Four of us stopped here for dinner before a show at Madison Square Garden. Our host for the evening had called ahead, and within minutes of being seated we had the HUGE seafood platter on our table. Our group ordered steaks, sea bass, and Kobe burger; no one was disappointed. Service was attentive without being intrusive, and the maitre d'... More

Many friends have tried different steakhouses in New York, many being very expensive. I found Ben and Jacks by chance and since it was lunchtime dropped in for a New York Sirloin. The result was prompt service and super steak cooked exactly as I requested. It had great flavours and was tender. It was about $30 plus drinks so I'd... More

I booked the porthouse room for a private event in August and I couldn't have been happier. The service we received was fantastic, the waiters were excellent and tended to all our needs. There was 17 in our party, we all ordered different food. The order was taken perfectly, no mistakes. The steaks were amazing the best we have tasted,... More

This is a must do thing in NYC if you like steak. The service is fantastic, the food unbelievable and the setting quiet nice. It is a little pricey but is definitely worth every cent.

We were hoodwinked by the concierge in our hotel into going here. He told us he eats there often and can get a glass of wine a steak and side for $40. We thought that sounded great and walked over. Immediately we noticed the prices were way higher than we were lead to believe. They have steak for 2 etc... More

Overrun with waiters and our waiter was fairly good, gave us good info regarding portions etc.. Food was good, steaks were nice but unfortunately not up to the standard of Keens steakhouse in my opinion. We enjoyed our dinner... More

We had the fixed-price NYC Restaurant Week menu: Starters: soup of the day (beef & rice) & mixed green salad Mains: both had sirloin steak -served with broccoli & mash potato with... More

We were here on a weeknight, there was a pretty good crowd, about 3/4 full. Our waiter was accommodating, while not particularly warm. But he knew his menu and wine list. The cuts are incredibly large, my filet was probably 75% larger than I get most places. But it was all excellent.

We were looking for a good steak house in Midtown NYC and our hotel recommended Ben and Jack's (29th and 5th) . We enjoyed our visit - the food was excellent with ample portions, the service was very good and the ambience good. Definitely a place to go if you are looking for a great steak.
