It was great thanks a million I enjoyed my visit they it gets better each time
The guy who cooked didn’t do any tricks whatsoever
Got there 18:40 our reservation was for 18:45 (me my daughter and my husband) we were celebrating our anniversary. We wait around 15 min to have a seat, our table wasn’t close to the window we tried to explain to the manager that was our anniversary if he could move us to another table even if we have to wait a little more but he said he couldn’t do anything. My daughters plates was dirty because the exhaust fan it was leaking .
We order the food with white rice... the chef who came to our table didn’t interact with our daughter she was very excited but he didn’t say any word to her, when he finished cooking we ask about the rice, and the chef told the manger in front of our table “I need 2 white rice” but they brought the rice when we finished eating around 20 min later... Terrible experience
Very nice loved it had a great birthday for my mother in law
The food was really good. Our Chef was not entertaining, he just cooked the food and the smoke from the grill was flying in our faces. Other than that I enjoyed it with friends.
It was my birthday and my first time going and I really enjoyed it
Horrible food and horrible service
Our chef and our waiter was fantastic and I recommend them to everybody
I have been to several locations and this location is absolutely ran down ! It need new EVERYTHING- Food was good and the service was just ok. Made a reservation but I still waited 20 minutes to be seated, and that was only after I grabbed the manager’s attention
Horrible service food and it was hot we hell we have been going there every time we visit for 20
Years and it was the worst ever
The food was disgusting. It had no taste. We ordered appetizers that we never received and they tried to charge us for it. I will not go there again.
Was not happy with the chef that cooked dog food the food was halfway burnt and that was not enjoyable because basically you couldn't taste the spice or the seasoning that supposed to be on the food you taste more of the burtness
Fun filled time for a birthday occasion.. I would recommend again
Vacation it was great
I seem to have problems with wait when I don’t have a reservation I wait for almost 2 hours and everyone with reservations get in right away. When I do have a reservation I still wait. I’m like is it me or what.
Long wait even with reservation. Wait for everything from getting seated, ordering, getting food and getting the check.
Filthy!!!! I mean filthy bathroom!! I will never returned because of the waste of my time in waiting and filthy bathroom!! Food is good! Chef was super nice! But how often can you afford 3+ hours of dinning and most of the time were spent on waiting?!
Cook was great, food was good, took forever to get refills on drinks and waited 15 minutes for to go boxes and then another 20 to pay. Arrived at 12:15 left a 2:45.
My reservation was at 7:55PM I showed up at 7:20PM and I had to ask
Multiple times PAST my reservation time when I’ll be sat, I did not sit to eat filled 8:20Pm. The cook I had was good and he had great customer service. But the lady at the front desk seemed to overwhelmed and had and attitude. Why would I make a reservation if I won’t be sat till ALMOST an HOUR after I made my reservation
Worst benihana experience ever.

The manager called me out for being “out of dress code” and gave me a jacket. All I was wearing was high rise flowy pants with an elegant bralette. He brought me over a jacket and told me to cover up! There was absolutely nothing wrong with my outfit as I felt that I was within the dress code since I was dressed elegantly, I felt like I was getting body shamed. The table I was at was outraged as well at the situation and some of the Benihana workers were too. If Benihana wants to stand strong with their “dress code” they need to enforce people wearing Nike slides and flips flops as well.
out right worst benihana in south florida... horrible service from hostest manager and servers... chef okay but not memorable,,, i love benihana just wont return to the one in ftlauderdale EVER
The chef we had was gr8
The experience was awesome. I COVID-19 change was assuring. Chef, food, drinks and server was great. I can't wait to go back.
When I walked in and said I had a reservation, the young lady told me to have a seat and she would be with me in a moment. After about 10 minutes I was called to be seated. I arrived on time for my reservation.
The service was good, but a little slow. It took the chef at least 40 minutes before they came to our table. He was very energetic and responsive. The waitress was amazing and had a bubbly personality, which is always nice.
The restaurant itself seemed dated and dingy. Overall clean enough, but needs some updates.
Also, the drinks were NOT strong at all.
Appetizers are over priced and very small portion for the cost.
Great service and great food. Sparkles prepared our meals and was very friendly, had great jokes, and hit the food temperatures right on the mark.
They put you at a table with other ppl and one of the other people kept coughing the whole time
Nicole our waitress and Wesley our table side cook gave excellent service.
And all the condiments, sauces and cooked food was eye appealing and delicious.
This location is a favorite of ours going on many years.
You should dine there,
you'll love it.
I love this place! I drive an hour just to eat at this Benihana’s. Very clean, Great food and an amazing staff. ❤️
Lovely place the food was great we had a fabulous time
Everything was perfect and very relaxing and enjoyable. They did an excellent job of preparing for the reopening phase.
Server Nicole was awesome & Chef did a great job with the food !!
It was amazing!
Benihana is know for great food m a show
We got ok food with no show
The waiter started good but was gone and everyone was looking for refills on beverages and needed the waiter who was on the other side of the restaurant
This location has gone down hill it’s awful

Service was slow. Appetizer came out cold. Replacement was warm, but barely. Hibachi food was good, just took a long time to get started. Meal took nearly 2 hours from seating to departure. Very disappointed.

Mario the cook was very boring and not good energy. Larenzo our server was GREAT. His energy was fun. Because we had 1 person at the table with a food allergy that the rest of us (7 people) food was cold by the time we got our food. I feel if someone has a food allergy that there food should be cook in the back. If I come back and Mario going to be my cook I'm getting up and request another cook.

Booked a table for 7.30. Seated 8.30. Waited for chef 20 min with no drinks while waiting.
Party of 6 (sober) were declined an order of 6 drinks in the bar because one was not present (restroom).
Chef not entertaining at all but food met expectations. Not worth the price at all.
Counted to 6 birthday parties at the same time and they were all entertained by the staff (very nice event but 6 birthdays in the same sitting and almost at the same time?).
