Basic fare really. I was kind of taken aback. I was expecting somewhat exceptional but got a "decent" steak, some mushrooms and "creamless creamed spinach" which to my amazement was simply sauteed spinach. Why bother with the "creamed"? Bread was lukewarm and stale. STALE BREAD at a $$$$ steakhouse!!
All in all, I would NOT return. Out of the admittedly small sampling of NYC steakhouses where I've eaten, this is by far the most unexceptional of the bunch. Even the creme brulee was mediocre.

Outstanding steak house with outstanding service. My wife & I had the steak for two. It cut like butter, lol. Two sides where creamed spinach & homes fries with Blu cheese.
We had clams casino for appetizers and split cheese cake.

This is the third time that I have had dinner at Benjamin. I love it there! You will always get an excellent meal, the service is outstanding, and a very welcoming environment. Restaurants in NYC, that are not at the level in food quality as Benjamin, but think they are, also have an attitude, where you question yourself if you really should be there. Benjamin Steakhouse makes you feel welcomed and taken care of with a friendly atmosphere. The Captain, makes sure to ask you how you liked your meal and thanks you for coming! We will be back!

せっかくニューヨークに来たのでステーキ食べたいなと思いましたが、ひとり旅、かなりの贅沢もちょっと。ということでランチタイムに行きました。お肉料理は平均40ドル弱。大きさもアメリカにしたら小さめかも知れませんが、日本なら倍くらいお値段しそう。女性なら丁度良いかも。付け合わせに温野菜とベイクドポテト。パンもたくさんバスケットに盛ってあり。
お店も格調高いインテリアで、少し緊張しましたが、程よいサービス加減でした。
ニューヨーク に行かれる予定でしたら候補に入れて良いと思います。グランドセントラル駅から徒歩5分。
肝心のステーキもちろん美味しかったです。

Our dinner was first class all the way! We were sat right on time by the Maitre D. Our waiter was very attentive and nice. The food was good although I would have liked to be able to choose different sizes of steaks for the same cut. I had the filet mignon and it was 11oz, which was a bit too much. I would have liked to see maybe a 6 or 8 and 11 or 12 so as to not waste.

Sides were ok and served "family style", i.e. enough for 2 or 3 people to share. We had the mashed potatoes, delicious, and the mushrooms which were unfortunately, pretty salty.

Desserts were also really good! My wife had a sundae and I had the apple strudel.

All in all, a very nice evening.

Benjamin Steak House is truly a terrific dining experience. Besides the best Filet Mignon and Porterhouse steaks in New York, the service and attention to detail was exceptional. Their slogan "A CUT ABOVE THE REST"is absolutely correct.

Reviews rank it among the best steak houses in New York.
The steak was OK. Bone in Porterhouse. It just wasn't as tender as you'd expect from a dry aged prime piece of beef.
Therefore we were overall disappointed.

Awesome experience. Met our son for dinner as he arrived in town. Food and drinks were wonderful. Owner came over and introduced himself, very nice. At end of the day, it's pricey, but in mid-town Manhattan that's to be expected. A good NY steakhouse.

My husband and I shared steak for two. Quite frankly, we have had better steaks on our grill. My husband enjoyed the raw oysters. The steak fries and creamed spinach was okay. The first bottle of wine we ordered was "out of stock". The 2nd bottle we ordered we got but were told it was the last bottle. I will say the wait staff was great.

Dinner could not have been better! Staff and waiter were very friendly and attentive, but not over bearing. Salads and soups were fresh and delicious. We all ordered the Porterhouse and all came out as requested. Steaks were excellent, bones picked clean. The house hashbrowns with bluecheese crumbles are a must try as well!

Went to Benjamin Steakhouse for my boyfriend's birthday. From the aroma upon arrival, I knew the food was going to be exquisite! The decor/lighting set a romantic feel to make the night just right. Hate to say that I don't eat steak, so I can't really comment on their steaks but according to my boyfriend, this was by far his favorite! (And we've been to many steakhouses) I was pretty hungry so I was really excited to see them bringing out a basket of bread and olive oil/ butter to spread. For appetizers we had The Crab Cake which is actually why I had to write this review it was just amazing!!! For the entrée I had the salmon, asparagus and mash potatoes which was delightful.
When I made reservations through Open Table under "special occasion" I wrote "birthday" without a word or hesitation at the end of our dinner our waiter surprised my boyfriend with a birthday cake. Needless to say I'll be coming back here soon!

Waiter was polite, knowledgeable of menu & atentive to our needs. Mixed drink captian & coke excellent! (more rum than coke), spouse had a cosmo said was good. no appetizers due to time constraints on advise of waiter. Spouse had their filet mignon & i had the ribeye. We shared the creamless spinach & mashed potatoes. Everything was great. My steak was a nice medium cooked & my spouse had hers well done w/their house steak sauce. For dessert we shared their warm apple strudel a la mode. Was light & very tasty. We truly enjoyed our date night at Benjamin's Steakhouse.
