I took two colleagues from Maryland, so we ate a variety of dishes. Both said their dishes were great & showed it by absolutely cleaning their plates (for all dishes, appetizer & entree). They had soup, salmon tartare, risotto & short ribs. I ate the crunchy chicken which was great. I had to take a box home only because I had eaten late that afternoon,

First time to visit. Food was delicious, service was good, would certainly go again. Noise level very high at noon on a Sunday, but that's okay if you're not expecting quiet and/or intimate. Small place so do make a reservation. We had one, and without it would have been a 35 minute wait.

I brought my friend from Canada to Benjy's for dinner and he loved it so much that we went to Local Foods for lunch. My friend had the Crunchy Chicken, one of my favorites. I had the Asian salad which was perfectly blended. Keep up the good work, Benjy.

I have always enjoyed Benjy's as one of my favorite restaurants. The new menu is outstanding with unusual and delicious items. I like the focus on local sources. We tried two new dishes--a kale salad that was outstanding and their new salmon main course which was delicious. I can't wait t go back and try some of the other new dishes!

I used to eat at Benjy's regularly when I lived in Houston and made sure to go back on this past visit. The food was great and the muffins before the meal were a unique touch. You can't go wrong with any of the food choices on the menu!

The food and service was good. We only wished they 'd have more light in the room, hard to read a menu , hard to see.Had a better experience at lunch there with day light in the room.

We arrived at our reserved lunch a few minutes behind schedule. It was noticeable that this was not a huge issue due to the restaurant not being fully booked. When we arrived there was nobody at the counter to greet us and the table we had requested for five had not been set up at that point. In the reservation we stated that we would like a quiet table that was not in the aisle or near the kitchen. After about 7 minutes the hostess came to get us and took us to the first table located by the door... in the aisle. I politely asked her for a quieter table which she said was fine, but did not look pleased. We were sat in one of their booths which was a little big for our group, but out of the way. Service and food were okay at best.

It's the Farm to Table that attracted us. Good locally sourced food and prepared in generally a healthy idea. The Kale Caesar salad was just wonderful.

We really enjoyed our evening, the sommelier brought us a beautiful bottle of red wine...dinner was very good and we highly recommend it for any occasion. The bar upstairs was a happening scene and we enjoyed it!

Loved this place. Food was creative, flavorful and fresh. Service was outstanding. I will return. Parking was a little challenging.

This was my second time to Benjy's and I really love the food. I specifically picked Benjy's since their website stated that they were serving their wedge salad. Upon arrival, the staff were amazing and our service was outstanding!!!! Unfortunately, the wedge was not on the menu and instead we went with a 5 spice salad - it was an interesting blend, but was not complimentary to the main dish or appetizer. Just a thought - it seemed a bit too complicated. Will be back soon. =)
