We stayed at the hotel across the road so it was convenient for us to go to this restaurant so we went twice.First evening service and steak no complaints. Second evening we weren't even asked if we wanted drinks the server was more concerned about getting our food order. We expected him to come back and ask what drinks we... More

We had a reservation at 8pm. No table - we had to wait 25 minutes - in a crowded bar filled with people eating steaks and busy waiters trying to balance the dishes and serve the bar people while navigating in the crowd. No space for us to enjoy a drink. Which they did not have anyway. We asked for... More

Filet mignon tough. Waiter very surly. Very disappointing. Try somewhere else - Overpriced. Would not dine there again.

Came with friends and shared a steak for 3 which was more than enough. The veg sides weren't great value tho and our server not the most attentive. We had an enjoyable evening as the steak more than made up for the down points. Great wine selection also !

After having two slices of pork loin on Friday night the size of a silver dollar at a different restaurant, I was so excited to be going to Benjamin Steak House for a decent steak. I was so impressed with the treatment from the moment we entered the restaurant, everyone was so courteous and attentive. Our server watched and waited... More

Once again the team at Benjamin's hit it out of the park. From the bacon app to the amazingly juicy Rib Eye, everything was perfect. If you can, save room for their cheesecake! The only thing better than the food is the phenomenal staff at Benjamin's - from the ladies greeting you at the door to Mario, Johnny or any... More

Simply have had much better steaks and service in NY. Personal preference and all but curt service, inaccurate orders and greasy fatty steak plates (for the recommended steak for 2) are just not our thing.

Benjamins offers first class food and service. My only small gripe was the portions were so vast, that I could not possibly finish them which was a shame. Great service though

We booked this restaurant on recommendation from our hotel, and it was very nice. They do make you wait around when you get there and this can be very frustrating when you have made the effort to book a table and get asked to stand there like a lemon for 10 mins, but this said from what I have read...
