Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I enjoy hibachi and have gone to a number of restaurants, so you tend to know what to expect when you get there. At Beninhana the food was ok but everything was extra. Meals came with white rice so fried rice was extra and lo mein was not included. The service was great, even taking additional steps to keep our 2 year old daughter happy. At the end of the day, we found the value wasn't there. I would seek other options it you are in the mood for hibachi in the Orlando area."

  • "This was our 2nd visit to the Orlando/Hilton Benihana. Having been to many others, the presentation has been lacking on both visits. Food is always great."

  • "We were sat shortly after arriving, the waitress was very quick and efficient, she would stand off to the side keeping an eye on the table for anything we may need. Drinks were refilled without even asking which is great. My husbands pet peeve is having to get their attention to fill our drinks. The cook was wonderful did a fantastic job. He came out before we even got our salad. The food was cooked as per any requests and was delicious. When ever we are in Orlando we eat at Benihana's at least twice during our stay in the area (there were a couple times we ate there 3 times in a week). This is by far our favorite restaurant!!! We wish there was one close to home "Boston" would be great ;) loving this open-table app too. Thanks again!"

  • "The quality of the food was excellent. We were also seated promptly with no issues. Our Chef lacked any personality and was a very "plain jane" chef. He introduced himself and then cooked the entire meal quietly. No tricks, no flair...good food though."

  • "A last minute decision and soooo glad we did! Service was awesome the kids loved it and the food was perfect! Not too heavy after a long day but filled you up!

  • "We always love Benihana, and this time was no different. We had a great table, the service was amazing, and our chef Damian was fabulous! So much fun and a great way to spend the end of a long day at the parks with family, and to meet new people. Would definitely come back!"

  • "The usual Benihana - good food, good show, just how good depends on chef. The chefs do seem to be better at the show than at other locations. The managers are present and do everything they can to make sure the experience s excellent. Steak entrees tend to be overcooked."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Food needs more seasonings beside soy sauce and the dipping sauce needs a better flavor have ate a lot of Japanese restaurants and this is least favorite."

  • "They accomatated us for a party of eight even though I made my reservation for six. We all had an awesome time, the staff was wonderful and of course fun. Bo was our chef-really great guy!!! Our waitress also so wonderful, lots of patience with our drink orders. She knows her sake!!! I would definitely come back next time I'm in Orlando."

  • "Our table was made up of two parties: my wife, daugter and I and another family of four (we have never met this family). Wonderful food and incredibly polite and considerate staff. The only disappointment: our chef's presentation. His cooking was excellent and he was courtly in his manners, but he seemed distracted and kept looking toward a certain corner of the restaurant with a heavy look on his face. He didn't have the energy the other chefs seemed to have, nor did he interact with our table the way other chefs interacted with their diners. In his defense, though, while my family and I were looking forward to the chef's presentation, the other diners at our table seemed more intent in their smartphones."

  • "I have been coming to Disney Orlando for over 20 years. I find Benihana in the Hilton Lake Buena Vista a great find. The food has always been fantastic and you can't get fresher than prepared in front of you. A great change from overpriced, expensive, crowded restaurants at Disney. The Kids enjoy the entertainment of seeing the chefs cook and entertain with some cooking tricks. They can prepare to your liking. We always order the special Benihana Rice. This is a must for any visitor to this restaurant. I have never been disappointed. The restaurant is great for families and groups. You are seated at tables for eight around the cook top. If you are lucky you will be seated with fun guests but that is hit and miss."

  • "Never go on a Saturday night, unless you have kids or are deaf. Noise level was off the chart. Also our tables exhaust fan was not working & several times we got a face full of seasoned smelling smoke. You could feel it & smell it. Very nice & helpful of employee's."

  • "Dinner was amazing, we sat at the bar and had good service, although it was a bit busy given everyone was in and out the kitchen door right near there. the sushi was amazing! Price was very reasonable given the quality and amount of food. Be very hungry if you get a sushi/ sashimi platter! and great drink selection"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I've been to Benihana several times with my seven year old and this time was a disappointment. The chef didn't do to many tricks & the ones he did were at the end of the evening after everyone was eating & my child had already fallen asleep. It would have been better to perform the few chef tricks at the beginning when everyone is alert. Also, the chef didn't have much of a personality (wasn't engaging)."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "The food is always fresh and just cooked so it is always served hot! The chef's cooking exhibition as he prepares our dinner is always entertaining."

  • "At the parks all day- got back to the Hilton and was hungry. Very convenient to have dinner close by! We love Hibachi- the food was prepared just right- asked for no added salt and the chef listened to that. The veggies were good- I had the salmon with mango salsa. The chicken and steak were great as well !"

  • "They really treat birthdays well here. We went the day we arrived to Orlando before going to the theme parks for the week. Our group of 8 had a birthday girl with us and they treated us very well. The kids got hats and the management team took a picture of our group and put it in a take home paper frame. The food was as expected, excellent habachi. Prices are as expected - kind of steep but you know what you're getting into. The parking is not ideal because the restaurant is at the hotel but the restaurant validates your ticket. We go there early and the place was quiet. By the time we left it was packed."

  • "I've been to a Benihana many times, quite few times in Stuart, once in Fort Lauderdale, and at another location in Orlando. Benihana is the best hibachi restaurant I've been to. I've been to other places like Benihana, but none compare. I would definitely recommend Benihana to anyone. Many people may call it expensive, but it's really not. You're really paying for 2 small appetizers, entree, dessert and the options of coffee or tea. It's really a great price for all the food you get. Benihana is my favorite for a reason."

  • "In town for Disney. I would say that this isn't the best Benihana I have been to but it was good. Service was very good and the chef was a lil boring. No show. My kids really appreciate the show. Great food though and we all left full"

  • "We were staying at the Hilton WDW Resort and decided to try this one evening. It was great, it was like entertainment while you eat. We had the Sesame-Crusted Tuna and the Spicy Chicken. Both were amazing. Our plates were never empty. Like I said, Wonderful!."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Our experience was excellent, and the food was delicious; however, there was an additional charge for fried rice vs plain old white rice. We have never been to a Japanese restaurant where fried rice was not a standard part of the meal."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Benihana has been around for a long time,and we hadn't eaten there in years. Decided to try while on a trip with the kids as they had never gone. It was fun for them watching the chef cook the food at the table. The food was good, but not spectacular."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "So different, the chef makes a show in front of you! You see the food they are preparing for you. I selected the Filet Mignon and it tated wonderful. Very satisfied!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "You know you're in for a treat when you make a reservation on a Wednesday and still wait 30 minutes for a table when the place is dead. The waitress was nice but couldn't be understood in the least over raucous noise and drunken businessmen. The food was meh but cost way more than that. The filet was super fatty and their soups bland. We definitely will be skipping this place in the future"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I've been to numerous Benihana locations across the country, but this one is the best. The service staff goes out of their way to be friendly and attentive, and bends over backwards for the guests. 5 stars all around."

  • "We spent the day at Epcot & rounded the day off with dinner at Benihana. It was a great ending to a great day! The food was delicious, and we had the most amazing chef named Nam. He was great interacting with our family & and was very entertaining. We have been at Benihans here and in Ohio many times, and Nam has been our best chef thus far. My only complaint is that it seems prices have went up, and you don't get as much food (rice). We have always had to get a box for our leftovers (each of us), and this time, only my husband had to get s box - because he ordered extra fried rice. Other than that, everything was wonderful!"
