    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

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

    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!

    The décor exudes Paris–reminding us of elegant bistros on the rive droite. Also, Benoit New York borrows menu classics from the Parisian original, such as paté en croûte (an 1892 recipe) Read more

    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]

    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..

    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.
