We try to visit Benedettos frequently as it is one of the best restaurants close to home. We almost always celebrate special occasions here and are never disappointed. Service is top notch and the creativity of the meals is pleasantly surprising. Husband always orders the...full pound of lasagna but I always find a daily special that satisfies. This time is was Sea Bass. Everything is always perfectly prepared, wide variety of craft martinis are enjoyable and the wine list impressive. Save room for the dessert tray!More

We were there last Friday night for the family grandpa's birthday. We had a wide range of dinners from Sea Bass, Ostrich Steak, Veal Chop and more. The appetizers were fantastic, the food was delicious, the mixed drink just right. Service was outstanding. The piano...player added to the atmosphere. Ben and Liz do a great job running their resturant. We will all come back for more!More

I've been a loyal customer to Benedettos for years. During the pandemic we ordered take out regularly to support this restaurant. Great food atmosphere and service. Now when you walk in there are Trump Train stickers...signs calling people sheep for wearing masks, impeach biden in...the bar. I come here for a nice peaceful evening to enjoy a meal ..not be bombarded by political propaganda. It's your choice to alienate long time customers and it's my choice to no longer patronize your establishment. It was nice while it lasted.More

We celebrated our son's graduation, last night, at Benedetto's. Our server, Amanda, was amazing. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu: sources for meats/fish and when they arrived, ingredients, recommendations. The farm to table menu us out standing. My favorite was the Farm to Soup,...absolutely outstanding. We had a party of nine, most extensive travellers and very picky. Each was thrilled and raved about the flavor and quality of their meal. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making our special evening, even better.More

The atmosphere was great. Beautiful waiting lobby with a stone fire pit. Outdoor seating, and the servers were very attentive. Very generous portions of food. Mexican restaurants provide chips and salsa and most other restaurants provide rolls. This place provided both. We were actually getting...nervous that there was too much food before the actual meal! App.. stuffed mushrooms. I typically hate mushrooms, but very good. Lobster Ravioli very good. My companion got pork belly and was impressed. At the end, the server brought out a silver platter of desserts. We declined but I got a coffee and my companion got a cappuccino. When I checked the bill, they were not on it. I told the server and she said don't worry about it. VERY VERY positive experience will be back many times.More

My fam and I went here to celebrate my sister’s graduation. We were a bit hesitant because the area looked empty, but when we turned the corner of the restaurant, it was packed! We had to at least try an appetizer just by seeing how...full the place was. I had to turn in a college essay by midnight but it was more important to try this restaurant out. OH MY GOODNESS THE FOOD LEFT ME SPEECHLESS!! It went crescendo every time we tried something new. All the way from the wine to the dessert, it was AMAZIIIINGG! Thank you very much.More

(1st part of my review) Never ordering from Benedetto again. Called around 8:30pm placed an order for pick up.. I ordered a side of penne vodka pasta, calamari, a side Caesar salad and bread. They told us it would be 20 minutes to pick up....When we went to pick the food up at 9pm it still wasn't ready..... when we got home I opened up my TINY Cesar salad. It had about 5 pieces of lettuce in the box and to go along with it a freaking BUG on one of the leaves. Our calamari was DISGUSTING and soggy. It didn't even taste like calamari it tasted like Chinese food. Pasta was a good portion but didn't have that authentic penne vodka taste. We were sooooo dissatisfied with our food and I was disgusted with my salad and the wait time. Needless to say I will not return. AFTER this initial review and HONEST review was posted on Yelp... The owner BEN PUMO took into his own hands to reply to my Yelp review not apologizing to me for the inconvenience or for the horrible soggy calamari , bug on my leave salad ... but instead telling me “YOU SEEM LIKE A REAL PAIN IN THE BUTT.. We hope you don’t give us another chance” also telling me that anytime you order calamari through take out it will be soggy!!!!! Then why bother sell it? Stay away people. Don’t give this man your business he clearly does not need it!!!!!!More
