Diner Reviews
  • "We had dinner at Benihana's to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The food was cooked to perfection, the show the chef put on was excellent! We've dined at many Japanese restaurants and none can top Benihana's in food, and ambience."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The experience begins with the friendly staff that welcomes you. The serving staff is friendly and professional and the chef works up his usual magic. The food was very well done. We had some folks who had some dietary requests at the table and they easily made it for them with no issue. In other words, everyone was respected and everyone walked away very happy."

  • "Pass this restaraunt by! The "chef" did NOT know any of the "tricks" that make going to a Hibachi restaurant fun. We had a lively group of 8, and he did not interact at all. Our waitress did not come back to refill drinks all through dinner, and the food was so overcooked we left almost all of it on our plates. We spent over $270 on this disappointing experience."

  • "As a family of 6, we go here at least once a month! Just met a new chef at the Hilton Orlando location, Damian, he was fantastic! Thank you chef for a great experience!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We chose it to celebrate Father's Day with our children ages 16 & 12. I found that even in a very expensive dining environment there are no longer any minimum requirements of the public to deminstrate the most common of courtesies to other patrons in restaurants nowadays. Unfortunately Benihana at Hilton Lake Buena Vista was no different in their handling of what I can only refer to as the longest most blatantly rude demonstration of noise tolerance ever witnessed in a public place."

  • "After my first meal at a Benihana - in The Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Canada - in August of 1982, I made an effort to seek out other locations, especially as there was not a Japanese restaurant where I lived for over 30 years. At the one at Disneyworld, you can see the wonderment in the eyes of children; the train and volcano are two favourites. The chefs know this and always get extra applause for these. The ways the eggs are treated are varied, but always somewhat magical. Our evening at the Benihana in the Hilton Buena Vista was excellent."

  • "The atmoshphere at Benihana's is always fun - thanks to the chef. The food is very good. I had steak and shrimp. The steak was done to order and the shrimp were moist."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Food was good....a little over priced in my opinion.....we took grandchildren...they weren't thrilled with the food.....I would go back, but only with adults."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Behihana is such a great place to eat at! They have many options for everyone. I got the lemon chicken which was great and the fried rice is the best, I will def go back!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We chose this restaurant because would be a fun choice for my granddaughter. The food is good. Not amazing but good. It's a lot of food. The show tht the chef makes is ok. Not as good as I remembered it to be from previous years. But is a good restaurant for a larger group. "

  • "We have been to Benihana in Orlando numerous times and never had a server who was so intense that made us feel stupid about eating at a Japanese restaurant. He kept announcing the table was hot and explained the menu as if we were unable to read. We did have other guest who spoke another language at our table but they spoke English just fine and understood everything. They even told him they had been to the restaurant before. Nothing to say bad about the food... Just an ignorant server who needs be adjusted. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Don't go here unless you would like to be forced by the staff to sit with cultures who blatantly don't like Americans. We had say down and an international family was being sat at our table. For some unknown reason they DID NOT want to sit with us and made it clearly known to staff. Staff would not sit them anywhere else. Entire meal was ruined because this family did nothing but cause scenes, disrupt our meal, judge us none stop. Glare at us the entire time and rude to the waitress. At end of the meal manager had nothing to say except he wants us to come back to have a normal experience. I will not be back! "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "I am a Benihana regular visit this restutant often this was the worst experience I have ever had. I also did not appreciate the fact that my kids ordered from the kids menu however there was a 3rd kid at the table whom ordered from the adult menu but the chef decided to split my kid corn 3 ways and give it to him. "

  • "We booked for Mothers day the day of and were extremely satisfied. Service was great as well as the food. They were very interactive with my kids. 2 thumbs up!"

  • "We went for my wife's birthday. We took our 2 and 5 year old. The staff was very nice and responsive to our needs and the hibatchi chef kept the kids entertained. He was more engaged with them than I had expected. It was a very nice experience. The food was excellent as well. Jay was an outstanding server!"

  • "Very Very excelent. The best food. Excelent restaurant. I recommend"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • " Service was poor, seated one hour after reservation; waitress waisted drinks all over herself. The chef cooked food one item at a time. He popped himself in the face with the fried rice and left the food unattended on the grill. He had no personality. This Benihana location ruined our first experience."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Good food and fun. A mostly grown-up night out. Would have been perfect if the kids running around screaming had of been asked to settle down. Nice way to get Disney off the brain for a bit while visiting Orlando."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "I tried Benihana because I'm such a fan of Kobe steakhouse, another Hibachi restaurant around Orlando. I compared to Kobe all night, and each time, Benihana lost. Instead of Kobe's miso soup, Benihana serves a soup with fried onion strings soaking in the broth. Instead of the delicious "white sauce", Benihana has a mustard sauce that doesn't go with anything. The chicken fried rice (an upcharge of $3.50 over plain white rice) was overcooked and crunchy. And the most bizarre: the vegetables that come with the meal, onions & mushrooms, were served to each person AFTER everyone received their entree. Because you eat as your served, this meant that most of us were done with our meal before we got our veggies. I'll stick with Kobe for hibachi."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "I have dined at many branches of this chain around the world. They consistently deliver good quality food. This branch in Orlando was no exception."
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "Great service, fantastic drinks and the chef was entertaining. The kids really enjoyed watching their food be prepared right in front on them. On the pricey side but well worth it. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We went for our son's birthday and informed the staff when we made our reservation. Our chef was very quiet and did not put on the show of making our meal like our neighboring tables were getting. At other tables, the wait staff sang happy birthday, but they never came to do that for our son. He was really disappointed. The food was quote bland compared to our previous experiences"
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Food was delicious and so fresh, service was impeccable! We had such a great time at benihanas! We can't wait to go back. Do not hesitate u will not be disappointed!!!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Our experience is typically very good here which is why we visit on a regular basis. I will say that all chefs are not the same though and some cook more to our satisfaction than others. Some are more/less liberal with soy sauce, butter, salt, etc. when cooking and it comes down to a personal preference. All in all, our experience was very good and we'll continue to return time and again."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The lobster taste like dirt, the amount of fried rice was small."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Dining at Benihana is a true experience. Food is exelent orepared at the tepanyaki table. It's a splendiåd show to watch when your food is cooked... Simply the best! :)"

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "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! The staff/servers were so nice and pleasant they mad our entire experience great and with a party of 11 that's not easy! Totally recommend this Hilton jem!"

  • "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."
