Great place, the food is just fantastic. Especially love the sunday night pasta special! Place is a little too small, but it's worth it for the amazing food and great service.

Went to Benjamin's for the first time tonight and have to say it was GREAT. I had the steak with potato and veg and it was all around great. Thanks Benjamin's! You will definitely be seeing me again.

The Positives: Friendly waiter, tasty bread, good mashed potatoes and dessert. The Negatives: The Hostess, wine prices, crab cakes, and tuna steak.

We really enjoy the atmosphere, cause it's romantic, cozy and quaint. The food is out of this world and the prices are just right. A great way to have a relaxing and wonderful night out.

My wife likes this place, even if you don't make their 5-7 early bird special ($12 or $15), their still-reasonably priced gargantuan a la carte entrees would more than make up for it (if you don't want to overstuff, I would actually recommend just going for their entree since with soup and desert, there is just too much food). Cuisine is new york american. The waitstaff and maitre 'd do always seem stressed out because the place gets so crushed during their special hours, so anon may have a point, but they have always been very gracious to us though you can tell they are trying their best not to lose their temper. Even if we do have to wait an hour sometimes, your patience will be more than rewarded.

As most of the above reviews will tell you, Benjamin's is a neighborhood treasure. The food is made with the freshest ingredients and is outstanding considering it's basically a bar. But what stands out most is the friendly service. I have never once been treated badly there, and I'm not a regular. The host is charming and the waiters warm and helpful. Don't pay any attention to "Anonymous", as he/she is obviously a grump!

Amazing food, amazing value and great service. Servers always have a smile regardless if they are dealing with some jerks next to you; very atypical new york. They actually try to make you feel comfortable. Food is always done spectacularly, and again the price is the best in manhattan. Four Stars!!
