I always end up at Ben and Jacks if I want an incredible steak. This is my go to place and love the mac and cheese here. Great service and amazing staff.

This restaurant is generally excellent for dinner, but lunch is a different matter. The big problem is NO BARTENDER. I realize that cocktails at lunch for the business crowd is out of fashion, but for retirees, a good cocktail is an essential component of almost any meal. I couldn't get a simple vodka gimlet. My suggestion is, if you want an adult beverage, stick to beer or wine. The waitstaff can handle that, otherwise, go elsewhere. The filet mignon medallions weren't medallions (they were tidbits) and were overcooked. Not a good sign for a steakhouse. Eat dinner here, but avoid lunch!

The menu is uninspired and they don't list out the sizes of the steaks. I was there on a Saturday night and it was not crowded which should have been a signal to me that something was amiss. No specials at all. Meat was overcooked as was the lobster tail for the surf and turf, which was $69. My rib steak was just OK. I don't recall the old Ben and Jack's being this mediocre, but this was really an expensive but so-so dinner.

I initiated a dinner with a business colleague here based on my past experiences and built up the anticipation for a great dining experience. Sadly, we were both disappointed. First, we were seated next to the kitchen access along a narrow path between tables. Waiters constantly bumped into our elbows as they passed by.

Our waiter was arrogant and aloof. He took our menus after we ordered our appetizers, didn't ask for drink orders and we had to ask for service so we could order our entrees. Our steaks were both overcooked and the waiter never returned to ask how the meal was. We ordered apple strudel with vanilla ice cream. It came with chocolate ice cream and the server said they didn't have vanilla. I asked for the bill to be split with the exception that I would pay for the drinks. The waiter said "sure" and then presented the checks and declared that he only separated them equally.

Based on our experience, I would not trust this establishment for another business or social dinner, given the many other options available in New York City.

Great steaks, attentive service, and a very comfortable setting. Not as well known or touted as some of the other NY steakhouses, but it has become one of my go-to places for a terrific steak.

We are repeat diners at Ben and Jacks Fifth Avenue and always love it. We have people who only eat fish, seafood, or meat and everyone always says their food is excellent. All of the steaks are wonderful and cooked exactly as ordered. The ambiance is warm and cozy and the service is very attentive. Waiters go out of their way to ensure a great experience. Highly recommend.

this is a nice location and wasn't too busy. the staff were nice and the lobster ravioli was good but I'd skip the Caesar salad next time, not worth the price.

Ken and Jack’s is one of our favorite restaurants in the city.
Weed here several times a year and this time had friends visiting from Arizona.
By the looks of their plates, they enjoyed it as much as we did

Thank you for yet another memorable experience and a delicious meal

I ate alone. I didn't drink alcohol. It was obvious they didn't care about me because I wasn't going to be a "big ticket" item. I asked for a quiet table, they put me next to the kitchen. I asked for a different table and they reluctantly accommodated. They ignored me the whole time. The food was terrible, except for the lobster Mac and cheese. Only checked on me after I tried several times to get their attention. Then I waited nearly 15 minutes for the bill. The multiple-people tables were their attention - bigger tips. Well, I normally tip very well for EARNED service. They didn't earn it.

As always - we had a great meal and impeccable service overall. Steaks are always done to perfection and the Wedge Salad is amazing when they remember to bring the bleu cheese dressing with it. Really enjoy taking the team here for a relaxing meal.

 (Miami)·Dined on September 2, 2017

If you're looking for quantity instead of quality, this is the place for you. $48.95 for a 16 oz steak which was mediocre at best. They advertise "aged beef" but I did not detect any of the flavors one usually gets with real aged beef. The rack of lamb I got was very fatty and stringy. The "hollandaise" sauce I asked for to go with the asparagus tasted like hellmann's mayo and lemon juice. They pride themselves on the whipped cream they serve with desert... it's just whipped cream! Will not be going back.

This is a gem of a restaurant. The beef is as good as I've had. The ambience is warm and welcoming. Value was equal to what was asked. Our waiter Jimmy added 15-20% to the experience. Friends went 2 nights later and reported a similar level of satisfaction.

Went during Restaurant Week for dinner. Apps ordered were the bacon and tomato with mozzarella. Bacon was one semi thick cut slice, plain. I got 2 slices of semi ripe tomato with 1 thin mozzarella slice and barely noticeable pesto. Beer was reasonably priced but $16 for a nice pour of decent wine was still too much. For entrees we both got sirloin steak, one medium rare and one medium, each came with mashed potatoes and broccoli. Steaks were incorrectly labeled and we got wrong ones but we just switched. Didn't get to mention it to waiter because he never even came over to ask how everything was. For dessert we got cheesecake and chocolate pie. Both were very good however I got half of a regular slice of cheesecake which was disappointing. Good value on food for RW but wouldn't go back.
