food was great, service was very upbeat, with appropriate timing. Server was well aware that we were returning to the office post lunch. Empathetic and understanding. Very pleased.

Best steak and chops in town! Consistently excellent food and service. Genuine steakhouse vibe without the macho. Ribeye and rack of lamb are superb! You won't be disapointed!

Best steak ever! Sides were wonderful-we had creamless creamed spinach and asparagus. My teenager who would normally never eat spinach loved it! Even the butter for the bread was awesome! Very nice Thanksgiving experience

Service was not up to usual Benjamin’s standard. Steaks were also not as good as they had been in past. Large noisy group was seated next to us, making it hard to converse.

A simply wonderful lunch at The Benjamin! Bone-in Rib-Eye was generously portioned, perfectly cooked and easily matches that of any other steakhouse in NYC. Service was swift and attentive but not intrusive. Atmosphere is one of casual elegance without being pretentious. It's a can't miss for both business and convivial dining in Midtown. So glad to see the heart of NYC still beats at The Benjamin -- treat yourself!!

We ordered steak for two, which was delicious. I ordered a salad before dinner and my wife ordered broccoli with dinner. He had a glass of wine and both shared a tall bottled of still water. The water was amazing. Our waiter was very attentive but was vocal with his opinion about how we want the steak cooked and rolled his eyes when my wife said that she would take the leftover broccoli home. However, I think he was concerned about where to put the broccoli and reluctantly put it on the table. They were so busy all the way to quickly walking through the restaurant. I don’t think he wanted to follow up by leaving it in the kitchen. It wasn’t a time for that. We ordered dessert, each having crème brûlée. The dessert wasn’t served yet when he put the entire bag of leftovers in front of my wife, which was quite tall. She placed it on the floor instead. I really think it had to do with time constraints.

We ordered the steak for 4 and it was perfect. Servers were really fun and attentive. Our table was upstairs and close to the service door so that was the only negative, but it was secluded and so felt private and quiet. Wedge salad has huge chunks of bacon. Highly recommend the onion rings as a side, perfectly lightly battered. Lobster mac and cheese was also a standout. For potatoes, go for the hash browns. Great wine list, recommend the Turnbull for value and quality.

Service was outstanding, the staff was incredibly friendly and professional. The filet was cooked beautifully, truly a work of art.

However, 2 problems while dining here. First, I believe my date and I were profiled when we came in. We’re on the younger side compared to Benjamin’s typical clientele in the 35-65 age range. As a result, they stuck us upstairs next to a table of 8 high schoolers. Why? Because you wouldn’t put 45 year olds next to that table of high schoolers. But 28 year olds? Why not? It was an awful listening experience, which high schooler’s genitalia is bigger than the latest iPhone, and who started doing the fortnite floss dance in someone else’s face. No one should be subject to that, especially when the majority of the floor level seating was still empty when we arrived at 6:30.

The second issue is that my date found a small bug in her salad. It looked like a small, thin, green caterpillar slowly inching its way across the plate.

My date pointed this out to the staff, and the manager came over and apologized profusely. I don’t hold this against them, it happens.

Overall, I would still come back here. It’s not everyday you get stuck next to a table full of high schoolers celebrating a 15th birthday. But I hope they don’t continue profiling their guests.

Wow. This place absolutely exceeded expectations. Wine list was outstanding - some great wines and great (hard to come by) vintages.

The steaks were hands down one of the best I’ve had in a very long time.

Service was stellar.

Truly amazing.
