I had been recommended this venue and would do he same myself. Outstanding!!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFilet to die for...We chose Benjamin Steakhouse while on vacation to NYC for the awesome reviews we read, but we were still a bit skeptical at first. Our fears were unfounded, as this place more than lived up to its reputation! Great service, excellent filet and the best sides we've had at a restuarant in a long time. The Benjamin potatos are not to be missed. HIghly recommended!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIconicWhen You are looking for an incredible steak experience, this is the place. The food is outstanding- must do the bacon and the Porterhouse. Its an unforgettable meal, attentive and pleasant service, a stress-free environment, whats not to love?6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Tight AccomodationsThe food and service was great. There were just three of us and the dining recommendations from the staff were spot-on. The tables upstairs were really tight and there was an obnoxiously loud group of 20 on the other side of us which detracted from our experience. if it weren't for them we'd have stayed for dessert.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMdefinitely a great placeThe food and wine was really good ! Highly recommend this out of the way midtown steakhouse.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak in townWe visited Benjamin end of May 2013. It was an overall great experience. My wife and I chose the Steak for Two, which was the right decission. You'll get an Porterhouse cut, dryaged and perfectly grilled. As side dishes we chose Benjamins House Fries and spinach - both really tasteful.
Our overall experience was absolutely great and it was a really nice evening - perfect food, great service, nice atmosphere. OK, prices are quite high, but it was definitely worth it.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial setting, great foodSpecial setting, great food and very good service made the celebration on my daughter's graduation very memorable.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experience overallWait staff was excellent, food was superb.

Service was nothing more than average. We ordered a filet and a porterhouse, theFood was between very good and excellent, portions were very generous. The room was very nice, I found the noise level to be a little bit too high if you want a quiet, romantic dinner.
With New York offering so many great choices for a steakhouse restaurant, I will try some of the others before rushing back. Overall, I would recommend giving it a try.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steak!I sent twice in one week, ne cause the first experience was great, and second one the same!
The cost of a dinner is with steak, side order, one beer,taxes, and service(20% in the check!) was 67 dollars.

Sandy Pitofsky5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOVERALLThe steak was cooked perfect and was very tasty, the service was excellent and our dinner was out very quick.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMReservationsThe bar at the resturant is very small. It seems the resturant has a policy to make you wait in the bar regardless of your reservation time. We had to wait 30 minutes after our 7:30 PM reservation to be seated.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice ambiance,for meVery nice ambiance,for me the best Steaks we know.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe totally enjoyed our eveningWe totally enjoyed our evening at Benjamin. It was a Saturday night so the place was packed but we did not find the noise overwhelming. We had no trouble carrying on a conversation between the two of us. Tables were close but not as close as many other NYC restaurants we've been to. I had a filet mignon which was cooked perfrectly and one of the best I've had. My wife has a 3 lb lobster which was also excellent. We had a Benjamin salad which had ample very large blue crab lump meat in it. I also had the sizzling canadian bacon which was delicious and (almost) too much for one person. The wine list had great choices with many very affordable and also some "slect" choices which were much more expensiuve. Overall, a great meal.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodConsistent. Delicious. Attention to detail. Very satisfied.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a veryMy husband and I had a very enjoyable time. We were seated promptly upon arrival eventhough we arrived 15 mins early.
My husband had the steak and I had the Chilean Sea Bass. Both were excellent. The portions were not too large. The side orders were just right for one we thought although the waiter said sufficient for two people.
If we have an opportunity we will go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall food and servie areOverall food and servie are good. A little be burned outside steak. Too bad we had too much steak and no room for desert.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak!Great steak and excellent service. The food came just 10 minutes after ordering. It was a great steak and plenty for the whole family of 5. We just ordered the steak for 3. Attentive staff and they even noticed, that we celebrated a birthday.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommended for AllI typically visit the restaurant with colleagues for work events and the atmosphere is great. However, I would personally visit on my own with friends or recommend for a date as well. The food and service is great.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my boyfriend here forI took my boyfriend here for his birthday and there were at least six other birthdays going on--it's that kind of place. The crowd was pretty diverse--casually dressed tourists, retirees, upper east siders, 20- and 30-somethings, it ran the gamut. It is on the pricier side but considering the amount and high quality of food you are getting, plus the above average service, it's pretty worth it. I had an excellent filet mignon, and the cut was much larger than I expected, and my boyfriend got the ribeye and it was superb--I'll order it next time. He doesn't drink, so I got a 1/2 bottle for myself, and it yielded 3 glasses for what I'd have otherwise paid for two. Our server recommended the bourbon pie for dessert, and we both loved it.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh energy Steakhouse.Staff was great. We arrived earlier than our reservations with our 7 year old son and were worked into schedule with just a short wait. Food was great. Fun place. Lots of energy. Will return.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA must do for great steak in NYC!Just an awesome place. I am here with business colleagues, customers and friends often and it never dissapoints.

Food was great, Service was wonderful as always.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steak for two was outThe steak for two was out of this world. Favorite steakhouse in NYC.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe made a reservation in advancedWe made a reservation in advanced but, by the time we arrived we were told we had to wait to get a table. This was the second time we had to wait a while. First time, we waited an hour (had a reservation at 9 and waited until 10 pm) this time we waited 30 minutes.
Service and food was fine.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fabulous time atWe had a fabulous time at Benjamin's and would go back in a heartbeat for a special occasion. We were treated with respect and deference - as if we were guests in a home. The service was impeccable. The food was outstanding.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here, but wouldFirst time here, but would definitely come back. Wanted a steakhouse to take a client out for dinner who was in NYC and selected Benjamin's after some research online. Had a 7pm reservation on a Wed.- the restaurant was mostly full and we were seated on time. I ordered the Ribeye - it was outstanding and I'm picky when it comes to steaks, especially $46 steaks. Don't know the exact size, but am guessing at least 22oz to 24oz on the bone, cooked perfect medium-rare, great flavor, served hot. My guest had the double cut veal chop which was huge and was told it was also very good. We shared onion rings (large size, very good) and a vegetable. Didn't have any appetizers or dessert (was too full), so can't comment on them. Worth a visit!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst trip to an 'authentic'First trip to an 'authentic' NY steakhouse, Benjamin's did not disappoint! Recommended by our concierge, who clearly knew his stuff! Excellent server who made superb recommendations!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steakhouse in NYCI have had great steaks at many NYC steakhouses but the overall experience at Benjamins from the ambiance to the service and of course the food, it is hands down my favorite steakhouse to visit. Love this place.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThis is an amazing dining experience!!! Have been here casual and romantic , both experiences outstanding!!!!! The food is amazing, the staff is awesome and the ambiance is great! Was a repeat customer of Smith and Wollensky but they have fallen and Benjamin now is the place to go for a phenomenal steak or lamb chops!!!! The only critique I have is maybe a larger selection of oysters, other than than that AMAZING!!!1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
