Benihana - Miami Beach Ratings and Reviews
It was my first time and maybe last . We were celebrating 2 birthdays I put notes in my OT reservation but nobody even acknowledge the fact. Service is ok ,the whole place feels dated and old. It really needs a face lift. Food was best part but not as expected.
The food is great here. Service is always the same. Lacking attention to customers. I understand the process here. Although they lack customer service. As a server i always tip 20% and i still did today because who knows how they pay out at this restaurant. The cook was fine, sometimes better than others. Most of the time I haven't had a "great" show. Usually it's been 2 jokes and shows here and there and that's all. Nothin fun! I don't mind that. What i mind is the service. It takes forever for the drink order. They never know what they have available at the bar. And after the drink order it takes forever for them to come back and clear plates and ask if we want a refill or another drink. That is so important. To ask if everything is okay or any other needs. You don't come back 20 mins later to ask if you want some more water or another drink.no! Ugh. So disappointing. It's always the same here with service. They are always busy and hurried. Get more employees pleaae.
We have been fans of this location for years, but lately, it seems that they are lacking a bit, when it comes to customer service and cleanliness of the interior. Also, this last time that we visited, they were remodeling the outside, so the terrace was out of limits. Inside, the noise produced by portable AC units, was not pleasant, and the inside, felt a little too hot for comfort.
This was horrible definitely not Authenticate habachi they have the name and location but food is terrible not a real habachi place at all I was amazed they didn't even have real sushi just imation fish in it yuck yuck habachi guy didn't even do tricks just scared us with knives and loud banging not one Asian in the place beside hostess I came for the experience and left with a huge bill for nothing
Never recommend. Terrible. Long time to just order drinks. Then had to wait for table to be full before taking orders. I am vegetarian but eat fish. Others ordered chicken rice for extra charge. I did not. Cook mixed my rice with chicken and I had to wAit for kitchen to make me new which took 20 min at least! I ordered shrimp for main dinner. Others at table asked for their shrimp "appetizer" extra garlic and butter. Cook made my main shrimp dinner same way which was not happy. Put tons of butter in it I did not want. Couldn't handle individual orders and all for a couple of guys that were requesting a lot ! Not a good place if entire table doesn't eat same way. And the veggies came after everyone was done with meal as he burnt the first time and had to remake. Comedy of errors
this was our worst restaurant experience, the AC was working at half capacity, the Chefs were sweating and their sweat was dripping on the cooking table,
the ambiance was Zero and really not enjoyable, very Loud stand alone AC units were placed at random through out the restaurant that made us feel like sitting in a construction zone.
This restaurant should be closed down and or removed from Open Table
This Benihana used to be my favorite especially for the view of the ocean. I won't go there again . The air conditioning was broken and it was super hot and dirty. The poor chef was so hot and sweaty that his sweat was dripping in the food. Completely disappointed and turned off. It was my birthday and the waitress did not bring me my birthday ice cream or even offer it nor did I get my picture. This was a total let down. Complained to management and he did not care.
Me and three others tried out Benihana in Miami for our vacation. The food and our chef was great, however the waitress was a bit of that evening, she never asked us for drinks and when we finally managed to order a bottle of wine it did not arrive untill we were finnished eating. A shame but atleast we did not have to pay for the opened wine that we returned.
Horrible place, i am never coming back again.
Firstly, we made a reservation for 8pm, we got there 15 minutes earlier, and there was no table ready, we had to wait until 8:30pm to seat, secondly the person at the reception was very rude, like she didnt want to be there. The entire place was dirty, the floor was sticky, and not only in a particular place, but the entire restaurant, the tables were also very dirty, you couldt seat.
To make matters worse, the air condicioning was broken, we couldnt stand staying there for any longer, it was very hot inside, me and my entire family were sweating. We had to leave, and i am never coming back again, worst experience ever.
Great dining experience and food! Our drinks were horrible and had to be exchanged for sodas; and the air conditioner was broken. The restaurant had portable units around the restaurant to cool the area and the waitress was great at solving our drink issue. We love Benihana and would never stop dining there!
I am very sad that the A.C. still has not been fixed. I was hoping that a few months was enough time to have this taken care of. The food was great as always and service was wonderful. However I should not leave a restaurant with a $200+ bill and be sweating.
I actually came after my set reservation I had a great time as usual but the cook was not so good.. He did not speak, did none of the tricks, wasn't very interactive with us especially since I had a child with me. Even the group that was also in the table complained to me about his service/behavior. He looked very upset like he didn't want to be here cooking/ at work. I was very disappointed with this cook. Even when we asked for something he would give attitude. His attitude made the whole experience and food so bland. I didn't even eat my food, I took it home with me. Very disappointing
Place was terrible, no air conditioning, WITH FANS IN THE CORNER, NOT ENOUGH!!!, ceiling with humedity, bad service, super expensive, we will never visit this place again, food was good.
IF the owner of this concept will visit it, i am sure he will close it...
WE WERE 6, AND SPENT 350, A TIP WAS IN THE BILL FOR 50 DOLLAR, AMAZING!!
I made a reervation in ord err to avoid an unecessary wait and make it to my daughter's soccer practice. However, I eneed up waiting half an hour before the waitress took my order anyway. I was at Benihana a total of an hour and a half. Needless to say, we missed soccer practice. It was very frustrating and uncomfortable sick there is no a/c and there are portable a/c units scattered throughout the facility.
We love the food here but their air conditioning hasn't been working for over a month and they have some portable units that just don't help. Everyone was hot and sweaty there. Employees don't look happy because of the conditions they are working in. You can see the quality of this location has gone way down. They don't do anything to fix the problem.
Ghetto trash. No fire show the cook we had show was flaunting his behind to the table and the order the food was cooked was terrible. The veggies are served last after your rice is gone. The noodles were God awful and ruined with this nasty expired tasting sauce that also ruined an entire steak when he dumped it on that too. Over priced for ghetto Chinese tasting meal that you can find anywhere else. The heat is also unbearable and the waitress was clueless on all asked questions
The AC was not working and they needed extra units to keep the place not so cool. The staff seemed to be more interested in each other then the guests. Our cheff was the best part but the rest of the staff, not so much. We even talked with the manager, he said he would look into the slow service and never came to the table to check in. The food was really good. The waitress did not let us know that when we ordered and she suggested something that there was an up charge. Over all, a very disapointing evening. I would not reccommend nor would I return.
