    The restaurant was beautiful and the food was very good. My 2 complaints was there was nobody to greet guests to be able to check us in for our reservation or the other 5 people that also walked in. It took 7 minutes before any even greated any of us. The other disappointment was our server. She was extremely slow and unattentive.

    For what you pay, it’s not good. Took over 30 minutes for overcooked halibut and a short rib. Butternut soup was so bland. Boyfriend had to add so much salt and pepper to make it edible. Halibut was barely seared and way over cooked and super bland. Not impressed and never going back.

    Our server was slow and the food was not up to what was ordered. The manager tried to make it up to us.

    They missed it completely on the prime rib. Several tables in our immediate area sent it back. I had a rare endcut. Not by choice. Dinner salad was without flavor, one beet salad was undressed, and lobster was undercooked. Very disappointing overall. Drinks and the three dips and chips were good. Rough day for them obviously.

    We had a reservation for 2 for Easter Sunday Brunch. Arrived on time. Had to wait 20 mins for a table. Once seated, we sat at the table at least 15 minutes before server acknowledged us. We ordered drinks and water. After waiting 20 minutes for server to bring the drinks, we asked if she would at least bring the water. The server apologized and said she didn't bring the drinks, because they had to bring out some additional cases of wine from the back. About 5 minutes later she brought water, juice and sparkling wine -- and took food order. After waiting for food, approximately 30 minutes, the manager came to our table and apologized for the slowness of the kitchen service. She then presented us with another bottle sparkling wine. By then, we were pretty "buzzed" from drinking wine and juice -- and just wanted the food order. Asked for a bag to take the second bottle of wine home. Husband had ordered the hash and eggs, which he said was good -- not great. I had the steak and bacon tacos. The steak was nearly raw. The tortillas were cold. The beans were too salty to eat. We have eaten at Bennett's before and the food and service were great. Easter Sunday Brunch and restaurant service was disappointing.
