  • "A lot of folks have never heard of Benny's and I don't know why. Everything from shrimp, to salad, to the steaks was great. Among the best steakhouses in the city and will continue to go back."

  • "First time dining here- even though a slower Monday night- the food and service were excellent. The staff was pleasant, eager and energetic - don't let the oversized plates fool you- the portions are perfect and the sides aren't overwhelming. Steaks were cooked to perfection- I'll definitely return."

  • "Our family of 4 enjoyed Benny's on 4/12/2014. The food and service are nothing short of excellent. We return to Chicago at least annually, and this is going on our list of go-to restaurants. Friendly, attentive service, great steaks and sides. Not inexpensive, but a treat on every level. Definitely upscale. A little noisy, but nothing that detracts from the occasion. Go, by all means!"

  • "Wonderful ambiance with an unobtrusive but excellent pianist, a very well put together beer and wine list, and excellent food. The Maple Glazed House Cured Bacon was amazing and the Filet literally melts in your mouth. Yes, it was pricey but it is well worth the price and a great location in the middle of Magnificent Mile. I also appreciate the bar area showing the Miami Heat/Indiana Pacers game and not being so pretentious that they are above showing sports. Class restaurant."

  • "We went to Benny's for a traditional Chicago steakhouse meal and we were not disappointed. Everything from the house prepared maple glazed bacon to the dry aged steak to the s'mores cheesecake dessert was incredible. The dry aged steak was cooked to perfection and was amazing. The service was also impeccable. Benny's will be forever on our list of special occasion restaurants."

  • "A friend of mine, my wife and me started a 'steak of the month club' to dine out and compare the best steak in the Chicago-land area and have unanimously voted Benny's as #1 after three years of testing our taste buds!!!"

  • "Me and my girlfriend went to Benny's to celebrate a special ocassion. Neither one of us had been there before, but we'll definately be going back. The food was sensational as well as the service."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "While the food was really good, the service is a bit slow. If your looking for a quite evening, this is not the place to go. There were five of us and we practically had to yell at each other to hear. That being said, it was an enjoyable experience with wonderful food and great wine."

  • "Went there to celebrate my father's 68ish birthday. Benny's did not disappoint. We had our 7 & 9 yrold with us. Some times at a nicer restaurant on Saturday night with young kids you feel a little rushed to move in and out as quick as possible. This was not the case with Benny's they treated the kids very well. Our food was outstanding. Services was great. Had slight delay in a drink order that our server forgot and he made up by not charging us for it. Awesome evening all around."

  • "We went to the Garden Show and let me younger daughter pick the restaurant. She loves steak and we looked up on line the best steak restaurants in Chicago. This was rated 4.5 out of 5. We had been to the other steak restaurants so we gave this a try. Very good choice. The food and view were great. We had a salad, steak's, and 2 very good desserts. Our steaks were excellent! Is this the best steak restaurant....not sure about that however it was very very good and we will be returning. Equally as good were the desserts....bananna cream pie and a child's brownie sundae. I would recommend this place and will be going back! We found out that this is the same owner that owns Volare ...which we love!!!"

  • "As always the service and food at Benny's Chop House is outstanding. We started with the Oysters Rockefeller (Benny's always has the best oysters of any Chicago restaurant) and the Calamari which were both outstanding. For my entrée, I choose the Salmon which was accompanied with spatzle and butternut squash. GENIUS ! My husband who was really looking for something a little lighter chose a salad and bowl of Manhattan clam chowder. Since he did have a light meal we ordered dessert, which for us is rare. If you have never tried their S’mores Cheese Cake (by all means do) milk chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallow which is presented beautifully, but doesn’t last long because it is so amazing. I’ll order again but not for sharing."

  • "Food is exceptional. Service is superb yet not intrusive. The desserts are well worth a try. I would definitely be a repeat customer. This restaurant has something for everybody ."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Food: not worth the price, but not bad. Ordered a manhattan before dinner which was 1/2 the size of the manhattan we'd enjoyed earlier in the week at Volare's (same owner, and the restaurant is two blocks away), but naturally these were more expensive and served in a tiny 1950s style champagne glass. Where's the beef? That is what every one else ordered, but I wanted fish. Our server misrepresented and swallowed (ahem) the price of the special, a small piece of sole, no sides.? could we afford it? Yes, but it was the subversion that left a very bad taste in my mouth. The next time we go to a steak house, it won't be Benny's."

  • "Went to del friscos the day before and it killed Benny's. The somm helped me select a wine but never checked to see if we liked it. The choice was a wine that was 5 yrs past its prime but still set me back $200. The appetizer was great. The steak was good. The salad and sides were okay at best. I used to love this place but I think that so many other restaurants have upped their fe that they are falling behind."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "What more can I say than the best steaks my wife and I have every had! Plus a fantastic wine list with help and advice around the choice of wine to have with our chosen courses Service level wow the best we have had in Chicago during our trip. I have no hesitation recommending Benny's Chop House"

  • "My husband and I went there for dinner and it was excellent. The customer service is outstanding and can't forget the steaks too. They were amazing! I had the 7oz filet, with shrimp and bacon and my husband had a new york strip. My only complaint is that it was hard to hear each other and we were placed next to people that were right on top of us. However, that wouldn't stop us from going back again. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a good meal. We each had steaks, an appetizer, two sides and a bottle of wine and our tab was about $240."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "All food items - cocktails, salads, steaks, sides, deserts - were outstanding! Waiter was excellent. Tables are just too darn close together! Staff were apologetic when bumping my chair, but they still bumped it a lot, because there are just too many tables jammed in there. Party of two should be OK, as you can sit away from the high-traffic area."

  • "Had surf and turf lobster tail and 8oz filet. The lobster was so tough I couldn't finish it. It was like chewing rubber, I just gave up. Don't waste your money on the crab mac and cheese, no crab in it and no flavor either. I'm not sure how you make cheese bland, but they managed to do so. Steak was very tender but again, no flavor. Best thing I had was the truffel fries and the African Nectur tea. I tore the tag from my teabag so that I could remember to order some online. Only positive thing I can say about this experience is at least I can check it off my list."

  • "We called the restaurant in the morning to see if the gift certificate we had received could be used on several occasions. We were told yes. As we were settling our bill, we were told that we could not use the gift certificate on multiple occasions. Bait and switch?? Or since this is a restaurant...bite and switch? The restaurant is attractive inside, the wait staff are very nicely dressed, TVs on the walls offered sports programs, the food was OK but that lie we were told definitely colored our total experience."

  • "This was my first experience at Benny's Chop House, and won't be our last. Our waitress was great. The wine list extensive and incredible. The sommelier very pleasant and made a perfect selection that our entire table enjoyed with rave reviews. At the end of the meal our waitress brought out a beautiful dessert for the birthday girl and it was almost too beautiful to eat, but we managed."

  • "Benny's is pricey, but definitely our favorite spot when we want to treat ourselves. My boyfriend and I both work in hospitality, and we are so impressed the quality service. The staff-to-guest ratio is unbelievable - I think we had 5 different people tend to us during dinner. Fantastic!"

  • "This was our first time at Benny's and we cannot believe it took us so long to get there! The food was excellent, the wait staff extremely professional and knowledgeable and each hostess was very pleasant, attentive and accommodating, After a long week at the office, I loved that the environment was quiet and without pretense and the wine list was very impressive. The food was outstanding and I would (and will) recommend it to others for certain!"

  • "This was my second time to Benny's. My husband and I had reservations at another restaurant that were cancelled, so we were scrambling to find a steakhouse with an opening on Saturday night. Enter Benny's. The ambiance is nice, warm, inviting. Our waiter was great and entertaining. Our food was good; we had the bay scallop appetizer and then my husband had the dry aged Ribeye, which was awesome and I had the 10oz "Natural" filet which was good. Both steaks were smaller than we anticipated and for the price, I would say there may be some better options out there. However, if you are in a bind and need a good steak last minute, I would recommend giving Benny's a shot."
