    The food was good, but we were sat at 5pm with only one other table sat after us and ordered quickly and the cook didn’t show up to start cooking the food until 5:45pm. There was zero communication from wait staff on why it took so long to the point we assumed they were just cooking the food in the back and were just going to bring it to the table. Most people in the Disney Springs area have plans and we made our reservation at 5 because that should have allotted enough time to make it to a 7:30 concert. We didn’t leave the restaurant until 7pm. If the place had been packed I could understand, but to be the first table sat and wait 45 minutes before our food has begun to be cooked is ridiculous. We stay at the hotel often, but we’ll be eating elsewhere from now on.

    The server was nice but inexperienced. Our cook Juan did not do an onion volcano nor a Mickey Mouse with rice. But he burned some of the zucchinis and some onions. My New York Strip was overcooked. When we left, the hostess validated our parking ticket and not even asked us how it was or said good bye. Our friends warned us already about the poor food quality. We should have listend.

    I would not recommend this place. The food was terrible. They used 5lbs of butter, overcooked the rice and all the meat and at the same time nothing had any flavor. The chef also was not skilled what so ever and all the “tricks” he attempted, failed. The only positive about this experience is that our server was great.

    Biggest issue was wait time. We had reservations for 545 pm but took an hour to be seated. By the time we were done eating it was 8 pm. Kind of a long time commitment. Other Japanese steakhouses do the same thing, they let you make reservations but you really don’t have a reservation, it’s more of like adding your name to the hostess list and then it takes forever to get seated. Secondly, service from waiter and cook was also slow. We had to ask the cook for sauces to add to our meals. The cook was entertaining.

    Food was very good, the show good as usual and service from the waiter and chef was good. Our table was delayed by 15-20 mins beyond the reservation time but at least we were advised upon arrival of such delay. In my view attendant/greater needs to be nicer dealing with the public given she’s the first person customers interact with upon arrival, not a nasty person but should be nicer to arriving clients, a smile and friendlier face doesn’t hurt (maybe she was having a bad/long day).

    Food was mediocre at best. Steak was tough and over cooked. Sauces were tasteless. Service was exceptional and the manager was exceptional, taking one half of of one dinner. Soup wasn’t hit and meal was paced poorly.

    I’ve dined at Benihana restaurants dozens of times in many different cities. Always a pleasure, with A+ food and service. However this recent visit was horrible. Incredibly slow and sloppy sevice. The hibachi meal nothing like anything from past experiences. So disappointed, especially since we were there for a birthday celebration.

    We had made a reservation but they were running :30 min behind even with a reservation. Restaurant was extremely loud and filled with smoke from the food due to dirty exhaust fans. The ceiling tiles are covered in the oils, etc from the cooking. The chef was extremely friendly and the food was good. $7 extra per person for fried rice is a little excessive. All in all it was not worth the price we paid.

    Food was ok not as expected from previous experience but our server was terrible! Very slow and inattentive to our needs! She didn’t even ask us if we wanted refills on our drinks, brought us cold rice and didn’t bother to ask if we wanted tea or ice cream at the end of the meal (which is included in the price)! Very poor!

    Food was great and our chef - Julian was fantastic. Our sever Molly was very disappointing. Not attentive and was slightly apologetic after we ate about being busy. She wrote down our orders but still forgot what some of group ordered. For the price of the food and the fact that it’s at Disney, the service expectations should be much higher. Especially when there are other options similar in style to Benihana.

    Service was extremely slow. Appetizers were forgotten until the end of meal but manager removed from bill. We had to ask for the ice cream that came with our meal. Then had to wait forever to pay the bill. The cook didn't have much showmanship which is part of the experience. We watched other cooks doing fantastic tricks. We were there to celebrate a birthday but nothing occurred. I would try the restaurant not at hotel in orlando.

    We made reservations for 8:15 and we're not seated at our table until 9:00. This is the 3rd time we've visited this restaurant and each and every time we've had to wait quite a long time to be seated even with reservations. After being seated it took quite a while for our waitress to appear after which she took our drink order and disappeared. This would be a theme throughout the night. Our chef must have been new, he miscounted the number of shrimp needed for our meal, he overcooked our steak and totally forgot to serve the dipping sauces with our meals. His one saving grace, he was very entertaining and the fried rice was good. The ventilation in the restaurant was horrific in both the waiting area and in the eating area. This will be the last time that we visit this restaurant. We were extremely disappointed in our overall experience.

    While others at my table though the service was outstanding, it was not. I got my salad after everyone was done eating theirs. The chef asked her for things and she never brought them, including my Lobster. She never cleared my appetizer, soup, or salad plates, or even my empty glasses. The chef, however, was incredible! The zucchini was so delicious that I ate it all (I don't like zucchini!). Best food I have had at Benihana in years! He was personable and everything was cooked to perfection!
