“EXCEPTIONALLY FINE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

Had a wonderful lunch meal here today. Fresh panko crusted cod done perfectly, with spring mix/chopped salad, roasted red potatoes and an incredibly good crab sauce on the side. Like any great meal, there were layers of flavor and the ingredients were obviously fresh, well prepared and innovative. Lots of other great sounding choices as well. Our first visit, but will definitely be back. Excellent service, comfortably elegant decor, and reasonable prices. A real find!

“Fresh and Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

We ordered on the Mexican side at Benis -- quesadilla and taco salad. Both dishes were very good and fresh. The decor is neat, service is prompt and polite, and the prices are quite reasonable. We ate in the dining area and the bar was much busier. Parking can be a little challenging during the busy times. We will return to sample more of the menu.

“Nice menu variety with a bistro flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This restaurant in its new life as Beni's has borrowed much from its predecessor, which was the old Theo's Restaurant. On our most recent visit, we ordered on the light side, but our selections both exceeded expectations. My wife ordered the special appetizer salad with chèvre, which came as a huge portion of greens with a generous slab of goat cheese, while I chose the grilled salmon special served with aioli and grilled zucchini. Carrying the Theo's tradition forward, the entree was nicely garnished with ribbons of fresh peeled scallion and carrot as well as spritzes of parsley and paprika. A pair of side dishes was also included with the salmon, so there was no shortage of food for the $21 being charged. (The chèvre was $10.) All in all, very good food presented with artistic touches pleasing to the eye and palette that won't break the bank!

“they made a special order for me!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

I have been to Beni's three times now and had very good food and service every time. I love their Sole Francaise that they have on their lunch menu. When we went there for dinner on Friday night, I noticed it wasn't on there supper menu, only Chicken Francaise was. I asked if they could make me the Sole Francaise, and they did!! I really think they should consider adding it to there supper menu. Anyway, as the other two times, the service and food were very good, and it was a busy Friday night too!! The staff their obviously has there act together. Would definitely recommend it. I also attended a small function there once too, so consider it a good place for those too.
