Our dinner and evening at Bentley's was wonderful as usual! The Dover Sole was perfect and our appetizers (Daily Oyster Selection & Steak Tartare) were delicious. Our server took excellent care of us and helped us in deciding on our wine (very pleased). Attentive as always, he remembered our preferences from our last visit (or takes great notes). We will be back....it's becoming our favorite!

Third time visiting and it was bad enough to be our last. Poor service , food was disappointing, the veal chop was sent back twice. No one came to check on us until I was finished with my entree and we had to send my wife’s entree back. Wrong wine was brought to the table. Felt neglected by the staff. Manager checked on numerous tables except ours. Won’t be back.

This is a GREAT restaurant for a special occasion like our wedding anniversary. Spendy but worth every dollar for a special night out. Staff was magnificent and food was superb. Highly recommend escargot and chateaubriand.

This was my first dining experience at Bentley’s and I absolutely don’t regret it.
FOOD: we dined with the NYE menu; appetizers and dessert were both included with the price of the entree. APPETIZERS: Oysters Bentley and Tuna Nachos were delightful. ENTREE: Our steaks were amazing - we got a ribeye and a filet. The filet was thick and cooked immaculately. Ribeye was a very generous portion and cooked excellent as well. Even the mashed potatoes were something to write home about. DESSERT: The dessert didn’t wow me quite as much as the entree and appetizer but it was still tasty. But you don’t go to a steak restaurant for dessert right? DRINKS: QC Old Fashioned and the Barkley Sapphire were delightful. Priced reasonably at $15 each - this is typically the price you pay for lackluster, overly sweet, over poured drinks anywhere else.

10/10 recommend

We dined in a restaurant that took an hour to bring us mediocre food. And I say mediocre because all though; delicious served ice cold. Who'd want to send that back knowing the initial wait time. I had never been to this restaurant so you can only imagine how excited I was to die for it only to be the exact opposite of what we hope for.

Love Bentleys and it was in the downtown Charlotte area and was excited about celebrating there. No valet parking(unexpected). Food was amazing as always. Our waiter did nothing to make the experience great. IF He was hired to bring out food and remove empty plates, I guess he did his job; however taking notice of other waiters. I was disappointed in my service for sure. Never received the restaurants special or recommendations prior to dining, as other guest did. ,We Had to ask if there was a dessert menu, due to them not being on the menu, then had to flag down another waiter to ask for the check. Due to etiquette I left a 20% tip, which would have been more. But wish I could have left a tip according to the service I received. Should have gone somewhere else. I’ve had options where the service and food are always amazing. Restaurants that make your celebration special and make it look as thought you did an amazing job on the details. Yet I left apologize about my choice.

Dinner and the atmosphere was amazing. The server was horrible. We waited at least 20 minutes before she came and got our drink order and then asked ohhhh no one got your order. I was like ma'am your the server. Brought the butter with no rolls

Husband and I decided to come to Bentley's for our anniversary dinner. The food is outstanding! We saw lots of the traditional French fare, as well as some interesting twists on the classics. We had a little of both, and we could not have been happier. The service was also top-notch, and we received wonderful recommendations from our two servers. They have quite a lengthy wine menu, so there's probably something for a lot of palates. Overall, a wonderful place to have a special occasion dinner.
