Our first time dining there this evening; food was excellent and the service impeccable; our waiter Ari was very attentive and the managers went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. This will definitely be a repeat stop for us the next time we visit New York. Thank you!

Double header. Best review on YELP and now Open Table.
From our initial hello to our parting goodbye, this was an amazing birthday celebration meal for three porterhouse snobs who have now been converted to 40th St. Benjamin Prime. As a first responder this was a special dinner to celebrate my past birthday and my sons and partners VIRGO birthdays. It was just the best celebration. Benjamin did a great job a making it a very COVID friendly environment and a top notch meal. Thank you.

Food was delicious! Very attentive, exceptional service. Really cute outdoor seating. They really put in their all to make it work & it shows. I wish this rest & so many other rests that are trying to stay afloat & survive all the success in the world. Rest business is already hard. I feel so bad for them. Land of the free?? Yea right! Much luck to them all.

Good news first: The truffled mashed potatoes and crispy brussels sprouts were the best I've ever had. I could go on about those mashed potatoes for days. Bad news: We had the porterhouse for two and filet mignon and they were meh. The filet was better than the porterhouse, but really... no seasoning, a little bit tough - there just wasn't a lot of flavor. For what they charge, it's just not worth it. The service was lovely, but we won't be back.

We never gave this place a second thought even though we live a couple of blocks away, but their outdoor dining setup is very impressive, so we figured why not. The service was wonderful and the food was just as good. A must if you’re in the neighborhood and worth traveling for as well. Support NYC restaurants!

Sean an his team are the best @ what they do. Professionalisms is these guy’s forte they know how to take high class dining to the next level, of course you go there for the 🥩 but the vibes of the place is what really sets the mode. I’ve been going to ALL of they establishments for years so i developed a family relationship with them. Don’t walk run 🏃‍♀️ to Benjamin Prime before the secret gets out about thee guys

I must say the idea of dining in the street did not excite me. However how the Benjamin set up is fantastic. Comfortable and inviting decor. A class A restaurant on the street. The staff was wonderful. We had a great and enjoyable meal. Everyone should come.

Where do I start all the staff was friendly I didn’t even feel I like I was sitting on the street.
The waiter we had was very attentive
The host and I only got one Peterson’s name victor they were amazing . The food was spectacular , the deserts were delicious . The bottle of champagne victor chose for me and mike was perfect . The best dining experience I’ve ever had . Everyone working there was warm and welcoming! Will be going back very soon. I’ve been telling everyone about my 5 star experience. I had baked clams , lamb, Salmon , lobster Mac, spinach & asparagus . All of it extremely yummy everything perfectly cooked and always hot .

An exceptional job was done in moving the restaurant to the street. They managed to keep some of the elegance and atmosphere in a difficult situation. The food and the service was excellent. My only complaint was that the music was too loud.

Dinner was a great as it always has been, outdoor dining in the middle of covid restrictions had both a great vibe and all the safety precautions at the same time. Besides, eating outside on 40th St is a lot quieter than the UES.

Benjamin Prime has done COVID outdoor dinning the right way. Comfortable, protected, and with all the proper safeguards. Dinning here lets you focus on your family/friends and of course the food. Good service backs up the excellent food.
