Ben and jacks was overall one of the best Resturant I have been too. I give this Resturant a 6 star if there was such thing. Service was great and the food was delicious. I would definitely be coming back.

This place was absolutely fabulous. The food was delicious and very well prepared. The service was excellent. I cannot say enough good things about Ben and Jack's. I had the bone-in ribeye. It was delectable. I have reduced the amount of beef in my diet, so I had not eaten a steak in a while. That steak was enough to make me add steak back to my diet on a regular basis.

I loved it!!!!

I don't normally write reviews so believe me when I say this restaurant is totally worth it. The service was beyond our expectations and the ambiance was very classy yet relaxing. While the food might be an extra dollar sign in it's classification, it is worth every cent. The fillet mignon was perfect and for the petite size, actually a much larger portion than I expected. The bernaise sauce is a great addition and the asparagus a good choice of side dish. I actually wish we had room to try the dessert! Our compliments to the chef and our waiter!

First time here. Porterhouse steak for 3 was amazing! Loved the steak sauce! (Not that it needed any sauce but I love a good steak sauce! This one rivals Peter Lugar sauce!). The bacon (thick cut) appetizer was also incredible! Only disappointment was the 4 pound Lobster - was rubbery so not sure if it was over cooked or just a bad lobster but certainly not good any any price and as you can imagine was pretty expensive as lobsters go. Would definitely go back and just skip the crustaceans! 🦞

We were a group of six and the restaurant totally lost interest in us toward the end of our meal. Steaks were served without the gravy and it was a challenge to get the proper sides. There seemed to be issues with the kitchen and with the wait service. Not sure how food got served without the right sides or gravy, who's watching out for this type of thing? Seemed to be an overall management issue.

Exellent food, service and ambiance. The portions are generous so make sure you do not order as suggested. A steak for three is adequate for five.

Entire meal from appetizer to dessert was fabulous! They paid attention to everything and our waiter was so friendly and accommodating even though we were ordering the prix fixe. Their sirloin steak was delicious and we make a point to go there on a regular basis, even on holidays. Highly recommend.

Amazingly delicous rib eye!!!!!! Great service. The only reason I gave it four stars, is that I thought the Lobester Bisque could use some work. It wasn't bad but it was on the fishy side and I've had much better.
The steak is amazing as was our side on Onion Rings. We split the ribeye for one as we are not big eaters and it lasted 3 more meals. They got the steak right.

Scallops were wonderful. Steaks were good, but not great. One of ours was ordered medium, came out on the rare side of medium rare, ask to cook it a bit more and came back well done. No much to them outside the butter they were cooked in.

When we were seated, we were placed between two other tables. The volume of their conversations were loud. My wife complained. Immediately Mario, the general manager, moved us to a better table as well as giving us two glasses of champagne. He went above what he could do to please us. Our waiter was great and we had excellent service with the excellent meal. When we ordered dessert, we were given two glasses of port. Completely unnecessary but appreciated. Definitely will go again at our next weekend in NYC.

We have always enjoyed going for the lunch special which is the best bargain in town. The entire meal is prepared with the care they take at dinner and the portions are generous. The French onion soup, sirloin steak and mashed potatoes are fabulous. Highly recommend the key lime pie for dessert. One of our favorite steakhouses at any time. Also, enjoy the nice spacing between tables. A nice selection of wines by the glass, too. Excellent choice for any meal.

Ben and Jack's has done it again ! Top notch steaks , 1.50 happy hour oysters and top shelf drinks , a great wine list and the best service in NYC . This is by far my favorite steakhouse . Ask for Dino or Timmy for the best service . Dont leave without having a bucket of Schlog! Shout out to Admir, Hodgy,and Eko also Ronnie for another 10 star evening . We will be returning again and again. No other restaurant comes close to Ben and Jack's truly a restaurant like no other !

Arrived 730 1/3 full, departed 9PM 25% full if this is an insufficient comment, please read on.

Waitstaff pleasant but unprofessional, bread tray, an embarrassment; sesame crusted tuna appetizer generous and of good quality. Drinks, meh. How difficult is it to make a gin & tonic? T-bone steak cooked as ordered but tasted slightly gamey and not partucularly tender. German Potatoes slightly over cooked & very salty. Asparagus fine. Chopped salad with shrimp...chopped salad with shrimp. Key lime pie was not but whatever it was, it was interesting. Coffee surprisingly good.

Dino was awesome and made my stay memorable. The sirloin was delicious, as were the Brussel Sprouts and Mac & Cheese. The wedge salad was mediocre, but all was redeemed with the beautiful, extremely large, and decadent ice cream sundae with schlag on top! I will go back for sure.
