This location was not doing well . The owner owns the Ledgewood location as well . It was a good meal but he didn't do enough business. We go to Ledgewood often great chef ,wait staff very friendly and Melissa and Bob will see to your libations at the bar

My family and I love this place-the food, service, atmosphere, everything! The only gripe-It will close in 3 months as the rent is going up. Too bad-I have been going to this Bensi since it opened.

Felt the need to write a review after my recent visit. This location had the best pizza around, and my wife and I would go every Friday night. I'm not sure what's happened, but it's terrible now. It's obvious the crust comes into the store pre-made and frozen. I see no difference vs the crap you buy at the local... More

My wife decided to forgo the traditional BBQ on the 4th and opt for dinner at Bensi's instead. It was our first experience at this restaurant chain. She chose the skirt steak over broccoli and I had the Broiled Seafood Misto. Our drinks were Strawberry Margaritas and Banana Daiquiris. It was a bit of a wait, but the food finally... More

The food is just ok and the portions are huge. I did really like the green bean salad - the beans were fresh and crunchy. Tiny bar and really loud, echo-y room. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

I've been to Bensi twice. People seem to love it. The first time was the Denville location. The food wasn't great. The prices were high and it was noisy. The Hackettstown location was much, much nicer. The service couldn't be better - friendly and attentive. The prices were still very high. The quality - I had shrimp scampi - was... More

I like it here, quiet, fast service, nice and relaxing. The outdoor patio is great. Wilson is a good bartender, always takes care of us.

Have been to Bensi twice. Both times a big disappointment. Between poor quality waitstaff and greasy, tasteless food and slow service. Won't make a mistake of going a third time. They are not inexpensive either.

We must eat here about two times every three weeks and the food is always good. Whether veal or eggplant parm you can't loose. You get your choice of great homemade soups, salad or pasta to complete your meal. The service is always good and the menu large enough to give you a great meal foronths to come.
