Two of us ordered filet mignon, and a third ordered porterhouse. All were quite good, though I thought my filet mignon was a little on the salty side. But it was still quite good. The side dishes were good. Total bill with two bottles of malbec was around $400. I actually thought it was a reasonable bill for Midtown Manhattan. I'd go there again.

Be ready for an extra $ 2 charge on top of the cost of a drink if you order a martini (no ice in a drink )on top of a $400 bill for a good steak. Manager has a bad attitude: “everybody does it” so stop complaining. Not my experience, so there is a Better idea, stop going to this place even though the steak was good.

Usually get their Rib Eye when I go, this time sat at the bar and enjoyed a piping hot dish of pasta bolognese. Very flavorful and a huge portion. Only available at their bar though.

Their cheesecake is a must always, just make sure you leave room for a slice.

Once again Benjamin's did not disappoint. From the moment we stepped foot in the door, everyone was more than accommodating, courteous and professional. No issues splitting a steak with my daughter. The food was delicious and the seasoning on the filet was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful dinner to top off a happy fourth of July in the city.
See you all again soon, Ava Spadaro

It was our first time to this restaurant in NY. We had heard good things about it. The restaurant had a very comfortable feel to it especially being a nice steakhouse. The food preparation and quality was excellent with the steaks we had. The lobster bisque was one of my favorites. Crab cakes were very good along with the house special salad. Wine list is very good with good selections in red and whites at comfortable and higher price ranges depending on the type of dinner you are having. Main plus for us was the service. The manager Mario came by our table to see how we were doing a few times. Our server Nick was great. He had good recommendations on the food and preparation as well as being a good guy. The others taking care of the table were very good also with water and keeping things clear in the table. Will definitely go back again when we are back in the area.

Still in love with this place. I've been coming here for awhile now and it's still one of the best experiences I've received. The food is always stupendous, the services is always outstanding, the atmosphere is always comfortable and I'll always be coming here for years to come. There's no other steakhouse that I would rather be, nothing beats the best and this place is definitely the best.

We went there with my 13 yr old son on our last day in New York and it was my son who came across the restaurant by google , we were looking for a good steak in NY and to be sure we were not disappointed.
My wife and son had the lump crab i think it was called ( Large crab cakes ) starter and they said they were superb. I had shrimp starter , four of the biggest prawns i have ever had. For mains my wife and son had the rib eye and they were two of the largest and finest steaks they said they ever had. I had surf and turf , fillet mignon with lobster, shrimp and crab, cooked to perfection and delicious. We only had fries and a bottle of red, nothing else required. Cheese cake and creme caramel to finish again superb.
The restaurant is beautiful large open plan, nice bar with a large fireplace. Waiter staff know the menu so well and are so attentive.
For us this is a treat as it is well above the normal pricing but well worth it. When in New York again we all said we would definitely go back.
