John Bentley's - Redwood City Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
This is and always has been one of the very best restaurants in Bay Area. Period! The only problem, folks, is that John Bentley is going to retire in April which the entire world seems to know. So if you've never been, hurry up. If you have been before, hurry up. It will be a very sad day when we no longer can enjoy the wonderful experience of dining at John Bentley's.
John Bentley prepares the best meals on the peninsula. It is our family’s favorite restaurant for special occasions such as anniversaries and graduations. The staff is terrific and they always remember your name. Everything is terrific but the hanger steak, day boat scallops and pork chop are great. For desserts try the apple crisp or sticky toffee pudding. Nice wine list.
The food was creative, fresh and delicious. The service was wonderful and the ambiance delightful.
We really enjoyed finding this new experience and look forward to coming back and bringing friends. It was honestly the first restaurant in a longtime that surprized me!
first timer at JBs. wife and i chose for a milestone year birthday. had a deuce table near the front.
overall, giving it 4 stars. we have high expectations as foodies. the porkchop delivered but the fish was a little overcooked for our tastes, which knocked our rating down to a 4 overall.
service was top shelf and attentive.
desserts were tasty and well portioned. sipped some well balanced Bordeaux throughout the meal, from chop to choc pudding cake.
the other factor that brought JBs to a 4 was the unusually dim lighting and a hint of fish smell that washed over ua upon entering the restaurant.
guess we have sensitive noses and prefer a brighter atmosphere.
will return at some point but lots of other resties to explore b4 doing so.
In the course of many visits, John Bentley's has never disappointed me. The food, service, and ambience consistently create a very special experience . Most recently, I loved the black mission fig/gorgonzola cheese appetizer and the double-cut pork chop was the best I have ever eaten. Anytime, the sticky toffee pudding dessert is a must!
After a business meeting at Rosewood we decided to head over to Bentley’s. We enjoyed Tuna TT, Watermelon Crab Salad, Sweetbreads, Veal Medallions paired with Gls Mas Rose, bttl 2014 Turley ZIN Cedarman Howell Mtn. Excellent service. We learned that Bentley’s will be closing their doors next June 2018.
