Benihana - Denver Ratings and Reviews
We had a group of 8 people so it was nice to have a whole table to ourselves without some random people. Service was good and fast and our cook Justin was super funny and kept us entertained the entire time. My biggest disappointment was the hosts at the front and the way things were ran. I made a reservation 2 days prior to our night out. We get there about 5 minutes early and we are told we can’t check in till our full party is there, sure understandable but annoying. We are able to check in right on time and we are told there is a 10-15 minute wait, sure understandable again. After 1 hour of sitting in the waiting area for our buzzer to go off, and after watching countless other parties just walk right in and get seated within 5 minutes, I am more then annoyed. The whole dining experience was great and I will be back just for that, but the way things are ran on the front end need an overhaul.
Very good, healthy, tasty food. A little pricey, but worth it. Service is good, and entertaining/engaging. Had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seated and then another 30 minutes for the meal to start, but there was good attention to us during the wait (drinks, order-taking, etc.). Need to remember that even with good ventilation you will need to wash or dry clean your clothes after your visit due to the smoke and airborne grease and odors. Just part of the experience. Very good restaurant.
What fun! The chefs make all your food at your table and are truly funny and engagaing. It is definitely loud, warm and busy so if you're looking for conversation with a large group this is probably not the best place. Food and cocktails are delicious and they have a great looking happy hour menu that we'll definitely be going back for!
Justin(the chef) was more than great! Food was good and portions were outstanding.Two in our party had the salmon,one had the filet mignon and another had the king's trio. The atmosphere is very energetic. Never had to ask for a drink refill because our waitor was on it!
I've been going to Benihana since I was 6 years old for birthday and other special occasions. We have Jorge was the BEST chef I've ever had. He ditched some of the classic tricks and shows for new ones I'd never seen before. Every entertaining for someone who's seen these too many times in her life. Food was great, service was great. Once again my time at Benihana was great!
Always fun but our chef Jose was especially entertaining. We have been there several times but he was more fun than most! Our waiter was a bit loud but nice and funny as well. Our first time in with the spicy fried rice and like everything else it was very good although it's hard to beat the original chicken fried rice!
