                            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!

                            I enjoyed all of the dishes i have had at Cafe Benedict and i find it a very peaceful and enjoyable location for dinner.

                            Brunch was delightful. Celebrated a friend’s birthday and the dessert was perfect- light and not too sweet. Great way to end the meal

                            Elegant setting. The staff were so accommodating. The pianist was just the right touch. The music was beautiful but not too loud. The brunch was flavorful and the cerviche great. Menu is reasonably priced.

                            We have dined at Cafe Benedict many times and have never been disappointed. Great service and excellent food. Charcuterie board, chicken Marsala, and crepe brûlée for dessert! The best!!!

                            Was looking for a restaurant that was midway between the two of us - so totally by chance. It was amazing. Food was great and so was the service.

                            We decided late in the day to treat ourselves to a meal out. And this place was a treat!! Great people, very good food, and tasty cocktails made it a perfect night out. Only issue was the lack of handicap parking in the lot. Owners aware and frustrated. We will come back soon.

                            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.

                            I have intended to dine here for many years but last night was the first time. It was a wonderful evening with friends. The staff was exceptionally friendly and attentive. It was a little slower than anticipated but not bothersome. The food we all had was excellent. Well prepared, hot and very nice presentation. We had the blackened redfish ponchartrain, the grilled pork chop and steak Diane. They were all delicious as were the lentil and French onion soups and the bread pudding and carrot cake for dessert. Will definitely have Cafe Benedicte on our go to restaurant list in the future.

                            Enjoyed a wonderful luncheon with some friends. The lamb chops and asparagus were perfect, My guest enjoyed her lamb gyro and the other her angus burger. Everything was properly cooked and the wait staff was wonderful and professional. I can highly recommend Cafe Benedicte.

                            Service was very poor! Almost like he forgot about us. Unimpressed with salad choices. Had the caprese which was poorly dressed and lacking in flavor. Had the chicken piccata that was not seasoned and too heavy with olive oil and sauce.
