Ben and Jack's on 5th Avenue
June 2013Good food, good wine and good company. what more does one need in NYC? Not a place for food-peckers or skeletons that might still be living!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMUnostentatious NY Steak experienceBen and Jack's is a friendly and inviting neighborhood steakhouse that is great to take an out-of-state visitor for a first class NY steak that isn't a place you feel required to wear a jacket. The service is excellent, and the food is terrific.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDid not disappointI had been going to B & J at the 44th St location for several years, when, last year, the owners decide to renovate and close til 2014. Knowing that there was another location on 5th Ave, I was hesitant to go since I had tried other "offshoots" of Peter Luger that had multiple locations, and generally, there was only that stood out. Needless to say, this B&J did not disappoint me. Some familiar waitstaff faces from Peter Luger, no need to look at the menu, just say "porterhouse for two, rare" with the potato and spinach sides, and everyone is happy. The noise level is somewhat high, but the tables are spaced well enough not to really impede your own table's conversation. I will continue to visit this branch until 44th St. reopens. Try it!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the bestSteak and service are among the best in NY.
Always a great meal. Terrific place to take business associates.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak everEverything was delicious, beautifully served, gigantic sized portions, great special sauce.I wish I could afford to eat here every day. besides yummy steak, they offer a fantastic varied and well thought out menu for those not fond of steak. this is an amazing restaurant.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but definitely worth itI was there with my girlfriend for a steak dinner. We both had the New York Sirloin and it was fantastic. Done exactly to the point we wanted.
It was a little louder than we expected, but that's hardly the restaurant's fault.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBEST STEAK IN NYC !My favorite restaurant in NYC . The service was excellent !

Great food and great service what else can you ask for!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was amazing. ServiceEverything was amazing. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Steak was the best I've had in a long time, if ever. Those thick bacon slices for appetizer were ridiculousy good. Can't wait to go back!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLarge portions of delicious food!My wife and I went to Ben and Jack's on 5th Avenue on Saturday evening and had a delightful meal with a very attentive server who made a key recommendation of the Porterhouse for Two, and he hit it out of the park! The steak was cooked to perfection, served on a sizzling platter, with a slight crust on the surface, and a buttery, tender inside... The Creamed Spinach and German Potatoes were great accents, and the desserts were awesome, although neither my wife nor I were able to finish them... And there was plenty of rich, creamy Schlag to go around!! Large portions of delicious food rules!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMQuintessential SteakhouseThis is your quintessential steakhouse where the cuts are big and thick and the sides sautéed in mounds of butter. The rib eyes we ordered were cooked to perfection with just the right amount of marbling. We were seated on the left side of the restaurant where the noise level from the main room was somewhat dampened by a divider. However, if you have a loud table in this area it will be all that you will hear during your entire meal - slight inconvenience when all you care about is having a nice big juicy steak with crispy french fries and warm apple streusel topped with their homemade whip to end your meal.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFANTASTIC! This is a warmFANTASTIC!
This is a warm and comfortable place to eat great food!

The bartender at The Carlton recommended it and we were not disappointed!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here many times and maybeBeen here many times and maybe it's me but steaks while good don't have that great flavor they used too and don't seem as tender. Service not up to usual either. Maybe it's the merging of the staff from 44th St. This the second time in a row that I'm not super happy. Hope this is not a pattern.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been coming to Ben &I've been coming to Ben & Jacks for years. Always great food & service but a little off this time. Steak not as tender as usual. Hope for improvement next time.1/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here many times and stillBeen here many times and still the best steakhouse in the city.
