If you want a really good and really popular hibachi - style Japanese restaurant, this is the place. I had hibachi chicken and rice and it was perfect. The makes you feel like your Japan itself.

Reservations aren't really reservations. They are an idea of a possibility. If you book near 2:30 to 2:35 pm they will seat you after 3:00 pm to ensure you can't order from the lunch menu. They have a menu "thing" that is confusing. They will give a limited menu with all the expensive items, if you ask you can get another menu that offers everything. Not sure why they lead with the limited menu then when asked give you a full menu, but that is how they do it. Double check with the server that they have you meal entered correctly. With a full table your party and a party of strangers you know the order will be right. The food was great and the chef was excellent. Just a few things I will do differently next time to make the meal a little easier next time.

Made 5:45pm reservations yesterday. We arrived by 5:30pm and were seated very quickly. I was surprised how busy they were since it was a Thursday and after the holiday. Our server was very friendly and great attitude, wish I could remember his name. Our chef was Noah, he seemed rushed and not very good when it comes to interacting with kids. I can understand that he?s a ?chef? and being able to cook the meals properly should be his main focus, BUT, he ignored the kids requests and almost acted like they weren?t speaking to him! You work at a restaurant located 10 mins from DISNEY WORLD, please hire chefs that can work with CHILDREN! My kids wanted to see FIRE and Noah doesn?t do any tricks or fire until AFTER THE MEAL IS DONE. He was boring and had ZERO personality. We would more fun watching the chef at the next table, who was making the dinner so much better for his customers. Management needs to make sure that Chefs are consistent and offer similar interaction and have reasonable ability to work with families and children. Step it up folks!

It took 60 minutes beyond our reservation time to be seated, but once we were our server and chef were both fantastic. The food itself was incredibly delicious. The show put by the chef was very entertaining.

Reservations don't mean much here. Plan on waiting another 30 to 45 minutes AFTER your reservation. It's very annoying.

Benihana is the best hands down. Whenever I am in the area I always try to at least come and sit down to eat with my fiancé. I love the garlic butter. Which is always been my favorite. I?m on my way there to have a meeting tomorrow evening and really looking forward. High class & five stars every time!!

This place is a complete joke. I made reservations at 7 and when I arrived at 645 saw it was busy. I asked the manager if I would be able to have my reservation time because I have 2 kids under 2. She said yes maybe 10 minutes past. I waited until 745 and still nothing. I went to ask how long and she said she couldn't tell me. She then proceeded to seat 3 more people. All of which came in after me. I asked for her bosses information and she refused. I will let everyone know how horrible or service this place provides

Benihana is always a lot of fun and this location did not disappoint! Parking was a nightmare but luckily they had FREE valet parking for us so it was not a problem. Food and service were excellent as always.

Coming from out of town, I had never had Benihana's. I ordered the spicy hibachi chicken, and the food was delicious. The meal was extremely filling and priced fairly. I would come back in future visits to Orlando. The location is pretty close to some nice bars and the touristy parts of Orlando.

always enjoy this place. had a reservation, but we still had to wait 20 min. food was very good, and chef was fun. Anniversary Diner for us.

Came with a reservation for 20. They squeezed us on two tables that were way too small for us. Our servers were unprepared, rude and the service took ridiculously long. For the prices you?d think they could provide halfway decent service. We were also told we couldn?t substitute anything everything was an up charge. Not a good place to come if you value good service though that much is clear. Jason is TERRIBLE. I witnessed him disrespect the MANAGER and I?m very confused as to why he has a job. The manager also avoided our table like the plague.

Worst thanksgiving EVER! They served me and my whole party cold food, but I'm the only one who spoke up about it. My glass was greasy and dirty too. I sent my plate back and it came out cold again with less food. Shrimp were overcooked. Steak was supposed to be medium well and it was overcooked too. How can food be coming off the grill and still cold. This is my second time at this location visiting from out of town and both times were disgusting. Don't eat here. Go to Kobe's.

Called ahead for my birthday and asked if the can accommodate 11 people. They said absolutely so I made the reservation 5 days in advance. Called again 2 days in advance to confirm they still had my reservation.

The take out food is usually top notch. My husband and I who are local ordered food last night from the resort close by. I had the Chateaubriand which was good with the exception of three pieces of grizzle which is totaling unacceptable for this meal. My husband did not even eat his dinner. It was overcooked and our order was missing rice. The quality of the food was subpar.

Michael, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the dining experience!

Nice looking restaurant with large capacity seating compared to other Japanese steakhouses. We had only a few minutes wait to be seated. Servers, waiter and cook were all friendly. You could sit in the lounge area to have dinner if you didn't want to do the traditional meal cooked in front of you. The food tasted fine but prices were kind of high for what you got, even with dinner portions. Was disappointed there were no noodles. I immediately had diarrhea after eating. It continued into evening. My husband and son were fine however. I noticed they used safflower oil a lot so it might not have agreed with me. They did have a lunch menu on a Sunday, which was nice but the server tried to give my husband a lunch portion when he ordered the dinner. A lady at our table said she ordered lunch portion twice and got charged for dinner price in the past so be careful. For a famous chain, I expected more of a wow factor in the cooking presentation and food, but it was just meh.

Everything was PERFECT! The food was so good and expertly prepared before our eyes. My kids loved the "show"!

It was storming outside so my clothes got wet, When I walked in Sasha and the other guy with glasses were laughing at me. Very unprofessional. & the lady with the glasses and short light hair gave me a hard time from the second we spoke, she acted as though I had the wrong address. The food was great, the waiter was great, the chef was great, the front lobby employees were awful!!! They Were not welcoming at all !!

It?s definitely NOT an amazing 5 star restaurant. It?s a high volume franchise that is not ran really well, marginally OK.

The food is just like any other Benihana's (ok chain restaurant Japanese), but if you want to wait 2+ hours after being quoted 1 hour, this particular location is definitely the place for you. You'll have the added bonus of being treated like a moron for asking how much longer when asking after each previously elapsed quoted time passes (you will most certainly do this multiple times). Do yourself a favor and avoid the hassle.
