    Bone-in Ribeye!

    The bone in ribeye was awesome. It was seasoned well and cooked to perfection. I love the ambiance. It is a PERFECT date place.

    Great Find Tucked Away in the Slope

    Ate dinner there last night for the first time. What a wonderful experience! The ambiance is great, the service outstanding. We had the heirloom tomato salad and the seasonal greens with roasted strawberries and goat cheese . Both were excellent. The filet mignon and rib eye steaks were well seasonsed and cooked to perfection! They were out of the brussels sprouts so we ordered the spatzel instead. It was different and quite tasty. The chef''s culinary attributes shine through. The only suggestion that I would make is to have a side for dieters such as a baked potato or sweet potato (without cheese) and possibly a dish or two without cheese for those that might be allergic or don't eat cheese. Dessert was just a smidge disappointing, we had the strawberry shortcake. The bottom of the shortcake was burnt and left a bitter taste, it should not have been plated. When brought to the attention of the waiter it was immediately addressed and corrected. This resturant is like finding a hidden gem!! Can't wait to go back.

    Gem on 2nd

    Went for brunch with a few friends, and had fantastic food in a chilled out atmosphere. Food was extremely fresh and delightful- and service very friendly. Definitely a new favorite spot in the slope.

    Mmmmmm Goood

    The lamb leaves a lasting taste on your tongue. The steak is great as well with their special sauce. The food may not seems like a lot but it is filling and leaves you wanting more next time.

    Try it!

    Ate here on a Thursday night in the summer with my dad. The food quality was great, and the level of service was amazing. The salads were really nice and fresh. We each got the cullote steak because we wanted something not-too-big (server said it's about 7 oz). But they have big steaks, too, if that's what you're in the mood for. Bottom line, try it.

    Awesome Steak!

    I love steak. I love steakhouses. I always order a bone-in ribeye and they usually cost me upwards of $45. At Benchmark, I ordered a $30, 24oz Bone-in Ribeye - medium rare. My steak was charred on the outside, perfectly seasoned and cooked just the way I ordered it. My steak was right up there with my - old - favorite steakhouse. Our favorite side dish: brussels sprouts with bacon and Indian spices. Yummy. The service wasn't up to par with the fancy steakhouses, but keep in mind that the bill will be $50-$100 cheaper. That being said, our server was lovely. Benchmark is my new favorite steakhouse because, well, I can afford to eat there, the atmosphere is romantic and the steak is fabulous!
