Quality of food was good, wish we had extra they unfortunately don't do the fire volcano and surprisingly no noodles ;( however we did receive a free photo copy for each at table and ice cream ( the dessert menu limit was hoping for fried ice cream) instead we had pineapple boat which was fresh and juicy.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experienceGreat atmosphere, well prepared delicious food, showmanship, great drinks and warm hospitality!

Very accommodating increased my reservation from 8 to 10 with no problem.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very dissappointed withI was very dissappointed with our visit to Benihana. I love Japanese hibachi food and my family and I go to many different hibachi restaurants in the area and I have to say honestly that ALL of them are better than Benihana. The food tasted good, but I was dissappointed that the show was not as good as in other restaurants. I don't need a show because I've been through so many but there was a family with young children at our table and there really wasn't much about the show that wow'd them.
Also, I was very dissappointed that we did not get lo mein with our meal. My husband also did not care for the mustard sauce as much as the white sauce that is usually served. I understand they have their own way of doing things, but I won't be back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDining fun for the family!We had an excellent dining experience at Benihana - Orlando. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Our table chef was excellent! He was funny and engaged the kids in the dining experience. He kept the entire table involved during his excellent chopping, slicing and dicing techniques. My kids said that was the best steak they have ever had! We were visiting Orlando and will make sure to return next time we are in town.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great dinner with myHad a great dinner with my son. Very accommodating to my four year old. The food and service were great - very nice dinner!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always excelent experienceAs always excelent experience ! My friends also
Enjoyed so much their first experience there!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best in food and fun bar none!Service, chef and food were excellent. It was a birthday celebration for my fiancee and myself (he is March 10th, I am March 20th) and though his order was incomplete (he ordered the steak, chicken and colossal shrimp trio) he never received the colossal shrimp; just the shrimp that came with the appetizer. However the excellent management team quickly remedied the situation with an additional discount for the oversight. It was my first time to Benihana's and we both completely enjoyed ourselves. You have an excellent staff, great food and two more lifetime customers.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMStandard Benihana quality.Standard Benihana quality. Good food, decent price. Great atmosphere3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMcelebrationIt is a great place to celebrate, whether anniversary or birthdays. The restaurant is beautiful.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch Japanese TeppanyakiTop notch Japanese Teppanyaki experience. Benihana uses top quality cuts of beef and higher quality ingredients than the other similar Japanese steak houses. It is absolutely delicious. This particular location gets very busy so dine early or late because between 6:30 and 8:30 it is slammed. The menu has a more creative and extensive selection than your average Teppanyaki restaurant. Benihana is #1 in my book.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOrlando Benihana is one ofOrlando Benihana is one of the best Benihana restaurants. Our "chef", Nolan, was terrific. Our group included a seven year-old and Nolan made his participation part of the program.
We recommend Benihana though be sure and make reservations - the wait can be very long.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI love it!! Worth every penny.I love it!! Worth every penny.

The overall experience was wonderful.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for entertaining group dinnerThe cooks and servers at Benihana provided us with a very entertaining dinner! Service was very attentive, for example your drink was refilled before you ever had the chance to ask. Additionally, all of the staff was friendly and welcoming. The only downside was that the food was on the bland side, a surprise for hibachi. I was happy to see that our chef paid extra attention to he child at our table, seeing to it she had a great time and making sure she her food was to a child's liking.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe come here often, the foodWe come here often, the food is great and it is a good value. Excellent service with entertaining chefs.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time, good food. ThisGreat time, good food. This was my first time visiting and I was concerned about it living up to all the hype but that was not an issue. We did change our reservation though OpenTable but it didn't show up at the restaurant so we had quite a bit of a wait. We sat at the bar though and had some apps and some drinks. It was happy hour which last until 8pm so the prices were reasonable. The hibachi was great particularly the fried rice, I think that was the highlight of the meal. Also the vegetables were very fresh which was a pleasant surprise. Overall the meal was great and I would go again should I come back to the area.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMwe make it our business towe make it our business to visit this gem of a restaurant everytime we are in orlando excellent chefs and food3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, great service.6 of us had a great meal, as always at Benihana. Dined here several times and alway excelent food..just wish people wouldn't bring babies in High chairs to this type of resturant. Spoils the ambiance alittle when they start crying all through the meal, or perhaaps Benihana's should re=arange the setting , so as to have a 'quieter side for ' non Family Adults..but still great food and great service1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
