    We have been to Cafe Benedict’s numerous times and it was wonderful as usual. Calamari and Caesar salad were excellent. And the Chicken Marsala was perfect. But the best is the crepe brûlée for dessert. Yum! Service is always good and the owner stopped by our table a couple of times to check in with us. Thank you and see you again soon!

    The second (refill) cappuccino after I finished drinking the 1st cappuccino came out with only creamer added to regular coffee and charged twice. I complained to the female manager and her attitude was too bad and arrogant. I don't want to come back to this restaurant and recommend to friends either.

    The food is extremely good and flavorful. I would highly suggest trying the bloody Maria. Slightly racist name of a drink but it’s good. Our server was Kylie and she was absolutely awesome. The portion sizes are large. The only thing I did not like was the extreme noise level it’s very loud. I’m not sure the restaurant can do anything about that but it is very loud.

    We were very happy with Cafe Benedicte. We went there for our Anniversary and really enjoyed the evening. The food was excellent as was the service. We asked for a quiet seating area and they gave us the quietest location in the restaurant, in the wine room. Vahid, the owner, came back and visited with us and made us feel really welcome. Our food was so delicious, we simply could not stop eating! There was no taking home food because it was just too delicious to leave any on our plates. Our waiter was a very polite and accomodating young man. We appreciated very much his attentiveness to our needs and requests. He brought us champagne and when we got our bill, the desert we ordered was "on the house". We plan to go back again and highly recommend this lovely restaurant!

    We love this place! Always nice atmosphere, delicious food, attentive staff. Did I mention delicious food??? I got a happy birthday song from the staff, it was so cute! So happy this place withstood Harvey, covid, last years freeze and came up on top. Btw they also have very good wine list! Couple of suggestions: very dark even for the intimate ambiance I believe you’re going for, a little more light would go a long way; expand the appetizer list, in the very list add a generous charcuterie board option or something similar, and people would bring more parties in! (At least I would! Considered doing it this year with 9 of my friends, but a tiny baked brie just couldn’t do it for us) Thank you!

    The fillet had gristle and was undercooked. In my opinion, restaurant steaks should not have gristle. The service is absolutely outstanding. I would definitely go back, but not for beef.
