Description: Welcome to a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well as your taste buds. 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.

“Always a fun experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Been to this location over a dozen times and always the treat it is expected to be. The host staff is pleasant and welcoming. The wait staff is very courteous and attentive and the chefs are entertaining to say the least. Food is slightly over priced but well worth it given the ambiance this place provides. Reservations are highly recommended, especially for busy nights. Overall a wonderful experience each and every time.

“Happy Hour and Birthday special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is a great place to go for happy hour - the food and drink prices were good. We had dinner in the bar area so that one of us could have the FREE birthday meal (30dollar value) and the other could take advantage of the happy hour prices. Overall it was just okay. We haven't had dinner in the dining room but the free and happy hour stuff is worth it. Not super clean in the bar area. But fun and laid back.

“Consistant Service, Great Meal, Every time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Everytime we enjoy a meal at the Coral Gables Benihana, it's always the same. Great service, wonderful Chef's, and a tasty meal. Maybe we get great service because we already know the staff and are nice to the Chef's, don't know. I do know, the food is always great and the friend rice is the best around. Go with your family for a great time.

“Mixed results”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

My young son loved the action, but this is really a tourist place. The food was not at all inventive, or unique, but it was overpriced. Service was poor. There are many other options in Coral Gables that will inspire you.
