    Have dined here 4 or 5 times and have always found everything from food to service, terrific. We started with one piece of bacon and one order of tomato & mozzarella, and shared. More than enough for 2. Instead of a steak, I tried the rack of lamb this time. 5 nicely sized and perfectly prepared chops, tender, juicy, really delicious. It's a pricey entree but worth every penny. Creamed spinach and baked potato both fine. No interest in dessert, but the cappuccino was served hot, as it should be but somehow often isn't. Best place for steak (or lamb!) in Westchester.

    The prices are "special occasion", the food is good, the steak excellent. The service was great. The ambience is a bit stuffy and quiet early in the evening, a lot of leather and 90's steakhouse sort of touches. Otherwise, a nice place for a good steak, as good as Morton's, Ruth's Chris etc. business lunch/dinners would be perfect.

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    When i made the reservation, I noted that it was a birthday dinner for my husband's 72st. Was pleasantly surprised when, at the end of our meal, 3 waiters came singing "Happy Birthday" and bearing a slice of chocolate cake with a candle! Nice touch!!! I would have given it 'Outstanding' but it was very noisy, even though we were tucked in a corner. Service was excellent with one comment: my husband ordered the lamb chops and a side of creamed spinach. Our waiter should have told him that the lamb chops come served over sauteed spinach with garlic! Husband would have ordered a different side.

    Good steaks, nice atmosphere. Priced as expected for a steak house. Broad, interesting choice in salads and vegetables, but made the mistake of ordering "home fries" which were just potato chips! Only complaint is that although steak filet was good quality and cooked as requested (med. rare) it had NO exterior signs of it cooking.. Tasted great, but all 3 steaks just looked gray on the outside (no char, no sear marks, no nothing!) Not very appealing on the plate... Service was excellant!

    We visited this restaurant after a NY Yankkes game. It is easy to get to if you are heading to Upstate NY. The menu is the sane as the Benjamin in NYC, so the steaks and chops are fantastic. We started dinner with salads (two wedge and one mesclun) and they were fresh and crispy. They were able to customize the salads to our particular liking. The steaks (NY strip and a rib steak) were done to our liking and the side dishes were plenty big to share. The veal chop was big and tender. We sat out on their patio because the weather was perfect - not too hot and low humidity. We were happy they suggested we try it. It was a memorable evening after a baseball game.

    We sat outside on a warm summer evening. The service was just as good outside as it is inside. The steaks at Benjamin are superb (ask for no butter on the meat if you don't want to overindulge!). Quality comes at a price , but at Benjamin Steakhouse, it just seems worth it!

    Dined on 6/14/2014
    Our family went to Benjamin's for Mother's Day and the menu had a pre-fix. Being that we went the night before Father's Day, I expected a pre-fix menu. That was my mistake. I felt it was expensive even though the food was excellent. So if you are concerned a little about the bill, perhaps you should ask ahead of time.

    Decided to try new place on Sat night. Read the reviews and it sounded OK but lots of comments about food and service. They were all right. Steak was so salty it was not edible. Service was rude and arrogant. Bread came and it was as hard as a rock. I could not even cut it with a knife. For these prices I would go to Mortons.

    Food was good, presentation of food ok - example ordered the shrimp cocktail and it was just on a plate - you are paying $20 for 3 shrimp cocktail - maybe spruce it up a bit!! service was ok - our waiter was not overly attentive. I was expecting better service, better presentation of food for the amount of money we spent. And my steak was under cooked!

  • Unsatisfying Birthday Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/23/2014
    Waited over ten minutes to place drink order after being seated. Asked waiter about 2 wines and he said "I have no idea, try it". They did not have the first wine we selected so the waiter came back over and said he "went ahead and ordered the other one". Wine was spilled over the glass and on the table while being poured. Crab cakes were tastey. Ordered steak for 2 medium, came out charred black on over 75% of steak. Creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were excellent though. Ordered apple strudel which also came out burned on the bottom and edges. Twice during dinner three waiters gathered near our table on the side of the restaurant and had a loud, heated argument about tables. Found the staff unprofessional and food sub par.

    The steaks were exceptional! They also have fantastic appetizers. The crab cakes are the best I've ever had and my wife said she could go back just for the Lobster Bisque. The potatoes were average at best, we've had the baked potato, the Benjamin potatoes and the cottage fries. All lacked the quality to live up to the steaks and the incredible Wait Staff. I highly recommend Benjamin for a special evening of dining.

    We were seated in the section near the bar with TVs showing basketball games. Lighting was quite dark, which emphasized the light from the TVs. I'd say it was quite noisy, it was difficult to hear our conversation. Ordered from the Restaurant Week menu: bowl! of lobster bisque & salad (both good), salmon portion seemed small but was enough for my dinner companion and he said it was good. My steak was good, cooked perfectly medium rare which many restaurants get wrong. It was not overly salty and portion was fine, I took some home. Maybe things were different because it was restaurant week. Maybe we were tired. Was our first time here, we are glad we ate here, food was good, just wasn't wowed.

    Tables were nicely spaced and waiters were attentive; the room was pleasant but overall nondescript. My steak was good but not exceptional; same for the salmon entree. The best part of the meal was the lobster bisque. It was thick but not too thick; very flavorable and did include bits of lobster. Would definitely order that again if I ever went back. Wine by the glass was just ok.

    If you want a great steak without having to go all the way to New York City, Benjamin's is the place to go! The quality of the food is consistently excellent; the waiters couldn't be more attentive; and the ambience is delightful. You are well taken care of from the moment that you arrive. Located off the Sprain Pkwy, #287 or Central Avenue, this restaurant is very easy to reach coming from almost anywhere in Westchester County, and well worth the trip. Visit Benjamin's Steakhouse for an evening out. You won't be disappointed.
