Benihana remains the same over the years, and that is not good considering how competition is moving. The cooks are less and less Japanese-like, and the whole experience is watered down. No new tricks, no new food, no new anything. And added to this, the restaurant decor is low quality and does not even try to get you to think... More

We've been to a Benihana resto in Florida before. This is only the second time for me. The place was nicely decorated. We were a group of 8 which was perfect for one table grill. We saw smaller groups seated with other smaller groups to make it to one grill table. I like the volcano antic our chef made using... More

I tried Passion fruit lemonade and spicy hibachi chicken, which was really good.The Chef did lot of fun stuff for us and entertained us with his tricks! The food was also... More

We went for a special occasion and ended up spending over $60 just for a basic dinner and we drank water. The hibachi steak was tender but the vegetables, the meat, and even the fried rice was way under-seasoned. Even with the sauce that they provided, the whole meal was very bland. Just some basic seasoning like salt-and-pepper would've made... More

Japanese-style hibachis service with wide choice of entress - steak, chicken, shrimp, lobster. The service is very good and a great setting for a family or friends celebration.

The food was good. But I guess too expensive, ideally good for birthdays, special events, meetings (in the sushi bar area)

As I waited staff was very friendly & helpful. Did not take 45 minutes either. More like 15-20min. We were 5 minutes from lunch ending. So had to... More

Welcome to a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice and dice through mouth-watering steak and tender chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and temaki sushi, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
