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.

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

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.
