We had a terrific time and really enjoyed the events thanks to our chef Michael! He turned the rice into a swordfish!

Chef's are very entertaining and cook fabulous dinners. We did not need reservations and all the staff were very friendly. There was more food than I could eat.

Thanks for writing. Some people do not realize how much food is served with our entrees. Soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, entree, fresh vegetables, steamed rice, hot green tea and dessert included with our combination meals. All cooked before your very eyes on the Atlantic with a view of the sunset (this time of year) in Key West! Hope to see... More

We thankfully made reservations and they are needed. The waiter kept our drinks refilled and they have great lemonade and mojitos! The sumo sushi roll was amazing and our chef was very nice and we enjoyed his company! However the main entree was just okay. Just typical rice veggies and meat. Good show and atmosphere and service though and good... More

Thank you for dining with us! The Sumo Roll is one of my personal favorites as well and is a meal in itself. Remember, you can always reserve a dinner for 2 on the ocean in our sushi lounge. Your sushi will be prepared by our sushi chefs and your hot items prepared in our sushi kitchen. Hope to see... More

Waitress was horrible at her job. George the chef was fantastic. The show he put on was worth the price but food wasn't. Hate eating with strangers, especially with kids that touch all the sauce bowls

I am glad you enjoyed Chef George and would like more information on the rest. Please note that you can get the same hot grilled items at your own table in our oceanfront sushi dining room sans the Chef cooking at your table. We have a flat grill inside the sushi kitchen for this purpose. Hope you will try us... More

We had the pleasure of dining and talking with some of the locals while enjoying a delicious dinner. We've eaten at other Benihana restaurants, as well as, other hibachi/Japanese steakhouses and this one is towards the top of list. The food quality and service was great. It hit the spot and did not disappoint.

They got both orders wrong, the person that came to cook for us was in a very bad mood and was even rude to us, when we asked something he seemed to be mad at us. The cook just threw the food on the stove and heated it...no tricks, nothing...when we received the bill they charged us 18% for the... More

OK.... it's not local flair but it is a popular restaurant that we don't have in our area so decided to try on our last night in Key West. We were looking for a restaurant that wasn't outdoors, someplace we could sit and talk without blaring live music and humidity! Benihana's fit the bill. Dinner was the usual teppanyaki, quality...
