We dined outdoors, and I bet they’re even better indoors.

We had a very nice time. Thank you. Our waiter was great, I think his name was Ari. Everyone was very polite and they even wished us a happy anniversary with complimentary shots.

Benjamin Prime has done COVID outdoor dinning the right way. Comfortable, protected, and with all the proper safeguards. Dinning here lets you focus on your family/friends and of course the food. Good service backs up the excellent food.

Came here to celebrate my sister’s birthday. We ordered steak for two and prefix lunch. The foods are exceed my expectations! The portion for 3 courses prefix lunch is very generous. The steak for two came with hot plate. There are mignon & sirloin. They are tender and melted in my mouth. Our waiter, Ari is very attentive. Service is top notch! I will definitely come back.

Unfortunately they were over booked so we had to wait over 30 minutes for our reservation. The staff was noticeably frustrated so the service suffered immensely. The Bartender was rude to us because we paid with a credit card while waiting for our table then our waiter mixed up the temperature of our meat so my wife could not eat her meal. We constantly kept having to ask for our waiter because he had the bottle of wine we ordered. We tried to make the best of it but our Valentine's evening was ruined. Not to mention that my wife left there hungry.

I had to wait 45 minutes after my reservation started before I was seated. It felt like they double booked every table, as there were dozens of people around the bar -- all waiting to be seated. I felt like I was at a music concert -- not a dinner date. Will not be coming back again.

The steaks are amazing, but unfortunately that's all they have going for them. I had a reservation at 8:30 pm and was not seated until 9:45!! This was really frustrating - when you make a reservation at a specific time, you do so because that is what works for your plans. I had work the next day very early, so unfortunately we had to leave halfway through and take half of our steaks & desserts to go as it was nearing midnight. All in all we interacted with the server 2 times throughout the meal, we had to stand up and wave to the staff just to get anyone's attention. Bottom line, the steaks are great - if the service was remotely better I would be there every weekend.

excellent food at very fair prices, sadly the whole experience was let down due to poor planning and overbooking. even with reservation, guests had to wait at least 20 minutes, evident by the large crowd at the bar area with nowhere to sit while waiting for their table. since the restaurant was overbooked, and staffing was not adjusted accordingly, there was a noticeable lack of service. I could tell everyone was doing their best, but was simply overwhelmed. the end result was sub-par service; and for a fine dining establishment, there is never an excuse for service that's anything less than 100% attentive. overall experience was still very good, but sadly i cannot say it was 5-stars; extra credit on the playlist though, great music in the background.

Our reservation was for 7PM but we were not seated until 7:50PM. Our food did not arrive until 8:50PM - nearly two hours after our reservation time. The brussels sprouts were entirely too oily and overseasoned. Salad, oysters, steak were delicious but I was so disappointed in the wait time and the lack of manager apology for this that I would never return to this establishment.

Had the Alaskan King Crab, Brussel sprouts, and sea scallop appetizer. The crab was a little soft to crack open but tasted great, Brussel sprouts were the best, scallop appetizer was a bust, way overcooked. The waiter was very good, the longest wait was getting the coats out of the checked area

I started going to Benjamin’s about a year ago. Was very disappointed in my last steakhouse. Benjamin’s was highly recommend by coworkers. From the first visit to my last visit, theT haven’t disappointed. Very professional an caring. . Attentive but not overbearing. The food is superb. Dessert, top notch. Who doesn’t love dessert. If your looking for a great steak, try Benjamin’s.
