We had a lovely dinner in mid-week at this restaurant. We had a mix of traditional (excellent flavorful onion soup) and modern (a plate of there interesting appetizers), and two well-prepared entrees. The service was extremely attentive without being obtrusive. We would happily go there again.

This is an authentic French looking bistro restaurant, with an authentic menu of interesting French dishes. My French onion soup was particularly good and all the rest of our party enjoyed their dishes. Service was very professional and good humoured, the wine was good and not overpriced for NY. I recommend the restaurant and will return.

A very nice restaurant in New York, with very nice food. We enjoy to go there time to time despite wines are a little too expensive... It would also be great to see the menu changing time to time despite "tarte tatin" is one of our favorite desert.

Me and my family went to Benoit for New Year's Eve dinner and had a great time. We had to wait 40 min to sit, despite having a reservation, but considering the celebration, it was OK.

On 01/24/2015 you wrote Benoit..great food...unctuous staff Had been to this restaurant in 2008 and recently returned. While the decor and food had been wonderfully French, the wait staff was inattentive and unctuous, all this in a restaurant not even half-full...in fact in 2008, while hosting a business dinner with some Finnish clients, I had complained and to my surprise,...

With everything going on relight now in the world, if you have a hankering for a good french meal, we are lucky to have such a wodnerful restaurant in NYC. The service is excellent and the ambiance is very French but no attitude. Ask for the cheese souffle. It is superb. light and tasty. There is a good wine list... More

The food and service do not live up to it's reputation, or that of the famous chef associated with this restaurant. There was nothing really wrong with the food, but it could have been served in any French bistro-type restaurant. Add the fact that there were multiple mix ups with wine service, utensils and missing sauce on several plates to... More

we had dinner Friday night and everything was perfect. The dozen escargot were wonderful, my calfs liver and Sharon's filet were perfectly prepared and served fresh and hot. Very attentive service and a pleasant experience overall. They offer a medium size carafe of wine which is just right for two peoplw

The atmosphere of this bistro is warm and inviting, especially on what was an extremely cold day with significant wind chill. They have a wide selection on their wine list. We ordered a $95 bottle of Givry (Cote Chalonnaise) which had a nice nose but nothing else, and we wanted to give the somm feedback about the wine but she... More

The original plan was to go to a restaurant noted for its good soup, but the line was out the door and down the block -- usually not a big deal, but it was cold and rainy, so we decided to take a chance on Benoit, just a few doors down. It was the best lunch-related decision we'd made in... More
