I've been going to Bennies for over a year now and this review is long overdue. This is by far the best Lebanese food in the area. Everything is fresh and made to order and I've yet to find anything bad on the menu. I usually get the shrimp with the rice and spinach but I've had the tuna, a... More

Sometimes I'm just in the mood for Bennies, and no place else will do. I go immediately to the display case before I'm even seated to decide what I will have on my place: you can choose three of the side dishes for a great meal for $13. For an extra $3 you can add a chicken, lamb or kafta... More

Nice Saturday lunch at Bennies. Cozy place, good food, reasonable prices. The staff was extremely kind and helpful and accommodated all our extra strange vegan dietary needs (no eggs, no east, food has to be fried separately, etc.) New waitress passed the test with A++. We ordered Hummus, Falafel, Fries, Stuffed Grape Leaves, Pellegrino (still do not understand how the... More

Small restaurant with wonderful middle eastern food and very reasonably priced. Staff works hard to be courteous, explain menu and accommodate any other requests. Also this is a BYOB.

Great Middle Eastern meals. The owner/chef is creative and knows how to perfectly spice and pair foods. Broad selection so even the less adventurous diners can find a delicious option. Vegetable Lasagna, Barley dishes, Golden Beet Kale Salad, Pistachio Chicken Wrap, Homemade Yogurt, and the daily Chicken options (turmeric chicken, avocado chicken, etc) are not to be missed. All the... More

Food is consistently good and service is warm and friendly. Seating is a bit tight, but families/groups are accommodated. The salads, Mediterranean dishes and pizza are all delicious, as are the spiced beverages.

And I am writing this because I feel SO humiliated.... I asked the waitress how much was a side dish. BIt costed $2 each. So... More

We have been to Bennies a few times and love it each time. It is a small place so I would recommend reservations. Food was delicious and service was excellent.

After a long day at the Museum of Natural History, we decided to leave the city without dinner and head closer to home. We were craving some type of middle easter cuisine. Tripadvisor led us here. There were three of us and we all had the platter which is one meat and 3 sides. All of us had the lamb... More
