The atmosphere was wonderful at Benny’s. Our server was warm and friendly, and the service was timely. The wine list had loads of options with an incredible markup on the price. I think the biggest letdown was the value of the meal. When you’re paying $45 to $55 for a serving of steak, one would hope that there would be something else on the plate with the steak, but everything was ala carte with even more cost added for minimal side dishes to share and the plates looked barren with only the meat and nothing else, not even a sprig of parsley. For a high priced restaurant, we paid $1,000 for 5 people, and we had hoped for a better meal experience.

A definite must-go. An epicurean delight! And it doesn't hurt that the service is top notch too. You must try the gazpacho - tantalising to the senses - can't tell which taste bud it hit first; the bone-in filet mignon melted in my mouth. I was grinning like a Cheshire cat the entire time.

Anniversary dinner and the staff treated us very well. An expensive upper end restaurant old Chicago style. But, you do get what you pay for! Ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and the west coast selection of oysters were simply amazing! Also, they carry their own brand of vodka. Certainly worth a try.

There were four of us total. We were celebrating a birthday. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was impeccable. Everyone was friendly and accommodating with personalized service. The food was outstanding and delicious. I had the Dover sole which was exceptional . Others had the scallops and steak - also excellent. The birthday dessert was a fancy, festive, celebratory Smore consisting of marshmallow, a delicious crunch and chocolate cake… Simply amazing! Highly highly recommend for a wonderful food, social experience with friends and family.

I booked Benny's to celebrate my wedding anniversary. When booking, I noted that we were celebrating our anniversary. The food and service were both good, but no one acknowledged the anniversary we were celebrating. I wasn't looking for anything free, but it would have been nice for the staff to say something. They didn't even ask us if we were celebrating anything. There are a ton of dining options yet we choose to spend our special day with you. We went to a different restaurant last year and they went out of their way to acknowledge our special occasion. That's the difference between a good restaurant and a great restaurant. Benny's is a good restaurant, but could be great if they paid more attention to the little things.

We decided to try a newer steakhouse in the city rather than go to one of our old haunts. The food was fine, not great, service was professional, though a little pushy on some of the sides. We’re not necessarily price sensitive, but dinner was around $650 with tip, (for five of us 3 kids) and just felt over priced for average fare.

We really enjoyed our time there. The food was excellent and the portions were a lot bigger than expected. I cannot say enough good things about the staff there. Everyone that we encountered from the moment we walked in until we left was extremely helpful and courteous. They really took the experience to a higher level.

We had a small celebratory dinner at Benny's Chop House. The service, from the time we entered until we finished was fantastic. The selection of steaks, chops or seafood was very good and was only outdone by the extensive wine list. The Sommelier was extremely helpful in providing wine choices to match the dinner selections as well as our price points. It will be one of our go-to steak houses in Chicago.

Delicious food, very attentive staff. We’re 8 for business dinner. Our table was in the room with live music (perfect jazz selection), close to the window as I had requested. Despite of part of the group late arrival, Christina, our waitress, didn’t stress and made the dinner flow normally, without delays and with a very positive attitude.
