Benihana - Broomfield Ratings and Reviews

I was disappointed that we were not seated until half an hour after our reservation time. They apparently were short on chefs. Once we started getting our food, it was entertaining and good food. But the entire evening and our remaining plans suffered severely because of the lack of preparedness. The manager did try to make it right with some starters, but that's about it.

The air conditioner must not have been working properly. It was hotter inside the restaurant than outside. Our chef was nice enough but we could tell that he only been working there a few weeks. It started out fine with the shrimp appetizer and the fried rice. But then the food came slowly and out of order? He started cooking the steak and lobster for my family. And some steak and chicken for another family that we were sharing the table with. We were served and were almost finished when the lady from other family asked about her salmon. Her fish hadn't been started yet. After cooking her fish then he proceeded to cook the zucchini. But we were already finished with our main course. Then after we were served the zucchini he then started cooking the onions. By that time all of us had a small pile of onions on an otherwise empty plate. I guess the chef just needs some practice cooking things together in a timely manner. The dinner was ok but the sushi left a lot to be desired. Won't be ordering that again.

It was pretty good. The chef forgot the shrimp that came with the same meal (rocky) that we all ordered until after dessert and decided to make it in the kitchen and had the waitress bring it out then.

I was very disappointed in my visit this time.A lady and her daughter at our table were adamant about their food being cooked first because they were vegetarian and didn't want any of their food to touch any meat. I think this threw the chef off and wasn't comfortable doing his normal acts. If I had it to do over,I would ask to be seated at a different table or just leave.

We had a great time there. We had a certificate that was sent for my birthday that made it an extraordinary value. I had steak and scallops that were cooked to my taste even though the chef also cooked for 5 others at our table. He was friendly and enhanced our experience greatly. Definitely recommend.

We waited for our table even though we had a reservation. The rice was good however the steak and chicken lacked flavor. The portions were small. Our chef was focused on other patrons he related with more.

Our Hibachi chef was very outgoing and friendly. Our waitress was very slow on keeping our drinks filled. She would only get refills when we called her and asked for it.
Hit and miss
We go to Benihana for pretty much all bday celebrations in our family - this time I felt that the service was not so good, the chef kept telling us how tired he was (besides his off color jokes, there were four kids at the table) . They didn't offer to take the traditional pic, and frankly, after asking so many times when my drink was going to show up, I gave up on asking... Too bad the attitudes couldn't match the quality of the food- I'm pretty sure it's hit and miss with whomever you have the luck to be your chef, so overall I would still recommend Benihana to my friends.
on5/28/16. The was busy but no excuse. Server was hard to understand and did not come around to see if we needed anything. The cook had no personality, didn't talk, the food was over cooked.

Though it took awhile to get sat, our reservation was at 7:15pm and got seated at 7:40, everything was great. The server was great even when she was dealing with a few needy guests at our table. And the chef, Israel made a memorable night for my kids.
Great food but the service by the person getting your drinks was really slow and they didn't offer the ice cream that came with our meals.

We made a reservation but still waited an hour to be seated. We then waited another 30 min for the chef. During that time the waitress was not very attentive. The soup wasn't hot and basically broth and scraps of mushroom and fried onion. The salad was in a tiny bowl. The fried rice cooked was not enough for the whole table. The flavor of the food was good. The waitress didn't offer the sorbet that came with the meal in the end.

Food was good
Food was good. But not worth the price. Service was exceptional. They are very attentive and friendly.
Overpriced bad service
Our server was inattentive and had a rude attitude when we asked for drink refills, the food was undercooked and way overpriced for what it was. They need to offer more soup and salad options including dressing.

Had to wait 15 minutes even though we had a reservation and were treated dismissively by the hostess. Had to wait a long time for drinks and refills. Waitress forgot some of the rice bowls and we didn't get the green tea. You get very little and very basic food for the high price. Total ripoff. Should have known better - this is just a gimmick type place. Similar to the kind of poor experience you get at a Melting Pot, etc.

The standards at Benihana have dropped significantly over the last year or two. The staff seem OK, but he quantity and quality of food items has decreased. Still worth going to occasionally, but not nearly as good an experience which leaves the door open for other options.

Friendly staff, delicious food, & prompt service as always. We'll definitely be back!
This trip i had ordered the trio but wanted to substitute lobster tail for the shrimp. I had expected an upgrade charge but an additional $18 was rediculous. It cant possibley have been that much more. My wife ordered a bottle of wine that was a mini bottle, also disappointing. My wife dropped her salad bowl and it broke, the waitress seamed appaled and made her upset as we were with our whole family. My wife and I try to come twice a year but the last to trips we have had issues. We may look elsewhere to celebrate from now on. When it is this pricy we should walk away satisfied every time. We spent $314 and wish we had just went to chili's.

Fun for Kids
Great place for taking your child on their birthday! They made a 12th birthday very fun.
Once we were seated (with 4 kids), our group of 7 waited 90 minutes for the chef to come out and start preparing the meal. Overpriced, mediocre food and not worth the 3-4 hour timeframe it takes to actually eat a meal here.

It took over 1 hour from the time we were seated until a chef showed up at our table began preparing our meal.
Entertaining but slow
Always fun, but very slow that night-- not enough chefs in the house. But, with the birthday coupon it's a good deal.
Slow service, good experience
We went to this Benihana recently for a coworker's birthday lunch. We assumed the "Express Lunch" on their menu would cater to the business luncher's need to get in and out in 60 minutes, but we were there for almost 30 minutes before our order was even taken. Our chef was great once he came out, funny, efficient, etc. It took another 20 minutes to get our bill after we were all done eating. The actual dining experience was great, the speed of the before and after meal portion could definitely be improved upon.

Our waiter quit halfway through our meal. We asked another waiter for refills and the next course and he said he already had 4 tables. The manager finally helped us but was very short and obviously very busy. Not a pleasant dining experience.
The food, service, and show was amazing! Such a friendly staff.
Too little for too much.
The food was prepared in a wonderful atmosphere, but The value was not there. What You got was so little compared to the price. I Would not go back.

The whole thing was amazing! The atmosphere was just right not to quiet but not to loud and the food was delicious!
We go to Benihana's all the time but this time the service was poor and the food was very Blan! The chef was entertaining but again the food wasn't up to par.

Chef was great he was enthusiastic and atmosphere was what I expected. The black cherry and plum Manhattan was fabulous from the bar....overall great job everyone.
You come here for one reason:
...and that reason is for the fun of having someone cook your food right in front of you. That entertaining aspect hasn't changed over the years, and is still fun. The food is decent-to-good and prices are reasonable. The house cocktails my boyfriend and I tried weren't great; I'd likely order a more classic cocktail or stick to wine next time. Overall, we had a fine, fun dinner, but there's nothing here to blow your socks off.
Excellent dinner and fun!
An evening at Benihana's is one that everyone has to try at least once...or on every family birthday, as is the case in ours! We love going for many reasons starting with the great food. The menu has a wonderful variety of choices for adults and kids and the drinks include alcohol or non-alcoholic beverages. If you join their Birthday Club, you get a free dinner in the month of your birthday too! Second to the food is the dining experience. We requested, through the OpenTable app, an experienced chef and we were not disappointed. The hibachi chef does not just 'cook' for you, he 'entertains' you/your party. We had a 6-yr-old with us and the chef included him in many of his cooking 'tricks'. Watching the joy on his face and hearing his shrieks of delight made dinner even better! Finally, it is a great value for your money. If we weren't getting a 'show/performance' and/or if the food wasn't that good, you might say it was a bit expensive. But I think it's worth every penny considering it's prepared right in front of you with the freshest ingredients, served the second it's done (hot off the grill!), you're highly entertained the entire time, and it tastes fantastic!! Can't get much better than that!!
Overall nice meal, had to wait 15 minutes getting there 5 minutes before our reservation time. Best part was the chef, great guy, entertaining, prepared food very well. Was disappointed in beer selection, I.e., first three beers selected they were out of. No Local micro brews provided. Our server was very good.
Quality food, lots of laughs, poorly trained chef
Maybe it's because we're spoiled, but this visit to Benihana was average at best. We moved here from Florida where we would frequent one of Benihana's flagship restaurants. The building itself had a lot more character and even though it's a chain restaurant, it still provided an authentic dining experience. Benihana in Broomfield, not so much... I will say the two highlights were our server (she was working the entire side of the restaurant by herself all night and was very attentive) and the quality of the food (ingredients always seem to be above average). Beyond that, the experience as average at best. Our chef was not well-trained and was kind of a goofball, although he did have a good sense of humor. We did come on a week night so maybe it was an off night for the chef or perhaps it's because the group we shared the table with ordered a dinner to go and made several other special requests... Not sure, but the chef was off his game so much he actually spilled the to go order on the floor and had to refire the meal. This basically ruined the rest of the meal as everything ended up being served one at a time. Don't get me wrong, I like all the ingredients, but when you have to eat a pile of onions before they get cold with no steak, it's kind of a bummer. Overall, the server and quality of food saved the meal, but we might try a different location in the future.
