Benihana - Denver Ratings and Reviews

Food, cook was excellent. We had a 5:30 reservation and didn't get seated until 6:00 or so. I found myself asking waitress repeatedly for items such as lemon, left over container and asked for a group picture compliments of Benihana. She was very polite about helping out. My family and I really enjoyed the evening at Benihana's. Thank you.

Really fun experience for kids (and adults!) Food was plentiful and tasty, and a good time was had by all. My two complaints: it was surprising how long it took our chef to come to our table. We had four small children with us whose bedtimes were quickly approaching, and even though we arrived at 5 PM, the chef did not begin until nearly 6 PM (and we saw many other tables around us get started before us even though they had arrived after us). I also asked for my meal to be prepared with mild spice, and it was so spicy I could barely eat it. Overall though, Benihana remains a good place to go with children who will be entertained while waiting for their meal to be prepared.

Took my wife here. We had never been before. We have went to other places like this. The food had no flavor. We were on vacation and celebrating. The chef even speak to us or say anything than hello. I expecting jokes along with culinary show. Our local Ohana Steakhouse puts this place to shame in every aspect.

We had a great time but our service didn't do any of the show you expect to see at Benihana, we had to request a "volcano and train" So the kids could see it, I think the show is a must when you go to a Benihana, people go for the entertainment

I was really disappointed. The last few times we have been here for a birthday celebration was terrible. We have been coming here for over 8 yrs. Its not like it used to be. The cooks don't add any excitement and the waitress has forgotten our picture twice. I guess you only get to use the birthday coupon on Mon-Thurs because you get the fill in staff. It would be nice to use that coupon on weekends and actually enjoy the experience. Defiantly not worth the money and more than likely will not be back since service isn't getting better.

Our waitress, Sandy was awesome. Our chef was not very good nor was the taste of the food. I have visited Benihana several times, and the food has always been great. I am not sure what went wrong this time, but the food was definitely lacking in taste.

The Express Lunch was great. It was quick and well priced for what we got. It was a little awkward sitting at a cooking table instead of a regular table when our food was prepared elsewhere, but it was still fine. I would go back again for sure.

I brought my friend here for his birthday. The food was fantastic, but the service was very poor. I worked in the restaurant industry for many years, and I felt completely rushed throughout the meal. I felt like I had to hurry and finish so the next group could come to the table. The server had great skills and very personable but everything was way too fast! Also, everyone seemed over worked, and not happy. This I know for a fact starts with how management runs the team.

The restaurant was actually kind of dirty. My friend and I walked into the sushi bar area, and we noticed there were a smashed tomatoes on the floor. the kitchen also had so many people just chatting away and our waitress did not take the time to check up on us. They took forever to give us our menu, and the guys behind the sushi was not welcoming at all. they didn't asked us if we were being helped or needed a drink. For an open sushi din in, people can see what's going on back there, we were surprised about how many chatter box they had, but not one took the time to greet us. I'm sorry, but I have been to 5 star Benihana's before and this location did not make the cut for me. If I had a choice to give it a zero star, I would! they need more workers to be aware of customers walking and also a commend courtesy to ask customers how they are doing would be nice.

Requested table in bar area. Wanted to visit with a friend after a long absence. Server was very attentive, yet not obtrusive. Food arrived a little cold, but she took care of it immediately. We weren't rushed and enjoyed the time there. Will go back soon, especially for the coconut mojito.

I was there for my birthday we were seated at 945 and we didn't get our drinks until 1025pm, our cook didn't engage with us at all, he literally just stood there and cooked, I come here every year for my birthday, next year I will be starting new traditions. I didn't even get a picture this year.

The only thing I don't like and this a little bit of problem to me,is that if you send me a chef that speaks Spanish I'll be speaking with him in Spanish no matter if the other people don't understand or speak Spanish. I am paying for my meal,I haven't got nothing for free and also I have the right to speak the language that I want in that moment. Is not the chef fault,but I has been happen twice that the other people make a complain that we were speaking Spanish. And obviously management make a comment to the chef. I am a frequent client. Thanks

We went for my husbands bday with a group of friends and it was great. Good food , staff were very friendly and the chef was great. The wait time however was ridiculous. Even with reservations at 715 we had to wait about 20 mins to be seated and then about 45mins for our food. But we fun.

I have been to this Benihana dozens of times over the past 15 years and was disappointed for the first time. The service was rushed and impersonal, the overall feel was chaotic, the chef gave fried rice that some of us paid for to a child at the table that didn't order it (reducing our serving sizes), on and on. It reminded me of Casa Bonita.
I will try it again to give it a chance to redeem itself, but that night it was unfortunately bad.

Definitely need reservations. It just makes it run more smoothly and less waiting. The service was great. And it makes for a great experience when you have an energetic and amusing chef with quick wit. It was a great time. Glad i have leftovers cuz the good was good too. The steak could use an upgrade in quality. Too much grizzle.

Reservation for a birthday at 7, arrived early, table not ready until after 7. No complimentary photo offered after. Would only recommend for birthday coupon. Miyabi Jr, Express with identical food at 1/4 price less than 2 minutes away.
