Diner Reviews
  • "High end staff. Steaks over priced for what you get. Great steaks avail at many other restaurants."

  • "Chose Benny's based on high reviews. They were right! Dry aged steak and grouper with risotto were outstanding as were the wined by the glass. Our servers were welcoming, making us feel at home. Expensive, yes, but worth it for a special occasion."

  • "I totally enjoyed my dining experience at Benny's Chop House. Our server, Nicole, was outstanding. The food was wonderful from the wedge salad and filet through to the scrumptious dessert of strawberry rhubarb pie. Try it - you'll really like it."

  • "Up front it is not inexpensive. But it has great value. The waiters are very very knowledgable, you would be well taken care fore if you listen to their suggestions. The dinner was excellent , the wine paring was spot on. All the staff are professionals and the waitress we had was charming. Thank-you for a wonderful experience."

  • "We went there to celebrate our anniversary. The hostess was rude. We were seated at an extremely small table to avoid the larger table in a high traffic area. My husband's filet was tough. My lobster was undercooked and the staff did not seem to care. We love to visit downtown once a year. We usually go to Ruth Chris, Gibsons, Mortons. Feel so bad knowing we could have gone somewhere else and enjoyed a great dinner."

  • "Went with co-workers. Food was excellent. Popular choice was the dry aged bone in rib-eye. Side dishes like the Hash browns can easily feed 2 people. Steak was excellently prepared and cooked. Our server had the chef prepare an extra 1/2 order of hash browns because the wait-staff accidentally through mine out."

  • "The bread was a bit stale and simple. The food and wine was overpriced. The decor was a bit dated. But that's part of an old steakhouse to some extent, right? The steaks were good - not the best in Chicago by far but good. The server was very good - attentive, friendly, helpful. We were generally disappointed but it wasn't bad."

  • "Great food great time. I've been to all the top steakhouses in Chicago and this was by far the best one I've eaten at. My only gripe is they were out of the appetizer we ordered which they made up for by giving us another appetizer of our choice on the house. It was a very pleasant evening."

  • "My wife and I chose Benny's to celebrate our anniversary dinner. It was outstanding choice in every aspect-service, food quality and atmosphere. We started with an assortment of oysters. For dinner, my wife ordered the surf and turf consisting of a filet and lobster tail-both were delicious. I had the pork chop which was also outstanding. For sides we had the hash browns, mushrooms and maple bacon. Each dish was among the finest side dishes we've had. We had a strawberry rhubarb "pie" which had a flaky crust similar to a cream puff. Accompanied by a raspberry sorbet the desert was excellent. Based on the combination of service, food quality and atmosphere, Benny's is at the top of our list of steakhouses."

  • "We decided to eat at Benny's Chop House after reading their great Tripadvisor reviews and because it was close to our hotel. We were not disappointed. The service is impeccable and our waiter Nick was so friendly and not 'in-your-face'. I ordered the 8oz filet mignon and it was to die for. My fiancé ordered the rib eye and he was very happy with it. We ordered the truffle fries and carrots as sides and got a third side of peas on the house! We even had a little room for dessert thankfully, although we only got one to share."

  • "Had the best time at Benny's. Went to a few other steak places in Chicago and Benny's was the best steak house as well as service! Will definitely come back due to the great experience!"

  • "The steak was exactly as I anticipated.....Fantastic!! I had the dry-aged Bone-In Ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. The flavor was outstanding and worth every penny. Our waiter, Nick, was hands-down one of the best servers we've ever had. Very energetic about the food, very helpful in suggesting apps. and dessert. He made the experience truly a memorable one."

  • "The food was great and offered whatever we wanted. This is no ordinary place. Food was customized to exactly what we wanted. Nick's service was like no other I've experienced. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Server was very personal and helpful without being too intrusive. My steak (NY strip rare) steak was cooked perfectly. The server even offered an option between medium rare and rare - a "rare plus". The sides were delicious as well - mashed potatoes were fluffy without being overly buttery and the mushrooms were salted very well. Many steakhouses have sides that are quite rich (super creamy mashed potatoes, creamed spinach) and are very good by themselves, but are too heavy when served alongside steak. I will be coming back to this establishment."

  • "Reserved a table for dinner after Motown matinee. Extremely knowledgeable waiter explained extensive wine list and unique menu options. He definitely contributed to our memorable dining experience at Benny's! Appetizers (crab cake, oysters) quite tasty and well-presented. Entrees (filet, lobster risotto, rib-eye, and red grouper) prepared exactly as we requested, and each salad was enough for two! The Texas-sized baked potatoes came with a lazy Susan of toppings, and the bobbly bread basket was as fun to use as it was delicious! The piece de resistance, the S'mores pie, drew us to this spot originally, and it did not disappoint. From its creative presentation to the multiple flavors developed, it was the star of the evening. Bravo!"

  • "Best steak (and meal) I've had in the city in a long time - better than Mastros, Gibsons, Chop House, etc. Really surprised at how good all of the food was. Desserts were out of this world. I assumed the steak all the top streakhouses were the same but have found the new winner. Great service and wines, too."

  • "The best part of the meal was the steak itself. All six guests ordered a different cut and they were all absolutely delicious. I had the lip on ribeye and the lip really give a rich flavor to the beef. The lobster bisque was just ok and the server screwed up all our side dishes. She corrected her mistakes but we had to wait until we were halfway done with our food before getting side dishes. Also, they are trying to stuff way to many tables in that dining room and I could not hear what people were saying at my own table due to noise. And my cocktail (the cross town classic) was disappointing."

  • "From the start we were greeted by Mitchell who shared with us the herb garden that flanked the front door. We were seated immediately and were greeted by our server Irwin. We were made to feel as if we were long time customers. Every person we met during the course of our meal excelled. Highly highly ( did I say highly ) recommended for any occasion. Just get there!"

  • "Our previous experience with Benny's has been outstanding. This time was disappointing from the start. The wait staff assigned to us were busy and distracted. We were seated and given all the menus then waited 20 minutes before we could order drinks. The waitress struck a nerve with me when she called me "young lady." I'm 63, come on! After being served, we did not see our server for quite a while so we could not tell her my husband did not like his food. My husband ordered grouper which was a mistake because we all know not to order seafood in a steakhouse. To the server and restaurant's credit, they did try to make amends. Appreciated but we would have preferred good food and service."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Based on independent local food critics, Benny's rates about 3rd on the list of the great steakhouses in Chicago. A glass of club soda, a dry aged "16oz" ribeye, a side salad and a baked potato cost me over $100 with a moderate tip. For this rating and price, I expect exceptional. The dry aged ribeye was just OK. It was not thick cut and tended to be dry in the center. The pre-cooked weight was likely under 16oz. The baked potato was under-cooked and only warm when it arrived at my table. I have had much better at many other restaurants for far less money. Morton's and The Capital Grill come to mind and there are others that could meet the quality easily. Go here for a nice group experience if you can afford it, but not for the food."

  • "In a city with a number of fine restaurants and steak houses, Benny's gets high marks. The pate' starter was wonderful!. The seafood tower was what one would expect & it consisted of large (collosal?) shrimp, a full lobster, & Alaskan crab. However, it seemed over priced. The steaks were delicious. Sides were ala carte, and they too were very tasty & served family style. The rich wood atmosphere was enjoyable, but the noise level was on the high side until tables began to clear. All in all, the service was excellent, & it was an enjoyable experience, although the prices are expensive. However, on a Tuesday evening the restaurant was filled."

  • "My wife and I had a great experience as Benny's! We started off with the carb cake and bacon. DELICIOUS! Our main course was Benny's 7 oz. filet and 16 oz bone in ribeye. Cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. Our sides were the lobster mac n cheese and mushrooms. Great compliments to our steaks. For dessert we ordered the banana creme pie and chocalte pudding with almond ice cream. We had a great experience. We are definitely going to make it back! Thanks Benny's!"

  • "We enjoyed Benny's with another couple as we celebrated our anniversary. Steaks were all great and cooked to order. Good wine but it took us a while to find a good one at a reasonable price. Service was excellent and well-timed. We did not feel rushed. Only negative was that it was very noisy."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I chose Benny's as my husband is doing the low-carb thing and we needed to try a different steakhouse than our usual haunts. Every course we had was excellent- highly recommend the grilled Caesar, Wagyu filet, and the blue cheese croquettes were amazing (too bad I had to eat them alone!) Looking forward to going back soon."

  • "Took an important client from overseas here for lunch - he'd requested another steak place we couldn't get into. My assistant scrambled to book, and had found a Chicago mag ranking of steakhouses - Bennys was actually above Mortons. All I can say is that that writer must've padded their bank acct w/ a kickback from Benny's. Great staff, but there was no one (zero) people in there, a bit embarassing, and the menu was shockingly limited. The food was OK."

  • "Reading many reviews I opted to go to Benny's Chop House and it was worth every penny! The meat was fantastic (Surf and Turf and Strip 16 oz) and the condiments fab! The service was also friendly and knew when to approach the table or not. Well done! Overall, a great place to enjoy great steaksa and wine!"

  • "We were staying at Embassy Suites, and I asked the concierge for recommendations for a great steak nearby. He recommended Benny's and after checking with Trip Advisor, who confirmed the selection, we made our reservations. The experience was everything we had hoped for. The food was excellent, the service was top notch and we had a wonderful evening!"

  • "Had a great meal at Benny's. The dry-aged bone in ribeye was superb, as well as the sides. Service was attentive, and frequent - a little too "advisory" for me, but all advice taken turned out to be validated. Atmosphere is classic Chicago Steakhouse, really good place for a business dinner - active room, but not too loud."
