Pleasant, high-ceiling dining room, efficient service, limited menu options, but you go there for steak. The ribeye was excellent - definitely worth the expectations. The sides (onion rings, potatoes) were good, but not really top quality. Draft beer selection very limited, too. Expensive, but it is a fine steakhouse in NYC.

We celebrated my wife's birthday here last month. We are in our 60s, have traveled a lot, and have to say we have never had a finer dining experience. We were promptly seated, even as walkups. The staff was friendly, skilled and worked great as a team. We really loved their sense of humor. The food was prepared exactly to order, was impeccably delicious, and was served promptly and elegantly. The overall atmosphere was tastefully energetic and we felt like we were dining among patrons that knew exactly what they had discovered. The price was high, but we both felt it was commensurate with the experience.

Food was good. We ordered a steak for two and a soup and salad. Everything was done just right. The beef was really medium rare and tender. I take one star out coz (1) the steak came swimming in grease which even though it might be the style, it made the meal really heavy, and (2) perhaps because of the wooden floor, the dining room was very noisy.

But overall the experience was good and I think reasonably priced, so I hope to return soon.

Thank YauBaby

This has become one of our favorites! The steak is phenomenal! It's romantic and offers a rich setting that allows you to sink into an hour away from the noise of life. Suggest the "steak for two!" The juices make this one of the best in New York City! But make your reservation, it's worth the phone call to plan ahead. Bring your visa ... it's wonderful, but in this case "you truly do pay for what you get!"

We went to Benjamins after a recommendation from our concierge. And we where not disappointed, we all ordered the steak, and it was cooked to perfection. And must say the service was also excellent.
