September 2016 the concierge at tbe Grand Hyatt recommended Benjamins Steakhouse. That first visit was all it took to sell me. I am not a steak lover but when they say steak fir 2 it is more like steak for 4. I had my sister her husband and my dad. They were extremely impressed and delighted. When I was there... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 November 2016 via mobile

This is by far my favorite steakhouse, let alone my favorite in NYC. I try to come here whenever I am in town. It has a great atmosphere, wonderful staff and amazing food. I typically get the ribeye and it is juicy and delectable. My wife had the filet and it was very good as well. Highly recommended!! More

This isn't just a steakhouse. If the global brotherhood of meat eaters existed and were to open a place, it would look, taste and smell like Benjamin's. I've been returning here for almost 10 yrs and they still keep me from turning vegetarian. New York at its very best.

Let's talk about the food, because that is what you go to a restaurant for! Loved the food at this place. Still dreaming of my rib eye and spinach! Awesome! The physical space? Large. Very, very, very noisey. Kind of like eating in the middle of Central Station during rush hour. Food gets a 5. Overall a 4 because of... More

Steaks though was superb, totally delightful. The portion was enormous to the British, I couldn't finished my but managed the salad and asparagus. We... More

This was recommended by the concierge in our hotel. I had the lobster bisque and my husband had the crab cakes which were both fine. I had the rack of lamb, ordered medium rare, which came dry and overcooked. My husband had a fillet mignon , medium, which was fine. There are no sauces offered such as bearnaise which would...

Wine by the glass, excellent. Filet, superb, but even my daughter's salmon was "the best salmon" she ever had. Service was impeccable and the atmosphere was very cool. I will go there again, when I can afford it.

This is the third time we have been here and wish we lived closer so we were able to visit more often. While it is pricey, it is hands down worth it. The service is top notch, the steaks are to die for and the atmosphere is wonderful. Save room for dessert, they have some delicious options!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
