I receive emails monthly that I signed up for on their website & typically go at least once a month for dinner. Service has always been prompt when I've been for dinner & lunch.....never been dissatisfied with the food quality. Recently had my birthday brunch for 12 people there-they set up the bar area as a brunch buffet on Sundays with breakfast & lunch selections-it's just under $20 per person with a complimentary glass of champagne. Main complaint was there is always a 10% off brunch coupon emailed to me on the 1st of every month-as of this month, I've still to receive one. Would have liked to use it this past Sunday the 3rd when I spent $300 on brunch-gave the waitress a February dated one & advised I hadn't received the March one that I always receive the 1st day of the month-she went to the manager, came back , & told me I couldn't use the February one. Little annoyed at that as when I got home & checked my previous emails from Bensi-throughout the entire last year I received their monthly coupon email mostly on the 1st of every month with just a couple months receiving it on the 7th. Since we had a party of 12 for brunch, they automatically added 18% tip onto the bill yet weren't very attentive on refilling our drinks our entire stay. The bus boy did clean our plates off quite frequently. We were sure not rushed & allowed us plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely brunch but the service at brunch was definately NOT as attentive as it usually is it at lunch/dinner-not sure if that's due to the fact we were a large party or not. Food was good as usual-brunch was complete with chocolate fountain! It was many family members first experience there & they were pleased!

Had been here for a repast a few years ago and remembered everyone liked it. Three of us finally returned last week and it was unanimous, we won't be back. The bread was good. Otherwise, overpriced and unimpressive food. We had calamari app which tasted like it was from frozen, two eggplant dishes that were also overly fried and seemed to just have slices of mozzarella melted on top. The third in our party had a veal dish which was again overly fried and i am told was mediocre at best. what a disappointment. I would suggest the back dining room of any pizza parlor would have been a better choice. Too bad.

As for service, our waitress was excellent. The busboy, however, was way too quick to grab plates before everyone in our party was finished. Made it a very rushed dinner. Again, too bad. We went with hopes of finding a good neighborhood restaurant. Bensi is not it for us.
