Benihana - San Francisco

Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.



Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!



A 4% surcharge will be added to your bill for San Francisco employer mandates.

"Always forget that this is show while the meal is being prepared and there is a rhythm is kind of set. Not for someone in a tight time schedule, but really fun and great conversation place."

"I took my kids here for the Cherry Blossom Festival every year for lunch. You have to make reservations as they do not accept walk ins. Lunch menu is about the same price as the Kids’ Menu. Food was good, but service seems kind of rush. Fried Rice had too much soy sauce this round as it was a little too salty. Not sure if the management ever tasted their own food before serving to customers. Maybe that's why I only come once a year just for the festival."

"We came to celebrate my son's birthday. The food was great and we enjoyed very much looking at our chef on action when he grilled our meats and seasoned our veggies and rice. This is not a place to bring a date if you're looking for a romantic atmosphere. It's a great spot for groups. The prices are actually reasonable if you take into account the fun you get at seeing your chef cooking your meals in front of you."
