    Fantastic! Interesting yet classic. Even just to pop in for the profiterolles is worth a visit!! Great wines and beer. 5 star service.

    Do not skip these dessert: vanilla millefeuille, chocolate soufflé with pistachio ice cream (with crunchy pistachio bits), profiteroles with tableside chocolate sauce service.

    Grab a seat at the bar, order a drink and some steak frites. Best French bistro in midtown.

    Was very disappointed. I read "be transported to Paris in NYC" - no way. Terrible ambience. It was so loud I could barely talk to the person next to me.

    Restaurant week winter 2016 menu was a winner for value and quality. Escargot in garlic butter, roasted cod with fried capers and croutons and ice cream for dessert. Each dish prepared and played well

    I love the cassoulet and the foie gras. Of course the duck confit is the best in the city.

    Feed the francophile! Alain Ducasse true bistro classics. Order the sharable charcuterie platter (with a tiny jar of cornichons, crusty bread + Dijon). Stellar lunch= salad w/roast organic chicken

    Alain Ducasse place but probably not the top of his line. Probably the best is lunch or dinner (must be there before 6:30) prix fixe. They give you a little present (was merengue for me) after dinner

    Only french brasserie worth a damn in midtown. Great place to do a nice meal, or just grab a steak frites and a drink alone at the bar after MOMA. Pied de Cochon are tasty, and the coq au vin is money

    Decent selection of wines available by the generous carafe. Also: free cheese bread puffs. So. Savory. So. Good.

    Great seasonal soups (French onion, gazpacho, butternut squash). Steak frites hits the spot. Soufflé or profiteroles to share for dessert a must.

    Chef Philippe Bertineau started off his New York career at Daniel 20 years ago and has remained a friend ever since. Don’t miss his cassoulet!

    Alain Ducasse’s high-end bistro modeled after the original Benoit in Paris. It has a rich beautiful décor however maintains a relaxing vibe. We highly recommend the Cassoulet!

    casual French restaurant serves faithful versions of all your bistro favorites like coq au vin, cassoulet, and escargots. The bar room is a cool place for after-work cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

    The bar room is a cool place for after-work cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and on the weekends, Benoit serves one of the best brunches in Midtown (it includes a dessert buffet). [Eater 38 Member]

    $4 for a soda. 3/4 full of ice in a highball glass. Nice ambiance though.

    Meringues were once called the forgotten cookies, as they can be cooked in a cooling oven, but it would be difficult for diners to overlook the pink, almond-sprinkled meringues bagged at Benoit.

    not overly impressed with this place. although service was great, the food didn't live up to the fact that it's part of the Alain Ducasse family of restaurants. stick to the basics here..

    The three-course, $25 lunchtime prix fixe menu is one of the better deals in midtown. And per Adam Platt, the signature tarte flambée is worth a special trip. Read more

    Benoit Bistro: It's on the pricey side, but it is authentic French food. The service is great too. If it is your first at Benoit, try the salmon puff pastry and Crème brûlée is a must have. Read more

    Skip it. Sorry, but this is the worst restaurant in NYC. Food not even mediocre, service terrible. Ardour, Alain Ducasse and his other high end restos around the world are great, so go there instead.

    Skip it. Sorry, this is the worst restaurant in NYC. Food rarely hits mediocre, service terrible, loud. Adour and Alain Ducasse in NYC are superb, and I'm sure his other high end restos are too.
