“Botched Hibachi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

I have been to Benihana's more than once in various locations. However, this particular time at this location seems as though nothing went correctly. My friend chose to have here birthday dinner there (and to Benihana's credit, they have an excellent birthday promotion. During the month of your birthday you can dine once with a $30 coupon. That can get you a whole lot of shrimp). We waited more than an hour to be seated. While the waitress was very kind, the drinks were terrible. The bartender must have been asleep at the bar. It took quite a long time for our chef to appear and he wasn't very engaging. He did his routine without barely saying a word. Usually they are more interactive and friendly. He even had a bit of an attitude when one of my friends was looking on her iPad instead of giving him her undivided attention. This trip to Benihana was borderline poor. I'm currently looking for a new hibachi hangout.

“Great food & entertaining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Good food...could be pricey. Kids love it! Tell them you're celebrating yourbirthday and they will take a free photo. May want to make a reservation as always full!

“Decent, very decent!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

First: this restaurant is not in Miramar Beach but in Miramar, FL (ZIP code 33027). There is more than 600 miles between these two very different towns. MIramar is a suburb of Fort Lauderdale.

This restaurant offers many Teppanyaki tables with cooks preparing food in front of guests. We opted not to go for Teppanyaki this time but have standard table. Food was good to fantastic. Their Sumo Roll is out of this world, phenomenal baked sushi. On the other side Spicy Tuna roll is not their strong dish. Dragon Roll is very good. Their beef dishes are great too. Food tasted fresh and was beautifully presented. Draft Japanese beer and nice choice of sake. Servers were all very friendly. Pleasant place I am sure we will be coming back to.
