Went on recommendation from our hotel and ordered the porterhouse for 2, we both thought it was the best steak experience we'd ever had. We couldn't fault anything on it. It was perfectly seasoned and perfectly Cooked and the wine they choose was perfect too. We nearly went back the next night!

Exactly what I expected from an established New York Steakhouse! Great service, delicious steaks, ambiance was perfect... Famous people seated discreetly in the back! It was a BIG night for our group from Minneapolis!

The bacon is a must. The sirloin steak was cooked perfectly charred on the outside medium rare on the inside. I am never let down when eating here. The cheese cake was decent but not as good as del friscos, but that could be my personal taste.

Benjamin's offers very high qualitative steak, always cooked on point in a typical steakhouse atmosphere, but on a high level. The waiters are friendly and professional and also dishes beside steaks are good.

Upscale restaurant with perfect service. A little bit dark, but that's not to camouflage bad food !! The steak was cooked to perfection and the side dishes were very tasteful. An immense and very diversified wine list.

Our experience at the Benjamin last year warranted a return visit this year. Post returning from our trip last year I had emailed the manager, Nick, to thank him for an excellent dining experience. As we walked into the restaurant this year, he remembered us. That was a nice touch. He seated us an introduced our waiter who was outstanding... More

I rarely rate something as excellent but this really was. I had the filet mignon which as fantastic and cooked to a perfect medium well. Even the mashed potatoes were great! Don't pass up on dessert: There tiramisu was amazing. Service was also great.

Benjamin has all the ingredients that make you travel back to the steak house tradition. No fancy or modern furniture or lighting, but on the contrary the place that your grandparents used to come and be delighted by a real steak with the proper crust in both sides and tender inside melting deliciously at every bite. Classical side dishes around... More

The strength and weakness of an American steak house, in my view, is that there are really no surprises. You know what you're looking for, and in a good one, that's what you get. This is true of the Benjamin, just one block south of Grand Central Station. The French onion soup was delicious; not as sweet as some can... 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.
