Good steakhouse food. Wider range of appetizers and sides than your typical steakhouse.

Everything you want in a NYC steakhouse experience. The ambience was terrific and not too loud. Great bar scene and wonderful service. Now, for the food. Really quality appetizers and sides. You can tell they took their time in getting those right. And as for the steaks, my typical order is bone-in rib eye and these guys certainly delivered. Perfectly medium rare. Just a real quality meal. On top of that, we were served a complimentary round of delicious limoncello. That helped us digest the pecan pie! Can't say enough about this place. I had heard great things, but experiencing it is different. One of the best, if not THE best steakhouse in NYC.

Benjamin Prime continues to be an unforgettable dining experience. Fantastic service, expertly prepared food and a clean professional ambiance.
Try the new chopped tomato and onion preparation, lots of fun and well you cannot go wrong with the porterhouse steak, that may be the best seared steak in all New York.

We met their for a business dinner... our table was in the middle of the room... it was very loud and very difficult to conduct a conversation. We sat for about 15 minutes before we received initial water and then about another 15 before we were able to order a cocktail/drinks. The waiter took our partial food order and then attended to another table before coming back to us... I understand that he is busy but he should not have left us in the middle of asking our order..
the steaks were good however they were not the temperature desired and dry... it appeared that the food had been sitting for a while before it was being served to us. We ordered different sides and by default they gave everyone a bit of the sides without asking whether we would like some or not ie.. one person doesn't eat mushrooms but they were put on her plate without asking... the waiters just seemed very rushed and for the amount of money i'm paying for the dinner I would like to ask for dedicated service just like other customers received

Loved the Porterhouse plate, the meat was perfectly grilled to our taste. Perhaps the French fries could have been nicer. I personally prefer a finer cut chip that has a home made feel. The complimentary after dinner drink was a lovely gesture we enjoyed. Thank you.

Even with all the great steakhouse competition in New York, I think Benjamin-Prime (and their sister restaurant, Benjamin Steakhouse) are the best! Terrific menu, expertly prepared, with fantastic service, and caring management. Highly recommended.

Over rated! I had shrimp which was rubbery & chewy. My husband had a steak which was good, but not memorable. Just an average experience overall. Wouldn’t go back. There are other steak houses in Manhattan with better ambience, more extensive menu, and better ambience.

My wife and I have dined at Benjamin's once before and that dinner was as enjoyable as this. We live six hours away so the opportunity to dine at Benjamin's does not come along often. As for cost, if you are concerned about the cost, you are dining in the wrong place. It really is an overall experience, not just a dinner.

Another productive and prosperous business meeting at Benjamin Prime. This place always delivers good energy, amazing food and impeccable service. My Clients always leave impressed and that certainly helps with closing the deal. I’ve been a fan since the day they opened. I would recommend this place to anyone taking their Clients out for a business meal.

Visited Benjamin’s Steakhouse in the past and thought it was amazing! This “Prime” location was a first. It was a polite and professional checkin along with quick seating. Upon being seated we were asked on our preference of water and then provided with a drink menu. We ordered a Martini, two glasses of wine, and a cocktail. One glass of moscato came out in a champagne flute, and the cocktail came out in what appeared to be a faux crystal standard tall glass as opposed to short cocktail glass. (It May seem like I’m splitting hairs but if you go to Mastros at the same price, they will pay attention to the detail). We all ordered the Filet Mignon along with 3 sides of: Creamless Creamed Spinach (Meh), Brussels Sprouts (AMAZING), and Lobster MAC n Cheese (it was ok). The steaks came out properly cooked but I have never been so UNDERWHELMED in my life. Mine was bland, no real taste, and I think a tell tale sign of this was that they had steak sauce on the table prior to arriving. We should have run as that should never be needed. For a $58 steak we should be drooling but not only did I only eat half, but everyone else at my table only finished a portion. That’s FAR from the standard at an upscale steakhouse. In the end they did remember that I was celebrating an anniversary for my friends anniversary and they did bring out a complimentary dessert for them which was nice, but again this is a standard when comparing it to Mastros! Overall, I will not head back to this steakhouse; when you spend $600 for a party of 4 you expect to be blown away. Although the service was decent and they were extremely nice I can’t see this exact establishment remaining with the quality of food and lack of drink/glass knowledge. Lastly, for a steakhouse you expect prime cuts of meat as an option: No Japanese Wagyu, rather Americans wagyu (what?!). It was quite limited and a significant attempt to copy Mastros or something similar. We didn’t complain and ultimately accepted the fate of dinner
