I went to dinner here with some friends. The description of the food seemed off. And unfortunately the food did not meet my expectations. Some examples: the appetizer and description from the waitress seemed like a cheese dip, but it was a thick slice of cheese that was cooked (broiled maybe?). I ordered the seafood risotto and the rice was definitely a white & dry rice on top of a tomato sauce with mostly rubbery seafood. The steak someone else ordered came much too over cooked and it was limp, which we found odd. the service was okay and they comped our entrees since we sent it back and chose to not eat there. It also took maybe just under an hour for our us to finally receive All of our food. Which we ended up ultimately sending back.

I have seen many good reviews, so maybe this was just an off night. But I wanted to at least share my experience.

Service and the drinks were, as usual, above and beyond. Ordered the prime cut rib eye, and was delivered a chunk of meat, that was very, very large. Wish the waiter would have advised the enormous size of the portion. Would certainly return for future meals.

Daniel was great--knowledge of menu; worked very well with special dietary requirements; was a very pleasant conversationalist;
This is the second time Daniel has been our server and we love that experience.
It was good to see the bar and dining room so full, especially on a Monday evening. It speaks well for the excellence of the restaurant!! At the same time the noise level was very comfortable (the high ceilings?)
Thanks for another great experience.

The service was great. The food wasn't special at all... really blend. The prices were a tiny bit high for what it was.
It was a little noisy but nothing crazy...

So oevrall all... Meh... you're not going to be disappointed but nothing special... it's an OK option.

The bar is great though, great Bartenders, really good drinks... that I will recommend...

First time - Our gift to our Grandaughter to celebrate her 21st birthday. She wanted to go to a fancy restaurant to order a glass of wine. While she didn't get a wine she did enjoy a couple of fun cocktails.
She ordered the Ribeye and I ordered the Filet Minon, both were great.
The service was great and as I was looking around I realized one of the reasons why. Turns out this place is owned by VIP'S Restaurant, a place I was employed for over ten years as a young woman. Small world and at age 65 it brought back many good memories.
Keep up the great work and clean place to eat.

This was our first time at Bentleys Grill. We wanted to find a good place for a birthday dinner, but know from experience that generally the chefs assigned to Sunday aren’t always the best. Not sure who was in the kitchen, but clearly the staff on shift cared about food.
Everything we had, from Starters to Mains were not only good; they were the best we have ever had. The plating and presentation on everything was perfect.
We started with the Calamari Satay, an original approach. The skewers were the nod to Satay, the breading wasn’t, but was scrumptious, as was the spicy dip. The Tempura prawns were flawless, the Asian slaw with both was delicious.
My husband had the Scallop dinner, the pineapple saffron sauce was incredible. My son had the Fettucini Prawns...delicious! I had one of the specials, a Sea Bass with risotto...again, superlative! We had no room to sample the desserts, but as we plan to return, I’m sure we won’t be disappointed.
The service was well paced and attentive, without hovering. We are still talking about this meal a few days later. Bravo,

TJ

We celebrated my parents 61st anniversary last night. Our waitress was friendly, attentive, and gracious. The chef has created several excellent dishes (smoked salmon appetizer, the prawns and crab, Wiener schnitzel, duck l’orange, and calzone were all delicious). The atmosphere is very nice. I’d highly recommend Bentley’s!

We love Bentley's. We spend too much when we go there because the bar is excellent. There are specials for food as well as a nice regular menu and wine list. The hamburger is great for $16. I also like the Porterhouse Pork, and the scampi. The staff is friendly and efficient for the most part. Good spot for romantic dinner or business dinner. My book group likes to meet in the bar on martini night.

Ty Curtis was a draw!! He is perfect for an enjoyable evening. Decided to order 4 different appetizers rather than 2 entrees. Perfect! We had the Brussel Sprouts, the oysters, the tri-tip and the Ahi. Every dish was delicious and made the evening so fun for us. We samples 4 great dishes and got to hear our favorite music.
