    The food and service were excellent. The restaurant filled up after we arrived and was a little noisy, but not so much that we could not have a conversation. It was very expensive, especially the drinks and entrees.

    We had a great lunch and I was grateful that you seated us at a round table. I hadn’t requested this specifically but having not met in person (my colleagues) prior to this, it was great for our conversation and being able to connect. The food was exquisite, impeccable service. I will be back when I’m in New York!

    We had a great time as always at Benoit. Love the atmosphere and the staff is always nice and attentive. Really great service. This time the cassoulet was slightly disappointing. Too watery, lacking consistency, beens were a bit hard and not tender or creamy. We had better ones in the past at Benoit. Same for the quenelles, sauce was excellent but the quenelles were missing substance. Desserts were excellent.

    The food was excellent. The service was outstanding. We had the tuna carpaccio special. It was great! Escargot to die for. I thought the duck was a little tough but other than that everything was great! Plan on visiting again. Glad I got to try this place.

    Food was incredibly disappointing. From apps to mains. Deserts were fairly good, but cassoulet, grouper and pot au feu were really substandard. Wine was great but severely overpriced-$30 for a glass of Chateauneuf?!?

    We were trepidatious about the NYC Benoit, having had such a superlative experience at Benoit Paris a while ago. Would the NYC location measure up? But we needn't have worried. We were so happy with our meal at the New York Benoit! Excellent service, beautifully prepared food, and a marvelous wine list. Grouper was perfectly cooked and served with charred endive and delicious reduction, the velvety foie gras appetizer was served with toasted brioche and a simple apple chutney. Onion soup was just what it should be at a proper French bistro: a deep, winey, rich stock and just enough cheese (not the "pizza soup" you get at so many places). The vanilla mille-feuille was light, crispy and just great with the excellent coffee. And we were offered little warm madeleines to send us off into the night. Our idea of great restaurant service is never having to ask for anything. So it was: water, wine, bread all served and replenished without so much as a glance at one of the many friendly, gracious and efficient staff. Such a great meal. We'll be back.

    This is one of our NYC favorites. For this lunch, Benoit’s specialty roast chicken was overcooked, drier than usual. The dover sole meunière was perfect. A delight, as was the recommended Pouilly-Fuissé paired with it. Loved listening to the French speaking couple at the next table. Our waiter and the support staff were informed, and friendlier than in most Parisian bistros. The baba au rhum was like having a stiff drink in the middle of the afternoon. A nice outing .

    With so many expensive restaurants serving food whose main virtue seems to be that it is scarcely cooked, I am grateful for a more traditional French restaurant, serving classic French dishes such as cassoulet, escargot, soufflé, etc. This was a very good bistro experience and I recommend it to anyone looking for a happy and informal meal with excellent food.

    The Quenelle was excellent and so was the escargot and Tarte Flambé. But why could I chew some sugar from the soufflé? Usually I do not chew crunchy sugar even if you sprinkled the sides of the ramekin prior to baking it.

    Unfortunately an almost cold monkfish over cooked is a disgrace for a restaurant branding Alain Ducasse. Should prioritize taste as the motto of the big chef but my dish has low taste. Unacceptable for such kind of restaurant.
