So a friend and I went to Benjy's on the 18th and our waiter, Jason showed no enthusiasm! I'm not sure if the issue was with us or maybe he was tired. When he brought my tea I guess he thought he was playing cards and flicked my coaster at me like an Ace of Kings! My friend didn't see... More

We went to Benjy's for an early dinner on Saturday. While it does not look much from the outside, the interior is inviting with a somewhat eclectic modern design. The service was very friendly and attentive. We were very impressed by the interesting menu options, and there were a few we would have loved to try. We chose the One... More

A very interesting menu, with a great choices. The only weakness was we had a vegetarian in the group, and there were no good entree choices. They did provide an off menu option, but truthfully, it didn't seem as good as the choices the rest of us had. The salmon was fantastic, with a spicy bite that was a perfect... More

Menu seemed short at first but then realized I wanted to sample everything. And our fantastic waiter, Jason, obliged by bringing sample when we couldn't decide between two sides. Phillip was Jason's shadow and knew the menu inside and out. Very helpful. Won't stay gone from this one for very long.

I went for happy hour to Benjy's and really enjoyed myself. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant and the happy hour menu is very good. Great craft cocktails to choose from and the bar menu is great too. We tried the goat cheese appetizer which was delicious and one of their flatbread pizzas...also very good!

They offer a great selection of wonder appetizers at "happy hour" prices from 4-7 pm. The lamb meatballs are wonderful and the grilled octopus is tender and tasty. The serving of chicken filets was huge and enough for two and the pancetta pizza had a great sauce. The roasted Brussels Sprouts were some of the best I've ever had. Top... More

The food is absolutely phenomenal. Everything I had was cooked perfectly and bursting with flavor. SO accommodating for my gluten allergies as well! I chose two items that weren't marked gluten free on the menu and they made it happen! I would absolutely come back here! The ambiance/aesthetic I'd say is industrial chic. Very cool! The staff is SO lovely... More
