It was our first trip to this restaurant and the staff would not serve us brunch cocktails, prior to noon, citing NY's Blue Laws. This would have been just fine if the staff was not already serving alcohol to the restaurant regulars. Then the owner...More

We've eaten many dinners at Benchmark and consider it one of the best restaurants in the Slope. But recently their menu has changed--the duck, the halibut, the pork chop entrees have fallen off the menu. I always wondered why there was no chicken entree--they now...More

Awesome place. Small cosy with fantastic good. Went for the Winter Restaurant Week. The scallop and beef totally blow me away. Wait staff were efficient and knowledgable.

The service was terrible. Food took so long to come out. The meats were all undercooked and poorly seasoned. Scallops were good, but that's about it. This place seriously needs a food and service upgrade.

I have eaten here several times because it is a very pretty steakhouse. The food is very inconsistent for this price point. The ribeye is sometimes delicious but on my last two visits very salty. I have had gritty oysters, and do not understand why...More

Gene, this is a wonderful restaurant. Not only is the staff very friendly, but the food is to die for! They have a playlist of songs from the mid to late 60's, early 70's. If your party is less than 12 people, they don't... More
