  • "Wonderful steak, terrific sides, great ambience, great place to eat.....I had an Italian dish once at Ben and Jack's and it was terrific. So its not only a steak place - - everything is great!"

  • "This was a good steak find in a traditional steak and wine night. Steak for 2 was really good. Service was attentive. Ambience was lacking but if that's not as important as the food and service then this place works well."

  • "Went with a few buddies for a bachelor party celebration. The meat was fantastic and they treated us very well. The sides were average and the drinks were really expensive."

  • "We preferred going to the 44th street location but it's under renovation and our first experience at the 28th Street Ben & Jack's was less than optimal. However this time was terrific. We were seated in the main dining room as opposed to upstairs (a BIG difference). The service was excellent (as usual) and the food is always delicious. The 'cherry on the cake' was the manager, Adeem. He was gracious, solicitous, and funny. A very interesting man and made sure that we were being well taken care of and having a most excellent experience. He even bought us a round of drinks after finding out we were celebrating an anniversary. He was a big part of insuring we would make it back to the 21st Street location soon!"

  • "Our party of five was really happy with our food and service. Filet was amazing and I loved the veggies as well. Wine list was extensive and expensive! We found a great Malbec that paired well with the steak. Overall the service team worked like a well oiled machine, though we had to wait longer than we should have to get our check at the end of the meal. We really enjoyed it though!"

  • "Great food, great service. Just wish the atmosphere was a bit more unique or intimate. We had the bacon appetizer, steak for 2, and creamed spinach + mashed potato. All was delicious. And our waiter was very friendly. Will return for a special occasion"

  • "my husband ordered oysters which were very good and he said that his steak, although flavorful was a bit tough. i had the chicken florentine which was fine although nothing spectacular. the spinach was out of a box i am quite sure. all in all certainly not the best steak in new york. the staff was very helpful and the drinks were good. one expects more in new york i guess"

  • "Being from out of town we make it a point to visit the nicer restaurants in Manhattan when in NYC. This was our first visit to Ben & Jacks. Service was great. Although full of flavor some parts of the steak for 2 were tough. The tail and calamari were bland. Idk I was jus expecting more. Although the reputation, I can't say Ben & Jack's lived up to the hype or that it's the best steakhouse in Manhattan. "

  • "Always one of my favorites. One of the best steaks in NYC. Consistent great quality."

  • "Hands-down, Ben & Jacks is the best steak in NYC!! It is perfect every time. Everything on the menu is prepared perfectly, and they are consistent with that perfection. If you are craving a perfectly prepared steak dinner, go here. Service is top notch and very friendly. Been a favorite of mine since they opened."

  • "I have been eaten here for almost six times, this restaurant is excellent with everything such as services, nice environment and especially the food."

  • "The steak for two was out of this world. Great service. Noise level was moderate which I like. The peas and onions and Ceasar salad topped it off. "

  • "Excellent steakhouse! Try the bacon appetizer. It's to die for!"

  • "Ben and Jack's is just o.k. The service was good but at times a bit annoying. They were serving french style (putting the sides on our plates for us). I ordered the filet of sole - o.k. but a bit overcooked. We also ordered a side of the lobster mac & cheese - not good. The cheese seemed to be Velveeta. When my main came the server (without asking) put some lobster mac & cheese on my plate. The cheese ran into my fish - gross. He then proceeded to place onion rings on my crowed plate. I had to tell him twice to stop. One friend had the sirloin (she liked it). Our other friend has the scallops (good but only 5 smallish scallops). This was our first and last time here. Del Frisco's is the place to go for steak/seafood."

  • "We are treated like royalty at Ben and Jacks ! It's Like family when you eat at this notable Steakhouse. The porterhouse steak is the way to go when ordering here,Dry aged to perfection ! This Steakhouse has all the sides you can ever want to accompany your dinner. Some of are favorites are the Blue point oysters and the Giant shrimp cocktail. If you can fit the desert the sclag is the way to go .. Just to mention Dino are waiter is the best you can ask for service !! thanks for another great dinner at B&J !!"

  • "We are NEVER disappointed when deciding to eat at Ben & Jack's. The food is consistently delicious and the service is very good. They treat you like they appreciate the fact that you chose their restaurant to have dinner at. Always a smile and always a 'thank you for coming'. We love Ben & Jack's and it's our favorite 'steak' house."

  • "Multiple friends remarked that their food was excellent, better than Lugers, Wolfgangs etc. Big compliments from foodies."

  • "Second time at Ben & Jacks and both experiences have been excellent. Steak knowledgable waiters make you feel confident of your decisions, and portion sizes are true to menu descriptions. Steaks seasoned and cooked perfectly as ordered. "

  • "Ben and Jack's Steakhouse is a really nice restaurant to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, engagement or anniversary. The steak lived up to it's reputation and the seafood pasta was fresh and delicious. The service was very good. The waiter was very attentive. The pre-fixe lunch was a very good value since that was within my budget. "

  • "Food portions were generous. Surf and turf was amazing. Highly recommend. Staff very attentive. "

  • "Found this restaurant on-line and decided to give it a try. Wait staff was extremely courteous but far from "professional" in terms of menu presentation, specialties, etc. No big deal as it's the food that counts, but thought it worth noting. Ordered prime rib thinking that to be a safe bet. Steak was very tough and stringy - worst prime rib I've personally ever had. My wife ordered lobster and though not a large specimen it was nevertheless chewy to the point of being nearly inedible - worst lobster she's ever had. Should have stayed off the beaten path and instead found one of many little holes in the wall where a great NY dinner could've been had for a heck of a lot less money!!!"

  • "Friendly professional staff. Great ambience. Great energy, indicative of life in NYC. All tables full of people enjoying their meals. Best bacon ever!!!"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Look the food was great, the service was great but I just get annoyed when a restaurant adds a gratuity for a table of two. If I thought their service was worth 25 % then they've done themselves a disservice. It's the customers call on the value of service. They never did this when I ate there in June 2013. What's changed? Despite the good food, I'll never go back here again. "
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "I went there with three business acquaintances. We were seated and then completely left alone, no request for drinks or any attention. Overall the food is adequate (my veal chop was full of fat) my friends filet migon was well overdone, he had asked for medium rare. One of colleagues didn't even eat the dessert as it was stale. To say that the wait staff was rude would be an understatement. I will definitely not return to Ben and Jack's.There are so many really good steak houses in NYC that this one is not necessary. Next time back to Vic and Anthony's or The Strip House !"

  • "Best steakhouse in town. Service is best. Steak is best. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I was not impressed. The meat is definitely not aged. I wouldn't recommend the place. It's a petty because I thought it would great. I was only impressed by the whipped cream. "

  • "The food was delicious, the service very good and the ambience was very "New York""

  • "Went for lunch - prixe fix. Food was mediocre at best with no substitutions allowed. Waiter was a bit surly. Had to ask for the wine list and chase the waiter down to order. Restaurant was empty.."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Our waiter wasn't friendly in the beginning, but kind of warmed up in the end. I am not sure if it was because we did not run up a bar tab and thus his tip would be lower, or he just has a poor attitude. The ribeye was very good though."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Very good steak, nice room. Obviously, though, expensive."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Steak and seafood were terrific, waiters were knowledgeable and helpful. [Note, while prime rib is on the menu, it clearly was re-heated making it more like a rib steak than a rib roast, while tasty, I'd only recommend it on weekends.]"

  • "As so many of the traditional steak chains this one rates very good and has been consistent"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Been here before, hardly a regular. Service can be spotty. Food is good, though. This time the server was a tad temperamental. Sometimes being friendly is associated with a type of tourist that some servers try to steamroll. When the problems were identified the server became aloof and deserted us."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "I appreciated that our reservation was held although part of our party was late. For a Friday night though, it wasn't packed. The food was okay, nothing to call home about. The service was good, our waiter was fun and energetic. According to others in my party, the fruity martinis were good; tasty and strong enough."

  • "I was going to be in NYC for a work trip and wanted to plan one nice dinner with my co-workers. In knowing in was restaurant week there, I randomly chose Ben and Jacks from their website and pre-planned menu. We were very pleased when we arrived and were seated immediately. The service, atmosphere, decor and most of all the food was wonderful. It gave us the total feeling of NYC that we we looking for. It just felt great be there and we had a wonderful experience from start to finish. You would never know that it was the last night (and a Friday) of restaurant week by their smooth delivery and and service with a charm."

  • "My wife and I decided to give Ben and Jack's a try last Friday night. Our experience was mixed. The staff were all very pleasant and professional. The ambiance was that of a steak house, not overly romantic, but it seemed clean and the tables were larger and spaced better than many other NY restaurants. On to the food. The only total miss was the soup of the day. It was (beef with rice) a weak broth with over cooked chunks of vegetables that tasted like it came out of a can. The rest of our dinner, filet mignon and a salmon plate, were excellent. We also chose a bottle of wine to accompany our dinner, a 2009 Jordan Cabernet, which was also very good. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience."

  • "Great food! It was a great deal to try 3 courses (an appetizer, entree, and dessert) for Restaurant Week as it is very pricey normally. The service was great and attentive, and the food did not disappoint!"
