Contemporary American

Located in the heart of Brooklyn's Park Slope, Benchmark Restaurant features a New American menu focused on pasture-raised animals and locally-grown produce. Executive Chef Ryan Jaronik has created a diverse menu that melds the traditional and the contemporary with global influences. Featured is a section of à la carte steaks and chops offering up to five different cuts, including a 24oz Bone-in Ribeye and an 10oz Filet Mignon. Other favorites include Seared Foie Gras, Seared Diver Scallops and Philly Cheese Steak Empanadas.

Between the '20s & '40s, the space that now occupies Benchmark was used as an icehouse and major way station for goods that that arrived on the banks of the Gowanas Canal. While excavating, several "benchmarks" (surveyor's marks) were found, along with architects' tools, some of which are displayed on the restaurant's walls. Benchmark's rich history and naturally rustic interior is enhanced by warm exposed brick, arched windows and spacious garden seating.

They were busy last night and service was slow - from getting menus, drinks and entrees. Waiter was apologetic and comp’ed kids Shirley temples. Food wasn’t typical standard - still tasty but salmon was a bit over done and missing creme fraiche with dollop of roe. Steaks were good (not great like usual). Veggie chop good but a bit sadly presented.

For apps we ordered the beet and goat cheese salad, lobster bisque, scallops. For mains we had the filet mignon, NY strip steak with the Brussel sprout esquites and potato purée. I would love to go back again for a special occasion.

The steak and cheese empanadas were flavorful and crispy. The king crab hush puppies were a little bland. Our sandwiches did not disappoint. The oxtail meat was spiced just right. The BLAT’s chicken was moist and delicious. The items on the menu that we wouldn’t order again were the drinks. The flavors weren’t crisp enough, and almost seemed watered down. Overall, while we might come back, we’ll try other restaurants in the area first.

The food was incredible, very attentive service, quiet, we got wet burgers, Brussels, crab stuff sole and we had two amazing desserts. We love it all! 10/10 will go back and recommend

They have such great heating outside that we were all comfortable with our coats off even though it was a chilly night. Don't miss the scallop appetizer, the kale Greek salad or the porterhouse. The dessert choices, though delicious, could have been better0there were only 2 choices.

I like sitting in their outdoor tented area. It's off the street and sidewalk, so it is very comfortable. I came this time for a special happy hour event of beer and bites pairings. The food was great, as always. I enjoyed the beers. I hope they do more events like this again.

Our waiter even surprised us with a nice desert for her birthday which was unbelievable. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to eating here again.

It was tasty but the smallest portion I have ever been served anywhere! Generally restaurants serve an entire duck breast, that is served in slices on the plate. My order arrived with two small slices of duck on the plate, with the corn pudding and braised greens on the side. For $33, that was an absurdly small portion. My husband ordered the 16 oz. boneless ribeye steak, which he requested to be rare. The steak that arrived was partly medium rare and partly overcooked/well done! Unfortunately my husband didn't complain to me until he had eaten much of the steak. He was not a happy camper however. My husband had ordered a ginger ale to drink. The beverage that was served to him was awful and didn't taste like ginger ale. It was just sweet and fizzy. He then asked for a cranberry spritzer in its place. That was even worse - just terrible tasting and undrinkable! For a restaurant serving food at the price points that Benchmark does, and that has a full bar, they certainly should be able to serve brand name soft drinks and be able to make a simple drink like a cranberry spritzer with brand name cranberry juice! This shouldn't be a challenging order!

What a gem of a place - space is rustic and reeks of its history; the food was uniformly excellent and nicely presented. At this hour (2:30-3:30) the place was not crowded, David was a charming host and service was friendly and professional. We had a birthday to celebrate and the kitchen made a lovely (and delicious) dessert for the candle. I cannot recommend this highly enough - a treasure.
