Trying to find a delicious restaurant to entertain 11 people in NYC without having to takeout a loan is not an easy task. But a knowledgable colleague pointed me in the direction of Benoit for our pre-wedding day gathering. Sorry, but on this experience I didn't take notes or shoot pix to share. The hot gourgeres and slices of crispy... More

For us no trip to Manhattan is complete without a meal at Benoit. This time I had the pheasant with the foie gras sauce. The wine selection was a moderately priced recent burgundy vintage. It could not have been better. Service is impeccable, they even tolerate my heavy accent

Alain du Casse took what had once been one of New York's best restaurants in the days of Henri Soule and brought it back. The Cote Basque decor has been updated (murals removed) as was the menu. The hits d'ourve selection of 3 for $14 5 for $19 was fun, tasty and reasonable. The liver as good as any. Love... More

Made reservations to have lunch here. It was September and 80 degrees and the air wasn't on inside. I was sweating and it made the experience suck. Food was okay but felt a bit tourist tacky. Our waiter seemed to be putting on a French accent as in FAKE. Not much else to say as I was uninspired and couldn't... More

It was Restaurant week and I was thrilled to get such a great tasting for such a swell price. Usually, I indulge in their fantastic CHICKEN and claim any leftovers. This time I went with the luncheon menu and was thrilled to get more than one soft shell crab....way to go! Always a pleasant, fun, Frenchy experience in midtown. Oh,... More

We don't often wander off to this part of midtown from our Sutton place home on weekend, but we were checking out furnitures at Knoll nearby, so stopped in at Benoir for brunch. The look of it is one with a bit of nolstagic touch, but the service kept pace with the by-gone era's attentiveness, both our waiting staff and... More

This was a great experience! Authentic french food! Carefully prepared and at a very fair price! I had a perfect scargot and a even more perfect beef tartare! It is a place worth visiting.

We accidentally ordered the chicken and were surprised to get the whole bird! The meal was lovely and the service was good.

We had the halibut and steak frites, and they were both very good. The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed and the service was excellent. I recommend ordering the souffle for dessert!
