For our party of 5 we had 7:00 reservations. We were served our soup at 8:00, which was cold. At 8:30 we were served our salad. By 9:00 we had lost our patience. The chef came to our table at 9:00 and was smart enough to see that we had lost our interest in a 'show'. But there was little... More

I attended with 5 co-workers. We were thoroughly entertained and had the best server! One of our group had never been to Benihana or a Japanese steakhouse. He was also from Sweeden. He had the best time ever! Dinner and a show! A fantastic time was had by all!

We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. The place was freezing cold. Others were complaining about the cold. The Food was average and overpriced. The bill was $90 for two including one drink each and tip. Probably will not go back.

Spectacular show. Awesome chef! Fresh sashimi for appetizer. Fried rice is always delish at Benihana!

Food was good but pretty pricey probably would not go again. Been to other hibachi style places food was about the same not a lot of veggies at this one and for the price I thought there would be more veggies. The main reason I would not go back is the price can get the same quality elsewhere.

It's been about 10 years since I've been to a Benihana.... probably another 10 years before I go again. It started with a valet that had an attitude. Yes, parking is tight but there should be options. We arrived shortly after opening for the dinner crowd. We had our choice of "tables" and took one overlooking the Intracoastal waterway. Unfortunately,... More

We were planning on meeting a group of friends over there for Happy Hour leading into dinner. When we got there, the only parking option was valet. The lot was empty, so we parked to the back, out of the way. The Valet came running over telling us that we couldn't park ourselves. I told him I understand it's complimentary... More

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.
