Benihana - Carlsbad

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!

"We had a very nice birthday celebration at the Benihana in Carlsbad. The food was good not great. We had kids in our party and the food prep at the table provided great entertainment. The service was not as good as normal and the chef was new so the "wow" factor was low."

"Made the reservation on Open Table for a party of 4 - earliest available was 8:15pm and the reservation was made at 4pm. Arrived at 8:05, and was told they would sit us at our reservation time - at 8:30 we asked how much longer and were told they were trying to sit us. Now I understand they try to fill an area (cook table) but there were plenty of people waiting for tables. At 8:40, I asked the 'girls' that were the hostesses giggling and chatting if we were going to get seated soon? At 8:45 we were escorted along with a group of 4 to our table. This was our only complaint - the waitress was fantastic and attentive, the chef "David" was humorous and engaging and the food was very tasty!"

"good food and great service
The meal started a little slow because the waiter forgot to turn on the burner. But he recovered and provided great service. The food was well prepared and quite tasty. Benihana is not cheap, but nothing good in this world is cheap. It was a fair price for a good meal for the friends and family."

"What I liked most was both the service and convenient location. I was staying at the Grand Pacific Palisades Spa and Resort. There is a paucity of nearby good dining sites in Carlsbad ... unless one is willing to travel more than 5 miles.
Compared to other Benihana sites, I liked the clean, large, open-space environment too."
