It was difficult for me to name a price range for Benjy's. You could easily grab a sandwich or a personal pizza with a non-alcoholic drink for less than $10.00 a head, or you can go all out and have an outstanding four-course meal with wine for a very reasonable $25-35 dollars a head. I am particularly drawn to this restaurant because it offers upscale meals at mid-range prices. However, whether or not you choose to go upscale, you will get a delicious meal for your money. Duck and scallop dishes are particularly tasty, as are the desserts, and all dishes are artfully arranged. A very tasty Sunday brunch (served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) is also highly recommended.

The decor is very modern and very urbane, and pretty impressive at first glance. However, it is also very noisy and the seats aren't particularly comfortable--well worth putting up with, though. Also, while dress is casual, there is a certain "hipness" to the place that might make you feel out of place if you show up in jeans and a tee shirt.

The restaurant recommends making reservations, but I have personally never made them.
