I've been dining at Benito's for 30 years. 30 years later I'm never disappointed. In addition to the menu Benito will also cater to your preferences/dietary requirements. Always an enjoyable experience.
Always an incredible experience excellent from start to finish!
Second time dining with Benito's. The food and service were excellent. Really enjoyed the roasted chicken so much I ordered it again. This entree was flavorful with a nice crisp skin and tender breast. Both salads on the menu were nicely prepared and offered up a lot of flavor. I wanted to try the black sea bass entree but they were offering the red snapper in its place with same preparation. Hopefully the sea bass will be available soon. Coffee and dessert rounded out a very enjoyable dining experience.
The food was fabulous, the drinks well prepared, the wines were remarkable, the service second to none and the atmosphere is great. Never disappointed in all my years of dinning at da Benito’s Ristorante!
da Benito's has been a favorite restaurant of our for close to 30 years now. Each time we go back my wife and I are never disappointed. They service is impeccable, the food is over the top delicious (I particularly enjoy the gondola ravioli my favorite) and the atmosphere is excellent. We particularly enjoy the wine room and the surroundings. Our waiter Lorenzo has been a favorite of mine and we look forward to going back soon.
Benito and Donny have a run a great restaurant and always make you feel welcome and special. if you are looking for a 5 Star restaurant in Central NJ, this is the place to go.
Enjoyable dinner, food and service were excellent and wine by the bottle reasonably priced. We are planning to return soon.
Excellent food and Service! Wait staff was very accommodating to our group.
Hadn't been there in years, but not sure why. We'll be going more often now! Delicious food & wine.
A super restaurant with excellent dinner options, outstanding friendly service (and diners) and a gem in the heart of Union, New Jersey. Authentic and very very good
I can always count on an excellent dinner at Benitos. Service, Food, Wine are always A+
Great says it all.
Loved my dining as Always! The Food is the BEST & the overall experience is Excellent!
I've been there several times and the food on this last visit was OK.
The seafood appetizers were greasy and the seafood entree was better.
Not as outstanding as in previous visits.
I found the experience fantastic from being greeted at the door, to quick seating and great service. The menu and specials choices were more than adequate for any taste. The food was served promptly, hot and fantastic to both the eye and taste. Highly recommend Benito's.
Disappointed by the wait staff. Service was not attentive. Prices like these incur expectations regarding knowledge and concern of waiters.
The wait staff was very attentive and the chef came out twice to greet the diners.
Dinner was delicious, and even though every table was taken, we still received excellent service.
Best restaurant in New Jersey
Our waiter was stressed and hurried My guess....we were there on New Year’s Eve
Always a favorite of ours when we lived in N.J. Unfortunately we’re now a 3 hour drive away, but it was totally worth the ride. Brings back great memories, and the food and service are as excellent as always! My black bass entree special was so succulent and flavorful. A true gem of a restaurant!
Wonderful dinner with friends. The appetizer of pasta with bolognese sauce was outstanding. Everyone else enjoyed the goat cheese salad. Loved the Veal Chop breaded with salad on top. Although the steak dishes were enjoyed, the two steaks were very fatty. The Veal Chop with vegetables was wonderful as well. The lovely touch of cookies and biscotti was enjoyed. Would recommend Da Benito for a great night out. Looking forward to New Year's Eve dinner here....
A great dining experience. The food was fantastic and the service was very professional.
This is consistently one of the finest restaurants in New Jersey and it has been for a long time
Excellent meal in all respects. We love this restaurant. Brought friends for their first time and they loved it too. Roasted peppers and all pasta entrees were perfect. Nice cocktails too. Great hospitality. Bravo
If you want to try some of the best Italian food in the area, and in NJ in general, pay da Benito a visit. Benito has wonderful menu with ever-changing daily specials. Seafood often dominates the main specials, but they also do wonderful steak and veal specials. Not a meat eater? Plenty of nice pasta choices, including the famous 3-cheese ravioli (which isn't on the menu, BTW).
When my wife and I arrived at the restaurant there was no one to greet us, there were waitstaff which seem to be running, and I mean literally running all around the restaurant but no one acknowledged us. Eventually the hostess arrived and showed us to our table. After we sat several waiters came up to us and try to take our drink order seemingly like they didn’t know who had our table, we were also asked several times if they could take our dinner order after we had already placed it. There seems to be an ample amount of help just very unorganized . I guess it’s better than being ignored. We had the stuffed clams and pasta fagoli both were very good. For dinner we had the osso bucco and the strip steak again very well cooked and very good for dessert we shared a fruit Napoleon which again was excellent unfortunately we were finished with with our dessert by the time coffee came. I believe that if we had been seated in a different spot in the restaurant we wouldn’t of seen all the problems with the waitstaff, not terrible but we were seated right by the wait station and we saw and heard all that was going on. We will probably give them another chance, based on their food, but perhaps not on Saturday.
Food and service were fantastic. Our servers were attentive to all things food and beverage and the Maitre D' was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Our only complaint was the noise level, some sound proofing would certainly help and it was difficult to have a conversation at a normal volume and/or to hear each other, even though there was no background music playing.
We will definitely be back, we would likely just rethink timing to avoid some of the volume.
More than likely, this is the best restaurant in New Jersey. The food is second to none. Not just an Italian restaurant. The menu is diverse and the special are amazing. The service and attention are wonderful. Worth every penny.
I had the pleasure of dining here after many years. The food, service and hospitality were excellent. I can't wait to go back on a Saturday evening.
Food was excellent, everything from the appetizer to dessert. The service was good but they seemed to rush us through our meal, even though the restaurant wasn't crowded. Our dinners came before I was able to select the wine!
Excellent food and excellent service. Great value for money.
Expensive but worth it! Service is impeccable. Food is delicious; I have never had a bad meal there. Most beautiful bathroom I have even seen in a restaurant!
Food is always great and service is impeccable highly recommend!
The best restaurant I have ever experienced! The food was excellent and the owner was impeccable!
A restaurant that is always dependable with an "aim to please" staff. A full bar and comfortable atmosphere make da Benito Ristorante even more inviting . Our dinners were cooked perfectly!
Calimari appetizer was very good, Roasted pepper appetizer that was ordered never came to the table, Waiter apologized, Seafood Ravioli had a distinct fish taste, not pleasant. Angel hair pasta with shrimp and tomato sauce was good.
Food was good. Service was excellent. Nice meal and nice evening
We love coming here and have always had a superb meal. The food is cooked with love ❤️ in each and every detail. A favorite of ours.
Exceptional quality ingredients, masterful preparations.
Great restaurant with outstanding food and service
