Benihana - Newport Beach

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!

"Restaurant was not that busy, even with our confirmed reservation, we were still told to sit and wait for 10 minutes. No big deal.
The food was just so so.
The worst part of our whole experience was our teppanyaki chef - Rey. He was a complete DUD! Zero personality, was unfit for his job! He asked if we were celebrating anything, I told him, yes, my birthday. He mumbled, "happy birthday". Other tables had birthday celebrations and the crew came and sang to them. Me, nothing.....
Very, very disappointed and will not return.
Hint to Benihana Mangament: Please hire chef's that enjoy their job, that is at least 1/5 of the reason we come to a teppanyaki grill. We (humans) enjoy entertainment."

"It's been a while since I've been to Benihana. Our chef was ok as far as being entertaining but the food was slightly over cooked. The flavor was no where near as good as I remember. I used to love their fried rice and it just didn't taste good enough to eat that much starch. I noticed that hardly any butter was used to cook which likely contributed to their bland flavor. In the end less butter is probably healthier but if I wanted healthy I would have ordered it with less butter."

"Beninaha food taste is not as good as it is used to,
they don't have bean sprouts and no fried garlic,
the fried rice is too hard, the filet mignon is not as tasty,
it is more about entertainment by the chef, but not about the taste...
our server is also looks tired and stress..
she was friendly at the beginning but at near the end of the shift, she is like having a bad mood... maybe she is tired... she also don't return to our table to check on our water...
I was about to give only 15% tips but I feel bad and give a bit more like 17%...
now I regret it though... they don't deserve the extra tips...

"Our chef wasn't very interactive. I found myself and the rest of our party watching other chefs and their table ooohing and ahhhing. Felt like we missed out! Also, the chef didn't cook enough food, had to get 2 more pieces of chicken after he was done cooking everything, which left some of us eating after others were done. A little bummed, when we spent over $200 on dinner."

"We were seated close to our reservation time. The staff is friendly and the service was not bad since it was very busy that evening. My family celebrates birthdays going out with the family. It is fun to have dinner and watch them cook it in front of you. I would like to try lunch sometime. We had no complaints about the food. They need a larger waiting area but the rest was very good."
