I don't eat steak (or meat), but I'm a regular at the Benjamin because of the bar scene. G. the bartender is one of the best in Manhattan - he mixes a perfect cocktail and is an even better host, always treating you like you're the most important customer.

I have been to Benjamin's many times, twice last week. My last experience was not great. We had a table for 15 people and they gave us one with a pillar in the middle, requiring 4 people to sit on the other side of the pillar. The porter houses ordered were much smaller than usual and so were the sides.... More

Whenever I come to NYC (too much lately), I make a point of eating steak. This time it was Benjamin. Wonderful!! Just how a New York steakhouse should be. Easily competing with Peter Luger ( I understand the owner was the chef in Peter Luger).

We had 15 or so people at a celebration. The service was excellent and the perfect amount of attentive vs. not disrupting. The chilled seafood platter was spot on and the steaks were also very good too. (I am from the Midwest so I think I get better steak locally).

드레스코드를 갖춘 뉴요커들의 캐쥬얼한 스테이크 레스토랑. 고풍스러운 분위기와 인테리어이지만 태이블간 간격이 좁고 회식?분위기라 다소 시끄러움. 서빙하는 사람들도ㅠ매우 유쾌함. Salad / Steak for two/ Half bottle of Red Wine /tip 총 194$ 드라이에이징 스테이크를 잘 못먹어봐서 그런지 대박 이런맛은 아니었고 고기 양은 정말 보장함. Steak for two 주문하면 정말 고기만 나옴 ㅋㅋㅋ 여기 온 뉴요커들은 정말 여기 사랑하는듯 보이지만 개인적으로는 이정도가격에... More

One of the best steaks I ever had. Entire meal was excellent. Was with party of 5 and no complaints at all. Pecan pie was to die for. Carrot cake and cheese cake was also great. The staff was excellent. Very good wine list as well. There is a reason why this is one of the City's best steak houses

My partner and I had an amazing steak here last summer :) You could cut the steak with a spoon. Perfectly seasoned and still talked about to this day. When we return to NY we will be back!

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.
