I met three friends for brunch. I was the first one there and got there very eary. I was given complimentary corn muffins. I had the salmon platter on a bagel w/cream cheese and tomato gazpacho soup which was delicious. The meals my friends had were excellent as well. We all enjoyed our food and had a great time.

We have been here for brunch and then decided to hold my son's wedding rehearsal dinner here. It was just terrific. The staff was great, the menu that they created for the event was perfect. Have been there for dinner as well...Steaks are amazing.

It was a nice place but small. Not enough servers on the floor which creates issues with the food delivery. Food is ok but nothing to brag about. Overall ok place for simple food. Alcohol is on the high price and beer selection is weird.

We spent our holidays in New York, we were travelling through Brooklyn on Christmas Day and needed somewhere for Christmas dinner. After a random search on Google we came across this restaurant and were impressed with the $80 all inclusive 3 - course dinner idea and thought we would give them a go. Initially when we arrived early at the... More

This past weekend a friend and I decided to try this place out for dinner and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent the filet mignon was melt in your mouth tender!! And the cookie dough egg rolls we had for dessert were absolutely sinful!! I will definitely be returning here.

My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary and we loved it! They have an indoor fancy and outdoor seating. We sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather. As the other reviews said the food was really good! We got the lobster salad and the trio appetizers and the Kobe steak & ribeye. We enjoyed the food and... More

We loved the courtyard setting of this restaurant which we visited as part of NYC Restaurant Week. We were greeted cordially, shown to a great table and looked after attentively throughout. Our meal was delicious - two of us opted to share the porterhouse which was a supplement to the Prix Fixe but well worth it. Dessert was sublime.

We ate here as part of a group of 30, and I was surprised at how good it was. Although the service was a little slow, the food was delicious. Very inventive.

While hanging in Brooklyn during Art week, I had the opportunity to check out restaurants. I went to Benchmark on a whim. The $1 oysters at the bar got my attention. Bartender, Joe was attentive and friendly and let me know oysters were available at the bar all the time. Updated classicss on the menu. The foie gar was excellant... More
