Benjamin Steakhouse - Westchester Ratings and Reviews
Service outstanding, food delicious. We waited 10 minutes to be seated, clearly overbooked and packed, surprising for a Sunday night even with HVRW. Lobster bisque smooth & flavorful, sirloin top notch, filet mignon melted in mouth, sides very nicely cooked. Nice bottle of Australian red was about half price, good staff recommendation. Carrot cake was moist and tasty. We all agreed we will eat here again.
The food was ok but very salty and nothing exceptional. The service was abrupt and unpleasant. The waiter spilled the ice water at least three times on the table. I did not hear an apology. The interior was nice but that's not enough for nice dinner. I don't think we will be going back.
I think they over charged me. It was myself and son and we ordered off the price fixe menu the 33.92 dinner per person, the only thing I had was a glass of Pinot Grigio and was charged before tax 97.18????
I questioned it when I got home but figured it was too late.
I was expecting so much and was disappointed. This restaurant has such a good reputation. Maybe it was because it was Restaurant Week but the place was extremely crowded and very, very noisy. We needed to yell to hear each other. The food was tasty but nothing exceptional. Again, it was Restaurant Week and I just don't know if the food on the regular menu would be better.
We went for the first week of HV Restaurant Week. Everything was so good that we made a reservation for the second week. Both visits the service was outstanding. But on the second visit my husband's soup was serviced lukewarm and my sirloin steak was inferior. It was medium as opposed to medium rare and had grizelle and fat. It was small as compared to the first visit.
The food and service was good, but inconsistent. My steak was cooked perfectly and rested appropriately. My dates steak was not well rested and the juices ran all over the plate causing it to become medium-well instead of medium. At the beginning of the night the service was very attentive, but as the night progressed it lessened. No one came to check on our meals and it was difficult to get their attention for the check. It seemed if you were not a friend of the staff your service was not as good.
We were looking forward to a nice meal at Benjamin’s but it was an unpleasant experience. They were busy and hustled us in like cattle. The waiters didn’t care about the diners other than getting them in and out as fast as possible. They mixed up our orders and no one at the table really liked the meal. The worst was the noise, it was so loud it was impossible to have a conversation. So disappointed and would not recommend.
Very disappointed. Went for restaurant week. Usually go to another steakhouse in the area but decided to try this one. Salad dressing had little taste and almost no blue cheese. Filet, which was an additional $7, was ok, nothing special. The drinks, which took forever to arrive at our table, although the restaurant was not crowded, were overpriced. Will not be returning.
We came early, before six. The maitre d' and the wait staff were personable and attentive. Knowledgeable about the wine list. A little funny, always a welcome thing. Lobster bisque, served in a soup plate, was orange colored, creamy and delicious. We had the filet mignon which was wonderful, and the NY Sirloin which was quite firm but rare as requested. The creamed spinach was outstanding - mostly spinach and with a smooth, full taste. Towards the end of the meal, traffic in the dining room picked up and we lost our waiter. With some effort, flagged down another waiter to seek a check. Would definitely return, but don't recommend coming at prime time unless you are at leisure. Beautiful, warm toned dining room.
I was incredibly disappointed with the experience I had at Benjamin Steakhouse. I recently moved into the area and was looking forward to trying it out as a potential regular date night spot. I am a Westchester-based food blogger and had been interested in posting about the food. The food was good, but the service was genuinely a disappointment. The server was not only rude to my table, but to the table next to me as well. For what was supposed to be a sophisticated dining experience, we were never asked once how the meal was, never were asked if we wanted additional glasses of wine after the first and had to listen to the waitstaff make fun of the other diners as they congregated near our table to gossip. The filet was good, but the experience left a terrible taste in my mouth.
We have been to Benjamin's many times and it never seems to disappoint. The waiter was exact and our food was brought out with the right amount of speed. Steak was excellent, salads & sides were delicious and the linguine did not disappoint.
Note: This is the sort of place to which you wear a dinner jacket. Minor qualm was that a group of people were seated wearing graphic t-shirts, cut off jeans, dirty sneakers & baseball caps. Sorry, but that is really not the right thing to wear to a restaurant that valets your car, has white tablecloths, pays waiters to wear suits and lists menu items that cost over $100. This is not the Jersey Shore or a Yankee game!
We have been here many times and still return for the great service and delicious food. Our favorite server is Levent aka Lenny. He is our favorite. He knows everything on the menu and even offers suggestions for pacing out the meal. We look forward to dining here and we make it a point to add his name to our reservation each and every time we go.
