We ate outside in their sidewalk (COVID) tent. There's plenty of room and even on this rather cold rainy night, the tent kept us dry and warm enough to feel safe. There's a slight breeze as the tent is open on each (long) end, and the occasional foot traffic didn't bother us.

Benjamin's steaks are very good. I had a bone-in ribeye, which is always my favorite. I asked for it medium rare with a bit of a char on the outside. The kitchen did not disappoint one bit. And since the waiter saw I was debating between a glass of Cabernet vs. the Petite Syrah, he brought me a taste of both to help me make up my mind. Very nice touch (I chose the PS). Service remained attentive throughout.

I was lucky not to have to pay for this dinner, but the host casually commented that the bill was "very reasonable" for what we had. I've been to The Benjamin several times before COVID, and while the outdoor atmosphere (tent) isn't like it is inside, the experience was as good as can be.

This was the second time dining in two months. The first time in August I have no complaints. The service was excellent and the food was great. This time around the service was slower. It was over 40 minutes between the app and main course. The chocolate molten cake was over cooked so it was solid. The steak orders were not correct. We didn’t complain since we were too busy enjoying our business lunch but we made mental note to think twice next time around. It was probably one of those off moments.

Food mediocre. Huge disappointment. Lovely maitre d' and excellent server.
Ambiance outside very pleasant although there was a large party of 8-10 nearby who were very noisy. But that happens often on a Sat night. Big issue is the food. They need a new chef. Prices are high and should be of quality of other steakhouses but food (and drink pours) do not compare to Spark's on East 46th.

I have been dining at Benjamin’s for many occasions in the past and I had nothing but a great impression, but this time was unexpectedly disappointing. I ordered the Power Lunch for me and my guest. Both of our Sirloin steaks were very thin, tough to cut (even with the steak knives), very well done although we both ordered “medium”. I also requested a candle to celebrate my guest’s birthday in a Memo of Open Table reservation and I called ahead around 11:40 to confirm it. First, they couldn’t find my reservation, then confirmed it and the birthday request as well. When we got there, we were brought to the small table right near the entrance where there was notably the busiest traffic of passers-by and staff, so we requested to change the table a little far away from the entrance out of many empty tables. In addition to the very disappointing main course, my guest’s desert didn’t have a candle.

Dinner was fabulous. They do a great job with outdoor dining and steak is completely on par with Lugars without having to go to Brooklyn. I will be back

Had a quick last minute date night with my boyfriend, we were going to go to STK near by but we didn’t like the vibe. Even though we were dressed super casually, the staff was very welcoming and accommodating as soon as we walked in. It’s much more relaxed, quiet and dark at Benjamin. Highly recommended the crab cakes, thick cut bacon, Porterhouse for 2, Brussels sprouts and cheesecake for dessert!

As usual, Benjamin Prime never disappoints! We were fortunate to be one of the first people for indoor dining and the restaurant took all the necessary precautions to make the experience safe and pleasurable. Without a doubt the best steakhouse in the city - pre or post pandemic. The staff treats you like a FAMILY and goes above and beyond to provide one of the best dining experiences you can have. All the best of luck to Benjamin Prime for future success.

I bought a dear friend out to lunch to a good New York Steakhouse. I had never been to Benjamin Steakhouse Prime before. We were thinking of the Price Fixed $39 lunch but I really wanted to sample what this restaurant really had to offer. We had 2 glasses of very nice red wine. The Porterhouse Steak for two wish home fries and spinach which was as good as it gets. Terrific! My former Boss had an appetizer bacon and tomato salad which was wonderful. I had the lobster bisque which was very good but the oyster cracker were a little stale. We had coffee and split a piece of key lime Pie for desert. The pie was a little old. We chalked in up to the lack of business during the pandemic. I spend a lot of money for this lunch and it was worth every penny. We both will go back again. Great steak!!!
