In search of the holy grail of steaks, there are very few steakhouses in New York City, whose time-honored tradition stands alone: classic dishes prepared to perfection, prime dry-aged steaks, classic steakhouse menu, delectable seafood and exemplary customer service.

Our second visit to Ben and Jacks was just as delicious as the first earlier this year. Started with drinks at the bar which has a nice intimate ambiance. Followed this with dinner. Steaks were excellent. We were early diners at 5:30 on a Wednesday but by the time we finished around 7 it was fairly full so reservations would be highly recommended. We had sides of the brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes both great but obviously you’re going here for the steaks. 2 of us had the petite filet and one had the rib eye. Very satisfying as far the the quantity. Highly recommend and hope to return on our next visit to New York.

Average steak house, but the service was poor. The waiter recommended a more expensive wine that was patently inappropriate and forgot a diner’s severe allergy consideration.

Ben and Jacks strives to be exceptional in providing outstanding food and beverage . They have surpassed my expectations in service and dry aged steaks . Start off your evening with happy hour drink and Grade A blue point oysters . After that move on to a nice dry aged porterhouse which just melts in your mouth its so tender . Ask for Dino and Vegim for the best recommendations for drinks and wine . They are the best in providing top notch service that gives attention to detail . Hodgey the manager makes sure everything meets your expectations and checks in on you often. Can't wait to return for Ben and Jacks has proven to be the Quintessential steak house in New York city . 10 stars and thumbs up . shout out to Mike behind the bar !

Food was not as good as I remembered last time I was here 3 years ago. While my meat was perfectly cooked, it was very bland. I brought my husband here because I was so impressed during my last visit. Sadly, we both left disappointed. Maybe it was an off night. I gave 4 stars because the service was great.

Everything from start to finish was amazing! The service and attention was excellent. We were there for my friend’s birthday and took advantage that it was restaurant week. Once they knew it was her birthday, they made sure she felt special. They were on point with the dessert, drinks, everything. Ill definitely be back!

Came here to try it out during restaurant week. The filet mignon was amazing! I prefer my steak medium and it was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was great, excellent service, constantly checking on us. All of the staff you encounter here is very helpful. The ambiance is nice. The waiter told us his uncle did all the work inside! A great experience and will definitely return

It was 7 of us,Food was good, i had the sirloin steak, mash potatoes and broccoli. For dessert i had the carrot cake which was also delicious. My guest had the fried calamari and said it was cooked to perfection. The mac and cheese was also pretty decent. Service was amazing, waiters were very attentive, they actually served our food, and continuously poured our wine. No complaints.

I did not see there was a sign when we seated. Missing knife on the table, so I had to ask after they served basket of bread. I ordered medium rare for my sirloin, came well done. Had to wait 15 minutes to get steak knife at steakhouse. One of the waiters told me they are busy as an excuses for their services.
I will never go back there again. I should have went to the restaurant I know. This was a first time and last time they will ever see me there.

Went for NY restaurant week, otherwise not my scene. Very midtown corporate/conservative. Steak was decent, tender, tho a bit oily somehow and sat heavily in the stomach later. Service was fine.

Greeted warmly and seated promptly. Professional staff very attentive. Pre fixe meal was just right with a smallish steak and accompaniments with a nice dessert. Drink menu met my expectations and the meal flowed delightfully with an ambience that was classy yet not pretentious. Felt very welcome and would recommend for a date night

I went for Restaurant Week (Summer 2019). The portions were generous and the food was delicious! I had the lobster bisque, seafood pasta, and chocolate mousse cake for dessert. Great value for the money - especially when other restaurants skimp out with their restaurant week menus.
