Fantastic service and wonderful steaks

For me always the food is the most important and here we had four of the best steaks ever. Superb cuts of meat and perfectly cooked to meet our personal requirements.

It felt like everyone else there was having a business meeting. Not an issue...just lots of dudes on expense accounts. Our Meal was nice. Pricey, but a good Meal.

We recently visited Benny's. My husband mentioned our anniversary when making the reservation, and they prepared a special night for us! We were seated in a great booth and served us champagne on the house. Our menu had an anniversary message on it for us. We had the crab cake appetizer--full of crabmeat. Our steaks were very good too. Mashed... More

Went to Benny's for lunch. What an upscale place to eat. Sat in the Bar, the waiter was wonderful. You MUST order the Lobster grilled cheese. Might be the best sandwich I have ever had.

I would change nothing about our night at this classic chop house. The service was professional and attentive. The wine list had some buried gems. The food was perfect. Ok, if I could change the prices I would. But , while expensive, you get what you pay for. And they have live music most nights. We will be back.

Great steakhouse. My daughter and I make it a tradition to hit a steakhouse in every city we visit - we've been to Chicago (& it's various steakhouses) a few times and this year we tried Benny's. We loved the steaks and will be back. The lobster mac and cheese was amazing. Only complaint I have is the "by the... More

For a special birthday, we went to Benny's and it was Fabulous! We almost changed plans based on some reviews, but are glad we didn't....so glad. The Hostess suggested the maple bacon appetizer. We are indebted to her for nudging us toward the most amazing food we've ever eaten. Not just the best bacon, but the best food substance ever.... More

It was so nice to have a server explain the differences in the Natural, Traditional, and dry aged cuts. Made my decision a lot easier. Exquisite meal and service. The Banana Cream pie was the best I have ever had! Thank you and I shall return next time I am in Chicago!
