Have eaten at Benoit a number of times and usually relatively quiet. Last night we were seated next to a more boisterous group so it moderately noisy but easy to tune out and still have a conversation without raising our voices.

Ordered the escargot as an appetizer and calf's liver as main. Was underwhelmed by escargot. Not enough flavor. The calf's liver with lyonnaise potatoes was great. It was cooked to perfection, very tender and wonderful flavor. Would definitely order again.

The service was at times intrusive. After ordering drinks the wait staff kept coming over wanting to know if we were ready to order. My guest and I just wanted to enjoy our drinks and converse a while before ordering. The constant pressure to order was annoying.

A pleasant blend of refined and relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food (devine veal liver). Surprisingly, French fries could be better but mushrooms saved the sides, excellent. Very good service.
Benoit is simply a “valeur sûre” in New York City.

We visit here every time we come to New York. Consistently excellent. This time they came out with a complimentary warm pan of madelines and urged us to take one! The staff is always excellent and professional.

Everything was excellent but the noise undid the excellence. I Hope you Can take care of this.

Benoit is an elegant, classic French bistro-style restaurant that we often choose for unhurried romantic evenings with good conversation and well-prepared traditional food. We came the day after Valentine's rather than the day itself to avoid the crowd, and as we hoped, the restaurant was not jammed. However, the service was strangely inattentive even though there were plenty of staff. Our sense was that they weren't really paying attention, even though they were walking around a lot. Timing in-between courses was long. The chestnut velouté was exceptional - rich and light at the same time, and the accompanying cromesquis were crunchy on the outside, and steaming and flavorful to the bite. Cassoulet (which on other occasions here I've thought was the best I'd ever tasted) was dry, though the duck confit and sausage were excellent. Even the complimentary madeleines were dry. And we would have considered dessert but by the time we got someone's attention, we thought better of it. This was not the best evening for this usually wonderful restaurant.

Can’t praise enough the duck foie gras and the foie de veau. The profiteroles are splendid.

It was great for Valentine’s don’t get me wrong. But the food on a day like that is what you would expect. Didn’t feel freshly prepared and just wasn’t equal the price tag.

Benoit Restaurant is superb. Everything was excellent, from the food to the service.
Experiencing Benoit explains why Alain Ducasse has received so many Michelin Stars.
My husband and I will return and recommend to our friends who understand wonderful French cuisine.

Excellent old fashioned French bistro fare--outed mayonnaise, tarte flambée, cassoulet. Delicious hot madeleines as handouts. Service was very uneven. Wine was excellent.

I come to Benoit for Sunday brunch every time I'm in New York. It's just wonderful. You feel as if you were in Paris! The food and the service are great. Roast chicken is delicious!

Benoit is quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants. The food/staff/ambiance are so authentically french and fantastic. Alexis, the Head Sommelier is so knowledgeable and delightful and always steers us towards wonderful bottles of wine. The roast chicken is perfect...we always enjoy our evenings here whether it's just my husband and I or a group of friends!
