Amazing!

I’m very petite and I don’t eat much, so a steak for 2 was way too much food for us. I wish I knew the size of the portion ahead of time. But other than that it’s amazing!

Enjoy!

The steak is excellent. Among the best in Manhattan. Sides and appetizers are good but the desert is below par.

Not impressed at all. Steak was tough and juts not good. I have no issue spending on a good meal but this was 250 all in for two of us to eat and we both left dissatisfied, unimpressed and intent on not going back. We had eaten at Keens on our last trip and that was incredible, similar price wise but amazing door, great ambience and decor and juts overall what you want in a NYC steakhouse experience. Benjamin Steakhouse we found online and it said that celebrities tended to favour it. That would make one think it was higher end and quality. I wouldn’t recommend it. I have been to steakhouses all over the world with my work travel and this one was not great. The manager was walking around asking how people were enjoying their meals and was visibly not impressed when we said “it’s okay”. He was expecting us to be effusive and excited. Had the food, service and ambience warranted it, we would have. As I said Keens was great and Sparks is our next trip because of the Mob history. Hopefully it will be a great true NY steakhouse.

I have often said this about Benjamin's and it still holds true to this day. You may be able to find a steakhouse as good as Benjamin, but you'll never find one better. The food is top notch, the service is attentive, and the atmosphere is fantastic. Benjamin's is the best.

Excellent New York strip steak!!! One of the best I've ever had. My girlfriend's sea bass was excellent as well. The Benjamin's home fries were ok at best. Overall, a great dining experience!

Service was excellent. Waiters were very attentive and friendly. Loved the decor. My wife and I ordered the porter house and it was cooked to perfection. Wife loved the jumbo shrimp. Highly recommend Benjamin steaks if you want to celebrate a special occasion. Can’t wait to go back.

Service was rushed and mediocre at best.
We were not offered the a la carte menu, and waiter informed us after ordering our mains that we a limited selection of desert because we were limited to prefix.
This was particularly disappointing because I chose the Benjamin because when I called about the reservation, they told me that the regular menu was being offered that night.
Service was so rushed the waiter asked us for our dinner order before we ordered a drink.
Steaks were super charred but otherwise tasty.
Overall our guests and my fiancé were not impressed.

Service was wonderful and the food incredible. My only qualm is that I wanted to see the whole menu and we were only given the Valentine prixe fixe menu. It's definitely pricey but the food was great.

Unfortunate to write this, we were so looking forward to dining here. Owners, staff and service could not have been more accommodating. We were among the first to be seated for a busy Valentine's Day Dinner - I'm sure not an easy night for restaurants. I would have expected our steaks to be properly prepared since the kitchen was not busy, however, that was not the case. I'm going to hope that our meals were prepared while the chefs were still in prep mode for the rest of the evening.

I will not be returning, probably one of the worst experiences culinary wise. Hopefully the kitchen was prepared for the later dinner reservations.

Came here My Wife’s 30th birthday and it was a amazing experience the food was very very good. We got the dried aged steak for 2 with Benjamin’s own home fires with blue cheese melted on top. The blue cheese was an extra $3 but it was worth it, the cheese brought a whole new dimension to the home fries that i have never experienced before. The creamed spinach was also amazing but the steak man that steak it ranked right up there with Peter lugers and Keens. It came on a sizzling hot plate and the waiter actually pressed the meat against the plates edge adding flavor

The staff are very friendly and pleasant. My hubby’s b-day dinner and our waiter brought us the cheesecake with candle on it, and sang the song as well. Nice gesture.
The steak is probably better than P&L, and absolutely delicious!!! The best steak we ever had. The salmon was so fluffy inside and crispy outside, very good. Mac and cheese with lobster - the best m&c we ever tasted.
Expensive so we can’t afford to go on a regular basis but for a special occasion, totally worth it. The wine selection is superb too.
It was a perfect dinner !
