Benihana - Coral Gables Ratings and Reviews
La comida muy buena, el servicio excelente, pero pasamos muchísimo frío. No se puede comer con el aire acondicionado a tope y, a pesar de que lo dijimos un par de veces, lo paraban un rato y volvía a encenderse. Muy incómodo! Una pena, porque de verdad que la comida vale la pena!
Nelson was such a good cook. 10/10 recommend.

Amazing!!!! Service from my main mans Nelson and Victor!!!!!!! So good!!!! Love them <333333 -Alexia
I love you so muuuuuch !!! Nelson and victor are the best service a girl could ask for !!! Defo will come back to visit my main mans Nelson and victor. ( if you come here as for Nelson as a cook and victor as a waiter!) the quintessential example of a professional Benihana chef,Nelson, was a wonderful chef and he answered all or nagging questions. Also, Victor the waiter was really kind and charasmatic! Great service!!! Kings of Benihana!! Broke my scale -bella& fener
I love Benihanas, but this time the chef had no energy, no show at all. The food was good but needed a bit more seasoning. Plus the overall dinner took a little longer than usual. usually we are in for 1:30 to 1:45 but this time the entire dinner experience took 2:30 which is crazy. Thanks
When the Chef finished cooking and our four year old asked "what about the show?" we had to explain this was a new guy who didn't know tricks. It's not fun to just watch someone cook when you're expecting bells and whistles. We got the "substitute teacher." Is there a way to ensure a seasoned/entertaining chef at the table? We didn't even get the beating rice heart!
It was great. Even though we were late due to traffic accident holding traffic they sat us within 15 minutes of our arrival. The chef was a bit rushed and confused about some of the plates ordered at the table but at the end everything was ok. Sometimes the chef needs to attend to his client's requests, like "use garlic butter instead of regular butter", no chicken in the fried rice as one of the guests was vegan, etc. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. I guess during holidays things can happen.
Waiter and cook were very nice. Unfortunately the cook took too long cooking, overcooked the chicken and steak. The chicken was dry and had no flavor, he missed some of the seasonings. Steak was hard and too much teriyaki sauce.
Honestly I was not satisfied with the food at all. :-( I've been there in difference occasions and had a better experience.
You can get one of the cozy booths by the bar for a more secluded meal or sit around the hibachi in a group for an interactive dining experience. You can tailor it to meet your mood. We enjoyed the seafood dishes more than the others. It was freshly made and delicious. The wait staff attending us accommodated our requests without hesitation and made the evening enjoyable.
No hot tea ever offered. Food prep took too long and the first served food cooled quickly. Meats were chopped into micro pieces losing all their essence. Had to ask for spoons for the children to use. Birthday celebration was mediocre when only two staff attended to sing happy birthday, as contrasted to a nearby table having six or more loudly singing staff. This was obvious to our child sharing her birthday, who asked me why we did not have all those staff singers at our table! Also, the birthday ice cream desert was hardly sufficient for nine people!
The food was great our cook Carlos was very professional and attentive to all our needs. The waitress was a delight. My fruit punch bowl was very fruity and filling. I could not eat all my food so I took it for lunch the next day. It was my birthday lunch/dinner so after we ate they gave me vanilla ice cream. I give it a 5 star restaurant!
Excellent experience. I have been to make similar venues but this was the best. The food quality was awesome and the cook used very little butter. Usually they slab on tons of butter but not here. I had the filet and chicken and the quality was very good. Definitely worth a visit
The food is very good, the steak was tender and tasty. The chef was entertaining and efficient.
It's noisy and there is no privacy for small groups. There were kids running around which was unsafe and the parents were loud. If you have a group of five or six it's a fun place. Not for couples.
