We were in NY for Christmas and decided to book the 3 course Christmas dinner here. It was absolutely fantastic!! I went for the rack of lamb and it was delicious. We were so full we had to take our desserts with us!

RESTAURANT'S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2016 via mobile

This is by far my favorite steakhouse, let alone my favorite in NYC. I try to come here whenever I am in town. It has a great atmosphere, wonderful staff and amazing food. I typically get the ribeye and it is juicy and delectable. My wife had the filet and it was very good as well. Highly recommended!! More

I love coming in to NY and I make Benjamins a priority for dinner. Johnny does a fantastic job of making us feel like family. The steaks are superb and we just tried the lamb chops. They were the best I ever had.

This steakhouse was recommended by a friend. After a top notch experience, I too have to give this restaurant a solid rating. Great selection of wines that cross all price points. The steaks were done to perfection. Oddly enough my wife ordered Chilean Sea Bass and was equally impressed.

Great restaurant. We had a steak for three with side dishes. And we couldn't even finish everything. The lobster soup was amazing. Also wine and beer. A little bit expensive but this is what you can expect in NYC. Great service.

With all of the great nyc steakhouses, Benjamin is slightly better than average. The service was ok but the waiter forgot to bring our bacon but at least he didn't charge us for it. My caesar salad was good and the dressing on my friends face tells me that his wedge was good too. The big negative was the small... More

My business steakhouse 1x month around the corner from my office. No reason to walk further. Flawless service; very good lunch menu; greeted like you're a celebrity; reservation is always honored; seating away from others when available; prefer downstairs to upstairs looking forward to trying the new premium restaurant on 40th.

My wife and I returned to The Benjamin on a cold windy day in January. We were greeted warmly. Our waiter, Ricky, not only remembered us - he remembered which wines I had ordered before, and how my wife likes her steak cooked! It was like coming to the house of an old friend. We started with the fried calamari,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
