One of three sibling restaurant’s in the Melbourne area – the other two are in Brighton and Belgrave – Benson's Mt Waverley offers casual fine dining in chic and contemporary premises along The Highway, close to Stephenson Road and Mt Waverley station. The menu here showcases modern Australian cuisine, prepared with care in a kitchen committed to the traceability of the ingredients that make it into each and every dish.

With banquet seating and mood lighting, Benson's Mt Waverley is an intimate dining destination that rewards an advance booking.
We had a lovely lunch. The salt and pepper calamari is outstanding and the pumpkin bruschetta was delightful. Service is friendly and quick, good coffee
The service, food and ambiance was excellent. The expectation of a 25 word comment is excessive as I can express my views adequately in seven words
Excellent food and service as always, highly recommended. Bensons always makes you feel special, the staff are attentive and nothing is to much trouble, go there!
Great food and good selection offered on the menu. Being coeliac the chef catered for my dietary requirements. The staff were very pleasant and attentive.
Restaurant was very busy so I would suggest to make a booking, Very cold day so it was lovely to walk into a warm environment. Friendly welcome and excellent service. We all enjoyed our meals, Barramundi Special which was Gluten Free, chicken toastie, pork belly and lamb salad and a glass of wine made our lunch an excellent experience. Would recommend and we will go back.
Staff very professional, my meal was not as good as last time, it was a Risotto, the chicken was dry, and it was quite salty in taste, Coffee was good, my friends meal of smashed Avocado, was up to the usual good standard. I will return, but not choose the Risotto that I have had at a previous visit, because it was ok only.
The restaurant is comfortable with a friendly atmosphere. The menu was simple with, for us, adequate choice. Prices were reasonable. Staff were friendly and the service was excellent. There were two seafood dishes as 'special'. I had one my partner the other. Both were excellent. We both enjoyed or experience.
For my very 1st visit to Benson's Mt Waverley I found the food to be delicious and the staff to be friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere of the restaurant clean and welcoming and tables are well placed, not to close to others. Would be keen to visit again soon.
The food was good. Nice selection to choose from. Staff were friendly and left us to eat in peace. They didn't however, come up to us after we had eaten to see if we wanted anything else (not that we did), but usually you get wait staff who follow-up just in case.
A lovely meal and a nice quiet restaurant where the tables are not positioned right on top of each other. Service was a tad slow and not all of our party of ten got our meals at roughly the same time! But staff were friendly and helpful. i would definitely come again.
