Everything was very nice. They were short staffed, so service was a little slow. We weren’t in a hurry, so it wasn’t a problem. We enjoyed it very much!

As usual, the Brentwood was a lovely place to bring friends. The mixed grill and lamb shanks were wonderful. The shrimp & scallops chardonnay, which I had before, was served with penne pasta which didn't do the sauce justice. As a less hearty sauce, it should have been served with angel hair or linguine. That's how it was in the past and was a much better complement to the dish. The penne is too robust. All else was lovely.

First time visiting and it won't be the last! The food was absolutely delicious and portions were generous. Started with some tasty cocktails, followed by some escargot...AMAZING. Duck and pork osso bucco was wonderful. However, the highlight of the night was the chocolate souffle! THE BEST! You must order ahead when you order your dinner as it is housemade to order. If you're not sure that you'll have room after dinner, don't worry...you'll make room! It was perfect! Can't wait to go back. Definitely recommend

This is an amazing restaurant with wonderful hospitality!
Brian or server/ bartender upstairs was phenomenal!
Super knowledgeable, friendly and attentive!
My only complaint would be that before 8pm they ran out of three main dinner entrees!
Poor planning on the chefs part. We heard multiple servers have to apologize and explain to guests that they were out of items. A bit embarrassing for them I’m sure.

This is the best French restaurant in South Carolina! The drinks, the bread, the salad, the fantastic soup and the entrees were all outstanding. We were lucky to have Steve as our waiter. He was professional, friendly, attentive and efficient. We definitely will go back to the Brentwood restaurant for another terrific night out. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Loved this place so much! Absolutely beautiful and unique. The Beef Wellington and espresso creme brûlée were to die for. Only negative was another table being very loud and due to it being in an old home the tables are all very close so it was distracting. I would 100% recommend and return!

Food and service met the usual (high) standards. The standout for this visit was the new (to us) sommelier. The wine and wine service were exceptional. No trip to this area is complete without a dinner at Brentwood.

Food was excellent. Brian, the server was attentive, engaging, and helpful. Great personality. Owner and Chef Eric always prepares a wonderful meal reflecting his French birth and training. At the same time, it is casual and incorporates low country influences. One of our favorites.

The restaurant is located in an old home which has a charming atmosphere. Some rooms have a fireplace. The award winning bouillabaisse was disappointing. Seafood was tasteless and the broth watery lacking flavor. Partial refund was offered. Wonderful chocolate soufflé. Great service. Beef tip appetizer recommended.

I loved the food and we had a great server. The jazz music was great. The only thing we didn’t like was that our table was small for 4 people with a lobster bake. Maybe a bigger table would have been better

It never a disappointment at the Brentwood. We had the amazing fried shrimp appetizers, the shrimp were huge, so delicious. My husband had the duck served three ways, I had the braised short ribs. They were a joy to devour. We can not get enough of the Brentwood.

I had the pan-seared foie gras with carmelized apples, the surf and turf (lobster and filet mignon) and the chocolate souffle with grand marnier crème anglaise and raspberry sauce. The foie gras and the soufflé were excellent. The surf and turf course was good, but having to crack the claws on the lobster myself made the experience a little messy. The service from Eric was exceptional. The walls covered in wine bottle corks made the room in which I dined very unique.
