I seriously can tell that the food are delicious and the service is incredible. I made a decision to try braised short ribs and yes it was delightful. Sadly though, smoked salmon crostini was average. I probably be back again soon.

The variety of the food, and the quality of the food was outstanding. The crusted chicken was excellent, and they made brussel sprouts even I would enjoy (I have never liked them). The service was spot on, and the dishes were done extremely well. I...More

W loved our brunch at Benjy's. The fried brussels sprouts were simply outrageous. You're forced to love them. (We actually asked for the recipe and were told we could have it. But then we forgot to get it when we paid the bill.) The rest...More
