From the moment we stepped
From the moment we stepped up to the front door to the moment we left, we were well served! My husband and I have eaten at several locally owned and chain establishments, and he always seems indifferent, neither liking nor disliking the food. Louis Benton was a whole different story! The service was second to none. And the food...oh my goodness! We had a four-course meal: an appetizer (Thai Rock Shrimp), soup and salad (I had the Grilled Ceasar salad, my husband chose the French Onion soup), entree (New York Strip and Seafood Trio Pasta), and dessert (cheesecake and black forest cake). We took home a full meal of leftovers. Everything was cooked to perfection. One of GR's best kept secrets!

We had a great first experience
We had a great first experience in part to our server who helped us through the menu. We enjoyed all of his suggestions and plan to come back again!

Dustin our waiter was outstanding, and led us through the menu with fantastic twists and turns. We have eaten here before, but this particular trip was our best. We also like the remodel of the restaurant. Highly recommended to all.

We arrived about 15 minutes
We arrived about 15 minutes early for our 5:30 reservation and were seated immediately, in spite of it being St Patrick's weekend. The service at our table was good, but not great, even though you expect exceptional service at a restaurant like this. When we ordered soup, the waiter forgot to bring spoons, and we had to wait almost 10 minutes before he brought them. He also brought steak knives for everyone at our table, except my husband, so he had to ask for one, and again wait. The food was delicious. The grilled Caesar salad was especially good. Our steaks were good, and the fillet was very tender.

My husband and I wanted to
My husband and I wanted to go out for dinner at a quiet place where we could actually here each other speaking! This was such a great place for this! We were given a corner table, had excellent service, and the food was amazing! Would go back in a heart beat! Thanks for the great dining experience!

Everything was great! They
Everything was great! They are a little pricey but I think you get what you pay for. I know when you pay the high price at some places you get small portions and are paying more for the presentation of the food on the plate and the service. Here you are getting the whole package: good size portions, excellent service,& great tasting food.

We had a wonderful dinner
We had a wonderful dinner and the staff was very professional. They went above and beyond in their service. Patrick came out to introduce himself and we were very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism as well.
They were knowledgable of Celiac disease and were able to accomodate my food allergies.

We dined during the week when it was not as busy. Very nice for an intimate anniversary dinner. The lobster crab cakes were delicious. The steaks were done perfectly and our waiter Justin was very knowlegable about the wines.

Recommended but not to die for.
Only real complaint was brief thumping music when adjacent bar / club opened up. This put a slight damper in the normallt very romantic atmosphere. Food is really good but not over the top phenominal. Service is outstanding. Love the free valet service!

Love their food. Very nicely
Love their food. Very nicely done. They could do something different with their portion sizes. The pasta dishes are priced high because it's a pound of pasta. You can't eat it all. Smaller sized steaks would be nice too.

First time my husband and I had visited Louis Benton, but it was fantastic. Well worth the money!

We had a wonderful time dining at Louis Benton. They were one of the few restaurants where you are able to have a complete dining experience. We did not feel rushed at all. Great place!

For making our second return visit a pleasant one. We will most definitely return, atmosphere was pleasant; Kristin made us feel welcome and comfortable. We will return another time. Thank you Richard for your understanding and kindness.

Best special night in 10 years
The team at LB went out of their way to make our 26th anniversary dinner a memorable experience. The prime rib was best in years and my wife's center cut was perfect. I am a master steak griller so its not every day I give props to the steak house for their meat selection and preparation. The choc-dipped-strawberries with the congratulations message written on the plate topped it all off in style!

We had a nice dinner with
We had a nice dinner with out of town customers visiting GR. The wine, food and service were very good. It got a little noisy when the door to the bar/lounge area was left open. Other than that it was a good atmosphere to talk business and enjoy a good steak.

One of the best in GR
Excellent ambience, food and service. I have been a restauranteur for decades, and this is one of the best!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our dinner was fabulous and I would recommend the Turkey Tenderloin Bacon Wraps. Our server Alex was extremely knowledgeable and she was very pleasant. The chef was very experienced with food allergies and they took every precaution necessary to provide myself and my husband with safe meals.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My date and I had a nice dinner at Louis Benton. The food was very good, my date's steak was "melt in your mouth" good! Our waitress, Samantha, was delightful. Very knowledgeable about the food and the wine. Excellent service and we plan to come back again!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was smooth and delicious from the start! Our waiter brought us a champagne toast and chocolate covered strawberries to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Service was prompt and helpful. He suggested a great bottle of Cabernet and dinner was exquisite! Wedge salads are huge and lobster Mac was incredible! My husband enjoyed his steak with a garlic herb sauce. Great place!

Our party of four ordered three steaks (2 prime rib and 1 tenderloin) and the lobster mac & cheese. Prime rib was excellent. The only reason the food was rated very good instead of outstanding is because the tenderloin for the price was a bit of a disappointment. The mac & cheese was a generous portion and leftovers lasted two more meals. The ambience of the restaurant was relaxing and our waiter was excellent. Overall service and food was very good to excellent.

Good Food & Great Atmosphere
New York Strip steak was very good, at least the edible portion of it. Best Rum Runner I ever had. Polite and friendly staff. Would go again and try something else.

The service was impeccable, very attentive and accomodating. In addition to the amazing service, the food was to die for. I decided to try something the server suggested and I was pleasantly surprised. It tasted divine. Overall, the dinner was amazing and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone.

Excellent Fine Dining Experience
My wife and I treated my parents to dinner at Louis Benton. The experience was exceptional from start to finish. Our meal began with fresh-baked bread, which was served in a generous portion. For entrees, our party tried three different cuts - prime rib, filet and New York strip. The chef prepared each steak exactly as ordered. All three were fantastic. Each also came with potatoes and asparagus; a great value.
All four members of our party agreed that the service at Louis Benton was first-rate. Our waiter was absolutely excellent. He made the entire dining experience enjoyable. When we were looking for quiet conversation he left us to ourselves but whenever we needed assistance he was at our table immediately. We hope to have him again!

Had an absolutely amazing time, the lighting was perfect, we went for a special occasion and the food was absolutely amazing. Cook just right, and just the right amount. Our server was extremely nice and friendly and maintained everything up to service. I couldn't have asked for a better evening, he served us so well I felt compelled to tip him above the normal amount.

Worthy of a Visit
I was visiting GR and a group of us enjoyed a wonderful meal on October 30. There was a wonderful wine selection and a phenomenal server Jesse.
Most of us chose a signature beef selection and they were all cooked to our choice.
We weren't rushed and our server made the experience wonderful...Highly recommend and we will visit again when we come back to town.

Great Steak and Potatoes
The décor and atmosphere are perfect for a special occasion or romantic evening. We dined on a Thursday evening and a complimentary potato, sauce, and vegetable were included in the price of the steak. Salads are still extra but are huge. The prime rib was cooked to perfection, smashed potatoes were seasoned and full of flavor, and the asparagus was tender.
The waitress was excellent and very attentive. The steak sauce and cheesecake dessert she recommended proved to be excellent choices. We are planning to go back in December.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I had two gift cards that would expire at the end of December so we really needed to make reservations and use them. Friday night was a perfect time to go. With Friday night football still going on the restaurant was not too busy. We had a young server but she was fantastic and even got my husbands sense of humor. From the wine, the appetizer to the steak, everything was awesome. Didn't leave any room for dessert unfortunately.
We have been there before for coporate parties etc., but never just a date night. We will go back on a special occaision.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We dined on Saturday evening with my family and 6 year old granddaughter(+doll). The steaks were fantastic. I like what they have done with the menu. Now your meal includes 2 sides, compared to having for order everything a/la/carte. Great server and super nice manager. We will be back!!
