We come often because we like
We come often because we like the privacy of the booths, the great service, the excellent food, and the variety of the foods. My partner can have the "Chop" as he calls it and I get salad and a small plate. We were there recently for a daughter's birthday and we were very happy with the food and the service.

My husband and I were passing
My husband and I were passing through Salem and although we had several recommendations for other restaurants we liked the look of Bentley's Grill. We were not disappointed and were glad that we had stayed in the hotel and enjoyed the bar and restaurant on site.
I had the lamb shank and it was really good. My husband had the hanger steak with the blue cheese butter and it was beautifully cooked.

Love the food!
We had the Thai Chicken Salad, and the Soup of the day (Broccoli Cream)with Chicken Salad Sandwich. All of the above items were yummy and we would order them again!

Nicest dinner environment downtown.
A unique eating environment for Salem. Service is always good.

This was our first time at
This was our first time at this restaurant and were very happy to have found it. Nice open area, but still quite cozy. Went for dinner and the food was fast getting to us, and as we ordered and expected. Very good. Also, the service was top notch. Didn't go to the bar area, but would like to check that out next time, it not only is a full bar, but has an extensive wine selection as well.

I chose Scenic View, because I find it enjoyable to sit in a window booth and look out onto Liberty Street in downtown Salem. The service is always excellent and they are happy to modify the menu option to make it low carb for me.

I enjoyed bently's. I was
I enjoyed bently's. I was meeting a couple of female friends for dinner and got there an hour before our reservation. The wait staf seated me immediately and was attentive. It's a good place to meet due to its central location and open dining room.
I had a seafood 'martini' which was quite good. I also ordered a bottle of wine to enjoy while I waited for my friends. Sadly, my first choice for was not available. Sold out! My second choice was quite acceptable, however, and reasonably priced at $54.
Butternut ravioli was good but desert rocked my world! I should have skipped dinner and left more room for desert. Good place.

Dining at Bentley's is a night
Dining at Bentley's is a night out, not merely the eating of a meal. My wife and I think it's the best restaurant in Salem, and we have visited many times. She chose butternut squash ravioli and thought it was delicious and of just the right amount. I commented to our server, Dallas, that I wish the flat iron steak were still on the menu, so he recommended the hanger steak and said I would probably like it. I did enjoy it very much - juicy, tender, every bit edible. (I liked the flat iron steak better, though.) Of the four available sauces, I had mushroom and was given a generous helping of tasty musrooms with the sauce. As always, the service was excellent and the atmosphere inviting.

The service and atmosphere were amazing. Our waiter was friendly and met our needs. However, a bigger menu would be preferred.

Food, service, atmosphere, Bentley's delivered in all aspects!!!!

Wonderful Mothers Day menu
I had been to the restaurant before, but was presently surprised top see a special mothers day menu. Wonderful choices to choose from. My mom ordered the lobster and dad the steak. It was superb! Thank you!

Good Business Lunch
Lunch menu is simple and moderately priced. Enough variety but you don't have to spend too much time on the menu. Service was friendly but a little slower this trip than usual; it wasn't a problem. If you choose to indulge in dessert the prices, like most places, are way too high. Atmosphere is great
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
It is a nice restaurant, with some ambiance, with high ceiling to make it feel grand. We had great service and good food for a fairly reasonable price. However, they failed to tell me that my spinach asparagus dip was extremely hot, and I ended up burning the roof of my mouth really bad...meaning that it hurt to eat for a couple days. Besides the failure to inform, and me being distracted, it was good!

Will not disappoint
Easily one of the best restaurants in Salem. Something for everyone.

Nice Post Graduation DInner
Arrived late (9:30pm) after high school graduation and we were served and cared for as if we had arrived at a more "normal" dinner time. Nicely done! Thank youl.

We had a delightful dinner
We had a delightful dinner for 6 on Father's Day. Everyone in our party had a wonderful experience, our server was a delightful young lady. Our meals were great as was the dessert. We love the ambiance of Bentley's Grill and we would recommend the restaurant to all. We drive from the Harrisburg area and have family in North Portland so this location is convenient for a neutral meeting spot. Several of the restaurants I called about in Salem were not even open on Sundays so we will definitely visiit Bentley's Grill again.

Something we found buy using Open Table and were very glad we did...if we're ever back in the area a restaurant we'll be back to!

A relaxing night with out dishes
The hostess was pleasant. Server Jessica was perfect. She didn't bug us too much but just in case we needed something she was right in the area & came promptly. The bread & herbed butter with the meal was tasty. The chowder was as my daughter put it "real chowder" YUM. Not to our liking crab & shrimp cocktail, the sauce was too strong & the shrimp tasteless. So good, the breaded rockfish parmesan cooked perfectly. But the stand out was the risotto. Never had Risotto before and now it's one of our fav's.
My dessert was out of this world. The Dark chocolate flour-less cake (can't remember the name) with raspberry sauce sooooo good. Starts off rich and deep then quickly melts in your mouth and turns light and delicious.

Great food and Great Service
We were so pleased with the The Grand Hotel experience and Bentley's Grill just topped off a perfect day!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ambiance is conducive to a restful experience. Service was prompt; waitress very friendly. We were surprised at the speed with which the meal was delivered.

We had no idea about restaurants
We had no idea about restaurants in Salem and choose Bentley's just from looking online at different options. Bentley's was a great choice, the food was good, the atmosphere was very nice and our server was excellent.

Food was superb as agreed
Food was superb as agreed by all. Extensive ,although high priced wine list. But it was a wonderful restaurant and I would return.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is warm, cozy and gracious. The entire staff was welcoming, efficient and very friendly. We order the seafood martini cocktail and it was one of the best we have ever had, full of shrimp and crab. Our server happily supplied us with additional cocktail sauce...it was so good. Our pizzettas were wonderful, full of flavor from the chantrelle mushrooms and the chicken cajun sausage. Wonderful wine list! We thoroughly enjoyed out dining experience, thank you for the gracious service.

A great evening
The reservation process on-line was great. The webpage is intuitive and well constructed.
Our evening at Bentley's was fantastic. The receptionist greeted us and identified us immediately. We were taken to our table and seated quickly. Our server, Dan, did a great job. He is very personable and kept our glasses full. He was very accommodating (our friends were late getting to the restaurant). He did not make us feel rushed or that he was impatient. He did a great job.
The food was fantastic. A very enjoyable meal.

Great Service, Perfect find.
On our back from Lincoln City we found this spot at the Grand Hotel and really enjoyed the food, service, and the overall atmosphere. Had the Ahi, soup, salad, and Seafood Martini which all were great! If we are in Salem again we will come back.

Family reunion lunch
We recently had a family reunion lunch at Bentley's and everyone was very pleased with the restaurant, the food, the service and location. It was a great pick. The waiter did a great job taking care of our table but wasn't too intrusive. They gave us a table in a quiet area of the restaurant so we could visit and didn't rush us out once we were done dining. All in all a great choice, I will return.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
food for thought
We had a great evening. Our food choices were on the mark. Filet migon was melt in your mouth.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pricey but worth it...
Def not a place that you visit every weekend, but great for a special occasion. Went for our anniversary and had a great time. Very laid back, not pushy on the specials, and nothing but amazing flavor all around. A very unique place in a city you wouldn't expect.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good food
Had a family gathering- 6 adults, 2 kids (very well behaved). Excellent cocktails and Eola Hills Cabernet. Also excellent filets, fish, and burgers. All were prepared as ordered. I think we tried most of the desserts and would have enjoyed more of them except for the capacity problem.
We had dinner here because I was staying at the Grand Hotel which was adjoining. I also recommend the hotel highly.
But either way, staying next door or coming in 'off the street' with a reservation, this is a "do not miss" restaurant in Salem. Maybe in the whole state!
10/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
I ordered the fungi pizza for $12.99 and it was more than I can eat and it was really good if you like thin crust pizza. My husband ordered the Bentley burger for $9.95 medium rare and it came out perfect with a plate full of fries and he loved it.

Food was delicious, service
Food was delicious, service was pleasant & professional, not too hovering and poetic, lively scene, but quiet seating for us oldies, not as expensive as I expected, good ambience.

We traveled by car to Salem from Sacramento and were very pleased to find that Bentley's had great food and a private booth waiting for us. The wood-fired pizzas are really good and the seafood fresh and large portion. Very nice local wine.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love the experience!
Always love our time at Bentleys. It has been a favorite place to celebrate the special events in life. Service is always good, food is always outstanding and we always love sitting by the fire. The perfect restaurant in my opinion!!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a great place for a date night with my wife. The service was fantastic as was the meal. Best steak I have had out in a long time. Nice menu choices.
