We knew other Benihana restaurants (Los Angeles, London) and we were a little deceived by this one. Food was excellent (the most important for a restaurant...) but as you know we go to Benihana for a second reason : the show at each table. And there it could have been better and more fun. In this restaurant, cookers, ensuring the... More

If we are visiting a town that has a Benihana we always try to get a meal there. This was our second time at this Benihaha. The building could definitely use some updates but I guess it has character. We went at night both times so we couldn't see anything but our Uber driver said there is an amazing view... More

We waited longer than expected to get seated. Chef was fun. Food was good. It can get quite noisy. The view is delightful. There is only valet parking - it is complimentary and quick.

I'm not crazy about spending nearly 3 hours for dinner but It was actually really good as far as the food goes and the chefs there are amazing and very entertaining...they engage you while cooking your food. I didn't have kids with me but if I did they would have loved the chef that's the only reason I give It... More

We visited Benihana every visit to Miami in the last 5 years. The kids loved the experience in the past. This time we made reservations 2 weeks prior to our visit for 7:30 pm We arrived at 7:15 and they took us to the table within 5 minutes after our check in. The carpet all around the table was so...

You will wait. And wait. Make a reservation a least a day ahead if you can but plan to wait for a chef and a waiter and the menu and the check and even the for them to pick up the check. Food is amazing with super fresh ingredients. Highly recommend the seafood though as the steak we ordered was... More

We went as a couple but shared our table with six other people. This can be a little scary because you never know what they like to eat. Just kidding, my favorite part is when you are able to taste different meals as the chef goes around and gives everyone a sample of the others dish. Our chef was funny... More

My husband really wanted to go here after going with family in Orlando. We reserved for 6 pm. Was seated after 10 mins, was not busy, waited almost 25 mins before they decide noone else would be joining our table to take our order. Our server did not speak English well, so I believe this is where the rest of... More

Soon after sitting we ordered one of their jumbo drinks for $30. Like most places it's full of ice all the way to the brim, but it was really good! I wish I could recall the name of the drink, but it came as a recommendation from the waitress. I want to say it was shark attack, but I'm unsure.... More
