Disappointed this time around.... Much better available elsewhere........ it sucked
Sent back my Hanger Steak back twice because it was room temp. Meanwhile my table of 5 was finished with their meal. ( not even a comment from the waiter) No wonder they are closing at the end of March.. Really lost the groove. Not to mention the manager is way too full of himself. No Loss here going out of business. Have fun elsewhere......

This is among the best three restaurants on the peninsula! If John Bentley's closes down, I sure hope he will sell a cookbook...or open another restaurant!.

Always perfect. I have two favorites, scallops and pork chops. So hard to decide!

Excellent food and just the right portions. We enjoyed the hangar steak and salmon as our entrees and the dessert special of bread pudding was delicious!!

We hadn't been to John Bentley's in a while and were thrilled we went over the holidays. The food and service were both outstanding. Each of us in our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The Gluten Free Chocolate Cake was to die for - particularly appreciated by those with gluten intolerance. Sad to see such a quality restaurant close in spring after so many great years on the Peninsula.

Food here rarely disappoints. The watermelon crab appetizer is delicious and fresh. Fish is fresh and we'll prepared. Intimate atmosphere. Great martinis.

John Bentley's didn't disappoint! Four of us had a delicious dinner and a very special evening. Two of us had the asparagus soup. It was a tad bit bland and could have been warmer. The other two had wedge salads and they were very tasty and a good sized salad.
Two of us had the sea bass, one person had scallops and the other, sweet breads. ALL of us loved our meal. Everything was cooked to perfection, nothing was overdone. For dessert we had the sticky toffee pudding and a pear dessert. Everything was spot on.
