    Visited for our Wedding Anniversary meal as we have been before and had a fantastic experience. The service, food, drink and atmosphere were excellent and for us possibly the best steaks we have had. The staff who waited on us were very attentive and went out of their way to ensure we had a great evening. It’s is a top end restaurant so expect to pay more, but you do get what you pay for.

    The ambience and staff were amazing in every way. Attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very good, my only disappointment was we asked for rare steak for 2 and it was not bleu ( like Lugers) but closer to medium rare. I typically reinforce we want it rare, ie cold in the middle, blood red. But did not this time, so can not fully blame Benjamin’s. The tuna tartare, salad, sides, drinks were all fantastic. Quality of steak was top notch, and our server was charming.

    This steakhouse was phenomenal! We dined there on Thanksgiving evening and they had the most delicious Thanksgiving Day dinner and outstanding service! My teenage kids had steaks and they were amazing as well. If you are looking for a high quality, elegant dinner, then this would be the place!

    Thanksgiving special was ok. Nothing to brag about. My husband's filet mignon was so badly burnt on the outside he could hardly cut it. Won't go back - nor with the money.

    Service was good but the Thanksgiving Entree was horrible. Turkey was very dry, gravy tasted like spit (worst I’ve ever had) and the stuffing had an extremely mushy texture. Please get the steak and not the Thanksgiving meal. I would never pay so much to get such a disappointing meal.

    Other than the check in everything else was good. Quite chaotic check in. Table not ready so they had us stand by the bar with several parties already waiting as well so it was quite crowded in small bar area and i feel bad for the patrons there. Once seated however it was smooth sailing. Service fast and friendly. Drinks strong. Food delicious

    This was our third year at The Benjamin for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, it was the first year that they overbooked and we were informed as such the moment we sat down, our choices were limited and we felt rushed. This was particularly disappointing on a special day. The food is always amazing though and our waiter tried his best to make up for our rough start. I would still recommend The Benjamin, but maybe not on a holiday.

    Outrageously delicious and generously sized piece of filet. Had it cooked rare and it absolutely melted in my mouth. Not cheap, but if you’re going to have an expensive steak, this place is as good as any. Nice that they offered half bottles of wine too, which allowed me to enjoy some good wine with the steak without having to break the bank. Extremely (almost too much so) attentive service. Not trying to be innovative here— it’s a formulaic steakhouse, but done extremely well.

    Great steak! Always loved their butter and whipped cream. The asparagus was good but we got only 6 pieces for $15 or so. They were the most expensive asparagus ever ate! But the service was good and it’s worth going there for nice dinner.

    Elvis gave us an excellent meal experience. Knowledgeable and patient as we were having business discussions. Never felt rushed. Appreciated he asked if we wanted more bottles /sparkling water for the table vs. just continuing to bring. We ordered steak for 4 and it was one of the best steak! Cream-less of spinach, super. Benjamin’s salad for 2, excellent!

    We were visiting New York from Bermuda and were really looking forward to a New York steak and this was highly recommended from a colleague. We opted for the Porterhouse steak for two with two sides. We did not want a starter as we wanted to save ourselves for the steak and we decided to hold off on drinking alcohol until after having the steak. We feel like because of this they wanted to serve us very quickly to free up the table. I had never been to a restaurant before where I was out of the door in 40 minutes from sitting down. Maybe that is what is considered great service to be efficient but we had our plates taken away before we both finished our food which was quite disappointing. We had looked forward to a nice evening out and to be honest we had a better experience in other restaurants where you could sit and enjoy your food.

    Beautiful establishment. Met a dear friend there, and he was at bar when I arrived. Staff made it a bit difficult to move from bar to table. We paid the bar tab and waited like they told us to and no one ever came to show us our table. Finally I went to the hostess and she let her team know “the guy with the hat is ready”. After seated, the buzzer was lovely to get us water, menus, set up at our table. We were waiting to order drinks, and our waiter didn’t show up for almost 20 minutes. We watched the table next to us order drinks and get served before us, when they sat down 10 minutes after us. Then the waiter came over and said “you ready to order”…usually it’s standard to at least get us a cocktail first. But we went ahead and ordered our martini at the same time as steak and sides. Took another 10+ minutes to get the drink. And the steak was an amazing cut and delicious flavor, but we ordered medium rare and it was mostly light pink though our, very little deep red. I frequent nyc steakhouses often enough, and I would consider that to be medium. It still tasted good, but I wouldn’t say it was cooked to our order. My friend then wanted a beer but the way it was presented just didn’t feel welcoming or sincere “do you want a beer menu or I can just get you a lager”. I said, let’s just get the check. We went elsewhere for a proper cocktail. It’s decent but less than great in comparison to its fellow nyc steakhouse cults.
