    The beef burger was cooked to order and very tasty, tender, with great flavor with the red onion topping and brie. The duck leg was fall apart tender and rich, really lovely. The truffle fries were a great accompaniment and the focaccia bread was truly our favorite - soft and fluffy in the middle and crisp around the edges. Really delightful. Our service was outstanding, with our waitress anticipating our needs moments before we had to ask for anything. My companion and I shared every dish and our waitress had the burger cut in half for us, had share plates ready, and in general, took great care of us. The staff also gifted us with a special cookie dessert, in celebration of Pride Month and we were delighted.

    Food and service are great. Noise level is annoying. If the management would lower the volume of the background music, diners would naturally lower the volume of their voices. One has to shout to be heard. Consequently, this small and otherwise fabulous restaurant is not for a relaxing meal with friends. I do go alone sometimes, ideally when the place will be less crowded... and I am always made to feel welcome. My only criticism is that one can almost be guaranteed a frenetic experience. Not my ideal meal experience.

    Went to Ben Paris on Thursday June 16. Their menu offerings is limited but good. Drinks are excellent but the food is where Ben Paris falls short. I ordered the Wagyu burger and could not eat it. The patty looked unappetizing texture wise and did not taste good. The French fries were good. My son ordered the risotto and it still had too much liquid to our taste. My husband ordered the fried chicken and this was actually quite excellent. So food-wise, I think it’s a hit or miss. The server was quite professional. It’a a lovely space great for drinks and happy hour. I would not have dinner there again.

    We had a reservation pre theatre. Our sweet server was very accommodating and aware of our timing as to how long we had to eat. She told us about the history of the restaurant as well. From the drinks to the food-yumm! We shared Barata, cauliflower/kale salad and the most delicious chicken for 3 and it was perfect. We will definitely be back!!

    Our server was a delight, the food not so much. We had the risotto & it was almost sickening to eat after more than 2-3 bites. The lemon meyer cake was a wonderful dessert though! The drinks were cute but VERY limited cocktail menu.

    Beautiful space and excellent service. We ordered the blue cheese appetizer and the shishito pepper appetizer- both were tasty and generous portions. As main dishes, we had the steak, the risotto, and the fried chicken. The dishes had nuanced flavors and were well prepared. The cocktails were great and the experience was rounded out with an attentive server and staff.

    Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Drink menu and drinks were creative and pleasing to the eye and taste. Menu was very creative and price point was good for happy hour. The food, however, was very salty. When food is truly good, there is no reason to over salt.

    Our waiter did a good job, though was being pulled in a lot of directions. It felt a bit understaffed. He had good knowledge and recommendations for wine and food. The starters were a bit limited. We chose the blue cheese, which came in a substantial slice, but with only two little crostini. It forced us to also order the focaccia bread, which felt a bit like a scam. The blue cheese was terrific with a real kick. The risotto was fabulous - creamy, cheesy and luscious with grilled asparagus spears. The cobb salad was okay. I didn't care for the dressing or the use of diced pork belly rather than bacon. We had a Willakenzie rose' that was very nice, quite dry.

    We were seated immediately when we arrived right at 7:00 PM. Albert was our server. He was wonderful, allowing us time to admire the wall mural and to enjoy the ambiance before asking us to order. My partner had the Cobb Salad and a wonderful glass of Rose. I ordered the Duck Confit (which Albert recommended) and a wonderful IPA. We overheard Albert tell the table next to us the story of the wall mural along the inside wall and at the end of the meal we asked him to tell us the story again. Prices were very affordable. Overall a wonderful experience.

    The service was exceptional. But the food… it’s complicated. The fried chicken and side of kimchi was intended to emulate Korean fried chicken. It wasn’t close and neither was the kimchi. To be fair, I ate all of it. It tasted good. The menu didn’t represent it as Korean fried chicken. My purely subjective opinion is the dish needed a little work but it was perfectly edible.

    Ben Paris' service is commendable to say the least. When I arrived to check in for my reservation, the host was so sweet and welcoming! She and the waitstaff were consistent in checking in with us, pouring us water, and ensuring that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The prices for food and drink are accurate to the quality. I definitely recommend dining here, especially for the service!
