We had a dinner reservation and was seated in the bar area. There was one waitress who also served as the bar tender. We waited almost two hours to get our meals. We did not get what we ordered. Menu was over priced and had limited choices.

My wife and I have never repeated an anniversary dinner in 22 years. We came back to have the tasting menu again at Brentwood. 7 courses of mind blowing cuisine. We live hundreds of miles away, but will be back every year when we are down on vacation. An absolute treasure!

We really enjoyed our dinner. It was for my 50th birthday and I had my 4 month old grandson with us. I was worried at first about bringing a young baby but he just peacefully slept in his baby seat and we enjoyed a lovely dinner. The food was great and the ambiance was quaint and peaceful. I highly recommend.

Brentwood was a surprise find. Ambiance was superb. 6:30pm reservations found a quiet dining room with unique decor; cork walls requiring about 8000 wine bottle corks, framed shadow boxes highlighting corkscrews and kitchen utensils, and a tongue-in-groove ceiling. The service was attentive, the food prepared to order. French cuisine and on-site owner/chef all but guarantees a unique and fine experience.

The menu was better than the food. It was just ok.

My Mother in Law had the Pork which she liked. My wife the scallops, shrimp and pasta. Ok.

I had the Beef Wellington. The pastry was too soft and the beef was just ok. Not a prime filet.

Just ok. Not bad. Not great. Average and expensive for Myrtle Beach. Two glasses of wine, onion soup, 3 entries and a shared desert. $170 including tip.

We love this place! You won’t find anything else like it in South Carolina. The chef came by at the end of our meal to see how the food was and we all four agreed it was excellent. We will go again.

Skip the French onion soup and the creme brulee. Filet and stuffed lobster were excellent. It is an hour drive for us, so we probably wont be back.

First of all, the setting and ambiance are very nice. We started with a glass of champagne and St Jacques scallops, which were delicious. The bread is very tasty, which you’d expect in a French restaurant. The salad with beets was good. I had the short ribs, which were outstanding. My wife had the delicious salmon. We shared a nice bottle of Cahors Malbec, a good value. We finished with creme brûlée and coffee. It was a lovely evening. We were visiting the area from Athens, GA. We’ll definitely come back on our next trip over.

This was the first time we were disappointed at Brentwood. The service was slow and the server had difficulty answering questions about ingredients. Unforgivable- the grits were over salted. This is SC - grits are our specialty and need to be just right. I hope this was just an "off" night.

Without a doubt the finest food in the North-of-Myrtle-Beach area. Authentic French chef personally provides classic high-end French, billed as “country French” but this is underselling so as not to scare people off his gorgeously presented, generous portions (...we took food home both nights we ate there) of classic French dishes. A few highlights from two nights there in June: She crab soup was loaded with fresh crab and luscious but not too oily cream soup; French onion soup had translucent onions in an almost black dark-brown umami-rich beef broth (all almost overpowering as a starter unless you were going full meat the next course); sesame crusted ahi tuna appetizer was perfectly sous vide for seconds and extremely fresh; main course Coquilles St Jacques were perfection, gorgeously brown and moist, not the rubber hockey pucks one encounters so often at lazier places; main course sesame crusted ahi tuna was more of the delightful appetizer (had this as main on a subsequent night) and the jasmine rice was wonderfully al dente; braised boneless short ribs were said by spouse to be very juicy and tasty, forkable and well cooked and the accompanying vegetables and potato very satisfying (portion was huge of the beef and provided next days lunch); special shrimp and scallops stew looked great (spouse had this); desserts looked great on the menu but we were usually too stuffed. Service both nights was crisp and helpful with the southern warmth that one NEVER gets in France! Both. Ignite the chef came around and asked personally how things ere and seemed genuinely interested in the answers; that concern shows in the food. Wine list was surprisingly good value with very thoughtful mid-price wines carefully curated. Definitely an expensive meal if you were last at the 4:30 Early Bird fried food places lining the highway, but for a special meal at the beach, this place cannot be beat.

Really good French food is hard to come by. I just wish the people who sat in our room weren’t sharing every experience and thought they ever had in their life with each other by yelling across the room. Very bad manners. Great food. Disrespectful patrons.

Overall, we really like this restaurant and have been several times. We took friends to celebrate a birthday this past weekend. Food and service were great. Expected to be seated in a better location since we were one party of maybe 3 or 4 for the whole restaurant at 6:00. Maybe looking out of a window? Instead we were seated in a room with one window that was covered with a shade. The ladies sat with our backs to the room b/c there was an air conditioning vent that was blasting cold air on the “good” side of the table. A little disappointed in the experience for our friends since it was their first time at the restaurant.

Food was good not outstanding in my opinion. Scallops could have been sweeter and more tender. Husband had beef Wellington which he enjoyed. Creme brûlée was average.
