I have been coming here for years. The portions have been steadily decreasing. We ordered steaf for 4 and it was not enough. Usually we have left over. Also Spinach and mushrooms sides seem to have decreased in size. Steak is solid but the portions should be restored.

My wife and I visited Benjamin’s back in 2011 on our first dinner date in NYC and had an amazing meal. A meal we would bring up and talk about for years to come. After 7 years, a wedding and birth of our twins, we made it back last night to celebrate our three year anniversary. Jet was our server and took care of us the entire evening. He was very friendly and prompt to greet us and take our order. We went with the same dish we had last time, their signature dish, the porterhouse for two! It came out sizzling with that familiar smell and tasted even better that we had remembered! To top it off Jet brought out champagne to share in our celebration, we couldn’t have asked for a better night at Benjamin! We will be back again the next time we visit NYC...

Too noisy and not enough light. Also 16 usd for a glass of wine is too much, frankly.

An excellent steakhouse inside the Dylan Hotel. Fine steaks, excellent sides, and, in contrast to many of New York's best-known meat palaces, a genuinely pleasant place to have a meal. The service is professional and friendly; if you want a place where the waiters treat you like an impediment to their reacting the end of their shift, go somewhere else. I highly recommend you add it to your list...,

This restaurant was recommended to us & I am delighted it was. It was spectacular food & service. Also important to note, steak was cooked to your choice without any fuss & arrived at the table exactly as requested. It may not sound like much but that is so important to me & it was refreshing to see a restaurant listen as so many dont. There is so much quality food to choose on the menu steaks/lobster of the highest quality. It was so good we went back the next night!!! I recommend filet mignon & the lobster mac-n-cheese. Delightful. Will definitely be back here & recommending to my friends. Many thanks

Vado in questo ristorante da 10 anni . Personale cordiale , simpatico , ma il rapporto qualità prezzo è notevolmente aumentato !
In 4 persone non si spende mai meno di 600 dollari
Esagerato !
Penso che non ci andrò mai più

Visited on Sunday evening with my wife. We were met at the door on a very rainy day by delightful staff. While our table was center room, we found it easy to have a conversation and enjoyed a steak that ranks up at the top of my list. We ordered Filet and it was done perfectly. The sides were good and made it an overall excellent meal. The creamless creamed spinach was good, but for me, was still spinach. John, our waiter, really knew his business, attentive but not intrusive. My brother was there the night prior and John waited on him as well. We both, brother and I, would recommend John for anyone planning on dining at Benjamin's. If in Manhatten this is a must stop location for me.

素晴らしいステーキでした。
夫婦と、24歳と20歳の息子2人、合計4人で楽しみました。
最初、食べきれるのかどうか半信半疑だったのでsteak for 3をオーダーして食べたところ、すっかりその美味しさに魅了され、
もう一度steak for 3をオーダーして完食しました。
つまり4人で6人前を食べたのです!

翌日、本家本元のPeter Lugerにも行き、ここではsteak for 4を4人で頂きました。
4人の意見は一様にそれぞれやはり甲乙つけがたいクオリティとのことでしたが、
私はBenjamin、妻と次男は引き分け、長男はPeter Lugerに軍配を上げました。

BenjaminのJETの接客がとてもよかったのが、今回のNY旅行のとてもよい思い出になっています。
ごちそうさま、ありがとうございました!

We would give the service more than 5 stars if we could .. you do expect it to be pricey since it is in Manhattan, however, it was worth it because of our overall experience. Would definitely recommend and look forward to eating there again.

Lo consiglio vivamente per una bella cena a NYC, carne pazzesca di altissimo livello, carta dei vini molto valida.
Per chi non ama la carne ampia scelta su piatti di pesce, zuppe e insalate. Mia moglie che ha preso il pesce è rimasta soddisfatta!!
Prezzo adeguato al locale e alla vita di NYC
Sicuramente da provare!

The steaks are definitely worth the price, the sides are overpriced and not quite as good quality. We booked an early reservation on our last day in New York and suffered from waiter boredom service (a waiter with not enough tables to keep him busy so he was constantly checking on us).

This steakhouse is ok in comparison to the others in NYC. The food was ok, nothing extraordinary. Ambiance was ok, perhaps sitting on 2nd floor might have been better. Our server was great, his name was Jet, very accommodating, social and available on hand during our complete dining experience. Prices are best for the pre fix because the quality of the food doesnt pay to order ala carte.

It’s a little pricey but the pre-fix menu was a great deal. Their ribeye with bone in was awesome! Very tender and juicy. Notably, the outside was not overcooked which is a big plus to me. Their creamed spinach was also great, not too creamy but still smooth. The service was ok but I understood it’s quite busy, and I was chatting with my friends so it didn’t really matter. Overall, great steakhouse for food!
