The food was lacking in garlic and other flavors. The vegetables were all cooked and served separately, and arrived at different times; a pile of onions arriving last on the plate... More

Our last dinner at Key West, we chose Benihana, glad we did. It was convenient to our condo, easy to get reservations. We watched the sunset on the waterfront before our 6pm reservation, then enjoyed dinner skillfully prepared in front of us. Our community table (four of us, two other couples, all strangers before dinner) had various food allergies and... More

Thank you for the nice compliment on server Ray. Did you know he is also one of our Sushi Chefs? Hence he is quite familiar with the sushi menu in addition to the fact that you can also order your favorite hibachi (hot) grilled items on the sushi side at a table for two if you like. Happy New Year... More

We had dinner at Benihana. Our chef was new so there were few staples. No juggling of the cutlery. No tossing food into people's mouths or into his hat. Also our ancillary service was very slow. The experience just wasn't there.

Every one of our chefs had to learn their craft over many years of practice. You must have been cooked for by one of our newer chefs. He is getting better with each passing day and I hope you will give us another try in the near future. Happy New Year! Sincerely, Mark H - Owner More
