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 !

The food was spot-on! Delicious. Came for lunch; ordered burgers, filet mignon, and seafood appetizers. Everything was cooked to perfection, and the service was very attentive.

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.

The ambiance, amazing and consistently delicious food make Benjamin the go-to place in New York City. The Maître’d’s Victor and Ben make you feel welcome and if you can score super waiter extraordinaire, Ricky, ready yourselves for an unforgettable experience.

Food was decent but for that price, I would expect great. My wife's steak was a little overdone and mine lacked salt required to bring out the great flavour.

The filet mignon was perfect, but everything else fell short food-wise. Surprising that this place gets a 4.0 Zagat rating for food: French onion soup was a bit too salty, mushrooms were a bit too mushy, red wine was too warm, and I’m very sorry to say but the chocolate mousse was awful—tasted like a cheap oreo cake. Good atmosphere and service, although the guy in bathroom that actuates the faucet and soap dispenser for you and hands you paper towels is a bit too much. Final bill came to $90 a piece (with tip) even though we split both the filet mignon and the mousse between the two of us. Not good value for your money.

Amazing service, delicious food, you couldn’t ask for more than that. Best steak I’ve had in years. Also, the service by every single waiter was top notch. Took a date out and we were both very satisfied. Much appreciated.

Date night was amazing. Fillet and New York Strip - both medium rare cooked to perfection - were delicious. Sides were tasty. Beautiful and quite place, we could have a conversation across the table. One of the best steakhouses in NYC and a must visit for all the carnivores!

Everything that I heard about the restaurant prior to dinning was exactly what I had. The service was top notch, food was very good, and the overall price for everything was very reasonable for a steak house. Very good steak, apps, and wine list. I look forward to coming back again. Walter and Johnny were awesome !!

My family’s favorite NYC steakhouse! The steak will melt in your mouth and the sides are amazing! Don’t forget the bacon as an appetizer...and the Ben & Jacks salad!

Had a great dinner ringing in the new year with my wife. Very attentive and friendly staff. I would highly recommend the oysters, ribeye, lobster Mac and asparagus! All of it was AMAZING! Also a great bourbon selection. I will make this a normal trip every time I come to NY.

ランチで利用しました。2名で行き、ジュニアサーロインとヒレを1つずつ注文。焼き方はミディアムかレアか聞かれます。どちらもレアで注文。サーロインは表面がカリカリに焼かれていて、ナイフで切ると肉汁が溢れてとてもジューシーでした。味付けは塩気が効いていて美味しかったです。脂身が多めで、スジも少し残っていたので、まさにアメリカ!ニューヨーク!を味わいたい方にオススメかと思います。ヒレはナイフを入れるとスッとほぐれます。かなり厚みがありますが、とても柔らかいのですんなり食べられました。お肉自体もジューシーで美味しいのですが、マッシュルームソースが付いていて付けて食べるとなお美味しかったです。しっかりとお肉を味わいたい場合はサーロイン、さっぱり脂身少なめを味わいたい場合はヒレ、というチョイスが良いと思います。付け合わせの野菜、ポテトもガーリックが効いた濃い目の味付けでお肉によく合っていました。
お値段はそれなりにしますが、予約が前日でもわりと簡単にできたことと、味は言うことなしでしたので、ニューヨークに行くなら一度訪れてみていただきたいお店です。
