Benihana at Fairmont Royal York
Inspired by the culture of Japan and reinvented with contemporary design, our Sushi & Sake Lounge provides the perfect backdrop to sip on premium sake while savouring expertly crafted culinary delights prepared by our skilled sushi chefs.
Benihana is now accepting Lunch reservations. Join us Tuesday through Saturday in the Lounge or on our new York Street Patio, for Poke and Donburi bowls, as well as share plates, and Signature Sake Cocktails.
Great service and wonderful and attentive staff! It was a lot of fun and our chef made the experience memorable. Thank you!
Did table service, not the table side teppanaki. Food was delicious. Small portions, so valued a 4 star. Server was excellent, friendly and professional.
We were initially seated at the Tappanyaki table. I wanted a table for 2 and that request was accommodated, no problem. The atmosphere is fun and friendly more than intimate and cozy with tables being very close together. The servers are professional and accommodating. The food was tasty. Prices on the high side but... it is Benihana, at the Royal York, in Toronto, so no surprise there!!
My family and had an excellent meal and a great time at Benihana!
With Benihana, you know what you're in for, and depending upon your POV, that's either reliability or 'not adventurous'. I had a client in town. I wanted reliability. I got it. Well satisfied.
It was pretty good food, but I would mostly recommend it for the experience of watching the chef cook in front of you.
Went for my birthday the food was great and the service was amazing !
It was an outstanding evening from the time we arrived to the time we left. Our chef was awesome and wish my friend a very happy birthday in salt on the grill. We will be back. Thanks
Great place to eat. Food is always delicious and if you are lucky you get a cook who is entertaining as well. This time was a little disappointing. Chef forgot my lobster and ran back to kitchen to get it while the rest of the food cooking became overdone. Extremely noisy. Not the place to go if you want quiet talk.
We have been coming to Benihana for over 40 years and love it and Sam is a fantastic server
Benihana is always a great outing for our family. We were lucky to have Edwin as our Teppinyaki chef, the same person we had last summer. He is truly amazing, kind, friendly, engaging and so much fun to watch!! He makes a wonderful show for the kids and Donna our waitress was great too. Food is delicious and we enjoy every time we go!!
We felt rushed. Reservation at 6pm and were done and out at 6:50. Both had fillet which was cooked perfectly but under seasoned.
Very Nice but a little bit expensive. For the rest, à Nice evening
Jerry was absolutely amazing ! Exchanged some details to catch up next time we are in the city . Best part of the trip!!!!!!
Excellent!!!Food was delicious and service was great
Fun for the kids. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend it.
We didn’t sit until 15 min after our reservations. Waited a long time for the chef to begin cooking.
Great except didn’t tell us we would be charged for pop refills
I attend the restaurant alone and was reluctant to sit at the Teppanyaki tables which are typically occupied by couples and groups enjoying the show. Unfortunately the bar menu is minimalist and i was left to choose from appies or sushi. Would have been nice to have a few more entree choices for those in the bar area. That being said the soft shell crab and smoked eel roll I have were tasty.
Excellent as always. Service was very attentive and the chef was outstanding. Overall a great evening.
What a wonderful experience. The food was so delicious. Yes it is on the expensive side, but well worth it! The experience was lovely and the food was top notch! Have the steak, you will not regret it. The staff were friendly and courteous, just a great experience all in all.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and he thought that this place was amazing. He's a reserved man and I wasn't sure how the staff would have sang him the happy birthday song but it was one lady who sang it. She sang it so soft and lovely, which didn't draw any attention to him. He wants us to go again. Amazing cook and entertainer.
Special occasions, great waiting staff, great experience after
My guest was a little late arriving, but we were accommodated 15 minutes after our reservation. That was very much appreciated.
For the experience yes but the food was not very tasty. Steak taste like how dog food smells.
Great service work on the overall taste maybe add some flavour seasoning
The Filet Mignon was tender and tasty. Everything that came with it was really yummy and very filling, good portions. The service was pretty slow, but the waitress was really nice. The chef was good but not as exciting as the other ones at the other tables. Still very impressive. I would return. Dinner for 2 costs us about $140 with no appetizers, desserts or drinks.
Great special occasion spot with generous portions! Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the showmanship of our skilled chef. Food was delicious and service was impeccable.
Great service from Liya lee and Juliya on Valentine’s Day. Fantastic experience, will be returning.
Valentine’s Day. Loved it
I wanted to see more. The only fun part was the onion volcano. It wasn’t worth 200 dollars that’s for sure. I was expecting more.
The service was great,the Ambience great. Would recommend.
The quality has gone down since last visit... the menu is NOT bilingual. Patrons dress code sadly to loose, expected a different norm at this location... look for a different restaurant if you love Japanese food....
The food was incredible and the chef was funny and so entertaining! Overall, this was a dinner date to remember and will most definitely be returning.
The teppanyaki is like a show! Real fun!
Excellent service, friendly and attentive staff; simply outstanding. Wish more restaurants had staff offering this type of customer service. Very clean restaurant. Food was delicious and was a great experience. Very impressed with the overall experience.
Toto was an excellent chef and very entertaining. It made for a great evening.
Fair menu for the winterlicious. Not a lot of options. We felt like we were second best. That's a shame
The food and service was fantastic. I brought a date here and she loved it. The table side service was tremendous.
The foodwas absolutely delicious! It was a wonderful date night with my husband!
Great service but it is slightly overpriced/overrated.
