Welcome to Benihana in Santa Monica, California, where you’ll find a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal hibachi grill 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 as your taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi and sashimi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in our famous, award-winning signature hot sake or a specialty cocktail.
Benihana Santa Monica is conveniently located just one block off Third Street Promenade, near parking, movies, and the iconic Santa Monica Pier often featured in television and films. 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, upscale shopping and sometimes a celebrity sighting or two. Benihana is the perfect way to end your perfect Santa Monica day.
