    Food was wonderful! Atmosphere very inviting. Music playing was slightly loud fir a nice steakhouse, I thought. We ordered from restaurant week menu. Our waiter was not very friendly at all. This was only part of the experience lacking. I would dine again (on hopes of a more engaging waiter). We dined early so not crowded at all. Had caesar salad, filet mignon, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach and cheesecake. All delicious!!!

    One of the new waiter was awful. He was very bad attitude. He aggressively placed a bottle of water on the table. He looked mad. We went there several times. Service isn’t what it used to be. We were really disappointed…

    I am going to consider it was restaurant week and too many people and the attention to food may not be as great as normal times … but the waiter was kind and very nice to our 11 year old who wanted to come and celebrate his birthday there … Perfect date place or friends hang out with a vast variety of cocktails …

    Our steaks and sides were outstanding. Best steakhouse food I’ve had in a long time at similarly rate / prices spots. The ambience didn’t feel special, though, and the service was a bit mixed in terms of polish. If you’re looking for a great steak in Midtown and are okay with a fairly noisy outing, it’s worth a visit.

    I have had better food and paid less. We didn’t receive our champagne toast and was told I had to ask even though it was part of the set menu. The chips were greasy and not great. The steak which was medium or medium rare was charred in places.

    We went for an 8pm seating on New Year’s Eve, so probably not a typical experience. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves. Festive balloons, lively atmosphere. It was a prix fixe menu, meant for a streamlined kitchen on a busy night, and I’m sure, to regularize turnover a bit. Initially, there was a sense of being rushed, but that eased off later. The rib eye was excellent and generous. The service was friendly and mostly attentive, but just a wee bit off (missing plates and utensils a couple times). Oh, and get the hash browns instead of the mashed potatoes.

    This place does not have it together. Very amateur errors regarding seating, service, food prep and basically everything. I would not recommend this steakhouse. There are far superior ones in NYC. Just for starters, I ordered my steak "pink on the inside and slightly charred if possible." It came very well done and completely burnt on the outside. We were a couple (in our 60s) out for new year's eve and were well dressed for a fun night out. Five minutes after seating us they sat 2 young guys in hoodies and sneakers at the only table next to us. I have nothing at all against young guys in hoodies, but in this huge restaurant it was just a thoughtless choice. The evening included a free glass of champagne which they brought about 30 seconds after bringing our first round of drinks. Who does this?! Really a badly managed place making totally bush league mistakes all over the place. Oh yeah, I requested the sommelier and was told he was "very busy right now." Really? How did they know I wasn't thinking about a $2,500 bottle, of which they had plenty? I wish I had that $450 back from this unfortunate restaurant experience. Don't go here.

    This was our first time visiting this establishment but it will not be our last. Great ambiance, very comfortable and beautifully decorated for the holidays. Service was top notch and our food was well prepared and was very delicious. I had the bone in ribeye steak and it was cooked to perfection. I recommend Benjamin Steakhouse Prime with high regards

    The porterhouse and filet was great. Both were done to the requested temperature and tasted great. Make sure to try the Canadian Bacon appetizer. It’s not what you would expect, especially with a little bit of the steak sauce. Skip the mashed potatoes as those were no better than what you get from a box at home. The brussel sprouts were great and the onion rings were different. Service was great and drinks were good. Had the tiramisu for dessert and that was average. Too much powdered chocolate and a bit dry in texture. Only caution is that it is pricey, even by NYC standards. Good for special occasions and would consider it again if in the city.

    This is the best steakhouse in NYC for quality, service, ambiance and memorable. We have been going there for years and we are never disappointed. Always very welcoming and customer service is tops! Steaks are cooked to precision as ordered and the taste is always consistent (Ribeye, Porterhouse, Fillet Mignon). Don't forget to order appetizers and dessert! Sizzling Canadian Bacon, Jumbo shrimp and grilled calamari are the best but so are all the other items. It is pricey but it is worth it! I would recommend for any special occasions or if you are bringing a client.

    Service was excellent. It was somewhat crowded but expected at Christmas. I had to send my steak back as it was chewy and hard to cut. They were very accommodating and then brought me a filet Mignon which was excellent. Entre portions were large. But it was a good value.
