Benihana - Burlingame
Great place, good food and service but fewer options for vegetarians
Had a great experience which is especially hard during COVID 2020. The cook was great- made my daughter feel special on her 13th birthday- premium service
Chef Benito was very good. Food was great service was good. Just a little bit too noisy on that particular day. There was a party that totally obnoxious but no fault of the restaurant..
Benihana is one of my favorite restaurants for birthdays, anniversaries or just simply for lunch or dinner. As always, the food is great, chefs are very friendly and service is outstanding. I'm glad they opened up for dining inside the restaurant.
I took my friend to Benihana for her birthday and everything was great. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!
845pm reservation, we waited until 930 for a waiter, they had no chefs so they had to call a chef over from the to go area. He was good, but really late, and understaffed. Not a good way to celebrate my wife's birthday...and we have always been big Benihanas fans. We go here for every birthday. We spent a lot of money and were very disappointed. Come on Benihanas!!
Its a good place to celebrate special occasion, good food and good service
Celebrating 25th wedding anniversary. Table was just us two, waiter (Kim) was very attentive, Ruben, our chef was personable and entertaining, Covid protocols were implemented exceptionally well, and environment was wonderfully pleasant. Cleanliness could be improved, floors were messy under chairs. Value for price was okay. Took picture and it was a cool memory, and view was magnificent.
Great place for family celebrations...............
Very accommodating. The serve we had went above and beyond. An older Asian woman. Please let her know I was beyond pleased with her service
Dining at Benihana during Covid was a blessing, a treat, and a wonderful gift which we greatly appreciated. Had the table to ourselves and our Chef was fantastic. SO amazing to be inside a very empty restaurant due to separation but the food and Chef were phenomenal!!
It was great getting to eat at our favorite place and seeing the same faces. They were socially distance and tables were kept to a few people. Food was awesome. Great to get something normal back in our life.
I'd think everyone knows what Benihana offers by now. The chef normally does the same tricks so it does get old after awhile but so what. It's one of those I know what I'm getting so no complaint there. I like this particular location as it has good views and I'm glad it's open for dinning. What more to ask for. It's certainly not cheap but also one of those I know what it costs and at least it's not crazy expensive compared to some other "nicer" restaurants. Overall I enjoyed my experience there every time.
COVID SETTING: I made dinner reservations for my granddaughters birthday (9/6) - [Benihana is best for the experience and ambiance of having the food cooked in front of you with a hopefully entertaining chef.] Its truly not the same experience dining outside, the food is brought to you already cooked, I ordered a Prosecco which was flat and so I ordered a Rose which was nice (obvi didn't charge for the Prosecco) food came out tepid and the sushi roll was last to come out. They did their best but, I wish I had called first to understand setting and how the food was to be served. There was no outside lighting other than the parking lot lampposts which by the end of the evening didn't give off any light - we had to use our phones to see what we were eating. Again our server was great and did his very best to ensure a nice dinner, but if you desire the experience and freshly cooked food - you'll need to wait a while.
My family and I chose to eat there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. I am aware they have to follow covid protocol, but the food prices were listed as the same as if it was cooked indoors . Benihana’s is known for their ambiance (enjoy watching your food cooked in front of you). Not only was I missing that, but I believe the food portions were much smaller than if it was cooked in front of you. I’ve always enjoyed my experience at Benihana’s, but they have reduced their menu prices as they are not providing all the services they had before covid.
First day of outdoor dining, a little slow. However cut them slack as they are trying to adjust!
The service was absolutely amazing. Waited maybe about 5 minutes for our table to be ready. Food and drinks came out at a good time. Our server was super attentive and our chief was so funny. Kept us laughing and we had an amazing time. Food tasted amazing. Highly recommend for everyday dining.
We went post-COVID and it was a little quieter than normal which I actually preferred. The were set up for social distancing. The food was good and the chief was very entertaining. We were happy to get out for a meal finally.
We ate lunch at Benihana's with a reservation. The place was very clean. Everything was wrapped and sanitized. Lots of space between patrons. Service was amazing. Food was excellent as usual. Chef had all clean utinsils. Lovely time.
Nice staff/nice chef/ nice waiter. Place is very safe to dine in. Distancing and sanitazion is good
Thank you for the wonderful time. We had fun!
Great service Kids and I had a great time. Celebrating my son's 23rd birthday. The food and entertainment was awesome.
We went as a party of 3. We had a great time! Elio was our server, he was attentive, friendly and charming. Reuben was our chef, he was friendly, funny, amazing cook and mad sure we all were enjoying ourselves. My sister who came with us has celiac (gluten allergy) both Elio and Reuben were helpful and considerate of her allergy and helped her get gluten free soy sauce and cooked her food first to avoid contamination. Thank you both for taking care of us and helping with the allergy meal. See you next time!
Had a great time food is always excellent
Chef Brian was excellent , great show , perfectly cooked steaks and original moves I’ve never seen before!!!
Communication between the team checking us in at counter and the team out in the parking lot having us park and check in was a disaster. Matter of fact, the communication between the two teams didn’t even exist.
Benihana is our go-to for birthday celebrations. In this era of COVID they did a great job making us feel safe while keeping the same Benihana feel.
The food was very good we had a very good time I was celebrating my birthday and I had a good time
Always enjoy having steak cooked right in front of you teppanyaki style.
It was lovely :)
My family and I had a great time!! Our waitress Melinda and chef Carlos were both AWESOME combo for our service!! We look forward in coming back soon (July 16) for another round of fantastic grub!!
Went to celebrate my daughters graduation..Benihana is our “go to” spot for our family celebrations.
I always enjoy our dinners at Benihana's! The food is excellent as well as the party atmosphere. We try to go at least once a month - have never had a bad meal.
Our server was absolutely amazing. Staff was super friendly. Checked temperature and gave hand sanitizer. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend going and giving them a try. The best Benihana’s in the Bay Area.
Service, food and all around experience was fantastic
My bestie and I had a good time. I appreciate them taking the upmost precautions during this pandemic.
I loved that they spaced guests out at our table, everything felt very clean
It was nice to sit down and have a dinner in a restaurant.
This was the best experience ever!!!! Wow it took Covid-19 to get great service and CLEAN FACILITY!!!!
Celebrating early Father’s Day lunch! Very different experience for dinning our first time eating out since Shelter in place; but understandable during this whole Covid-19. Very thankful for the mandatory safety precautionary step the staff took. Definitely an experience!
Son’s high school graduation
