Junior sirloin was a little tough. Petite filet was very good. Staffs/service was excellent make us feel welcome even during Restaurant Week.

We came for Restaurant Week to explore. We were impressed with the food & service.
Ambiance was as expected though the tables were a bit tight. Parking is tough as expected but we would definitely return & recommend to friends!!

I visited here to have lunch during Restaurant Week. The aging beef is the tastiest I've ever eaten. The best steakhouse in NYC!

The 2lb stuffed lobster had very little meat and and even less crab stuffing for the $25 up-charge. A request for the meat to be taken out of the shell was not honored. The worst lobster I've had in NYC. Fellow diners enjoyed the steak, which was prepared as requested.

Do not look at the menu and assume that is what you can order. This place is misleading in that you are given a very small menu and not the same menu listed on their site. If you want cheap food this is your place. That being said the waiter and the host were really nice.

foods was great. I was this restaurant for restaurant week dinner. course is amazing. calamari was little salty but tasty. steak was awesome. quite salty for me but well made. I wish it was less salty then I could add pepper or salt as much as I need.
Only one problem was noise. even it’s weekday restaurant was packed and really noisy. I had to speak loudly and couldn’t stay long.
But overall recommend

A bit disappointing as I arrived early for our reservation and hoped to relax at the bar for a drink. The bar was not crowded two people eating separately requiring no attention by the bartender and two couples who had their drinks and were in the middle of conversation. Myself he didn’t even approach us. We were then taken to our table upstairs and ordered drinks and our meal. The service was just ok; rather rushed, the staff was abrupt and basically unpleasant. I had ordered from the special Restaurant Week menu and my husband ordered from the regular menu. My petite filet mignon was excellent, veggies were great, the steak from the regular menu was inferior. We were very surprised at this given the restaurant business was literally crippled due to COVID; one would expect a more upbeat experience and much better attention and service. The vibe and overall tone in the restaurant was unwelcoming. It’s unfortunate because my meal was very good yet all else was lacking.

Did not like the service.
They were pushing us to eat too fast.
We did not even vent through the half of the salad when the main dish arrived…
For the restaurant of this caliber it’s not acceptable !
Server just put the plate with the main dish on a table in front of us and left!
No apologies no explanations…???

First time diners, and Benjamin did not disappoint. The food was excellent, and the portions for restaurant week were more than I expected. The staff was attentive and friendly. We had an issue with the waiter not providing separate checks after asking several times, but he corrected in the end. We would definitely go back for another great steak dinner.

Porterhouse for three, best steak ever. Beautiful room, tables well spaced.Asparagus so thick and tough even a steak knife couldn’t cut it. Went in expecting cting the prices to be high but $10 apiece for sparkling or flat ware seemed truly excessive.

Hands down best Steak House in Manhattan and, in my opinion as Million Mile Flyer, anywhere in the USA! Inside Hint: Get the Bacon Appetizer! But don't take my word for it, go try it for yourself... fast as you can! you won't regret it! Cheers-
