Service is great. Food is DELICIOUS. Ambiance is pretty and romantic in the evening hours. This restaurant is expensive and worth the money. If money is no issue for you then it’s great for lunch and dinner. Otherwise it’s a great restaurant for occasions. I’ve been here twice within the past 2 months and have not been disappointed. As an idea, price could run anywhere from $200-$300 or more for two people. Depends on what you have obviously. More

Dined with a group of 9 for a business dinner. From the moment we arrived until last drinks we were treated with excellent service and food. All except one person ordered the porterhouse steak and we were all pleased with the quality of beef and the excellent preparation on the cook. Our server Al was always available for anything we needed. And his service was impeccable. We ordered two bottles of wine and cocktails and the manager sent complimentary limoncello and port to our table. I will definitely be back to this restaurant again.

Ben and Jack's is the magnificent pearl in a sea of NYC steakhouse oysters. My wife and I have been going there for our anniversary, special occasion parties, and for a romantic night out since discovering it in 2006. The staff is exceptional and could not be more solicitous. The slight alterations of the menu show that not only do they hold to their roots and traditions, but can also adapt and adjust to a 2020 clientele. After posting some pictures and descriptions through social media we had a bunch of friends ask for the address, so I'd recommend getting there soon!!! More

We really enjoyed a birthday dinner for my son the other night. Everything was delicious - the appetizer selection is almost too good and such varied choices. Standouts are: zucchini, cauliflower, meatballs, and arancini although my granddaughter thought the butternut squash was too strong a presence. I thought they were delicious - the honey is genius. And the roasted cauliflower! The raisins, almonds, and mascarpone raise cauliflower to an entirely new level. Pastas were delicious. I don't care for the skin on eggplant so that's the only thing I didn't love 100% although it was perfectly cooked, the sauce was delicious, and the mozzarella fresh and delicious. I must ask what the flavor was in the olive oil cake - my daughter in law thought lemon, I thought Sambuca or a combination. We live nearby and will be back again and again. More

Discover Midtown East

If you’re looking for a perfect neighborhood for a power lunch, look no further. As a hub of world media, Midtown East is one of the most commercial areas of NYC, and you can find a meal worthy of a mogul. Scattered between Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building are steakhouses surrounded with Sinatra lore, classic cocktail bars, and other timeless institutions. On the casual side, some of the city’s best food trucks and Halal carts prowl the streets, slinging deliciously affordable options to tourists and workers each day.
