"It always seems a little awkward travelling alone, and consequently having dinner alone. I sat at the bar here and enjoyed a wonderful dinner on my own. The bartender was attentive but not intrusive, and made excellent suggestions for food and wine. I felt safe and comfortable. Single-safe."

"Making a reservation was easy- online. We were seated immediately with a 530pm reservation on a Saturday night. The waitress who seated us called me "Sir"- I am clearly a woman, so that was a little embarrassing. It was our first time here so I expected more "tricks" from the chef. We didn't see anything too exciting unfortunately. Expensive dinner- $200 for two but we knew that coming in. It was a nice night out. The sushi was incredible- best I've tasted in a long time. Boyfriend enjoyed the steak and hot sake."

"Nothing special or flashy here. Simple Japanese steak house with a diverse menu including several sushi options. Service is very good and our chef, "Lam-chop", was funny and interactive. Short of lighting an 'onion volcano' on the flattop and flipping salt and pepper shakers, the excitement level is minimal at best. The food quality was very good and the tables are best for small groups of 7 or 8. Anything larger and they split you up between two tables, which makes it difficult to mingle or converse with a bigger group. I expected something much more, especially from a restaurant in the historic Royal York. Reserve your money for other local establishments like The Sultan's Tent or Blowfish if you're looking for more excitement and value."

"Haven t been there for years. Was a BDay celebration. Not crowded (like it used to be - 2 sides to that). A Lot less enthusiasm on the part of the cooks, however, was still fun (different) and the food was good - if a bit overpriced. We mentioned it was a birthday and each got a bowl of green tea ice cream for free (quite nice with baileys). Probably could do without the Happy B Day song (no kids were there), but its the thought that counts. I ll be back... eventually."

"This was a very special gift given to me and my beautiful girlfriend from my mom. What a great evening: to start, the hosts were so cordial and took our coats right away, we were greeted with a drink and were seated!
Next was the food and that was where the magic happened!! The chef was very comical and professional!!! The food tasted better than any other place we have experienced! We were taken care of so very well and I just say the entire staff were extremely friendly!
We are going back in the near future!!!
Keep up the fantastic service!!!!! You should be very proud!!!
As a side note, I was taken here, once again by my lovely mom, 16 years ago and the experiences are always identical! A true mark of a great establishment!!!
Continue to flourish!!!!!!!!! I will see you very soon!!!

"I had visited Benihana previously at other locations around the world but this one was the worst. Firstly I was not alloted a table till the last minute and was asked to go towards the back side to find the table without giving any proper instructions. Then I was asked to go in the front. It took a while till I was informed where I'll be sitting.
The food was not upto the mark as well. Food did not feel fresh and seasonings were bland. Overall, not a good experience.

"Went as a couple and had a great experience. Before you even get inside the restaurant, the beauty of the "Royal York" hotel has taken you in. The restaurant is large, but kind of cozy as well. You get to watch the chef cook your food right at the table, and he serves it to you in courses. We both had the chatteaubriand with lobster tail, and it did not disappoint. We had the tempura vegetables as an appetizer and they were good as well. Paired it up with a fine French red wine, and enjoyed it immensely. It is not cheap, but it is a good bang for the buck. We will be back for sure."

"This restaurant is a definite must do when staying at the Royal York. Service was great, food was delicious and everyone treated us like royalty. They even remembered it was our special anniversary and brought us a lovely plate with dessert goodies to celebrate. Thanks."

"The service is great. The price very high. It's stuck in the basement. They add their own tip and then ask for gratuity. Not that great compared to Benihana in other countries"

"I have been here several times for the food and always loved it. It had been about 2 years since I went last and when I came this time the prices were extremely high and I feel not worth it. I understand being downtown comes with a higher price point but with all the other restaurants like this now, it's not worth the travel. I can go elsewhere for the same food and quality for about half the price. Not to mention the chef at our table was boring and the service was not very good."
