The overall feel of the establishment is intimate and cozy. I was impressed with the variety of drinks offered as well as the menu. The portions served are very generous. Our server Anna was beyond incredible. She was polite, professional, personable, knowledgeable about the menu, and timed the meal perfectly. I loved the additional personal touch of the happy anniversary note from the staff.
Everything was wonderful the food was amazing. Ashley was a Great
Absolutely incredible. Every minute of our visit was exceptional. Can’t wait to go back!
Poorly cooked steak burnt Brussel sprouts. Only thing good was scallop, pirogues and bread they bring out
Food is not worth the price. Ridiculously over priced. Drinks were horrible. Will never…. Ever….go back.
Everything was perfect from the food to the service 10/10
Great all around!
The waiter and greeters were great. The steaks were not as good as Mancy's or Rockwell's.
Everything about this place is awesome. From the service, to the dinner, to the dessert!!!!
"Best rib-eye steak", "creamy grits", "Caesar salad and Brussel sprouts the best I have had". Just a few compliments of our meal from the tasters. Always excellent service, food, atmosphere. Our go-to restaurant for entertaining with family and friends!
Great food, great waitress. There was no rushing us in and out and the food preparation was outstanding.
We loved the food! The pop over bread is outstanding and the creme brule was A MA ZING!!!
Start to finish was a remarkable experience. Everything exceeded expectations. Steaks were perfect. Great service. And the bourbon cake was a top 5 all time dessert. Overall tremendously impressed
My overall experience was outstanding; the service, food, and atmosphere were superb!
My husband and I always celebrate our anniversary at Mancy’s.
However, this year we decided to try Benchmark. We aren’t mad that we did! Everything was exceptional!
Our Server, Jack F. gave superior service!
I ordered a Filet Chef’s Way and I honestly can say it was THE BEST thing that has touched my palate! Also, the House salad was out of this world delicious. If they had lunch hours I would go just for that salad!
My husband had the Ribeye, Twice Baked Potato and French Onion Soup.
He enjoyed everything just as much as I did. He said the soup was the best he has ever had!
To top off our spectacular dinner, we were offered dessert on the house for our anniversary.
We chose Salted Caramel Crème Brûlée which was heavenly.
We have found our new restaurant for celebrations.
I highly recommend Benchmark for any occasion!!
Outstanding in every way!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Over exceeded all expectations. Our waiter Jack made our 1st time there amazing
First time visiting Benchmark. Everything was perfect. The food was excellent as well as the service. Jeff and Megan have created a wonderful, intimate place. Cheers!
The Benchmark staff was amazing and made the celebration of my wife’s retirement so special.
We had heard such good things about this restaurant. We reserved a table months ago for a new year’s dinner. We were disappointed with the experience. Service was spot on. Very attentive and knowledgeable waitstaff.
The $12 crock of onion soup was tasteless.
The $9 wedge salad also had a tasteless blue cheese dressing.
My $45 New York strip was cooked perfectly, but not the best steak I have ever had.
My wife’s $54 ribeye was lukewarm .
The best part of my meal was my $7 side of grits.
$11 martinis came in bulky cut crystal glasses that were hard to handle.
Sorry but we will not be back.
Very impressed with the service and the food. Our ribeye steak was cooked to exactly how we asked. The stuffed chicken was very juicy and tender. The brussel sprouts and twice baked potato was also great tasting. I feel you cannot order anything bad here. The chef mingled and answered questions, our waiter was always filled and we enjoyed the hustle and bustle of all the waiters/waitresses as they worked and made sure everyone was taken care of.
It was an Awesome restaurant choice next to our Hotel making that even more convenient. We purchased a gift card to encourage our friends to come and try it. Thanks for the experience!
We ordered the butchers block dinner and the steaks were tough and everything was cold except for the potato, and my guess is they were waiting for it to get done before bringing the butcher block. We were not asked how it was for quite a while and just didn’t seem worth it to mention it. I also asked the server about an email for a free appetizer I received in my email, and she advised she would check with the chef, and it was never mentioned again. A lot of friends have been saying the butcher block meal was good and we were excited to try it, but just didn’t seem worth the $310 meal to eat cold and tough steak. The last time we were there, it was a good experience, after yesterday, not so much.
Our favorite restaurant. Audrey was our waitress and was outstanding. John the GM picked perfect wine to complement our steak and seafood entrees.
Everything was amazing! My reservation started at 6
Very nice fine dining experience. French onion soup was great. 10 oz filet the chefs way was amazing. So good! Bourbon cake with ice cream dessert was perfect. We will definitely be back!
Simply the best fine dining experience!
Benchmark’s reputation did not disappoint! This was an exceptional dining experience. The service and food were exquisite and immaculately presented. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great evening of dining excellence. Cheers!
We were greeted and seated promptly by the owners wife. Jack was an excellent and knowledgeable server. We will return!
This was our first visit to the Benchmark and we will definitely go back! The food and service were both outstanding. We ordered wine, split a wedge salad, and ordered the Butcher’s Board for two. We didn’t get a side because the board was more than enough for the two of us. It included a prime filet, a prime strip steak, lobster tail, scallops and shrimp. Everything was delicious! Since it was my birthday, we even received a complimentary desert and split the creme brûlée. Prices seem comparable to any of Toledo’s top steak houses and it was plenty crowded with couples and groups.
Delicious steaks and inspired fare overlayed by impeccable service.
Always amazing food and service! One of our favorites for sure.
Amazing food and our waiter Sam and the team were great!
Very enjoyable. Felt like you were in the city at a very high end restaurant. The food had so much flavor it was a real treat! Can’t wait to return
Great service! Amazing food. We will definitely be back!
Great food with great friends
The food and service is always great at Benchmark. Probably the best steak I've had. We've never had a bad experience!
We always enjoy Benchmark but our dinner last night was AMAZING and probably the best we've had there. The Swordfish was perfectly done and the steaks were outstanding. We asked for a little lighter seasoning on the steaks and the chefs did an outstanding job. The salted caramel creme brulee was a perfect finish.
We took some friends here because we really love this place! Try the pierogi appetizer for a delicious change of pace!
Gathering of SJJ ‘78 classmates. Wonderful time, wonderful experience.
Loved the chicken schnitzel, and the portion size was just right. My husband had the pork dish, overly large portion; but delish. Service very nice, not hovering too much, but there when we needed them.
Like always, the staff at Benchmark knocked it out of the park! Celebrated my husband's birthday. The food was amazing, the service was top-notch, and the evening was perfect! Thank you again for making our dinner excellent.
