We were delighted with our experience at The Benchmark! We had 7 people in our party and we celebrated 2 birthdays. The food was excellent and the service couldn’t have been better! Our server timed every stop at our table perfectly and the number of people who gathered plates and glasses and brought food, table settings and drinks was amazing! You know how to make an evening wonderful!
Daughter’s 50th Birthday!
Somewhat disappointing. Our server was great!
Appetizers were delicious
3 of the 4 entree were not remarkable at all.
The table we had was absolutely filthy (never cleaned)
A very cold draft every time door opens (a screen needed at foyer inside)
Let them know when reservation was made about special occasion. 2 cookie and a candle!!?? No chocolate cake??? Will not return
This experience was sub-par for the rate of 321.00 dollars for 2. Ambience was great and staff was very friendly. I started the evening off with a mezcal drink that was so spicy I could not drink it. I then in turn asked for a glass of blantens that she said they had only to be informed that they were out. So I then settled on a old fashioned which said it came with cherries anyone who has ever had luxardo cherries knows they set the whole drink off. Well long story short, to late they forgot them. Then I orderd stone crab claws @ 57 dollars for 3 of them. I figured what the hell u only live once even though I've bought a dozen for 40 bux. Well they came out frozen. The manager then came out and wanted to make it right by bringing me another set on the house 10 mins later after they gave them a water bath just to find out that I was served frozen ones again. In hind sight if I was the manager I think I would have attempted to unthaw extras and taste them himself. A customer actually talked to me in the men's room and said he had some frozen ones too. Things are obviously not going well so far. You would think this would be the end. I had a ribeye steak that was just good for 110 dollars and it wasn't even wagyu. I've had better by far at Texas roadhouse for 26. So far the only good thing going for me was the chefs choice 2 oz king crab meat that was on top the steak. The manager did buy ne 27 dollar glass of cincora tequila which was a nice gesture. So I had 2 glasses of wine with my meal and it great,However when I got my bill they had charged me for 3 glasses. Then argued that I did in deed have 3 she thought. Which was not the case. So I have found that toledo ohio still has not ben able to provide any fine dining experience since the closing of fifi's.
I will be driving to Detroit or Ann arbor for any fine dining for now on.
Great food. Great ambiance. Will def be back
I loved everything about my first experience at The Benchmark!! I was here to celebrate my graduation from nursing school and I can say it was the perfect atmosphere to celebrate in. Special thanks to my waitress (can’t remember her name) she went above and beyond for us and gifted me a dessert for my accomplishment!!
Thank you so much for making our dinner such a wonderful experience. I was charged with reserving a table for a company dinner with our founder and higher level executives. The room was perfect and everyone was very impressed with the food. Sam was an awesome server too! Thank you for making me look so good!!
Steaks were served cold in the center and warm only on the edges. Wedge salad was returned because the entire center was brown. Dinner rolls were served lukewarm. Mushrooms served were cold. Not an enjoyable experience and definitely not worth the cost.
Jamie was the best waitress! Very accommodating and helpful.
We had a lovely meal. A birthday card was delivered to our guest of honor.
Great environment. This is really a steak place. However we tried various other dishes. The swordfish piccata was very good but the asparagus was thick and not very good. The grits were excellent and could be a dessert with the maple syrup and bacon. The Brussels sprouts were vey good but enough for three people. The cauliflower was very salty and had a flavor we couldn’t place ended up sending it back. The wine selection is good by the bottle but poor by the glass. The craft cocktails offer a good selection. We had a vodka with soda and cranberry Ted first one was good the second was poor. Service was excellent and very attentive.
Excellent food, service and drinks. The portions seem to have increased as well.
This restaurant was amazing!! Food was spectacular and the efficiency of the staff was the best I had ever experienced ever in a restaurant!! Absolutely making restaurant!!
This is such a fantastic restaurant. We’ve been several times and always enjoy coming back. The filet chef’s way is a favorite along with the cauliflower.
We eat at Benchmark often. We had friends in from Los Angeles so Benchmark was the place to go for fine dining, As always, the food and service were terrific. Ashley, our server, did an outstanding job explaining the menu. She was very attentive throughout the night. Benchmark did a great job!
Our server jack was amazing, great service and food!
Food was outstanding. Service was good. The overall noise was moderate plus. Very nice family evening.
We had Anna as a waitress! She was the absolute best. We moved here from NY this was our first time here and we will be back !
The whole experience was top notch! Amazing food! First class service from all the staff! Can not wait for our next dining experience, so many more things to try that will take many visits!
As always an amazing experience. Our waiter Jack was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Adam the bartender makes amazing drinks.
Our server Mike was fantastic he helped us in our food choices and was very friendly and welcoming on this our first visit here. The food was outstanding!
This was our first time at Benchmark. Our waiter was fantastic. The food was amazing and the restaurant incredible. They even had a birthday card there signed by the staff for my wife; a nice touch.
We will be back for sure and I have already recommended Benchmark to a few people in less than 24 hours.
Excellent food, drink choices, service and atmosphere. Truly a wonderful restaurant!
Amazing service even better food well done making a very beautiful fancy restaurant in ohio
The atmosphere was nice and the food was very good . The waitress was soo nice and friendly.
Very good food and the service was excellent. Prices were equivalent to the value ($$$$). Only negative was that it was very loud with a lot of patrons. Acoustics contributed to the loudness.
Excellent service and great food with portion sizes that make the price worthwhile. Great atmosphere for both date dining and larger groups.
The noise is the only negative thing. The food was amazing and so was waiter.
Excellent from start to finish. Our server Ashely was outstanding along with the bar staff.
My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner and everything was amazing as always! I had the stuffed chicken and my husband had the waygu ribeye special and both were phenomenal. They even gave us a card and complimentary champagne toast for our anniversary.
Great food and great service, that’s all we ask for in a restaurant.
Had an awesome experience! From the host to our server to the incredible dinner!
Highly recommend. It was our anniversary and they gave us a card and two glasses
of champagne which made the dinner even more special! You need to try Benchmark!
30th Anniversary dinner, entire experience outstanding, atmosphere, the food, especially the service. We will be back
The service and food is second to none.
Wonderful food and service. Great for a special evening
We were both warmly greeted upon our arrival. Our server, Nick, remembered us from our previous visit two months prior.
Service was friendly and prompt. Food was excellent.
We will be dining there again later this week!
Great atmosphere, wonderful food and very friendly service.
Staff, Food, Location, Parking, Atmosphere all top notch!
Service was awesome. Ambiance was great. Food was amazing!
This was one of the absolute best dining experiences we have ever had! When making the reservation, I indicated that we would be surprising our parents for their 42nd wedding anniversary. Benchmark and their entire staff did not disappoint. From the ambiance to the attention to detail (champagne toast and personalized card) to the food and service, everything was exceptional. The food was cooked and seasoned to perfection and the evening was filled memories we will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you to the entire staff and especially to our server, whom we affectionately called Jack with the good hair.
Excellent food! Make reservations ahead of time. Pricey, but worth it. One snafu is that we were not given all our leftovers (the steak!) - so request that they box up the leftovers tableside, instead of taking them in back. We lost about $40 worth of steak this meal as we did not get it boxed up as we thought we had.
