    Great experience at Benjamin Steakhouse Prime. As soon as we walked in, it was as if they were waiting for us to arrive. They escorted us to our table and the waitstaff team went right to work. They are really a team, sure we had a server assigned to us, but everyone was attentive to our needs. And it was like that for every table. The food was excellent, and drinks were good. We will definitely be back.

    This was my second visit to Benjamin Steakhouse Prime and my experience was outstanding again. We started at the bar - the bartenders were extremely friendly and helped make a great start to our evening. After a few drinks, we transitioned to our table for an amazing meal. Every course was fantastic and we were able to hear each other speak because the atmosphere was festive yet the noise level was quiet. Great wine, great cocktails, and great steaks. What more could you want?

    Benjamin was fair to fine this time around. The scallops and prime salad were notable starters. I had the filet mignon medium well which was a little more well than medium. My party also enjoyed the lobster, sea bass and halibut. The lobster was a little suspicious as it did not appear to be deveined. Otherwise food was good. Service was lacking however, the server was not warm nor very friendly. He was almost rushing us to order while not assisting in our choices after we asked. I also noted on the reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary which was never mentioned! I think I’ll skip this location on my next visit

    Quand nous sommes arrivés, on nous a installés à la dernière table près des toilettes. On a pris juste un plat chacun, un seul était correcte sur les 3. J’ai vu un serveur se laver les mains dans le saut à vin! On n’avait pas terminé la dernière bouchée que l’addition salée était là. Exemple 2 bouteilles d’eau 20€. Attention aux clients qui entrent dans votre restaurant, j’ai beaucoup lecteurs sur tripadvisor. Bonne continuation….

    We had the opportunity to dine at Benjamin Steakhouse Prime, at 23 East 40th Street, on a Friday evening, and we were satisfied. The starters were well presented and a tasteful delight to kick off the dining experience. The Espresso Martini was also nicely done, as many restaurants have not been able to master the mixology of that right combination. It's as good as my very own Espresso Martini. My wife has had the Filet Mignon and recommends that you ask the server for the chef's recommendations for your particular dish. I had the Sirloin steak, which was both tender and perfectly done. Thank you, Chef. We had it with mashed potatoes, which left us asking for something more extraordinary from Benjamins. It wasn't bad; we just thought that mashed potatoes could be better at Benjamins Steakhouse Prime. We also extend special thanks to Sean, General Manager, for greeting us at the door for their accommodations and to Al, our table server, for making us feel right at home throughout the evening. And an exceptional thanks to Ben, whom we met when we left Benjamins Prime that evening. It was a pleasure, and we extended our gratitude for creating an iconic restaurant. So, when in midtown and searching for steak, fantastic service, and a good time, visit Benjamins Steakhouse Prime for that memorable dining experience. Best regards, Rafael
