    Lovely steakhouse. A favorite work lunch spot for the office. Great service and food. On the pricey side, but the pre-fixe is a good deal. I treated myself to the pre-fixe "power lunch" which was delicious and I had enough to take home for a second meal.

    Always a wonderful experience at Benjamin’s. His restaurants are some of the best in the city. The porterhouse is top notch and the creative tartare appetizers at Prime are one of the highlights of the meal!

    With all of the steakhouse choices in NYC, it is amazing to find one that is so consistently excellent in every aspect: food quality, great cocktails, a beautiful dining room, fantastic service - and especially consistent management attention that genuinely makes you feel like "part of the family". Most highly recommended!

    Unfotunately, our experience was not stellar. I understand the shortage of personnel everyone in the industry is experiencing. However, our waiter seemed to disappear for time to time. We ordered drinks and only most of them arrived togethe; the final portion several minutes later. The same with food. A side dish was omitted and we reminded the waiter when he brought out our meals. Only 15-20 min later did the side dish arrive. I hope our next visist is not as marred.

    Was really disappointed this time. The appetizers and the desserts on the prix-fixe menu were very good but all 3 steaks that we ordered were quite tough. We told the server, and he brought us new steak knives, which helped a little, but not enough. The host brought us a 3rd set of knives, but wasn't ready to accept the fact that the meat itself was tough, saying no one else complained. We didn't make a scene, but felt that the way this was handled left something to be desired. Too bad, because I had spoken so highly of this restaurant to them.

    Appreciated the outdoor dining area on a beautiful evening in NYC. Service was professional. There was no rush to finish. The NY strip steak was good and the shrimp cocktail was very nice. The grilled calamari not so good - will skip next time.
