The quality of the food was not as good as before and the service was so so. Not sure if the pandemic had anything to do with it but it was a bit disappointing

Went for brunch today with a small party of 4.
The service was casual and disorganized. Drinks arrived one at a time and very slowly including the milk for my tea .
Food is expensive and disappointing. Salad niçoise with canned tuna… overpriced.

We have been dining at Benoit for years and have always had solid bistro cooking there. This visit was a bit perturbing however as, after checking our vaccine cards and IDs (standard NYC COVID procedure now for indoor dining), the hostess proceeded to seat us at a table where I was literally shoulder to shoulder with another diner. Although he and his partner were about to leave, they lingered for some time after we were seated. The rest of the tables were placed to allow social distancing. Seems a bit careless to seat any customers in such a fashion, and the front of house staff might want to be cautioned not to do so.

Food TRRIBLE. Benoit great for burgers, fried and Croques Madames. Salmon dried out. Tarragon sauce cold and clotted. Asparagus GRAY. Never saw such over-cooked asparagus. Meal inedible. Sorry to say. I used to love this place. The service was
what you'd associate with fine dining but the food was TRULY BAD!

Cheap New York version of Alain Ducasse multiple restaurants in France.Mediocre food,slow unprofessional service.Wine was served after food were on the table.
Water glasses came from 99 cents store.Bored wine steward opened a bottle and was gone forever ( in the almost empty place).
Goes the way of "Adore" - his previous NYC closed restaurant.
So if you want to dine in his place,try Plaza Athenee,Paris or Louis xiv in Monaco.

One of our favorite NYC establishments. So glad it has survived Covid. Consistently delivers first rate authentic French cuisine in an equally beautiful French neighborhood bistro atmosphere. Portion sizes are perfect as they allow you to enjoy a meal of complete courses without feeling stuffed. The escargot and fish entrées are my favorites but I have also enjoyed the chicken dishes.

A great experience. The food was excellent. I had the salmon which was great. For dessert I had the creme caramel which was divine. I also had some very good white wine which went well with the salmon. The service was knowledgeable and efficient. I didn't feel rushed or pressured. I have been to Benoit several times over the years usually to celebrate Bastille Day. I love the ambiance. It feels like being in France. The lighting the bar, the dining room, all evoke a sense of being in a traditional bistro in Paris. I will definitely go back.
