It was really hospitable, we are happy that accidentally we came into the original location that provided to us this classy vibe of being in a place, which is about traditions of good steaks and time you spend in those places. our waiter DIDI just added another 5 stars for our evening by being always in time, providing jokes, some history of the restoration and being always responsive to our needs. Even if it is a place near home and we eat outside each evening this one become exceptional experience🤞💪👌

NY steak joint, what you would expect. A bit dated, not in a good way. Very fine steaks, marginal sides, pushy but accommodating waiter.

The quality of the food was far below average. My friend and I had the worst steak we ever ate in our life. Average meat quality and poor seasoning. The side dishes were also average. Utterly disappointing

The staff strike the perfect balance of service and authority: their recommendations, when asked, were 100% reliable.
This room is one of the all-time classic NYC spots, exuding an “Under Old Management “ charm.
And both of us feel that when it come to steak, Benjamin’s is the sine qua non, absolute best of the best.
Btw — their cocktails are great too: they’ve got several variations of old fashioned that are a real treat, each.
Oh, and theirs is definitely one of the better wine lists in town.
A perfect night!

Attention to detail and good care towards diners puts this steak restaurant above others. While I wouldn't call this restaurant bang for your buck, it is still reasonably priced and the meat is excellent.

Came here for four year anniversary dinner with our aunt. Jonny our waiter was lovely, polite and he was EXTREMELY attentive. The manager chatted with us for a while and made us feel very special tonight. The Ambiance was so relaxing and calm unlike typical LOUD steakhouses. This was a pleasure. Our wine was superb and the FOOD was just incredible. We go to steakhouses All the time on LI and this blew them all out of the park. The seafood tower was delicious and fresh, and the porterhouse Was INCREDIBLE!!! I was completely blown away. Even my cappuccino was wonderful and tiramisu dessert. The creamless cream spinach was out of this world!!! And so was the home fries with blue cheese (WOW). We are definitely coming back ASAP for another amazing, delicious evening !!!! Welcome back Benjamin’s, good luck post covid!

Benjamin Steakhouse is by far the best steakhouse in New York City! Their food is outstanding, their service impeccable and every single member of the staff welcomes you with a warm smile, great attention to detail and care.

Absolutely delicious porterhouse- and surf and turf! Made our birthday dinner very special. John our waiter, was wonderful. Our favorite steakhouse in Manhattan. It’s on E41 between Park and Madison. Make sure you come to this one. There are many photos of notable people in the front of the restaurant who have been here such as Tiger Woods, Kim Kardashian, and Bill Murray. Very warm, intimate atmosphere and the tables were socially distanced— lots of room. It’s got the culinary touch of Peter Luger, yet you can use credit cards and with a reservation, you are seated immediately.

There wasn’t much to choose from when it came to open restaurant. I think the price did not meet the quality at all. I think meal (king crab legs) were NOT that great. The meal was a 2 out of 5 stars.

Don’t see myself having a reason to return by myself of with colleges.
