If comfort is a concern, consider putting a cushion on your bench. Some companies sell cushions already made or you can custom order them. If you're handy with fabric, you can opt to make a customized cushion yourself. Most fabric stores have poly-foam that you can use for the padding and it is pretty easy to shape.
The reason for this is that bench seats take up quite a bit of space and cannot be easily moved from their static location. If you think about it, how many times have you seen someone take a bench seat from a dining room to the kitchen to add additional space? It's not very likely, although if a room has sufficient room and a seating arrangement that would not change often, there very well could be a use for a dining room table with a bench seat. This is not to say that a bench seat is not useful, but having one in a dining room can severely limit the mobility and space of a room.
Once you decide how many dining room benches you want and where you want to place it, you need to decide upon the style of the bench as well. There are many different choices available to you. The first choice you have is the traditional dining room bench. This is probably exactly what you are picturing. It is an all wooden bench which is simple in design and has no back at all. The style is nice as it is simple, but it can also be easily pushed underneath the dining room table when not in use.
