof. The decor with the china vases, and ceramic tile is always amazing. They have a long bar along the wall in the main entrance. They also have another room with a raw bar. This has been my fourth visit, and I have been setting on... More

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.
