They were out of the “main” dish by 7:30. Basically just appetizers. What we ate was fine, but this was a birthday dinner and it was supposed to be special and a full meal. Stick with CPH.
If you’re seeking out privacy, ambience, and quality cocktails, wine, and cuisine, you’re choosing the right place! The experience was properly proportioned to price and I’ll be returning some night!
Great! Love it here and will go here again.
We loved the menu although limited, we sampled quite a few things a enjoyed it all. Service was great!
It was the perfect restaurant! I loved the idea of going to a separate entrance upstairs to the restaurant. Our waitress was the best! So helpful, kind, and attentive. The food was unique and delicious along with the drinks and choice of wines. It was a special occasion for my sisters birthday and I would definitely go back when visiting Scottsdale.
The food was amazing, and Margaret the server was very attentive as well as the Chef.
Intimate lighting and coziness makes this place a perfect date spot.
Such a fun and unique experience above Citizen Public House!
We will definitely go back. The food was great. The fried chicken melted in your mouth. The drinks were well made. The waiter - Scotty was a super guy and gave us his undivided attention the whole evening. It was very romantic and a good place to just have drinks and small plates.
Super cool setting - intimate, I feel safe with COVID because there are only a few tables. They serve natural wines!!! A++++ The food is good- I would like to see Benjamin’s switch up their menu a little more because the menu is small- the menu more or less has stayed the same the 3 times I’ve been. But I still keep coming because of the setting and service!
Food was outstanding. Service friendly and prompt. Neat location and overall concept. Drinks left much to be desired. $15 for a classic rum cocktail that only filled half the glass was disappointing.
Great spot for cocky and heavy appetizers...great service and the fried chicken is fabulous.
Really excellent stuff. Have always loved Citizen Public House and was excited to try this new concept. It's located upstairs in Citizen Public House (their former private event space), and is very intimate and relaxed. But more importantly, all the food was phenomenal. Lots of flavor and sophisticated, but without being overworked. Service was also fantastic with great cocktails, as you'd expect since they are a part of Citizen Public House.
Went for our first time & will definitely go again. Good food, nice atmosphere. We really enjoyed the natural wines.
We had a wonderful experience at Benjamin's and highly recommend it. Very small (only 22 chairs) and intimate but not isolating. Comfortable seating, warm and welcoming. It lived up to their description of an "upstairs" speakeasy with great small plates and cocktails. We really enjoyed talking to our server and chef Benjamin when he stopped by to chat. We will definitely tell all our friends (that are willing to go to Scottsdale from Gilbert) and hope to return very soon!!
Excellent new restaurant! Loved the small but quaint vibe and good music. Our waiter Scotty was awesome and we got to meet Benjamin as well which was a nice surprise. The food was fantastic as expected! We will definitely be back.
The ambianvce is amazing but the food choices are so limited. Everyone was craving the downstairs menu
What an amazing night. You get what you pay for with food quality. The oysters were exceptional. Alex was an amazing server.
The ceviche and shrimp cocktail were solid, but the fried chicken was genuinely terrible. Deeply disappointing for a venue “specializing” in fried chicken!
Great place! Felt fairly limited on choices though
Awesome set up and menu for an intimate experience with great wine pairings!
The room is fabulous, cozy and intimate. Love the furnishings. Great personal service by friendly staff. Cocktails rock! Food is excellent and creatively presented.
We LOVED our experience at Benjamin’s! Delicious cocktails, knowledgeable staff, and amazing natural sparkling wines (if you know, you know). Great date night vibes.
The space and ambience was nice. The food was good I thought it could have been better. I didn’t like all the empty glassware and dirty dishes That were left on the table For long periods of time after we were finished. I also didn’t like that there was not descriptions of the cocktails. Asking the server to explain every single one was annoying
Very quiet, intimate, special and unique experience
Perfect date night at Benjamin’s Upstairs! The natural Prosecco was delicious as was the prickly pear ceviche. The service was incredible. We will absolutely be back soon!
From the greeting to the goodbye, everything was exceptional. The fried chicken is an absolute must! We ate our way thru the whole menu and it was 🔥. The Natural Wine list has something for everyone. The Rosé was delicious as well as the traditional Daiquiri. Will be back very soon!
