We had the pleasure of meeting the chef after the meal which was a great experience start to finish. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. If you're in the area and looking for a good meal this is a great option.

The setting looked pleasant and was close to home on a mid-week evening as we stepped out to celebrate a birthday. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews and called to reserve a table. In less than ten minutes, we knew we had made...a bad choice but it was too late on a school night to leave for another place. Compared to the other restaurants in the hotel which we have enjoyed dining at, this was a total letdown. Firstly, the choices were painfully limited much to the disappointment of our Italian-food loving tween. The service person had to keep checking with the kitchen about the items we enquired about, but most of them weren’t available anyway. Then the service fully slowed down for no apparent reason - no one came to enquire about refilling drinks or even for another serving of water. The one steward who came more than half an hour into our visit looked like he wanted to just breezily check the box about enquiring after the food. Here is a gem from him on seeing the couple of pizzas on the table that my kids had ordered, as we waited for the other dishes to arrive - ‘just pizzas for you this evening?’ We wondered if we were subjected to service by trainees who were still learning to talk not just to restaurant patrons, but even people in general. We still wanted to salvage our evening, so tried to chat up the staff to find out if there was some problem that they were grappling with that evening. No luck at all there, other than some mumbles about some ‘menu change’ or something. Another steward came to our table and we had no choice to let him know that we had already given our feedback. The service people did their jobs of arranging the plates/serving food/clearing them politely, but there was no one taking any interest or ownership of the service to our table at all.  The chef of the evening came towards the end to tell us that he had heard we had a problem with the food. We repeated ourselves, all over again to him - that the food served to us was good but we didn’t have any choice at all when we ordered. He apologized for the inconvenience, but that didn’t help the restaurant side of our celebratory dinner. It was a learning moment for our kids about how service at a so called good restaurant is not supposed to be like at all. We left without ordering dessert as we wanted to end the ordeal soon. Needless to say, the process of getting the check finally after the first one turned out to be a wrong one completed our Bene experience. Just wonder how many stars this restaurant service should receive!More

The Sheraton at Brigade Towers at the end of Cunningham Road and Mt Carmel College is one of the best European Restaurants in Bangalore. Located on the 10th floor offers a wonderful view of Bangalore. The restaurant is large and ideal for business lunch meetings....Had the pork belly rib. Was absolutely amazing.More

I had a wonderful time at the cubbon pavilion and we have enjoyed very well. I really loved all the deserts and I specially enjoyed khao suey soup. Special thanks to Papa rao. He attended us very well and fullfilled our time well.

My fiancee and I went to Bene a few weeks ago and had a wonderful experience. Since neither one of us was particularly hungry we ordered a few small dishes. The service was impeccable! I tried a couple of wines (tasting portions) before settling in...with my eventual choice and the staff couldn't have been more gracious in assisting me with my final selection. I REALLY wanted to try the risotto special, since, in my humble opinion, Risotto and Pasta preparations are a key litmus test for a chef, but ran out of appetite. Upon my inquiry regarding the sourcing of Pancetta, the chef came to speak with us and alas, the Pancetta is imported!! Will definitely go back to try a few more dishes. In the meantime, I will continue to prep my Carbonara with bacon while the quest of the holy grail of real Pancetta continues!More

What would I have done in Bangalore without this restaurant. If you like italian food, then this is the place to go. You will not regret whatever you order. I tried pizzas, gnocci and risotto. Everything was just like it should be. This chef knows...what he is doing. Next to the fantastic kitchen you can look forward to very nice and polite waiters. You go into this restaurant and you enter in Bangalore in a different world.More

I think if you want to eat here, stick to the pizza, everything else is small portions with very big prices. The food we got was tastey, but cold. Not worth the 6600 rupies we paid. Basically we learned not to trust the hotel staff...for recommendations during this trip - they only recommend Sheraton restruants and bars - all of which we tried were awful.More

This was our first visit to this Restaurant. We found it to be an amazing place to dine in. We were Vegetarians and the Menu offered a wide range of choices. What made the place to stand out was the quality of service. The staff...were more than willing to come up with custom dishes to suit individual taste. The starters and the dessert were memorable. So was the service from the bar ; we could collect tips too from the bar tender for use at home :) All in all, a Restaurant I would recommend to any one who wants spend a good evening in the City..More
