There are a lot of steak restaurants in NY; this one is good but not top of my list. We were greeted nicely and our table was fine. Drink service could have been better.
The steak knives are beautiful wood and metal; but they are not sharpened well enough for their larger steaks. I would recommend the filet, perfectly prepared. They also had veal chops and rack of lamb options as well as fish and seafood.

Food, atmosphere and most of all service was top notch and probably the best I’ve had from any please I’ve been. We had a 10:45 reservation and actually was running late and they still provided amazing food and service without seeming irritated at all by the late arrival (kitchen closes at 11). I will definitely make it a dinner stop every time I visit NYC.

Hands down the best steak I have ever had the pleasure of eating. My daughter and I came here while on a girls weekend in NYC and everything from apps to dessert was pure perfection. It is pricey but totally worth it.

My new favourite steak house in New York - it was that good!

My seafood starter was a very generous size, very fresh and great flavour. The New York cut sirloin was perfectly cooked, tender and a great taste.

Service was excellent including a couple of complimentary ports.

For wine lovers they do have a BYO corkage policy at $45/bottle.

The whole night was wonderful.

Great place to visit if you are in New York. Love their steak.
Staff is really friendly and they know how to treat a customer
the only down side was that the space between the tables are quite close
so sometimes the servers bump into table or chair. Its a fancy crowded
restaurant so I could take it into consideration

Enjoyed the Filet and the Brussel Sprouts were the best I’ve had anywhere. The Ribeye had almost too much fat in it, but was still good.
A little disappointed in that this was a birthday celebration, yet the restaurant did nothing to acknowledge it.

At least two things are needed for a great steakhouse restaurant; great food and perfect service. Benjamin has both along with a wonderful atmosphere, an amazing bonus!

My wife and I make sure we visit Benjamin Steakhouse monthly if not more often.

A bit disappointed overall. Ate one other time at the Benjamin for New Years a few years ago and had very fond memories of the night, everything was great. Was looking forward to trying the Benjamin Prime with some friends and came away saying it was just ok, not good enough in the competitive world of NY streak houses charging top dollar. The bone in rib eye was over salted, hiding the potential flavor of the aged beef. It was also not seared quite enough and the cut seemed too thin, certainly not the 22oz cut I expected. Not bad but not the wow factor I was looking for. Most at the table thought the cocktails weren’t great, mine needed more vodka, seemed a measured pour, not what I expect at a top steak restaurant, expect strong well crafted drinks. The service was good, the room nice, the caeser salad good, good fries, pathetic loaded potato. That’s it! Regards. Ned.

My wife and I now are regulars at Benjamin Prime! We are treated as family as all patrons are treated. Service was again simply awesome, and the food was perfect, we had rib eye steak. Couldn't finish it all, so again we took home a :doggy bag,”

Sean, the manger treats all new comers and regulars as dear friends – really a good feeling. He insures that details matter.

We were seated promptly by a friendly host. We were given our choice of table. The waiter and wait staff were attentive and friendly. However I ordered a filet cooked medium and it was rare, red in the middle. I would expect better from a steak house of this caliber. The mashed potatoes were excellent, but my husband ordered hash brown potatoes that had an odd seasoning and they were unappealing. It is best not to mess with hash browns by getting too creative. Hash brown potatoes are fine as they are and do not need new seasonings. Our wines were very good and so was the cheesecake dessert. We would go back as it was a pleasant dining experience, but I would stress that my steak be cooked to my request. I don't like to send steak back as what usually happens is that they recook the same steak and then it is dried out.
