Food was amazing. Sea Bass was cooked to perfection! Server was attentive but not too overbearing. Been several
times and will be sure to be back again!
Another incredible dinner!! Everything was great and the gumbo is to die for!
Excellent food and service. We came in to dine late evening after a long day and dining at the Benchmark was the perfect ending. One mishap was that they ran out of the cheese grits for a side dish and we weren’t told till much later, however the staff and manager were both apologetic and treated us to desserts for the inconvenience. Highly recommend for the mouth watering food and top notch service staff.
attended a wine and food tasting on Sunday. Very organized event, waitstaff was extremely pleasant and professional and attentive. The six course meal was delicious and not too filling as it was truly a "tasting". Same with the wine, the 3.5 oz pours were enough to sample the delicate flavors along with the perfect paring of food but not so much that we were looped at the end. The husband and wife team introducing the wine choices were knowledgable and passionate about their wines. My favorite was the 2nd course seafood pasta with a bit of a kick! It was loaded with Crab and lobster and just soooo good! The fruit tart as the 6th course was a treat paired with a not too sweet Moscato. Fun times, and Benchmark knows how to do it right!! PS. they also catered my daughters wedding reception-best decision ever!
We’ve been to Benchmark multiple times and it never disappoints! The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and seems truly passionate about their work. The food and cocktails are delicious as well.
I do have to say that Benchmark’s wine pairing dinner was particularly outstanding! The food was flawless and the pairing were spot on. Truly gave us a new appreciation on how food and wine can compliment each other.
We thoroughly enjoyed the wine & dine event. Both the food & staff were impeccable. The pasta w seafood was on the spicy side but not so hot as to set it aside. The ribeye & lamb chops were both perfectly cooked & tender. I’ve not had duck before & it seemed a little tough to me but maybe that’s how it usually is.
The polenta & eggplant caponata we’re both very tasty. All the wine choices were spot on. Overall an excellent experience!
Just an outstanding dining experience! Sat at the bar and our server / bartender (Stacy) was wonderful!
We had a great evening, the only drawback is that it was noisy, even with COVID spacing
We had delicious food and really enjoyed our evening. Can’t wait to come back! Benchmark is becoming a real favorite of ours. Thank you!
The wait staff was excellent. Especially Michael, who was our server.
It was truly a wonderful experience. Jack, our server, was very knowledgeable & friendly. He helped make it a terrific experience. The food, OMG! Spectacular!! Thank you for helping make our 17th wedding anniversary very memorable!!
Our waiter I believe his name was Michael was outstanding.
My husband’s birthday will be a memorable one because of Benchmark! The food was amazing. Recommended by our amazing waiter Jack, we order the tomahawk steak meal and it was by far, the best ever. The smoked salmon dip and the thick cut bacon was delicious. We enjoyed every second.
Our first e dinner at The Benchmark was very enjoyable; we'll be back soon!
First time at this restaurant, went because we had a gift card
The food was amazing. My husband tried the swordfish and was very pleased
The wait staff was attentive and friendly.
Would highly recommend to anyone in the area that wants to eat at a high level service and food restaurant
Great place to visit! Chelsea was amazing.
great restaurant for all occasions, superb staff and food
During this COVID-19 thing it is very hard to provide ambiance with social distancing. The hanging plexiglass separators between tables prevented a closed-in feeling yet it didn't result in a vibrant open restaurant feeling.
I had the sea bass and my wife the filet - both were very flavorful, there are no bad vibes at the restaurant. The wait staff and sommelier were very professional.
We were there to celebrate my boyfriend birthday. Jack was our waiter and he was amazing. Benchmark is our favorite place.
We enjoyed our dinner. Food was excellent and staff was very attentive.
Service was outstanding and food was incredible! We will be back!
Wonderful meal and service for our 22nd wedding anniversary! Everything was top notch - from the pre-meal cocktails to the amazing lobster bisque to the steak and beautifully prepared sea bass to the delectable sides to the fantastic wine and complimentary champagne toast! Everything was simply perfect! Well done! I would recommend it for a special night or if you just want an awesome meal! These guys do it right!
Best fillet in Toledo. Very pricey, but perfect for a special day!
The food was great (as usual), our server was attentive but also allowed us to enjoy a date night, and the manager seemed very aware of what was going on with the staff and guests which was refreshing. The evening was absolutely great!
First time there. Restaurant was busy, noise level was very loud. Wait staff even commented on that. Tables are wide so I felt like I needed to yell at my group in order to be heard.
Ordered the Old Timer cocktail. Came out in a dirty glass & for $12, I guess I expected more in the presentation. 1 cherry on a skewer & glass 3/4 full. Decided on the salmon dinner which came with mashed potatoes & broccolini. Salmon was perfectly done. Potatoes were tepid at best, broccolini was almost too tough to cut. Had to saw at it for a bit.
Overall, the waiter we had did a great job. The ambiance was more of a sports bar. Food & drinks, not worth repeating for the price.
Wonderful as always!
Amazing staff! Amazing Food and great service! This was our first time visiting, We ate from Chicago and had the best steak we’ve ever had! Thanks chef and team for outstanding cuisine!
A perfect dinner. The steak was cooked to perfection. The wine was top notch.
A wonderful night out! We really enjoyed it!
One of the best places I have ever eaten. From the food to the staff, it was a beyond enjoyable experience. The cocktails were strong and delicious. The staff were very friendly and prompt. I ordered the sirloin with Korean butter and I still can’t stop thinking about it. I’m kicking myself for not ordering the filet instead, because I can only imagine how delicious it would be. However, that means I’ll just have to come back again to try it. The two and a half hour drive would definitely be worth it.
We recently moved to Ohio from New Jersey. Our fist visit to Benchmark was to celebrate my birthday. Food is delicious. This is our new favorite restaurant.
good fresh food. great service. excellent atmosphere.
Thank you so much Ben amazing service!!!
Start with the Avocado Toast. It does not disappoint, despite it's unique description.
Perfect place for a date. It’s our favorite restaurant!
Great service. Great food. As always. It is our place to go.
Great dinner as always. Best steak in Toledo!
The food and service were both fantastic. Our waitress was very attentive and very helpful explaining the menu as it was our first visit. We had 2 different cocktails as well as a pour of some great bourbon. Worth every penny. Can't wait to go back.
