Benihana gets convenience points if you're staying at the Hilton - however you have much better dining options if you walk across the street to Disney Springs. I didn't have a bad meal, but I was underwhelmed - perhaps since we were in the "regular" dining room and not at a teppan grill table. Service was friendly which was a... More

What a place. Went there with the family one evening and from the moment we walked through the doors we have a fantastic evening. The service here was one of the best I have ever come across and the food was world class. The chef was entertaining and the waitress was really good. Pity we live so far away as... More

For around $20 you can enjoy one of several Hibachi style dishes, including soup, salad, shrimp, entre and tea. The food was very tasty. You will most likely need reservations if you would like to be seated where you can see the food being prepared.

This restaurant is located in the Hilton Buena Vista. Similar to other Japanese steakhouses, the diners all sit around an in-table cooking surface. The chef provides the entertainment while he prepares your food in front of you. Most meals are multi-course with soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, entree and green tea. Our chef was funny, and very skilled with his knives.... More

I stayed at the Hilton for a conference and didn't want to leave the hotel after a long day of work, so I decided to take myself here for sushi. I was seated in the bar area near the sushi and liquor bars. It was a Monday night at 7:30. The area was about one-third full. I was "promptly" ignored... More

Had the greatest night out at the Benihana Hilton. Jay our chef was an expert that really put quality food on our plates, he was the most personable chef we have had to date. Everything was cooked perfectly and delicious. Elaine was our waitress and didn't miss a step, thanks for our picture. We will always select the Hilton Benihana... More

There have been a lot of imitations of what Benihana does, none compares. Period. That being said. Those of you going to Disney World, there is a little jewel located in the Hilton at Lake Buena Vista. No offense, to the other one on International Drive, same food. Oliver was sensational. This one, intimate, charming, been there 25 years. A,... More
