Delicious lunch . Wonderful atmosphere---you fell as though you are in Paris! Waiter from Corsica was so pleasant and attentive. Be careful as you order the wine-- there were 2 columns as is common --one for "By the Glass" and another which one would assume was by the bottle--but NO--the second column is by "carafe"--the bottle price is almost double...

For our annual trip in NYC, we always enjoy having several dinners during that particular week at Benoit. We like the Parisian Brasserie décor and its menu. We tried different specialties but really prefer the pate en croute, the quenelles de brochet....the cassoulet is excellent but it is a big casserole, preferable to pick it for lunch! The desserts are... More

This is a very nice French restaurant with an excellent menu. Our appetizer was a special of the night, pan roasted foie gras which we both were impressed with. For the main course we had the Chatham Cod with glazed endives and oranges, which was perfectly prepared and presented, plus the roasted quail with foie gras stuffing with green savoy... More

Extremely friendly and accommodating. We were a large party with a constantly changing number of quests. The staff was flexible and sweet about the many changes. We ended at a large booth and enjoyed a perfect Sunday brunch. Merci! Aussi, la cuisine est bonne!

Well situated near the Museum of Modern Art and Fifth Avenue shopping, Benoit has the feel of a Paris eatery. The restaurant's interior is lovely, and the service unhurried. Food, however, is not quite up to the restaurant's former standards. The menu, featuring bistro classics, seems tired and in need of updating. The lively bar scene which was in full... More

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst shopping and was very surprised by its beauty when inside. We had a huge burger and chips as a quick lunch before going on a tour with a very nice glass of wine. The atmosphere was elegant and enjoyable and the food huge and tasty!

The restaurant's design and decor transports the diner to a Paris that one's seen in movies. Who knows if it ever existed but I like to travel. Benoit serves Escargot that's truly yummy. Garlic, burbling, sizable snails - delectable. Accompanied by a lovely glass of Clos Lunes. What was bland was the lobster salad served as an entree. Just not... More
