Benihana - San Diego
Everything was good but we did feel the chef was quick not a lot of entertainment and the server didn’t take our picture
The service was excellent, everything went well, but it did seem a bit cramped for the cooks, but it was a fun experience.
Food was great and our Chief was very friendly and made sure our food was cooked to our wishes. The family sitting with us were very friendly and added to the overall experience.
Benihana is always a great place to have a great time with your friends. Make sure you try the Las Vegas roll and have a few margaritas. The show must go on.
Our chef Kyle, was outstanding. Ask for him! . ................................
Great...Fun...Family Friendly....Attentive...Good Birthday Experience...Wish I could of used my Free $30 credit on same day.... Oh well next Birthday....
Host and chef were amazing fabulous as well as entertaining
We had Hector! The most amazing, engaging... chef there could ever be! Though we had to wait one hour at our table because they were so back up... Hector and our amazing server made up for it!
Food was great, very entertaining. A little on the expensive side but a great place for big occasions or a nice date night.
Food is so good and the cooks are very entertaining
We love Benihana our boys are always entertained by the awesome chefs!
The quality of food and service is always great there at Benihana’s. We left happy and our appetites were satisfied. The birthday voucher draws my family back to your establishment year after year. Thank you!
Went to celebrate 2 birthdays. There were so many crying children there - it literally was a headache. Also, our server got our appetizer order wrong and it was delayed. Then the chef forgot to give my son mushrooms with his meal. All in all the food tasted great though and our chef was very entertaining!
I wouldn’t recommend Benihana to friends or family because it is over priced for what you get. The restaurant is old and the bathrooms were absolutely disgusting! For a meal that expensive you should at least have a decent restroom. The food was good but overpriced, you can go down the street a half mile to Fuji Japanese Steakhouse and get the same meal cheaper but just as good. I was so excited to go to Benihana for the first time but I left kinda disappointed. Most likely won’t be going back.
The bathrooms were filthy. I told hostess when we went in there just before dining but when we finished dinner and we to restroom, they were even worse. Won’t be going back, Benihana quality is GONE!
It was our annual birthday event!!
Crystal and Samantha were awesome! We have been there over 100 times and it was our best meal which is hard to say because it’s always good but it was great tonight. Great service and smiles and personality from both above and beyond we enjoyed ourselves.
Had a very good dinner, our chef was very entertaining, everyone at our table was celebrating a special occasion. Everyone was friendly.
Had a great dinner as usual... service was excellent and the chef was so much fun!
The chef finished cooking for us and the waitress immediate ask us if we wanted boxes. They were rushing us to eat to have other people seat. The food was good, but we were not enjoying it. We did not finish the salads nor soups and they were picking up our plates.
Birthday great time thanks
Amazing experience. Awesome food. Interesting tricks by chef.
It was perfect as usual and Raymundo was soooooo hilarious!!! Me and my family enjoyed it so much we will come back again and again!!!
service and food were great Love it
No Prices on the menu. I dont intend on visiting this store again over secret pricing
quite unique dining experience, sevice was entertaining,pleasant and comfortable atmosphere,food portions were adequate
Food was amazing and so was the service! As a first timer I would highly recommend this restaurant for great food, service, entertainment and a place to have a great time with family, friends, or on a date night!!!
Far room too cold
Everything was wonderful I my family enjoyed it a lot
Recommend the Emperor's Feast: filet mignon, chcken and shrimp appetizer. Chef was very good and prepared the food well.
The only problem with our meal was we all had the fried rice. Evidently they made too much and offered my son the extra one if he wanted it; however, I didn't pay enough attention to our bill and didn't realize until later they charged us for 7 instead of the six we ordered. I wasn't too happy about it, but it's not work complaining for $4.50. So, make sure you check your bill before paying.
I have visited this location multiple times and never had such a horrible experience. I actually had the server arguing with me and trying to prove a point. She was horrible and completely ruined my experience. It was so bad that the Manager came over to apologize. I hope she got fired. She was a nightmare.
Took my kids for special lunch today and it was awesome. Came in right at 11 and got seated right away. Angel was such an attentive server and Fausto was very entertaining. My girls loved it and I think we go to lunch more often as its less crowded and noisy.
Went for my Birthday with my wife and we loved the food and entertainment! We even got our picture taken with a print out; Thank you!
Our family went there to celebrate my 51st birthday. We’ve been enjoying your Chefs and food for over 20 years and it just gets better!
I’d love to share how amazing our Chef was but he wasn’t wearing a name tag and didn’t share what his name was. Overall, we will continue to enjoy all of your awesomeness for the best 20 years.
Always an entertaining time at Benihana's with the family -- I forget how healthy their food is, too!
Yes, we would recommend Benihana to anyone. We like to go there especially for my Husband's birthday. This time our chef was Ricky. His juggling skills and tricks with cutlery was impressive, not to be out done by his cooking. Everything was delicious. We had a great, fun time. The room as always is too loud. The drinks person could have been more present. We had to ask for the photo this year as usually a hostess suggests it. However, we still love the place for special occasions.
This was one of the best Benihana’s experiences. I have been to one of these in many cities but without doubt this was right at the top of the list
Great service and the chef was wonderful. Oh - and the good was great too!!
Our chef Kyle was great! Very interactive was us.
the Birthday cert is the best. Every year we go and take advantage of it. It fun and good food. I just wish the cooks will have new tricks by now. I have seen the heart, volcano in forever. I am sure there are other stuff they can do. other than that the entire experience is great
Came for a birthday. Great food and service as usual. Will be back for more.
