Its a nice place, with decent food and service. I prefer Keen's or Del Frisco's but this is not terrible. Took a large group of clients, their choice and they seemed to enjoy it. Cozy fire place, large space. Appetizers were amazing....tuna tartare, mozzarella/tomato salad, and calamari!

For many years, every time I travel to New York, I have visited Benjamin. But, on this last occasion, the quality of the products, the service and the taste have not been the best. An unfortunate disappointment. It's time to look for a new Steakhouse place.

Not only was the meat amazing, but the vegetables were delicious and not overcooked as in many steakhouses. The appetizers were also well executed. Portions are large and the drinks generous, as they should be at those prices. Service is friendly, but not overly familiar, very professional and quick. The decor could use a little updating.

I was underwhelmed. Lobster bisque had virtually no lobster meat, maybe a few tiny bits, but was expecting more for almost $20 bowl of soup. I requested my steak to be medium well and it seemed to be closer to medium rare. Noise level was fairly loud making conversation more challenging. Wife’s filet was also under done. The side of asparagus was excellent.

The New York strip steak was absolutely fabulous. Medium Rare and done perfectly. The Crab cake appetizer, the bread and butter/oil were just OK but not at all special. The home fries and blue cheese side order was very good, but not exceptional. I got the sundae and the cappuccino and I have to admit that the whipped cream on the sundae was the best whipped cream I have ever had anywhere. The rest of the sundae was average. The service was really very excellent. Could not have had better service. I wouldn’t recommend it to a friend, though, because only the steak and the whipped cream were outstanding. Other food items were not.

We had a fun filled dinner last night at the Benjamin Steakhouse. Our server, Luke was the master of ceremonies and he didn't disappoint. On top of the great service was the magnificent aged steaks. Although, the restaurant can be a little loud, it didn't interrupt a near perfect night. We will be back soon.

Best stake in NYC! Waiter is extremely nice and helpful. Benjamin salad is big portion for 2 big chunky crab meat is plus. Stake for 2 was amazing!!! Medium is right perfect medium cook and outstanding! creamed spinach is must have with ! The wine we had is from Napa, waiter recommended it tastes also much better than I expected!! Over all one of the best best stake house in NY!

Took my nephew here for a special occasion. The rib-eye steaks were excellent - warm and juicy. My wife had the 2 pound lobster which was tender and sweet. They both had the crime brûlée for dessert, which was delicious. The wine list is extensive and we consumed a great bottle of Australian Syrah. This meal is a splurge but is well worth the visit.

My husband has been going to Benjamin's for business lunches for a number of years and he has absolutely raved about it! He finally took me for a Saturday night dinner. The restaurant exceeded my expectations! The service was superior - the servers were friendly, helpful, attentive, but did not hover. The food was delicious! My filet was cooked perfectly! The wine list is huge. Benjamin's is a splurge and well worth it!

Fantastic dinner with good wine and great draft beer. A bit inconvenient for us that the servers were visibly frustrated that two of our guests were late. They did do a very good job after the two late guests arrived though and we had a great experience.

Amazing experience, Top 3 Steakhouses I've been to. Even my girlfriend agreed. I recommend everyone go out & try it. The filet mignon was exactly done how she asked which is usually a diffult order at other restaurants. We plan on coming back for NYE Dinner. Thank you !

Fabulous dining experience! Our waiter, Genci, was perfection. He guided everyone, thoughtfully, to the best temperature for his/her order based on how the meat has been dried-aged. Service was impeccable, ambiance was perfect, food was scrumptious ... 5 stars across the board.

The food and service was impeccable, but I'd expect nothing less from a NYC steakhouse. I did think they were a bit more pricey than some others I've been to, and would have appreciated a chicken option on the menu.
