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.

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.

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.

Great! Although servers were not overly accommodating for making sure our table was well stocked on drinks. Otherwise they were flexible when it came to modifying set menu. Delicious!

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.

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!

From start to finish it was an excellent dinner experience. You can tell there was great thought in the preparation of each dish .

The tastes were distinct and crisp and not the overly salty sauces.

The soufflé is a must.

Still like Bouley the best but this is excellent.

We have been customers of Benoit since it opened. While the food is consistently high standard the service can at times be lacking. On our last visit the young lady responsible for welcoming us and seating us seemed bewildered that we would wish to have a drink at the bar first and then seemed to forget that we had a reservation when prompted. The service at the bar however is always outstanding. Paul the bartender is a classic example of old school bar tending sadly becoming hard to find in the city as tattoos and beards seem to have replaced product knowledge and personality. He is welcoming, freindly and as knowledgable as any Sommelier. He keeps us coming back.

My one complaint is the rest room...down a steep flight, cramped and out of place in this elegant restaurant. A unisex handicapped bathroom on the first floor would be a blessing.

The food was terrific but the service could have been better. It took ages to get someone’s attention to take our drink order and the young man )who seemed to be both the maitre d and wine steward) had some attitude. Once we had our waiter’s attention the service improved.

What a disappointment! I went for dinner during restaurant week, hoping to find a hidden gem that I could return to. First, I was a female dining alone, and was practically ignored by the waitstaff when I arrived. I asked for the wine list, which is all French wines, no California in the bunch… and the list is hugely expensive. The “by the glass” wine list quotes prices by the 2oz pour! With no 2oz pour less than $11. So, if you want a 6oz glass of wine plan on ponying up $33 or more a glass...which is insulting, even by NYC standards! The Restaurant Week menu includes an octopus salad (4-tiny pieces of octopus) and mixed greens, along with steak salad. The steak was delicious and properly cooked, but, the portion of steak/salad was so small I ended up ordering another side salad off the menu for $9 to get full. The entire experience was very disappointing....from the inattentive waiters to tiny portions to ridiculously expensive wines...I will never return.
