    Service was slow. Two of us never got the white rice that came with our meal. On the website it had stated that they would validate your parking ticket if you would park in the garage directly behind the restaurant and it was a lie. No one validated the ticket and no one tried to remedy this. You can get the same concept with better service and value at the Dadeland place.

    Our waiter was probably the worst waiter we have ever had. Everything was late, forgot our drinks, mixed up the checks, did not bring salads, did not offer ice cream, I can go on. Cook was there 5 months and overcooked our steaks. Made a mess and you can tell had not been trained properly. Manager did nothing, just looked confused. $200+ meal with this kind of service, I’m done with Beni, and we are regulars.

    La comida muy buena, pero la atención a la hora que te reciben ese día una de las chicas de la entrada súper pésima mala humorada muy aparte de eso la espera fue horrible llegamos a las 7 y tuvimos que esperar hasta las 9 para sentarnos no contar con eso luego que nos sentamos esperar al chef por 1 hora más para que nos cocinara creo que no es lo adecuado fue súper desesperante era primera ves que iba la verdad no me gusto para nada todo lo que tardaron.. El chef súper amable la comida riquísima eso no hay que negarlo pero la a tensión al principio fue terrible sin dejar a un lado las 3 horas que nos hicieron esperar.. (Deberían de mejorar en ese aspecto).

    I've been going to benihana forever, over 35 years and many states, and NEVER have I encountered or gone through such bad service, even the chef was frustrated. They had a server with no training and no one was willing to assist because it wasn't there table. I walked out along another guess. If you decide to go do NOT sit in the second floor. It is cramped. Ugly and next to the bathroom. I will NEVER, EVER go there again. One bad experience is enough for me, this is not a cheap restaurant and I expect to get my money's worth. Best of Luck! and shame on you Coral Gables Benihana 😠

    They absolutely cannot keep up with the number of reservations. Make your reservation one hour ahead of time otherwise you will not be happy. Also bring a little net cause we had a bug in our drink. Our chef was boring as all hell. Couldn’t even succeed at the one trick he did, the smoking onion volcano. Wayyyyy too much money for average tasting food, starving for two hours and creature in the drink. I will NEVER go back there.

    We went with a reservation and waited for 30 min. The manager told me that they were waiting for a chef in a very dismissive way. Once we sat the service was also terrible. We had to get up twice and get things at the bar that we had already ordered because the waitress didn’t bring it and wasn’t around. By the time the chef arrived we had been there for an hour already. Mind you it was in the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday. Not on a rush hour. The place is also old and not well kept. The only reason I didn’t leave is because it was my son’s graduation and he really wanted to eat there.

    I made reservations for 4:30pm for my son's Bday, he selected Benihana Coral Gables because he loves the environment and experience. We had to wait over one 1hr to be seated and another 30mins for the Chef to arrive. The Chef seemed to be new and nervous which caused a bit of a mess while he was cooking and the food not having enough seasoning. (not his fault he will gain experience and learn). I noticed my rice had a hair in it and the chef nor the waitress new what to do. This is not the only time that we have attended this location and the wait time long. My childs words "it will be a long time before we come back to this location." Eat a shack before you go to this location.
