"We had a dinner here during the restaurant week and were not disappointed. The food was delicious - escargot for starters and cod as the main dish. While mashed potatoes (side) looked a bit "tired" and lumpy, the taste was good and the fish was great. I cannot remember the name of the desert - looked like two profitroles with amazing passion fruit cream - but it was really good - one of the best I had in a while. Perfect potions. And the service is great."

"I love the Gaalic touches:the Benoit napkin rings, the gougere, the butterpat cover
with the B, the bread basket made from a napkin. The food is delicious!
My friend and I went Restauant Week and we both ordered the veal stew
as one rarely sees it on a menu any more...excellent...and the accompanying
rice was marvelous too. I have had their Frites on previous visits...outstanding!

"Benoit is a great French high end bistrot in all the best senses of the ambiance of such a bygone-
seeming dining experience. Loved the food, and the two-tiered classic service of the main dish, and then the sauce for it, in the cute little saucepan. This kind of unfussy food, basic, straightforward, with the only really important criterion for dinner being met: it is delicious.

"Once we were able to flag down a waiter and order the food took forever to arrive. It was well prepared.
Halfway through the meal a third person joined the table for two next to us. She had bathed in perfume and was sitting so close that I had to stop eating. Very disappointing!

"Food took too long to arrive it was really good but not good if one wanted to get a quick lunch better for those that are not in a hurry. Also the waiter did forget about us several times but would try again maybe when it is less busy and when I'm not in so much of in a hurry"

"The fact that the salad with black truffles was not at all up to standards (more about this later), does not take away from my high opinion of Benoit Restaurant and Bar. My husband loved the hanger steak and frites. I loved the special I had which was Hake. The service was warm and attentive and neither rushed nor slow. We were seated at a wonderful table and overall,enjoyed our meal. Now here comes the issue. First off, a pet peeve I have with ALL restaurants. Inevitably, the server will approach and ask if everything is okay. I always say "everything is wonderful" because I've never had a serious issue with anything. But when I tasted the black shaved truffle on the 22.00 salad, it tasted of nothing. Nothing. As if it had gone stale or was shaved that morning and lost all its flavor. I stressed to the server that someone should speak to the chef because the truffles were tasteless and had not even a whiff of fragrance. At which point she told me there was no truffle oil on it! Well, yes, I know that. But I have tasted black truffle - real black truffle shavings - and they have a taste. These have none. In fact, I did not consume any of the black truffle shavings but one. No point. You would think the restaurant would have checked what I was complaining about. Or that someone would have offered a complimentary coffee. Something! But no, nothing. So why even ask if someone is enjoying their meal if you are not going to do anything when the response comes back, very politely and graciously, in the negative? To end, I will return to Benoit only because there are few French Bistros in this caliber in NYC."

"The food was delicious, however after explaining to our waiter that we had a 7:30pm curtain, he managed to ignore us for 10 minutes prior to taking our order. We had allowed an hour and a half for dinner and because of the service we were late for the show."
