Hear that? Love is in the air. So is the sizzle of the teppanyaki grill at Benihana.

For 55 years, Benihana has served as host to life’s most significant celebrations. From first dates to engagements and anniversaries, we’ve seen our loyal customers’ beating hearts grow right in front of our eyes.

To show our appreciation to our favorite loved-ones, we’ve introduced sharable and pairable limited-time menu options, available now through May 13, perfect for date-night.

Flowers They Actually Want: One Cocktail, Two Straws

Special occasions call for special hydration. Benihana translates to “Red Flower” in Japanese, and while you may be tempted to give your date roses, give them a Red Flower you can both enjoy. The ‘Red Flower’ punch bowl is made for sharing. Handcrafted and blended with fresh ingredients, this cocktail was created to be enjoyed without overpowering. Its lightness compliments most all of our dishes, making it pairable no matter what you and your date order. Make it a true celebration by adding a bottle of La Marca Prosecco!

The Perfect Pair: Compliment your Complements

Now, you don’t have to choose between surf and turf. Customize your special night with Entrée Complements including fresh, high-quality lobster tail, scallops and shrimp. It doesn’t stop at hibachi; if you’re on a roll, these options complement our fresh sushi selection as well. The best part? Our dishes are prepared directly in front of you, so you can see (and adjust) the flavors and ingredients as it’s made. Just ask your chef. If you’re looking to wine and dine, pair your glass of vino with these complements:

Red: H3 Cabernet Sauvignon – Deep berry flavors lead to a soft tannin cocoa finish. Try it with our USDA hibachi steak options.

White: Sauvignon Blanc – Fruit and a crisp acidity make it ideal for sushi. Try it with our Shrimp Lover’s Roll.

Rose All Day: Rose is the most versatile, opening up the senses. Try it with salmon or hibachi, it’s the ultimate compliment.

Happy Hour: It’s Heating up

Cozy up to your date with Benihana’s award-winning signature sake. Our #1-selling item for your #1. Served hot in Japanese ceramic and brewed specially in Berkley, CA, our signature sake will open your senses and warm your heart. Make the evening even sweeter with flavor infusion shots of black raspberry, apple, banana or ginger.
