Even with current Virus , watched busboy not sanitize table, didnot wipe down chairs or other high touch area's. Simply wiped it with a norma white rag. Very disappointed
with manager that nite as well . We are long time patrons of thisplace, and have watched managers come and go, This new one takes the cake.

Service was terrible, waited over 1:30min for a service, which NEVER HAPPENED. THE MANAGER CAME TO MY TABLE 1:15MIN LATER TO INFORMED THE SERVER WILL BE OUT IN HALF OF A MIN AS WELL SHE'LL TAKE 20% OF MY BILL. WE AGREED, WAITED 15MIN LATER STILL NO ONE CAME OVER, AT THIS POINT WE WERE OVER IT AND DECIDED TO LEAVE. I MADE MY RSV 2 DAYS AGO TO CELEBRATE MY SON'S BIRTHDAY, HE AS WELL MY FAMILY ARE ALL DISAPPOINTED WITH THE SERVICE WE RECEIVED. I WILL SEND ANOTHER REVIEW ON YELP. THIS IS BEYOND DISRESPECTFUL, DISAPPOINTED..

I went about 6 months ago and had a HORRIBLE chef (food was thrown all around and off the grill, food was undercooked, his shirt was VERY dirty, no personality or real hibachi experience) and I said I would never go back ...but i did.........a totally different chef but the SAME EXACT experience!

After complaining, the manager saw the deficiencies and did reduce our bill but the experience and food were of such poor quality that I WILL NEVER go back to the one in Coral Springs.... unfortunately, the Ft Lauderdale location seems to require a higher standard for their patrons.

PS.. the bartender did take great pride in making the lychee martinis for us and they were delish.

reservation was @ 6 we were seated at 6:30 we were a party of 8 and taken to a table with 6 chairs
we told the hostess we needed two more chairs and she walked away so we had to find two chairs for ourselves ... the server apologized twice for the long wait to have a chef for our table which was over a half an hour...server was nice but didn’t refresh our drinks... food was good but chef didn’t do the “show” ie flames and lighting the onions and as chefs did at the tables around us...
for each course we each were asked if we wanted soup, salad, rice, etc
the chef never gave us a choice between rices and never told us there was an upcharge for rice,
so that upcharge was a surprise when the bill was presented and finally
we tipped well despite all this but feel the bill should say “gratuity” instead of “service charge “ because that seems purposely misleading as well

Didnt like that I had reservations for some friends from out of town come have dinner there to not experience the full effect because there was a family with young kids that didn’t want to see “fire” so instead of asking the if we were ok with it they just decided to move on without letting my party of 4 enjoy the experience. Very upsetting

I have been going to Benihana's for many years now and have always enjoyed it. The food is always good and the service is equally as impressive. This visit was the worst I have ever had. It started with the waited and continued with the chef. In addition when we told the manager she basically down played it. I will go back again but if the same thing happens it will be my last time. There were 8 of us at the table and we all had issues. The waiter was unorganized and messed up several drink and food orders. The chef didn't understand the ticket and ended up burning the food as he wasn't sure who ordered what. The manager's position was that we ate the food and should have called her to the table earlier. I explained that we didn't know about the burnt food until after it was served.

Our waitress and meal were excellent! The staff were awesome and accommodating to our tight schedule. BUT the bartender was slow as molasses and the bar wasn’t that busy (2 patrons at best) nor was the restaurant when we arrived. We would have purchased more drinks but he was simply too slow to produce them . We were only 4 people. But overall it was a great experience.

My husband and I love hibachi style cuisine and wanted to try Benihana for his birthday on Sunday, January 19th, 2020. We had a reservation for 7pm and were sat immediately with a group of men who seemed to be on a business trip. Our waiter came by 1-3 times when we first sat down to greet us and take our drink order. We waited probably 20+ minutes to get our first drink - mine was a margarita and my husband ordered an LIT. I kid you not, the margarita was solely sour mix and this is coming from someone who only recently began enjoying the taste of tequila so I can always taste it in my drinks. My husband couldn't even drink it and he loves all things sweet or sour, it was extremely sour. The LIT was strong but we'll never complain about too much alcohol. I think ordered a glass of wine after telling our waiter that the drink was not made well - and then waited another 20 minutes to receive the wine which literally just had to be poured from a bottle. The gentleman at our table were also upset at the poor service as they made many comments and even pointed out that their order was wrong. The cooking portion of the dinner started about 45 minutes after we sat at the table and several other tables around us had already been eating when they were sat after we were. The food was good and we liked our cook but the service was so bad at an expensive restaurant that we will not return. I'm not sure if our waiter was new or just wasn't getting help from management but every other table/waiter seemed to have things under control. The manager removed the bad margarita from our bill after we asked the server to but never came over to apologize. As we were leaving, the gentleman at our table were requesting to speak to the manager. I think we may have just had a bad, one off experience but management should be checking on tables through the evening and making sure their staff have things under control.

My husband used to love going to your restaurant for date night. Saturday we came in at 7:45 and was told we would not be able to be seated until 9:30. I almost left and just decided to make the reservation on open table. We got back at 9:15 and was greeted by a hostess who stated we would be seated in few minutes. 9:45 we were finally seated and was greeted 10 minutes later by our waiter Thomas. We was so slow and did not know anything about the menu. He mixed up drink orders and was confused about what we were asking. Our Cook was great and helped the overall experience but we were never asked if we wanted another drink and we had to ask for a utensils. Dinner was finished but it took forever for us to receive the check so I kindly asked THomas for the Check. He brought it over and I gave the form of payment which was a gift card and my credit card. It took another 15 minutes to get my card. We didn't leave the restaurant until 11:45.. I don't know that I will ever go back.
