We tried to make a reservation at the last minute and were told we would have to wait an hour and a half for a hibachi table. We were given the option of eating at the bar, which didn't have a wait. The food was really good. I tried the Las Vegas Roll and the steak hibachi dinner. First time... More

Japanese cuisine is my favorite. I've been to many Japanese restaurants and Benihanas while traveling. This was my least favorite of them all. Service was not good. Food was below average and not prepared quite as well as other Benihanas I've been to. Overall I was disappointed.

We had a lot of fun and the food was delicious. They give you very generous portions for the price. I suggest reserving in advance as it can get busy. Very nice view and the chefs really put on a show. Would definitely for back next time we are in Miami

As every time in a Benihana: Great Food, great show, great service and a lot of fun. We always enjoy it very much and the Benihana at Miami Beach is a very special Benihana. We went there several times.
