They charge $3 for fried rice but no charge for plain white rice. Noodles dont come with it that's another $3 charge. If you want anything extra they charge you. Service was slow and they cook did not interact with the table...wasn't even busy for a friday night at 7 PM and I made a pointless reservation. KOBES is by far way better and cheaper. A family of 5 over $200 on okay food. Will not be going back.

We arrived early for reservation but were not
Seated until 30 minutes past our confirmed reservation. We were promised kids menus but had to get up after 10
Minutes to get them ourselves. There was no parking near the restaurant. Our chef was entertaining but not child appropriate with two kids at the table. Food was very good.

If you're looking for great food, this is the spot. Hibatchi tables of 8 where a chef prepares the food with flair is standard. I recommend upgrading to the fried rice. I generally get the filet mignon and colossal shrimp, though everything I've ever had at the hibatchi table is delicious. They handle any food allergies easily for guests and offer substitutions for gluten free and dairy free versions, as requested by the other party at our table. The food is always delicious and now features the same shrimp sauce as the Miami Samurai, the location that introduced me to the hibatchi experience. Attached to the Hilton, it has it's own entrance, or can also be accessed by hotel guests. Parking tickets can be validated as you leave to avoid paying the fee for the self parking lot. There is valet offered by the hotel, though I'm unsure the cost. It is always a treat to eat here and never disappoints.

Well let’s start off by me advising it was my 25th wedding anniversary during my reservations which never was acknowledged the entire evening.
Asked waiter for pepper never got it entire meal.
Water glass was empty half the dinner.
Bottled wine was left next to the hot grill and not in an ice bucket.
The chef was good and the food was prepared as to be expected However, our waiter had dredd locks all wound up like a giant bee hive and I only saw him when he was dropping something off rather than checking on if we needed anything.
This waiter or lack thereof also left the beverage round tray on grill until it began to smoke and bubble. This happened almost immediately after the chef wiped the grill and this guy started handing checks out after all of our food had just come off the grill.
I felt as if I was being pushed out and I hadn’t even eaten all my food and then to top it off I had just a couple of bites of food left and he picked up my plate as I was talking to my wife and carried it away..

Now I have been a Benihana customer for years from the west coast to the east coast and I have never felt so abused especially after spending $150.00 for two adults....

Rocky would not be happy that I was treated like this or acknowledged for this should have been special dinner......
😢😠🤬👘🍜🍤⛩🎎

Anyway, this may be a freak incident but I was not impressed with this so called waiter and his inability to make guests comfortable or even attending to their basic needs........

Because of this special evening I tried to down play the service to my wife and I didn’t ask to see a manager only as to not ruin our evening more than was necessary!!!!

We were very disappointed from the fact that they did not honor the certificate for my daughter’s birthday for $30 off saying it has no code. Why does it say on yoyr website to print certificate if the certificate is not ready yet. That’s very misleading!! Even the manager couldn’t do anything about it. She gave us a sushi plate for free but it made us feel like we were fooled. The cook was a starter and didn’t know what he was doing. They sang happy birthday for my daughter!!

The service was awful - our waiter was very slow and somewhat incompetent -we did not even have our salads when the chef arrived. We had to remind the waiter of numerous things. The chef was also slow and over cooked everything. He did not provide much of a show. The food was still good, but over cooked - vegetables limp, shrimp rubbery, and medium rare steak brown throughout.

The timing when cooking for 8 is how to deliver food to all parties in reasonable order, so one person is not left waiting for their main course when others are finished. They need to work on that. Food tasted great.

We had so much fun at this meal! After a long day at Disney, this was the perfect ending. Our server was friendly and attentive -- but the highlight was our cook (T...) He was interacted with all of the guests at the table, especially this kids. (At the end, we laughed so much when he tossed a piece of shrimp into her Benihanna hat. So fun.) Good meal too.
