Diner Reviews
  • "Benjamin Steakhouse continues to be our favorite restaurant, period. Always great food and Superb service."

  • "I made my reservations online with OpenTable and based on the reviews I saw, I requested a table upstairs on the rail. I highly recommend that seating choice! Our server, Genci, was totally awesome and very helpful. I was totally impressed with the suggestions and the choices that we made with him. The wine selection was fantastic! The Crabmeat cocktail was perfect, the Porterhouse for Two was amazing and the Creamed Spinach was delicious!!! Excellent choice, excellent food and excellent service!"

  • "As far as steakhouses go, this one offers great food and a fantastic atmosphere. Our experience was tarnished however by our very rude treatment by our waiter. Obviously concerned about "upselling" us, he was visibly irritated when we did not want the additional items he suggested ( potatoes, more wine, dessert). This guy definitely needs some more customer service training. In a city like New York, where there are thousands of restaurants to choose from, poor service is unacceptable and inexcusable."

  • "Everything was execellent - the food and the service. The restaurant is loud, so I wouldn't go there for a quiet evening. It is a great place to go with a group of friends."

  • "Terrific, well-prepared steak and customary side dishes with attentive, thoughtful service. An attractive setting in a hotel dining room, but with a high noise level and tightly spaced seating. Prices are not for the faint of heart, but the quality of the food and service are top notch. A good choice for those once a year splurges."

  • "Always great food and steaks... Entertained a client and he enjoyed it, even though he only ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. I had the ribeye and loved every bite. Great spot, good food and wavering service"

  • "We enjoyed our meal at Benjamin Steakhouse. Our steaks were wonderful. However, my wedge salad dressing tasted mostly creamy, not like a real blue cheese dressing. Also, the cottage fries were not very good. They tasted like flavorless, thick and hard potato chips ."

  • "I had the rib-eye "Pittsburgh'd" medium-rare and it was excellent as were the lump crabmeat and Bejamins Salad. The sides of creamed spinach and sautéed mushrooms were prepared well too. Pecan pie is highly recommended. If you want a little privacy, ask for a 2-top upstairs along the guard rail. Great view of restaurant and easier to converse. Great service with 4 or 5 people. They do it right! Zagat does not lie. Enjoy!"

  • "This was my second visit to Benjamin's and their steak is the best I've ever had! My husband and I ordered the steak for two and the Benjamin's salad. The salad had lump crab meat and the dressing was delicious. The steak came with filet and ribeye pieces and we could not finish it. I'll definetly be back next time I visit the city."

  • "Came in late on a Thursday night, after a short wait (the restaurant was packed even at 9:00 pm with more coming in after we left). The food was perfect, the service excellent, looking forward to coming back."

  • "As always, excellent food well-served. Pretty good martinis. Very fresh littlenecks. The steaks are worth coming to New York. The ambience of the old American Chemist's Club meeting room brings in the tie to old New York of early in the last century. A place I bring friends, family and business associates to give them an authentic New York experience."

  • "I've been to Benjamin Steakhouse many times, but took my wife for the first time last night. From the moment she entered, she felt like a VIP - that's just the way they treat their guests. The manager Nick was amazing the way he made his way from table to table, making everyone feel special. The food was spot-on as always delivering fresh tasting, quality food. We split the tomato, bacon and onions with blue cheese to start, then moved on to steak for two with hash browns and mushrooms. Waiters were buzzing around as always to clear your plates, fill your water and attend to your every need. That said, we never felt rushed. Benjamin continues to deliver an impressive dining experience whether you're out with your spouse or hosting clients."

  • "This is a steakhouse … no ifs, ands, or buts. And, it is a very, very good one. Given the choice of all the N.Y.C. steakhouses, I truly recommend the Benjamin. Not as well-known as its competitors, and not on a main thoroughfare (it is on 41st Street, off Madison Avenue), the Benjamin attracts a crown of knowledgeable carnivores. The service is outstanding, and attentive; their advice should be taken on choices of entrées. The food is plentiful and it is great-tasting. The wine list is extensive (but also has some very good buys). I heartily recommend the Benjamin Steakhouse."

  • "The menu is focused on the steak, as it should be, that is what you come here for. The staff is excellent, they are on-point and taking care of your needs during the entire dining experience. The restaurant is energetic and busy but at our table of 5, we could all hear and enjoy the dinner. We had steak for 4 plus a large rib-eye for the 5th person - fantastic. The sides were typical steakhouse fare, nothing spectacular."

  • "Had been here before and thought all round was terrific. This time we were sat in the upstairs balcony and the noise level was over the top, making it difficult to enjoy the food. Baby's to the left of us and tourists to the right, we felt as if we'd mistakenly stepped into a circus, albeit one that served terrific steak. The creamed spinach was a mush. I've had it before at Keen's and Lugers and know what to expect, but this was barely recognizable as food."

  • "We went for a colleagues retirement dinner. We had an excellent steak once again, never disappoints."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "The person who greeted us at the front desk and who took our order was the maitre d or manager. i wasn't sure. he was very curt and extremely unpleasant. he did not make us feel welcome at all. it was as if we were intruding on his free time. The waiter who served our food seemed to be a pleasant fellow. The food itself was excellent though a bit overpriced. (expected for NYC). They were also cleaning the mirrors and wood paneling around us which certainly raises the dust level. They could have found a more opportune time to do this other than when customers are in the restaurant."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This well established consistently fabulous steakhouse Produces the finest steaks in New York. Service Is exemplary and then there's the steak. Did I mention the steak. Must try as this one will have you Dreaming about the next meal here. Cannot imagine How a steak could be any tastier. This place gets it Spot on!!"

  • "Outstanding food and service. Four of our group of five had not been here and found the restaurant outstanding."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Just go to another steakhouse - the food is decent here but the service rude and unprofessional - we were asked to leave since we were on the top floor and they wanted to close up but it was barely past 11 and they sat us there at 9PM. This is NY city on a saturday night!! Maybe thats why they had so few tables so "early" - the word is getting out that you can get just as good of a steak elsewhere and not be treated crappy! Striphouse, Spikes, Quality meats, S+W, - too many options to spend 500 on dinner for 4 where the service is pleasant and you can finish the evening in peace!!1"

  • "Best steaks ever and the staff are excellent. Very good service on both my visits-one night extremely busy and the other was slow due to Super Bowl but both times it was perfect. Will visit again when in NYC Or visit NYC so I can visit Benjamin's."

  • "We went here during our visit from the UK, the food was great albeit a little bit on the expensive side, however the service was pitiful, $125 for a bottle of wine that you then have to pour yourself and a maître de that just took care of his friends, please don't waste your money here!!!"

  • "If you like great steak, you will enjoy Benjamin's Steakhouse. Food was excellent! The Mrs. enjoyed the wine as well, and even got uncharacteristically tipsy. Only issue was the delay in getting seated, despite having dinner reservations. However, it was Valentine's Day so I have to give them a pass. They also apologized frequently for the wait. Highly recommend Benjamins!"

  • "One of the best steaks that I have ever eaten, and the service was as good as any I have had in my travels. The waiter was not only pleasant, he was very knowledgeable about the wine list (and not only the high end part). My wife and I had not just a wonderful meal, but a wonderful experience. We will be back."
