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.

If you've been to one you've been to them all. I've dined in, maybe, five different Benihanas and I have to admit, they are consistent. Place was clean, friendly and the food was okay. I'll be the first to admit that these aren't my kind of place. I prefer the company and conversation of my dinner companions rather than the... More

I've been to some Benihanas around the world and I love!! But this time the service was too slow! We arrived at 8pm and they told us that it was going to be 30 min for us to sit, it took us 45 min, ok, not a problem! We got our table, but at 10:30pm we gave up eating, because... More

Bi-yearly visit to Benihana at Lake Buena Vista Hilton. We were extremely lucky to get for the third out of four visits Sam the Samurai as our cook. He is the most enjoyable, talented, personable, funny and pleasant person i have ever met at a restaurant. He makes the experience of Hibachi style worth the price. It is expensive $175... More

My family selected this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. The staff interacted with everyone and even celebrated the day with me by offering dessert and singing the birthday song. I was not expecting the gesture but the experience was a tangible moment that I will cherish for years to come. The food was great and the chef created artwork as... More

We went at 2:30 on a Sunday afternoon, at which time the restaurant was almost empty. We had a new chef who was a very nice guy, but he was so unbelievably slow preparing the food that it became annoying. I finally told him to not try & do jokes because at 4pm (the time we were supposed to be... More

They were conveniently located in The Hilton where I was staying. I called and ordered from my room and it was ready in less than 15 minutes. The young lady I spoke to was very friendly on the phone, and when I picked it up. I got 2 massive rolls for just under 20 bucks. And they give you plenty... More

We went to this Benihana 30 years ago when we just moved to Orlando. Of course Orlando was just a small town and the Benihana at Hilton in the Disney world territory was a big wow. Then we have been to many many hibachi grills all over the US, because we like the concept. Here, today, everything was just ok.... More
