Last Sunday we had a nice lunch with lovely niece in connection with her 14th birthday. Food was very well presented and she enjoyed it very much. Especially the desert as a gift from Benihana for which our thanks.

Mitch made the dinner taste even better with his narrations and antics. The food was delicious, made to order, and plenty of it. It was one of the tastiest meals I had in 5 days of Aruba. Well done!

I had sushi and the other three in our party had filet and scallops. The sushi was good and so we're the scallops, the steak lack flavored. The service was so so. After all for all the great restaurants in Aruba, I'm sorry to have picked this one.

Both of us had never been to Benihana when there was one near Boston. So when we saw the restaurant, we decided to give it a try. Decided we were going to experience everything....from eating with chopstix to trying different things. We were at a table with a couple from the Netherlands. The chef was funny and expert.....the fried rice... More

We had made 8:30 reservations, arrived early after struggling to find parking and still had to wait until almost 9 to be seated. Once seated we orders drinks but waited at least 10 minutes to get them. We then ordered our meal and sushi roll. We waited another 10 minutes to get soup then salads. Then we waited almost 40...

I went with my wife expecting an enjoyable dinner. Staff was really rude, but that wasn't the worst. I ordered sushi and my wife a salad and an appetizer (shrimps sauteé). The sushi came but her food didn't. After 10 minutes the lights went off on a complete blackout. No one came to our table to explain about the blackout... More

When we arrived we were the only 4 people in the restaurant. Instead of making us wait until more people came they sat us down and cooked for only the four of us( a few minutes later a group of two showed and even cooked for them separately). The chef Mitch was amazing. I told him my father in law... More
