The steak for four (porterhouse) was delectable! One of our guests had crutches and the restaurant was very accommodating. The lobster appetizer was fantastic! Excellent food and a lovely “old world” classic ambience. Make sure not to mix this restaurant (Benjamin Steakhouse) up with a restaurant with a very similar name (Benjamin Prime) as Benjamin Prime is not the same. Make sure to let your guests know the exact address so they don’t go to the wrong steakhouse.

I love Benjamin’s. I visit it every time i go to NYC. This time, the wait staff were a bit sloppy, took a few tries to get the foot right, and could have explained the menu better.

However, the steak was still amazing, the wait staff were friendly, and did reduce our bill, because they knew it wasn’t perfect.

I’ll go back, but wouldn’t be in a rush to recommend to others.

While I do not usually eat steak, I took my wife and brother here for a treat. Their rib-eyes were perfectly cooked and delicious—I know because I caved and tried the steak. I will have steak there the next time we go! The sautéed mushrooms and the sautéed onions were excellent. We also had the onion ring and cottage fries (potato chip) combo, which was good. The house steak sauce is also good. I had the wedge salad w/browned cubes of Canadian bacon and tasty bleu cheese dressing. Wasn’t wild about the soup, but a minor caveat for such a terrific meal. The setting is elegant and the service is flawless. The wait staff know their stuff and do their thing with efficiency and just the right touch of friendliness.

It had been too long since we last ate at The Benjamin. Lunch felt like coming home after a long trip. The steak was magnificent. The service was efficient yet unobtrusive. Things just "happened" when they were supposed to. Everything combined to make for a memorable experience.

Quite possibly the best steakhouse in NYC. The prices are very fair in comparison to the sheer quality of meats that are offered and you get A LOT for what you pay for.

I had ordered the slab bacon appetizer, which is definitely a must, along with the garlic asparagus and one of the rib eye steaks. Everything was simply amazing and I ever took a few more items to go afterwards just to have more throughout the week.

Very friendly environment all around, and our server was very enthusiastic about his job and making sure were we happy. Definitely will be back soon.

We ordered porterhouse for two, medium rare. Only one piece of the entire cut was juicy. The rest was just hard to chew.

The $14 asparagas only has six sticks. Not worth 100 per person

Best steak in the city! My husband and I both had a crab cake for appetizer and 20oz ribeye for main course. We finished them all! The dry aged steak was perfectly crispy on the outside, tender and juicy inside. Service was great as well. Good recommendation from the waitor.

Regrettably, our long waited expectation was not fulfilled. While our steaks were no.1 quality wise, were tasteless making lower standing competitors more attractive.

Simply the best steak in the City. But beyond the food, it's the amazing staff that take the time to get to know you and make you feel like family. Benjamin has perfected the art of customer service. You can't get this personal touch in other restaurants. It's such a great experience here.
