Mediterranean

Benno is a fine-dining restaurant featuring Mediterranean cuisine, from acclaimed Chef Jonathan Benno. The menu focuses on the area where Italy and France meet at Liguria and Provence, while highlighting additional regions along the Mediterranean coast. The beverage program also explores the unique wines & spirits from these provinces, with options for both cocktail and wine pairings that complement the arc of the food menu.

Located in the land marked and newly redesigned hotel, The Evelyn, the Art Deco-inspired dining room evokes a grandeur harkening back to the gilded ago of old New-York. The design, cuisine, and service at Benno all aim to create a sense of elegance and refinement, but also fun and celebration.

                                                  Benno is always spectacular, and this visit was no exception. The food is delicious, creative and beautifully presented, and the staff is really without equal. This is one of the great ones.

                                                  I had a lovely time. I came in on a quiet evening on the 4th of July weekend, and I thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite food and expert service. Although this is a fine dining experience with prices to match, it is also an excellent value compared to comparable restaurants in NYC because there are flexible options depending on how many courses you would like and three courses is probably less than what you’d spend for the same number of courses at a restaurant with anything near this level of food. Cooking technique and flavor combinations on display were exceptional. I highly recommend this place.

                                                  From the moment they brought an amuse bouche of oyster coated with caviar to the rhubarb dessert, the evening was superb. Service very attentive, knowledgeable and prompt. The wine pairings from the coravin selection were exquisite. Certainly deserves the 3 stars from The NY Times.

                                                  We were last at Benno in February and many months later they have only grown in warmth, precision, elegance, and extraordinary cooking. The room is genuinely soothing without being sleepy and the well-priced cocktails allow a smooth transition into a relaxed dinner that truly lets you feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This sense of escape and timelessness is especially welcome in a town that runs on buzz and hysteria. Benno is a major new restaurant and let's hope it's around a long time.

                                                  The food is very good and presentation is amazing. There are many, many servers. It’s very quiet and a bit stuffy and super expensive so it’s not right for everyone.

                                                  We have little but praise for this sophisticated restaurant with sophisticated food. That said, there were some downsides. Nearly all our food was too salty, though the other herbs and spices were perfect. Pasta portions were too small, though the entrees were adequate. The only weak food link was dessert--the same reaction as we had had previously. I love dessert, but having it as a required course when one can choose from five course categories for a three-course meal is not attractive, especially when, say, the pasta is delicious but not so the dessert. The restaurant is too dark for our taste, and it's too loud when full, due to the hard edges of the antique tile floor (beautiful) and no apparent noise-softening material. Service was excellent, though a little too "present." With a $120 bottle of wine, tip, and tax, the tab was $425. All of that said, this restaurant is a keeper!

                                                  A well balanced and flexible menu. Anyone should be able to put together a meal to their liking. The riff on vitello tonnato was outstanding, the halibut perfectly cooked, etc. The strawberry pre dessert was yummy, although the rhubarb dessert was too bland for three of us who ordered it. The room is adult without being stuffy. Service was top notch. Definitely worth many return visits.

                                                  My husband and I ate at Benno with another couple on a Saturday night. The service was outstanding - very attentive staff. The food was very good with lots of appealing choices. Best of all, the noise level was tolerable - a rarity in NYC these days.

                                                  Highly recommend! My husband and I went for a much needed long awaited date night with a baby at home. The food was superb - everything delicious and refined. I feel bad for the comis who had to de-shell all the peas but so worth it. We did the 4-course and everything was fantastic - I had the lobster and my husband the beef. The staff was great, especially the friendly bartender as we waited to be seated (we were early). Everything was timed perfectly and I appreciate that we weren’t rushed. The restaurant is beautiful - midcentury modern/Mad Men-esque. Pricey but worth it. Highly recommend.

                                                  Very understated, thought that would not be enough to eat as the portions were small. The dinner rolls were great and made sure no one left hungry; but the food was the star, well presented and very good. With dinner for two coating North of $300 expectations were very high and for the most part they were met. Special place.

                                                  We absolutely loved our meal. We visit NYC from San Francisco every year and had enjoyed several dinners at Lincoln over the past few years, so we’re eager to experience Benno. My husband and I each ordered a four-course menu. All dishes were outstanding: oysters, abalone, garganelli, trifurcation, sea bass, lamb, chocolate babka and pear with ricotta — wonderful preparations all! Our server also chose perfect wine pairings. We shall return for sure!

                                                  The service was excellent. We would have preferred a few more dessert choices. The food was very very good and the staff was extremely accommodating and professional The room is somewhat casual but you get to like that. Best of all besides the staff, was the low noise level and lovely background music.
