this wonderful restaurant is closing the end of March. There is no other restaurant like it on the Peninsula. Excellent food, excellent service and and a feeling that it is a special occasion to be at the restaurant. Eat there while you can!!

The food was excellent but the waiter got a little carried away with other guest. Took a bit more then 2 hours to bring us our entree. When it finally came, the pork chops was over cooked. They remedied it as fast as they could. All in all, would of given them a second chance if they were not closing. Great Luck John on your new endeavor!

First off, I am so incredibly sad that this was my first and probably last time at John Bentley's as they plan to close. The service was amazing and engaging, the food was delicious and the drinks were great. Normally when I ask if a place can make blue cheese stuffed olives for my martini I get a no - not here - they have blue cheese and bacon stuffed olives!

Food and service were great, but it was way too loud. I left with a headache. There was only two of us and we were seated in the back room with three tables that seats 8-10 people and we had to yell to hear each other. This restaurant is closing soon, but I wouldn't return.

This is our go-to restaurant on the Peninsula for special occasions and date nights. The food is beyond excellent and service top notch. Breaks our heart he has sold the building and is closing the end of March.

The artichoke soup and Chinese chicken salad were delicious, and the wait service was excellent. The selection of Chardonnay by the glass was a bit limited, but my wife found something that "was alright."

John Bentley's is one of our favorite restaurants for a quiet lunch, and it is a shame that it will permanently close sometime during March. I'll miss lunch at Bentley's!
