Service was rushed and mediocre at best.
We were not offered the a la carte menu, and waiter informed us after ordering our mains that we a limited selection of desert because we were limited to prefix.
This was particularly disappointing because I chose the Benjamin because when I called about the reservation, they told me that the regular menu was being offered that night.
Service was so rushed the waiter asked us for our dinner order before we ordered a drink.
Steaks were super charred but otherwise tasty.
Overall our guests and my fiancé were not impressed.

Came here My Wife’s 30th birthday and it was a amazing experience the food was very very good. We got the dried aged steak for 2 with Benjamin’s own home fires with blue cheese melted on top. The blue cheese was an extra $3 but it was worth it, the cheese brought a whole new dimension to the home fries that i have never experienced before. The creamed spinach was also amazing but the steak man that steak it ranked right up there with Peter lugers and Keens. It came on a sizzling hot plate and the waiter actually pressed the meat against the plates edge adding flavor

The staff are very friendly and pleasant. My hubby’s b-day dinner and our waiter brought us the cheesecake with candle on it, and sang the song as well. Nice gesture.
The steak is probably better than P&L, and absolutely delicious!!! The best steak we ever had. The salmon was so fluffy inside and crispy outside, very good. Mac and cheese with lobster - the best m&c we ever tasted.
Expensive so we can’t afford to go on a regular basis but for a special occasion, totally worth it. The wine selection is superb too.
It was a perfect dinner !

I chose the Benjamin to propose to my girlfriend. I left a little note during the reservation. They sat me upstairs semi-private. The service was very good, food very good of course, desert to die for. The patrons around us started leaving. No one else was sat on the second floor. Took a little long but eventually we were finally all alone and I got on one knee. The proposal went perfect, dinner went perfect. Thank you to the Benjamin staff !

Mario, Nick, G, GG, D, DD and Rick and more do an awesome job with amazing steaks and sides. Plus they have the Creamless Creamed Spinach which is amazing, lobster mac and cheese, the chicken causer salad and more. Best Steakhouse in NYC (including Brooklyn and Queens!!).

Let me qualify this critique by saying this restaurant is in mid-town Manhattan so I hold it to a higher dining standard than most. First, the fit and finish of the space is lacking and the feeling of the room is not that of fine dining. The service was exception, our waiter was personable and did an excellent job. The food was really good but not exceptionally unique. The steak was well prepared. The sides were good, but in a cheap food sort of way (the way Olive Garden is good, even though you know it's not). Unfortunately, it felt like a cheap knock-off of a brand name, it'll do the job OK, but just doesn't pass for the real thing when details matter, and bill was just as pricey as any other Manhattan steakhouse.

Service was excellent. Glasses were kept full and any questions were helpfully answered. The steak for two is the house specialty and it did not disappoint. The place has a relaxed atmosphere, making for a very special evening.
