My wife and I very much enjoyed the food and service.
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!!
This is our restaurant when it comes to best romantic, best food, best overall, best service restaurant in the Peninsula.
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!
Too noisy at lunch, slow service,overpriced! Coffee at $5 is ridiculous!!!
Great place to eat. Sorry to hear it is closing down in a couple of months.
Sure gonna miss this place! Been coming here for years and they are closing the doors at the end of March.
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.
It doesn't get much better than this. Service is wonderful. Menu is excellent. Food is exquisite. A very special place.
Another delicious dinner here with great service. I will miss this place!
GREAT EVENING. SUPERB FOOD, EXCELLENT SERVICE, NICE AMBIANCE.
JOHN BENTEY'S IS REALLY REALLY GOOD.
SORRY TO HEAR THEY WILL CLOSE MARCH 31ST. WE WILL MISS IT.
WILL GO BACK 2/3 TIMES B/4 THEIR CLOSING.
Food and service always outstanding. Sorry they are c[osing soon
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!
Delicious food - wonderful service - good cocktails!
Our second time celebrating my birthday at this wonderful restaurant. The scallops were just as memorial as our first visit. My husband and I had the same entrée: the scallops and our table mates had the huge pork chop and the sweet breads. I am very sad this delicious menu will be no more after March 2018. I hope the owner will miss the business and open another restaurant in another location; otherwise, my taste buds will have to dine on memory alone...
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Bentley's with some family we had in from out of town!
Everything about the evening was so extraordinary. Our waiter (Dean) was so engaging, efficient, and knowledgeable! He did not rush us but was there if we needed anything . He was terrific!
The food was also terrific from the salads to the main courses, we all so enjoyed our dinners. The space was just noisy enough to carry on our conversations without hearing or bothering any of our fellow patrons.
We have had many dinners and lunch at Bentley's and have never been disappointed.
Always delicious and consistent. It’s such a loss that they will be closing end of March.
John Bentley's is my favorite restaurant in the bay area. I've been meaning to go back for a long time, and finally did last Friday. Sad to hear they are closing. I think the building has been sold. What a shock.
