Bad service - servers unprofessional, lack of proper service training in menu, wine, etc.

Your wine list is extremely limited. I enjoyed your previous menu much better than your Tapas menu (Although a very good menu, I'm not a fan of Tapas). I left your place spending way too much money (even with the Groupon) and still was hungry (and I'm not a big eater). Sorry, I won't be back...

I'm very excited to have found this restaurant thanks to their offer on Groupon. The food was delicious and I enjoyed the atmosphere. Having spent two years living in Spain, I'm often disappointed with the American version of Spanish style food. Not here. I'm already planning my next visit to Benjamin Tapas!

date, cheese, bacon wraps are very bland - suggest spicing up perhaps with cinnamon & orange

The hostess practically sat us in someone else's lap while there were open tables elsewhere. Very uncomfortable seating situation. Waiter forgot to bring us bread for the table--we had to ask. Check was calculated incorrectly. Little things like this should not happen if this business is trying to establish itself in Highland Park!

They were slow to b ring us a second basket of bread. However, they brought us a complimentary dish that was very tasty. I think that is classy.

From Our Editors

Benjamin Brasserie’s sleek, elegant dining room is staggering, hosting dark tables basking in the warm glow of chandeliers, which reflect off opulent mirrors. Beneath high ceilings, guests slide onto plush seats in the main dining room, or snuggle into private animal-print booths on the mezzanine, serenaded by a combination of blues, jazz, and alternative music, which compliments the restaurant's urban stylized decor. Professional servers adorn tabletops with seasonal plates piled with fresh, local produce and meats from Midwest farms. Local whitefish, bacon from Jones Farm, and greenhouse tomatoes comprise executive chef Benjamin Brittsan’s innovative meals, which are artfully plated to stun both eyes and taste buds.
