Benihana - Denver Ratings and Reviews
We had a reservation at 6:30 and were not sat until 7:20. Having 2 kids with us, it was disappointing. The host staff was not friendly nor accommodating and just kept telling us there was nothing they could do. The only reason why we stayed was because our kids were very excited to eat there. Don't know if we would do it again.

Originally they used to hire Japanese Cooks and have them brought in to work at Benihna they were excellent. Now it's like a circus that hire anybody off the street to cook. They throw food around pieces of chicken at the kids just try to catch in your mouth and childlike kid stuff. I wish it was more well-trained Cooks the showing off their knife skills like it used to be. Instead of the stupid choo choo train onion volcanoes and throwing food at the kids. You pay enough for the food you think they would keep it more like a high quality restaurant.
Great but required effort
We were first seated in a booth and we were squashed. Seating was uncomfortable as there was no back. I was assertive to get out and ask for different seating. Once we were reseated every thing was perfect. Service, food, and our chef was great. Birthday coupon made it very affordable.

Good food although more vegetarian and vegan options would have been welcomed. Very fun ambiance.
Bring Back Yummy Sauce
This location used a mustard sauce instead of the traditional yummy sauce.
I really enjoyed my birthday lunch at Benihana. The food was really good and enjoyed my wine too. Loved the habachi chef's "show" he was GREAT!!!!!
This was my first visit. I was amazed at how talented the chef is. He cooked the meal to perfection and was entertaining as well. I wasn't too keen on sharing a table with people I don't know but I would do the experience all over again.
Chebello is one of the best chefs there and the servers are amazing
The. Most memorable part of the experien ...
The. Most memorable part of the experience was the rudeness of the wait hostesses. And the manager was exceptionally rude. We had a reservation which they did not honor, we had to wait more than an hour. It is like that old Seinfeld episode, you know how to take the reservation, but you don't know how to honor the reservation. Probably not going back. It is bad news when a restaurant doesn't respect you or your time.
I made reservation for 7:30pm with the assumption we would have a table within a reasonable amount of time. We waiting an hour for a table which was a bit much for having a reservation. And we arrived by 7:15pm so we weren't late and my entire party was present. Once we were seated we were left alone for about 15-20 min before the waiter came and took our drink order and then he disappeared again. Our chef didn't arrive for some time also and then was kind of quiet and really didn't say much to anyone. I did appreciate they celebrated our birthdays. There were 3 of us total that celebrated but I didn't appreciate the 15-20 minute wait after our plates were cleared and the others that were seated with us received their ticket and paid then left. They wouldn't bring us our check after we asked because we simply spent our entire evening waiting and by that time we were just done with the entire experience. What is the point making reservation ahead of time if you are still waiting for a table just as you would if you just walked in
Great food... Poor service
Made a reservation for 12 people at 7 pm and we were not seated until 9. They ended up putting us in the very back and the heat was on, we were all sweltering. We had to seek out a manager to complain about the situation, they were very generous and apologetic however our time was ruined by the late delivery of our food, extreme heat and lack of communication. One positive note was the chef was very talented and the food was good.
Worst experience yet. I've been there many times and it's getting worse. Even with my reservation we had to wait 45 minutes to get a table and the 40 minutes to get food. I won't go back.
Beni's is it!
If you're looking for a great place to get some great food, great drinks, and great atmosphere then Benihana's is it.

Wonderful food, fresh and delicious. Cooked right in front of you, has then best flavor I have had in a while.
Sushi and Mojito a perfect combo!
The sushi was amazing, some of the best I have ever had! I also really enjoyed the Mojito!
We never get the same cook so it's always entertaining. My kids love it because the chefs include them in the show.
We were seated on time, a plus. The noise in this place on a Wednesday night, loud, loud, loud. Kids screaming, crying and running around. Overall the atmosphere was OK, seems like this place could use a major face-lift. The food was mediocre at best, and for what you get, I'd say on the high side. Our chef seemed like he just wanted to get it over with. Didn't put on the "show" we were expecting. Chose this place to celebrate our 30th anniversary, as we'd never been before. We were disappointed and wont go back again. So many other great places to eat in Denver, this one is very low on the list.

I have no complain with the service how ever i did not have a good experience this past weekend do to seating arrangements done. I felt very discriminated on and i was unhappy with the whole outcome of my dine in experience. I will ask for be not seated with other people if i do decide to go back.
Can't wait to eat there again!!! So tasty! Love everything! Fun for groups!
Our cooks were great, as usual. The waitress was really attentive, refilling everyone's drink before we had a chance to run out.

The Hibachi chef we had was terrible. He kept dropping knives and couldn't complete one trick without messing up. He dropped my bowl of fried rice everywhere when handing it to me as well. Not sure if he is just clumsy or was intoxicated but I have never seen anything like it. It was disappointing when I would look arounf and see other tables having a good time with better chefs. Also we had to ask for ice cream at the end of our meal when it is suppose to come with it. We had a reservation but despitr that...still had to wait 30-40min to be seated.
Best birthday EVER!
I chose Benihana for a surprise 50th birthday party. The staff was excellent and more than accommodating and made our night perfect! There were 13 in our party. Everyone had a fantastic time.
The table sitting is too crowded, not enough space to enjoy the food, in addition, the chicken fried rice is not enough, they never serve a full bowl for the extra money you have to pay... in addition, the meat you order is a small portion

The staff at Benihana was incredible. We went in on Valentine's day, last minute, and we're seated and ordered in less than 30 minutes from our open table reservation. We were blown away!
Loved the show. The steak was awesome. The birthday ice cream was perfect. Loved the shared table experience, never done that before. I will be back. And, with it right across the street from our home, parking wasn't an issue.
I love Benihana
I love Benihana! Foods great, cooks awesome, and a great environment.

We usually go to the Benihana restaurant in Broomfield. We decided to try the Benihana in Tamarc Square. Although the food was good, our chef was engaging and accomplished, the service was very slow. The restaurant was not very inviting and was not very clean. We will not be returning to this restaurant.
Great atmosphere, great chef, service otherwise not so good. The bib eye for two was not worth the money, it was very fatty..... The rest of the meal was very good.

This is one of my wife's favorite places I took her there for her birthday the chef was good the food was great and even my five and nine-year-old daughters loved it I had the fillet and scallops and it was awesome.
Our Valentine's Day was great
The atmosphere was awesome!! I loved the way the food was cooked and the entertainment was funny and enjoyable. I hadn't been in a fewyears, but really enjoyed ourselves. I do recommend making a reservation on special occasions though. Thank goodness we made one. Thanks and will be delighted to go again hopefully soon.
We went on feb 13th for 3 people's birthdays , we had 5 kids and the staff did an awesome job of entertaining the kids and filling our drinks. The chief was funny and pleasant and cooked everything perfectly.

After waiting 20 minutes past our reservation time with no acknowledgement and seeing other people being seated who either didn't have reservations or had reservations later than ours, we left and went somewhere else.
I really appreciate the fact that every year when I come to have my birthday dinner they are willing to work with me so I can get a full order of calamari which isn't on the menu anymore.
Great place for celebrations
I have eaten at Benihana many times. The food is consistently excellent. My grandchildren love going there both for the food but also the "show" put on by the chefs as they are cooking. I love that it is kid friendly. We have always been seated with friendly people.😃
