The food was standard Japanese hibachi fare and pretty darn good. We made reservations (for six - including 3 kids) and were seated relatively quickly. The chef was friendly but clearly new as his knife skills were on par with mine. He was a better cook, however, and the meal turned out great (the meats were cooked properly, the fried... More

Compared to Kobe, Benihana is a tad bit more costly and not as good, particularly with their white sauce (which is a huge deal breaker for me and my folks). Sorry.

Nothing bad, just not a great meal. Good show by cook but the flavor of the food was not as good as other competitive chains...

This location is located within a hotel. The food and service was beyond excellent. No complaints! Be sure to get your parking ticked validated inside restaurant before leaving or you will have to pay for parking. Definitely recommend.

We've heard such great reviews and recommendations for Benihana so decided to try it on vacation. Sadly, we felt it was just ok. Our chef did not entertain at all and the meat was well over cooked. The sushi was mediocre. We will not be returning.

Very enjoyable visit. The restaurant was clean, nice bathrooms. We were pleasantly greeted upon entry and seated shortly thereafter. Our server was pleasant and helpful. Everything went smoothly in a timely manner from the first course to the last. Tay was excellent at the grill. I must say that "pleasant" is the best way to describe the evening and you... More

This place is located in the Hilton Lake Buena Vista Orlando, FL. You'll want to make reservations, because they're very busy. they have a small, but nice lounge/bar area to wait for your dinning experience. It's like every other Japanese restaurant, but awesome food and we were very pleased, especially being a holiday.

We always enjoy our dinners. Get the fried rice with your meal...It's fantastic...The filet and shrimp is great. Nothing you won't enjoy. When we are in Orlando for a conference we try to visit.

I have eaten at several Benihana, from Manhattan to Florida. They are always consistent and entertaining! Aymen was our waiter and gave excellent service. David, our chef, was personable and food was great! Located on Hotel Plaza Blvd in the Hilton Hotel. Great location.
