Always reliable. Good steak, good meal. A little bit cold, though. We did not stay more than 1.5 hours.

Benjamin’s never disappoints for special occasion dining. Food (Canadian bacon appetizer, crab appetizer, steak for 3 and tuna) was delicious and the cocktails were spot on. We were initially limited to 90 min her Covid protocols, but were allowed to stay until close (so we ordered a nightcap). Staff is hardworking and pleasant. Great dining experience.

What a great spot! They have outdoor seating set up that had us feeling safe and comfortable during our December meal amidst a pandemic. The waiter and maître d were so friendly and accommodating. We started with oysters, then my partner had the filet and I had the bone in rib eye - both cooked impeccably and tasted incredible. We had a side of the mashed potatoes and some of the best roasted Brussel sprouts I've ever enjoyed.

This was an amazing dining experience and Benjamin Steakhouse Prime has made their restaurant feel welcoming, warm, and safely socially distant. I can't wait to return again some day!

Ourdoor dining during winter months is a challenge and an adventure, but I couldn't be happier with Benjamin Prime's setup. The open curbside pavilion allows plenty of circulation to comply with health standards. The use of clear plexiglass partitions between tables, as well as the height of the structure, makes everything feel roomy (many other establishments feel like you're boxed into a cubicle with solid dividers and low ceilings). Lastly, the heaters do a great job of keeping the space warm and comfortable to dine in a sweater on an evening in the upper 30s.

Beyond the environment, the food and service were spot on. Great food, cordial staff (I believe our server was named Val, and he took excellent care of us!). Would definitely return here in the colder months and beyond.

This place was amazing! The service was too notch and that is saying a lot since everything had to be out doors. Our seats were under heaters and the servers did the best they could to keep us warm and fed! Lol! The staff all helped us celebrate my recent engagement and went out of their way to make us feel special. The manager went out of his way to check on us, and even send over shots of lemeonchello to celebrate. Oh and the food- to die for. Beat steak I have ever had!

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Benjamin Prime. We had dinner on a Friday night (when it was 30 degrees out). The staff was amazing and unbelievably accommodating. We will absolutely return and we have already recommended the restaurant to friends and family.

I've had the fortune to visit Benjamin Prime on numerous occasions for the over years and I'll continue to return in the future for the simple reason that they provide some of the best steak cuts in the city, even better than Peter Lugars if I dare say so. Unlike P.L., Benjamin Prime and Benjamin Steakhouse both accept credit cards and they also have very pleasant staff members who man the tables. Keep up the great work.

Prime is a great offshoot of the already incredible Benjamin's Steakhouse. The staff took tremendous care to ensure our indoor dining experience (they offer outdoor as well) was safe and up to the high bar you'd expect from what I consider the top steakhouse in NYC. Can't wait for the original to reopen, but would go here in a heartbeat.

Btw - The wine list is too incredible not to call out. The Tignanello paired perfectly with the meal.

The quintessential New York steak house. Excellent service and hospitality from front desk, to management, to wait staff. Food was delicious and everything came out perfectly. Their outdoor patio was perfectly heated on a cold rainy night and was tastefully decorated for Christmas. A 5/5 and would return any time for a special night in the city.
