It reminds me of old New York. The wooden floors and wood around the restaurant is elegant. The service is good as is the food, except for the French onion soup. They use muenster cheese and it it runs the soup

Came here for my sister’s 30th birthday. I got the ribeye (medium rare), she got the filet (medium well) and we split the mashed potatoes. My Ribeye was outstanding. Her filet definitely came out well done. Initially our feedback on the doneness of her steak was dismissed, but when I revisited the issue with them, they agreed and offered to buy us a round of drinks. We preferred dessert, and they agreed. I thought they would comp just one of the two, but nope...they comped both. A+++ customer service.

Had a drink at the Steakhouse but then went to the newer Benjamin's (Benjamin Prime) around the corner. The matre-d was nice enough to walk us around the corner and ensure we were seated immediately. Overall, it was a very good experience, great selection of wines by the glass or bottle, tasty and fresh salad and the Porterhouse for 2 was a perfect amount of food. Only drawback was the steak was a bit overdone, we ordered it medium (which they said is pink in the middle) but the NY Strip side was cooked all the way through, don't know why but the Filet side was perfectly cooked (usually it's the opposite). Also had the side of scalloped potatoes which were outstanding. Service was super. Will visit again but probably send the steak back or maybe order it medium-rare, just didn't have enough time to do that this time.

Les indiqué que era cumpleaños de mi esposa. No hubo nada especial. Ni un mínimo detalle.
Quise pagar con tarjeta de débito, indicando que era con firma electrónica. Me dijo el mesero que no tenían ese tipo de terminal.
No volveremos más al Benjamin. 1000 veces iré al Peter Luger.

Pretty typical visit to a quality steak house in NYC. I was a fan of everything generally speaking. For a lunch spot, its nice and quiet, with good service and good food.

Cuando llegamos mal imaginamos que la recomendación sería “normal”. Llegó la ensalada y nos atraparon. Ya para las “Bejamin Home Fríes w/ blue cheese” estábamos emocionados; al llegar los cortes (Rib eye y Surf & Turf) explotamos de emoción. ¡Gran servicio y calidad!

Celebrating my husband getting a new job. Service was not warm and a little aggressive. They got aggravated when we asked for certain pieces of steak since I wanted the more rare pieces. I would’ve rather just served it myself then deal with the server scolding me. The table was also very small that made it uncomfortable to have everything we ordered on the table.

I like the steak at Benjamin better than Peter Luger, I think the taste is better. Location-wise, for visitor in Manhattan, Benjamin also is better located nearby Grand Central Terminal

I've tried all of the Peter Luger knockoffs, and none of the previous ones had really compared to Luger. Benjamin's is at least AS GOOD as Peter Luger. Everything was great. Bacon, Tomato and Onion, Steak for two, Home Fries, dessert was great too. I have 4/5 starts for value since 41st street makes the price a little higher than it should be, but all worth it.

I cannot say enough about how Great this place is. Everyone there from Mgrs, Servers and even the Bathroom attendant is the BEST. I will add I do know the Kitchen staff but they need a huge shout out, they do a BRILLIANT job. Everyone treats u like Family there. The Food is the Best on the planet. Love Ricky and his treatment. I have forged a friendship with him. Funny thing was I sold 2 steak dinners 2 people that came in. I told them the steak for 2 is unreal. They ate it and Loved it. I am your best outside salesman lol. Again Thanks Everyone and see you on my next trip.
