New York Sirloin
Great food, wine and service as usual! My group and I love coming here for business lunches and will be back.
We ate outside in their sidewalk (COVID) tent. There's plenty of room and even on this rather cold rainy night, the tent kept us dry and warm enough to feel safe. There's a slight breeze as the tent is open on each (long) end, and the occasional foot traffic didn't bother us.
Benjamin's steaks are very good. I had a bone-in ribeye, which is always my favorite. I asked for it medium rare with a bit of a char on the outside. The kitchen did not disappoint one bit. And since the waiter saw I was debating between a glass of Cabernet vs. the Petite Syrah, he brought me a taste of both to help me make up my mind. Very nice touch (I chose the PS). Service remained attentive throughout.
I was lucky not to have to pay for this dinner, but the host casually commented that the bill was "very reasonable" for what we had. I've been to The Benjamin several times before COVID, and while the outdoor atmosphere (tent) isn't like it is inside, the experience was as good as can be.
This was the second time dining in two months. The first time in August I have no complaints. The service was excellent and the food was great. This time around the service was slower. It was over 40 minutes between the app and main course. The chocolate molten cake was over cooked so it was solid. The steak orders were not correct. We didn’t complain since we were too busy enjoying our business lunch but we made mental note to think twice next time around. It was probably one of those off moments.
Took the work team out for a much needed lunch and in real life experience. This place was awesome. Service, drinks, food all four star.
Enjoyed the lunch special...great choices and so nice not to have supplements among the choices.
Excellent steak dinner! Sat inside. Service was very good and attentive. Managers came over several times to make sure everything was okay.
Great experience overall. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Best service.
Food mediocre. Huge disappointment. Lovely maitre d' and excellent server.
Ambiance outside very pleasant although there was a large party of 8-10 nearby who were very noisy. But that happens often on a Sat night. Big issue is the food. They need a new chef. Prices are high and should be of quality of other steakhouses but food (and drink pours) do not compare to Spark's on East 46th.
Delicious food and excellent service! Highly recommend!
A little pricey but overall good
I have been dining at Benjamin’s for many occasions in the past and I had nothing but a great impression, but this time was unexpectedly disappointing. I ordered the Power Lunch for me and my guest. Both of our Sirloin steaks were very thin, tough to cut (even with the steak knives), very well done although we both ordered “medium”. I also requested a candle to celebrate my guest’s birthday in a Memo of Open Table reservation and I called ahead around 11:40 to confirm it. First, they couldn’t find my reservation, then confirmed it and the birthday request as well. When we got there, we were brought to the small table right near the entrance where there was notably the busiest traffic of passers-by and staff, so we requested to change the table a little far away from the entrance out of many empty tables. In addition to the very disappointing main course, my guest’s desert didn’t have a candle.
Dinner was fabulous. They do a great job with outdoor dining and steak is completely on par with Lugars without having to go to Brooklyn. I will be back
Had a quick last minute date night with my boyfriend, we were going to go to STK near by but we didn’t like the vibe. Even though we were dressed super casually, the staff was very welcoming and accommodating as soon as we walked in. It’s much more relaxed, quiet and dark at Benjamin. Highly recommended the crab cakes, thick cut bacon, Porterhouse for 2, Brussels sprouts and cheesecake for dessert!
Sent my parents for their wedding anniversary and they had a great time. They enjoyed their meal and had great service. We will be going back for ourselves soon!
Excellent food and amazing service. Wonderful wine selection. Really good experience.
A great dining experience. I feel like family when I dine at Benjamin. Always a great meal with the best of service and unparalleled food!
As usual, Benjamin Prime never disappoints! We were fortunate to be one of the first people for indoor dining and the restaurant took all the necessary precautions to make the experience safe and pleasurable. Without a doubt the best steakhouse in the city - pre or post pandemic. The staff treats you like a FAMILY and goes above and beyond to provide one of the best dining experiences you can have. All the best of luck to Benjamin Prime for future success.
Food and service was spectacular as always - never a disappointment
Benjamin Steakhouse Prime is the best restaurant - steal or otherwise!
The $39 3 course lunch meal is a great steal. Crab cake wasn’t all that, but the sirloin steak was amazing. 10/10
Awesome date night with my husband. We can’t wait to come again.
Was amazing!!!! Been to a lot of 5 stars restaurants and that food
Was the best, no exaggeration!!!
I bought a dear friend out to lunch to a good New York Steakhouse. I had never been to Benjamin Steakhouse Prime before. We were thinking of the Price Fixed $39 lunch but I really wanted to sample what this restaurant really had to offer. We had 2 glasses of very nice red wine. The Porterhouse Steak for two wish home fries and spinach which was as good as it gets. Terrific! My former Boss had an appetizer bacon and tomato salad which was wonderful. I had the lobster bisque which was very good but the oyster cracker were a little stale. We had coffee and split a piece of key lime Pie for desert. The pie was a little old. We chalked in up to the lack of business during the pandemic. I spend a lot of money for this lunch and it was worth every penny. We both will go back again. Great steak!!!
It’s so great and fabulous food.
I will be back so soon.
Great food, friendly service
Sean & his team was awesome 👏🏽 as always. Lunch with my girlfriend was very relaxing thanks to the atmosphere Sean & his staff provides, of the food is always top notch
I was restless because it was a table facing the road
Was a bit scepter about outdoor/street dining, but it turned out pretty well. Food was delicious and service was great!
Great job with outdoor dining environment. Staff and service top quality as always
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!
Food was delicious !
Spectacular food and great service! Our server Ari was great and very kind!!
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.
One of the best porterhouse steaks I’ve ever had.
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.
The food and service is ALWAYS incredible. One of my favorite restaurants to dine with.
The food, whether the oysters, tuna tartare or a steak is always delicious!!!!!!
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.
Very good food. I really enjoyed coming back to here. Very noisy with trucks and cars passing by but given the restaurant location, this need to be expected.
Our waiter Arie was the best, definitely going back.
