Great offensive front desk - makes you wait with a smile; reservation time ignored if you are not a big party ; after a half hour, an offer if a glass of cheap Champaign; manager charmingly disrespectful ; actually quite offensive . Notwithstanding steak was good when we finally got seated upstairs after a 48 minute wait in a Monday. For a good evening, try elsewhere.

Overall an excellent experience. So far, the best steak I’ve had in New York. The food was very good. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was great, except for the noise level which was pretty intense, but bearable.

Possibly the best steak my wife and I have ever eaten! OK, the best... Ricky, our server, was excellent and knowledgeable. Food fantastic, and wine was superb. As NYC steak houses go, this is my new top-pick!

Went for lunch and had the filet mignon and the ny sirloin. Filet mignon was perfect and so soft. We also ordered tuna tartare which was not on the menu but the waiter gladly made that possible. Absolutely great dining experience! Will visit for dinner in the future :)

Our food was delicious, and our server Ricky was outstanding. He was knowledgeable and friendly, related to us as guests well. The steak for two was perfectly cooked, having both some rare and medium rare parts to accommodate both our tastes. Salad and soup were fresh and delicious. Worth the trip and the cost!

Overall a good quality experience. I liked when they brought out the steak for two on a piping hot plate, so hot that you could still brown off some of the rarer pieces if you wished. Waiting staff were great and attentive and I would recommend this restaurant when you’re in town.

The Breakfast was great...the food is always good but unlike lunch and dinner breakfast is quiet and conversation can be had with "indoor voices."

If you need a classy breakfast midtown east Benjamin's is perfect

I've never had steak prepared or taste like this before. The steak had THE perfect sear and the center was just an amazing sight and taste to be witnessed. I will most certainly be back again! Our waiter knew what we expected and wanted with the evening, and made sure we were catered to appropriately. The ambiance was a picture perfect old school steakhouse dining room, that was very welcoming and cozy on a cold November night. We finished our night with some complimentary port, on the house. A perfect way to end our NYC long weekend getaway.

Classic steakhouse with some tables offering more intimate seating than others. Incredibly attentive, professional service. Superlative steak - we shared steak for two (a perfectly aged, marbled and seared porterhouse). Expensive, yes, but perfectly cooked, expertly carved and served. Caesar salad was well constructed and fresh - enough to share. Tiramisu for dessert with fresh whipped cream also top notch.

Mario and Team always deliver a special experience at one of Manhatttan's finest steakhouses. Benjamin's reputation seems to get better and better every year. And with G and GG at the bar, every night is entertaining and catering fantastic hospitality and service to their patrons.
