Decent steakhouse. Only complaint is too many waiters hovering. Don’t get me wrong, I love good service. But its too much. Makes it somewhat unenjoyable as you’re constantly being interrupted by wait staff.

The food was absolutely delicious, but for how much you are paying for being there, the service was not great. The owner/manager did come in to check in with us to make sure the meal was delicious, but then we had to ask our waiter for more water, to clear our plates multiple times, and to see a dessert menu. Not a huge problem - but for the amount we pay - you would think there would be better service.

The steaks - we had a sampling of ribeye, fillet mignon and a massive T-bone - were exquisite and well cooked to everyone’s liking. Massive wine selection and the sides were just right especially the House Potatoes. Ambience was just right - perhaps a bit too dark - but it really gave a good vibe to those in my group. The service by the waiter, Jet from Kosovo, was solid! He knew the wine to pair our steaks with and engaged in lively banter about his Filipino friends. Great experience and will definitely visit again in my next trip to NYC.

I went specifically to eat the Veal Chop, which is on their menu online but was told that it has been off the menu for a year now!
The manager did give us a free after-dinner drink to apologize, but this should not have been overlooked for so long! Was disappointed since we go to Benjamin's once a year during our visit to New York.

Classic rock was playing which seemed odd for the environment. For the price, I have been to better steakhouses. Service was good. Ladies room was gross. That always makes me wonder about the overall cleanliness of a restaurant.

“Meat Me @ Benjamin Steakhouse!”

This steakhouse has all the trappings of the NYC Steakhouse but exceeds the standard as to the quality of the steak and service of the waiter staff.
No ‘surly’ waiters here... only a friendly staff that was excellent.
The ribeye on the bone coupled with several bottles of red ensured a great meal!

It’s always a pleasure dining at Benjamin’s Steakhouse. It’s the only place I eat burgers at, as it’s always hearty, tasty, and delicious. Can’t wait to be back again!

Every children know that the hallway is not a dining room. A narrow table and special waiter who cannot serve without overflowing the water.

Food and service good. We were at a table surrounded by children and babies. Quite distracting. And the tables were way too close together. Food very expensive. Steak knives needed sharpening.

Excellent steaks and very good service, however the venue is let down by the continual 'racket' of a noise and very overpriced steaks and sides compared to similar establishments. New York isn't short of great steakhouses, for the price you pay you could get a more relaxed ambience and warmer surroundings for a similar price

Amazing!

I’m very petite and I don’t eat much, so a steak for 2 was way too much food for us. I wish I knew the size of the portion ahead of time. But other than that it’s amazing!

Enjoy!

Not impressed at all. Steak was tough and juts not good. I have no issue spending on a good meal but this was 250 all in for two of us to eat and we both left dissatisfied, unimpressed and intent on not going back. We had eaten at Keens on our last trip and that was incredible, similar price wise but amazing door, great ambience and decor and juts overall what you want in a NYC steakhouse experience. Benjamin Steakhouse we found online and it said that celebrities tended to favour it. That would make one think it was higher end and quality. I wouldn’t recommend it. I have been to steakhouses all over the world with my work travel and this one was not great. The manager was walking around asking how people were enjoying their meals and was visibly not impressed when we said “it’s okay”. He was expecting us to be effusive and excited. Had the food, service and ambience warranted it, we would have. As I said Keens was great and Sparks is our next trip because of the Mob history. Hopefully it will be a great true NY steakhouse.

I have often said this about Benjamin's and it still holds true to this day. You may be able to find a steakhouse as good as Benjamin, but you'll never find one better. The food is top notch, the service is attentive, and the atmosphere is fantastic. Benjamin's is the best.
