Cocktail menus was wonderful. Strong bistro food, a tad over-priced, but well worth the trip. Will be back.

Service was very good from the bartender to our waiter to our Venezuelan server who was very amicable. My Buckwheat crepe was a little dry but contents good. I think it would be better on a regular crepe. It was our first visit but probably not our last

I have been to Benoit many times, but have never experienced such poor service. The staff were all quite nice, but mix-ups occurred and the service was unusually slow. I will certainly return to Benoit since it is an exceptional place, yet I'm puzzled by the service on this one occasion.

Food is outstanding. Imaginative pairing of flavors with beautiful presentation. A bit expensive for the food and wine but you truly get what you paid for. Loved it so much that I'm taking a friend there for a birthday celebration.
Also great location if going to Carnegie Hall.

During a recent visit, we enjoyed the tarte flambee, roast chicken, quennelles de brochet, cassoulet, roast duck, and baba with Armagnac. The chef made a delicious chocolate hazelnut praline birthday cake for our celebration. The service was impeccable as always. Benoit is one of the true gems among French restaurants in New York City.

The food and service during the meal were amazing.
The appetizers were amazing but a single shrimp as one of the selections seems parsimonious.
However we had to wait for our table to be ready and we were disappointed with the the location of the table despite being returning customers.
At the end of the meal we waited for quite a while to get some a server's attention for our check.
We were not in a rush but we sat with empty coffee cups and desert plates as servers kept rushing past our table.
The cost of the meal is high but the food is delicious but more attention to details would seem appropriate at this price point.
