Always a great place to have a good meal for any occasion. Lunch and dinner are both favorites. It is a good adult dining experience.
I ate in the bar because I was by myself and football on TV. The bartender was GREAT although the martinis were a little small. Shrimp cocktail was a little bland but the steak was awesome and cooked perfectly.
Despite knowing the number of reservations for Christmas Eve, they were still behind (server said kitchen was slammed), steaks were under cooked (rare vw. Medium) and service was harried and rushed. They forgot the prearranged Birthday recognition. Just a major disappointment and not a good experience.
I am so sorry to hear you are closing. We will miss the great meals. You were our favorite restaurant in North County.
Very good. We are sorry they are closing. ENJOYED IT!
We celebrated a friend's birthday and we took advantage of the Sunday/Monday specials. It's always wonderful and such a bargain. So sorry that it's closing
Great food and atmosphere
Wonderful wait staff
Seating was prompt, service was even prompter. This is one of the most outstanding restaurants in Encinitas and the only real Steak House in the area. Prices are reasonable, ambiance is very pleasant. There is no clattering of dishes, loud chatter or loud music. Very easy to carry on a conversation. Was there last year for my 80th Birthday Party in a private room. Very very enjoyable.
Seated quickly! Nice quiet area of restaurant. Service was quick, nice wine list and all courses were brought quickly. Prime rib special was very nice and cooked to perfection and exactly as we ordered. Loved the horseradish sauce was excellent. The place was full the whole time we were there. Bentley’s would be lovely place to celebrate any occasion.
We have been to this restaurant about 30 times. For the first time we found our meat undercooked and had to send it back. Also, I reserved a quiet table for hearing impaired but we were put next to a huge family with little screaming kids running around.
Mrs and I enjoyed a drink at the bar while waiting for our table, talking with other friendly patrons. Table was ready when expected. Our server, Eric, was always attentive and helpful. Our meal was well prepared. Great overall experience.
We all had Bentleys Thanksgiving Day Feast. It was spectacular. I brought some home
and had to share the next day. Bummer. Seriously, we enjoyed each and every morsel.
We will go again.Thanks to Tom & a wonderful staff. Neal & Shorty
Great food, great service at reasonable prices- great location too!!! Jennifer makes every experience an elegant one!!
We request a specific booth and they do their best to accommodate us!
My prime arrived cold and was thin & at least 30% fat!
I don't appreciate being seated in the back with the lights up high when there are better tables with better ambience available, but the food was good (salmon was slightly over done) and the service was above average.
