The view from this restaurant is breathtaking. The water from the bay is so blue and pretty. The bartender told me that I might see some dolphins in the water. It is a very romantic restaurant. It's perfect fpr a first date. The food was delicious. Our hibachi chef was not very entertaining, but he was nice. The portions are... More

Came here with family, while on vacation. I love the Las Vegas roll, but it wasn't the best I've had. I could tell they had it waiting because the breading was cold, but otherwise everything else was really good.

We arrived at 9:07 pm Still no water by 9:27. Chef must've been brand-new he was not very good didn't even do the choo-choo train onion stack or the crack the egg on the spatula trick.

On a recent trip to Miami, we went to the restaurant without a reservation. We were seated very quickly. Our chef was great and hysterical! The food was good and large portions were served. The only negative is the mandatory valet parking.

I visited with a friend on Friday for dinner and drinks, the fry rice and shrimp was pretty good. The drinks however, were delicious, they have a great mojito, Because of that I went back Saturday and Sunday sat at the bar for the mojito. The bar staff were very friendly as well!

After so many years visiting this location, las three times were very upsetting. ONE HOUR JUST TO SEE THE CHEFF!!! Terrible! Very hungry to handle any cheff show, the waiting was horrible. 3pm on wednesday, come on! Four tables in the hole floor and one hour waiting... no way! In my opinion is lack of personal.

Although we live nearby, this was the first time we had tried this Benihana. It always seems to be packed, and the night we dined was no exception. Although we had reservations, we waited a full 30 minutes before we were taken to a table, and another 10 minutes before a waitress came to take our drink orders. The restaurant... More

Have been to several Benihana restaurants before. This one was awful. The restaurant staff were clueless. The chef didn't know what he was doing. The food was poor - some of it inedible. A shame, as this place used to be great. Terrible experience
