The meal started off in the right direction. Delicious bread. We had the charcuterie board. Very good. The main course was terrible. I had the duck breast and my daughter had the steak. The steak was sent back. Ordered rare and received well done. Second time no flavor at all. The duck breast was not tender. Very unappealing. Would never... More

Benoit has long tradition of very good French food and atmosphere. It recently closed for major renovation and has reopened with just as much elegance and a wonderful menu. The food is great. The crab meat appetizer is amazing, the hanger steak and sauce is wonderful. The sorbets are as good as sorbet gets. I liked the old decor, but... More

We were a group of 6. 5 appetizers came out w.the foie Gras appetizer missing. Our server said "Sorry. I was concentrating on reducing the boeuf tartare from a main course to an appetizer." It took 10 minutes for the foie gras slice to appear. One of us (French speaking) ordered the foie de veau knowing it was liver. Another... More

I had the good fortune of dining at the old Benoit in Paris before Alain Ducasse and it was memorable. The most simple items were scrumptious from the foie gras to the roasted chicken. The service was correct -- not overwhelming like a haute cuisine restaurant but appropriate for a bistr0. Benoit NYC is no comparison. First, when I arrived... More

A local bistro / brasserie type place in mid town, I have eaten here for years and never had a bad meal; but I have never blow me away here either. Whether it is a late night snack, an easy dinner with family or friends or a business dinner, there is something for everyone here (steak, chicken, seafood, good wines,... More

Rest assured the new whitewash on the walls never reached the kitchen. The new artichoke plate for the mix and match starters is a welcome addition. The pig trotters with tarter sauce remain at the top of their game. My partner had the steak tartare and I went with duck and beetroot. The beetroots were not only succulent and sweet... More

This was one of the worst restaurants we have ever been to..We have traveled many places in France and gone to many French Restaurants in the states. In fact we sometimes ate at Le Cote Basque. From start to finish this was a bad experience. We both ordered the Cousselet. There was so much fat you could not find the... More

I had a very pleasant dinner with a few assorted starters and a divine filet mignon, but the highlight was surely the chocolate soufflė which was out of this world. Perfect.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
