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!

The rib steak was tough. Hard to believe that it was prime. You will feel rushed. The menu is thrust at you within 30 seconds of being seated. A few minutes later, the waiter is asking for your order.

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.

I am never disappointed at Benjamin Steakhouse - the service and food are both outstanding! It was great when the waiter served our "steak for two", placed a piece of filet mignon on our plates and proceeded to "cut" the meat with a spoon.

This has been the fourth time that my friend and I have traveled from Boston on a museum trip and dined at the Benjamin. We visit about every six month. Our waiter, Ricky, has always recognized us and made it a cheerful and special experience. We place ourselves in his capable hands and wined and dined with great satisfaction. We have also enjoyed talking with other diners near our table and have often shared a laugh. We have nothing but good things to say and would recommend the Benjamin to any one!

Food reviews on line were much better than what I experienced. Steak quality was actually lacking of the ribeye that I had. Service was slow, and quite frankly I had to ask to have my water refilled twice during the dinner. That should never happen.

Food and atmosphere was awesome. We enjoyed ourselves so much.The only thing I would like to request is your selection on our table.We are Japanese and there seems to be four or five Japanese groups around our table, so we always had to take care of what we were taking about so that our conversation should not be heard by other groups.

Arrived early for our booking to be offered a table straight away. Great service from very attentive staff. The steaks are amazing!!! Probably best steaks I've ever had. The steak for two lovely. A must visit venue but beware it isn't cheap but well worth spoiling yourself for that special occasion.

except mixed drinks should have alcohol. don't mind paying $15-16 for a cocktail but put alcohol in the drink. 2 Margaritas combined might have 1 ounce of liquor if that
