    Benjy's is a great mainstay in Houston with solid food and nice staff, though the decor and atmosphere are just a little pretentious for what you get. The prices match this a bit too. Few beers

    Benjy's Happy Hour has a stellar selection of $6 cocktails (think lychee fizzs, blood orange margs, and peach spritzers), $5 wines by the glass, and $3 beers! Read more

    Everything we ordered was fantastic! Truly a 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 meal. I forget the name of the items we had and would not do it justice to just describe it as is, but everything we ate was superb!

    Great food with a cool Asian fusion twist. The hay-smoked duck breast made my life. Plus, there aren't many restaurants in Houston with a better vibe for twenty- to thirty-somethings!

    Benjy Levit has been serving some of the most creative modern American cuisine in the city since 1985. The Village location of Benjy's is remarkably small, but that's a part of its charm. Read more
