Best Steak NYC

Came here as a recommendation from a good friend of mine, now I can't stop thinking about! I ordered the shrimp cocktail to start, delicious with an amazing cocktail sauce! As an entree I had the Prime Rib, man was it good! Cooked to perfection with au jus on the side to dip my french fries in, MmMmMm!!! For dessert, key lime pie, one of the best I've ever tasted! As for our waiter, he was great too! Very polite, ... view more

Nondescript but wasn't terrible

Came here testing out the Restaurant Week menu. We nearly walked passed it, that's how low-key the outside was. It was a similar scene in doors--nondescript.\r \r I ordered the soup of the day (lentils), English cut prime rib with mashed potatoes and ice cream (vanilla). My friend ordered the Caesar salad, sliced filet mignon with portobello mushrooms and mashed potatoes and the cheesecake.\r \r An odd thing w... view more

Nothing Special Less Than Average!

My wife and I have been wanting to try Ben Benson's for some time now. So we decided to take a ride into the city once and for all. We started with the caesar salad which was very leafy (Bright Green Ends of the Romaine Lettuce usually discarded by most chefs) and hardly any dressing on it with bagged croutons costing $12.95. Then we had the shrimp cocktail which seemed to have been previously frozen and it wasn't... view more

They were tasty....

I love what I got when I came here with a friend of mine Nicholas. He had brought me here on a late Friday night and we had always wanted to talk to each other but we would never make a move. So last weekend he finally did and we came out and had a fun night and the Service here was grand and the night just got better.

5-star prices, 1-star food

Apparently, I had read the wrong reviews before deciding to have dinner at this particular restaurant. Even had one friend tell me they liked it. I can honestly state, without equivocation, or fear of contradiction, it was the worst meal I've ever had in a supposedly upscale Manhattan restaurant in my life.\r \r The martini and the bread and butter before dinner were the high points of the meal. I ordered my steak,... view more

Wonderful Experience!!!!!

Very first time there...We arrived early...Waited outside and met Matt...He was one of the waiters...He came over to talk to us while we waited and before you knew it we were sitting inside...He was so pleasant we asked if Matt could be our waiter and was seated in his area... Then Ben walked in...We called him ""Mr. Benson"" and he said call me ""Ben""...Had good conversation with him and made us feel at home...\r ... view more

Terrible experience

This was such a disappointing experience. I was visiting my daughter(from Seattle.) Absolutely the most RUDE server I have ever met! We mentioned this to another server. He was replaced by someone els who was very perfunctory and rushed. The food was terrible: cold steak ,burnt on outside and on a COLD plate. Blah salad...bagged croutons. Nothing special or even acceptable about the entire experience. Not cr... view more

Where's The Beef?

The hype doesn't match the beef. Appetizers and salad were good, but my bone-in sirloin and my wife's skirt steak where as tough as a longshoreman.\r \r Lots better steaks in NYC. Over priced for the quality.
