Yes, glass. I ordered a vegetable juice and there was a piece of glass in it. I called them to let them know about it and they didn't even offer a gift certificate, refund, free drink...nothing. They thanked me for letting them know and went on with their day. I'm not even sure how glass gets in juice.

We were just passing by and stopped in for an early lunch. What a wonderful surprise! The burgers were so good! You could tell they were handmade patties and perfectly grilled. Even the gentleman at the next table commented that he wished he had ordered a burger.

I can't say much about this restaurant because we only stopped for a smoothie while waiting for a family member to meet up. The smoothies were expensive (like any smoothie, especially in New York City), but came from a varied list of delicious options. You can order here or self-serve at a counter of pastry sorts. They are serious about... More

My sister, niece and I ate here after watching a play. We had walked a long way on a hot day, so we settled on this place after we couldn't walk anymore. Benvenuto Cafe looks more like a take out place, actually. There were tables far in the back and no one pointed to us the way to go. While... More

We happened across this place and were in need of breakfast, like most places in New York, if you do not immediately know what to order then you get treated as a second class. We ordered our breakfast and they wanted a tip for ordering, i tipped a dollar and got the cold shoulder, the only service we had was... More

This place offers much more than just a smoothie but that's all we got there and we were not disappointed. Mine smoothie was strawberry and blueberry and my other half got cantaloupe and pineapple, really nice and refreshing :) we weren't hungry but if we were we would have stayed there for some food as the salad bar looked amazing...

Do not get me wrong, there is nothing "special" or extraordinary about this place BUT I love their eggs Benedict with salmon. I has actually not been on a menu for year or two but they still make it upon a request. I got actually a bit embarrassed as the waitress last time asked me about whether I always order... More

My husband, best friend and I recently had breakfast at Benvenuto. We sat outside which was great for people watching. The breakfast was reasonably priced and the service and the food was very good.
