    I had the duck which was cooked perfectly. My companion enjoyed the skirt steak. The special cocktails were great and the service was attentive without being overbearing. The low lighting and inviting table settings added to a great dining experience.

    I brought a friend for a birthday celebration. The evening was perfect from beginning to end. Special thanks to Tatiana, our hostess, who noted and honored my table request and also to Vincent, our waitperson for his attentiveness and charm throughout the evening. The entire wait staff is always spot on, filling water glasses, clearing dishes, etc. to enhance the dining experience. All the food served was delicious, particularly the February cheese special, the tartiflette. Thanks to the chefs! If you have a special event, do not pass up this experience.

    Benoit has always been a favorite restaurant of ours in New York and never fails to provide fine dining and ambiance. The quality of the ingredients, preparation, and presentation can always be counted on. The wait staff is very pleasant and helpful worth five stars in my book. A true French experience in New York.

    Nice atmosphere and attentive service. Had a very authentically French character. Portions are exceeding small even by haute-cuisine Parisian standards, but the dishes were tasty. Nothing overly experimental or pretentious, but honest traditional recipes.

    Benoit is one of the finest restaurants in the city, with an elegant ambience and great cuisine. The wine-by-the-glass list is superb, and service impeccable. The menu is deep enough to come back time and time again without repeating. Try it!

    Amazingly attentive staff - helpful, quick, great advice on wine selection, seamless teamwork. Wow! The food is always delicious, cooked perfectly, and usually has some kind of updated twist. I love the ambience. There isn’t a bad seat because even diners who face the wall can people watch - mirrors are perfectly placed to be too high to see oneself but low enough to watch who’s coming and going and groups of people who are delighted to be there. Couldn’t have asked for a better evening. The food is a bit more expensive than average but well worth it because it’s waaaay above average food. Thank you!

    The bar is beautiful. The dining room French bistro meet modern twist. The food is lovely. The service wonderful. They were very accommodating to make sure we made it to the theater in time. The only reason we didn’t give it a 5 star is because both fish entrees were slightly overcooked. We will definitely be back.

    We regularly dine at Benoit in NYC. It’s something to which we look forward. Not this time. The flavor of my Dover sole was great, but the portion size was half its normal size. The price was not. The a la carte green beans were undercooked about 3-4 minutes. The service was awful. They were busy, but there were some empty tables. The waiter was inattentive. Don't know whether we’ll keep Benoit on a our regular list. Hope the Paris location has not gone downhill.

    Great service, It is very pleasant to visit. This is Europe in NYC. It is relatively quite and civilized. The food used to be excellent. I suspect some change of chef, which I can see from Quenelle (which used to so good...but now it is different.) and Souffle.

    Lovely room. Classic menu. Food was very good without being special. Lots of staff doing their best, but service felt a little unpolished. Total cost was $100/pp without any alcohol or tip - felt pricey for the experience. Location is very convenient to City Center.

    My wife and I ordered the exact same things. Foie Gras as the appetizer and Roast Duck as the main course. Tasted good. But very strangely, the plates that my wife was served had smaller portions than I did for both the appetizer the main dish. Very odd. I decide not to complain about it, because I thought it would embarrass my wife that we were asking for larger portions for her!

    This past weekend I went to one of my favorite restaurants/bistro for the past several years. To my surprise the disappointment was major. Service was below par and their main concern was pushing drinks. A fish was below standard and was returned, the replacement main dishes were cold and the floor captains were argumentative when we mentioned the flaws. A saving grace was the bar. We sat at the bar for a while before entering the dining room and the service and experience was superb. Do recommend the bar followed by dinner elsewhere. Benoit has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I guess everyone can have a bad night but this one was a major disappointment. We probably will give it another chance but not for a while.

    We started with the egg mayo which was exquisite. We then had the poulet roti for two with frites. The jus is so excellent and goes so well with the chicken and frites. We concluded our meal with a two cheese plate. This restaurant reminds us of visiting a restaurant in the heart of Paris and rings of true French gastronomy! For anyone looking for an inexpensive, yet phenomenal and authentic French meal in the city, should have Benoit on the list! We love this place!

    Great food, great service. I had the Arctic Char and it had crispy skin, and melted in my mouth. My friend had the hand-chopped beef tartare and it too was really nice. We started with escargot, and they were superb. A crispy toast on each one.

    The service was outstanding. The food was not great. Some items on the menu were better than others. I would not recommend the Quenelles de brochet, it was too rich and the taste was not good. The rice side was watery.
