Food choices and serving sizes were very good. Actual taste of food was good but not as good as hoped. Service was good, but there was at least a 30-minute period between finishing our salads and receiving the main entree - that was not the server's fault.

Our dining experience totally exceeded our expectations. We loved the table side preparation of Chateaubriand and the Bananas Foster. This is "old school" elegance that you don't see any more. The food was exceptional! The menu diverse. The service was fantastic and our server was very knowledgeable. The owner, Jimmy, came by our table at the end of the evening. He regaled us with interesting stories about various wineries and winemakers. He also gave us a complimentary glass of his favorite Chardonnay. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Worth every dime. Our waiter (forgot his name) recommended the ribeye and Alaskan crag legs. And he was right! My business partner had a lemon drop and I have glass of blanc. Can't wait to return with the hubs.

First and last time dining at this restaurant.
Took in-laws visiting from overseas. What a mistake. The service was awful, especially for this price point. We waited an hour just to get our appetizers. The server said our appetizers went to the wrong table. So they had to make them again. The server had no table etiquette whatsoever, as he was putting his fingers in the middle of the appetizer plates while carrying them and exhibiting other unacceptable manners.
We asked for the check so we could just pay for our drinks and leave since it was taking so long and he physically blocked my husband from getting up and insisted that we stay and he would pay for their mistake. The manager was aware of the situation and never even came to our table to acknowledge anything or offer an apology. To add insult to injury, they didn’t take a single thing off the bill or apply any type of discount even though the server said he would.
We will never return to this restaurant again. I would be surprised if they make it much longer with this type of service..

Don’t waste your time or your money. There is nothing special about this restaurant. The food simply not good. The grouper was tough as it was overcooked and their version of oyster Rockefeller is bland.
The service was actual worse then the food. Waiter was chewing gum when he came to the table to take the order. When the appetizer was delivered to table, it was just “plopped on the table” - no friendly dialogue with any staff.
I don’t think Bentley’s will be around for a too long. Overpriced, bad food and poor service.
