It was the worst experience we have ever had at Benihana and we have gone there many times. The waitress who took our order didn't understand us and we couldn't understand her. Impossible to get another drink. The whole experience was awful. Called manager over and he wasn't any more pleasant either. Waitress and manager both were not accommodating at all. Taj our chef was excellent and cooked everything perfectly. If get that waitress again will just walk out

The location is in Hilton so you may pass it as you cannot see from road, but once you get there it's a lovely atmosphere and we received excellent service from hostess and chef. Food was excellent but pricey. Reserve this for special occasions.

Unfortunately, we did not have a great experience with the service this time. It was my fiancé's first time there as we were celebrating his birthday. I have been there before and had a great experience. The server we had was absolutely awful. He had a bad attitude. He was terrible with checking on us to see if we wanted more drinks. Super slow. A table that came in after us by 15 minutes got served way before us. We sat there waiting for the soup for 30 minutes. He also messed up the size of wine we ordered. Honestly, the worst part was his bad attitude. We are not tourists, and live very close to here but felt like we were treated as if he would never see us again so he didn't care. I don't feel like I want to ever go back now.

Delicious food and excellent service. We visit Orlando 6 times a year. We dine at this location during every trip. We've celebrated our kids' birthdays, Thanksgiving dinners and Fathers's Days. The quality of food and service are always A+++++

Rafi made our Fathers Day occasion super special.
This young kid is magnificent. He pays attention to detail and above all takes special care of kids. He ensures they always have a smile which makes a huge difference.
If anyone makes a special request for sauces made in the spot he manages to do it all. Charismatic, Professional, humble, knowledgeable and coming from the bartending industry myself; his flair in the kitchen is incomparable!
Rafi is simply the best!
Thanks a Mil

My family and I had a good time and the food was pretty good, it has been about 20 years since I've been to a Benihana and nothing has really changed except for the diverse chefs that they have now which is pretty cool. I wish that our chef was as fun as some of the other ones that I had seen around the restaurant but other than that I had an excellent meal and a great time.

We we're celebrating our anniversary and everything from the Hostess to our waitress Ava was awesome but who made our night was the Chef Rafi. The food was perfect season to perfection he's very attentive paid extra attention to our children made everyone laugh. Our experience was perfect because of Rafi he even mentioned to us that be the chef dining experience which I plan to do just because of him.
I really hope this comment reaches him he is really deserving of this praise my family and I thank you.

I didn't like getting rice before appetizer, having some of table served full meal before we got shrimp appetizer. Waitress didn't mention up charge to have rice fried. Other tables were getting the full experience. I wish we hadn't arrived 15 minutes early because the other chefs seem to do it right

We met friends for dinner. Two big issues....One it took over 2 hours to eat. Very slow service and cooking. And we had a wine glass break into the food. They replaced one plate and brought another glass of wine but there was no telling where the glass went. I was afraid to eat anything else. And then no adjustment to the bill.

 (Orlando)·Dined on April 29, 2017

Food was just okay, nothing special. Been to several other Japanese steakhouses which were much better in so many ways, and this was Benihana...expected better. Just because you put a dozen hibachi tables in a room in a hotel lobby restaurant doesn't mean it's a real Benihana. No Japanese flair, decor etc. beyond the front fascia. Waited almost a half hour past our reservation time to be seated, and then another 20 minutes for someone to finally come by to take our drink order (of course that was after I walked up to the front desk and told them wr were about to leave). Very disappointed all things considered. Between the lackluster decor, long wait time (with a reservation) and overall poor performance not a place we would go again.
