Fantastic place to have a business/casual meal. The service is excellent as well as the food. I had the lunch special, consisting of the crab cake and petite sirloin and mixed berries for desert. Z.

We had an amazing experience as always! One of our very favorite restaurants in the city. Super fresh, friendly and professional. Grant was a delight, I recommend everyone to be seated in his section. He was so knowledgeable, recommended the best dishes/meats/wine and of course dessert!

My wife and I have dined at Benjamin's once before and that dinner was as enjoyable as this. We live six hours away so the opportunity to dine at Benjamin's does not come along often. As for cost, if you are concerned about the cost, you are dining in the wrong place. It really is an overall experience, not just a dinner.

Another productive and prosperous business meeting at Benjamin Prime. This place always delivers good energy, amazing food and impeccable service. My Clients always leave impressed and that certainly helps with closing the deal. I’ve been a fan since the day they opened. I would recommend this place to anyone taking their Clients out for a business meal.

Visited Benjamin’s Steakhouse in the past and thought it was amazing! This “Prime” location was a first. It was a polite and professional checkin along with quick seating. Upon being seated we were asked on our preference of water and then provided with a drink menu. We ordered a Martini, two glasses of wine, and a cocktail. One glass of moscato came out in a champagne flute, and the cocktail came out in what appeared to be a faux crystal standard tall glass as opposed to short cocktail glass. (It May seem like I’m splitting hairs but if you go to Mastros at the same price, they will pay attention to the detail). We all ordered the Filet Mignon along with 3 sides of: Creamless Creamed Spinach (Meh), Brussels Sprouts (AMAZING), and Lobster MAC n Cheese (it was ok). The steaks came out properly cooked but I have never been so UNDERWHELMED in my life. Mine was bland, no real taste, and I think a tell tale sign of this was that they had steak sauce on the table prior to arriving. We should have run as that should never be needed. For a $58 steak we should be drooling but not only did I only eat half, but everyone else at my table only finished a portion. That’s FAR from the standard at an upscale steakhouse. In the end they did remember that I was celebrating an anniversary for my friends anniversary and they did bring out a complimentary dessert for them which was nice, but again this is a standard when comparing it to Mastros! Overall, I will not head back to this steakhouse; when you spend $600 for a party of 4 you expect to be blown away. Although the service was decent and they were extremely nice I can’t see this exact establishment remaining with the quality of food and lack of drink/glass knowledge. Lastly, for a steakhouse you expect prime cuts of meat as an option: No Japanese Wagyu, rather Americans wagyu (what?!). It was quite limited and a significant attempt to copy Mastros or something similar. We didn’t complain and ultimately accepted the fate of dinner

Dined with a group of 9 for a business dinner. From the moment we arrived until last drinks we were treated with excellent service and food. All except one person ordered the porterhouse steak and we were all pleased with the quality of beef and the excellent preparation on the cook. Our server Al was always available for anything we needed. And his service was impeccable. We ordered two bottles of wine and cocktails and the manager sent complimentary limoncello and port to our table. I will definitely be back to this restaurant again. Food and excellent service mean everything.

I had never been to NYC before, so we made a reservation here on a whim. We wanted to celebrate both my first time in the city and Valentines Day. It was absolutely incredible. The meal and wine were incredible and our server, Grant, did a phenomenal job. We really enjoyed our visit and look forward to the next one.

Me and wife went for Valentine’s date. We are free to choose the seat near the wall which is good. The service is okay but not as expected extremely outstanding as 1st, waiter has to be asked to pour the water (other restaurant waiter will continue monitor the water level) 2nd, they confuse the ‘cooked’ level for the order — we order one NY strip for medium well but come out with medium and one surf and turf the steak come out with medium well instead of medium we ordered. But we are fine. 3rd, we saw other tables have the real candle but ours are electric one and in the end there is no battery but it has not been changed yet.

The appetizers are great. The sides dishes are also great. The chef/waiter has asked us few times during the meal whether the food is great which is appreciated. Overall it’s a nice steak dinner for Valentine’s date.

We went for lunch for the restaurant week and ordered steak. But the steak was really salty and overcooked, it was really difficult to even cut the steak. The starter bread and the lobster bisque was good but the main course was horrible.
