Did I go to a different restaurant than the others?

After looking through the other reviews of this restaurant I was surprised at how bad an experience I had. In fact a little shocked. People talked up the food and experience quite a bit and I just did not have the same experience. I went to Ben & Jack's for the first time for the Taste of Magic... read more

However we have had exceptional service and wonderful food. Best scallops and best sea bass ever! (Yes this is a steak place but the seafood is... More

We ordered the house steak for two and made the mistake of adding too many side dishes. The steaks were excellent, especially the mignon, but we were somewhat over faced by the volume. Excellent attentive service.

In general, we don't expect too much from Restaurants in the USA but Ben & Jacks was a real surprise. We went for a Sunday lunch. We were a party of 10 made up of six adults and four children. A large circular table had been set up for us which was well positioned and there was sufficient space around... More

It was the Saturday before Christmas and we wanted to splurge a little. Our hotel concierge made us a reservation at Ben and Jack's. It is a very classic steak house. The interior could be in a mob movie. There is a coat check and a fantastic bar. I ordered wine which was excellent. Our waiter was rather rushed so... More

A real New York treat. Has the look of a classic steak house. Staff are friendly and polite without being over fussy. They wear a great uniform and look smart. It isn't the cheapest steak you will find but I think worth every penny. You can have individual steaks or steak to share. I've been here twice and had the... More
