or after a movie."

Great matzoh ball soup. Sunday
night pasta special a steal."

This restaurant was a real
surprise. The seating was spaced far enough apart that you didn't hear everyone's conversation. The food was great, lot's of choice, fresh, served good and hot. The staff are friendly and very efficient. I would recommend The Benjamin to anyone going to that neighborhood."

I came here for a New Years Eve
dinner with another couple and had a pleasant experience. We arrived twenty minutes early so we offered to sit at the bar while they prepared our table, but the table ready for us so we sat down and looked over the menu. I ordered the sirloin steak which was well seasoned and cooked to my satisfaction. The mashed potatoes, carrots and squash were also good. I ordered a Guinness from the drink menu, but the server said they were all out and suggested another beer that paired very well with the steak. Everybody left satisfied. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Thumbs up."

It's the best place to catch
whatever you are tasting. The steak is my personal favorite. Give it a try. You will not be disappointed."

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinnig
at Benjamin's.the weather was dreadful but the spirit and atmosphere inside was more than pleasant. The menu choices are vast, the price is right and the service was perfect. Oh yes, the food was terrifc. See you next time."

The restaurant was not for me. The
service was pleasant enough. The location was great as I was going to the movies across the street. My friend's burger was good and so were her sweet potato fries. My crab cake was fair and the onion rings were battered so heavily one could not get the taste of the onion. Seemed like a good neighborhood place. I just don't live in the neighborhood."

The food was divine. It was so
full of flavor. Can't wait to return."
Dined on 11/18/2013
We have been here previously and
always enjoyed the good. Last night our appetizer was terrible and my entree was at best mediocre. I won't return"

Certainly not fine dining by a
long stretch, but if you're looking to grab a burger after sering a movie at the Kips Bay theater, this place works."
Dined on 11/9/2013
Food is good we had a very
efficient and attentive waiter. They also have some very good deals, early dining discounts and an occasional Amazon Local deal."
Dined on 11/8/2013
WE LIKE FOOD. NICE PRICE FOR HAPPY
HOUR. MY ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THEY COULD SERVE A MUCH BETTER WINE FOR HH. MY GROUP AND I ALL DRINK WINE."
Dined on 9/5/2013
We were disappointed with the
preparation of our dishes. Each course was somewhere in quality between a cafeteria and a restaurant. We went there because of the positive revues hoping that this bar could also deliver good food. No. It was the quality you would expect from TGIF. Too bad. We won't be going back. Our waiter, however, was excellent."
Dined on 8/20/2013
Met friends and was very
disappointed with food, which seems to be going downhill at Benjamin. Food wasn't good, it wasn't bad-- just mediocre. Safest bet was meatloaf-- our scallops and duck dishes were just so-so. We'll look for somewhere else to meet."

I Invited A Friend Out For Dinner
So We Could Talk And Get A Little Closer. As We Entered The Restaurant, We Were Greeted By A Man Who Smelled So Bad! He Stunk Up The Entire Place! I Was Sooooo Embarrassed Because This Was My Friend's First Time There! Mr. Stinky Sat Us To Our Table And Thank God He Never Came Back! Hygiene Is Very Imortant! Especially When You Work In A Restaurant Near Food! We Asked For A Pitcher With Ice And Water And We Were Told Your Restaurant Has Only 2 And Couldn't Give Us One! WOW!!!!!!"

The food was delicious! I had the
shrimp noodles with butter, garlic and wine sauce. Best i've ever tasted."
Dined on 7/27/2013
Great neighborhood gem. Perfect
for when you are you to movies across the street. Try the pork chops."
Dined on 6/15/2013
The food was mediocre; edible, but
not terrific. Our server was attentive. But I arrived earlier than my 2 luncheon partners. The restaurant was not crowded. I asked the manager if he had a table in the enclosed porch. He apologized that he didn't, so I settled for a table in a dark part of the restaurant. By the time our 2nd party arrived, we realized the restaurant was nearly empty, so we asked to be seated in the enclosed porch, where it was much lighter and brighter and more pleasant, in general."

This place is solid and continues
to deliver good food with good service."

Reliable, consistent neighborhood
dining. Excellent service, comfortable seating, varied menu with excellent daily specials."

Good place for a large group. Food
was good and very affordable."
Dined on 4/26/2013
Our waitress (Melissa?) is always
very good and especially helpful with my meal orders in regards to my varied food allergies. Likewise, the rest of the wait-staff has also been very helpful in that regard, which makes me return frequently with friends and family since I know I'll be served a safe yet flavorful and satisfying meal."
Dined on 3/21/2013
We went there for brunch/lunch. My
fritatta was very tasty but greasy as were the potatoes. Coffee was watery. My husband's cobb salad did not have much lettuce and the french fries were greasy/cold - clearly warmed over from night before. The service was non-existent - except for one time, we had to call waiter over for everything..."

it's an ok neighborhood restaurant
with lots of early bird specials and discounts. not worth a trip if you are not in the neighborhood."
Dined on 3/13/2013
Two of us got two apps and two
entrees. For apps, mussels were succulent and decent-size and cesar salad was decent. The dry-aged steak was cooked to order, but the ahi tuna steak was over-cooked (ordered medium but received almost well-done). The dessert brownie ice cream sundae recommended by the waiter was tooth-achingly sweet. The service was very attentive. Overall, a so-so experience although we'd had better at this place."
