We went to Benny's for my wife's birthday and were impressed from the beginning. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and the food was amazing! I would recommend Benny's if you are looking for a great steak and a great atmosphere.

We loved Benny's even though some folks warned us it was a "tourist trap". Uh... no. It was simply wonderful. Beautiful setting and absolutely outstanding wait staff. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the food. Although the food was very good, I couldn't call it outstanding - the steaks were good quality for sure but needed seasoning (go try a steak at Monteverde and compare them to here. They season their steaks perfectly.) My brussel sprouts were a little underdone. Everyone was very happy with their meals - it really was very good. The wine guy recommended a wonderful wine that we enjoyed. They have a beautiful bar area, too. My only disappointment was that we really couldn't hear the piano player in the restaurant. That would have been lovey.

The meal was excellent as the streaks were cooked perfectly to our desired temperatures. They had a new gluten free bread that I really enjoyed and I’m grateful they continue to provide those options given my dietary restrictions. Luisa was our server and she was amazing as always. Overall, it was a very enjoyable meal.

The food was good except my crab legs were cold and didn’t taste “fresh”.The service was terrible. Our waitress was extremely rude and stuck up. She made me and my friends feel very unwelcome and uncomfortable. I definitely would not recommend this restaurant there are many other high quality restaurants nearby with welcoming service.

My husband and I are big steak fans, we have worked our way through some of the best steakhouses in Chicago and Benny's was next on our list. We decided to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of our first date there. The atmosphere was contemporary and comfortable, romantic but still well-lit. We were extremely happy with the service and hospitality we were shown. The cocktails and salad we had were good and the maple glazed bacon was amazing. However, as we came here for the steak we were disappointed that our steaks were underwhelming. We always order a dry aged bone-in ribeye, my steak was slightly over cooked but overall they lacked flavor and we chewy at times. We actually preferred the bacon to the steak. I would definitely return for their happy hour and maybe to try something else on the menu.

Looking at the menu online, I liked the selection they offered. We went because this was such a highly-rated steak restaurant (Top 3 in Chicago by dome measures). I liked the live Jazz duo (Piano and Bass) that was performing. We were anticipating an exceptional meal, and it was only ordinary. IMO, we have better at home. We ordered cocktails (Cosmo and Whiskey Sour). Ignoring the fact that they brought an Old Fashioned instead of a Whiskey Sour by mistake initially, neither of the drinks were particularly well made. For a shared appetizer, we had Oysters Rockefeller which were very good (although I've had better elsewhere). The bread basket was only OK. Prefer the bread at Hugo's for example. Ordered a glass of Cote'd Rhone which is quite good and a decent pour. We shared a Ribeye, au gratin cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. The sides were both good solid quality and generous portions but there was no "wow". The Ribeye was cooked to the proper temperature but was under-seasoned. I did ask for, and got salt (none on the table). Still it was not a particularly flavorful steak, which just should not happen at a steak restaurant. Regardless, it was certainly not exceptional, and I've made better at home on my gas grill only 2 weeks earlier. Service was awkward. Rarely was the a member of the wait-staff in eye shot when I needed them. Drinks took too long to arrive even though the restaurant was not busy. As there are probably 20 steak restaurants within 5 blocks, we will not be back to this one.

We enjoyed our post-theater dinner at Benny's. The service was outstanding, the Kobe skirt steak was delicious, bone-in-ribeye great however not the best in the city, creamed spinach side excellent, wedge salad with good balance between toppings and lettuce, lobster bisque decent. Wine list extensive. There were families with kids during the early seating so the restaurant seems kid-friendly.

The restaurant appears tired if not worn out. Very noisy in the bar area. Although the food and service were OK, there are plenty of better options. The wine list, albeit extensive, is over priced at both high and mid ranges.

We do, however, miss Natalie. Please have her return. She is such beautiful person with fresh energy and Benny's is not the same without her as part of the team.

My entire experience at Benny’s was very good and positive. Very attentive, professional, and courteous staff. The food quality was incredible, but expected at this price point. I was a little taken back that the steak options did not come with a side option, but I understand that is consistent with other restaurants of this caliber. I selected the 10 oz Natural Filet Mignon with a side of red wine demi. I had a baked potato, which was a $9.99 charge (seemed high to me), but was a large potato that two people could easily split. The potato came with all the fixings...cheese, sour cream, butter, bacon, green onion. The atmosphere was nice and comfortable, maybe a little too noisy at times. I was disappointed that I couldn’t hear the piano being played downstairs while being sat upstairs. In fairness to Benny’s, I didn’t make this requirement known otherwise I’m sure they would have accommodated.

I would recommend this place to anyone who is wanting a special night out and is willing to pay $150 and up for two meals. We did not have any alcohol, so with that in play, the bill would have readily been $200+. The service, atmosphere, and food quality justified the cost, but throwing in a potato or side option with the cost of the steak doesn’t seem all that unreasonable to me.

Overall, a nice treat and a positive experience!

The food was delicious, but we had a terrible experience with our server. She didn’t really pay attention to us, and it took as long for us to get the bill as it did to order and eat. To top it off, when I was going to the restroom, our waitress and another employee looked at me (or possibly my boyfriend) and laughed and then I heard her say “Good one!” I’m not sure what they were talking about, but I got got the sense they were making fun of me. It was truly a horrible dining experience because of this!
