A great evening of dining....The sushi was delicious and the hibachi service was very good. The food was prepared very well and the fried rice was terrific...Drinks were very good. Our chef was very personable and cooked the food at a very nice pace....The "jumbo shrimps" were not so jumbo but all in all, the meal was very nice....

Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us. I will be checking into the jumbo shrimp this evening to ensure we are using the correct specific size which I am confident we are. Hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, Mark H - Owner More

We had another fantastic dinner last Saturday: the food is always amazing, the "show" put on by the chefs are fun and the consistency is something we count on.

We arrived at 8 pm. The restaurant was not very busy. Had steak hibachi that was bland. The timing was off on veggies. Onion wasn't served until after everyone was done dinner. Salad was not very good.

The beauty of having your chef cook in front of you is that you can request extra seasoning as needed. Our chefs are always willing to add garlic butter to your steak and your server will always bring extra ginger based dressing for your salad. Hope to serve you again and please don't hesitate to ask.

We've eaten at a few Benihanas around the world so we know what we are getting. The experience really depends on the chef and ours was pretty good - he made it a fun evening.

'P.F. BENIHANA' is probably never a first-choice restaurant for me because of the Americanized Asian fare, but when on the road .. .. :))) Like this location next to the airport and is if you decide against the 'Tepan' show, and sit in the SUSHI BAR area, you can get a really nice table facing the Atlantic side of the...

We love Benihana and always try to go whenever in a location that has one. We have been to this location in the past and were looking forward to returning. We were in town to celebrate a birthday and made reservations a month out. Our initial experience on arrival was not great. I have been to 6-7 Benihana locations in... More

Benihana is a favorite restaurant of my son so it was his pick for dinner. The food was as expected, traditional BH cuisine. Our chef was wonderful, very engaging and infused the conversation with humor. We would go back!

I have been to Benihana's before and this one was fine. Having been to other non-chain Japanese steakhouses that were exceptional, it is hard to give it 5 stars. The food was lacking in garlic and other flavors. The vegetables were all cooked and served separately, and arrived at different times; a pile of onions arriving last on the plate... More

Our last dinner at Key West, we chose Benihana, glad we did. It was convenient to our condo, easy to get reservations. We watched the sunset on the waterfront before our 6pm reservation, then enjoyed dinner skillfully prepared in front of us. Our community table (four of us, two other couples, all strangers before dinner) had various food allergies and... More
