Duane and Pedro, owners of Benchmark

Thank you LOCALE Magazine for the article and feature about our restaurant. We love how this quote perfectly captures the essence of Benchmark and the experience we aim to offer our diners:

“When you walk into Benchmark Restaurant, an upscale casual eatery tucked in the quaint scene of downtown Santa Ana, the invitation is clear: stay awhile. Both a motto and an ethos, this cozy mandate can be felt the moment you arrive—the ambiance is made to create an unforgettable dining experience. With a tree-filled outdoor area and an intimate covered patio, Benchmark is a tribute to nostalgic backyard dinners with friends. The food is refined yet approachable—local cuisine that’s meant to be shared.” – Writer Oakey Daskas for LOCALE
