This is an awesome restaurant and has a nice atmosphere. In any other city it would be a 5 star, but in NYC it gets 4. The steak was close to Lugars but not quite there, and the apps fell a bit short (particularly the bacon). I enjoyed it but will probably try other spots on my next trip to... More

We had a table booked for 7pm and arrived bang on time. We eventually got a table at 7:45pm. I know it's Christmas time but the staff really have to manage this kind of thing. The restaurant is noisy to the point where it is difficult to have a conversation. Having said that the service and food were very good.... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by the concierge of our hotel. It was hard to get a table but he managed. When we arrived we were asked to wait and suggested to order a drink at the bar. Before the drinks arrived the table was fixed. Fast and efficient. The place was packed with people and a lot of... More

We went to this place on a recommendation of a family member. We showed up early for our reservation which they couldn't find. We waited a short time to be seated, which was nice. After that, we felt like we were being rushed the whole time. We weren't asked if we wanted any cocktails and were hovered over to order... More

My wife and I have dined here several times, We went for lunch on December 17. Even though the restaurant was very busy, the Manager (Mario) greeted us by name, our table was ready on time, and we never felt rushed or pressed. Our waiter (Ricky) remembered us, and remembered the kind of wines we had drunk before. His recommendations... More

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge on a trip to New York. They had a specific Thanksgiving menu which looked good. We arrived 5 mins ahead of the allotted time only to be told we had to wait as we were late. We expressed surprise and the staff were quite dismissive. Nonetheless, we did not wait long for our...

My first visit to Benjamin's in July 14 and to be honest, I was a little sceptical. However, the dinner turned out pretty well and we enjoyed the steak and crab cakes very much! The light in the restaurant was a little dim but it also created a very cosy atmosphere for intimate conversations. Would recommend my friends to this... More

This restaurant was a recommendation of the hotel concierge and they booked a table for 2 at 8pm on our behalf. We showed up at 8pm to be told that they couldn't find our reservation and it would be a 20 minute wait. 50 minutes later we were still sat in the lobby/lounge area. We went over to the lady...
