    It was a business lunch so we wanted to talk without all the ambient noise places enhance with their hard walls. Food was very good, and the service was great.

    I first experienced Benny's Chop House about three or four years ago and recommended from the hotel's concierge. I glad she did because it was a great choice. Rcently, during my last visit toe Chicago, I had dinner with friends and all was spectacular. Great steaks, gfeat appetizers and great wine list. Everything was very, very good. Planning to make a run for it again as soon as I come back to Chicago.

    The service was outstanding, the assistant Sommelier was very helpful and patient. Our food was fair, my wife's potatos were so cold I had to ask the server if they were supposed to be , when he said no, the replacement did not come until the end of the meal. Over all for the high price I would only rate it 3 stars.

    Dined on 11/16/2014
    My wife and I were from out of state and staying downtown and wanted a local restaurant. We chose Benny's Chop out a magazine located in our room as it was close to our hotel. The reservation was easy and the walk a few short blocks. What we found at Benny's was five stars from the service to the excellent food. The Chef prepared the food both in presentation and taste that made our palates explode. My wife and I smiled and enjoyed every part of our dining experience, a great gift as we have four children. Please give my highest regards to Benny's,our now favorite restaurant in Chicago!

    Variety of Steaks, Sauces and unique appetizers(bacon), and desserts set this apart from the rest. The natural fillet and dry aged rib eye melted in my mouth. Shared steaks and food was presented fantasticly Service and wait staff first rate. A must to dine here

    I have been to most of the major steakhouses in Chicago if not all. Nothing compares to this place. The steak was the best steak that my husband and I ever had. The service was off the charts. It is pricey so definitely a special occasion type of place. We will definitely be back!

    We cannot say enough about the Wagyu on the menu. Though expensive, it is TOTALLY worth it. The sommelier spent a bit of time with us helping to choose a great wine, and though our budget was modest, we ended up with a very good wine that held up great to the steak.

    My wife has a new favorite New York Strip and I have a new favorite Filet. We both had the Traditional Steaks but I am getting ahead of myself. From the greeting we received from the host & hostesses, the terrific bar scene, staff, piano player for a glass of Champaign before being seated. Then on to the comfortable booth with a fab view of all. Our waiter was beyond pleasant plus very informative, the help with the wine list was appreciated and the selection perfect. The menu had Happy 19th Anniversary Dana & Kathy printed on it was a great touch. If it sounds like we enjoyed our experience at Benny's Chop House....WE DID!

    I chose Bennys after scouring 'best of" steakhouses writeups as a dinner location for a special birthday celebrates. The pros - excellent service, a special menu for the birthday boy as well as a complementary dessert for him that was beautifully presented. Top notch service. My partner had the bone in ribeye and it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The cons - I had the special of a trio of 3 beef mediallions with black truffle sauce ordered "medium" and they were all well done. I didn't sent it back (my bad) since the rest of the evening was going swimmingly, but it was quite disappointing my $50 entree was so overdone. I would try it again and just order a regular steak next time. Maybe the special threw the chef off his game.

    This is a classic steakhouse with the finest grass-fed, dry-aged, or traditional cuts as well as quality seafood and a host of well-prepared and imaginative sides and salads. My wife had a special of fried green tomatoes with 4 sauces that was fantastic. Service is generally attentive and skilled, and the dining room is a celebration of dark wood and leather. They have an impressive wine list and knowledgeable and sincerely helpful sommeliers. There are great finds on the list that won't break the bank.

    I was in Chicago for PackExpo 2014, and had dinner at Benny's my last night in town. The food, wine, and service were all amazing! I had the 8oz filet which was delicious. The lobster macaroni and cheese is to die for. We had a wonderful time, and I would highly recommend a visit here if you are in Chicago.

We just arrived from the plain so we couldn't be really well dressed, the waiter proably tought that we were not able to pay our food....Not really friendly, not helpful... The steak was a liitle too cooked (we asked medium rare and we had mediumat least)....really disapointing ! But the hostesses were charming, welcoming and really noce with us.

    Was only in Chicago for a brief stay and wanted to go to one of Chicago's finest restaurants. Benny's has been around for a good while and has a track record of excellence. It was everything as advertised! I expected the staff to be professional and they were, but I also appreciated the personal time they spent with me and the care & concern shown starting from the minute I entered the restaurant until I headed back to my hotel.

    There is no doubt that Benny's is expensive, but you get what you pay for. The food was excellent. My wagyu filet was incredibly tender, simple sides like carrots and mashed potatoes were very tasty, and even my garden salad was done very well with light/tasty dressing and a good mix of greens and other veggies that I was invited to add. Everyone in our party raved about the food. The service was excellent, too. Our server got to know our group quickly and made excellent recommendations throughout the night. My husband also has a dairy allergy and this was accommodated easily. With drinks, salads, entrees, and dessert, we ended up paying about $150/person (before tip).

    We enjoyed our dinner there. Booking was an issue because of relatively short notice - 5 pm or 9 pm or later were the only choices, but that is to be expected for a popular restaurant. Excellent food, but bring your wallet!

    My wife chose Benny's for my birthday dinner. Got off to a nice start in the bar. Great music. Attentive bartender. Well made cocktails. But why serve martini in a coupe glass? It's a MARTINI. Use the martini glasses. Menu looked great. Looks can be deceiving. When you pay beaucoup bucks for that bone-in ribeye it should be cooked to perfection! Not cold and mealy. Sides were good, especially the crispy kale. But back to that ribeye. C'mon, this is a STEAKHOUSE. The steak should be the star. And when the manager comes over to check on the problem she should do at least two things: identify herself clearly as the manager and, do something about that cold, mealy steak! Not likely to be going back. Many better choices for a great steak.

    The location was great. Cocktails were really good. The wine list was pretty amazing really. Downsides were the steaks which were slightly over-done. I know we both had the 8oz fillets but the fact that they're small should be compensated by a commensurate reduction in cooking time to get med-rare rather than med. They were still sufficiently juicy though. Will certainly go back when in town.

    Restaurant was comfortable, food was fantastic, waiter was knowledgable and friendly. Maple bacon app was awesome, I had the aged ribeye and it was very succulent. Topped it off with Banana pie, which fantastic. Creme Brûlée was not the best i've had, was missing something. Waiter comp'd a marshmallow cheesecake thingee that was very memorable. Would love to come back for a special occasion. Downtown experience was pleasant, bill was reasonable for where we ate and for what we had. Will go back again.

    I've tried lots of steakhouses, and while Benny's is not my favorite, it was very good. The steak was (as it should be) the highlight of the meal. I am a creme brûlée fanatic, and theirs was excellent! A few missteps: the dining room was FREEZING. They kindly offered my mother and I pashminas, but we were still frozen. The maple bacon appetizer was terrible. It was charred on the outside, pure fat on the inside - and not in a good way. Lastly, their wine list was hideously overpriced. A Pinot noir that retails for $20 being sold at $120 - markup for profit to be expected, but that is robbery! Our server was polite and attentive. We were seated in the back dining room, which was mostly empty when we sat down. It was just too quiet.
