This restaurant was recommended by our concierge at hotel and it didn't disappoint. I had veal chops that melted in my mouth and my husband had a rib eye steak which was massive. We probably over ordered on veg as it isn't included in price so one portion could have been shared between two. The wine list is enormous and... More

We both love steak and this meal was one of the best steaks we've ever eaten. From beginning to end the whole experience was excellent, great service, great atmosphere and superb food. We booked with the online system and had no problem. Quite pricey but don't mind paying extra for good food, and it certainly was, all three courses. Can... More

Going to Benjamin's has become a tradition for us whenever we return to NY from Abu Dhabi to drop off our son at Boarding school. As usual the food and service was excellent. In fact it was better than last year as the spinach was much tastier and the side dishes were better proportioned. Drawbacks are (1) coming before 8:00pm... More

I am several times per year in USA, and I like steaks very much. In Germany where I live I know very good steak houses, and I am can decide whether a steak is good or not. In Benjamin's my daughter and me ate the best filet mignon ever. I ordered it medium rare, my daughter medium well. Both were... More

This was my first visit to Benjamin's, but I visited with others who frequent the restaurant. A warning.... The portions are huge!!! The wedge salad is excellent. Fortunately I ordered with bacon and it was excellent. We ordered the steak for two. It was enough for three of us with leftovers. Perfectly prepared and excellent explanation of the cuts by... More

A few friends and I have been visiting New York City a weekend of each summer, for the past few years now. With so much to do in so little time not all that we plan to do, gets done. However, each visit is arguably better than the last. The one constant being a Saturday evening dinner and Benjamin's Steak... More

Our first visit to the restaurant with friends who had been before. Staff very welcoming, professional and experienced in cuts of meat. Beautiful atmosphere, clean, crisp tablecloths. A huge choice of wines. Very special experience.

Located right off of Park and 41st, this is a traditional steakhouse and more. The service was perfect and attentive. The portions were huge--a 12 oz. filet cooked to perfection, and less than $50, the price of a petite filet in most other steakhouses. The quality of the meat couldn't have been better. We had four in our party--two ordered... More
