Prime at the Bentley, NYC [Guest Review]

Review by Moshe B.

I recently had the opportunity of dining with a colleague at Prime @ the Bentley. Walking into the restaurant we were impressed by the thoughtful decor and stunning views. Upon the servers recommendation we both ordered the Bentley Rack & fries on the side. We were surprised when our food was brought out within ten minutes knowing that it normally takes much longer to cook such a thick & complex cut of meat.
 
While the meat was flavorful (the fries were excellent), it had a distinct taste of being reheated and was somewhat lukewarm on the inside. Upon inquiry, our waiter did not hold back the fact that our food was reheated (and in fact was two days old!).
 
It is difficult for me to express how upset we were over our dining experience. The Prime Grill has a reputation for bringing kosher dining to the next level (and charges for it!) and usual provides an experience that is truly memorable to both kosher & non kosher diners alike. Understandably the lack of full kitchen facilities (they do all the prep work, and apparently much of the cooking off site) at this venue presents unique challenges.
 
However, if they feel they can not live up to their reputation with the current menu, I suggest they change it.

    How is it that a web page named “yeah that’s kosher” has a banner ad running for treif meat?! (I.e. Niman Ranch). Very misleading and disappointing.

      Many of the ads on our site are from Google. Google ads are typically served to users based on their browsing history. Everyone sees different ads. I can’t explain why you saw ads for a treif restaurant. I apologize.

    i ate there 2 nights ago and they were out of the rack but they had regular steaks (i had steak frites (prime rib eye) and my mate had the flat iron steak. her’s wasn’t that special, kinda like a high-class really tender but less-salty tenderloin steak, but my steak was truly as good as a regular PG prime steak. i can’t know whether they reheated it or not (didn’t even think of it), but all i know is it did taste great to me, and the price was lower than at PG! also, the Cubed tuna (raw) was delicious and flavorful.

    This place has the worst service from any kosher steak house. I was never screamed at by the host and the waiter before last night. You feel like they are doing you a favor to serve you. Our food took close to two hours to come from when we ordered. However, the view is nice.
