Food was good but overall a little salty for my taste. But the steak for two had great fracture.

The steaks are definitely worth the price, the sides are overpriced and not quite as good quality. We booked an early reservation on our last day in New York and suffered from waiter boredom service (a waiter with not enough tables to keep him busy so he was constantly checking on us).

This steakhouse is ok in comparison to the others in NYC. The food was ok, nothing extraordinary. Ambiance was ok, perhaps sitting on 2nd floor might have been better. Our server was great, his name was Jet, very accommodating, social and available on hand during our complete dining experience. Prices are best for the pre fix because the quality of the food doesnt pay to order ala carte.

The Easter menu was fabulous. My friend and I had the grilled lamb chops, best ever. Our other friend had the Chilean Sea Bass, most delicious. Service is excellent.

Friday was my boyfriend’s 30th Birthday. When I made this reservation, I indicated on Open Table that his birthday was the special occasion for the dinner. They must not have read my reservation comments because there was no mention of the special occasion.

My wife and I and our two daughters enjoyed an amazing evening at Benjamins. We skipped the entrees and went straight for the main event, steak for 4. A generous sized Porterhouse steak arrived pre sliced with Sirloin on either side and Filet Mignon in the middle. Wow, we all agreed it was beautifully seasoned and so tasty and perfectly cooked. We also had the Benjamin home fries, steak fries, peas & onions, asparagus and creamed spinach on the side to share. Delicious. My wife and I had a modestly priced Californian red wine from Francis Ford Coppola and that too was served at the perfect temperature and tasted sublime, the perfect accompaniment to the meal. For dessert we had chocolate cake, creme brûlée and I had the Apple Strudel all served with Schlag which is a delicious sweetened whipped cream. All in all it was a faultless evening.

Food and table service was excellent. The hostess and welcoming staff could be a little bit more friendly and welcoming. The wait staff after being seated was exemplary, and extremely attentive with attention to detail. One waiter remembered an offhand comment I made that it was my dinner guest's birthday and brought a dessert without any prior request. The food was glorious and of highest quality. I enjoyed my experience at Benjamin very much and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to someone looking for a real steak experience.

I brought my daughter for a special birthday celebration. There were a lot of business people and fewer families. Nevertheless, we were made to feel very welcomed. The service was incredible, only to be outdone by the steak. I can’t wait to be back in New York and back in Benjamin’s!

Benjamin steakhouse is my favorite restaurants. But I was disappointed When One of the servers steps on my feet so hard and disgusting that I had to stare at him in order for him to apologize.

Very lovely decor. Matradi very professional and attentive. Steaks were cooked perfectly and were seasoned nicely. All the food was delicious. Waiter was good but seemed to be a little relaxed for the ambience. Still an excellent experience. Have been to several NYC steak houses and would go back and recommend!

Ahh, from the moment I was greeted to my appetizer of Shrimp cocktail, to My Porterhouse for 2 was cooked to perfection, ( mouth watering) cream of spinach, was not overly creamy just right.
Best cheesecake I have eaten in quite awhile. So worth it.

Highly recommend Benjamins!
