    The second location of benjy's is quieter than you'd expect for its Washington Avenue location, without any of the hassle of forced valet or clubby music throbbing in the dining room. Read more

    This place is so swanky! Came during brunch and the service here is totally superb. I recommend getting blood orange mimosas and the Crunchy Chicken if you, like me, aren't a big breakfast food fan.

    The food is amazing, the staff is very friendly, I would definitely come back and try the red snapper and the chocolate cake together with that wonderful cappuccino

    Delicious food and cocktails. The patio was relaxing once the sun went down. And the tres leches was phenomenal!

    Great happy hour and what makes it even better is the upstairs patio! Great views from up there. Great place for a date or a night out with friends.

    Benjy's was one of the first Houston restaurants to latch onto & push forward the whole local movement. This translates into a seasonal, changing menu and creative, exciting dishes. [Eater 38 Member]

    I came here for a friends birthday dinner and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was good but very limited as the menu is small. It is a little over priced as well. Fun atmosphere, worth a try.

    The HH is INSANE! In every possible good way! The patio is one of the best in the city. Salmon Sashimi, Pork Dumplings, Kobe Meatballs, Pizza, Mojitos, Blood Orange Margaritas.

    The spicy popcorn was a nice touch, if a bit overzealous for a pre meal snack. I had some sort of fish sandwich and was pretty disappointed with the overpowering bread and sauce.

    The strip steak and shrimp was great. My wife got the braised ribs and she said they were wonderful.

    I love Benjy's for brunch. Peach mimosa is a must, the french toast is my favorite meal. Great service, great food.

    Absolutely love the food! Only wish the top bar area was open on Sundays. Sometimes you want brunch and NFL football at the same time :-)

    An open concept and plenty of hard surfaces means on a busy night, this is no place to try and grab a quiet dinner.
