    This was my first time dinning at Benjamin’s. Definitely my kind of place, old school family vibe, the entire staff from hostess to the bartenders to the waiiters were excellent. Food was outstanding and much better than a chain steakhouse. Will definitely return next time I am in NYC.

    Mom and 15 year old son night in NYC from NJ. He ordered the NY sirloin, potatoes, and creamed spinach and said it was amazing! Staff was wonderful and attentive. We had a memorable night!

    Went on V-day dinner, food was good. Steak was delish. The cream spinach was great but small portion imo. Would go again. Maybe order two cream spinach next time. Don’t go on price fixe nights for restaurent like this. Service felt rushed and felt like the restaurant was going for fast turning of tables for Valentine’s Day.

    Sirloin steak was cooked according to my request (medium rare plus) resulting in a very juicy steak. However, there was some gristle in the steak. The steak fries were out of this world. The cheesecake was too sweet. Would not order again

    Overall my wife and I had an amazing experience. The meal, the service, and the vibe was great. My complaint is that the waiter didn't bring my change back. Had he done that, I was going to tell him how much I appreciated his attentiveness and matched the change for his tip.

    Ate off the Restaurant Week menu. Steak and mashed potatoes were very good. We didn’t love the creamless creamed spinach but think that’s more about personal preferences. We had the pleasure of having Walter as our waiter and he was fantastic. We were there on a Friday night and it was packed and quite loud, as with many popular restaurants in the city on a Friday night. Entire staff was orchestrated and moved in and around guests beautifully to quickly step in and refill drinks, clear plates, etc. Lots of attention to detail, which we appreciated.

    Went for restaurant week. Had a martini at the bar that was made to perfection. Then our server Mike went above and beyond to make our evening great. We went with the NY Strip that was delish and cooked to our desired temp (Med rare for my guest and Med for me). Great night!

    Food wasn’t as good as I expected. Cesar salad was wilted and brown. Definitely not fresh. Ribeye and sea bass were ok. Benjamin potatoes and pecan pie were the best things we ate.

    Gorgeous old school New York interior that really adds to the ambience. Food was excellent- we went for restaurant week and will absolutely be back. Steaks were perfectly prepared and while served on a sizzling plate- they did not end up overcooked. Really perfect with lovely presentation. Sides of spinach and potatoes were perfect accompaniments. The starters (tomato/mozz and calamari) were a little lack luster but adequate and service was a bit rushed but they were quite busy and the overall experience was a delight and would certainly return for more of the menu.

    I will start my review by saying this was one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. However, tonight the food was disappointing. More concerning, I experienced discrimination by a gentleman that may have been the owner. I was asked to remove my hat while dining, which I respectfully agreed to do. However, I noticed about 30 minutes later that this gentleman was speaking with someone else dining at a different table who was wearing a hat. I am no expert on body language- but it was clear that their conversation did not involve a hat removal request. How is it OK to ask some people to remove their hat while dining and not others? Is this considered a form of discrimination? You can be the judge. I won’t be back.

    Well, this was my 2nd visit in a week apart from each other so that must says a lot. This time i sat @ the bar with the awesome bartender “G” an those who know him best he always give you outstanding service, Johnny always checked in to make sure i was doing good an we conversed as always about life & family. Today! I had the Mac& 🧀 with 🍤 as an entree an the combination together was so delicious an fulfilling. I wanna get back to the staff because they are what makes Benjamin’s Steakhouse a class act, every good business starts with a leader an Johnny has definitely mastered that. As I stated before you go for the food but you stay for the vibes, for a Monday the place was nice a chilled a the staff made the company even better. Keep up the good work guys you will always be #1 in my book.

    My friend and I did restaurant week here. Our waiter was very sweet and personable. The table was in an uncomfortable spot at the top of the stairs in a narrow walkway. Food wise, we had the Buffalo Mozzarella and had to add our own balsamic as it comes out undressed. We each had the sirloin, which was perfectly cooked. He had the home fries, which were not well seasoned, and he had to request ketchup. I had the mashed potatoes, which were creamy but could have used a spice or butter. We shared the cheesecake and chocolate mousse desserts, which were very good.

    The service was atrocious from start to finish. We never could find a server and waited 40 minutes for someone to show up and by then we had gotten so tired that we just asked for our desserts to go and the check, which took another 25 minutes. We had to continually try and flag people down and ended up getting up from our seat and walking over to the 3 servers who were standing around talking to each other simply to ask for our check. To which they all responded with an attitude. This is over an hour of pure “sitting and waiting time”, not even dining. A waiter then ran after us out of the restaurant on the sidewalk and demanded we give him back our bag of leftovers? He told us “they weren’t ours, sorry I gave you the wrong bag”…they were ours, like a normal adult person, I always check the bag before leaving a restaurant with leftovers, and I had already checked this bag. For reference, we were sitting all the way upstairs and this was a waiter working upstairs. Meaning he ran down an entire staircase, through the entire main entrance and to us down the street on the sidewalk. But we were so shocked and ready to be done with this place that we literally just handed them over so we could just leave. It was the most bizarre thing I’ve ever experienced at a restaurant. The food was excellent so that was its saving grace. But never in my life have I had a server chase me down and demand food back that I already paid for. So so weird.
