Our favorite is there Fried Rice. One of the Best i tasted. The Shrimp and Tuna are fresh. You will truly enjoy the show when the chef is cooking your food.

We went here during Spring Break and the place was beyond packed, but they seated us within 5 minutes of arriving on-time for our reservation. Food was excellent. Chef was fun. We were not disappointed with our Key West Benihana experience.

We are Key West locals and Benihana is one of our favorites. It was our 7 year old grandsons birthday, and he chose the restaurant...of course he chose Benihana because it is an experience, not just dinner. The food is always delicious, but it is the chef who makes your dining experience memorable. Our chef was Juan. He was awesome...put... More

It's a Benihana with a nice view. Fully up to scratch. If you've never been to one before they're well worth a visit. Great entertainment and even better food. Fresh, cooked in front of you and just the way you want it. I'm a fan and this branch didn't let me down.

We are a family of four (two teen boys) and enjoyed the visit there. Definitely would visit it again if we return to the Keys. The chef was good fun, the food was nice (chateaubriand was very tender and good value) and the restaurant had a view to the sea.

I recommend making reservations here. We were lucky that we arrived right when they opened. We got seated right away. The hibachi chef was entertaining as well as a good cook.

A perennial favorite with our family.There is both a hibachi side and a slightly smaller "sushi" side, both with views of the Atlantic. Parking is often a challenge, as the lot fills quickly.
