We appreciated the fact that the host/hostess was able to accommodate 6 people when we had only made the reservation for 2! Our table was excellent and slightly out-of-the-way from the main dining crowd. The service was outstanding and timely. Highly recommended for any special occasion

Excellent food, very friendly and helpful staff - even made us a special cocktail (not on their menu) to celebrate a special event for us. Prices reasonable for an upscale dining experience, also a discount for those staying at the Grand Hotel.

We like to dine here on New Year’s Eve. The food and service is always tops and the seating is not crowded. The parking garage is very convenient on cold evenings!
We also enjoy lunch here occasionally.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on December 24, 2017

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.

Our food was excellent, everyone thought their meal was very good. We have been here a number of times and it actually seems to be getting better. The only complaint if you can call it that was the noise level was a little too high for us to enjoy our meal. We were sitted in the middle by the fire and really struggled to hear our small group speak.

We have been to Bentley's quite a few times and never disappointed. The chef and servers are very customer focused. One of our party wanted to change out the sauce on an Alfredo/Chicken pasta dish and it not only was no problem but the marinara was excellent.
Excellent bar selection, seating and staff.
very nice lighting and booth seating; unusual fire pit in the middle of the restaurant makes it extra special.

Even with a reservation it took 20 minutes to get a table and the server showed up after another 15 minutes. The Boursin was excellent but the balance of the meals was mediocre and the $31 steak was tougher than shoe leather . . . My advice is go somewhere else!

For the price of the food, dinner salads really should be included with the meals. We came here for our anniversary and were slightly disappointed. I think our expectations were high because it seemed like a fancy place to dine. I would say that it was only "okay".

One of my favorite spots for dinner and conversation, but I am especially glad when I can get a quiet booth by the window, which I request and usually get by setting up a reservation on OpenTable. The menu is does have a lot of items that have been on the menu for years (Bentley burger, and their seafood chowder) because they are good and favorites, and the menu doesn't have a large number of choices, but I can always find something I like. The Harissa Steak Salad is one of the newer items, yummy, for about $16

I had big expectations for Bentley’s as I truly ll bowl of clam chowder) it was nothing spectacular. I’ve had better salad at Applebee’s. I ordered light because I had every intention of ordering dessert as it was my birthday, yet I was not offered anything other than my check, which was offered midway through my salad. My server did always make sure my glass was filled, yet I come from a background in customer service so it was not great not terrible. Overall the place is beautiful but the food and service was not what I remember and not worth the price. Unfortunately I will not be coming back or recommending to friends.

Great location for meeting friends by the fire pit. Smoked Mac and cheese is the best. The service was really accommodating and friendly. I did have difficulty understanding how to reserve a table on line for more than 2 people. I ended up going back in to the reservation system after I received initial email confirmation and was able to edit the number of diners. The system was not very intuitive and seems to operate different each time I use it.

We arrived promptly for our six o'clock reservation to find the reception area clogged as the computer had failed (What? No backup?). We noted that all the booths on the fireplace level - where we had requested a booth - were filled. The harried receptionist apologized profusely but said she no options following the computer foul-up. When I noted two large tables with reserved signs in the area, and questions their status, she offered something about large groups were noted differently, etc. She then offered a small two chair table in a hallway where we could wait for a booth there to clear. I noted that booths along the front window aisles were vacant. She then offered us any one of those booths and would comp us an appetizer and each of us a drink for the trouble.

From then on things went very nicely as she (I don't recall her name) had informed our waitress Jamie of the situation.

The service was prompt, the food was delivered on time, hot and well presented. My wife's fillet and my rib-eye were cooked perfectly and, I must say, my ordering the rib-eye was a risk as their quality in Salem is rarely good, was the best experienced around here. We were not rushed with time to enjoy the complimentary birthday desert and a shared coffee nudge.

We were both able to thank our waitperson and the receptionist for a quality level response to a business foul-up.
