About Benihana - Santa Monica

Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. Located in downtown Santa Monica just one block off Third Street Promenade, Benihana is conveniently located near parking, movies, and the iconic Santa Monica Pier. Venture upstairs to the sushi bar and lounge where you can gaze down upon the showman theatrics of teppanyaki chefs while enjoying cocktails and appetizers as a prelude to your hibachi meal. Santa Monica is an international destination, famous for golden beaches and upscale shopping. Benihana is the perfect way to end your perfect Santa Monica day.
