Excellent service with delicious food. We keep coming back to this amazing place. Bensons has an extensive, modern menu and a great wine list! Thanks Jenny and Brent!
It was great, the food arrived looking fantastic really enjoyed the Parma. Brilliant!
Great food and service. Good value for money. Staff were very pleasant. Only suggestion would be for some sun blinds on the windows as the setting sun was quite annoying
Good Food - Service only OK - Timing poor We were greeted well, and shown our table. Then left for some time, we had BYO wine and the glasses were on the table, but my teenage kids wanted a soft drink / Mocktail. After I finally gained the attention of the waitress this was arranged. The food was all good, but one meal came much later than all the others. That was even after our meals sat for some time on the servery under hot lamps, hence were overly hot on top and a bit cool underneath. Again, the actually food was good. Summary, service needs a bit of improvement, but food if worth trying. We will still go back.
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.
