Benihana - San Diego
Greatful to spend our birthday there
Had the best experience. Waiter was the best I’ve ever had. Was my first time in San Diego. I will definitely be back.
We had a cool chef that entertained us and an amazing waitress that was so attentive, great experience overall
Wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary! Our chef was wonderful and provided some entertainment while cooking. The food was delicious!
Reservation were made for 2:45 5/31/2020. Checked in at 2:30 were not sitted until almost 3pm. Once sitted, almost 10 minutes before we were asked for drinks. Chef didn't get to our table to cook until 35 minutes later, so up until they started cooking, about 45 minutes had elapsed. We all ordered the dinner entree, I added a lobster tail to mine. When food arrived, the lobster tail was half the size of the ones I get on a regular basis, I told the chef and he even said he would tell managers because even he thought it was small. Vegetables were wilted (Onions/Squash) but at this point no point in complaining. Cook was nice but not very talkative (motivated). all in all it was a "blah" experience, not one that you would expect after a restaurant being reopened. mildly disappointing.
This place was very clean and accommodating. Very friendly staff and an amazing chef
Very respectful and clean.
Loved it, amazing food! Great job guys!
We had a great time the service was wonderful and the food was great
Excellent service food was excellent really good the chef was amazing excellent customer service
Came here to celebrate a very special occasion, the golden birthday of my beloved husband. Upon being seated we were asked by our server Nicole if we were celebrating anything special. We gladly shared that we were indeed celebrating a birthday! We began with the soup, then the salad and then when the chef came we were asked again if we were celebrating. With great enthusiasm we rejoice "Yes! A birthday!!" He was very nice and while his cooking skills were "on point" I must say the food was lack luster. After dinner we were asked if we wanted dessert then given the check. Holding out hope for some Benihana redemption, nothing special was acknowledged. Our server came and went and really didn't seem to enjoy her job. We later asked another server who was tendering to the table next to us if he would take our picture to remember such an important day.Needless to say Benihana left us sad, poor and with a little less birthday spirit. 10/10 would NOT recommend
Excellent! Loved the food & the service. It was just my husband and I and the experience was pretty cool being that we had the whole table to ourselves! Pretty awesome!!
Birthday dinner. Had a great time
Excellent service, great food overall a great experience!!
Took my son for his 18th birthday. Our server, Nobu and chef, Santiago, were great. Excellent service.
We had a great lunch , it was nice to get out again
Glad to see restaurants reopening! Benihana has always been a favorite in our house!
It was nice to sit down again for dinner. We had our own station to watch the food prep and eat our meal. I was so happy to spend my first evening out with Benihana's. All CDC guidelines were in place. 5 stars from me
The chef sanitized his tools in front of us and we had our own table, hands down awesome
Dinner was great like always I like the new social distance guidelines my son and I enjoyed the new dine-in rules we enjoyed an entire table to ourselves we had extra room and the extra sanitizing precautions were nice.
It was awesome to be able to dine in after everything being closed. The service was awesome!
Considering the Covid 19 restrictions the whole Benihana team made a great effort to make our first dinning our experience a very pleasant one.
Food was excellent!
Service was excellent and our cook David was great. Our food was cooked to perfection.
Benihani is one of our favorities and did not disappoint this time either. they handled the social distancing well, food was awesome, good service. Super fun.
Great service and didn’t wait long food was delicious
Always great at Benis
The food was brought out to us warm. Other than that everything was fine.
It was a great experience. We celebrated the opening on restaurants here by going here and it was the best!
First day back open for sit down dining was excellent and they went above and beyond what they needed to do!
For us being only 1 of 2 tables other then the lounge area we waited 50 mins at our table with just soup and drinks before we got our chef. Seemed like much longer then any normal experience prior. There was atleast 3 chefs though cause the table before us and after all had a different chef. Best part was the chefs jokes and skills. He definitely knew how to put on a show and interact with just 2 ppl
Chicken and Shrimp Family meal very tasty also ordered some specialty sushi rolls! Excellent curbside service!
Another great birthday dinner at Benihana! Thank you for always providing a great meal and a lot of fun!
I Loveeeeeed our Chef “Marcello”
Highly Recommend him ❤️
Excellent place to eat for birthdays and anniversaries
Our chef Tyler was great!!! very energetic & personable..he put on a great show!!!
Connor was great! Very engaging and fun!
Entertaining. Flavorful food, not there. Not what I expected the way it smelled from outdoors.
Server was very inattentive.
Awesome! Great birthday dinner!
