Steakhouse
Ben & Jack’s steakhouse has been delivering the quintessential New York City steakhouse experience since opening its first location in 2005. In search of the holy grail of steaks, there are very few steakhouses in New York City, whose time-honored tradition stands alone: classic dishes prepared to perfection, prime dry-aged steaks, classic steakhouse menu, delectable seafood and exemplary customer service.

Always amazing; never disappoints. Steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were delightful. Service might be their secret recipe. Can’t wait to go back!!

Staff are awesome / food is great / wine pours are solid!

Candy by the hostess stand (Angie) as you leave is a must!

The experience you have at Ben & Jack's Steak House is phenomenal
The ambience is very relaxing and the good is fantastic. Petite filet mignon melt in your mouth and the rib eye is second to none. It was nice to celebrate my son's birthday here.

Amazingly delicous rib eye!!!!!! Great service. The only reason I gave it four stars, is that I thought the Lobester Bisque could use some work. It wasn't bad but it was on the fishy side and I've had much better.
The steak is amazing as was our side on Onion Rings. We split the ribeye for one as we are not big eaters and it lasted 3 more meals. They got the steak right.

It was my birthday and they brought me a piece of cheesecake and whipped cream and 3 waiters sang to me after my huge delicious hamburger and fries. Always go there for lunch and the food is outstanding all the time. Very nice owners and excellent wait staff. Go there.

Scallops were wonderful. Steaks were good, but not great. One of ours was ordered medium, came out on the rare side of medium rare, ask to cook it a bit more and came back well done. No much to them outside the butter they were cooked in.

When we were seated, we were placed between two other tables. The volume of their conversations were loud. My wife complained. Immediately Mario, the general manager, moved us to a better table as well as giving us two glasses of champagne. He went above what he could do to please us. Our waiter was great and we had excellent service with the excellent meal. When we ordered dessert, we were given two glasses of port. Completely unnecessary but appreciated. Definitely will go again at our next weekend in NYC.

We have always enjoyed going for the lunch special which is the best bargain in town. The entire meal is prepared with the care they take at dinner and the portions are generous. The French onion soup, sirloin steak and mashed potatoes are fabulous. Highly recommend the key lime pie for dessert. One of our favorite steakhouses at any time. Also, enjoy the nice spacing between tables. A nice selection of wines by the glass, too. Excellent choice for any meal.

This is the best steak I've eaten in Manhattan. The mashed potatoes and broccoli and mixed salad are excellent too. I highly recommend this place. The owners treat you like a special guest every time I go in there for lunch. Very, very good place on the East side.

Everything about Ben and Jack's is fabulous!! From the minute you are greeted when you walk in the door, until the glass of Port is brought after a scrumptious dinner. A wonderful 'Old New York' steakhouse!

Ben and Jack's has done it again ! Top notch steaks , 1.50 happy hour oysters and top shelf drinks , a great wine list and the best service in NYC . This is by far my favorite steakhouse . Ask for Dino or Timmy for the best service . Dont leave without having a bucket of Schlog! Shout out to Admir, Hodgy,and Eko also Ronnie for another 10 star evening . We will be returning again and again. No other restaurant comes close to Ben and Jack's truly a restaurant like no other !

Arrived 730 1/3 full, departed 9PM 25% full if this is an insufficient comment, please read on.

Waitstaff pleasant but unprofessional, bread tray, an embarrassment; sesame crusted tuna appetizer generous and of good quality. Drinks, meh. How difficult is it to make a gin & tonic? T-bone steak cooked as ordered but tasted slightly gamey and not partucularly tender. German Potatoes slightly over cooked & very salty. Asparagus fine. Chopped salad with shrimp...chopped salad with shrimp. Key lime pie was not but whatever it was, it was interesting. Coffee surprisingly good.

Dino was awesome and made my stay memorable. The sirloin was delicious, as were the Brussel Sprouts and Mac & Cheese. The wedge salad was mediocre, but all was redeemed with the beautiful, extremely large, and decadent ice cream sundae with schlag on top! I will go back for sure.

A waiter poured water into our sparkling water glass, the steak is overcooked for medium well, the espresso is expired and the cheesecake is not fresh. You should not expect from its ranking and no more going.

Ben and Jack's is the magnificent pearl in a sea of NYC steakhouse oysters. My wife and I have been going there for our anniversary, special occasion parties, and for a romantic night out since discovering it in 2006. The staff is exceptional and could not be more solicitous. The slight alterations of the menu show that not only do they hold to their roots and traditions, but can also adapt and adjust to a 2020 clientele. After posting some pictures and descriptions through social media we had a bunch of friends ask for the address, so I'd recommend getting there soon!!!

We ere over charged for the resturant week special. We did not make any fuss about it, however this should have been something that the sesrver should have looked out for. He was very non attentive. We had to ask for our waters to be refilled and the resturant was empty.
