Benihana - Miami Beach Ratings and Reviews
We had not been to this restaurant in a long time, but find that it's always consistent and we have never left disappointed. I had also requested a window seat with a water view. When we were taken to our table, it was the furthest away from the window. Although I explained my request, the person seating us was not budging. However, the manager on duty that day heard us talking, came over, and quickly instructed for us to be taken to a window table and rearranged the other party which was going to be seated at our same table. She deserves a shout out for properly addressing the problem and resolving it...well done!
Service was great. She was the best in terms of actual service. But she made it really fun and had a great attitude. To me that's what serving is all about. Connecting with the diners.
I've seen better Benihana chefs, it seemed very forced and routine, but he was still skilled. Food was great. Overall a great time.
Only thing great about this visit was the cook, valet and food. The waitress and hostess were rude. I made a reservation and I was on time. As I was told to wait people that came in after me seated before me. They were told it was a 45 min wait but they were seated with in 5 minutes. Once seated the waitress denied my 10 year niece a kids menu. With the an attitude she replied "the kid's menu for ages 12 and under!" She also took forever to bring out the salad and refills. It was my sister's first time and the was a horrible experience. I will return to the Miramar location.
Service was great , server was amazing ,chef was outstanding but hostess was the worst the whole time I was smiling she had that mean face it was an asian server, even when leaving we say bye she didn't even reply . People like this cannot be working in hospitality. Overall great experience
No one should eat here but desperate tourists. As a customer from old days, let me tell you this place has slipped. I do not blame the poor training on the staff, I blame it on management. The only person that knew what he was doing was the chef. The restaurant also needs a complete facelift. The hostess had zero experience on how to speak to a customer...
Food was great, however the cook did not do all the traditional parts of cooking, flip shrimp tails, etc. served my appetizer shrimp after the rest of the food was cooked, not an appetizer at that point.
Nice cool, just missing normal Benihana show boating. He did some singing and fun, do not totally out of it.
Food was ok, typical hibachi grill quality and menu. Restaurant interior is very tired. Looks like they haven 't done any maintenance in 10 years. Carpet is old and tired, paint is worn off everything. Looks like they are just running it as long as they can before having to shut it down.
Also, service was very slow - went to the bar to buy a beer directly as it was taking so long.
I miss the old Benihana with the authentic staff and the mounds of food ! We decided on this location because of the view , but we were seated in the corner facing the parking lot. We waited at the table for an hour before the cook came out. The whole thing was chaotic and loud , pots banging and metal spatula slamming on the cook top. Really not pleasant. In the end not even the usual ice cream w a candle for my husband. We wont return. The place needs a good deep clean as well.
The waitress was not attentive I had to wait for over 40 minutes to get a refill of soda the cook was not interactive we had A table of eight and all the orders were served in correctly two of the adults at the table didn't even get the fried rice they ordered when we informed the waitress she didn't even try to correct the error The lobster was dry we were not even given any sauce to dip The shrimp was also hard and over cooked this was not worth the price I will honestly never come to this Benihana's ever again
The service was okay. They forgot about us during the check in and various parties that came in after were sitting down first. Noise level was too loud and we where almost yelling. The food was good.l but they need a LOT more desserts other than plain Ice Cream or a Banana. We only had our server sing Happy Birthday, no other staff members came to sing Happy Birthday. It was a depressing Birthday Celebration. Next time I'll go some where else for a celebration.
Our chef was terrible. He was in a huge rush and didn't do any of the traditional Benihana tricks and show that you go there for. I wouldn't go back to the 79th street location again. We were celebrating a birthday (14 years old) and they asked if we were celebrating anything special. Then they didn't do anything at all. No singing, no candle, no photo. When we told the person at the front about our experience and asked for the manager she said they were not available and she would pass the message on. They didn't even offer a discount or free something on our next visit. Must miss place. It was much better years ago.
This was my second time less than a month my reservation was 830pm saturday3/25/17 not as fun as my first time and this time no picture was taken ?and our chef needed to be like More happy he did what he did but did not enteract to much.greecy.food was great anyway and Service 🤗
I'm not going to be coming to Benihana For a while the food was overcooked and I asked for medium well steak over cooked my fry rice the rice was hard again over cooked I've been coming to Benihana's 20 times in the past six months Really disappointed in the service the waitress service was bad I have to repeat things really disappointed I will not be coming anytime soon thank you
Great food! But took almost 30 minutes to get us seated. That was a bit frustrating because I made reservations and got there 10 minutes early. I was only a party of 3 so a little bit bad on that part. But service and chef that prepared our food (hibachi style) was great! So yummy. You leave very full
We was there for birthday March 11, Saturday at 2;30 pm... . First, I did the reservation before, but still was suppose to wait in the waiting area for 15 minutes with kids. Second, it took another 15 minutes for waiter to bring the menu, then another 10 minutes to take a drink order, then another 10 minutes to bring the drinks, then another 15 minutes for Chef to come over and start cook. BUT THIRD is the worst that they Brought a SUSHI ROLLS to other 2 boys after the rest of us ate already. THAT was SOMETHING!! I will never ever recommend this place to my friends at all! You guys are nuts!
Very difficult to have a nice dinner with my wife due to the extremely long wait to be served by the waitress/chef! Had to look for a manager and wait some more. The upstair dinning area is very unkept and outdated. Our experience with the Ft. Lauderdale one was so much better, will go there from now on.
I went with high expectations and was quickly disappointed! My birthday was ruined! The waitress seemed timid and not sure of what to do! They didn't have lids to the children's cups, they didn't have carry out brown bags! The chef threw the food on our plates! We had to stop another waitress to give us eating utensils! They tried to have 2 people from the staff sing happy birthday to me!! They should be glad they added the tip onto our table which had 11 people, because the tip would have been minimal!! Very disappointed in Benihana's!!!
Service was slow and parking ridiculous. No Valet either. Chef and waitress dull, even kids said it and chef continue to be uninterested. Even the heart was blah. Explanation of kids meal not clear until Bill nor did waitress seem to know ice cream was part of kids meal. This was my 3rd birthday celebrated there in a row and always the same. Benihana's experience is no longer.
Horrible service!!! First of all there was hardly room to walk by the tables. Every time a waiter walked behind me, they bumped my chair. Second of all the waiter was horrible, apparently he was aware that he was guaranteed an 18% tip so he didn't care to keep us hydrated. We waited 20 minutes for him to come back and refill our drinks. Even our chef had to call someone to get him because he was embarrassed. He also didn't attempt to be charming at all. He was very dry and seemed annoyed. Our chef was pretty dry too. If we wouldn't make him laugh he wouldn't smile. If I'm paying the ridiculous high prices of that meal, I expect to not have to make the jokes. I want to be entertained. And the last issue was our chef screwed up my order. He gave me regular chicken instead of spicy chicken. He gave another guest the spicy chicken, which he said it was too spicy but didn't want to make a thing of it. Also, instead of making my chicken again he asked another waiter to bring the spicy sauce in a to-go container for me to put it on the chicken myself. All in all, they did NOT deserve the 18% tip we HAD to give them. We were OBGLIGATED to give them that amount because we were a party of 8. Even though he gave us all separate checks. We spoke to someone who said she was the manager and told us that there was NOTHING she could do about the tip and if we wanted to we could call corporate. I will NEVER return to that Benihana's, let alone return to ANY other Benihana's. It was very unprofessional and their tip was undeserving. The servers need to WORK for their tip and not be lazy because they know it's coming either way. UNACCEPTABLE!
