“Restaurant Week Offer not worth it”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We came to take the restaurant week dinner offer because last year we enjoyed some really good steaks. Unfortunately it was crowded, loud, and fast-food-service: the soup and steak were okay and the dessert very very sweet, and suddenly there's the bill on the table while you're still eating the dessert so that after one hour the table is ready for the next guests. 115 dollar for 2 persons for some average steakhouse dinner (inkl. 15% tip on the bill and 2 beer) for a busy and hectic one-hour-service (they even don't ask you if you'd like to have another drink) is just too expensive and not a really great offer/deal. Waiters are nice but compared to central europe / austria not worth the 15% gratuity.

“Good food, slightly expensive”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Staff at our hotel recommended Ben and Jacks to us on our second night in NYC. The restaurant was busy, but the staff were still very friendly and attentive. At first glance the menu did appear to be expensive, but the huge sizes of the meat and sides that soon appeared on our table somewhat explained the price. Everything was cooked to perfection, the burger succulent and the steaks amazingly tender. The New York cheesecake for dessert also had to be one of the best we had during our time in New York.

“Table for 8”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

This place was recommended by our hotel. We were given a little room to ourselves, & had good service. As the portions were large, myself & a friend shared a filet mignon, pepper sauce & baked potato, which was more than ample for us both. As it is a little expensive this worked well as would have been food wasted if we had 1 each.

“Excellent service, delicious meal”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We felt like royalty - the waitstaff paid us so much attention. The food was excellent and with a family of men, we knew the steaks were good. Come hungry - large portions.
