    This was not the first time we have had dinner here, so it is a bit of a shock that it was so disappointing that we didn’t stay for dessert. I requested a corner table due to my husband’s hearing and obviously the hostess didn’t pay attention. She did the opposite of the request. We were crammed into a table between two obscene couples in the middle of the room. It was not overly busy and there were empty tables. There was no consistency with servers and we had to keep repeating requests for things like butter and lemon. My Escargot was not served in parsley butter, but tasted more like parsley paste. The Filet mignon was cooked perfectly, but over seasoned by hard chunks of peppercorn. By the time the server was done hacking at the Dover sole, stopping so the couple at the next table could crawl out, the fish was cold. That filleting should have been done in the kitchen. The sweet potato dish was good. I’m not sure why the policy is an hour and a half for two people to dine, because after that long we still didn’t have any one take our dessert order. We were seated near the kitchen so we could see the waiters ignore us. What made this truly awful is we have dined here for the last 10 years when we come to NYC. It was truly a shock because this was a favorite with great memories, food and service.

    We booked Benoit based on our original excellent experience. Dinner this time, however, was extremely disappointing. I booked two weeks in advance and requested a particular type of corner table. Upon arrival, with the restaurant half empty, I was told these tables were occupied. Why? If the resto had been to capacity, perhaps I would be understanding. But even when we left, it had never filled up. No excuse. The grouper was so overcooked we sent it back. The steak tartare was presented in chunks. Unacceptable. Our waiter was pleasant but the Maitre d staff are snobby and impatient. Unless, of course, you are ordering expensive wine. I will spend my money and enjoy my evenings elsewhere in nyc. So unfortunate as we enjoyed this place and sent others here on our recommendation. Off the list. Poor experience. This is not becoming of an Alain Ducasse resto.

    Friendly and gracious greeting by hostess. Prompt direction to our table. Attentive (but not obtrusive), friendly, helpful and professional service. The food was excellent -- cassoulet delicious and authentic. The sommelier was particular good -- helpful, knowledgeable, reasonable and didn't make us feel rushed. The restaurant turned a routine business dinner into a real occasion. Only complaint -- a bit loud on arrival, but the place grew considerably quieter as the evening went on.

    We were seated inside upon arrival. After sitting across from each other for a minute, we realized we could not hear each other speak as it was so loud. We requested a move to the outside and enjoyed every moment. Outside is filled with street noise and provided a lively experience and the ability to have a conversation. The food, especially the cassoulet, was suburb. Our server was so pleasant and helpful.

    Another wonderful dinner at Benoit. All of the servers and maitre’d were helpful with advice and recommendations. The ambiance of the room is inviting, not too quiet but able to converse without any difficulty. The food was excellent, a really gem in the Carnegie Hall area. Looking forward to returning

    Excellent food and drink, mostly traditionally French (but the seared octopus starter was tender and very well prepared). The beef tartar was topnotch and a generous portion, and the free bread service was what one expects in a good French restaurant. The red Bordeaux by the glass was especially outstanding. Garrett's service was friendly, prompt, and attentive. Highly recommended. Look forward to my next visit.

    Beonit is a fabulous French Bistro - the onion soup is one of the best in New York, the drinks are well made and the wines by the glass are usually very good = the staff is lovely - Last night we indulged in onion soup and hamburgers - which are excellent and the french fries are crisp fresh and delicious - the hamburger is fantastic - the only thing - it was a lovely evening - we opted to sit outside - that was a mistake - for whatever reasons too many flies - perhaps because the block Benoit is on is populated by many many restaurants with outdoor dining and that is also hospitable to many elements that we would rather not endure- but go inside, which we usually do - the restaurant itself transports you to paris - so yes - outdoor dining in November may be nice - but eating in - is definitely better is all I am saying - it's a really good restaurant and one of the best French Bistro's in New York

    A very pretty place but the food was mediocre at best. Had the cassoulet which was watery and not particularly tasty. Plain green salad was overdressed with too much vinegar. Certainly a disappointment for a restaurant with a renowned chef at the helm. It was our anniversary so it was too bad that we had chosen there over so many other restaurants.
