We went to Benihana to celebrate Lunar New Year, and overall we had a good experience. The food was delicious as you'd expect, but the rest of the experience was disjointed and average at best. We weren't seated until 8:10, despite our 7:30 reservation (our...More

If you haven't eaten at a Benihana, go now. Yes, it's a chain. Who cares? You get great food,,prepared by entertaining chefs, right at your table. And the view! It is on the Intercoastal,,so request the section with that view. A family with small children...More

Went here for a family gathering and we had the best time. We had Joel as our cook and he was simply amazing. Very funny, engaged everyone and his cuisine was perfection. Great experience and we will definitely be back.

I've gone to this Benihana often and always had a great time. We mainly order steaks but I enjoy their sushi offerings as well. There is valet parking. When you are finished eating - if it's still light outside- take a stroll behind the restaurant...More

Not something I know but I do know the place is managed very poorly and in need of a major facelift.

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.
