Eight of us dined at Bentley's on Easter. We had reservations and were quickly seated. Special requests were quickly accommodated. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. All the dinners arrived hot and delicious. We will be back.

My dinner mates had the fish special and found it very good. I had the pork loin special and the flavors were marvelous. However, the pork was dry and that took away from what could have been a 4 star plate.

We were VERY pleased with this find! Completely worth the drive. Food was amazing, service was fun and friendly (thanks Jace), and the atmosphere was perfect for our romantic anniversary dinner date.
Did I mention the absolutely amazing food?!?! To die for!
We would very much recommend Bentleys to everyone we know. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

Their filet mignon is usually very good, but they way overcooked it this time. Medium well isn't the easiest temperature for most restaurants, I know. But when it's way overcooked, no one wants to sit around and wait another 30-45 minutes while your date eats his meal.

So I got halfway through it and couldn't eat any more because it became too dry and tough. I explained this to the waitress, and she was like, "Yeah, it's just too tough, huh?" But instead of taking it off the bill, they bought us a dessert that we didn't even really want. And the manager never came over, which is what usually happens in a decent restaurant when they've fallen short. $36 wasted.

They were very accommodating with my gluten allergy, which is nice. And the spicy peel & eat prawns were modified by using white wine instead of beer, and they were really amazing.

The service was pleasant but EXTREMELY slow for some reason (and not just the overcooked steak). And the restaurant was dead. We were there so long, we missed our movie. Took about a half hour just to get a second drink. I think the whole meal took us two hours.

We had very good service. Someone was helping our server and brought out dinner one plate was wrong...belonged to the table next to us. Oops. When our dinner came it was good. I learned quail is better left running around in the wild. Stuffing was good and it seemed like it was cooked properly but I had to give up trying to eat the breast meat because of the rib bones. I couldn't separate the meat from the bones and got tired of biting into them. No blame on Bentleys just a learning experience.

My wife and I stopped in on our Drive from Eugene to Portland. What a great surprise. The foot was excellent especially the Mary's Chicken and the Peel and eat shrimp appetizer. It was relaxing and the waitress and other staff were very friendly. If you are in the area you must go to this restaurant. Nice bar and good mixed drinks with an indoor firepit for lounging.

We were very disappointed to see that our favorite anniversary menu item (seared ahi) was taken off of the menu. However, we thought that it was an opportunity to sample other offerings. We ordered 3 appetizers that we had not yet tried. The first appetizer, crab cakes, was wonderful and a true delight to sample. The following two appetizers, however, were monumental disappointments which left bad tastes in our mouths (both literally and figuratively). The prawn dish was perhaps the worst preparation of that shellfish we had ever sampled, and the calamari was entirely bland and forgettable. We still tried to enjoy our experience, despite the two poor appetizers, and hope to return once the sting of that experience fades.

We loved the food even though it was a little spendy for. Us. We enjoyed a nice intimTe diner until a large party was seated beside us including 3 small children and 2 babies. The babies cried off and on while the family took pics of the kids. We have kids of our own and understand that Bentleys is family friendly but when we are out on a date we would rather not have to listen to crying. Next time we will consider sitting in the lounge, Our waitress was very nice and even though it was busy our food came quickly and was perfectly cooked.

Ambiance and our Waitress were both excellent. The quality of the food was also excellent. We were there for Valentines dinner, and it took an hour for our food to be served to us. I made the reservation later to avoid the rush, but that didn't seem to help with timeliness. Our Waitress checked up on us regularly and gave us a free dessert due to the delay which was very nice. Lastly, I ordered the Salmon, that was excellently prepared, but the portion was quite small for the price. We live in the Northwest, and I don't expect us to skimp on Salmon out of season or not at $30/plate.

The ambience and decor are excellent and we enjoyed friendly, prompt service. Seafood chowder is delicious. The main courses, however, were on the bland side for this price point. The food isn’t cutting edge in any way, the Dijon sauce on the chicken wasn’t very flavorful, and the cioppino lacked zip. It’s a nice place with tons of potential, but the entree menu needs to be kicked up a notch.

Went here for a family dinner and the service was great. Food was decent overall; just not spectacular. Prime rib was well seasoned and a good cut. Another had chicken and said it was over cooked. We eat here every year and they were busy so this could have been an off night. We will go back because the restaurant is a great night out with family and like I said the service was great.
