I love trying the steakhouses in NYC & I was NOT disappointed in this one! I got the ribeye steak and it was marvelous! Cooked to perfection, tender and very juicy. Their onion rings were not quite as good as Wolfgang's since they weren't as crispy but they were very good. The service was outstanding with our main waiter being... 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

Benjamin Steakhouse advertises itself as a 'traditional New York steakhouse' and was full on a busy Sunday evening when we were there as a party of 8, having booked beforehand. We found the atmosphere to be rather dull and stuffy and could well be unchanged in decor from the 1930's! All the waiters were men but were welcoming and friendly.... More

My husband and I were just passing by, looking for a place to eat, when we saw the sign. It was 2 o´clock in the afternoon, and the place was almost empty, we were the fourth and last table for lunch.

My grandson wanted steak and heading to an old favorite Le Steak was impossible. Someone recommended Benjamin and we could easily walk there from The Empire State Building. The lunch menu was affordable and had a lot of choices. We had raw oysters, lobster bisque, rib eye, filet minion, grilled tuna, and believe it or not, grilled canadian bacon which... More

Nice place for a steak! This place is very busy with very friendly and efficient service! It's not cheap but for being in NY and the quality not bad. This place has been here for a long time and probably could need a refurbishment but the atmosphere is great.

The food was out of this world and the service is second to none. I would recommend sharing ie: steak for two/three...as they are huge and so filling. A must for a one-off expensive treat on your hols.

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.
