The porterhouse for two is an excellent steak. The salads were good while the creamed spinach was excellent. This place is as good as Peter Luger but in a much better location with much better ambiance.

Wonderful atmosphere, warm but not pretentious. Superb steaks (we had the ribeye and the filet) and the Benjamin salad with crabmeat for two. Excellent Malbec by the glass. Memorable night with exceptional service.

In NYC and longing for a great steak and warm atmosphere? Seek out this fabulous restaurant. My husband had the filet mignon cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the Chilean Sea Bass and was not disappointed...what a treat; it was succulent! Our waiter, Bruno, was engaging, attentive and his service was excellent along with all who served us. Nick, the manager,... More

The only negative was that it was fairly loud and crowded. But then, what else can you expect at a popular restaurant in NYC? We had reservations and were seated immediately. Our server was punctual, polite, and very helpful with advice. He even advised us to avoid ordering salads because our appetizer and steak/lobster tails would be more than filling.... More

We arrived with high expectations given some on line reviews and local recommendation but our dinner at Benjamin Steakhouse fell way short. Atmosphere and service from our waiter, Walter were fine but our Steak for 2 was ordered medium well and arrived medium rare so after apologies it was taken back and cooked some more. Walter was apologectic and in... More
