Had dinner in December 2016, and was not overly impressed. The food was good and the service was alright, but the floors and bathrooms were a little under serviced. When I eat in an "upscale establishment," I believe all public areas should be pristine. If I can see debris on floors in public view it doesn't make me think that... More

We arrived and were immediately taken to our table ( had reservation). Within minutes we had water , bread and cocktails. Our waiter was very knowledgable and helped us (3) decide the correct quantity to order. We decided to go with steak for three with a side of baked potatoes. We had plenty to eat and even had some left... More

Ben & Jack's Steak House hosted a business seminar with drinks and appetizers in a private room. The room was spacious with good acoustics. The AV sight lines were satisfactory. Service was prompt and efficient. The food was good with a mix of things to eat. The restaurant is recommended.

We had received some vouchers from the hotel otherwise we probably wouldn't have found this place. It looks very classy and expensive. Well it is classy, but really not expensive at all. We had the most amazing steak dinner, accompanied by champagne - the atmosphere was excellent, and the staff were spot on!

I come from Italy: the fillet was simply perfect, well done (on my indication), tasty, one of the finest cut of meat I've ever eaten. No reservation at lunch, 1 glass of Chianti, 1 mojito (good!), tap water, 2 fillet, 1 sauteed spinach (too much garlic!) 150$ (tip 20$ included). Chapeau!

The best steak I have ever tasted. The staff were helpful with advice on the menu. The sides were good & Mac an cheese is well worth a try There were plenty of people leaving with "doggy bags". Unfortunately I couldn't manage desert as the steak was so good.
